Lovely hotel/Inn with fabulous location and incredible personal service. Stayed for one night. Ate at restaurant next door for dinner. Would highly recommend both! Personal service, and lovely room. Also - walk to The Coffee Pot for breakfast and ask Gordon about his life story - incredible.

We stayed there one night on our way down the coast from San Francisco and wished we had stayed longer. I have NEVER experienced such wonderful customer service. The Anderson family were so accommodating and helpful, just great people. The location is perfect as well. We definitely plan to make another trip there.

Love love love this boutique Inn in the heart of Morro Bay. The welcome we received from Mollie and Rodger was the best since we arrived in USA. The room is spacious, comfortable, airy, clean and a pleasure to stay in. We had the disabled room as it was the last one available but the three rooms that look over... More

My husband and I at the last minute decided to drive up the coast to Morro Bay for Labor Day weekend. Judging from the reviews we were lucky enough to secure room 203. I was a bit skeptical of all the 5 star reviews thinking- how can this little inn be that great? Well, owners Jeff and Mollie, along with... More

My husband, myself and our three girls stayed at the Anderson Inn for two nights in August. The Anderson family were just charming - so warm and friendly, we couldn't have felt more welcome. Nancy even took our washing home to save me a trip to the local laundrette! The rooms were very nicely appointed with breathtaking views. The Inn... More

You want to stay in a fantastic room with an awesome view of Morro Bay? Then stay here and you won't be disappointed. We stayed in 203 and had a marvelous view of Morro Rock and the bay. The room is over the water and you can literally watch the sea life swim right by. The Jacuzzi tub and 3... More

We recently stayed in Morro Bay (2 adults, 3 daughters), and what a great time we had in this charming seaside resort. The Anderson Inn is run by the Anderson family, and you will find it hard to meet friendlier people anywhere in the world. Molly & Jeff could not have been nicer or more helpful, and their lovely luxury... More

My wife and youngest needed a long weekend before school started so we booked two nights at the Inn. Incredible place, right in the water, with our room looking directly into Morro Bay. The room was perfect, immaculately clean and well laid out. Although not overly large it fit the three of us (king bed and rollaway) just fine. The... More

I'll would quite happily give the owners of this Inn the keys to my house, my car and the education of my children. They are proud , interested and relaxed. They have a high status in a fishing town that struggles with its affluent neighborhood . This is an Inn NOT a hotel but the rooms are clean and have... More
