My wife wanted to stay at this place for a long time and we finally did. Unfortunately the roman spa was down during our stay which was her main reason wanting to stay here. The room was very nice, it had a king size bed, a couch which also had a bed that pulled out and they provided portable cribs(playpens)...

When we travel to Morro Bay we stay at Masterpiece Hotel. The staff has always accommodated us and up graded our room for us on our anniversary because they always knew we came in February for it. Rooms are clean, continental breakfast is good it's not large but you can pick cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, muffins, hard boiled eggs, fruit...

Love this motel! We've stayed here once before for our anniversary and wanted to come back. Although, the room was a little on the warm side as there is no air conditioning. We opened the outside door which helped cool the room down and there's a little fan in the room.

At check in I asked if our room was upstairs. She said no, but that we could have a complimentary upgrade for an upstairs room! It had a fireplace and a tempurpedic mattress. There was a nice view of Morro Rock and you could see a bit of ocean. The housekeeping staff had left the room immaculate, and the tissues...

We decided to have an overnight get away. We were greeted by a friendly young woman at the desk. This is an older hotel but very nice. They served wine, cheese and crackers at 5. Along with spinach dip and cookies. Sparkling apple cider for those who don't drink wine. The room we had was the king suite with a...

Hotel is several blocks UP hill from down town. Room was lovely and spacious. However Room 102 is the only one with a tiny 1 chair balcony overlooking the freeway off ramp. Room ceiling seems to be exceeding thin when guests are upstairs. OK when no one is there but NOT good when heavy and loud people are above. Staff...

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,...
