We were looking for something on the water. There are many choices a few blocks up but we really wanted to be right on the bay. It was wonderful. We walked everywhere,even though we were offered free trolley rides ! The staff was fun,friendly,and informative. It felt more like a family Inn and a nice change from the hotel chains...

Thank you for your review. This is a family owned and run Inn. We work the front desk and are simply part of the team. We feel it makes a difference. Glad you liked the location, and the other perks besides the free trolley rides. Come again.

My husband and I go to Morro Bay frequently but this was the first time staying here. The staff is warm and friendly and very helpful. Yes, the rooms are small but super clean. They shampoo the carpets after every guest! We were given coupons for free things in town (wine tasting, fish & chips, and free cinnamon buns from...

This was by far the best hotel we've stayed in over the past 10 years. The room is small but we don't hang out in our room so that didn't matter. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The two office women are very friendly and happy and the property has the same happy colorful decor. Plenty...

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights, July 17-20 and enjoyed every minute. Jayne & Leigh were excellent hosts! Our room (#12) was clean and comfortable. It was small but plenty big for our needs. The bed was VERY comfortable and we slept well listening to the Sea Lions in the distance. The location is fabulous. You can...

We stayed here for 6 nights on our anniversary vacation. It is a wonderful home base for the Central Coast, as you can easily drive to places like San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Hearst Castle, etc. While our room did not have a view of the rock or harbor, the inn is located right across the street from the waterfront....

Room was very clean, although small. The queen size bed and bathroom were just what we were looking for. Beautiful view of the rock. The owner was very nice and gave us a few freebie coupons for the area. Free wine tasting, free fish and chips, and free cinnamon rolls at the cafe next door which is great for breakfast....

Friendly staff, very clean room, no bad odors. They have nice continental breakfast. Great location. Small room trundle bed. Room decor doesn't really matter but instead of "European" style its more like a teenagers room. Overall good stay.

A small motel with basic facilities in a small room but very good value for an overnight stop on Highway 1. Small bathroom area but this does have everything you need; carparking outside, wifi, TV. Rather fun with included stand-up self serve breakfast in a tinyl room. Very sociable! Suitable for children with toys scattered around. Friendly reception recommended local...

So if you're looking for a modern type hotel/motel with fancy decor and furnishings, granite counters and sinks, marble tiled bath and floors, recessed lighting fixtures, etc.....this is not the place. This place is really old...like built in the 1940s....no pool....no fitness center.....no business center. The walls are thin (you can hear your neighbors' voices and tv). But it has...
