“Hospitality and Location”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We stayed for a week at the Pleasant Inn in Morro Bay and what a find! It is a small nostalgic type motel reminiscent of those from the 60's that has been updated in the past couple of years. Big bonus is that Sandy the manager is there on site, is well invested in the area, and has a wealth of information and suggestions to make your stay an adventure and enjoyable. Our unit had a "full" kitchen. There is a stove and oven, mini fridge and microwave. For the most part, the kitchen is equipped but could be updated with new cooking and prep wares, they are a bit dated. It sufficed for the amount of meals we were planning to make since the area was so rich in dining and eating establishments. With that said, the motel is an easy walk down to the Embarcadero that hosts a great array of restaurants and some shops as well as Main Street that boasts the same. If you are staying for the weekend, park your car and leave it if your goal is to get to know Morro Bay. The "Rock" is within blocks, great dining almost at your front door, and a stroll on the beach within easy reach and access by foot (1/2 or so mile). The only downside was internet/wifi access. It was hit and miss.This was a working vacation and we were forced to rely on our portable travelling device services. Another issues was that there is not a hair dryer in the bathroom or any outlets within reach to plug one in if you brought your own. We went to a drug store and bought a multi-plug surge protector so we could use our printer and computer. With that said, we will definitely return. It is a charming and wonderful establishment.

Room Tip: One with a full kitchen.

Hello 4everjung!

Love the name by the way.... Thank you for staying with us and all the great feedback regarding our little inn and special comments about Sandy our property manager. We really appreciate you taking the time to pass onto others about your visit and Morro Bay. I will check on the internet to see why a lack of full access and fix it asap so others don't experience the same type of issue.

I will pass onto Sandy your wonderful comments too and we hope you will return again and maybe not have to work while visiting, hehehehe.

Have a wonderful week!

Jim

My husband and I just returned from a weekend stay at the Pleasant Inn and we absolutely loved it. We found this gem on our last trip to Central California. We had stayed at the Pacific Shores Inn and were very disappointed. We would not recommend that dismal motel. We had walked by the Pleasant Inn several times and on one occasion stopped and asked to see the rooms. The front desk woman was very nice and took the time to show us several rooms. They have been recently remodeled and are very well appointed, with kitchenettes in most if not all the rooms. The décor was really nice and the rooms had a great fresh feel to them. So, on this trip we had the pleasure of staying at the Pleasant Inn and would highly recommend it. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, awesome location (a block up from the water) and just an overall wonderful experience. At the last minute, we had to bring along our dog and they welcomed him and the very nominal pet fee included a blanket, treats, dish and doggie bags! What a great experience. We will be travelling to this area every other month or so and the Pleasant Inn will be our motel of choice. Can't wait to go back!!

What a special Birthday surprise at Pleasant Inn in Morro Bay! My husband went in to reserve our room. It was a very clean, updated room with a small kitchenette. And DOG friendly! Parking in front and out our back door where the lawn area was. Cute chairs and tables are also around the property. What a special surprise when I went down to Dorn's for a to go order and as I was walking back to motel, I looked up and the motel sign said "Happy Birthday Chris". This goes to show the staff and management there pay attention and go the extra mile. Loved the triple sheeting, new bed, hardwood floors and those lamps for reading in bed were great! Dog bowl, treats and extra bags...I could go on. Thank you so much for making my day even more special. We look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Corner room with kitchenette, king bed and pet friendly. Ocean peek view, large refridgerator, stove...

Very clean, nice touches, modern and new. Great location near bars, restaurants and shops but also very quiet.

Really nice beds - SO comfortable and really well priced. Lots of extras like a nice kitchen which we used, wifi, heating and parking. Perhaps these are all things that you would take for granted... But non the less, they worked well!

Spent the week here - place is soo good I hate to review it, because I don't really want to compete for my room when I return. Definitely a keeper if you have kids or pets. Very family and pet friendly, very clean and well maintained. Also only about a block from the harbor at Morro Bay, with about fiffteen restaurants and night spots within about a five minute walk.

Room Tip: Room one has ocean views and lots of windows. Best room in the place.
