Nice and friendly staff, got free fish and chips dinner, free cinnamon rolls in the morning, basket of sweets in my room, right across the street from Morro Rock, heard the seals at night--- all PERFECT! Thank you for the hospitality. As a flight attendant I travel more than half of the month and unfortunately we do not stay in... More

OK the bed was small. OK the breakfast was basic. But how friendly was this place! You get great service, a super friendly owner, free juice and water in the fridge, free candy, free doritos and a lot of detail and love was put into decoration. Not the most fancy place, but for sure one of the most friendly hotels... More

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

We are always the bad guys when we have to say something about children playing in a manner that could hurt them and who are left unattended by parents. Even if a parent is physically present, the parent becomes disengaged when playing with their tech device. It is our liability if a child gets hurt on premises. Also, we have... More

Clean room and Friendly staff is a big plus. The entire town of Morro Bay is encountering a sand fly problem. We spray with organic products; we won't use any other kind of spray. We have a bug contraption on the property. Guests who leave their uneaten food items on tables or near their rooms is out of our control,... 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
