A pleasant, basic hotel

Feb 14th, 2020

We spent one night here. It was a pleasant hotel with an excellent location near the centre and the sea. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent, especially the girl who was working the late afternoon - early evening shift (I'm sorry I don't remember your name!). We needed to use the laundry but we were confused about how to operate it as it asked for 50c coins?! She helped us figure it out so we were able to do our laundry, but when we wanted to use the dryer, the fuse blew in the laundry room! She let us use the dryer in the housekeeping room so we could dry our clothes. Thanks again for all your help. The room itself is large, nicely decorated and clean, although it is a little tired. The hotel was clearly designed with a lot of love and care and you can find literature in the room explaining how the owners bought the hotel and how the lovingly created this place, which makes it even more shocking that there were 3 huge rips in our net curtain! I had actually seen this in one of the reviews I'd read before booking so it didn't surprise me but why leave it like that, especially when it was mentioned in previous reviews?? I am not sure if more than one room has this rip in the curtain or if we got that specific room by coincidence but for something that is so easy and cheap to fix, why they would leave it like that is very hard to understand.

Expensive but nice

Jan 21st, 2020

Nice from the front. Nice, roomy lobby with friendly staff. All rooms are interior which is nice. Room was clean and roomy. Breakfast included but we didn't get a chance to try it as it didn't open until 7:30am. However, they did make a sack breakfast for us (boiled egg, fruit, yogurt) which was nice. The room had a microwave, coffee maker, and mini fridge. Price seemed a little steep for what it is. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Rooms are different

Jan 7th, 2020

We were there with friends to see a concert. When we got there, we found out we could upgrade to a suite for just a few dollars more. The suite wasn't worth it. To the hotel's credit, it was an upgrade in their opinion, just not my preference. The mattress was memory foam (we don't like memory foam) and the bed had an elaborate headboard and footboard. We tend to sleep with our feet hanging off and the footboard would be in the way. The room we ended up with had an adjoining room. We could hear our neighbors who had a small child. They checked out, but we could hear our new neighbors. This room had a footboard, but it wasn't attached to the bed, rather, bolted to the floor. Future stays at this hotel will request a room that is not adjoining, not memory foam and no footboard. You can see the bay from a 2nd floor room, but the view is mostly of the other buildings between you and the bay. The breakfast consists of yogurt, cereal, hard boiled eggs, grocery store pastries, waffle batter (make your own) and some fruit, with tea, coffee and hot cocoa mix. We made reservations at Dorn's for a much better breakfast. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Beautiful break

Dec 20th, 2019

Drove to Morro Bay for a break from Central Valley. Our favorite hotel, La Serena, had remarkable prices for ocean view room. Clean, quiet, comfortable room, centrally located, walking distance to down town Morro Bay. Some construction going on at hotel, but still quiet. Breakfast is nice with coffee, sweet rolls, fruit, juice and waffles. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Lumpy Mattresses and no Soaps

Nov 20th, 2019

This is a very budget friendly clean hotel, sadly outdated decor and horrible mattress in the family size room we were given. The soap, shampoo containers in the shower were empty. The breakfast wasn't minimalist, but it wasn't healthy or appealing either. Our 'ocean view' was completely blocked by an overgrown palm. The self service laundry had been 'out of order' for an extended time. Very disappointing. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
