“Outdated and noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Walls are the thinnest I've ever had at a hotel, to the point where I could hear my neighbor's television even though it was at a very reasonable volume. The "full" breakfast is basically continental with microwaved eggs and mystery meat shaped as sausage. You can make your own waffle, which is about the only warm and "fresh" thing available for breakfast. Stairways are dirty and smell.

Upside is free parking and proximity to the Embarcadero. Staff is also nice and very friendly.

I don't recommend paying more than ~$70/night, which you can regularly get on priceline or hotwire.

Hadv a room with a beautiful view of the bay. The whirlpool bath was a nice luxury and the bed was very comfortable The breakfast was ok nothing special and it wasn`t a big breakfast area.
The free wine tasting each evening is a very nice touch and some of the wine tasted is well worth buying.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have a better view

We only spent one night in Morro Bay and should have planned on staying another day so we could see more of the Bay. The hotel is charmingly decorated. Breakfast was nothing extra special but nice. It was a nice location and close to the wharf so we were able to walk along the wharf.

At first I thought we had accidentally wandered into a residential home for older people. The chintzy decor and cheesy atmosphere gave us many giggles. This is not a hip hotel! However, having got over that, we enjoyed the big spa bath (with window into the bedroom), the large bed and the convenient location: great for wandering down to the restaurants and bars on the Embarcadero. Breakfast was free: juice, coffee, eggs, make-your-own waffles etc.

This hotel is wonderful!! The awesome room, concierge service and an amazing staff member named Colleen. There is a complimentary wine hour in the evening , breakfast in the morning, they made dinner reservations at an amazing restaurant. The room was beautiful with jacuzzi tub, fireplace with a beautiful view of Morro Rock and the harbor. A nice bonus was the rooftop garden!! Sssh don't tell anyone, it's our secret.

After being on the road for 2 days we arrived here and felt very relaxed soon. Our room was on the 3rd floor in the turret corner. It had a gas fireplace, a view of the harbor, seating area, and a large tub/shower. Our king bed was a four poster that had a step stool to help get up into it....and also, more importantly, very comfortable. Parking was available in a covered garage. It is located across the street from the visitor's center and a block from the stairway to the embarcadero. Be sure to drive or walk out to the Morro Rock. The only problem we had was the hot water would run out sporadically but not often.

the room was great, overall treatment was fine. view wonderful. disappointing that a personal item, (a Samsung Notebook) was removed from our room and the results have been at best , disappointing. Upon realizing that the item was missing, the staff was at best half baked and uninterested. They were not helpful even after pleading with them. They would not return phone calls. Even one last visit prior to our leaving the area they had to be asked three times to check the lost and found. This has been reported to the local police, I would say : do not leave anything in your room that you don't want to see be taken. What else can I say. I don't want to accuse anyone but the item was in my luggage when I got there, missing after two nights.

Room Tip: try to get a room facing the harbor.
