This is a superb B&B, starting with the first "B"--Bed. Mattress neither too hard nor too soft, same goes for pillow and the sheets have a wonderful cool, soft feel just right for either cold or hot weather. The second "B" Breakfast comes 2 ways: Good & Deluxe. A good continental breakfast is served from 8-9 (coffee maker and Peerless... More

On The Beach B&B in Cayucos, CA is my favorite place to stay when we go to the Central California coast. ALL the employees here are friendly and helpful with ANYTHING you need. The property is always clean and the morning breakfast and afternoon wine ( beer and sodas also available ) are always delicious. Great beach access and central... More

Cayucos, CA is one of our favorite quick get-a-way places. We have stayed in almost every hotel/motel in the area and rented homes for longer stays. This B & B is by far the best location for a couple of nights. Perfect location and great staff. Very spacious rooms, generous breakfast and happy hour. Only drawbacks were noise (which is... More

The linens are surprisingly comfortable! 2nd floor probably has better views but we had RM 3, easy access to the car parked right outside our balcony, I can practically throw... More

It appears they do not have maintenance staff, The room is missing a smoke detector the caulking around the sink is cracked. The light in the closet did not work. The security bar on the slider broke but they left one piece on it just to name a... More

Thank you for pointing out the repair items. I will have them repaired immediately. It's no excuse but from mid June to mid September the rooms are booked almost every night. We write in a book any repairs that are noted by guests or the housekeepers and we sometimes have to wait till the room is empty to address them.... More

My wife selected this establishment via the internet. The rooms are exactly like they are shown. They have private parking below the B&B which is perfect. The rooms were clean and well kept. If you are a cigar/smoker, their is allowance for you to smoke outside on the balcony. That was a plus for me as we were on the... More

My fiancé picked this beautiful spot for my bday weekend! We had the ocean view room w/fireplace. Not ended up being a super romantic trip and we even got lucky w/the weather and played on the beach! The inn keepers are very kind, the breakfast was delicious and the jet tub, divine!

Cayucos is an easy, unpretentious beach town. On the, Beach B & B was great. Our room had a balcony facing the beach. The room was spacious with good amenities. Nice breakfast. Easy access to HY 1 and beach walks. Staff was great.
