“Birthday Oasis”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed here while on a road trip camping along the California coast. It was his birthday so we decided to find a hotel and leave the tent packed up for the night. We really enjoyed our time at the Sundown Inn! The owner was so sweet to us. We mentioned his birthday at some point upon checking in and a few minutes later she walked over with a little gift bag that had a Morro Bay magnet inside! We were so impressed by her service. The room was very clean, the shower was really pleasant, the hotel is a great walkable location to the Embarcadero, and we have already recommended the property to friends! It was a great spot to spend his birthday!

After got frustrated after be told there is no rooms available by over 20 hotels/inns near Morro bay, finally I got two rooms in SunDown Inn. The service make us feel comfortable. Even they don't provide breakfast buffet, we got 4 hand made muffin for breakfast after the owner knew that we will start our trip early in the morning. The room is small, simple but very clean. Price is a little bit high but considering this is hot season, the price is acceptable.

I'm a Fussbudget...cleanliness is my first priority! Sundown Inn met my standards..unlike some Hamptons, or Super 8's..even a world better than The Cove in Lake Geneva!
Family owned and ran, very personable, prompt, friendly, helpful..Great Value

Cute and cozy!!! Classic Pink bath room tile and flat screen TV. Thus motel is within nice walking distance to many restaurants and the bay. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful and friendly. You can tell the owners truly care. Would stay here again.

The room had the extra little touches that took what looked like a typical motel from the outside and transformed it into a homier stay. The owners are happy to give extra information about the town. It really is more of an old-fashioned strip motel than an inn, but the rooms are very clean, there is a microwave and small refrigerator, ice, and all you need for a short stay.

The location is superb! Right off the main road, and 2 blocks from the harbor. We were able to walk to local restaurants, and even out to the rock from the inn. I always thought that the rock was an island. You can actually walk, ride bikes or even drive out there.

I left my cell phone charger in the room, and the owners promptly returned it to me, when I called, then sent them a self-addressed stamped envelope. It was just one more service that really helped to make our stay memorable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Away from the main road, and a corner room are quieter.

This family run inn is very sweet. Staying there is as if staying with them in their home. It is a trip to the '60s when California was really magic. Somewhat whimsical and tiny in many ways, the rooms have everything needed. The decor is not "motel box", but has the owner's touch. The inn was full and all guests were smiling. Ask about breakfast to get 15% discount on breakfast just two blocks away at a cozy restaurant. The marina is a few blocks down the hill. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: We got the last room in the back corner. It was very quiet.

The first thing I gotta say is that this room was very clean. The owners have been there a long time and quite tastefully renovated the place by updating the plumbing and fixtures but keeping the charm. Great location, too! I would definitely stay there again!!!
