On the Beach is a fabulous, comfortable inn to stay at. The staff is warm and welcoming, the rooms large and wonderful and location on the beach and in the center of town could not be any better. The evening beverage and snack and morning breakfast are so delicious. Not your typical hotel experience. Definitely worth a Stay!!!!!!!

On The Beach staff is AWESOME (Richard you should be very proud). The Inn itself... More

We have found our home away from home here at On The Beach Bed & Breakfast. The location is perfect, with views of the ocean from your bedroom and the sounds of wave to lull you to sleep at night. Walking distance from Cayucos' best food, you can see the Brown Butter Cookie Company from the front steps. The rooms... More

My husband and I recently stayed at On the Beach to celebrate my sister's wedding in Cayucos. We only stayed for 2 nights, but we enjoyed it very much. Our room had all of the amenities you would expect from a comfortable, beautiful place on the beach. We stayed in room 2 downstairs. We could park our vehicle right outside... More

Stayed for three days over a weekend in May. Staff very friendly and outgoing. Room was very nice, only two items needed attention in room 202. The grout around the Jacuzzi tub needed redoing, and the patch painted area below the bathroom sink area needed to be painted. The food was wonderful at breakfast all three days, and their afternoon... More

This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay! We hired a car and drove down the coast and stopped here for a night on our way to Los Angeles. It was perfect! We got there at 5pm where the host was putting out complimentary canapes and drinks, and the same again happened at 8pm! The room was beautifully decorated, with... More

We hated to leave this place! Our room was beautiful and quite spacious with large private balcony overlooking ocean, fireplace and spa tub. Staff was friendly, personable and helpful. Wonderful smells from the kitchen drifted throughout the property all day! Breakfast included a different and unique hot meal each morning along with the usual yogurt, fruit, and homemade muffins or... More

My wife and I just celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary by spending 4 nights in Room 204. We had a terrific time due to "On the Beach". The always smiling staff did a terrific job at making us feel welcome. The "full" breakfasts, snacks, and happy hours were always top notch with excellent fresh cooked goodies. The cleaning staff was... More
