“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Great location (next Highway 1), rooms are spacious and comfortable and do have microvawe and a fridge, very clean, friendly nice staff and peaceful ambience! We can only recommend it! Next door there is a supermarkt and a lovely restaurant. You can rent DVD's for 1$ (and there is a DVD player in every room).

Large clean rooms. Plenty of space for your stuff. The staff was friendly and helpful. I don't bring pets but they accommodate folks who do. The grounds are nice. I would stay here again without shopping around. I always shop around...

After two days at the Shoreline Inn (which we love) they were full so we had to find other accommodations. We knew this ahead of time and had made reservations for four more nights at the Cayucos Beach Inn. Jay, the manager, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful and the Shoreline stated they recommended them when they were booked up. We were very pleased.

They are dog friendly and that was important to us as we were traveling with our two pooches. We also had our kids, age 17 and 20, and needed to stretch out a little. All of that was taken care of by their very ample room space. We had two queen beds with room left over and each room includes a recliner chair, which was a nice touch. There is a great space to take your dogs out to potty and the area even has a sink and holding kennel for rinsing them off after a run on the beach.

We could see the ocean from our room (upstairs) though the hotel is not ON the beach. It was quiet and had windows on both ends of the room that allowed LOTS of light, if you wanted it. We did. The price was amazing for it being Easter break and it allowed us to stay in Cayucos longer. We would definitely stay again. It was clean and smelled fresh and the maid was very sweet. Which brings me to add this: please tip your motel/hotel maids.

They work incredibly hard to clean up after us and, of all hotel staff, they are tipped the least. I know. I worked in this industry when I was a teen. The ONLY tip I ever received was from Barbara Feldon (Get Smart fame), and she handed me five bucks way back in the day. It was awesome. The bellhop who schleps your suitcase, the doorman, the room-service staff - we expect to tip them all for a tiny fraction of the work your maid does but she/he is often forgotten. Okay. Just my two-cents but it's the right thing to do and they will take care of you so please, take care of them.

Onward.......the continental breakfast was appreciated but it is carb HEAVY and highly processed, offering no protein choice, like a boiled egg, which would be great for those of us who need protein. However, for the price, I do understand and at least you can grab some coffee and a danish or piece of fruit. The food in Cayucos is some of the best so just head out and find what you're looking for at the Top Dog Coffee House (awesome food, too) two blocks down, same side, or the Sea Shanty across the street.

Room Tip: Always check for deals online as they DO offer some depending on the time of year like two nights fo...

We had a small suite and were very happy with it overall. Very fresh and clean throughout. Nice to be able to picnic in the room when we didn't want to eat out. Our dogs were happy, and the other dog owners were very considerate. Nice to have grass areas for the dogs, with poop bags and trash cans readily available. The breakfast offered was very basic, but happily, we had brought our own favorite coffee from home and were able to make it in the little kitchen area of the suite. The biggest negative was the bedding. Polyester sheets with no mattress pad just didn't make for comfortable sleep - sweaty and then chilly... I didn't expect premium linens, but cotton sheets and a mattress pad would have made a big difference. The extra dog blankets were a nice touch.

This is a good spot. It is clean, the rooms are spacious, the management is friendly and accomodating, and the breakfast is more than adequate. There is enough itchenette area to utilize for complete meals. Beds are clean and comfortable, noise is mimimal. The location is a little farther from the ocean than it seemed on the map, and I would likely stay closer next time, or better yet, in Morro Bay. However, this place is great and as advertised. If you are staying in Cayucos, this is a nice spot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the breakfast room.

Selected this inn because of (1) low price compared to other hotels in Cayucos and (2) high ratings from previous visitors.
We were not disappointed.
Wife and I share a suite - we reserved a king single and were upgraded free of charge. Very comfortable and clean. Very walkable to downtown restaurants. We will definitely stay there again when we go back.

The Cayucos Inn was perfect for a weekend getaway. Very clean and comfy. Since they are pet friendly, they even have peep holes at pet level in each door. Loved the kitchenette area with the extra sink and storage. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is minimal, but we brought our own food so was not an issue.
