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... More

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... More

I am so happy that we came across this wonderful property on Trip Advisor. We were looking for somewhere near San Simeon to stay during our honeymoon road trip on Highway 1 and the Back Bay Inn couldn't have been more perfect (the drive to Hearst Castle took just over 30 minutes). We chose room #2 but I can imagine... More

I cannot think of a better place on the central coast to go hide for a few days. This place is light years nicer than nearly anything you'll find in actual Morro Bay. There are few things better than staring out at the water from your comforable king size bed through the double doors to your private patio feet away... More

What's better than sitting on your king bed (where you had a great sleep), looking out at the bay (50' feet away) smelling fresh brewed coffee a short walk away (the walk is through an English garden of beautiful flowers) while catching the morning news. Then being lured back to the coffee house to have a home made frittata with... More

We stayed at the Back Bay Inn a few years ago, the gardens are even more beautiful now. The inn is a great stop while driving from Big Sur/Monterey to Santa Barbara.

What a wonderful stay. Very peaceful and loved the room with front and rear entrance. The rear entrance faces out onto the bay and each little porch area is covered with flora to provide a sense of privacy.
