This is not a Hilton, but it is a lovely, simple hotel with a great, quiet location. The service is good, but again, this is not a full service hotel. At the rates they charge, you get a great room with a comfortable bed in a location that provides peace and quiet.

The hotel is OK, the spa is very nice but the service here sucks. The hotel is under renovations (we didn’t know). The “breakfast nook” is a guest room that lacks adequate power to service the breakfast equipment and kept loosing power. The first time it took 35 min to locate a

We apologize that your stay was less than you expected. We are currently undergoing a major renovation of the hotel. While the area that we are currently serving breakfast in is small it won't be forever. When we are finished with our lobby and breakfast area it will be fantastic. Our hope is that you will give us another chance the next time you find yourself in Morro Bay. Nevertheless we wish you happy future journeys. Regards, Masterpiece Hotel

We love this hotel. The location is convenient, it's clean, has a huge heated jacuzzi, and the price is just right. The staff has always been friendly. There's restaurants near by, and Morro Rock is just a short ride away.

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

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.

"If they are working on renovation, be sure to avoid those areas that might have fresh paint."
"they serve a breakfast but go early as the small dining room fills up quickly."
"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."
