“Simply Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

This wonderful inn is a gem! The innkeepers are so helpful and genuinely nice. The room was perfect - great bed, exquisite linens, lighting perfect, shower terrific, vaulted ceilings, reading lamps on both sides of the bed, plenty of places to put things, refrigerator, robes, QUIET. Our room (208) was on the end, so only one shared wall. It has a nice view of Morro Rock and the small street. If you can, the rooms overlooking the water would be great to book, but all 8 are fine. Cute town, too!

Room Tip: Roooms over the water are great, but all 8 are lovely.

I spent only one night here which was not enough. the room was thoughtfully appointed and boasted everything you could possibly want, including a fireplace. My balcony (over the water) had spectacular views of the Rock, the sea birds flying past, the sea lions. the wecome from Geoff and Molly (brother and sister, this is a family hotel) was so warm and friendly. comfortable bed, fabulous spa bath, I will definitely be coming back here! LOVELY

Room Tip: splurge on an over the water room it is worth it for that fantastic view

I read a review about the Anderson Inn that said 'my wife cried when we had to leave' and I now understand what the reviewer meant. We stayed there for 2 nights on our trip down the coast to Los Angeles and we wished we had stayed longer. The room was fantastic - beautifully clean with a view over the bay to Morro Rock. The walk in shower and jacuzzi bath were fantastic - I couldn't get my son out! The view across the bay is fantastic with seal lions, sea otters and pelicans fishing in the water below our balcony. The best thing about the Anderson Inn though are the family who own it. They are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble and they treated my son like one of their own. I cannot rate this inn highly enough! We are definitely coming back.

Room Tip: The premium views have balconies over the water and are worth the extra money ii less you are a ligh...

We were welcomed to the Anderson Inn by Molly, Geoff and Roger and they were the best hosts of our whole stay in America.
The Anderson Inn came highly recommended by another couple from our home city who also travelled the Pacific coast highway as part of their honeymoon.
We really did feel like part of a big family when Molly greeted us.Her enthusiasm for the area and their business is without bounds and it is really infectious.
Our room was exceptionally clean with two terraces for our sole use. The bathroom was huge with a spa like shower with multiple jets. The towels were white and fluffy and the range of bath products were quality.
Molly, Geoff and Roger really know their area and are full of tips for places to visit.
We ate both nights in the fabulous restaurant under the Anderson inn, the Galley. Top class seafood cooked simply and to perfection so you can really appreciate the depth of flavours. The staff were very friendly and made us feel special. We hadn't planned to eat here both nights but the setting is beautiful and the menu so tempting we could not go just once.
Try Frankie and Lola's for a great breakfast menu.
The Anderson Inn is most definetly worth a visit, we can't wait to return.

This wonderful hotel lives up to the reviews with the best location on the bay surrounded by restaurants and shops. The owners are the nicest people in the world and when we told Mollie that we enjoyed seeing wildlife she told us where we could see a peregrine falcon on Morro rock, a sea otter holding a baby in Morro Bay, and the elephant seals on the way to Big Sur. We probably would have missed seeing all three if not for Mollie!

If you have a chance, spend a few extra bucks for a waterfront room. We stayed in the "queen south, over the water" which was room #203. I attached some photos so you could see what a great room it was with a walk in shower, gas fireplace, and a terrific view. This is a hotel that you plan your trip around!

Room Tip: don't forget that there's a switch on the wall for a night light in the bathroom. and leave...
