“Pacific Coast Highway sanctuary:)”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

My wife and I had a fantastic 1 night stay here during our road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. The rooms were clean and spacious and the harbour view was alluring. Served by friendly and knowledgable staff the hotel is ideally located a short walk from the delights of Morro Bay. This hotel is a must for anyone travelling the PCH.

Room Tip: Request a harbour view from the third floor for the best views.

We travelled with another couple and booked 2 rooms for 2 nights. We were happy with the location, across the street from the harbor, and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The staff was efficient, the rooms clean and well furnished, the bed was comfortable, with lots of pillows. We enjoyed having a DVD player and borrowed a few movies from the hotel's library. While we didn't make use of the fireplace it was nice to have and the balcony gave us a great view of the Rock. The continental breakfast was fine and the room had a small refrigerator and microwave. All told, we had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: All rooms face the water, the third (top) floor offered a slightly better view

My husband and I had to find a room while traveling through Morro Bay we were late arrivals and the hotel was very accommodating, The bed was so comfortable and inviting. The room has a nice view with a balcony and a fireplace was so romantic. If we had gotten there earlier I would have enjoyed sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean and the shoppers below. Very quiet at night, its as if the streets roll up. The room was very spacious and I would make a return to this hotel in the future. This hotel is great for walking to the gift stores or restaurants. Dorn's Café a must for any traveler for breakfast. they had a nice continental breakfast set up but we preferred to have a full breakfast at Dorn's Café I really appreciate having glass coffee mugs in the room instead of Styrofoam.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor, but if you need a better view of the ocean ask for a 3rd floor room. th...

Upon arrival you are warmly greeted and handed this strange metal object. You gaze at it in wonder, conscious of the fact that you've seen one before. It's... it's... keys! They actually use real keys here and not those cards we're all so used to. How quaint.

So every room has a water view, though the upper floor has the best. The staff is super nice and helpful and FAST. I swear they brought my requested plates and utensils to the room in under 2 minutes.

Likes =
1.Location. Less than a block from all the shops and restaurants.
2.Parking. It's covered and felt secure. They provide squeegees to remove the millions of suicidal bugs from your long drive.
3.Rooms are spacious and clean and have some nice, although not top of the line, amenities.

Dislikes =
1. Thin walls. I know. It's a motel. But if it's trash day, you'll know. And when the children of idiot parents decide to run up and down the halls squealing "AAAARRRRGGGCCKKYYYRRRRR"... you'll know.
2. Coffee mugs. They look like the cute glasses you get specialty coffee drinks in. They're not big enough or sturdy enough. Some may not care. Some of us are serious about coffee.
3. Showers. And it wasn't just me. My very masculine MMA training husband thought the shower was terrifying. A painful stream of jumbo jet propulsions shot from that teeny nozzle. The temperature was erratic, and the flow was painful. The force of the water mixed with the flow of the ceiling fan created a sort of wind tunnel suction that stuck the creepy filmy shower curtain to your body. I'm not exaggerating. It was scary. Neither of us stayed in there very long.
Also, the auto dispensers of shampoo and such is a nice eco-conscious idea, but I still don't know what they had in the body wash section. It didn't lather and it smelled like hospital disinfectant.

I would stay here again, it's a nice hotel with a decent price for the area. But I won't be showering here if I can help it.

Room Tip: Get top floor for best views

We stayed here for a birthday weekend extravaganza and had a lot of fun in Morro Bay and the Cayucos a nearby town, (stay there instead of Morro Bay.) The rooms are nice but you can hear others through the walls, its a little pricey for the area, and the breakfast was not that great, so no savings there. We noticed many of the rooms were overcrowded with multiple children, the room next to us had five people. The spa was kind of a joke and just remember this is a fully enforced NO-SMOKING property, and be prepared to spend $500 USD if caught. It think this is really stupid considering many of the rooms have balconies. It is noisy even early in the morning we had cars starting at 4:30 am and on going to the loading ramp. Net/Net: this place isn't worth $200 a night.

Room Tip: Go to Off the Hook for lunch and dinner and the Otter Rock Cafe for music at night.

We stayed there in May of 2012 to see the car show, and eat at Shawn's on Main (our favorite restaurant in the central coast). This was our first stay, as we usually stay in Baywood Inn in Los Osos. But the drive back to that place can be a bit dark at night. Embarcadero was a perfect stroll to where all of the action was in downtown Morro Bay, right across the street from the water. We stayed in a King Full view w/ Fireplace, and couldn't have been happier with the room. Breakfast was continental style, and make your own waffles. Fine for a single morning, but on our departure we made sure to stop at The Sculpture Egg for a real breakfast. We'll stay here again.

The rooms are nice and large. The beds are comfortable and we had a beautiful view. It's very quiet. Rooms come equipped with microwave and small refrigerator. They also have a fan in every room which I appreciate. There is a hot tub which we didn't use but will in the future. The hotel is close to all of downtown Morro Bay. We just walked in on a Wednesday and were given a beautiful room and a super discounted price. Well below the posted rates. I would stay here again and again.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor in the middle of the hotel and it was very quiet.
