We had a great stay here. Excellent in terms of access to Morro Bay and the whole region; a great value. Huge quiet room with a king sized bed, couch, etc. Great breakfast too!

Reviewed June 19, 2011

Having been recommended by friends, we spent two nights at La Serena. From the minute we arrived until we checked out, we couldn’t have asked for more. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. The “guide to Morro Bay,” written by the staff, included everything from restaurant reviews to where to watch birds and was perhaps the most helpful...

We stayed at La Serena over Memorial Day weekend. Even though the inn was full, it didn't feel like we were tripping over the other guests. The breakfast bar was clean and well-stocked, and my kids loved the free wifi for all their gadgets. The room was spacious and clean, and it's always nice to have a fridge and microwave....

This hotel is pretty good for the price. It's two blocks up from Morro Bay's waterfront. We had a pretty good view of Morro Rock, and if you go up to the third floor there's access to a patio for watching the sunsets. I'm pretty sure this is a no frills hotel, but they make up for it with their...

We stayed here for a night on our way south from Carmel. The hotel was great value. Helpful friendly reception staff. Adequate breakfast (my daughter loved the waffles). Rooms were large with microwave and fridge. Walking distance from restaurants on waterfront.

The sign out in front of the hotel advertises, "Tempur-pedic beds" and "waffles" on the other side. We enjoyed the waffles but, our bed was a Serta. The next morning I was told that we had a discount room for $99 and for $149 we could have had the Tempur-pedic bed and a pretty view. Everything was clean and I...

We stayed here 3 nights in late March with our and my wife's extended family. The first nice thing we noticed was that, even though an extra child came along with the extended family's group, there was no extra charge. We each got a room with 2 queen beds. They were not next to each other but were on the...

We got the executive suite, which was supposed to be 3x the size of an average room, but its maybe twice. Its very small for the price paid and would not fit more than my family (2 adults and an infant) comfortably. The view from our balcony is great, but its been raining and there's no drainage so our balcony...

We appreciate both good and bad reviews and take them quite seriously. While the front desk is closed at 10:00pm the lobby is always open and accessible with your room key. The elevator operates 24 hours a day. It seems that Mother Nature decided to grace us with some rain that weekend, hence your puddly balcony, we have notified our...
