A lovely stay at the Estero Inn in Morro Bay Cal. !! We celebrated an anniversary and also attended the festivities at the annual Harbor Fest going on thru the weekend. The hotel is still fairly new , 5yrs maybe? It certainly looks new. Well kept rooms and property. Our room was the Sandy Dunes Suite. It was upstairs, very cozy, with a wall fireplace and small balcony outside with a table & two chairs, just enough room to sit and have coffee or drinks and gaze out at the bay & dunes across the way. The room was quiet and spacious for us. The a/c unit was a bit loud , but efficient. There was also a screen door on the balcony so you could let the cool night air in as well.
Down stairs was a small room for breakfast featuring, do it yourself bagels, coffee, juices, yogurt, fruit, cereals etc., plenty of choices. Also adjoining is a room with a few tables, books, papers, mags and a single computer for your use.
Ample parking is provided for guests right next to the building, so no worries about that.
The staff was very friendly and quite helpful. We met the proprietor, Ken, a very nice gentleman who is also a native of the area. He made great conversation and told some stories and history of the bay. He also gave some tips on areas to visit not far from the hotel.
Awesome time at the Estero, we loved it. We have stayed at the Inn at Morro Bay before too, it was very nice but high end on the pricing and far away from the action, The Estero Inn location is perfect if you like to stay right down at the sea shore, especially if you want to explore the embarcadero and sample the great foods and many fine wines & beers !!! No driving necessary !!! You can stay at a less expensive no frills hotel, it really comes down to what kind of experience you want, for us , the anniversary was well spent at the Estero !
p.s. right next door is a great spa / massage suite, Awaken Harmony, Melissa is a fantastic therapist and provides several treatments. End your day with a massage and walk home...next door.
