This place is a gem. As others have noted, it is very clean and the owner is very nice and helpful. A big plus is that I felt very safe, as I am an older female traveling alone. Additionally, this has the BEST AIR CONDITIONER!! So quiet and cooled the room down quickly. Kind of a 50's vibe to it,... More

Clean and remodeled without any old motel/inn smell or typical motel interiors look Powerful AC and Heater ( i did not tried heater though) units while most other inns do not have this Fridge and MW...

We were traveling between Los Angeles and San Francisco and found this place online. The rates were very reasonable for the middle of summer and it was convenient to town and the beach. This hotel is super clean and very homey. The rooms are a little small, but since we were only staying one night this was fine. Much better... More

We've been coming to Morro Bay for years and had never stayed here before. The rooms were cute and clean. It was really really quiet and close enough to the bay to both hear the seals and walk to the water. The proprietors were delightful. The best part was the Sundown was $100 less per night that where we had... More

I almost hesitate to write a review because I like to keep this place to myself. This year featured some improvements in the form of electronic door locks, and what i think must be the worlds most quiet air conditioners. Same great service and prices, we usually try to stay during the weekdays to avoid higher weekend prices. Within walking... More

Very good bargain for the price. It's just 2 blocks from the bay and the main part of town. Rooms are nothing fancy, but nice and clean, and the service is good. Would definitely stay here again. My kids enjoyed the "magic fingers" feature on the bed!

I decided to take a drive south on Highway 1 and stopped at Morro Bay for the first night. My first visit to Morro Bay and since it would be a one night stay, I went for the Sundowner. It is well located on Main Street. A small, one story classic motel with the parking located right in front of... More

Nice change from corporate hotels. The current couple has owned it for about 25 years. They are very helpful. The room had a queen and a single,which was unusual but perfect for us. It was very clean, and had nice pots of flowers all around.

The Sundown Motel was a nice find in Morro Bay. It is a small one story motel of about 20 units. It was very clean and the rooms were nicely decorated. The bed was so comfortable. There is a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in each room. The motel is family owned and the hosts were friendly and helpful. It... More

We booked this hotel for one night based on TA reviews and we were not disappointed. I wish we could have stayed another night as the town of Morro Bay was very nice. After driving 6 hours it was really nice to have a clean comfortable room to relax in. There are only about 8 rooms at this hotel so... More
