Proprietor is deceiving the public with her cajoling and inappropriate demeanor. We felt more like occupants than guests. When we had problems with the plumbing, the coffee maker and a lamp, management could not be found. Once our problems were brought to her attention, we were advised that the maintenance man couldn't find anything wrong. We were scolded like schoolchildren... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2016 via mobile

We loved our stay at the Bayfront Inn in Morro Bay! They love dogs and Jayne at the front desk made us feel so welcome! The room was small but very clean and comfortable! The continental breakfast was delicious. The location is perfect, right across the street from the water and "The Rock". Right next door is a fabulous little... More

Another wonderful stay at the Bayfront Inn for the annual Lighthouse Century weekend. Rooms are small and with a bicycle in the room it was even smaller. Next time I'll make sure to ask for a larger room - or maybe a smaller bed. Lee (Lea?) and Jane were very accommodating as always, although we did get reprimanded for being... More

This is my second stay with the Bayfront Inn. Well, nothing stays the same....the help is friendly and quite helpful but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. It's old, plain and simple. The room is small and needs work. Mini blinds and blackout curtains that don't close are outdated. A chair was added to the room which was... More

Stayed here last night - compared to the other hotels on our trip this was probably least value for money. Although you get free cinnamon rolls (which were delicious), free fish and chip supper and extras in room e.g. Water, snacks etc the cost of the room was pretty pricey. Also the room is very small and as has been... More

As the title states this is truly a mixed review. Being from the tourism industry for the past 20'years I understand lodging price structure, especially on days of special event happenings or seasonal room rates. To start the Bayfront in understands great customer service. We received several pre-visit emails that were most appreciated. On arrival check-in was smooth and professional.... More

Another GREAT visit! Weather was beautiful, especially coming from inland heat. The people you meet in Morro Bay are like small town America was in the 50s: warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful. And then their is Bay Front Inn as the perfect base. Immaculate small inn right on the Embarcadero with a breathtaking view of The Rock, great amenities (sacrifice... More

I stayed here with my 2 small children, and they wanted to charge me extra for my 5 year old daughter. The front desk person was so rude when he saw my kids - he looked at them and asked me to step outside and wait while he called the manager. I felt like I was a high schooler told... More

I have to admit, when I first drove up, I felt like I just drove into the 1950's. But, what it lacks in a newer looking modern hotel it beats 10 fold in charm. It is well kept and very clean. The views are incredible and it is very convenient to all of the Embarcadero. They have many seating areas... More
