This was a great location to stay at. No view of the beach or boardwalk area, but it was less than a 5/15 minute easy walk to the pier area. You could eat your continental breakfast in a comfortable room or out on the glassed in patio at this inn. This was a fun location to stay at. Lots of...

We were in a bind and this was the hotel that we got from Hotels by Me. They charged $280 for this hotel that was old and outdated. The hallways reminded me of a rehabilitation place where your aunt goes after a knee surgery. The beds were very soft and bouncy. The "breakfast" was breads and "cheerios" (as they advertised...

Great location in Morro Bay. Beautiful views from our room. Staff friendly and helpful. Brought us extra towels and pllows immediately. This is close enough to walk to the Street fair, downtown and the Embarcadero. Nice breakfast area. You can eat inside or outside.

La Serena Inn is conveniently situated just a few minutes walk from the harbour. We were very pleased with the standard off our room -a third floor room with a balcony. There was also a nice terrace off the breakfast room with a lovely view of the rock. The hotel provides complementary coffee all day and offer cider and biscuits...

La Serena met our expectations. We chose the hotel based on reviews by other travelers and we were not disappointed. The rooms were good size and very clean. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

We booked this trip for a weekend getaway to sleep in, sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean views. I booked a suite with an ocean view. The receptionist was very sweet. Our room was clean but very aged and worn with tears in the couch and large holes in the curtains. Our refrigerator was not plugged in nor...

The staff at the La Serena Inn was sad to read of your less than enjoyable stay with us. Unfortunatly there are some things out of our control, such as when the bank decides to do thier landscaping. Our little seaside town fills up with happy families vacationing in the summer and it can get noisy at times. We are...

We were quite satisfied with our stay at this little hotel. The location is very accessible - just a couple of blocks away from the stores and places to eat. The interior could use a little updating but who needs to stay indoors if you have the a scenery to enjoy. Morro Bay is a very nice place to get...

We were driving from LA to SF and thought to stop by The Rock. I called the place en route and was told that a two bed suite with a sofa is available. I was quoted a standard room price and a suite price. I reserved and arrived shortly after. Got my paperwork done and on my way up to...

The La Serena Inn would like to apologize for the mix-up with the reservation. The front desk agent was a new employee and did admit to making a mistake with the description of the room to the guest. However we are confused that it was stated that the agent said she was "trained" to call such rooms suites, as that...

If you live in the central valley you visit Morro Bay in the summer and also know that there hasn't been any new Hotel construction in a long time in this small coastal town. Many of the properties that I remember as a kid in the 70's are still there and have undergone various ownership changes and various remodels. La...

A large, clean and comfortable room. There was a nice sun lounge area adjacent to the breakfast room, which meant we could take breakfast outside. Our room had a balcony, with sea view (albeit a side view). Very helpful staff.
