We reserved the Master suite which provides a nearly 360° view. It books up far in advance, but it's worth the trouble. The parking lot is small, but there is plenty of nearby street parking. The "Roman" spa is a nice retreat and the hotel is very clean overall. It is, however, showing it's age in some respects, but my...

This was a really nice hotel-- beautiful wooden furniture, a Chagall print in the room, everything was spotless. Very walkable location in a small beach town. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was pretty good-- english muffins, toast, tea, coffee. The building is old but that doesn't make it less nice.

I had a room with a balcony that overlooked the rock and found the sunsets were just gorgeous while sitting out there with the free wine and cheese served in the afternoons. The art through out the hotel is amazing. There are book nooks in the halls where you can borrow a book to read. My room was spacious, clean,...

We booked the hotel in the last minute. The guy in the reception was very friendly and nice. He assisted us with everything we ask including recommendation for nice restaurant. - When we came to eat breakfast, many of the items were missing. The house keeping lady that was responsible for the breakfast was no where in sight and the...

We appreciate your feedback and hope you will accept our apology for the less than satisfactory breakfast service. It is not typical of the guest service we pride ourselves on at the Masterpiece. Management has been notified. We hope you will try us again on your next visit to Morro Bay. Regards, Masterpiece Hotel

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...
