Don't be fooled by the "Inn and Spa" in the name of this property. This place is quite subpar for an inn -- the decor is stark but kind of low class, and it's located in a little strip mall, next door to an even cheaper looking motel. At least it was quiet and the bed was comfortable, so my... More

Stayed in the Big Sur room for four nights during the past holiday season, loved the place. The smell of the french bakery downstairs was worth the price of the room alone. Cool pictures on the wall, cool wood beams in the building, amazing view of the bay and the Rock, we'll definitely be back.

I really wanted to like the Front Street Inn, but I left feeling disappointed. I thought it would be the highlight of our trip down the Central Coast. Although the room furnishings were very nice and the view was terrific as promised, several things kept me from feeling satisfied: - when we arrived around 5pm, the innkeepers were not there... More

We are from Massachusetts and we were looking for a central jumping off place to view the numerous sites (Big Sur, Monterey, SLO, Paso Robles, wineries, Pismo beach and Morro Bay) and a place to return to after each day of site seeing. We read the trip advisor reviews and 'through the few lines' of weak complaints, before we decided... More

We stayed in the Hideaway for two nights over Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time. The view from this room is incredible! You're right on the bay. There's so much to see -- the birds, the sea otters, the marina -- there's no need for the TV. Our room was close to everything. We were able to walk to... More

The rooms of the Front Street Inn are a wonderful and relaxing enviroment. The people who run the Inn are wonderful people, who make your stay feel welcome. I highly reccomend this Inn for your next stay.

The room was nice but ! My wife booked the hotel and I was not happy with the fact of NO PHONE in the room, what if we had to call 911 For what we paid we should have a PHONE in the room. The front looked like a strip mall. We went too tripadvisor after we stayed and someone... More

Hideaway, the room which worldtraveler619 visited and commented on, is self contained. Hideaway is the only one of our four rooms which which does not connect to the lobby. The privacy and the intimacy of Hideaway make it twice as popular as the other rooms, according to our fiscal year results ending june, 2007. Hideaway contains every amenity available to... More

The rooms are beautiful and the view is incredible. But it's a little odd being located in what looks like stripmall. We arrived on a Friday afternoon. The room was clean, very spacious and quite comfortable. As another reviewer has said, be sure to bring your own toiletries such as shower gels and lotions because they're not provided. They do...

We wanted to do something special for our 30th anniversary and Morro Bay is our special getaway. We discovered this jewel of a place to stay quite by accident. We made reservations and stayed in the room called the "traveler." Wow... We had a couples massage. We had a glorious view of Morro Rock through wall to wall windows which... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Front Street Inn is a small waterfront hotel on the embarcadero in Morro Bay. If you're sailing into Morro Bay, look for our green roof and three gables. From every window in your room you can watch the fishing fleet, visiting yachts, the harbor, the Rock, the sandspit and the ocean beyond. Our spa treatments are performed upstairs in two specially appointed rooms across the hall. ... more   less
