This hotel was adequate for our purpose. We just wanted a few days to go explore the central coast. We needed a place to stay while we went to Paso Robles, Atascadero, etc. The bed was comfortable and that's all we needed

We stayed here for a Christmas get away/Anniversary, and had a really great time. It's unique but what makes it great is the staff, They are so friendly and helpful. The house keepers really take pride in their work. Rooms are very clean & fresh even though it is an old hotel. The continental breakfast is very nice but what...

I wanted to introduce my boyfriend to a wonderful getaway in my favorite place, Morro Bay, before our holiday break. Although we only stayed for about three days, our stay was AMAZING. I called a day ahead to make sure everything was set, and the receptionist assured me my reservation was good to go and let me know we'd be...

We stayed at this hotel to celebrate my fiance's birthday, part birthday and part romance. I paid the extra money for the king deluxe room with the fireplace expecting the WOW factor but was instead incredibly disappointed. We arrived for the 3 day stay, and were given keys to our room. After about 20 tries, the door finally opened and...

Walk to downtown, restaurants and shopping. It's off the 'beaten path" so it's quiet. Located in a more residential setting than most hotels, you'll feel more like a huge B & B than a hotel. The rooms are a bit small but so is the price! Good value.

Jacuzzi room was nice and worth the price, but not sure where they came up with "deluxe breakfast." No more "deluxe" than a typical Choice Hotels, Best Western, or Holiday Inn breakfast of hard boiled eggs, toast, bad danishes, bananas or apples, dry cereal, yogert, etc. Save the stomach space and go to Frankie and Lola's a few blocks away...

This impressive, well-located hotel on Main Street in Morro Bay has personality. It's an older building, but has clean, spacious accommodations and comfortable beds. The hotel gets its name because of the abundance of art prints by masters that adorn each room and the corridors. In addition to the free breakfast (which is far more than a "continental" breakfast), they...

Every year, I drive back from San Francisco to San Diego along the PCH/Big Sur scenic route and stay overnight in the Morro Bay/Pismo/SLO area. This year was a Morro Bay year and I have to say this hotel is one of the best looking ones available in Morro Bay. The rooms are very large and have a modern look....

This was my second stay at this quaint little cozy hotel in Morro Bay. The staff is great and quick to respond to your every need. The wine and cheese hour is a special treat you don't find at many hotels, as is the delicious continental breakfast. The lighting and paintings throughout the hotel are unique and beautiful, and most...

Got a groupon for this hotel. Clean, everything works good. The staff is very pleasant and accomodating. Stayed in a king size room and there was lots of room. The continental breakfast was nice (waffles, toast, muffins, juice, yogurt, fruit, and coffee.
