“Great place for short stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This inn might be old, but it is very clean and cheap in comparison to other hotels. It comes with free internet and cable tv. The lady boss is very friendly and helpful and told us she has been running the inn for 30 years. Gave us a free upgrade to King bed, seeing that we have a baby with us. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a short stay.

Great hotel for this price range. The room was spotless, nothing was broken or needing repair. They really take care of the place. They also have lots of beautiful plants around the hotel. Friendly service. Excellent location - walking distance to shops and beach. Their rooms have lots of nice decorative touches. And they also have the famous "magic fingers" vibrating bed. Comfortable beds. You'll get a good night's sleep. Shower head had adjustable settings also. Strong wi-fi signal.

We have stayed at the Sundown Inn several times and have always found it a pleasant experience. The owners are on premises and take pride in their establishment. The location is convenient to Morro Bay attractions, actually walking distance to the waterfront shops and restaurants.

I figured since this place had so many good reviews that this was a safe pick. Check in was easy (make reservations because this place fills quickly.) I was upgraded from a queen bed to king at no charge since a couple decided to stay longer-which I would like to say was nice and professional. As the reviews all state, yes, the room was clean. Small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, and flatscreen tv were available. And let's not forget the "Magic Fingers Massage" bed mechanism: 25 cents gives you 15 mins of subtle, low noise vibration. It was a little quirky, but of course we tried it. The room had a dresser, 2 nightstands, sufficient lighting (4 lamps, 1 in closet, and bathroom) a small table, heater, and telephone. Little vanity area, which helps when someone is occupying the small bathroom. Walk in closet, which was a nice suprise. Cable tv, including HBO. Bathroom was very clean, stand up shower, heat lamp, sufficient towels (standard white hotel set.) On an aesthetic note, the exposed beams and whitewashed ceilings were very cute, a sailboat mural on the wall, little lace table doilies on the dressers, nightstands and table. Parking right by our door, potted plants outside and very clean plaza. The location is great! Right across the street is a pizza place. Within a 3-4 block walk, you have 2 bars, small boutiques, mexican food, hot dog place, surfshops, health food cafe, a place called "cork and bottle" which has a HUGE selection of local wines and microbrew. Made to order deli items and other snacks and necessities you would find in a convenient store. all small town mom and pops kind of establishments. We checked in on a Satursday and was pleasantly suprised that the local farmer's market was was 3-6pm on main street, a stone throw from the motel. We loaded up on kettlekorn, cookies and sampled local olives, oatmeal and enjoyed the comapny of a local "pirate," which made for a great photo op, and a celloist playing in the background. Basically it was a great experience for my boyfriend and I. If you're looking for a crazy nightlife, this isn't the place for you. But small town, quaint, beach beauty, great seafood, tourist shops, is what you will get. One smalle detail I would like to mention, at check-in we had the option of cash or credit for a payment upfront...which I think some may find helpful. I reccomend this place to anyone!

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on a number of occasions. The location is great. The rooms are clean. I plan on staying here many more times. The hotel staff is very nice and is always quick to answer requests that are given to them. I love the fact you can walk to the embarcadero and walk to all the shops and bars on Main Street.

Room Tip: Clean rooms, coffee makers, refrigerators, big closets

Great price. $60/night with AAA membership. King room, walk in closet.
Run by local family, who was very hospitable.
The motel is an older building, so outside noises carried into the room.
The room was clean, had a nice cozy cottage feel to it. Amenities were all adequate.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Online deals available.

This is true value. Great reviews and a low low price compared to the chain motels. Older building but well maintained. Defintely in need of some updating in the bathrooms etc but can't complain. A good spot for us to stop on coming down from Sf and heading to La.
