Travel Blogs from Morro Bay
Our last day in LA, so this morning we decide to try the buffet breakfast at our hotel, which is actually quite good, and we wish we had it on the other days too! We pack our things into the car again, then start heading West towards the ocean, driving along Hollywood Boulevard one last time.
We're not exactly sure what road we want to …
Headed out of Santa Monica on route 1 and towards Malibu, stopped at Leo Carrillo Beach as it has been used for beach scenes in lots of movies including 50 first dates and Grease. We weren't particularly impressed but again I guess if the sun had been shining it would of looked different. Through Ventura and Santa Barbara then decided to head …
... roads running beside the Kern River. Jim knew this road well and I am sure our steady pace held him up a little. With the last of the light we parked and secured the bikes then walked down a narrow track to some hastily built ponds where hot mineral springs were captured and cooled. There were a few others already present, but there was enough room in the pools for everyone. After a long day in the saddle the hot mineral rich water was ...
... and barking around the bay the sun is shining. A quick walk around the bay and we're ready to eat in our only booked restaurant if the trip, the number one seafood place in the town and again these West Coast reviewers were right again. Naked Fish, Mexican prawns, Halibut and Shrimp cooked in the acid of lime juice just a sample of what we had. The main draw though the Scallops which ...
... in my opinion. After crossing the Bixby Bridge, which was built in 1932 to replace a dangerous route that was used up until that time. It is a wonderful bridge and having the scenic turnout just before crossing it, gave us the opportunity to take some photos before continuing. We went through Big Sur, which is a couple of areas where there are restaurants, camping grounds, and little stores. This is the inspiration for songs, such as Perhaps Love, and other ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embarcadero Inn Morro Bay
We'd definitely come back!
What a delightful place and great location. We had a fabulous view of the rock from our balcony. The staff was more than helpful and we received a nice note and a discount offer a few days after we got home.
It is the best. But why am I sharing this?
The Embarcadero Inn is a wonderful place to stay for any occasion or none at all. We have ran away for a quick romantic weekend and for longer family vacations. Over the years we have grow to depend on "Morro Bay" for our fun/relaxation destination and the staff at the Embarcardero Inn have always been there to ensure that we had a wonderful stay. Of coarse their excellence and the hotels increased popularity has made it necessary to plan further in advance because now everyone wants to stay at The Embarcadero Inn!
One of the Best Finds in California
We stayed at the Embarcadero in August of 2003. The hotel is excellent!
The rooms were large and very clean. We had a great deck and a wonderful view of the rock. We would definately stay here again.
THE place to stay in Morro Bay
What a pleasant surprise! The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was large, clean and well appointed. Many thoughtful little ammenities, such as paper towels in the rooms, real glasses and coffee mugs (not your standard Best Western plastic) and windshield washing stations in the parking garage.
This is what life is all about!
My husband and I have stayed at this hotel for the last 15+ years for the December boat parade. It is one of our favorites. The staff is wonderful. The view is fantastic and the extras, fireplace, video players, refrigerators, microwave and complimentary popcorn are an added touch. Although the boat parade weekend is usually sold out because of us regulars, I would suggest anytime in the winter months for your visit.
Great stay, great view
This is a great place for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Tons of stuff to see at Morro Bay's bird festival, and the Inn has a nice nature library with local guide books, a spotting scope for viewing the bay, and they even loan binoculars to the guests! We'll definitely be back!
Nice little spot
We stayed here one night on our trip up the coast. The view of Morro Bay and the rock is great from the third floor. The hotel itself is homey and comfortable. Extra touches such as extra coffee packets, a video lending library, and a gas fireplace in the room make for a pleasant stay.
Embarcadero Inn - Best View, Best Service!
I loved my room with a view! I would wake up in the morning, pour a cup of coffee and sit on my balcony and watch sea otters play in the bay. Very friendly and helpful staff made me feel at home. I'll be back often!
Great view of the rock!
5 star if you stay on the third floor and the resident crane isnt docked out front blocking the view! Great continental breakfasts and USA TODAY. 2 romantic hidden spas.Fireplaces w/balcony. Dont miss the sauteed surf clams down at THE Galley restraunt they are to die for!
Very nice hotel
This hotel is very nice. So nice I've stayed there twice! The rooms are very clean. One of the best hotel rooms I've stayed in. I love the electric fireplace, it made the room homey. The hotel is right on the embarcadero so you have a great view of the bay and the rock, I personally like the sound of the sea birds too. The staff was also very friendly and accomodating. The only draw back is that is that the price is a little on the steep side but it is worth it. If you have the money splurge on this hotel!
