Had a great time here, loved the room, the view, and friendly (but not invasive) people--both those who worked at the hotel and those who visited. We had the feeling of being away from it all, yet it was a short drive to anything we wanted. The only moment of unpleasantness came when I insisted to housekeeping that I did...

We came upon the listing for this property at 9:30 p.m. on a Friday night in June. We had the surprise of two glorious nights without the kids for an anniversary celebration and needed a place in the peak of summer rates, while on a budget. We are so glad we found it! The price was totally reasonable and while...

The room was clean, very nice view of the bay, awesome grounds to sit with views, and the cafe next door where the included breakfast was served was great. The people there each morning (staff and guest) made it all the better. I would return there without any hesitation. Only less than great occurrence, lady at desk gave us a...

The outside was very charming - great landscaping and view of the Bay. Our room was unfortunately not bayside, so there was no view (our first floor window looked out onto the parking lot). Would assume the rooms along the bay just cost more or were booked when I reserved. The furniture was dated, but the mattress was actually very...

We have checked and you were staying in one of our Garden Rooms, which we refer to as our "no view" rooms. We hope you will come to stay with us again and when you are ready to do so, you might want to select one of our Bay view rooms in the Main Building. The ground floor rooms with...

I found this hotel surreptitiously when I was looking at Google.Maps to see the location of various Morro Bay hotels. When I drilled down in TripAdvisor I decided this was a place to try for a couple nights. The inn is made up for three buildings. The main two level building with, I think, 12 rooms. Five are upstairs of...

We loved this Inn. Small and very friendly. Our room faced the bay and gorgeous gardens. Sitting in lawn chairs as the sun sets enjoying a glass of wine is highly recommended. The hotel offers coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. Staff is extremely friendly and the room was quite nice. Ours included a spotting scope to...

I am hesitant to write this review because it is such a hidden gem that I sort of want to keep it as a great secret getaway because that is just how it feels.

And you just never want to leave. Like going back in time, to stay in a tiny community, simply lovely, calm, and the noise is that of birds.... the tide comes in and the tide goes out, and you can watch it from your own patio, overlooking the garden. The rooms are very nice, clean, and the service is good....
