I took my family to Masterpiece hotel and ended up paying $247 for a room with non working heater. Woke up to damp cold room. Felt like camping. To make matters worse Amy at front desk in the morning was rude and wouldn’t allow me to speak with manager.

Quiet and well-maintained, this is a very comfortable place to stay. We stayed during the covid 19 crisis and were confident in the cleanliness and extra measures by staff. Amber was especially accommodating and we will stay there again!

Really like this place, location great and got a great winter rate. Wanted fireplace, jacuzzi, king bed and patio. Close to everything. Room was very clean and everything works. Great staff. Coffee pot in room. Breakfast good. I also had a glass of wine and cheese/crackers on arrival in lobby. We walked to dinner 3 minute walk. Parking was adequate. Definitely will stay again and recommend to friends.

A wonderful hotel not far from the beach and central Morro Bay. Very clean with ample examples of european art throughout the hotel. We only stayed for one night, but I would definitely recommend this hotel to any traveler in the area.

Car parking on site is great. Hotel is very clean. Rooms and bathrooms are old fashion. Old dusty smell lingers in hotel bedroom carpet. The rooms are definitely due a refurbishment. Book a room on first floor...as the ceilings are like wood and you hear every single foot step if you are on the ground floor. Breakfast is basic but it’s free, expect paper plates, plastic cutlery. Wine and cheese served from 5-6pm very basic...plastic glasses...but it’s free.
