The rates are extremely competitive. Comparing similar class accommodation, it's the cheapest motel i have stayed in California by a large margin. Even though cheap, the interior of the room/motel remains clean/neat/tidy. Just 2 blocks from the town centre, you could find restaurants easily accessible. Host (from taiwan) is helpful and friendly.

The front desk was super friendly and accommodating. The iron didn't work and the room smelled a bit like mildew. Those things aside, the room was clean and the view was awesome and the price was great.

Stayed here for one night whilst driving the Pacific Coast Highway. Very quaint, good service, lovely room, very clean and an amazing price! Had everything you would expect in a room for a much higher price, wifi, tv, fridge, microwave. Only down side is the thin walls but this is more of a problem of the lack of consideration from...

My husband and I stopped for a night in Morro Bay when driving up the coast. This motel is conveniently located , very clean and the bed was really comfortable ! There are sweet touches like china coffee cups that match the room . We asked for a dinner recommendation and loved the suggestion. I would highly recommend the Sundown...

While on a recent vacation from Ohio, my wife and I stayed at the Sundown Inn in Morro Bay, California. The hotel was very clean and the owners were very accommodating. The hotel offered no frills, but it price was very reasonable, and I would certainly stay there again.

Nothing fancy (neither is the price) but it is centrally located and clean. it's a great value. Nice owners too. It's any easy walk downhill to the harbor where there are some fine restaurants and places to have a beer or glass of wine.

Very happy with our choice for 3 night's accommodation in Morro Bay and would certainly stay at the Sundown Inn the next time we are in the area. Clean, practical, friendly, good value accommodation. Well situated. Had it been summer the lack of air conditioning might have been a problem but it is September and the fan was adequate. The...

Let's be honest: travel accommodations are a rip-off. But this place is a deal and a reminder that not all motel deals are or look alike. As other recent reviewers wrote, the bathroom was renovated - thumbs up. The plank ceiling is slightly pitched - interesting and attractive look. I liked it. The room is appointed in a quaint and...

Very clean and unique. Our room was well decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Rooms have in room coffee service with china cup, very nice touch! The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating. Only a couple of blocks to main street and famous Morro Rock. For $89 it is a real bargain.
