“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Great location, minutes walk to morro bay marina.

The room is very clean and comfortable. Though the design is simple but we feel so cozy. Really value for money!

Anne was very helpful and friendly. She provided us information on where to go and often checked with us if everything was well.

We will definitely go back to sundown if we are there again.

Good job! ;)

great place to stay, and the very reaosnable price. My wife and I stayed at about 12 different motel/hotels on a road trip and this was one of the best places we stayed- location-wise and room quality. The beds were very nice and the bathrooms looked to be remodeled recently. Will be back for sure. Also- the staff is extremely nice and friendly- a reason to go here alone.

Trust the reviews of this hidden gem in Morro Bay! The Sundown Inn is a totally renovated motel. We only stayed one night because we were on our way to San Francisco via Monterey. Our queen room, #7 had a view of Morro Rock! Lovely place!

Room Tip: Ask for room #7. It has a view of Morro Rock (if it is not foggy conditions).

We travel to morro bay and stayed there for one night before the national day. The motel is so much better than we expected. It's very close to the beach, very quiet, very clean and the owner is super nice! Nice decorations, comfortable bed and clean bath room, you will definitely like it. 5 star no doubt!

From the minute we registered, we knew we were in for a special experience at the Sundown Inn in Morro Bay. The owners clearly take delight in hosting their guests and couldn't do enough to insure our comfort. Each guestroom is carefully decorated and the bedding is especially ultra comfortable. Hands down, this is the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in (and frankly, beats many of the big name hotels for cleanliness!).

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms at this inn.

We were traveling to San Francisco and stayed a couple of nights. I called the motel (and it is a motel), for the rates and was only able to secure a handicapped room. This was ok - it just meant a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. There was a microwave and frig, but the frig didn't seem cold. Perhaps we didn't let it run long enough. The decor is 1980s, but is well maintained - a bit like stepping back into the past. The location is great and in easy walking distance to the waterfront with shops and dining. We took our bicycles and there are nice bike trails out to the Morro Bay rock and to the State Park. The motel is nothing fancy, but offers a great value. Plus, Ann, the owner, is very friendly and I like supporting a mom & pop motel rather than a big chain.

This was our first stay at the Sundown Inn in Morro Bay and what a delight! The owners are very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Our room was very comfortable and extremely clean which is a very big plus for me! The bathrooms have been updated and the towels are big and fluffy and there was plenty of hot water each morning. The location is very good with the waterfront area an easy 2 1/2 block walk. Very affordable compared to the other hotel/motels I called and with much more charm. i would highly recommend this motel. You won't be disappointed!
