    They no longer allow pets, and it used to be the most pet friendly motel in the area, just FYI. It is always clean and dependable. Very good price and a very friendly staff. Close to everything in Morro Bay, CA.

    We only have one room that has a king bed and is a smoking room. It is in the 200's building. While you can see the ocean and Morro Rock from our property, we don't have any views from the rooms.
