I stayed here as a stop over on my drive home from Northern California. The room was cute and very clean. The staff was super friendly. I will definitely stay here again.

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...

The good: clean rooms, friendly front desk, free wifi, soft towels, nice hallways, good beds. This was a very convenient location to visit the central coast. The bad: the loudest room I have ever stayed in. You can hear the floorboards creak from any movement in the room upstairs. I expect to hear toilets flush, but not also hearing the...

I recently spent 4 nights at La Serena Inn while attending a conference at Atascadero. I decided to stay in Morro Bay, a pretty oceanside town, as it was only 20 minutes from the conference and nicer than Atascadero (which is a nice place in it's own right.) The Inn offers sheltered parking, rare for small hotels. I had a...

We have used La Serena many times, but this time may have been the last one. We have no objections to warnings about "smoking" in the rooms and potential penalties. Posting this in a room is OK with us, but having to sign it at the desk we find uncivilized and objectionable. We will in all likely hood not stay...
