Really nice hotel with nice and friendly staff. Room was clean. Bed was comfy. Only bad thing I can say about this hotel room was a few stains on the carpet and a missing closet mirror /door. Within walking distance to the beach and shops. Would definitely stay here again!

On our California coast road trip as four couples. we stayed at this hotel for one night. Good location, with the stunning view of Morro Rock in the morning from breakfast area. Very good breakfast, including waffles. Rooms were clean and quite large. Hotel receptionist was friendly and provided good service. All and all, price/performance was great.

The Inn was clean, quiet, and a block or two from shops, restaurants, and Embarcadero area. If you choose accordingly, you get a view of the rock or the water. The furnishing and decor is dated but fine. I'd stay there again.

The hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to block to town with lots of bayfront restaurants, bars, and shops. There are three floors with rooms facing the Harbor on one side, and overlooking a parking lot and nightclub on the other side, so ask for the Oceanside because it's not very serene on the backside!

We stayed here on a family trip to California. It was the perfect location to visit the beaches, which were lovely at the end of August. The location was excellent, very near the water front, restaurants, and shops. The property was safe and clean, with all needed amenities. A very nice hot breakfast that was clean and not crowded was... More

Make no mistake, this is an older property with a few issues here and there, but the rooms are clean, the staff is nice, and the views of Morro Bay and Morro Rock are pretty fantastic. It's quiet, noise between rooms is minimal, and the usual amenities are to be found from hair dryers, microwaves and mini fridge to new-ish... More

Took my wife and sons to Morro Bay for a beautiful weekend. Great room, great location (Walked to everywhere from your room) Farmers Market right next door! Will come again. Im sure there are better places for the money but, we felt is was worth it.

We made a same-day booking thru an online app and got a good rate. Nice place, large and open spaces, big rooms, decent breakfast included, and desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. Building looks like angular 80's style but is upgraded and has modern features. Covered parking under the building. Our room had a small balcony so we could... More

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...
