“Wow! Only place I will ever go in Morro Bay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

You have to stay in the Jacuzzi suite. They really go out of their way with the romance. The Roman spa downstairs is almost big enough to swim in. The breakfast area/cheese and wine worth sticking around for. The staff was very friendly. Out of our four day romantic trip, this was my favorite and also the least expensive.

What a great little Hotel. Immaculately clean, big room, wine and cheese every night was great, breakfast was fine to start the day. Slower time of year so we had the Roman Baths to ourselves every night. Just short walk each day to Waterfront, we will come again. Staff was helpful and friendly and even gave us hiking maps to state park nearby.

Stayed here on the drive over the pch; good value. The room was enormous, slightly cheesy decor but nice enough.

Would happily stay here again if in the area.

We have found the PERFECT place to stay up the Coast. The Masterpiece IS a masterpiece, it's immaculate, the staff is warm and welcoming, and the art is amazing. We had a wonderful time and will be back! It's no wonder we met so many returning guests, this place has it all!

Just returned from Morro Bay. I was surpriced how dificult it was to find a nice place to stay. We booked it 10 days in advance, most motels were sold out. The Masterpiece was OK. The room was a nice size, but overlooking the Main St. When we asked to change it, the other option was a smaller room, so we decided to keep what we have. The fireplace was nice to have. The beds were comfortable, but not the pillows. The carpet could use an upgrade. The place was clean, the staff friendly. The breakfast basic, but it saved time in the morning. Did not get a chance to use the spa. Over all it was expancive for what it had to offer.

Room Tip: away from main st is best if you can't deal with traffic noise

Thank you for posting your review of the El Morro Masterpiece, it's through your feedback that we are able to stay on track to reach our goal of a wonderful stay for each of our guests. You will find that our rates are comprable to other hotels in the area. And your right Main Street does get noisy especially on those event filled weekends. We wish you happy travels and hope to be able to accomodate you again.
