“Great Stay”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

My husband and I just got back home from our second trip to Morro Bay, and Estero Inn, this year. Over the summer, we stayed in the Bay View Suite. This room was amazing! Very clean and beautiful room. We absolutely loved the views from two sides of the suite. During our most recent trip, we stayed in the Bay suite. We thoroughly enjoyed this room as well. It was also beautiful and very clean. The view from this room was very nice as well. Just quite a bit smaller. We stayed in this room to save some money, as the Bay View Suite is a bit pricier. Both rooms were excellent and my husband and I both agree that we would like to keep staying here.

Excellent staff and accommodations. A perfect birthday weekend topped off by a christmas boat parade and barbeque hosted by the owner. You will not meet finer people than the good citizens of Morro Bay. We are planning to make this an annual birthday weekend.

Room Tip: The rooms on the water are delightful

Great little inn right on the water. My girlfriend (now wife!) and I stayed on the second floor in the Ocean View room. I let the staff know I was planning on proposing that weekend, and they really did a great job of making the room very special for us. Champagne on ice, roses, and chocolates - all waiting for us in the room when we checked in! I would definitely recommend the Estero Inn to anyone. I do recommend getting a second floor room on the West or Northwest side.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor, facing the rock!

A really friendly welcome at Reception. Our room was on the first floor, overlooking the rock - a nice big room, spotlessly clean, and a fantastically comfortable, large bed. Breakfast the next morning was a help-yourself affair downstairs, which suited us very well indeed - some fresh fruit salad and a couple of toasted bagels. Morro Bay wouldn't be my first choice to stay in again, there's not much to it beyond the power station and the big rock lump, and I'd probably go up or down the coast instead to somewhere more picturesque, but this is a good choice

We stayed one night in Morro Bay as part of a road trip. The room and view at the Estero were lovely, the only thing that could be improved on was the "welcome" at reception. Sadly it was if we were interrupting the guys day.
However, that aside we enjoyed our stay, the room and the hotel location were perfect. Morro Bay is small and quiet - we loved the peacefullness, and the fact that you can sit and watch the boats, seals and pelicans all going by.
Breakfast was continental, in a self serve room that had more than enough choice for us.
It's a lovely walk round to the rock and the beach, and there are several good fish restaurants to choose from - you definatley can tell that the fish is fresh!

Room Tip: All the rooms have balconies with stunning views!

This was our 2nd from last stop on our tour of California before heading back to Sydney! The service was friendly, the room and bathroom were emaculate (loved the towel elephant), good views of the Rock at sunset and the restaurant recommendation of 'The Gallery' along the high street was our best meal of the holiday! Just wish we could have stayed longer!

My husband proposed to me in Morro Bay on the balcony at Estero Inn overlooking the ocean. It was incredible. The owner is fantastic! Once he found out that my husband was going to propose, he went out of his way and filled the room with roses and champagne to make the day special for us. He was very knowledgable and accommodating throughout our stay. The Inn itself has beautiful views, the rooms are very tastefully decorated and bed are very comfortable. We come to Morro Bay often and will stay here every time we do. What a great experience!
