“Great place to stay, good idea to be dog lover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Friendly and clean, thin walls but great value. We stopped for one night whilst on route up the west coast and wished we'd booked for two. Great little town wild life in the bay was remarkable, sea otters, seals, sea lions, not to mention the birds. If we ever return to the west coast we will book in again.

Considering the price of hotels/motels in the area, this is a steal. You can WALK anywhere in DT Morro Bay, so don't worry about the location. Restaurants, the rock and shops are less than 2 mins away. I like that there is a refrigerator in the rooms with drinks and room for your other food items that need to be cooled.

The rooms are small, but I have stayed in much smaller for a higher cost. The vouchers for cinnamon rolls in the morning are nice as their "breakfast" consists of fruit, pop tarts, coffee and tea. I will say the cinnamon rolls next door are fantastic!

Rooms are clean. The free toiletries are tiny so bring your own shampoo/conditioner if you have long hair or else you'll leave your significant other with nothing left, lol.

We made our second visit to the Bayfront Inn last week. Just as we remembered from last year, it was very clean, friendly, close to everything in town, and extremely dog friendly. We will definitely be back next year.

I've been to Morro Bay a couple times and my family has been visiting for years. Bayfront Inn has the best view of all, especially if you stay in room #20. It’s less than a mile to the rock and makes for a nice walk. The owners are especially nice and provide many wonderful offers when you get there, whether it’s free coupons for nearby restaurant’s, candy/snacks/drinks in the room or in the coffee room next to the office. I will stress that these are European style rooms that are very small, however they are as someone else said "immaculately clean". I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Room #20 is upstairs, has one queen size bed, a jacuzzi and the very best view of the rock. Best for...

My wife and I stayed in Morro Bay while visiting our daughter and grandchildren, as we had done previously. This was our first stay at Bayfront Inn (stayed 10 days) and plan to stay there whenever we come to Morro Bay from now on. We did not have our dog with us this time, but it will be really nice to have her with us for another visit. The owner is so warm and friendly, as is the staff. They always were smiling, saying 'hi' and asking if we needed anything. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable (which we have not found at any other places we have stayed). We were even able to get a room for our friends who came for an overnight visit! They enjoyed the cleanliness and quiet surroundings, as we did. Though the rooms are small (cozy!), they were very comfortable and met all of our needs. Jayne and Leigh were very friendly and welcoming to our grandchildren too. The location is the best in Morro Bay. Everything we needed was within a very short walking distance. We loved walking across the street with our coffee to look at the boats and especially to watch the otters play near the dock. We really enjoyed the French bakery next door and being able to walk down Embarcadero to all the shops! We were not able to have a meals at Frankie and Lola's this time, but plan to next visit as we heard good things about them. We HIGHLY recommend Bayfront Inn! Quiet, clean, comfortable, close to everything and a beautiful view of Morro Rock!

I stayed here with my daughter on a recent trip down the coast. When we pulled in, we were enchanted by the sound of the sea lions out in the bay. Lee (Leigh?), who arranged our reservation and took care of us while we were there, did an excellent job. She couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The room was clean, though small, and the shower turned out to be one of the best I've had at a hotel. The price was also very reasonable.

There was only one little thing that could have been better. Late at night, when we began to hear strange noises nearby, my daughter at first thought we were hearing a dying sea lion out in the courtyard, or a homeless person yelling. I had to explain to her that no, that was the man next door having sex. His female companion was also quite loud. In fact, the walls were SO thin that we could hear them talking afterward and could almost make out what they were saying. I realize it's an old building and there's not much they can do about this, but travelers should be aware that the walls are super thin, and if your neighbors are noisy you WILL hear them. (And if you happen to be the one making the noise, know that your neighbors will hear YOU!)

A pet friendly, compact , BUT very clean room with unbelievable amenities. Bottles of water in the fridge, fruits,coffee, hot water, continental breakfast items in the "galley".....as well as coupons for daily cinnamon rolls, fish and chips, as well a wine tasteing and discount to purchase wines. Convenient location to walk to the Embarcadero to sightsee or shop.

To "top it off".....a very courteous and helpful management and staff.

Room Tip: With a pet, choose room 5 or 12
