Was passing throughout Morrow Bay, and decided to stay the night. Chose the Bayfront Inn for the location, close to the water, walking distance to restaurants and shops. When checking in, the front office agent, was chatty and fun to talk with. she explained where I could get the most amazing BBQ Oysters, and she was right, best I ever... More

We had reservations here, but did not stay, why the 5 stars? Because the owner/manager has the best customer service ethic I've witnessed in some time, maybe ever. She went above and beyond for people she didn't even know and had never met. I did notice that the room was no smoking when I reserved but didn't pay much attention,... More

Had a marvelous stay at the Bayfront Inn. The room was immaculate, bed was very comfortable. Refrigerator in the room, with lots of snacks and free continental breakfast. Pets are welcome. Had a great view of the bay and sunset was spectacular! Plenty of shops within walking distance. I would highly recommend this inn and definitely would stay here again... More

I picked Bayfront Inn because they are pet friendly. They really love animals. The place was clean and tidy. I would say the rooms are small but a great value. You get coupon for delicious daily gourmet cinnamon rolls baked right next door. Free continental breakfast, coffee, salt water taffy and snacks left in room. Your pet gets a new... More

We were warned when we checked in that our room was somewhat eclectic and it was - right over the office it had a large king size spa bath in the bedroom and the telephone was a pair of lips Our room (including the spa) was immaculately clean and our view was out over the marina.

It was a great stay on our route from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Super comfy beds, very nice owner and a lot of free goodys in the room. Morro Bay it self is a small fisher village with a nice charm.

I spent two days at the Bayfront Inn. It is located at the north end of the Embarcadero, across the street from the docks. I had one of the ocean view rooms, room 15, and had a beautiful view of Morro Rock. I could hear the birds and the seals. The room was small but not uncomfortably so. The room... More

About the only thing this motel has going for it is the location. That's about it. There is only one room with 2 beds and it is verrrry awkwardly set up. Room is not square, so beds don't sit side by side. It is extremely cramped. To say the room is tiny is an understatement. My closet at home is... More

We are a motel revival, small rooms, minimal furniture, lots of perks, great location, super clean. We only have 1 room with 2 full beds. This room is not square. Nothing about our place is mundane. This guest says that her closet is as big as this 300+ square foot room. We are what we are and where we are.... More

This is a good hotel. The rooms are small (cozy) but they are clean and have a good décor to them. The view is second to none...you are right there next to all the restaurants, harbor, and the big rock. They give you complimentary coupons for local eateries and there is a great breakfast place directly adjacent to the hotel.... More

Yes, the place accepts dogs but the room was tiny and the view was obstructed by an outside wall. No desk to write on, no space for a desk! It is clean but too small to be comfortable. It was very noisy the first night.

Guest booked through Booking.com. a Standard Queen Room. There was no declaration of him bringing a Pet. He did not book a room with a view through booking.com which there is an option. We declare our room sizes online. He was sent a confirmation on his booking date that indicated that the room was not a view room. Our website... More
