Just finished my third stay at La Serena and, as I have the past two visits, enjoyed my stay immensely. My king room was clean, quiet and well-appointed. The bed was comfortable. The only change from last year was the installation of soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the shower. Very handy. The staff was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the breakfast this morning.

If I ever come back to Morro Bay, and I certainly hope to, I'll book La Serena for visit #4. It is consistently comfortable and welcoming.

Found this beautiful hotel through an exhausting last minute tripadvisor search. So glad I chose to stay here with my family & that they had availability. Cant miss deal.The hotel was very nice, clean and free wifi! Covered parking, also free. Room was a good size. Beds were comfy & TV with dish network. Oh and did i mention yummy breakfast, FREE! My sister had waffle withdrawls when we got home on Monday. Next time i definitely will inquire about the use of the pool and workout room at their sister hotel. Location couldnt be beat. 2 blocks from the bay, embarcadero st. (shopping and dining) and like a 1 mile walk to Morro rock & the ocean side. Believe me its a gorgeous walk to do first thing in the morning (i did it at 6am). I felt totally safe walking alone early morning and in the evening.

we just went back to La Serena for a second time, and again we were very happily greeted by the ladies at the front desk, the lobby is clean and cheerful, there always seems to be snacks being offered at the table there. In the elevator one of the staff had put a sign up wishing my husband and I a happy anniversary which was just a really nice and thoughtful gesture :-)
the bed is soft and inviting, the waffles are great, we will return again!

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor is best

The layout of this hotel worked well for our family. We were on the second floor in a corner room and the parking garage is underneath. So, we had less worries about the kids making noise on the floor than most other hotels we've stayed in. Hotel is only two small blocks from the Bay. We even walked to Morro Rock from our room. Were only planning to stay two nights, but we had such a great time in the area and our stay was so comfortable, the family voted to add a night.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger.

This was a great location to stay at. No view of the beach or boardwalk area, but it was less than a 5/15 minute easy walk to the pier area. You could eat your continental breakfast in a comfortable room or out on the glassed in patio at this inn. This was a fun location to stay at. Lots of food establisments within the 5/15 minute walk and really great tasting fresh seafood.

Room Tip: There might be a ocean view from the 3rd floor, but we stayed in 2 different rooms within 4 days and found both rooms to be clean and comfortable.
