At $87/night good value for money. Quiet, walking distance to the harbor for dining and shopping, and plenty of parking.

Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to the harbour, shops and restaurants. The breakfast was fun too, we really liked making our waffles. The staff were helpful, and all at a good price too. We would gladly stay here again if in the locale.

This mid-size motel is located about two blocks from all of the action in Morro Bay. The rates are great - king size bay view room for $104 a night (with a $15 off per night TripAdvisor coupon). My traveling companions had a double queen bed room for only $74. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with a microwave...

We choosed this hotel for a stop on our way from L.A. to San Francisco. We were delighted by everything. Our room was quite big, perfectly clean, with the nice old style furniture. Free parking. Helpful staff at the reception. Breakfast included in the price. In a room we found a booklet written by the hotel owner, who described how...

I've stayed at this hotel once a month for 3 years and was always given a great deal. But yesterday I had to cancel my stay due to a change of plans. I was told the hotel was at 72% occupancy and so I would be charged for the room. When I called this morning I was told that the...

I selected La Serena for a 2 night stay based on Trip Advisor reviews. My husband and I were not disappointed. Comfortable, clean and convenient location. We have been to Morro Bay before, so did not need a view of "The Rock". Our room was on the second floor and had a small balcony--great for having a glass of wine...

La Serena is a three floor hotel. Not all floors afford a view. We chose a room on the 3rd floor with a perfect window facing the rock. This is a must have if you are going to Morro Bay.

Reviewed 5 January 2012

La Serena Inn was a great place to stay during the recent New Year's Eve weekend. Good restaurants within walking distance was a bonus.It was disappointing that I had requested a temper-pedic bed and was not given a room with that type of bed. The mattress that we did sleep on was old and mushy and the sheets were old.

I just returned from a second three-night stay at La Serena. My stay there a year ago was such a success, that when I learned I'd be returning to the Morro Bay area I booked at La Serena without even considering other hotels there, and there are plenty to choose from. La Serena is small, with friendly staff, and large,...
