The woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet and a nice size. There is also a spa and gym you can use at one of their partner hotels down the street. It was very close to Morro Rock which was nice.

Planned 7 weeks ahead so as to get the suite we wanted that had 2 balconies. Very disappointed with the suite as it needs attention. The much-advertised view of the rock from the window and balcony was at least two-thirds obstructed by a palm tree that was in desperate need of trimming. The sliding door on the other balcony was...

This hotel is in a great location and it has the basic things. No frills AND uncomfortable beds!!! Breakfast had no smart choices except hard boiled eggs. Peanut butter was poor quality; bread was only Wonder like bread. Would not repeat this. But it is two blocks from the Bay!

Our one night stay was fine. Room was clean and well equipped, staff was friendly, a well kept place overall. Quiet neighborhood just a short walk from the waterfront. The continental breakfast was good. Only issue for me was an overly soft mattress. Would stay here again.......

We've stayed here several times. The Front Desk staff are friendly, and professional. Always have a smile for you. The rooms as a general rule are clean and comfortable. This trip I was a bit disappointed that the 2 occasional chairs in the large guest room were really dirty. Both had multiple different colored stains, and one had what looked...

When we arrived at La Serena Inn, the clerk at the desk was friendly and knowledgeable. We found a clean and comfortable room, and enjoyed the partial view of the ocean from our balcony. Breakfast was a disappointment, though, as the regular coffee had run out, and the choices of muffins and danish items was depleted. There was no one...

The rooms were quiet, beds were pretty good, they had a nice basic breakfast, and the staff was pleasant. They are within walking distance of restaurants and the beach. Seemed like a nice place to stay.

Firstly, La Serena was decorated so tastefully for the season. The artwork is beautiful and the rooms were spacious, immaculate, and stylish. This hotel has wonderful views, friendly, welcoming staff and a super location. Our second floor room had a perfect Morro Rock view. The hotel manager, Jill, gave wonderful directions for an exceptional sunset view and amazing restaurant choices....
