Just returned from trip up the coast and stayed at the El Morro for two nights. We stayed in Room 103 which is worth asking for. In addition to all the amenities you could need, there was a nice sitting area with a small sofa, chair & coffee table. It's nice to have the extra room to relax after a day siteseeing. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable which is why I booked at the El Morro after reading their advertisement. The location is central to where we wanted to go (Piso Beach, Cambria, etc.) We were a short walk to the waterfront/Embarcadero in Morro Bay. The walk was especially nice in the morning after breakfast. We had a very special dinner at Hoppe's in Cayucus. I had read that they serve local Abalone and I must say it is very pricey but well worth it for a special occasion. It was just fabulous, as anything is on their great menu. Make reservations though. We also had dinner one night at The Hamlet at Moonstone Gardens. The food was just OK, but we did enjoy a beautiful sunset.
I would stay again at El Morro.

We arrived on March 20th for two nights. The room was clean, and the bed really was as comfortable as advertised. The wine and cheese was ok if you like white zin and bland cheddar, and the breakfast was nothing special. The gym is small, but the spa is quite nice. Everything was fine except for the fact that everytime anyone in the motel flushes a toilet or turns on a shower, the pipes start squeeling with a high pitch scream. Oh, and when they say a partial harbor view, the key word is "Partial"!! We could see the rock, and a little water, right between the two buildings across the street.

My wife and I were very pleased with our first encounter with the El Morro. Reservations were correct on arrival, staff was friendly and accommodating and the decor was as advertised. And our room was spotless. We were impressed with the quietness of the property. Even though located on a busy street, the street noise was not evident. Of course the bed was wonderful, and pillows your head actually sank into.
The morning continental breakfast and afternoon wine/cheese sampling were much appreciated. The location is very convenient for regional day trips to Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo and Pismo. Of course Morro Bay is a wonderful community to just leisurely stroll around. The guide to local attractions that was provided in the room was simple, yet one of the most informative we've seen. Overall...a very relaxing stay. We'll be back!

Last year we stumbled unto this little motel for an overnight stay while visiting Hearst Castle. This year we returned and spent a week. The beds here are wonderful! And the basement level indoor spa is fabulous! There is a basic breakfast that we did not partake in because it was not at all Atkins-friendly, but there is a nightly wine, cider, and cheese buffet that features local wines. The bathrooms here are tiny but the rooms are fairly large with king-size beds and a sofa.
