If you are travelling in Morro Bay and want to stay in a classic "old school" California motel, then the Sundown Inn is where you want to be. This place is a vintage "mom and pop" run motel with a great location close to both downtown and the waterfront. Plenty of places to eat and shop close by. Walking distance to Morro Bay's nightlife and during the car show this place is booked solid, so seasonal travellers should plan accordingly.
This place screams Americana, right down to the "Magic Fingers" bed vibrators wich appear to be original and still work! But just because the place is vintage do not assume that it is run down or low quality. Through all my travels in California I have not run across a cleaner hotel than this.
The Lins make regular tasteful upgrades where they count. You will always have a well appointed room, though without many frills: A modern flat screen TV that will always work, a dependable wireless connection, a neat little fridge [perfect to keep that six pack nice and chilly!], a micro, a little coffee maker that works good and is always stocked with coffee and creamers. The showers are steaming hot and the rooms are real cosy with old wall heaters that are very well maintained, not those big noisy plastic monstrosities you get at many of the national chains.
When you stay at the Sundown Inn you are staying at a truly family owned and run operation. And they really do care about your comfort. This is what keeps people like me coming back here again and again.
