When my wife said we'd be on the water, I didn't know she meant if literally. If you want an unobstructed view of the bay and the amazing Morro Rock, this is a great place. Check in was a bit clunky but I think the young lady was new or filling in. The staff was great during our stay and...

Booked this a while ago and made sure we had a harbour view of the rock. Lovely to look out at that as we drift off to sleep. Room is a good size and well maintained. It is clean and has all that you need. Staff were very welcoming and took us to our room, taking time to explain things...

You can't get more oceanfront than this. Drop dead gorgeous rooms with fireplace. Top floor has charming small balconies. I would call this a boutique hotel. The manager is very enthusiastic and will show you the premiere rooms if not occupied. Those rooms are upstairs.

Found this hotel through TripAdvisor and loved it. There aren't many rooms but they are all super. Free parking. Free breakfast. The entire place is not big, but sits right on the harbor and is immaculate. Clean. Great view of the harbor. Great location. You won't be disappointed. The hostess was SO nice.

We have been to Morro By many times but until now have never found a place we really liked. This place is a real gem and I kinda want to keep it secret because there are only 8 rooms and 2 are family rooms with 2 beds and space for a full family which is not us. The people that...

I enjoyed staying here and we enjoy Morro Bay. A good view for the ocean from the room. Nice and attentive staff. This is kind of an out of the beaten path area but that's the charm of it. Character is not in short supply.

We stayed here for Christmas and enjoyed the cozy feeling and the hospitality of the owners. The inn is located directly at the water's edge and has a magnificent view from the front and north side towards Morro Rock. We found it much more relaxing than larger establishments.

Stayed for a Getaway weekend. Nice Inn in central location on the water with walking distance to all local restaurants and attractions. Nicely appointed rooms with fire places. Quiet with water views. No bar/restaurant or 24/7 front desk service but there is plenty nearby.

We had booked a different hotel for the week and had to leave after one night. It was so noisy. We walked downtown and checked out several hotels and it seemed The Estero Inn might work. It is right on the bay and after seeing the spacious rooms and the great views and how friendly Kari, the manager was, we...
