We decided to take a detour on the way back to SF via Morro Bay. We found this gem and luckily there was one room left. Great location!! Claudia is a wonderful hostess. This is a quaint B&B. It’s small and intimate. We stayed in the Rose Room. Very sweet and girly. The walk is 2 blocks to the Embarcadero where all the restaurants, shops and views of the Rock! In the morning Claudia prepared a wonderful homemade breakfast with juice, coffee, cake, French toast and fruit. Great price. I definitely recommend staying there instead of a pricey motel.
Normally when we come down to the Central Coast, we stay at San Luis Obispo and at times Pismo Beach. This time we decided to explore Morro Bay with a night at the Marina Street Inn and I didn't know what we have been missing. Owner Claudia welcomes you to her home at check in and you can tell the love that goes into her décor. With 4 individually decorated rooms to choose from (2 on each floor with either a shared small patio or balcony), you should be able to find one that will make you feel right at home. All rooms have their own bathrooms and bedrooms are large enough to have a small sitting area in addition to a comfortable queen sized bed. We chose the Garden Room which coincidentally Matt Damon had stayed in so if it is good enough for Matt Damon, it is good enough for us. The décor made you feel like you were outside sleeping in a cozy nest and were even able to see the sun set along the side of Morro Rock right from our balcony. Breakfast of coffee/tea and orange juice, slice of cake, fruit cup and hot item like French Toast and sausage is served each morning around her dining room table and wine with cheese and crackers which we did not get a chance to partake in is served around 5 or 5:30 in the living area. A few blocks away from the Embarcadero and on Saturdays, the afternoon Farmer's Market also only a couple blocks of away, it is a great location to explore the waterfront with its shops and restaurants without having to worry about looking for parking and if you are lucky, treated to the antics of the sea otters and their pups, all within walking distance. With only a 20 minute drive from SLO, you are still close enough to go into town anytime you want.…
Very friendly and welcoming owner. Very comfortable room and bed. Slept well. Good food recommendation for dinner by the owner. Easy walk to restaurants. Off road parking. Central location and view of the rock. Lovely breakfast.
The Marina Street Inn was a perfect place for my husband and me to share a long weekend with 2 other couples. Having our own rooms but the ability to gather for breakfast and late afternoon wine and cheese was exactly what we were looking for. Our host, Claudia was so accommodating. The Inn is quaint and comfortable.
Had a one night stay here. Ideal location for Morro Bay. A short downhill walk to the town. The room was clean and comfortable. The very chatty hostess joined us for breakfast the next morning. The garden is charmingly planted, very "English Garden". Breakfast was not expansive but we had eaten a lot the night before so were not particularly hungry. The room was large enough for us and the bathroom was very clean and well supplied.
