Nice hotel in the center of Morro Bay, close to the water. Very comfortable bed, great WIFI, and good simple breakfast choices. The spa is really a very clean indoor pool. We loved it. And the best part was the staff was gracious and helpful. Thank you. We will be back

It is a short walk down to the main resturant area and tourist shops. The motel is very clean and kept up very nicely, almost looks like recent remodel. The... More

Very nice and clean hotel. Great location - only short walk (3-5 min)to the beach promenade with views and restaurants for every taste. Very convinient parking place with backdoor directly to the main holl. We loved our short stay there (was 2 adults + 2 kids). Highly recommends this hotel!

Excellent service, views, clean, comfortable and it even has a wonderful view of the bay and Morro Rock from the enclosed spa!! The breakfasts and cheese & wine in the evenings are great and they always have a fire in the fireplace in the cozy lobby!! This is the only place I stay when I visit beautiful Morro Bay!!!

Great views of Morro rock and the embarcadero. They went out of their way to make our bike parking in a convenient location. Ice machine didn't work but they had ice available at the check in desk.

I love staying at this hotel, so close to the bay and all shops and restaurants within walking distance. Friendly, clean and quiet. The changing views of Morro Rock throughout the day are fabulous from the balconies. Breakfast is plentiful and varied.
