This hotel is directly across the street from the harbor. The hotel is small inside and the rooms are the same. Reminded me of the early 60's. Yes I can remember the 60's I was a teenager. Its just walking distance to the beach and the like I said the harbor. You can see the rock vividly and that's the... More

Super nice staff, huge bed, great shower, clean room and complimentary snacks with bottles of water in the room. My girlfriend and I drove the PCH from San Francisco through the Bigsur and slept here after a tiring driving day. The lady who takes care of the place said she had left the heating on for our bedroom to be... More

We just spent 3 nights in Morro Bay at the Bayfront Inn. It was everything it said it was and more. Great views and super friendly and helpful staff. The goodie basket and coupons for wine tasting, fish and chips and the daily cinnamon rolls was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this Inn.

This place, (and Morro Bay itself), were the surprise gem of our Hwy 1 road-trip. Wonderful service, so welcoming and homely. Felt just like you were staying at a relatives place. Room was small as others have mentioned, but clean and cosy. Breakfast was fun, and the location could not be beaten. Sitting on colourful deck sipping our hot tea... More

We - myself, my wife and our dog - like this hotel and stayed there numerous times. Why? First, it is pet-friendly (not just allow pets). Second, rooms are clean. Third, staff are friendly and helpful. Location! The hotel is located at the end of Embarcadero, a street along the bay with restaurants, bars, gift shops, aquarium, etc. Right next... More

Our room was clean but very small. There is no dresser and my suitcase would not fit under the bed, so I had to set it on the closet shelf, meaning I had little clearance for hanging garments. There is a small plastic chair at the desk, but other than that, you have to sit on the bed. With that... More

Its cozy and it is clean, very pet friendly, had some nice perks with the local businesses for us (thanks those cinnimaon rolls were fabulous), and the staff was very friendly. The location was great being between thecresturaunts and the beach. I would book here again.

My girlfriend and I were returning to the Bay Area from Carlsbad and wanted to stay somewhere along the coast for an evening. We decided on Morro Bay since neither of us had been there before. We logged onto Tripadvisor and noticed there the Bayfront had one room available so we booked it. We arrived 10 minutes too late to... More

We spent part one of our Christmas vacation on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, see our review "35 years later". I spent a few hours over a few days researching Morro Bay hotels before choosing the Bayfront Inn for part two of our trip. This hotel is the closest place to the "ROCK" to stay. The tripadvisor reviews were... More

My wife and i have stayed at a couple of the motels in Morro Bay and the Bayfront is our favorite. The location is amazing. I love walking out my room in the morning to see the Morro Bay rock. Great esthetic and friendly staff too.
