“Morro Bay..Materpiece Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We renyed a suite. Nice view of the Morro rock. Nice room only problem thee room remained HOT even with fan on high and balcony door open and even with the door open. Was located in the central part of Morrow Bay a big plus.
Embarcadero was only a few blocks away.

This place is a little different, with all the classic prints around, plus wine and cheese. Great breakfast, hotel is nice and quiet. If you're planning on driving highway 41, you need to know that it is a very winding road. Plan on going down to the beach and watching the surfers.

We spent our 32 anniversary at this motel it was the best! We plan on spending every other one there. The breakfast was great it was quiet, clean, close to everything. The staff is amazing! We have stayed in Morro Bay a hundred times but staying at the masterpiece was so nice. I only pray there will be a empty room every year

This is a quirky hotel based around the theme of masterpiece artists. All rooms & public areas have reproductions of famous paintings and they are catalogued room by room.

It's only small (26 bedrooms including a penthouse in the tower) but has a 'Roman' spa pool in the basement. In general the hotel is very odd but a welcome change to the standard motel/hotel chains and it indicates some imagination.

Rooms at the hotel are spacious with very good showers. There was no air con but a ceiling fan was provided and Wi-Fi was free but didn't reach our room so we had to go outside. There was an old CRT TV with a terrible picture and this was the only real disappointment.

It's within a fairly easy walk of the embarcadero (i.e. the working seafront) which offers a good choice of restaurants & shops for both tourists and locals. For visitors this is the centre of the town even though it is away from the Main Street. The town itself has some charm, and attracts a lot of surfers to thee area near Morro Rock, but it is unfortunately dominated by a power station on the front.

There's a great store just down the road from the hotel which offers a massive selection of both wines & beers.

Had the most romantic weekend...ever. This was our second trip. We just love Morro bay and the Masterpiece hotel. I have made a review in the past but I just had to recommend the Penthouse suite. Very comfy bed, fireplace, Jacuzzi. You will not be disappointed. Since we got engaged this weekend I have a feeling we will be getting this room regularly for years to come....My new fiance would also like to say that the do it yourself waffles are fantastic, and he doesn't even like waffles.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra and get the penthouse.

We were there in August. The weather was great. It isn't always great. We chose the hotel based on an advertised price and ratings. We did not get that price. Perhaps it was because it was an August weekend. We did some checking and other hotels rates were higher than advertised, so we stuck with this locale. In the end, given the options, it was a good choice. It is very near a couple funky restarants and a short walk down to the embarcadero, where the bay and all the tourist stuff is. We enjoyed the room sizes, flat screen TV, service, free breakfast, little gym and wine and cheese in the afternoon.

This was our third visit to the Masterpiece. If available we pay the extra for the top floor. That room has the entire 3rd story to yourself. There is a fireplace, a deck with a view of Morro Rock, an in room jacuzzi. The decor of this hotel is art, they give you a pamphlet where you can walk around the hotel and identify the art pieces. They put out wine and cheese every afternoon and breakfast. We love this place!!
