I have stayed here once and plan to return again soon. The rooms are well taken care of but not luxurious. The prices are reasonable for the area. The selling point is the great location looking out at the bay. Very quiet and nice gardens. The breakfast is in a small restaurant next door and was quite tasty.

I hate writing a great review for this place since I would love to keep it our secret but I would recommend the Back Bay Inn to anyone who wants to get away. We enjoyed the hotel and great location, plus I was able to work since it was so quiet.

This was my first visit to Back Bay Inn which was recommended to me by a friend and have to say it was everything she said and more!

The Back Bay Inn is located on the back bay of Morro Bay and offers a picturesque location away from the maddening crowds. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the amenities are first rate. The included breakfast is excellent, especially the frittata of the day, and they offer a glass of wine each afternoon. People... More

Been coming here for more than 10 years whenever we vacation on the central coast! Prices have nearly doubled over time (We paid 165 dollars for one night this time.) Ownership has changed, but improvements are evident, if not yet quite complete. It's a one-of-a-kind experience, right on the water (upstairs with a view and spacious rooms)...downstairs rooms smaller (we... More

Los Osos is pretty much a locals spot and talking to locals not many tourists make it down there. The Back Bay Inn is a waters-edge spot. Large rooms - our also had a nice gas fired "log" fire. Lovely hosts offer wine and nibbles early evening - nice touch. Breakfast at adjacent cafe works well as you get to... More

Los Osos / Baywood is a quiet hideaway on the Central Coast, and the locals do know what a beautiful spot this is. We have 3 small inns here, and love that we are off the beaten path. We're certainly glad you found us and were able to enjoy some local flavor. Please join us again sometime soon! More

First the positives, then the negatives, then the bottom line. Read the whole review. The inn is in a lush setting just a few feet from the water. The beautifully landscaped grounds between the inn and the water provide wonderful window views from our room, so be sure to request a water-side room. We had a king-size bed in fairly... More

We spent two nights here in April .... we were driving slowly up the PCH from LAX to SFO and came across this place from a blog by someone who had done the same trip and decided to stay. Booking was easy, the room descriptions are accurate and the photos too. The views from the gardens and most rooms are... More

Amazing, absolute hidden gem with the warmest locals. Off the beaten track and worth it in every way. A must for all sorts of travellers, especially if you want some great surf at nearby spots. Free wine on arrival and breakfast the next morning is a added bonus.

Thanks so much for staying with us. It sounds like you found one of our favorite activities - just sitting down and watching the bay with a glass of wine in hand! La Palapa Mexican Restaurant does a great job with their food and hospitality. Glad to hear they took good care of you. Hope to see you back soon! More
