Great hotel, I was quite surprised! Great location, plenty of covered parking (was raining when we arrived), clean and well maintained property. We arrived quite late however staff was very accommodating, was able to grab my room keys from lock box and do formal check-in the following morning. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable! I loved there being 2 sinks,...

Room was clean and comfortable (except I thought the bed was uncomfortable but my daughter thought it was fine), staff was very nice with an efficient check in. Actually had four towels in a room with 2 doubles and a reservation for four (so many hotels only leave 3 sets of towels for 4 people...). Typical hotel breakfast which left...

Nice accomodations. Comfortable, good breaksfast, with a nice view of Morro Rock from the deck. It's walkable to Embarcadero, close to restaurants, shops and short driver or long walk from Morro Rock.

Wow, where do I begin? My (now) husband and I chose La Serena Inn for our elopement/honeymoon week, and boy, are we so glad that we did! The hotel is located in the heart of Morro Bay, super close to the beach/Morro Rock area. You can easily walk to all of the shops, restaurants, post office, etc.. The staff was...

This place more than tolerates canines. Darci found a plush doggie bed with a large dog biscuit on top when we entered the room. The owner apparently has connections with birders and we liked the information about local history, flora and fauna and the fine bird illustrations in the hall. A generous breakfast came with the room. It's just a...

Located just a short walk from the Embarcadero with its shops and bars, La Serena is a good choice for a short stay. Rooms are off internal corridors and there is a lift (elevator). Clean and with a good breakfast. I have stayed here before and for the price it would be one of my preferred places to stay in...

Another Anniversary at La Serena Inn. We called ahead direct to the Inn and got just what we wanted in a room and price. Again the people were Great and our stay was quiet. Unless they are slow, we've learned the best thing to do is to call some time before we go to make sure we get a room...

Has spacious and comfy rooms with a great under building car park. Easy minutes walk to street or seafront restaurants. Would stay again. Morro Bay is ideal as a stopover town doing the coast road to/from LA/SF

Really nice hotel with nice and friendly staff. Room was clean. Bed was comfy. Only bad thing I can say about this hotel room was a few stains on the carpet and a missing closet mirror /door. Within walking distance to the beach and shops. Would definitely stay here again!
