“Perfect!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The locations is excellent! Walk to Morro Rock one direction or down the Embarcadero the other. The extras were the best we've ever had at a hotel.....cinnamon rolls each morning; basket in the room with taffy, popcorn and hot chocolate; mini refrigerator with water and juice; etc. Staff was great. Sadly, we happened to be there the one weekend in months that it rained and didn't get to enjoy the outdoor areas as much so that will be something for next time. We had room 12 which was perfect for the view. The rooms are small but neat and very clean. We will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd level have a perfect view of the harbor and Morro Rock.

Thank you for your honest review. Hope you get to come back to Morro Bay when the weather is better, but in any weather it is a wonderful place.

Small but clean room. Clearly an older place. We slept well just across the street from the water. This is a reasonably price place to sleep right in the heart of the Embarcadero. If you want fancy or new look elsewhere.

Room Tip: A rock view room is worth the few extra dollars.

Yes, we are right on the Embarcadero. One of the older hotels here, we keep it well maintained. Glad you slept well on our new beds and we pay a lot of attention to cleanliness. Come again.

Bay Front Inn is our quaint little home in Morro Bay! Small but comfy! And the view from the room is AWESOME! Watching sunset behind the Rock and people watch while lounging at the porch!! And the free cinnamon every morning from Frankie & Lola's next door is a +++!! We added a zebra ducky to hotel's collection!! Jayne & the staff are the best!! We will definitely go back here!! This is a late review but would like to share our experience. We were there on President's day week. The convenience of leaving the car behind and just walk around the area is the added attraction!!

Thanks for this review....AND your duck contribution to our rubber duck pond - hay how did you like the almond brittle? How much weight did you gain from the cinnamon buns and the snacks in your room --- just kidding. Come back soon!

We stayed here over president's day weekend. Very friendly personal service. The rooms were recently remodeled & though small, were very comfortable. The location was right across from the big rock & within walking distance to many restaurants.

I would never have picked the Bayfront Inn,if it wasn't for the other reviews I had read.But we took the plunge and were very pleased with the result.This is a motel,not a resort,and it is everything a motel should be.The staff are excellent and very friendly.The rooms are a reasonable size,but more than adequate,as we only showered and slept there.There was a fridge,TV,free WiFi,which was very good,a bowl of treats by the bed,water and juice in the fridge,and the big plus,spotlessly clean.The location could not be better in Morro Bay,close to the water,restaurants,bars,cafes.Some of the wonderful bonuses were the breakfast in "The Galley" in the morning,this we did not expect,a free wine tasting at a near by wine bar,a free cinnamon bun from the bakery next door,in the morning,a pleasant treat as we headed off to Santa Barbara.
If you are heading to Morro Bay,you will not be disappointed,if you looking for a clean,friendly and helpful motel to stay at.

Morro Bay is a fishing village halfway between LA and SF. It is also a center for surf, seals, otters, whales and all kinds of bird life. The mix of tourism and fishing make this town vibrant and interesting to visit. The Bayfront Inn has the optimum location. The closest hotel to the beaches and at the sametime located between the two best restaurants: Giovanni Seafood for fresh steamed Dungeness carb and the Dockside Fish market where they will prepare the catch of the day by local fishermen, along with very cool jazz from local musicians.

The Bayfront has postage-stamp sized rooms, but the owners have a heart the size of Texas. Their specialty is distribution of coupons to guide you to the best spots in town. So you get to experience sensational cinnamon rolls for breakfast, Giovanni's fresh seafood, and a lot of really good inside advice about where to go to experience the best of local specialties. While the rooms are small, all the charm is outside, so we did not mind.

The management keeps the price very reasonable, The breakfast is ok (eggs, cereal, good coffee and fresh fruit) and the location is great. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2nd floor for a view ot the rock.

Thank you for enjoying Morro Bay. Our rooms are small, clean and cozy. The weather while you were here was perfect for your exploration and painting ( like us on facebook and please post some of your Morro Bay paintings). Glad you could be with us for such a long period of time.

Wonderful little Inn, right on the Harbor, view of Morro Rock. We stayed with our 3 dogs, they had blankets, bowls, and doggie goodie bags. The room is immaculate as are the entire premises. The management is very accommodating, helpful and friendly. You can walk anywhere and many of the local places are pet friendly. I would definitely recommend this Inn to anyone. The rooms are small but have everything you need. We have already booked our next vacation there!

Room Tip: there are a variety of rooms, make sure they know your needs. Very accommodating
