Perfect little getaway. This was my second stay at this charming B&B on the coast. Splurge and get the second floor beach view suites, large and comfy with gorgeous views of the beach, pier and in the distance, Morro Rock. Located on the "Main Drag" the inn is situated in the best area for ease of shopping, dining and walking... More

A wonderful B& B directly across the sand. View of ocean, pier. Walk to all downtown spots. Loved it. They have a nice wine happy hour and a wonderful breakfast in the mornings. We had the suite. Can't wait to return to on the beach B&B again soon

Saw a Groupon for the B&B and wondered how good could it be? Well...it was awesome. The king size bed's mattress was just right - literally not too soft nor too hard. The sheets were so soft you couldn't help but continue to touch them. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub were wonderful, and our room faced the ocean. The people... More

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. It is right across the street from the beach. The rooms are nicely decorated. I really enjoying the fireplace and the jetted tub. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have slept on, and had the softest sheets. They had wine, beer, fruit, cheese and nuts at night, and a... More

The location, next to the pier, the fabulous breakfasts, the lovely rooms and comfy beds all make this one of the nicest bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly and they do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. I highly recommend it.

Our ocean facing second floor room was spacious, nicely furnished, and clean/well maintained. Wine and snacks as well as breakfast were all very good. The B&B is close to the beach with only a small street between. First floor rooms may not allow leaving windows open at night which not only will eliminate the wonderful ocean sound but also then...

Just to be sure readers understand, the 1st floor rooms are elevated three feet above street level and the decks have 3 foot railings, so you would have to vault 6 feet to get on a 1st floor deck. Also, windows have a feature which allows you to lock them partially open. More

I spent 4 nights in a beautiful room with a 4 poster bed, fireplace and balcony. The room was nicely decorated, bed comfortable and the decent sized bathroom had a jetted soaking tub. Everyone on the staff was friendly and the breakfast is good, though small amount on offer. The different hot dishes offered every morning were delicious. The location... More

Well-appointed, well-run, clean and charming B&B. Some rooms face the ocean, and decor is quaint. The owners cook a hot breakfast themselves, and it's fantastic. Right next to the Cayucos pier, and across the street from a rowdy saloon.

Book a three night stay online about two weeks ago. They sent a newsletter to me through email about their fall specials that would have saved me 250.00-300.00 dollars. When I tried to work out the special they advised there would be a $20.00 cancellation fee. Having read their website terms and conditions it did not say anything about a... More
