“Family weekend away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Super cute hotel with character! Extremely clean, updated bedding and decor, lots of towels. Smaller rooms because it is an older hotel but with the updates it doesn't feel old at all! We stayed in room 8 which was perfect for 5 of us (Although it was very close quarters) king bed, queen bed and a single. Room had a fridge, micro wave, coffee maker and flat screen tv. Also had our dogs and this hotel is super pet friendly. We got a welcome pack for the dogs consisting of a dish, dog blanket, treats and pet friendly restaurants. You can walk to everything. Loved our stay.

The rooms were very clean and well decorated, and the check in/out process was very easy. It was located one block from the water, overlooking Morro Rock. It made for a romantic stay. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in probably the biggest (room 1) and definitely the smallest (room 5) of the units at this property. Both were nicely decorated and laid out. The large room was spacious, with nice seating areas and a workable kitchen. The smaller room is only rented after you look at it, because it's really tiny. The manager was very nice and not overly upset with a situation that we had with the key stuck in the lock. She and my husband worked to get the doorknob off for some time, but it didn't work out. Fortunately, there was another door we could use - just left the chain on the door with the problem. Somehow, after much unproductive effort, including some from an experienced carpenter, the key just came out when someone else tried to pull it out.

Great value, great location, restful nights' sleep.

The Pleasant Inn more than lives up to its name, from the friendly welcome on arrival to the comfortable bed and quiet location, a short walk to the Morro Rock, waterfront and restaurants. The bedroom was very clean and elegantly decorated. It made good use of the space with a king bed and two cushy chairs around a table big enough for a dinner made in the compact kitchen. The furniture and decoration all looked new. A big window with plantation shutters that open fully let a lot of light into the room even though it was close to the fence on the property line, and it was a nice touch that plants and decorations have been placed along the fence to give it the feel of a miniature garden. The kitchen is older but very well maintained, more that sufficient for whipping up some quick meals. The shower had good water pressure and the towels were fluffy and soft. As others have noted, the Pleasant Inn provides very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Room 4, with a king bed and kitchen, is on the corner farthest from the main road and was quiet.

We stayed for a week at the Pleasant Inn in Morro Bay and what a find! It is a small nostalgic type motel reminiscent of those from the 60's that has been updated in the past couple of years. Big bonus is that Sandy the manager is there on site, is well invested in the area, and has a wealth of information and suggestions to make your stay an adventure and enjoyable. Our unit had a "full" kitchen. There is a stove and oven, mini fridge and microwave. For the most part, the kitchen is equipped but could be updated with new cooking and prep wares, they are a bit dated. It sufficed for the amount of meals we were planning to make since the area was so rich in dining and eating establishments. With that said, the motel is an easy walk down to the Embarcadero that hosts a great array of restaurants and some shops as well as Main Street that boasts the same. If you are staying for the weekend, park your car and leave it if your goal is to get to know Morro Bay. The "Rock" is within blocks, great dining almost at your front door, and a stroll on the beach within easy reach and access by foot (1/2 or so mile). The only downside was internet/wifi access. It was hit and miss.This was a working vacation and we were forced to rely on our portable travelling device services. Another issues was that there is not a hair dryer in the bathroom or any outlets within reach to plug one in if you brought your own. We went to a drug store and bought a multi-plug surge protector so we could use our printer and computer. With that said, we will definitely return. It is a charming and wonderful establishment.

Room Tip: One with a full kitchen.

Hello 4everjung!

Love the name by the way.... Thank you for staying with us and all the great feedback regarding our little inn and special comments about Sandy our property manager. We really appreciate you taking the time to pass onto others about your visit and Morro Bay. I will check on the internet to see why a lack of full access and fix it asap so others don't experience the same type of issue.

I will pass onto Sandy your wonderful comments too and we hope you will return again and maybe not have to work while visiting, hehehehe.

Have a wonderful week!
