“Very Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

My husband and I ended up at the Sandpiper (formally the Rodeway) after walking out of a different motel north of town (dirty room, inconvenient location, incredibly loud). The woman at the Sandpiper (I think other reviewers have said her name is Priscilla) was wonderful, and I really regret not doing more research before we arrive in Morro Bay. When we told Priscilla what happened and why we needed a room, she gave us both a discount and an upgraded room. She also gave us discounts for local restaurants and lots of advice for what to see in the area as well as on the rest of our trip up the coast. Her friendly, courteous attitude was wonderful after our experience at the other motel. The motel itself is older, but clean and charming. It reminded me of a classic seaside motel. The outside is clean and well kept - you can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the building. The room was very clean and decorated in bright, beachy colors. There were plenty of nice, thick towels. All was quiet at night, and we slept very well. The location was great too as all of the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Great view of the rock too. All in all, a very pleasant stay!

We are coastal lovers, so it was nice to find a reasonable hotel in this beautiful town. I was concerned with a low price I was ready to be disappointed, so surprised it was very clean, comfortable and the lady in the office was very nice. We will be staying here again ASAP!!
Room 14 is our favorite, best view!!!
When we are in the mood to step it up to pricey and wonderful we will of course go to the wonderful Back Bay Inn in nearby Los Osos, their waterfront rooms are great!!

Now known as the Sandpiper, this is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed at. The owner is very helpful and gives special coupons for local restaurants. She also has placed an individual touch with all the gardening work she has done on the property.

All in all a great place to stay and we will be back time and time again!

Room Tip: Second floor has a better view!

We have stayed here several times. Staff is very nice, polite, and go out of their way to help and make the visit enjoyable. The property is older, but is well kept and the rooms very clean with comfortable beds. Nice plants and plenty of parking. Close to town and the harbor - easy walk. Good value. We will be back again!! Thank You Priscilla!

The Morro Bay Sandpiper Inn (formally known as Rodeway Inn) is a great place to stay. It is very clean, easy on the wallet, staffed with good, polite people, and centrally located. Just the place to go for a nice, quiet get-a-way....

Room Tip: Every room that I have stayed in was very adequate for me..

Well worth the price tag
Stellar service from the staff, everyone was friendly. Location was very impressive. Everything is walking distant. We watch the fireworks from the parking lot and had some popcorn. No hassel on finding parking. Very clean room. Breakfast hit the spot. Ask about the aquarium your kids will love it.

Room Tip: Second floors for some ocean views.
