Generally speaking, Morro Bay and the central coast of California is quite costly when seeking good lodging. From the exterior, most of the inns/ motels/ motor lodges all look the same, but what makes the difference between them is the customer service, cleanliness of room, and quality of furnishings/ decor. I ended up selecting the Bay View Inn because of... More

We stayed here on a trip down the coast for 1 night. The cost of the room was $169 for 2 queen beds for 3 adults. The room was small and dark looking over the car park. Everything in the room needed replaced. The towels were almost threadbare. The two beds were comfortable and clean. The carpets were stained. I... More

We had an excellent room..very clean and spacious. The price was great for being a Holiday weekend. Just a short walk to the Embarcadero.. The fire place made the room feel cozy but it was too hot to use it in July. I would definitely recommend to others and stay there again. Great service Andy.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Morro Bay, check out the Bay View Inn. Super friendly service from the owners, extremely clean, and VERY low rates make the Bay View a gem! One more thing....the BVI is two blocks from the water.

After my wife and I checked out in the morning we were heading up the N/W coast of California towards Big Sur when I realized I left a very special ring on the counter after washing my hands prior to leaving. We unfortunately were out range to call on our cell phones and after driving for approx. 1 hour north... More

Take a hint: Book early for SLO graduation weekend. Made late (one month prior) reservations and this was the best value we could find available. Room was just over $200 with taxes... Wouldn't have been as bad if the room actually had a "bay view", but our room had a view of a back fence. It was spacious, clean, and... More

The location is just a block from the waterfront and we could walk there and to Main St. We had a spacious room with a partial ocean and view of the Rock. The room was clean and had a comfortable bed. Andy and his wife, Kamimi, were very nice and tended to any questions we had about the area. Some... More

My girlfriend and I booked a trip for two nights at Bay View Inn. It was our first time in Morro Bay. Our stay was great! Our room was clean, had a nice view of the bay and Morro Rock, and the fireplace set a relaxing mood in the evening. The location was within walking distance from the beach, the... More

We stayed for two nights. the hotel is close to the bay, within a block ,which was very nice for quick walks to and from the shopping and dinners. The room was worn out the drapery had holes in them, the light fixtures were held up with nails and the toilet seat was broken. The fire place was a nice... More

The room was clean and the bed was great, BUT, the fireplace did not work, and the heater did not work very well. Staff was scarce and the parking is very limited. There are spaces that are chained off and customers could not use. Room rate we paid was $79.00 plus tax, sorry, not worth the price paid.
