From the cheery greeting by Brandon to the friendly good bye from the owner that rushed out to speak with us , we were very happy to stay here. Location is great, parking no problem and room dated but clean with fridge and coffee maker and microwave as well as free WiFi. Priced very reasonable we sure will be back....

We were very pleased to find this sweet and clean little motel in Morro Bay. Rooms were a nice size, attractively decorated, high ceilings, lovely baths. Location was city center, and just 2 short blocks to the harbor district and sights. Price was very reasonable, and manager was helpful and friendly. Very comfortable stay. Recommend calling the owner manager directly...

Stayed here a few weeks ago and enjoyed our stay. Very clean old fashioned motel with everything you need. Very friendly, good location and great value. What a find to have the still working magic fingers antique machine on the bed. Recommended!

The Sundown Inn is a very well kept small motel in the downtown area of Morro Bay! It is easy to walk to coffee shops and quaint thrift shops from its location on Main Street. It's also easy to walk to the Marina just a few blocks down the street. You can do it....I did it 35 weeks pregnant! The...

Family owned motel. Owner was friendly and accommodating. Room decor needs updating hopefully to a neutral tone. Loved the bathroom with the stylish tile and steamy glass doors as it was recently renovated. Great price and mattress.

We spent two pleasant nights here last week. Instead of the cookie cutter, expensive chain hotels, we are spending our nights in small business owned motels at responsible prices. We found a gem here with friendly, helpful owners, newly remodeled, clean rooms with tv, microwave, refrig, hair dryer, comfortable beds all for a more than responsible price. Can't ask for...

Our room was quiet, comfortable, and clean. We needed a peaceful place for a good night's sleep and that is exactly what we got. We were able to sleep with the windows open to get a nice, cool breeze coming through our room. There isn't anything super fancy about this place, but it was a great spot for rest during...

What a comfortable stay we had at this pleasant motel. This place had strangers in the parking lot chatting with each other about what a great find it was. Our room had plenty of sunlight and was very tastefully decorated. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location, just two blocks from the waterfront, was perfect - we walked...

Wonderful family runs this little mom-n-pop motel. The property is retro. However, the owners have renovated and maintained it well. The rooms are spotless. Just look at the collection of flowering plants outside the office.... a sign that the owners love their property. This is a Morro Bay treasure. Agree completely with an the review by Steve D.

Yes it is old, yes it is basic. However who cares when a motel is maintained as well as this one. All fittings are renewed and the place is spotlessly clean. As we were leaving the Manager was opening all the windows of the changeover rooms so that they would air. This attention to detail includes real coffee cups and...
