This was a return this to this hotel as we had enjoyed it first time round. We were not disappointed. The second floor room had a great view of the rock and the room was clean and gave us all we needed. Breakfast was very basic. The manager was very friendly and helpful.

This motel was lovely. The room was large and clean a little dark but bed comfortable. WiFi was free Parking was free. Breakfast was not much to rave about, however you had to take it back to your bedroom as there was no room available in the breakfast area. We sat out side and enjoyed the morning view. We would...

Room was simple and clean with a view from our balcony of Morro Rock. The location was perfect for us as it was close to the Embarcadaro, downtown, and the birding spots we had... More

The management was amazing and very accomadating. The building is in good repair. The rooms were clean and the grounds are very well kept up. The bed was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on. The room made noise buzzing light, noisy fridge. The walls are thin and we had to complain about noise from some rowdy neighbors....

If you are driving southward on PCH, this is an excellent motel stop choice! Despite being the cheapest motel during my whole trip, Morro Bay Sandpiper Inn came as a surprise to me because the room was spacious and clean! With a lot of free amenities, this motel is great at least an one-night stay. My first impression of motel... More

Stayed for one night at the Sandpiper inn. Rooms are clean and tidy, and the inn is at a good location, close to the Morro Bay Embarcadero. Friendly staff. Decoration of the rooms is perhaps dated, but for this price you really can't go wrong.
