Reviewed 21 November 2013

My family and I just got back from a trip to Morro Bay. We were thrilled with the rooms. Clean and tidy, they were homey, updated and elegant. I loved the gas fireplace. It makes me want one at home! The bed was comfortable. The views were beautiful and it was really close to the water. There was even a fire pit in the evening available. If it weren't so cold out we might've used it! The staff was very friendly. The rates were great as well. I definitely recommend it! They have different types of rooms for different needs. We had a room with two bedrooms and one bathroom adjoining, which worked great for our family!

Booked our stay based on some photos and reviews from TripAdvisor. Had an excellent stay at Beach Bungalow in Morro Bay, Sandspit bungalow. Old style motel updated for a wonderful experience. Extremely friendly and accommodating, very clean and so comfortable, loved the gas fireplace for the heat in the room. Can't wait to go back! We are pretty picky about where we stay and this was just lovely. The restaurants to choose from were endless, walking distance to the main part of town and the bay.

Room Tip: Sandspit room has the queen bed, large room, fireplace and wonderful (though small) shower.

What a lovely place Beach Bungalows is, a nice big room with a big comfy bed, really clean and a fire! We put the fire on just because it was there, we really didn't need!!! The garden had a little water feature which was nice to fall asleep although competed with the seals who honked happily through the night. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who was travelling that way. Also, the host was extremely friendly and welcoming, awesome place :)

Thank you for staying with us and we are very happy you enjoyed our little Inn. Also, I'm glad you loved the calming music of the seals at night. There's not many places in the world that you can truly enjoy the sounds of nature while falling a sleep, haha. We hope to see you again when you travel to the US and we appreciate your business.

Have a wonderful day!

We stayed at the Beach Bungalow Motel in Morro Bay, CA, for two nights, and absolutely loved it. The customer service was wonderful, and the free breakfast or lunch option at nearby restaurants was great. Would definitely recommend it! Our room faced The Rock and the view was special. We could walk to everything.

We booked ahead, based on the great Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed.

Spacious, well appointed and comfortable bungalow room with many lovely 'extras', especially the glowing gas fire. We hardly needed it for heat, in September, but it gave a really welcoming effect in the evening when we arrived. Appreciated the 'quality' coffee / machine; and really comfortable beds. A memory is of the huge ceiling fan!!

A rare 'perk' was the fire pit and seating, set in the middle of the bungalows and parking area, where you can relax over a drink in warmth in later evening.

Wonderful offer of free / inclusive breakfast at choice of local restaurants; we opted for Frankie and Lola's on the seafront and were impressed with the choice offered and the meals we chose.

Only sorry we could only spend one night, on our travels from LA to San Francisco. I could have stayed and enjoyed a much longer stay! Hope to do so some other time. ;-)

Room Tip: All rooms seem good; resort is set on a quiet street in Morro Bay.

Just brilliant. The host could not be more welcoming. We were very tired after a long drive and he quickly got us all set in our room, booked us for dinner at a great restaurant, The Galley, and showed us to our gorgeous room with fire roaring.Fantastic rooms, great host and well located for the seafront and resturants and bars.

We were looking for a good place for an overnight stop between Monterey and Santa Barbara and found the Beach Bungalow Inn and Suites through Trip Advisor. It lived up to the ratings. We didn't know Morro Bay but it was a nice contrast to Monterey and Carmel-as a commercial fishing port as well as catering for boating and other water sports, it's a bit more down-to-earth. The wildlife is an attraction: you can get very close to the sea lions and can hardly avoid hearing them. The Rock looks spectacular as the sun sets behind it.

We had Blue Butterfly, which is a two bedroom suite. All very tastefully decorated in a modern style rather than the fake olde-worlde look that a lot of hotels favour, with a mix of dark wood, rich colours and lots of white paint. The bathroom was well equipped and spacious, although it had a shower only. There was plenty of storage space, although no safe. Everything was very clean.

Heating and cooling was taken care of by a gas fire (in a traditional fireplace) and ceiling fan - we needed both at different times of the day. It was very nice and romantic to be able to sit in the very comfortable bed in the morning with the fire going, drinking real coffee from the machine provided in the room.

Outside, there is a well maintained garden with a fire pit, which would be quite an attraction on chilly evenings. You park outside your room or very nearby.

We opted for the breakfast vouchers included in the price of the room. Frankie and Lola's is a few minutes' walk away down by the shore-you get a huge American breakfast and generous amounts of coffee.

The staff and proprietors are friendly, chatty and will give you lots of advice on things to do and see in the area.

We would recommend this place to anyone. We don't know how they do it for the money.
