Reviewed 16 October 2014 via mobile

We stayed here one night for a friend's wedding. The rooms and building are beautiful. Staff was very friendly. Only issues were that the room was so hot we had a really hard time sleeping. Bed was very comfortable though. Also the vanity area wasn't real clean.

Stayed at Masterpiece Hotel and really enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly, room was clean and large, beds comfortable, complimentary continental breakfast, and wine and crackers and cheese in the afternoon. There was a spa and even washer and dryer in the building. Room was a little noisey in the mornings from traffic in the back of the building, only...

A very nice motel in Morro Bay on the main north south street, walking distance from the waterfront shops/restaurants. Nice people and the rooms all have good reproductions of art masterpieces and small terraces but, alas, no view. Good, basic breakfast. Less pricey than the ones at the water and definitely worth it.

On a whim we decided to stay the night in Morrow Bay. We booked it online after reading some great reviews. We were not disappointed. In fact, the staff was so welcoming and friendly! We were offered a complimentary glass of wine upon check-in and reminded to come down for a complimentary Continental Breakfast in the morning. The room was...

We have travelled extensively in the US and abroad and can honestly say that this is the most pleasant stay ever. It is evident that every item and service are intentionally designed for the traveller. They have not forgotten anything. The Washer/dryer, iron and ironing board were very clean, in top condition, and easy to use. We arrived after a...

Lake Forest, California
Reviewed 16 September 2014

Overall the hotel is clean, but small. Be careful of your room with a "balcony" if on the first floor, because it is basically a patio that faces the parking lot. This makes it noisy if you want to leave your sliding door open to let fresh air in. No AC so the room was a little stuffy after being...

I stayed there a couple months ago with my wife. We stayed in a Deluxe King room on a Friday, Saturday getaway. Since this was for our anniversary, we spent a bit more than we normally do for weekend getaways. If we return to Morro Bay, we'd pick a different place to stay because I feel it was overpriced. Yes,...

This hotel had basic but comfortable and clean facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were very quiet despite being on the main street. The bed was very comfortable. BAsic breakfast and there was also complimentary wine and chees in the evening. We didn't partake as we were very jet lagged! Excellent value for money
