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.

Clean, comfortable hotel with a friendly and competent staff. Kai at the front desk is an exceptional employee. He should be the designated concierge, really knows the territory. We stay here every time we go to Morro Bay.

We stayed here for one night during our roadtrip and it was a very nice stay. Friendly staff and an original feeling over the hotel. The room was: Charming! The breakfast was: Good. You could make your own pancakes! No gluten free options except yoghurt.
