My husband and I ended up at the Sandpiper (formally the Rodeway) after walking out of a different motel north of town (dirty room, inconvenient location, incredibly loud). The woman at the Sandpiper (I think other reviewers have said her name is Priscilla) was wonderful, and I really regret not doing more research before we arrive in Morro Bay. When we told Priscilla what happened and why we needed a room, she gave us both a discount and an upgraded room. She also gave us discounts for local restaurants and lots of advice for what to see in the area as well as on the rest of our trip up the coast. Her friendly, courteous attitude was wonderful after our experience at the other motel. The motel itself is older, but clean and charming. It reminded me of a classic seaside motel. The outside is clean and well kept - you can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the building. The room was very clean and decorated in bright, beachy colors. There were plenty of nice, thick towels. All was quiet at night, and we slept very well. The location was great too as all of the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Great view of the rock too. All in all, a very pleasant stay!
