We were quite satisfied with our stay at this little hotel. The location is very accessible - just a couple of blocks away from the stores and places to eat. The interior could use a little updating but who needs to stay indoors if you have the a scenery to enjoy. Morro Bay is a very nice place to get...

We were driving from LA to SF and thought to stop by The Rock. I called the place en route and was told that a two bed suite with a sofa is available. I was quoted a standard room price and a suite price. I reserved and arrived shortly after. Got my paperwork done and on my way up to...

The La Serena Inn would like to apologize for the mix-up with the reservation. The front desk agent was a new employee and did admit to making a mistake with the description of the room to the guest. However we are confused that it was stated that the agent said she was "trained" to call such rooms suites, as that...

If you live in the central valley you visit Morro Bay in the summer and also know that there hasn't been any new Hotel construction in a long time in this small coastal town. Many of the properties that I remember as a kid in the 70's are still there and have undergone various ownership changes and various remodels. La...

A large, clean and comfortable room. There was a nice sun lounge area adjacent to the breakfast room, which meant we could take breakfast outside. Our room had a balcony, with sea view (albeit a side view). Very helpful staff.

At $87/night good value for money. Quiet, walking distance to the harbor for dining and shopping, and plenty of parking.

Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to the harbour, shops and restaurants. The breakfast was fun too, we really liked making our waffles. The staff were helpful, and all at a good price too. We would gladly stay here again if in the locale.

This mid-size motel is located about two blocks from all of the action in Morro Bay. The rates are great - king size bay view room for $104 a night (with a $15 off per night TripAdvisor coupon). My traveling companions had a double queen bed room for only $74. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a microwave...

I've stayed at this hotel once a month for 3 years and was always given a great deal. But yesterday I had to cancel my stay due to a change of plans. I was told the hotel was at 72% occupancy and so I would be charged for the room. When I called this morning I was told that the...

I selected La Serena for a 2 night stay based on Trip Advisor reviews. My husband and I were not disappointed. Comfortable, clean and convenient location. We have been to Morro Bay before, so did not need a view of "The Rock". Our room was on the second floor and had a small balcony--great for having a glass of wine...
