Reviewed 28 August 2014

Very clean and unique. Our room was well decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Rooms have in room coffee service with china cup, very nice touch! The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating. Only a couple of blocks to main street and famous Morro Rock. For $89 it is a real bargain.

First, the value for the price was excellent. Was $89 and we'd even forgotten to give our AAA number for a discount. This is an older property but clean, well kept up and refurbished. Free wifi. No air conditioning or fans. Morro Bay is very moderate even in August and we were comfortable.
As with many hotels I stay, the wifi slogged down as use increased in the evening and start to actually use it. It was better in the afternoon and early morning. Nice quiet area away from the bustle, but close enough to walk to the Embarcadaro.

Room Tip: Our corner room was a bit quieter because it only had an adjoining room on one side. The walls are f...

Spent the night in Beautiful Morro Bay on the way up the coast. Our stay at the Sundown Inn was pleasant. The room was neat and clean with an updated bathroom The staff was friendly. The motel is conveniently located for easy walking to shops and restaurants.

After a long drive from San Francisco to Morro Bay down Hwy #1 coast road - Sundown Inn was a breath of fresh air and a welcome. I had done the research and saw what prices were around the area. Sundown had the best price but then there is more...
The lady at the front desk was very helpful and cheery. She asked us if we needed help or was looking for things to do while staying.
The layout of the hotel was an old 50's motel.
We went to our rooms and did not know what to expect. Opening the door we were surprised to see a quant little room. It was like many Bed and breakfast we have stayed at before. Lace bed cover. Nice prints on wall. Lace on tables. The bonus was a fridge and microwave.
The room was very quite. We could hear the lighthouse off in the distance.
The next morning we were close enough to walk around the town.
This place was wonderful as a hotel by itself -- the price was nice and the staff was wonderful.
We will stay there again one day.

Room Tip: Room had Microwave and Fridge. Block away from 24 hour convenience / liquor store.

The Sundowner Inn in Morro Bay is very easy on the wallet. The rooms are clean, bathrooms updated, good king bed and nice people that run the motel. It's always a crapshoot with loud talkers and thin walls but after 10:00pm everyone went to bed and it was nice and quiet with no sounds but a distant fog horn.

Located a few blocks from Embarcadero this motel is neat and clean. We had no problem with our reservations and the prices were very reasonable for a beach town. Our room was small but nice. Equipped with a queen bed, frig, microwave, flat screen TV, and hair dryer. The bathroom had been recently renovated and was quite attractive. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We did have a bit of trouble with the thin walls and noise from the very amorous couple next door. We had trouble picking up the Wi-Fi in room #2. Good stay.

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! ;)
