... clothing shop (Tienda) where Pauline renewed her wardrobe. As well as the busy and picturesque shopping area downtown, Santa Barbara has beach front lined with a park, and a harbour tucked into the corner. Definitely a place to come back to, a hotel near the harbour would have been nice but at $250 per night for motel style accommodation and valet parking for the restaurants, make sure you save up ...

... grass galore and evidence of massive land slides and road washouts. We went through tunnels and over narrow bridges that were hundreds of feet above the sea. We also drove on roadways that hugged the cliffside and contained hairpin turns.
I am glad we did it but I’m not anxious to do it again soon.

More eggs and waffles for breakfast, then off to Monterey Aquarium due to grey day, by the time we got to Monterey it's was absolutely pouring down so aquarium was packed full of people trying to avoid rain Fantastic experience none the less, what a great place, massive tanks, exhibitions about jelly fish, sea horses, open oceans and sea birds etc - truly awesome particularly the sea otters Then after ...
... but had mixed feelings about visiting it. However, it was worthwhile. After Randolph Hearst died the family bequeatheed it to the government who now manage it and the tour that we went on was excellent. Not a long tour but you get plenty of background and history to the man and the property and see a number of downstairs rooms of the main house - it has a total ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Morro Bay
Rooms are very small, and no dressers! Showers not sufficiently cleaned daily. No wash cloths, insufficient number of towes for both shower and hot tub. Hot tub, what a joke, little rubber thing. Room advertised as comfortable for 4 persons, 2 double beds makes comfort impossible.
Front desk admitted not family friendly. Terrible selection on the resturant menu, only 5 or 6 items, not children friendly! Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated for breakfast. Not because of table availablity, only two servers working. Waiter said this is typical.
Food arrived cold and not to our specifications. Walls are thin, herd of elephants above our room. We will never stay there again, and strongly urge other to stay away! accomodations.
Ya right, there is now way those above ratings are true
Well, I stayed at the inn back in July. The place is horrible. I did write a review before, but I see it is now gone. Just to worn you people , it is a bad place to stay. I see the ratings above are great, so that is why I dont want other people to get fooled like I did. The website is a fake. It has small rooms, carpet is filthy, and the hot tubs (the rubber blow up ones, what a joke) are on a small balcony with no privacy. Walls are so thin, might as well live with your neighbors.
Stay at the Best Western or somewhere else. Dont get fooled like my family did
Loved the Inn
Recently stayed at the Inn and Loved it! The views from the balcony while sitting in the hot tub were amazing. We had a fabulous dinner in the Orchid restaurant follwed by after dinner drinks in the Bay Club Lounge while listening to a Jaxx Trio. Morro Bay itself is just a great escape & so much less pricey than big touristy cities. We definitely will be returning. Thumbs up!
Fabulous weekend getaway!
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of getting out of the rat race of L.A.and spending the weekend on the Central Coast. We stumbled upon this quaint hotel by accident! We had a drink @ the Inn's beautiful bar and enjoyed a breath taking sunset! Our server suggested that we stay at the Inn overnight. We were fortunate enough to get a room that faced the bay, had a hot-tub on the balcony and a fireplace! I have to say I have never slept in a more comfortable bed then the featherbeds that the Inn has, nor had such incredible service! The room was extremely well maintained and impeccably clean. I have heard and read mixed reviews on this property but must say that I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a weekend get away.
Really depends on the room
I just recently spent 3 nights at the Inn at Morro bay in 3 different rooms, I had been told I would have a room with a king size bed but when got there this wasn't available. Instead my husband and I got a Queen room - it was pretty bad, very small, paint peeling off in the shower and the shower handle was broken. I asked for a change of rooms the next night , the only thing available was a double with a view - we took it! This room was much nicer and larger, the next night they finally gave us the king room with a view, also very nice. It seemed that there was a lot of miscommunication and lack of communication among staff at the hotel. I also got a massage which was wonderful!!! I would only stay in the hotel again if I had a double or a king room - the queen rooms are dumps.
Loved our stay.
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful relaxing time on our stay at Inn of Morro Bay. The hotel was clean and lovely and our room was wonderful. The lanscaping and scenery are beautiful. Couldn't find too much wrong. I hope we are able to go again.
Don't stay at the Inn at Morro Bay
The Inn was a major disappointment. I have to give a thumbs up to their marketing department for an excellent website and fooling us into believing this was a top of the line resort. I cannot believe it was included in the "2003 Best Accommodations of the Central Coast". This place is a dive! For starters the carpet was filthy, the glass sliding door was rusted and difficult to open, there was a strange odor in the room and the shower had mold in it not to mention the paint was peeling off the tiles they had painted! I do a lot of traveling for business and you're better off staying at a Courtyard by Marriott. It's cheaper and cleaner. We will NEVER stay there again and a letter is going to the General Manager regarding our stay.
Well, this should not take long. The hotel was like paying for The Hilton and staying in Motel Six. Oh, their internet site makes the place look wonderful, however it is a joke. The rooms are very small and unattractive. The walls are so thin your neighbors might as well just stay in the room with you. The towel rack is falling off the wall, the floors were rotten, the hot tub was dirty, the sink faucet sprayed everywhere, the carpet was filthy, etc..etc. I feel like I have been robbed. A word of advice , stay at the Best Western , it is much nicer.
Inn nice, town not so?
This is a nice hotel, with decent size rooms. We only had a queen room but for one night it is sufficiant. The king rooms had a spa on their balcony, but there wasn't much room for anything else. There was a wedding reception the night we stayed so it was a bit noisy The bar was nice and the restaurant looked nice but a little expensive. The major disappointment was the town, very touristy and the power plant at the end of the beach really spoilt the views to the rock. San Louis Opisbo would have been a much better choice for a one night stay
Glamorous website and reputation. Very average reality. Stayed in oceanview with "spa" which was an above-deck hottub on the small deck. Room needs updating and freshening. Furniture mismatched and tired. Beds adequately comfortable, bathrooms very small. Has gas fireplace as heater. Next to heron/egret preserve, which was interesting, and right on estuary of Bay.
