“Seaside haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

This hotel is in a gorgeous setting right across from the beach with visiting sea lions and rock pools full of crabs. The hotel staff are friendly and informative, the breakfast truly extensive and the pool area a nice retreat. Our room was well furnished and had everything we could need. We would love to have stayed longer but were on a road trip and this was a stopover on the start of highway one. A real fine.

Room Tip: We were offered rooms with a small terrace and there are rooms which face the front and therefore ge...

I was a little skeptical and what a surprise. I stayed only one night but wish that we stayed longer. The view from the hotel is beautiful and the area very quiet and relaxing. The front desk very helpful and nice.

Due to a major mess-up by the Best Western in Morrow Bay, we need to find 4 rooms fast! A friend worked with Justin and he made sure we got the rooms we needed for the night. He was very courteous, friendly and efficient. He made our stay overwhelmingly perfect.

I stayed three days at this lovely location. The room was a suite with gas fireplace and king bed, with a jucuzzi bath. Well laid out and with lovely furnishings done in a soft golden yellow. this complimented the often foggy or overcast coastline. It is situated right on Moonstone Beach Dr right across from one of the boardwalk entrances where you can stroll down and watch the waves and the harbor seals on the rocks below. Each room had a small but adequate patio with seating. Wonderful coastal location for a reasonable price which includes a full breakfast, pool, and hottub. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: for a little more, the rooms in front are suites with gas fireplace and look out at ocean. try one...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

Spent three days with my husband and friends in two separate rooms here a week or so ago. The location is fantastic right on Moonstone Beach and the staff were very accommodating. Our friend's room was at the front of the hotel and had a lovely outdoor patio facing the ocean. Ours was at the back with a lovely view of a cyclone fence and Hwy 1 behind it (it would have been nice to see some effort at planting plants and trees or something to make the view a bit less depressing). There was a relatively good breakfast (including hot items - eggs and sausage, waffles, etc.) provided each morning in a rather crowded, but congenial, breakfast room included in the rates. The rooms themselves felt somewhat dated, especially the bedding and bedspreads and not as high quality as we expected for the price (which was pretty hefty - even for that location). Considering the romantic location (and fireplaces in rooms), and proximity to great Paso wineries, it would also have been nice to have real wine glasses in the rooms. Our room at the back also had a strong chemical/fruity odor which made me wonder if someone had smoked there and it had been "treated" to rectify the situation. We both felt (our friends and us) that the value was not as good as at other properties we have stayed at on Moonstone in the past - but that could be changed with an upgrade of the rooms or a reduction in rates. The staff were wonderful and responsive, the rooms were clean, and we did enjoy our time there. We will probably look for a better value, however, next time.
