Can't complain about anything in special - good location and a cheap price compared with all the outrageous prices in CA during this time of the year. Walking distance from the main places. The room was big and clean even though there was a strange smell inside. You have wifi signal but that doesn't mean you have internet - at...

We were travelling down from San Fran to LA so aimed for couple nights stay half way down coast. Morro Bay was cheapest I could find on the coast. It has what you need for night or two, shower works bed has clean sheets etc. Didn't partake in the breakfast though. But tip Dorns around the corner is amazing. If...

Quaint little motel. Not a chain motel but clean, and well kept. All for about 1/2 the daily rate of the chain motels on the same street. Note-no pool, no a/c and no fancy breakfast. But you are 2 blocks from the waterfront. There is a nice breeze, and just a short walk from the beach. They have basic Danish...

I have stayed at the Fireside Inn a few times now, and each time I am given a great, clean, modernized room for a very good price. The location of the hotel is perfect, just a block away from the Embarcadero. I can walk there and not need to find parking on the Embarcadero. The owners are always very welcoming...

We were in San Luis Obispo for the weekend. Stayed in another hotel in SLO on Friday night and wanted to stay in Morro Bay on Saturday night. We only needed the room for one night. I read the reviews and thought I'd take a chance...it was a mistake.....$200 down the drain. We were allowed early check in, at 1PM,...

Our rooms were charming with fireplace and vaulted ceilings. Freshly painted and clean. Walking distance to many resturants and a laundery mat. Good shower. Working refrigerator. Only one coffee pod for morning coffee, but near coffee shops. Fan in bathroom weak. Great access to plugs for electronic devices. Motion sensors on lighting. Windows open easily for fresh air.

It was really nice & clean. Family owned and operated. Convenient location. Newly remodeled. Not your typical hotel but it fits right in with the small towns theme. Try it out. The breakfast isn't a lot to choses from but given the situational stay its great. (Vacation not "wake & and need a convenient quick departure.")

Room 211 is very large, with plenty of seating and two queen beds. Very comfortable. Gas fireplace we won't use. View of the Rock. Very clean. Checked in efficiently, being given this big room at a very reasonable rate through bookings.com. Microwave, coffeemaker and frig. High score is for value and comfort. Decor pleasant.

We spent one night here on our journey up the coast. The price was right for the night and was significantly less than other local competitors. Like the other motels in the area seem, this place is old and nothing fancy. I'm a big believer in taking things for what they are. Recognize you are not staying in the Four...
