“A perfect vacation spot!”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

We stayed here over Thanksgiving break for two nights. The hotel was not what I expected at all! It was so quaint, very clean, it looked brand new! The staff was helpful and very welcoming. They offer cookies and coffee or tea/hot chocolate in the lobby. We had room 206 and had two beds, fireplace, and balcony. The view from the balcony was great! Breakfast is complimentary: hard boiled eggs, assorted bagels, muffins, bread, cinnamon rolls (DELICIOUS), waffle station, yogurt, cereal, coffee and juice. If you are looking for eggs and bacon - you'll have to go out. But the waffles were amazing (malted batter)! I am planning on a repeat stay here soon! One nice touch -- the parking structure had window washing squeegees for those of us who had bug splattered windows. :)

Room Tip: The higher floor would be a little better view, but all seem great. If you are planning a trip in t...

Wanting a little weekend vacation in Morro Bay, my wife and I scoured the Internet for a reasonable room a few days before our planned arrival. Being familiar with Morro Bay and a rainy weekend forecast, we wanted a place very near the Embarcadero so we would have a short walk to shop and eat.

Registration was smooth and with our keys in hand, we took the elevator up a single floor and entered our room. The room smelled a bit musty and probably needs to be aired out more. Our late booking nabbed us one of the handicap equiped rooms so I cannot tell if all rooms would have a similar bathroom layout as ours; it was roomy. The bedroom was a standard size encountered in hundreds of motels.

Sleep comfort of the bed was average with no noise from our next door neighbours or the street. The floor, however, was like a subwoofer applifying the steps above. I would highly recommend a 3rd floor (top level) room if you like to sleep late in the morning. The view should also be superior from the upper level.

A rainy weekend in store, we were perfectly setup with a DVD player and flat screeen TV in the room. There is a selection of videos at the front desk but we brought our own. We did not bring popcorn but a bag was thoughtfully left in the microwave for us each day. A mini-fridge for perishable snacks and a gas fireplace made for an ideal way to spend a rainy night.

Room Tip: Ask for a 3rd floor room

We went from LA (pop 10 million) to Morro Bay(pop 10thousand) and stayed 5 nights at this hotel. We really enjoyed the encluded breakfast at the Bird Feeder, the free parking,and the hot tub! Our room was large, with a restricted view of the bay, however we could see enough to enjoy the sunsets. We liked the fact that the front desk had movies as the theatre in the town was closed at the time we were there. It was a great stay in a truly lovely place.

First and foremost the blame goes to Hotels.Com for screwing up my
Reservation, but the Embarcadero Inn could have made it cool. We recently planned a trip from San Diego to Santa Barbara, Morro Bay then San Francisco and we were supposed to stay a night in Morro Bay at the Barcadero Inn. When I arrived they were nice, but not overly welcoming. Long story short I requested a room with 2 double beds because I had 4 people with my. Once we got all of our stuff checked in I got a call from a very rude lady demandin that I come down and pay an extra $20 per person because my reservation was for 1. First off, Mistake by Hotels.com! Do you think that I would pay $200 per night to stay in such a dump?? If she would have been more polite about it I would have stayed, but no. We did not feel welcome so guess what. Embarcadero is going to be getting a charge back for our stay. When we tried to leave they said we would not get a refund etc. Etc. American Express disagreed and suspended the charge. Beware of staying at this hotel! It has a bad smell and the front desk lady is not very nice.

We at the Embarcadero Inn aim to try and please everyone no matter what circumstances you might have. We offered to simply charge you for the additional 2 out of the 3 additional people you had in room giving you a break since you were not aware you booked one person to arrive. We then offered to let you out of reservation so you could resolve your issue with Hotels.com. Hopefully you were able to work out the problems with them. On line reservations can be tricky and we are sorry it didn't work out for you. The Manager
