“A great place to stay in Morro Bay”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We booked this hotel on the strength of previous Trip Advisor reviews, and we're very glad we did. The hotel's location right on the waterfront (the parking platform is literally over the water) is hard to beat. We arrived in the rain and the switch-on log-effect gas fire suffused the room with a warm glow almost instantly. A very cosy room with probably the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on. We braved the rain to walk along to the restaurants and bars a short distance away on Embarcadero. In the morning the sun shone on the water and the Morro Rock lit up in the suns rays- absolutely stunning location. Breakfast is a do it yourself affair- ok unless you want the full works. All in all a great place to stay.

We recently stayed 1 nights at the Estero Inn and found it to one of the best experiences we've had in a long time. We had the Ocean View suite, which had an awesome view of Morro Rock and the bay. The fireplace was a nice touch and very cozy. We found the room to be outstanding in every way. The desk clerk suggested and booked dinner reservations for us at the Galley Restaurant and the meal was super. The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast at The Coffee Pot restaurant. We will definitely return here on our next road trip up Highway One.

What a treasure! The room was perfectly appointed from the fireplace, to the great wet bar (all rooms should have this), to our awesome view from the Bay View Suite! Morro Bay has always been one of our favorite spots while we lived in CA & since we now live in Florida & were visiting family .. we were so pleased to find such a wonderful Inn as we traveled north! The staff were helpful, professional and made our stay "special." We stayed at another Inn in Pacific Grove while traveling north & mentioned this "treasure" to other folks we met there. Hope they get to visit the Estero Inn & enjoy it as much as we did!

Room Tip: Corner suites are directly on the Bay!

We recently stayed 2 nights at this inn. We had the sunset room, which is at the back and looks out directly on the water. The gas fireplace was quite nice, and warmed up the room. I was pleased with how fresh and clean the furnishings were, and the sheets were very soft.

Other reviewers have commented on the thin walls, and we did hear the TV next door one morning. The breakfast was nothing special, and the 2nd morning we went to Sun N Buns Bakery & Espresso Bar and had awesome pastries and a breakfast wrap.

You can walk to all the restaurants, and they have parking off the street.

Room Tip: We were in the Sunset room. People who really need it dark to sleep may want to ask for a different...

This place was great. We will be back for sure. We stayed in the Bay View Suite, it had a great view and a wrap around balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for room tours so you can find the best one for you, all the rooms seem great.

Fantastic room! It was so clean that it was like nobody had ever stayed there before. The room decor was tasteful and warm and the view was just amazing. Talk about sunsets!!! The Sunset Room was a perfect name for it. The breakfast was nice and service was great too. I can't wait to go back some day.

Room Tip: Top level rooms have fantastic views!
