My wife and I had a long day, touring on our motorbike from Sausalitio, along Skyline Blvd, and then down to Morro Bay. The coast was cool and foggy and the valley was in the triple digits, so when we arrived in Marro Bay the late afternoon, we needed a great room and that is exactly what we found.
Rick at the front desk was super. We got into our room, the Bay View Suite, had a quick shower and before long my wife was outside on a paddle board, which she rented from the onsite rental office. After a 30 minute paddle, Rick offered us the use (free) of a double open ocean kayak and my wife and I spent the better part of the rest of the evening paddling around the Bay, taking pictures of the seals, pelicans and the wildlife around the bay.
The room was wonderful, however it was kayaking along the Bay on a warm, clear and calm August evening that remain a highlight for years to come.
There is a steady stream of boats and other marine traffic which makes sitting out on the deck very pleasant. And the hotel is only a short walk back into town were there several good places to sit and enjoy drinks and meal overlooking the bay.
We love the fresh ocean air, but we needed to close the windows at night as the seals on the nearby dock seemed to sleep during the day, but remained rather active all evening.
