hubby and I decided to take a break with a few days down the coast.The views here were amazing,right on the water! boats :) yaaay! The landscaping and walking path lovely, the breakfasts were incredible. The rooms were "roomy"(we got a studio), quaint little patio, french doors :) Those were the good parts;
The bad: Lumpy mattress, very uncomfortable for my back;walls were dirty and needed a fresh coat of paint, the white wood furniture in the living area was not cleaned at all, the bathroom floor had definitely not been cleaned.The cheap carpet/rug(?) was stained in various places;tiny frig was gross & looked as if it haadnt been cleaned or wiped down in months....and froze our drinks and food.Everything smelled very musty; we had to go out and buy room deodorizer 1st day! Maybe we got the last room??IDk, I booked online,room lloked great online. it wasnt full when we got there, however the 2nd day it was booked. I did not sleep in the sheets or even under the blankets,the duvet cover was stained.I would go back here IF , and only if,they cleaned the place up and made it alittle more sanitary. Maybe just OUR room wasnt cleaned properly(?) because I see wonderful reviews here, that is why we booked it.

Room Tip: Get a room in # 3-8

This is a nice, quiet hotel, located away from the busy tourist areas. It is located right on the back of Morro Bay. Views from the room, and from the front porch, include the water, small boats, and shorebirds. The complimentary breakfast is a free pass to a delicious breakfast at the cafe located in the same parking lot. You know that it is good, when most of their customers are locals. There also is a Mexican restaurant conveniently located on the grounds. We enjoyed our stay, and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: ask for a downstairs room that faces the bay

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in Los Osos. The Back Bay Inn was perfect for lounging around or accessing the Montana de Oro State Park- a must see! The breakfast was provided at the cafe across the way and was very yummy. We also enjoyed the afternoon wine and snacks. Will definitely be back to this b & b for more r & r.

We were so glad we discovered this little spot located on a beautiful bay. Our room was very affordable and came with an amazing breakfast at the Bayback Cafe, a staple with the locals. Our room was nothing fancy, but very clean and the bed was SUPER comfortable. The Inn's beautiful grounds make up for any aesthetic lacking in the rooms. Definitely would stay here again.

This inn has had so many good reviews already. I am just adding to the voices. It was everything people said. Lovely views, quiet, good breakfasts. What I also liked is that it is completely unpretentious. If you want a place to "see and be seen" this is not it! If you like casual and friendly people, especially people with dogs, this is the spot. There is a public path along the bay just outside that goes for miles. Our room was large and the bed was very confortable. Everything is clean and neat, if a bit dated. Overall it was very pleasant and I recommend it!
