“Great experience”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

We planned to stay one night on our way to Santa Barbara. Our original intent was to drive back without stopping, but while there, we decided to also stay a night on our way back. They were able to book a room for us, even though it was only a few days' notice, and in July during the busy tourist season. They even gave us a discount for our second stay. Upon our return, we decided we wanted to stay two nights instead of one. We couldn't keep the same room, but they arranged for another room for the second night, and offered to store our baggage until check-in time. The rooms are spacious, there is a private balcony, and all the rooms face the bay. Don't be put off by the one-star rating. It is very pleasant there, and the continental breakfast is more than adequate.

We stayed here on our motorcycle trip up Hwy 1. The young man that checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful..gave me three room keys so I could check out options and then made a great deal on a room staying on a Sunday night. we got a spacious balcony room with great view of Morro Bay and rock. parking was underneath building which made it nice to not have to cover the bike. Would definitely stay here again when we pass through!

We booked our rooms at the Embarcadero with the intent to stay in Morro Bay for a few days, we left the next day. Upon check in we were assigned room 308, but that got crossed out and we were assigned room 205. When we asked why it was changed we were given some answer about not staying for the weekend so we couldn't have the room. We went to the room and the only view we had was of the building across the street. We paid extra for a full bay room and wanted the view. When we called down, we were told we could stay at a room with a partical view on the 3rd floor for our stay at a reduced rate or we could stay in a full view room for one night and move the next night. I informed the clerk that we wanted a full bay view and she informed me that the pictures on all websites are not from the inside of the rooms because no room has a full bay view, some are just better than others. When I asked why we would have to move, the clerk told us that someone had called and requested that room so we need to be out for them the next day. Not anywhere on their website, or on a phone conversation were we instructed this was an option, but we were shafted when we got there. We stayed in the full view for the night and left. As we were sitting in our room I read the manuel that was left with policies and things to do - it wasn't mentioned that you could request a specific room, but they did state you could have a late check out if needed as long as you called the desk at least an hour before check out. This was a good option, or so I thought. We over slept the next morning and when I called at 9:30 to see if we could check out at noon, we were told they don't honor that policy even though it was in writing in the room. They were fully booked and we just needed to get out!
In a nut shell - the bed's are comfortable, views are only good from the 3rd floor, you can request a specific room if you call ahead - and now you know about it because I'm adding to my review, no late check out even though it states that in the room, the bathrooms are horrible - water pressure was hard, and the waffle bar was overrated.

Room Tip: Request a room on the third floor, pick the room you want and they will hold it for you.

We try to give everyone the room they desire but sometimes things prevent that from happening. Due to things out of our control a person might need to be moved. We apologize for this and try to make it right by offering an alternative to the situation. Most of the time this is fine but in your case it wasn't so we are sorry. We also honor late checkouts if at all possible. Hopefully you will return to give us another try. Again we are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay.

We stayed at the Embarcadero for 1 night while travelling up the coast. Having stayed in similar priced motels along the way we found this place to be quite luxurious for the money! We had a partial view with a nice little balcony. The room was very spacious and the bed pure comfort! Our only moan was that we could hear some noise from the room next door....mind you they went to bed pretty early so it wasn't a major problem. We really liked the "waffle bar" for breakfast - once we got the hang of the waffle maker.

Stayed two nights at Embarcadero Inn the end of June. Found place by accident, as were looking to stay at Estero Inn, which was booked up. Our friends and ourselves got two king size rooms with fireplaces on the second floor with views of the bay. The Inn is across the street from the bay, and some of the rooms look onto quite a junky yard, but you can still see the bay. The front desk staff were very friendly, and gave us a good rate on the rooms. The rooms were a bit dated but very clean and had some nice touches - popcorn for the microwave and movies to borrow, also real coffee mugs. We asked for wine glasses and the front desk was very accommodating. We found the room quiet, in fact all of Morro Bay seemed very quiet. The breakfast was standard, but good, in a nice area on the third floor overlooking the bay. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Morro Bay
