I spent two nights at the Sundown Motel while waiting for my car to get fixed.
From the outside, it looks like a 50s-style motel that was recently renovated - U-shape, courtyard for the cars, room entrances right from the parking lot, just one story. The facility is definitely older, but the rooms have been renovated in the most delightful way, plus everything's functional, very clean and smells good. My room had a recent model microwave, fridge and coffee maker, and a coin-op "Magic Fingers Massaging Bed" control unit that looked like it had been teleported in from the 50s (in new condition!). I didn't try it, but I'm sure it would have worked like everything else.
To top it all off, the motel is in walking distance from downtown Morro Bay with all the shops and restaurants.
There's free wireless internet which worked well for me (I was working remotely all day). Signal strength got a bit spotty every now and then, especially when someone had parked a car into the line of sight between my laptop and the lobby, but nothing that opening the room door and sitting in the entrance wouldn't have fixed :-)
Oh yeah, and the lady in the lobby was very friendly and made me feel welcome.
In summary, the Sundown Motel is probably not the right place for a honeymoon stay, but if you need a good, comfortable, clean place to spend a few nights in Morro Bay, I warmly recommend it!
