We stayed at La Serena Inn for 2 nights while travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco. We were on a driving holiday and actually only made the booking on the same day as we were arriving. It was a very reasonable price and for that reason our expectations were not particularly high. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived....

This is a nice and quiet hotel. I stayed there for one night on my way to san francisco. The room was clean. However, the hall way was a little moldy. Breakfast area was on the top floor which is a little awkward. The price was reasonable for the area.

The La Serena Inn thanks you for your comments and we've notified Housekeeping regarding the hallway. Next time you stay try breakfast on the open terrace right outside the breakfast room, there's a beautiful view of the sea and the rock from there. Happy travels, La Serena Inn

Just finished my third stay at La Serena and, as I have the past two visits, enjoyed my stay immensely. My king room was clean, quiet and well-appointed. The bed was comfortable. The only change from last year was the installation of soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers in the shower. Very handy. The staff was helpful and friendly. I enjoyed...

The layout of this hotel worked well for our family. We were on the second floor in a corner room and the parking garage is underneath. So, we had less worries about the kids making noise on the floor than most other hotels we've stayed in. Hotel is only two small blocks from the Bay. We even walked to Morro...

This was a great location to stay at. No view of the beach or boardwalk area, but it was less than a 5/15 minute easy walk to the pier area. You could eat your continental breakfast in a comfortable room or out on the glassed in patio at this inn. This was a fun location to stay at. Lots of...

We were in a bind and this was the hotel that we got from Hotels by Me. They charged $280 for this hotel that was old and outdated. The hallways reminded me of a rehabilitation place where your aunt goes after a knee surgery. The beds were very soft and bouncy. The "breakfast" was breads and "cheerios" (as they advertised...

Great location in Morro Bay. Beautiful views from our room. Staff friendly and helpful. Brought us extra towels and pllows immediately. This is close enough to walk to the Street fair, downtown and the Embarcadero. Nice breakfast area. You can eat inside or outside.

La Serena Inn is conveniently situated just a few minutes walk from the harbour. We were very pleased with the standard off our room -a third floor room with a balcony.
