It was my birthday weekend, so we splurged a little. WOW, was it worth it! Background for me; we have family in Cayucos, so we have stayed at nearly every hotel in town (seriously, there are probably 11 hotels and I've stayed at 9 of them.) We've stayed at the budget hotels and a couple of the high dollar hotels,... More

Quiet, sleepy, charming town... and this is certainly the best of the options. Very cute place and nice size rooms. Beds were amazing, the sheets were unbelievably soft. And breakfast was delicious. So why the 3 stars?? 2 reasons: 1. We paid full price, so at $300ish a person it's a fortune for where you're staying. In contrast we're staying... More

We celebrated my Mother's 80th birthday at this beautiful, peaceful place. We asked for and were given all 5 rooms on the first floor with the ocean views. Exactly what our mother wanted. Days at the beach!! This place was perfect. The staff were just awesome. There were 12 of us and we all rated our 3-day stay (Friday-Sunday) a... More

My husband chose On the Beach for his birthday (our third visit). We like room 202 on the second floor. You can sit on the balcony in your plush robe and watch the beach goers below. There is also a hot tub down the hall if you like that sort of thing. We stopped in around 1:30 to see if... More

We were looking for someplace on the beach to spend the weekend before driving up to Yosemite National Park. Cayucos was a good stopping place after a days drive and "On the Beach Bed and Breakfast" ended up being the perfect choice. Our room was a delight, the property just a few steps to the beach or to the pier.... More

This trip was intended to get us away from our hectic Orange County CA lives. And it worked. The town allows no chain stores of any kind so it has a genuine small town feel, the pace of the town, even during the expected busy times is calm and relaxed, the sales people smile and thank you, traffic is minimal,...

By the time we arrived in Cayucos at 5pm, the town was pretty much rolling up the sidewalks. We checked into the B &B and were given the keys to room 207 which faced the street. The room was lovely and immaculately clean. The fireplace started with a flick of a switch, which we turned off immediately as it was... More

A first class experience in this simple but lovely, unpretentious inn. Our room was very spacious, very comfortable with a great bathroom. The breakfast was exceptional; fresh and homemade. Going to make the Baked Oatmeal when I get back to London. The staff should be very proud of their efforts.
