A wonderful oasis in Morro Bay. Mollie is a great host in a family centred business and made us very welcome. I concur with the other reviews.

We stayed at the Anderson Inn for two evenings. The hosts - Jeff, Mollie and Roger could not have been more accomodating and helpful. This is a family run inn and they are the epitomy of the old fashioned definition of service. They did everything to make sure that our stay was just what we wanted. The facility is very... More

We stayed at the Anderson Inn as a stopover on our trip around California and wish we'd stayed longer. Truthfully, there isn't much to do in Morro Bay itself, but the Inn was in the best location looking out on the Rock (no mist!), and the host Jeff was very friendly. On Jeff's recommendation, we dined in the Galley and... More

We arrived at Anderson Inn on a whim from Trip advisor - wow this was the best decision ever! From the amazing greeting and warmth from Molly to the sublime quality of the room and the thoughtful extras such as Ipod docking stations - crabtree and evelyn toiletries, the bed with the feather pillows and duvets, omg, then to the...

Exceptional hotel. The service was off the scale. The room was immaculate. I was expecting a bit of noise at night - being so close to a couple of bars and the main street - but apart from the gulls and the odd seal it was silent after 11pm. We stayed here en route from LA to San Francisco and... More

I agree with most of what has already been said- clean, fresh rooms, pleasing decor, good waterfront location, etc. This is a very small, family-run inn- not like a B&b, though, it's set up as a hotel- it just has only 8-10 rooms. It's sophisticated, cozy and nice. My husband and I spent the weekend exploring Morro Bay, Hearst, Cambria,... More

I can't say enough good things about this place, all th staff we dealt with, email, phone and face to face were all really helpful. We only stayed for one night, we arrived quite late but were still shown personally to our room. The room was beautifully appointed, well laid out and was just perfect. We had a balcony overlooking... More

Found this hotel while looking on TripAdvisor for a place to stay in Morro Bay. I seriously doubted that this place could be as perfect as all the reviews made it sound, so I made the reservation while maintaining a healthy does of skepticism. All doubts flew out the window as soon as we pulled in and met Mollie. She... More

Wonderful welcome from Mollie (and Rodger and Jeff). Rooms are outstanding - very luxurious and immaculately clean. We had a premium room 'over the water' and could have sat in the comfy armchairs all day looking at the view - this room had the 'wow' factor. Our teenage children shared a 2 bed queen deluxe which still had a balcony... More

We traveled through Morro Bay on a trip down the California Coast. The Anderson Inn is right on the water with stunning views. Morro Bay is a quaint little village with small shops and restaurants. A nice place to spend a day or two. When we checked in, Molly greeted us as if we were family. She showed us our... More
