Get a room overlooking the ocean. The rooms are well appointed and cozy. Breakfast was tasty, hot, and fresh with a lot of options. Fireplace, large comfy bed, scenic view, and a hot tub; you can't ask for anything more.

We spent two nights here with a Groupon--fabulous location right on the beach in the little town of Cayucos--spacious room, fireplace, comfortable beds and a little patio to watch the sunset. The breakfasts that Maureen cooked every morning were amazing--so great to awaken every morning to the lovely aromas wafting from the breakfast room--quiches, homemade muffins, blueberry coffee cake to...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here as part of our honeymoon, and we are both so glad we did! We got a ridiculous discounted price on Groupon, but even the full price would have been worth it. We stayed in room 207... VERY spacious, with fireplace, jetted tub, private balcony, min-fridge, etc. Only downside is this room has... More

The Inn is simple looking without the charm of what we expected in a B&B but the room was very nice, comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. We had a nice view of the ocean and pier. The staff was nice, helpful, and friendly and we were treated to a very nice selection of snacks and wine in the late afternoon.... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary at this amazing B&B "on the beach" this past weekend. From the moment we checked in Katie took care of us. Wonderful ambiance and great food. We cannot wait to return to this great spot in a great little beach town.

My husband and I went for a wedding on the beach this past weekend and this was the perfect place! Quick walk to the beach, great location for shopping on the main drag and close to multiple restaurants for a cocktail overlooking the water. Breakfast both mornings were delicious - much better than the town's options. We had a small... More

My wife and I stayed here because of a groupon deal we got online. We have never been to Cayucos before and were very much surprised what a great little town this is. The B&B was one of the best we have ever stayed at. It is so very well run and Maureen is an amazing cook. We met so... More

What a great find in the quiet seaside resort of Cayucos. We were welcomed warmly with delicious appetisers and wine by the charming Katie how looked after us perfectly throughout our stay. Our room was lovely with a small balcony and a partial sea view. As far as we were concerned the reduction for a partial sea view was very... More

On the Beach is beautifully decorated and and our room was lovely and big. It's very close to the sea, so it was lovely to hear the waves at night. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the lobby (in addition to microwave and coffee maker in the room) and a home-cooked breakfast with a great selection. The staff... More
