We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and also visiting with some other folks from different states. It's always interesting to find out more information regarding the inn. Richard told us the inn was 8 years old and he was the second owner. All the beautiful furniture was Thomasville and the rooms had every possible amenity one could want.... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. I say hotel because thus place seems like the perfect blend of B&B and boutique hotel. You get the friendly staff and great food and service of a B&B plus the privacy and amenities that you'd expect from a nice hotel including an elevator so you don't have to lug bags up... More

This B&B is in a perfect location, right on the water. 90 seconds walk from your room and you're on the beach. There are also some excellent restaurants within walking distance. Our room (202) was quite large, larger than it looks in the pictures, was nicely decorated, and was clean and well maintained. Wireless internet was very easy to connect... More

Driving down the PCH from San Fransico, we arrived around 9p. The office was closed and everything locked up. Alas, a note and phone number. We called, they gave us the door code and a key was taped to our room. That's how service is supposed to be! Great little town!

We spent two nights here on our California trip and it was TripAdvlsor that took us here. The only reservation I have is that the place is not literally on the beach as has been the case with a few places we have stayed in. But room 202 is huge and well appointed and has a great view of the... More

Room 202 was fantastic. You viewed the beach & the pier & of course, all the people. A very comfortable room. The ladies working there were also so helpful and nice. Keep up the good work. We'll be back!!

Not much goes on in this town, so I wonder why the room rate was so high - I paid the same in Carmel and Yosemite on the same trip. I guess we're paying for Hot Tub, happy hour & appetisers and other extras. We didn't stump up for a beach view room - which would have been even more... More

Dear Guest, We would like to take a few lines to explain our features. Our goal is to provide casual luxury our rooms are about $20 higher than rooms at hotels in town that offer fewer amenities & there are no other hotel rooms in town that offer a view like our Upstairs Ocean Views.

The first lie is that this property is on the beach. Its on a parking lot in front of the beach with all of the attentive foot and car noise. Don't plan to check in early or late. There are no exceptions to the rule with this bunch of unaccommodating staff. This B and B does not leave you warm... More

Dear Guest, We apologize that you felt miss led by our location, we try to make it clear during reservation the difference between a Street Level Beach View and an Upstairs Full Ocean View. There are no properties that sit on the sand in Cayucos, we are however the premier location for those looking to spend time "on the beach".... More
