Our room was very small which isn't a real big deal but it rained and we kind of got a little cabin fever feeling. Staff was very accommodating. Room was clean. Good location for walks. Restaurant next door was a great breakfast choice.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 February 2016 via mobile

We loved our stay at the Bayfront Inn in Morro Bay! They love dogs and Jayne at the front desk made us feel so welcome! The room was small but very clean and comfortable! The continental breakfast was delicious. The location is perfect, right across the street from the water and "The Rock". Right next door is a fabulous little...

We were delighted when we accidentally found this small boutique hotel located in the best spot in Morro Bay! This place is a gem and it is located directly across the street from the rock. You can walk to the town and the beach! The staff was very accommodating. The rooms were immaculate. They even have Kourig coffee machines inside...

Morro Bay must be the worst value-for-money destination in the US. Most of the motels (and I mean motels because there isn't a real hotel among the bunch) are below average. We've stayed in almost all of them over the past few years. Many are not well maintained and not very clean. The Bayfront is just OK but I'm giving...

My husband and I took one of our dogs who has had a rough start in life. We decided to give her a weekend without her siblings, and give her all the attention that she wanted. The place is quaint and in my opinion we had one of the best rooms, as Morro Rock was front and center from our...

Nice view of the water and quiet location. Make sure to get the ocean view!! Pool is nice too. Restaurant is a little pricey and there's lots of other spots in town to eat. Rooms nice. Nothing over the top.

This place was really cute! Jayne went above and beyond with the little stuff. I was travelling with my cat, she provided a little pet goody bag including snacks, a toy, a blanket and food dishes. In the room there was a bowl of locally made salt water taffy, two bottles of water in my fridge and two juice boxes...

Thanks - We are like the little engine that could - we really do try hard to please. Some things are out of our control - like room size.

This place is lovely! We found it on bringfido.com and the reviews were all amazing. They were not lying! It's small, the rooms were small but its all cute and very clean. Things we loved: welcome packages for our animals complete with little blankies, bones, toys, and doggy pick up bags. They also had food and water bowls waiting in...

Thank you. We love it when people give detailed reviews - we are a 60s little retro place in a perfect location - keep our small rooms clean! Thanks again and come back.

There really isn't much to see in Morro Bay except the rock, so I wouldn't splurge on a fancy hotel. Unfortunately when we arrived it was super fog and nearly dark at 6. The hotel was super quiet and the check in desk was already closed. We had to knock on the door. The lady was very nice though and...

We have no control over the fog and when the sun sets...and it does get dark at 5:15. Our check in time is clearly stated up to 6pm - its on our website and throughout the paperwork...but that doesn't mean that we aren't here 24 hrs to help our guests. Morro Bay is a quiet little place but the sea...

Old school charm, right down in the Embarcadero close to the water. Great spot for a walk either out to the Rock or into the action. You can walk to Dorn's (classic dining), the Otter Rock (nightlife) and much much more. And the free cinnamon rolls are awesome.
