The Front Street Inn was a lovely surprise! We only stayed one night in Morro Bay as we were on our way back to LA after a momentous Californian Road Trip. We stayed in "Big Sur" room which was huge and had fabulous views of The Rock. The bed was large and very comfortable and the room had all the... More

We had an incredible 3 days..This is a very small Inn (2 Rooms) that are beautifully built and furnished.

Front Street Inn & Spa was in a good location, away from all the street noises yet close enough to be able to walk to all the main/touristy areas. The room was big, nice, and comfortable. Upon our arrival we were greeted by one of the owner's father who informed us that the main owners were on vacation. He showed... More

Tom and Val at Front Street Inn were very nice when we arrived. The room was a nice size, very clean, with nice big windows that faced the harbor. The windows could be opened which was great - the ocean breeze came in and we sat in the chairs and just watched the activity outside for a long while. Morro... More

We're from Hawaii, visiting family in the area. We booked Front Street Inn due to its great/ convenient location; the rooms looked "woodsy"-open beam wood ceilings, heavy wood furniture, and a fireplace! The best views of Morro Bay & the Rock from a cozy & comfy room. I looked at other cheaper & not so nice motels in the area,... More

My wife and I spent two days in Morro Bay's Front Street Inn. We needed some down time near a quiet beach setting. We found it! Our goals were to lay low, sleep in, walk around, wander some shops, read, nap, and enjoy each other. The inn is nicely done and comfortable. We were warmly greeted and the room was... More

I am worried about telling the world on Trip Advisor about this little gem tucked away on the north side of the Embarcadero in Morro Bay, but I have to be honest and tell you we had a wonderful stay for two nights. We were in the smallest of the rooms, The Traveler with a King bed, luxury European bedding,... More

Front Street Inn is so nice. I'm not going to call it luxurious, it's more homey than anything else, but very comfortable and cozy. There's a fridge and a microwave so you don't have to eat out if you don't want to (although with all the places to go, you should). The view is wonderful, as is the location (which... More

BEST view in Morro Bay. This hotel is clean, nicely decorated, pleasant ambiance and the staff was very welcoming. We enjoyed out stay there and would return again. A great view from our room of the embarcadero and the Rock.

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
