The hotel as a whole and our room were spacious, clean, and welcoming, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bed I slept in could've used a new mattress (it was high in the center and sloped downwards towards the sides); however, my niece (who stayed with me) said her bed wasn't bad. I slept in the bed next to the balcony so maybe it gets used more often. The hotel had a grab 'n go breakfast bag which was a nice surprise. The code on my lockbox for my room key (we had a late arrival time) was incorrect, but one call to the kind night manager sorted it out. The pros far outweigh the cons--I plan to stay here again.

Hi Susan, Thank you for staying with us! I am sorry to hear about your mattress, I'll see if I can do some research and figure our which room you were in and mark the bed for replacement. Hope to see you again!

We had a room with 2 queen beds. One was to soft and bowed in the middle, the other was like sleeping on a wood floor. We had to call the front desk around 9:30 at night to complain about banging noises from the floor above. We were told they had a group function that was ending at 10:00. However it went on all night long. Needless to say we did not get much rest. Would not recommend this hotel and will never stay here again.

Great location, clean, double sinks were a plus! Stayed one night during a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Half way point. Would stay again!

Honestly is not this hotels policy

Pros: Close walk to town
Cons: Hotel honestly
Location: The beach and Morro Rock was they best area to relax.
The place could use a little up dating. The beds are very firm but the pillows are little small throw pillows. Two make one. The free breakfast is in line with the hotel, could use an update. Worst of all, we left a bracelet, we left it in plain sight and just forgot to pick it up. When we discovered the error several hours later, we call the hotel, it was late afternoon and reported it issue to the front desk clerk, who stated they " had just come on and would check and call me back." I did not receive any call and had to called again the next morning. I went over the same story with the day person who also said they would check and call me back. No call back. Seems to me that the housecleaning staff would have found it when they cleaned the room. I have to believe they cleaned the room and changed the sheets. At least one would hope.

We apologize that we have been unable to find your wife's bracelet. The front desk staff have it logged so they will be aware to call you if and when it is found. Our hotel prides itself on the honesty of our housekeepers.They find everything from diamond earrings to ipads and our front desk staff is trained to call the guest right away to let them know. Again we apologize that your item has not been found but we will follow through if it is. Regards, la Serena Inn

Nice to find a home base in Morro Bay.

Pros: Friendly, informative front desk staff on duty. Walking distance to the Embarcadero & Main Street.
Cons: Nothing comes to mind.
Location: Deli right out the back door, newspaper, etc. Location provides quick walk to shops and restaurants. Tempted to take the 45 min. Bay Cruise $10.
From the time we arrived until departure, we kept discouvering amenities that made our stay exceptional. Just walking down the hallways with tasteful Audobon prints. Liked the conscientious attention to details: two vanities, style of soap/shampoo dispensers in the shower. Pleasantly surprised with room size and decor. Living room area with library and computer. Several outside areas to relax, enjoy being on vacation. Incredible buffet breakfast including waffle maker. Well chosen location on the third floor with outside seating located with a bulls eye view of Morro Rock. Enjoyed watching the sun rise on the rock to start the day. We felt like the management really cared about the guest experience and has a talent for thinking through an "average hotel experience" and how to bring the level beyond expectation! A nice touch: the Robert Reynolds coffee table book of prints, the "Love Story" in room reading. Certainly the history and heritage of the family of the founder is tuned in to putting Morro Bay and La Serena on the map. Travelers from all over the world have a treat in store.
