“great experience at this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

My parents live in Morro Bay so when i come to visit them it's always a challenge to find a hotel thats affordable and close and also available. I found Pacific Shores Inn on hotels.com (i travel a lot for work so i use this app frequently) and what a pleasant surprise! We were helped all weekend by a great guy named Keith and our room had a fireplace! Keith even sold us duraflame logs at the check in counter and gave us three extra pillows. Room was super clean and we are returning for Thanksgiving to the same spot. This place will be my hotel every time i visit my parents now.

Stopped here as driving thru Morro Bay and got last available room. Keith at the front desk was very pleasant and gave us a good deal for the room. We had room 15 which is a two bedroom one bath cottage type room with a full kitchen and living room. The room was an older one, but the bed was comfortable and we were only staying for the night. There is also a very large hot pool that is enclosed. Keith was also very pleasant even when we had to wake him to let us back in our room after 1:00 because we had snuck out the back door of the room to hit the bar across the street and messed up our room key. I would stay here the next time we go thru Morro Bay.

This hotel was fine for a night. Nothing fancy. Old, no alarm clocks, plugs don't work we'll, but the bed was comfortable and the location was convenient. However, the room smelled musty and reeked of old cigarettes. By the time morning came, I couldn't check out fast enough. The smelled killed the whole experience.

Stayed here overnight when visiting Morro Bay. The price was right, the room clean and the service friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't much to write home about and the room furnishings were spartan but all in all I think it was a great deal.

There's a junkyard by the stairs to go to my room. Size of room was adequate, but Dust on heater vents, window sill and mirror cabinet. Shower tub was dubious and I didn't dare step in. Dark, heavily patterned carpet masked stains. No pillow on mattress, as described and mattress was cheap. CHEAP CHEAP is the word that best describes everything about this place, including cleanliness and amenities. Forget breakfast, lousy muffins and lousier juice and no place to sit. There are numerous better and less expensive places around there. At $150 a night, I've been had. A first class hotel by the water, charged the same.

Room Tip: I adise everyone to read all of the guests reviews. I read only what was highlighted. Only the owner...

Good place to stay if you want a clean room to stay with no other amenities like a pool or good breakfast. Very close to the water front shops and resturants. My room had great view of Morro Bay rock. Free wifi. I Walked to the coffee shop every morning. Overall, this place was worth it for the price.

We were driving up the coast of California and didn't really have a place to stay, so it was getting a liitle late and we decided to spend the night in Morro Bay. This hotel looked pretty good, fairly priced, nothing fancy but clean and honest. The front desk agent Ann Marie was incredibly helpful and nice. The only thing that really bothered me was the coffee and the orange juice. I am not a coffee or OJ snob but really, it's better to serve nothing than to serve that! The OJ wasn't fresh or from concentrate - it was Tang or something like that. Other than that, the rooms were really clean, new flat-screen TV with a bunch of cool channels, somewhat comfortable bed, new sheets. Good for the price! Stay there and ask for Ann Marie, she's cool! :)
