Very, very clean accommodations in a nice, quiet area. Our dog, Emma, loves to stay here and loves the king-size bed especially. Easy walk to downtown and the Embarcadero and many restaurants & coffee shops. We enjoy having our coffee, orange juice and danish in the mornings as well. Already looking forward to our next visit here in December!

We stayed here for a quick overnight trip,and were so pleasantly surprised. Thought it would be a basic motel, but it far exceeded our expectations. The owner/manager was so kind and welcoming--great hospitality. The room was very, very clean and fresh. Cute beach themed artwork, curtains and matching bedspread, etc. The heater worked very well, had no old smell to it and warmed the room up really well on a chilly evening. Nice fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. The tub shower was really clean, no creepy corners, and the shower head and water pressure were great! Would definitely stay there again, and refer our friends. Conveniently located on the Embarcadero. The manager recommended several places to eat, and gave us discount coupons. All this at a price comparable to a basic (sometimes creepy) Motel 6. Give it a try.

Very clean room with comfortable beds. Towels and amenities were good. Lobby is too small
to offer much but the personnel were very accommodating and friendly. Great location, I walked
to the Embarcadero and it is right at the entrance to the state park. 1.5 miles to rock and beach.
This was a Saturday night so the rate was up but it was much more reasonable than any other
motel I priced. Received coupons for discounts at attractions and restaurants. This is a keeper.

What a wonderful place to relax! We had such a enjoyable stay at the sandpiper! Strategically located. Walking distance to the Morro, restaurants and the beach. Even though we stayed one night only (we were coming south from Big Sur) we had a good time. Our room was very clean and private. Front desk lady -Priscilla- is very helpful and generous. She shared coupons for restaurants and tickets to the aquarium as well with us. Scones for breakfast are delicious. We recommend it. We will come again!

Lo recomendamos. Es de lo mejorcito que hay en Morro Bay. De hecho caere por ahi la sgte. vez que este por el area....ah, los Scones!...buenazos!!!

Stayed overnight en route to San Francisco. Room was delightful! Clean and bright, spacious and comfortable. Had it's own refrigerator and microwave, plus coffee-making facilities. Bed was extremely comfortable. Only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants on the waterfront.
We only stayed one night, but would come again, and can thoroughly recommend The Galley Restaurant. For a Motel, The Sandpiper is above average, with a lot of charming extra touches, and the rate was very reasonable indeed. We recommend it highly.

Room Tip: We presented our AAA card to obtain a discount, but was offered a "view room" upstairs, wh...

So sorry , it took me awhile to respond. Just so many things going on. One minor thing is we replaced the remote in your room. Too bad it wasn't sooner.

My boyfriend and I decided on very short notice to go to the coast before I had to return to school. I searched hotels thru kayak and didn't really like the reviews in the price range I had in mind. So I googled hotels in Morro Bay. I saw the sandpiper and liked the pics and decided to take a chance. What a great place. It is at the south end of main so it's quiet, had a beautiful view from upstairs room with a nice very comfy king size bed. The staff is exceptional, friendly, helpful in every way. I will be going back in a month and won't stay anywhere else. Owner gave us coupons for dining, the place was extremely clean and warm and welcoming. They are also pet friendly. The room was very cute and well decorated, the grounds have beautiful plants. Well worth the reasonable price.

Room Tip: upstairs on north end...great view of the rock and bay!
