We use to come here when La Serena was new and comparisons may seem unfair but for the prices we paid for 3 rooms, it's inevitable. Because we had a dog we were given a room that overlooked the neighboring business's big trash bins. This made fresh air a little dicey. The housekeeping staff was excellent, the desk staff not...

This hotel has a great atmosphere, it is noticed that the hotel decoration had been made with loving hands. The stuff is freindly. Free coffee at the lobby and a clean coin-laundry room. Nice and clean rooms, spacious enough for 2 double beds + suitcases.

This was our first time at this hotel. We will definitely stay here again. Great accomodations and friendly staff. Parking is not an issue here like at some other places. We were celebrating my wife's birthday.

Friendly staff, big rooms, and free parking at La Serena. Enjoyed our stay here, only a five minutes walk from the waterfront, with restaurants and shops, and a nice view over the bay. The rooms are clean, with big and comfortable beds. Bathtub, no separate shower. The included breakfast is ok, if rather sparse when it comes to the selection,... More

Very nice Hotel. The room was very nice and really big. It was in a nice location close to the water. The town is very nice and has a great beach feel. They have a decent free breakfast. The air conditioner was really loud.

Stayed at La Serena Inn for two nights at the end of May of 2016. The hotel is pretty clean, and the location is great, close to the Morro Rock and some restaurants (even though I had trouble finding restaurants still serving food at later hours). The room is a little outdated, but it's still fine. Breakfast was pretty nice,... More

A nice hotel that is walking distance to all the attractions in Morro Bay. We even ventured out to the rock twice and it was easy!!!! They also have a continental breakfast that is nice. Our room was clean and everything in working order. We'll be back!!!

The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet and a nice size. There is also a spa and gym you can use at one of their partner hotels down the street. It was very close to Morro Rock which was nice.

Planned 7 weeks ahead so as to get the suite we wanted that had 2 balconies. Very disappointed with the suite as it needs attention. The much-advertised view of the rock from the window and balcony was at least two-thirds obstructed by a palm tree that was in desperate need of trimming. The sliding door on the other balcony was...

This hotel is in a great location and it has the basic things. No frills AND uncomfortable beds!!! Breakfast had no smart choices except hard boiled eggs. Peanut butter was poor quality; bread was only Wonder like bread. Would not repeat this. But it is two blocks from the Bay!
