This is an old motel that has been kept up and, although it has many layers of paint, it has a nice, friendly vibe. We got the last room left for one night (last minute booking) above the office so no view of the harbor. The room was small, but clean with a little fridge, coffee maker and a goody... More

Do you love to be woken up by barking dogs? Do you like passive aggressive staff? How about ridiculously tiny rooms? If you answered yes, the Bayfront Inn is for you! Owner/manager at front desk is weirdly uptight about children but appears to be fine with dogs barking day and night. The "two doubles" room (#9) is WAAAY too small... More

My husband, two dogs, and I just returned from a stay at Bayfront. The location and view are unbelievable. I've read the previous reviews, and all I can say about the low scores is that the hotel is very transparent about policies, the facility, etc. on their website, including the fact that the rooms are very small; they even include...

A wonderful place to stay. Very friendly and personal at check-in. Very dog friendly. I loved the deck and patio and made some good dog friends there. Morro Bay is a very dog friendly town and we had an excellent fish dinner with other dog owners at a local restaurant. There are tons of restaurants and shops within a short... More

We stopped in Morro Bay to split up our drive from Los Angeles to Carmel. The distance was perfect for a stop. The town is pretty cool if you like fishing towns. Great shops and places to eat on the main street. The rock is pretty awesome as well. I am a professional photographer so I liked the photo options... More

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Extremely dog friendly, with goodie bag for dog (dog blanket, dog treats, poo bags, dog toy, list of local dog-friendly restaurants and stores), plus dog food bowl and water setup in the room. Rooms were clean and well kept, but had the thinnest walls that I have encountered in years (could hear the people... More

The hotel is very dog friendly. They provided a blanket, treats, and water and food bowls in the room. There were several dogs staying at the same time as us, so our doggie got to make new friends. It is the closest hotel to the rock and beach area which was great because our Lab loves the beach. The rooms... More

Earlier reviews have pretty much said it all. - Across the street from the harbor facing the rock (it's the closest hotel to the rock) - Pleasant, very helpful hoteliers - Clean rooms - Lots of freebies such as cinnamon buns, fish & chips, trolley passes, plus in-room salt-water taffy, juice, and bottled water. - Galley with microwave and fresh...

We pulled into the forecourt of this little motel and parked easily. Check in was great. The lady couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are perfect for an overnight stop with quirky little features like a red lip phone. A little sweetie basket welcomes you. Morro bay itself is lovely. Great seafront restaurants where you can see the seals and... More
