“Modest and Clean Accommodations”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

This hotel is very 1950's. Though it hasn't been "modernized", this hotel has been well maintained and kept very clean. The walls are pretty thin. The beds are comfortable and room is adequate with small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom is small with little space to put your "stuff" down--though it did have a real medicine cabinet if you wished to unload your toiletries. The water pressure was great. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel is in short walking distance to water, shops and restaurants. This is a non-smoking, no pets hotel (which is perfect for us). If what you're looking for is a clean, adequate room without paying an arm and a leg, this is what you're looking for. If you're looking for a larger room with the latest decor and fancy amenities, then you need to pass on this. I would stay here again and recommend it as well.

We had a AWESOME 4 day stay! The owners were awesome! The rooms were very clean! Every morning the owner would say hi to us and make sure we had everything we needed. I will always recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Morro Bay!

In Oct. we stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. Cute little room, near to restaurants (walking distance),harbour, etc. and the owner was really nice and friendly. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated.

My wife and I have been staying at the Sundown Inn for several years. The Inn was recommended to us years ago by a business associate and we have enjoyed staying here ever since. The owners are very pleasant and are there to meet the customers needs with a smile always. The rooms are clean and the grounds groomed with beautiful flowers always in bloom. The Inn is a hop, skip and a jump to all of the Morro Bay attractions. It is the best all around value in Morro Bay.

we have been comming to the usa for quite a few years on our twice yearly motorcycle trip and have stayed at various motels in morro bay,after reading tripadvisor reports we decided to try the sundown inn,it is in a quiet location 2 blocks from the waterfront.we were greeted by a smiling little lady who gave us the keys to view the room before we decided,we were able to park the bike right outside the door,the room was clean and comfortable,because this was advercado weekend all the other motels had inflated there prices,at $79 this was ideal so we stayed again on our return trip back up california,would highly recomend.

This little privately owned motel was a great find thanks to fellow Tripadvisor reviewers. A little retro but definitely sparkling clean. Comfortable bed, good shower (but pink tile!). Smiling and helpful management who obviously take pride in their business. Walking distance to waterfront and restaurants. Great value.

Old type single story motel, you know the type. very old fashioned, and not in a good way. The bathroom was tacky and not very clean, although everything was so old it would be hard to make it look clean. Walls are thin so bring earplugs in case you have noisy neighbours. I didn't like the mouldy smell either. I know you may think that it would be quaint to stay here, but think about it!
