We had a pleasant stay over weekend. The hotel staff was friendly. All standard amenities (except for the AC) were there and in a good shape. I liked that the King Standard Room was big. There were a microwave and mini refrigerator (with freezer) in the room. Continental

We decided to stay in Morro Bay for two nights at New Years. We could easily walk to the Embarcadero from this hotel to have dinner. Breakfast is skimpier than many but there is a small breakfast room. To their credit, they do serve wine and cheese each evening. We met some

Drove into town just before sunset. Got a room. Grab a glass of wine and headed for the docks. Just in time. Easy wal. Beautiful background with the Rock to see sunset. Lots of people about. Back to the room. Nice view from our king sizzle bed. Little balcony with 2 chairs.

The staff here were very friendly and made the stay ok. However the room proved a little disappointing. The carpet didn’t feel like it had been cleaned in quite a while. A wash used wash cloth was still in the shower and one of the bath towels had stains on it. The in room

Does the penthouse have a view of ocean
I've never stayed in the penthouse. Guessing from it's location, it most likely has a view of Morro Rock and perhaps a small part of Morro Bay. It definitely has a view of the several streets between the hotel and Embarcadero St. Keep in mind that Morro Bay is an embayment created by a sand spit that separates it from the ocean. The spit is probably about a mile in length and has many sand dunes and vegetation. It is not uncommon to see deer on the sand spit at dusk. You need to get north of Morro Rock to see the open ocean. You may also see it in some rental houses in Baywood Park that are on a slope above the southeast end of the bay. I hope this helps.

"Get a second story room, or listen to elephants dancing on your head."
"There is no elevator, so be sure to ask for a1st floor ahead of time if that is an issue."
"Large room and comfortable bed."
"Great location, fire place, comfy bed, master suite was very spacious"
