My son surprised my husband and I by booking us the Penthouse Suite 300 for our 25 year anniversary. Our stay was wonderful, upon our arrival there was a card waiting in our room wishing us a Happy Anniversary along with a chilled bottle of apple cider (so sweet) from the staff. The room even had a book log signed... More

Good location,big rooms, friendly staff At 5pm has been served complimentary vine and cheese tasting Everyone enjoyed the simple but good breakfast, especially the waffle iron for making fresh Belgian waffles. Overall a good place to stay to see Morro Bay, which is a very cute town.

Good location - it was a 5-minute walk to the Embarcadero. Room had a great view of Morro Rock. Staff was very pleasant when making the reservation, and set everything up. We're a family of 5 and so needed a roll-away bed in the room - it was already waiting for us in the room when we checked in. And... More

We picked this hotel from Hotel Tonite. It is old but very clean. Room was big and bathroom small but sufficient. Kai at the front desk was terrific! One of the best desk clerks in my experience. Bathroom light was on a 15 minute timer so you had to hurry. For some reason the other lights were not working. Water... More

Masterpiece Hotel is centrally located in Morro Bay. Our room was clean and comfortable with a nice view of Morro Rock and a cozy fireplace. The hotel could use some updating in decor and the carpet was frayed. The breakfast included in the price was lacking - pastries were not fresh and the hard boiled eggs were missing. We had... More

Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our apologies concerning breakfast, we receive our pastries daily so to hear that they were not fresh is disappointing to us as well. We do offer three different cereals along with oatmeal and hot waffles. Nevertheless we wish you happy future journeys and hope you will consider us again the next time you... More

I booked on line (as most people do). I was drawn to the pictures and location. On one site, it states it's a Motel. On another, it said Hotel. Either or, this place is quaint, personable, and quiet. Please note: NO ELEVATOR. The rooms say each are decorated differently. Ours was very blah. But I can only rate the room... More
