“WOW! What a transformation!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Had stayed here before the remodeling and it was great then. But now, with all new floors, furniture, paint, outside decorations, quite rooms, new lcd tv's, totally redone bathrooms, this place is a gold mine. Still the great location, very close to the rock, shore shopping, and downtown. Great value for the money. I highly recommend this motel.

Thank you so very much for your FANTASTIC comments regarding the Pleasant Inn Motel! We truly appreciate you taking the time to pass on your thoughts about the renovation that took place at our family inn this past month.

One of our goals was to continue to maintain the charm and personal service that you have come to expect but add a few new touches that travelers expect today. Improving the comfort, soundproofing of rooms and room furnishings was one of our top priorities so we are so happy you loved the changes.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and your Holidays and we hope to see you again soon.

John, Joan, Jim, Sandy and the rest of the staff from the Pleasant Inn Motel

We stayed only one night, although we would've loved to stay longer. We stayed in Room 1, which offers a HUGE king bed and a lovely little "vintage" kitchenette, which we didn't have time to put to good use. The room was perfectly comfortable and warm, and the bathroom--although not terribly large--was clean and in good working condition. The property is well kept and beautifully landscaped, with flowers in bloom throughout.

We were able to park directly behind the room and enter through the kitchen door, which was extremely convenient. Another door led from the bedroom to the main parking lot and down the street no more than two blocks to the embarcadero and the water, where you have the greatest view of Morro Rock. The inn is a charming spot in a charming little town, accessible to restaurants (we highly recommend Fish Bonez), cafes and shops. You can actually hear the sea lions from the little harbor all the way up to the inn (we didn't find this unpleasant). We just wish we could've stayed longer!

Room Tip: I believe Room 1 is the largest, and it has a window that faces the embarcadero and Morro Rock, alth...

Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to send us a review regarding your visit to the Pleasant Inn Motel. We are very happy you loved our inn and Morro Bay. Wait until you come back, we just newly remodeled the Inn this past week and now just opened on November 8th and its even more beautiful. We wanted to still keep the vintage feel but add some contemporary furnishings and amenities that travelers expect today.

We hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family!

Warm regards,

Jim

This was recommended to me by friends. We stayed here in August and it was really great. Comfy, homey and so conveniently close to the shopping and beach areas. We stayed for a few nights and then continued on our way. Later in the day after we left, we realized that we had forgotten our backpack in the closet of our room . I called and they had already set it aside and tried to get a hold of us. After much running around and phone calls to coordinate the shipping, they shipped it out to our next hotel. They were so helpful! They actually care. And we were so grateful. We will definitely stay here next time.

This was our 1st stay here and it was very nice and comfy. We booked the room online and it turns out we had the "Cozy Room". It is a very small room, but so cozy, clean and comfy. We had the windows open and there were flowers and plants to look at along the fence. I thought that was nice. It was like a family place, very welcoming. The location is perfect for us. It is very close to the main strip and very close to restaurant's and bars that we like to go to. The Manager, Sandy was nice, and made us feel happy to be there. We will stay there again for sure. We will try one of the larger rooms next time :)

Pleasant Inn is a very reasonably priced motel very close to the Embarcadero. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a log. Wide choice of channels on the TV. Thoroughly recommended if you're visiting Morro Bay.

As the name suggests this place is very pleasant. The rooms are a good size with fridge and microwave included. The whole place feels homey and the check in was friendly. The location is great as it is close to the ocean and the restaurants which are just around the corner. Would definitely recommend it.

At $100 a night, we didn't have high expectations from this place. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished (if a little dated); the bathroom and kitchen are adequate; it has a decent TV and an amazingly comfortable king size bed that seems out of place in a budget motel (room 4). The location is also excellent as it's about 3 minutes walk to the shops and restaurants at the waterfront where we got some great sea lion photos in the evening when they came to play around the little marina. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
