Excellent location for taking in seaside life with "fido" - wide range of shops and dining a stroll away on the embarcadero - friendly, sincere , eager-to-please staff. Not luxurious by any means, but comfortable and clean and a good value. The cafe next door is a pleasant surprise - top notch for breakfast and lunch.

This hotel was really surprising. For the price I did not expect the level of service, charm and quality. The rooms are on the small side but not a problem at all. They are clean and nice. The location is right on the bay. Cross the street and you are on the wharf. We tried the weekend special and the... More

The Bayfront Inn is much improved from the last time I stayed there. It is still the most convenient motel in Morro Bay . . . if you are not disabled (which I am) it is within walking distance of everything. The rooms are small, clean, and the beds are comfortable. I was able to put my walker in the... More

Our room at the hotel was very cute and clean. Overall wasn't a bad stay. Because I was with my husband and another couple it was difficult because this place did not have anywhere indoor for us to go and talk. The rooms were not very condusive to this and the only "public" space they had in the hotel was... More

This is one of the oldest motels in the area in a fabulous location. Our rooms are not fancy. They are very simple, small, and extremely clean and comfortable. Our pricing is very affordable and our special packages can't be beat. Staff is extremely accommodating and guests are greeted with taffy. We offer fresh fruit and coffee in the mornings... More

First let me say that the staff was very warm and welcoming to us and very freindly to our dog. Location was near a number of restaurants on the Embarcadero. And maybe I'm just spoiled......But did you know that "European Style Rooms" can mean a room that is so small that you only have about 3 feet on each side... More

We felt welcomed from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. Everything was just like they say on the Bayfromt Inn Literature so no one should be disappointed.. Suggestions for dinner and places to visit were great.

My friend and I stayed here on our drive up Hwy 1 from San Diego to San Francisco. The room rates were very affordable, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Certainly a good place to stay on a budget.
