We have stayed at El Morro Masterpiece several times over the past few years. What brings us back to this location is the Unique Style of building and Friendly Helpful Staff.
At the of the day we could always count on coming back to a meticulouslly cleaned room. Wouldn't think of staying any where else in Morro Bay, Great location, within walking distance to the ocean and about twelve miles from SanLuisObispo -AJB Kazoo

Room Tip: Higher floors are generally quieter in most motels.

We've stayed at this hotel a couple times and would stay there again. Three blocks from the ocean and convenient to the Embarcadero with all its restaurants and attractions. Breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoon. Also a very nice spa that we enjoyed. The workout room has some nice equipment and the hotel is very comfortable overall.

My husband and I were visiting a relative who lives in Morro Bay. Other family members have recommended the Masterpiece Motel and we were not disappointed. The front desk personnel were friendly and efficient; the place is clean and well-cared for; the decor is relatively plain (they could spruce up the eating area) and benefits from all the art reproductions (hence, the motel name). Our room was comfortable, clean, spacious, and quiet even though it faced towards the highway and we had the windows open at night. Also, the price was very reasonable and the location is only a few blocks from the marina.

Nice Motel. Great location. Everything about our 2-day stay here was just fine. The free Breakfast was a bit sparse on variety; but is probably adequate for most people's taste. The free evening wine-tasting with snacks in the lobby was pretty basic, but very pleasant, and we enjoyed it each evening. We liked staying at the Masterpiece, and think you would too. We'll be back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Room on the bay-side of the Motel, so you'll have a nice view.

The Masterpiece is a great place to stay. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a great location then the El Moro Masterpiece is the place to be. We celebrated in the Penthouse upstairs and talk about spacious and comfortable. It has spectacular views,a private outside deck, fireplace, jacuzzi tub and an ultra comfortable bed. The staff is great, serving wine and cheese in the evening and a great continental breakfast in the mornings. We loved it there and will be going back again and again for sure.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Masterpiece Motel recently. I would consider this to be the best value in Morro Bay. Though a bit outdated, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The parking lot is on the small side and might pose a problem if the motel was full, but we stayed mid-week so didn't have any issues. They have a wine and cheese reception in the evening...a very nice touch that we really enjoyed. They had wine for the adults, sparkling apple cider, various cheeses and crackers, and an assortment of cookies for the kids. We enjoyed the wine and cheese far more than the continental breakfast. The breakfast is very minimal; we snacked on a few things but then went out for a real breakfast. Still, for under a hundred dollars a night in a coastal town, it was well worth it and we'd stay here again with no hesitation.

Although we didn't have a chance to use them, the hotel has a spa and gym located downstairs. We're looking forward to staying here again in the future to use the spa.

I have stayed at the El Morro Masterpiece on multiple occasions, and plan to do so again soon. I go there to get away and write, and I have brought a team of 7 research assistants (college students) with me in December of 2011, and the hotel has been very gracious in meeting our needs in any way they can. I am planning to bring another team in the near future, and this is where we will be staying. Great value, clean rooms, excellent service, and friendly staff make it hard to beat in Morro Bay. This is the hotel I recommend to all my family and friends who visit the area.
