Stayed here for couple nights. Very clean rooms and with friendly, helpful staff. The location is not ideal, but very close to the waterfront and the ocean. Very good value for your money. I would recommend it to travelers.

While driving up the coastal highway I stopped by in Morro Bay and decided to stay overnight as it was getting dark and unsafe to drive with all that rain that's been coming down for the past two days. Had some grilled tilapia tacos at Giovanni's place by the docks, then I drove around a few blocks when stumbled upon...

Sundown Inn is an older property that has been remodeled and kept up! Located about 2 blocks from the Waterfront with its Morro Rock views, restaurants and a few galleries and shops. The Inn contacted me by phone and email to clarify my reservation which was very thoughtful! Also on Checkout day we were allowed to leave our car a...

We to Morro Bay off season thinking it would be no problem to find a room. How wrong we were! We lucked out finding a room here. We will never stay anywhere else in Morro Bay. Owners are very accommodating and we have never stayed in a cleaner room! Can't wait for our next visit!

The office staff were very pleasant and friendly. This is an older hotel but the rooms were very clean, well cared for and recently remodeled. Comfortable beds! Appreciated the double bed plus twin bed option for family of three. Walkable area that seemed safe and friendly.

Didn't book just turned up, the owner was lovely and gave us a good price and great room. This isn't a posh hotel but is very clean and tidy. The owner takes you to the room and shows you how it all works. The hotel was quiet and is everything you need for a quick over nights accommodation whilst doing...

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times in the last few months. I'm recently retired and live in the Bay Area. I like coming down to morro bay for a quick overnight drive down highway 1. I was looking for a clean and reasonably priced place that I could count on. Ann is the owner operator and is super nice...

The magic fingers bed was a reminder of traveling with my parents as a child. The room was clean and the lady at the desk was fantastic. Apparently the walls are a little thin as I was awakened at 2AM by an unknown woman apparently in the throes of passion along with the sound of a headboard thumping against the...

This "mom & pop" little motel has been in the same Chinese-American family for 3 generations. It is clean, updated with comfortable beds, pleasant decor & furnishings and very well maintained. If you've never experienced the great American motel tradition of "Magic Fingers" vibrating beds, it is still here and only a quarter for 15 relaxing minutes. Mrs. Lin is...

I have nothing but high praise for this little motel. We spent one night on our way from LA to Pebble Beach. I booked based on the TA reviews and we were not disappointed. Staying here is like a step back into time. Super clean and comfortable rooms. Yes, we were there during the October 2014 heat wave and the...
