Took a short family trip up the coast to see the Elephant Seals and Hearst Castle in the middle of the week. Hotel staff were friendly on check-in, though we were charged an additional fee for an upgrade to a room with a fireplace (hotel was nearly empty, middle of the week). Room was clean and well kept up, if a little on the dated side. Nice view of the ocean from our room. I liked that the windows opened and we were able to let the sound of the ocean lull us to sleep. Beds were comfortable with soft linens.
Breakfast in the morning was pretty basic, but ok. The coffee and tea station was a little disappointing, as the water to make tea and the coffee itself were both cold by the evening hours -- if you boast this as an amenity, it should be replenished throughout the day.
The pool area looked very welcoming and like it was well maintained, as did the rest of the hotel. The location is great. I have stayed at other properties in this area, and I would say that The Morgan is definitely above average for what you can expect to find on this stretch of coast!
