We stayed at the Ascot Suites a couple years ago and enjoyed our stay. There are a lot of choices and if I remember correctly, most are motel accomodations rather than hotels or boutique hotels. Make sure you get something within a couple blocks of the ocean.

Another option if you want to stay on the coast but not necesarily in town is Moonstone Beach just up the coast. There is a row of motels on one side of the street and a beach on the other. It's pretty rocky, so it's not really a swimming beach, but it's very nice for strolling.

Moonstone Beach is nice, but further up the coast and less convenient if you want to also spend some time in SLO.

Back Bay Inn is a small hotel right on the water (many of the rooms have a bay view). The hotel is located in Los Osos (around 1/2 way between SLO and Morro Bay along the back route). One of my favorite state parks (Montana De Oro) is located very close by.

In Morro Bay, the Inn at Morro Bay is a good choice for lodging right on the water. The hotel is located right across from a golf course and is a very pretty setting. A little secluded from the downtown area, but only a very short drive to the Embarcadero. The Inn has a restaurant on site, but there are also some good restaurants to choose from at the Embarcadero, especially if you like fish & chips. Julio's is also a very good casual little Mexican restaurant (located right next to the movie theater).

Another option for lodging near the water would be the Avila Beach Resort. It's around 7 miles from SLO. The Gardens at Avila is a great restaurant in the area. And for an all night greasy spoon diner, there is also Fat Cat's right on the pier in Avila.

We just got back from Cambria. The scenery in that area is spectacular. I can't wait to plan a return trip. Don't forget to go to Paso Robles wine country. More gorgeous scenery.

We stayed at the Inn at Morro Bay and loved it. Removed from town (but so very close), so it's very relaxing. Very pretty setting.

"The scenery in that area is spectacular"

I'm just curious as to where you are from? If this is "spectacular", I've got some land in Tennessee for sale quite reasonbaly.

Hwy 1 from Cambria to Big Sur is considered some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

Dear x,

I am fully aware of the scenery from San Simeon to Carmel; Have traveled it many, many times. I could tell you stories, having been through Hearst Castle when William Randolph Hearst still owned it. I also remember the animals that were there before Hearst donated them to the Zoo in San Francisco. My Father used to be a cowhand on the Hearst Ranch which is/was between Cambria and San Simeon.

Hearst also had (between Cambria and San Simeon) an Arabian horse ranch and a chicken farm.

I do not consider this to be part of the" We just got back
from Cambria. The scenery in
that area is spectacular"

Dear Grew Up Around There: It sounds like you have some issues about Growing Up Around There, I'm sorry. It doesn't matter where I am from, I loved visiting Cambria and the Central Coast of California, the scenery was spectacular.
