My husband and I stayed here with our two boys last weekend. The Inn is beautiful and so conveniently located. We enjoyed walking along the Embarcadero and it was a bonus to walk to dinner and breakfast. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We will be back, but stay longer next time!

My fiancee and I had a great overnight stay. Upon check in the hotel owners were extremely and sincerely pleasant and helpful. She showed us the room, have us suggestions on,places to grab breakfast in town and showed us how to use the shower as it is not overly intuitive. We had the room with two balconies, one view of...

My review is very much a repeat of all of the other excellent reviews that can be read on here. The hotel is lovely, the rooms are beautiful and the hands on service is exceptional. I would highly recommend staying here. A special mention has to go to Mollie, who kept us calm when I thought we had lost our... More

We just loved our stay at Anderson Inn. Service began pre arrival with personalised emails asking for milk/cream preferences for our morning coffee etc. Mollie was the ultimate host, she was vibrant, enthusiastic and so knowledgable. Beyond that very welcoming. Room was fabulous, bathroom and shower impeccable. Highly recommended. Wish we were able to stay longer.

I can see that writing my review in a paragraph format could make for the longest review ever written. That's because, if you've read any of their other reviews, you'll see that the superlatives are endless. So I will try to bullet point my thoughts: *Mollie/Jeff = Nicest people ever! *Mollie noticed that we hadn't parked yet. It was Father's... More

This was our favorite stay during our trip to California. We absolutely loved our room and the location....we only wish that we could have stayed longer. The day before our arrival we had an e-mail from Mollie to ask how we liked our coffee (cream or black) so she could stock the room and also gave us some great tips... More

Staying in Morro Bay and at the Anderson Inn turned out to be the highlight of our recent trip to Northern California. Hotel - Both Mollie and Jeff Anderson made us feel sooooo welcome and were extremely helpful when we had any questions, queries or issues. Their customer service was second to none, and some of you larger organisations should... More

This place exemplifies why I love traveling in the Big Sur area - a family owned businesses that pays attention to every detail. We stayed in a basic 2 queen room, only staying there for one night, yet we were treated by the Andersons as if we were the most important guest in the world. I knew this was going... More

The Anderson Inn is really the only place I would recommend staying in Morro Bay. The boutique family run inn is perfect. The Anderson family is a delight, so friendly, fun to chat with and they work hard to make your stay perfect. The rooms are large, comfortable, bright and immaculately clean with great views from each room, while the... More

Not much to add to the other reviews except we found the same lovely friendly service and advice, recommend the premium rooms with view, the restaurant also fabulous. Otters float past on their backs, sea lions call (all night!) and elephant seals on nearby coastal beach.
