“Will return for years & years & years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

We luckily found the Beach Bungalow Inn and will continue to come back year after year. Just like you're doing now, we searched online and chose a place that fit our needs (price, location, non-hotel) as we drove from San Francisco to San Diego. That was March 2013. We've been back twice since and love it more and more every time.

Beach Bungalow Inn is a family owned business. The accommodations are cozy chic, and the beds are very comfortable. There are journals in each room where guests can share their travels with each other. It's a nice touch.

If you do plan to stay, we highly recommend Frank & Lola's for breakfast and Windows on the Water for dinner. Enjoy the magic of Morro Bay at the Beach Bungalow Inn and Suites!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. If you have a family and need a kitchenette choose one of the suites.

We stayed here for only one night on the way to Santa Cruz--we could have stayed a little longer! Our room is small, but updated, clean and appealing. The renovation was done very tastefully! They got rid of the tub to make room for a more spacious shower. There's free wifi, free breakfast or lunch at a nearby restaurant, cable and air-conditioning. The seating area in the room is really not big enough to hang out in, but there are two comfy seating area outside--one with a fire pit. The location is within walking distance from the Morro Bay downtown area and about 15 minutes from downtown SLO. While hanging out at the inn, we noticed that there are two rooms in the alley area. Although I never saw what those rooms look like, I'm assuming it's a less desirable spot to be in. Overall, we had a great experience at this place and would recommend it to family and friends. P.S. If you have kids, they provide a decent mix of beach toys they can use for the days.

Good Morning,

Thank you for staying with us and passing on your great comments about your trip to our inn. We appreciate your valuable insight and always looking to improve each of our guests experience. I hope you had a terrific time in Morro Bay too and loved our town and all the nature it offers just steps away. By the way, the few rooms on the side of our inn are really nice and cozy and many guests seem to love them because they are more secluded.

Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and thanks again for staying with us.

Jim

Pros - small family operation hence very welcoming & helpful, surprisingly smart décor, decent location
Cons - Noisy (poor sound insulation?)
This is a great option for exploring the quaint & rather underrated seaside town of Morro Bay.
Don't opt for the complementary breakfast at the Hungry Fisherman restaurant. It was simply the worst breakfast we have ever had.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for taking the time to tell others about your great stay at our inn, we really appreciate it. If I can speak to you further regarding your experience you had with the local restaurant during your stay that would be terrific. I would like to pass it on to them so they can resolve this type of issue so other guests do not experience the same.

We really appreciate your feedback and business and hope you will return again soon!

Stayed just one night in this hotel and I wish it could of been more. Beautiful room thay was actually very modern inside. Clearly the hotel has undergone an extensive renovation. Room had a kitchen and living room that given more short stay in didn't use bit everything was there to allow for a great longer stay. Hotel staff were great, we arrived 3 hours early and the girl on reception arranged for us to check in earlier after getting our room cleaned faster for us. Parking is easy and there are plenty of spaces. Fre wifi in room, water, tea and coffees.
You also get a voucher to use for lunch or breakfast at some of the places in morro bay which was a real nice idea. We didn't use ours as we left too early but there we a lot of options to use and some really gray places. I would defo stay here again as a stop over in between vegas and San fran and hopefully do a few more nights.

We stopped at Morro Bay for a night when travelling from LA to San Francisco and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was excellent; two very comfortable bedrooms, nicely modernised with everything you could want. The staff we also friendly and helpful. We used our free vouchers to have a wine flight at the local wine bar which was a nice aperitif before our dinner. I would recommend Morro Bay as a stop off or for a longer stay as it's a nice laid back sea side town with a more traditional feel.

Firstly must thank Tripadvisor for enabling us to find this place. We spent a few nights in Monterey and needed somewhere to stop over enroute to Santa Barbara while travelling route 1. The Beach Bungalow Inn and suites is like your 70s motel on the outside with a surfie feel and on the inside the rooms are awesome. The check in time of 4pm is fine for travelling and the checkout time of 12pm is great because it was hard to get the family out of the most comfortable beds we found on our 4 week West Coast trip. Thoroughly recommend, suggest book ahead as it is very popular!

My husband and I were on a road trip and stayed at many hotels (mostly 4 stars and up) and this was our absolute favorite place!

Don't let the outside, motel-looking building fool you. The rooms are top notch. We stayed in the "king" room with a living room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a bedroom.

I WISH we would have stayed longer than one night, but we will definitely be recommending this place to all our family and friends.

Book this place and enjoy!
