Salty Sister: Morro Bay, CA Hotel Review

If you haven’t visited this California Central Coast beach town in awhile, there are plenty of things to do in Morro Bay. My husband and I prefer staying at boutique hotels when we travel. Why do we like boutique hotels? They tend to be more intimate experiences, have beautiful interior design features and great floor plans. The Salty Sister Morro Bay hotel exceeded our expectations for an upscale California beach vacation.

The Salty Sister is a Morro Bay boutique hotel that is ideal for small groups or couples. The 5,000 square foot beach house is divided into 6 individual suites. Guests may rent the entire hotel and enjoy the open floor plan, with connecting suites, or reserve single suites. Whatever you choose, the Salty Sister hotel couldn’t be situated in a better location.

Morro Rock Oceanfront 

If you want water views and easy access to the beach, this Morro Bay boutique hotel is what you are looking for. Salty Sister hotel is literally across the street from Morro Rock and the Pacific Ocean and next door to the Maritime Museum.

Guests will be able to walk to the Embarcadero, beaches, farmers market and local restaurants, including Giovanni’s Fish Market. My recommendation is to pick up fresh fish and grill on the barbecue right from your private deck.

Salty Sister Boutique Hotel

As I mentioned previously, Salty Sister hotel offers flexibility when it comes to hotel rooms. We stayed in The Flagship, a beautiful one bedroom suite with oceanfront views of Morro Rock from the living room, dining room and kitchen.

Our suite included a king bed with high-end linen of neutral tones, a large dresser, matching end tables with nautical-themed lamps, a closet and 65″ Smart TV. The separate bathroom was plenty large and included a walk-in shower with natural stone on the floor. Costco size shampoo and conditioner were in each shower. There are no bathtubs in the beach house.

The living room is an open floor plan with high wood beamed ceilings and hardwood floors throughout the 5,000 beach house. The dining rooms flows into the kitchen with plenty of natural light. We liked the well-stocked kitchen with new LG appliances, including a full-sized refrigerator, dish washer, stove top and microwave oven.

Salty Sister hotel insider tips:

Rates start at $400 per night with a 2 night minimum. The Morro Rock boutique hotel was designed with large group gatherings in mind. The hotel suites open up to one another, or may be locked off, as needed. When open, Salty Sister hotel makes a 5,000 square foot beach house with 6 master suites, 2 kitchens with dishes, silverware and cooking utensils. Additionally 2 kitchenettes, game rooms, 2 laundry centers and private deck complete the house.

It should be noted that access to the roof top deck is via suites 2 & 3. You’ll want to rent Spinnaker Suite if you want access to the roof top deck for those Morro Rock views at sunset.
