Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I stayed here recently while attending a wedding. It was the perfect location for daytime jaunts (15-30 minutes to Morro Bay, Cayucos beach, SLO) and quiet, peaceful nights in. Service was impeccable; the staff was friendly and welcoming and had chocolates and fruit at the front desk as we signed in. The upper room with the balcony facing the bay was clean and well-furnished (it even had an ample sitting area). I also had breakfast and lunch outside on the wood deck a couple of times and found it to be utterly peaceful. I used the certificates for breakfast at the diner and thought it was a good add on from the Inn. There is a good little Mexican restaurant (Maya) right in front of the Inn if you truly did not want to venture far from your room. I highly recommend this Inn and would definitely stay here again if I find myself in this area for some reason.

Room Tip: Upper room facing bay has balcony and beautiful scenery

We stumbled across this great little inn several years ago when staying in Morro Bay.
This was our 2nd stay at the Back Bay Inn and I hate to recommend it for fear the
word will get out!! Baywood Park is a lovely hidden location on the coast.....we have fallen in
love with the area and are considering a move here to retire.
If you want luxury and a 5 star hotel, this is not the place for you. Clean, comfortable rooms with
a great location and a peaceful atmosphere is what you will find. The breakfast offered at the
cafe is perfect. The happy hour wine and appetizers is really nice when you arrive to just chill
from your drive. We will be back again!!

The back bay inn is an understated pleasurable experience - the ground staff are so helpful and lovely.... the grounds are very clean and well kept- The cafe staff are amazing and a real plus to this establishment. I have found a few of the front desk staff to be a little slow- but otherwise everything is awesome. Can't beat the setting!

Room Tip: If a family- I would rent the cottage... heaps of room. all the rooms are very well equipped.

This was our third visit here and will not be our last! It is the perfect place to get away from it all and just enjoy the scenery. We were only here for one night, as we were on our way home from Northern California, and needed a "rest stop" about halfway. We were in a garden room - very spacious with an extremely comfortable king bed, a small attached room with a futon, microwave, fridge, and a large wardrobe. They give you a chit for breakfast at a very small restaurant on the grounds, where you can order some pre-determined items - made fresh and delicious. They also have a wine and nibbles reception every afternoon, and you can go out onto their raised deck and enjoy the company and views.

Room Tip: Any of their rooms facing the water would be great.

Stayed in Los Osos Ca a second night at a different B&B since we were not happy with the first one. Not sure which was worse. The Bay Back Inn B&B also was not what we were use to. This room was just like renting a hotel room, nothing special. The Inn keeper was very pleasant not like the so called other B&B across the street. Again we received a voucher for breakfast. The place where we had breakfast had good food, but again not what we are use to. We would not stay here again.

See the pictures - I cannot say enough about the Back Bay Inn. My friends love the Baywood which I am sure is lovely, but this place is RIGHT on the water! Sue & Larry (the Inn managers?). So over the top accommodating and nice. We honeymooned in Room #103. Yes it is the handicapped room. I am not graceful so it was funny, It has the straightest shot of the entire estuary because the bed faces the water. SO AWESOME! The food was fantastic at the Back Bay Cafe! The gals were cute, spunky, dollfaced pin up girls that added to the charm each morning. They know all the locals and serve delicious food and yummy pastries. (You get a free breakfast and coffee every day). If you are looking for quiet, peace, rest, kindness, funny locals, great puppies everywhere, walking trails, beautiful views and beautiful peaceful onsite gardens, GET THERE! (before we do)

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views but we stayed in #103 and loved it. Teenie, but each am, with that vi...

We traveled to the Central Coast for a visit with some high school friends on the weekend of a yearly music festival. We stayed two nights and dined in Morro Bay where there is an array of restaurants. The sunset view over the scenic bay is very tranquil and there is very little traffic for a restful night. The staff is gracious and welcoming. They have wi fi in this inn so it was a plus for an iPad user. We are looking forward to our next trip!

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view room, although with this location the bay is just steps from any of the rooms wit...
