“Delightful 2 nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Found this little place on tripadvisor. I would not have thought to get a place with such a cool view at the last minute. The weather happened to have been idyllic so our entire stay was wonderful. When we talked to Lee, at the desk and Jane later in the stay, they only served to assert that I will not hesitate in calling there first for our next stay in Morro Bay. Both ladies were filled with a sweet charm, very informative about the area and have been there long enough to have many coupons for their guests to fully experience the fun of Morro Bay.
Yes, the room was small, but we got the Jacuzzi tub room, which was absolutely decadent. The bed was perfection for us and the little bowl of sweet treats and coffees demonstrated a true gift of hospitality.
One thing I did find a tad difficult was the barking seals. They seemed to sleep during the day and bark their messages to one another across the water through most of the night. I was simply wishing that they had been nightingales. (winks)

Thanks so much for staying here and for your positive comments on Leigh and Jayne. ( Me, being Jayne!) We work hard to please.
There's nothing we can do about those darn seals, which do add charm when we aren't trying to sleep! But, we do have ear plugs for our guests, some of our guests take them and say its for the seals when actually.....haha, I'll leave it at that. Come again!

Best location in Morro Bay, wonderful friendly people. Room small but adequate and clean, with superb view. Many freebies to enjoy, especially the wine tasting. Coffee Pot good for brekkies, Frankie and Lolas very busy. Want to go back again now! Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

We spent a night here but we could have stayed a full week.
Wonderful view, very clean, high level bedding, warm welcome at the office, good breakfast.
This is a perfect location, just park your car and visit the town, everything is so close, the rock, the restaurants, shops ....
The night was very quiet and we had a great great night

I would just have to copy everything Amy S. had to say word for word. We only stayed for one night but we would definitely book again, for one night or longer.
The owners (?) were so friendly and accommodating. We called ahead to say we were going to be late and they made everything so easy. The room was all set, with the light on.
Plus all the little extras, pleasant surprise! Personal touches like these you don't find in big hotels.
We arrived late and when we opened the blind in the a.m., there was the Rock! Perfect.
And don't forget breakfast at Frankie & Lola's, it was excellent!
Again, a true gem!

The rooms were small, but very clean & very quaint! What a gem! Great location to everything. And VERY friendly folks both at the inn and throughout town. Lots of little extras within the rooms! Wonderful touch!
We will return!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights with our Basset hound Duke...the room was a bit small for all of us, but so clean and the bed was so comfortable. When we arrived, we found a 'doggie bag' on the bed with Duke's name on it, containing a blanket, doggie biscuits, a squeaky toy and the all important poopy bags! We enjoyed the free fish and chips and cinnamon buns - the staff was wonderful and we highly recommend the Bayfront Inn. Duke misses visiting his buddies (the harbor seals) but we promised we'll go back someday....

Being dog and cat owners and generally overall animal lovers, our pet policy is very inviting and makes sense to us - what we try to do here is give our guests the experiences we want when we travel. Its not an easy task but we are lucky we have a great team! Come again - with Duke!

For those travelling on a budget this is a good choice! It's very near all the main attractions and has a rock view with friendly staff. We were pleasantly surprised by the free fish and chips, wine tasting and cinnamon buns! The cafe next door does amazing breakfasts as well!

Thank you for your review. We try to make a stay as pleasant as possible and what we would want when we travel...Location, Cleanliness, and perks. I know that I want bottled water and snacks the minute I walk into a hotel room and my hubby desires fitted sheets - that's why our guests get what they get here. We walk that extra mile and treat our guests like family (the one's we like - haha). Come again.
