Reviewed 30 May 2012

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 and small refrigerator. Two sinks (one just outside the bathroom). Included is a full continental breakfast with waffles and eggs and late afternoon sparkling cider and snacks. A great bargain!

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 he felt in love with this hotel and Morro Bay. He recommended bird watching, as this area is famous for this activity.

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 hotel was at 99% occupancy and since my room wasn't rented I would be charged. I understand that 24 hour cancelation policy is standard. You'd think that after 3 years of my business some exceptions would be made!

Reviewed 31 March 2012

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 and enjoying the south facing view, which was okay, but nothing spectacular. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was standard, but view from the Garden room was great. All in all, a wonderful stay in Morro Bay!
