Pacific shores needs some updating. The rooms are nice however could use refurbishing. Building is looking a bit tired too. Location is excellent with a great view of the bay and rock. Close to food and shopping

I called ahead for same day reservation on a Friday night w/minimal notice (around 4pm arrived 9pm-ish) We travel quite often as a military family, & can honestly say one of the best if not THE GREATEST for location & value. True as other reviews state that this is an under 5 star hotel but for the cost, FRIENDLY customer... More

The reason for writing this review is to recommend travelers NOT to stay here. I guess if you got a really cheap rate and wanted just a place to sleep, then it would be OK. Very outdated rooms, noisy wall heater, unfriendly staff. Take note: their website advertised an indoor hot tub, but this is not the case. There used... More

We stayed for one night here. The room was basic, clean and comfortable. What makes us remember it was that the manager took the trouble to recommend a local restaurant, the Otter Rock Café, for dinner, which we enjoyed very much.

In my review earlier I mentioned the most awesome bar/restaurant/live music in Morro Bay but I could not remember the name. It's OTTER ROCK CAFE at 855 Embarcadero, right on the bay. Check it out, a blast. As a bonus there's a duo playing music, one on acoustic guitar and one on electric. May be a Father/Son duo. They were... More

Got such a good price while booking room during the drive from Sonoma to Morro Bay that I did not expect a great experience. Surprise! Great rate, huge room, view, clean, smelled good (unlike Motel 6 in Rohnert Park the night before) , all amenities we needed, walked to Bay and found the greatest Bar/Restaurant/Live Music, and comfortable bed!

The rooms are in need of updating,but are clean with comfy beds.I was sitting at the table writing an e-mail with the window open,and i could hear the... More

We came in very late and Keith set us up quickly and was very helpful. The room was nice for this price range and there was even a fireplace in the room. I'm not sure if we were allowed to use it, but it was still very cozy.

I have stayed at the Pacific Shores Inn on three occasions in the last few months; each time I was very happy with the price, cleanliness, & staff. Keith, at the front desk, is professional, friendly, and helpful. He greeted me as warmly when I arrived at midnight as he did when I arrived at 4:00 p.m. I have stayed... More
