My family stayed at the Inn on the occasion of my wife's 50th and daughter's 21st birthdays. It was a special occasion matched by the extra special treatment we received at the Inn. The location is great, the rooms are first rate with everything you need and we can only repeat the comment of "seagullinn" about Molly, kindness personified. Perfectly...

My husband and I stayed here one night as part of an anniversary trip last fall. We first read about the Inn here on Trip Advisor. We really enjoyed it! Our room was beautiful and spotless and had a very nice view of the bay and Morro Rock. I agree with many of the other reviewers who said that the...

The Anderson Inn is right on the water in Morro Bay, perfect location. Our room was first-rate, simply but beautifully decorated, spotless, with every amenity you could want. But the thing that set it apart was the hospitality and graciousness of the hosts. Molly is a beautiful, charming woman, who who radiates kindness and welcome, and who runs the Inn...

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night on our way down to Los Olivos. I could have stayed for several days. We booked sort of last minute and were given a wonderful room with some view of the ocean and Morro rock as well as another deck overlooking the street in front. There are only eight rooms at the inn....

Even though we stayed at the Anderson Inn for one night, we should have stayed longer. Upon our arrival at night, the owner greeted us with smiles and open arms. Showed us around the hotel. Even asked if we wanted cream for our coffee in the morning and brought us cream. He reviewed all the details of the room and...

My husband & I visited Morro Bay before heading on to our primary destination, Sequoia National Park, where we were meeting our son and his fiance for the weekend. We arrived on Thursday, late afternoon, and after venturing out to the famous Rock and a quick drive along the waterfront, we inquired about a room at the Anderson Inn. Mollie...

We arrived after an eight hour car journey. We found the Inn easily as the town is small and easy to get around. We were greeted by Jeff Anderson, one of the family members running this small hotel. He was very friendly and of course has great local knowledge. He booked us into a restaurant for our evening meal and...

This is a small (8 rooms) hotel, which is extremely well run by its owners Molly Anderson and her brothers. The Andersons must be among the best innkeepers anywhere; they are extremely friendly, helpful, and just plain nice. During my stay everything was perfect, from check in to check out. The room was large, very clean, with more amenities than...

We were greeted with the owners the moment we walked in... They are so friendly and told us how the property was run and how they just renovated. It's owned by 2 brother and 1 sister and they manage the property very well. There's nothing much to do in Morro Bay so we actually only stayed there for 1 night...
