Always a pleasure to stay at this quaint hotel. Staff is always friendly and helpful, rooms are always neat and clean. Never want to take a chance on another area hotel when I am always pleased with an old favorite.

This hotel was the perfect spot for a long weekend getaway! The hotel has a lot of charm, from the staircase in the lobby to the unique pieces of art in each room and hallway. The staff was extremely welcoming and the wine and cheese in the afternoons was a very nice touch. The size of the bed was wonderful!... More

My 2nd stay at this hotel only three blocks from beach. This unique hotel have all rooms inside and most have a balcony. You can look out and no one is going to be walking in front of your room. This hotel serves wine and cheese in the late afternoon which is nice before going out to dinner. Breakfast is... More

This was a nice hotel at a great price. The staff is friendly, rooms are clean and the wine/cheese time in the afternoon was a big hit for all of us. We took the opportunity to relax a little and plan for the evening and the next day. Easy walking distance to the water and boardwalk. Would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is clean and comfortable, very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfasts are very good, with excellent waffles. The wine and cheese served in the evening is a wonderful added touch. The new Tempur-Pedic mattresses made for a very comfortable night's sleep. We'll be back here for sure.

Our first time in Morro Bay. The hotel is on a busy street but within a ten minute walk to the waterfront. It is a Very old hotel in desperate need of upgrades. We enjoyed the free Wi-Fi, but since we paid >$300 per night I expected a lot more than just the basics. Recommend it for a trip down... More

I stayed at the Masterpiece again this May with a group of my students while doing some research on the Central Coast. As always, the rooms were clean and the service was fantastic! The staff were all friendly and helpful. They always make me look forward to coming back!

A quaint, simple and modestly pretty hotel. The location is situated close enough to "downtown" and the harbor to walk to. Our room included a gas fireplace, a king size bed with fluffy pillows, a loveseat, and desk. There was a small patio with a view of Morro Rock. Overall the hotel was quiet and clean. We will definitely return.
