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 …
We had another great day driving, up the 101 Pacific Coast Hwy. Fortunately there was quite a bit of freeway, so didn't have to do too much country driving. We passed a lot of strawberry farms and citrus/avocado/ grapes as well as small crops like broccoli,peas,corn and tomatoes. They are in the middle of a drought so the hills were dry and mostly brown. The scenery was interesting, ...
... rises out of the sea rather magnificently. Basically Morro Bay was a bit of a chill out for us we were a 15 min walk to town so used the opportunity to not drive (seriously Americans drive EVERYWHERE) and explore this cute little town. It's been called the last remaining slice of old California and I can see why. It's what we wanted from Pismo but it didn't deliver. Endless fresh seafood restaurants, whale watching tours, salt water taffy shops and little arty ...
... and San Simeon. It was a scary drive for Jonathan, but the coast was beautiful. We drove in to SLO and went to 'The Apple Farm'. It was done up in the height of 80's floral a la early Martha Stewart. The people were so friendly that it was kinda creepy. Well, we were only there for one night, so we went into town to look around and have dinner. The last time J&I were there it was a bohemian ...
Following a fun time in Solvang, we headed up the 101 towards San Luis Obispo. After a mandatory stop at Starbucks (cheaper than Beijing!) we stopped to select a place to stay for the evening. The Morro Bay Web Site said it was in walk up mode but when we ...

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!
