The staff was very nice. Got a deal on a website including vouchers cinnamon buns at coffee shop next door, fish dinner at local restaurant and wine tasting. Our dog received a welcome basket with a toy and gourmet homemade food. Smallish room, clean and nice enough. The only problem with the motel and Morro Bay, which proclaim themselves dog...

We are very pet friendly with some rules. Pets must be leashed while on premises at all times. Dogs may not do their duty on premises. We ask that dog owners take their dog to vacant areas ajacent to us to do their business. The bugs that this guest encountered was off premises and does not reflect us.

Facebook just popped up a photo of my husband and me in front of rock across the street from Bayfront Inn. Reminded me to let people know what a great choice it is for a weekend in Morro Bay. Such a charming, clean, sweet hotel. The owners go all out with a delicious breakfast, even fresh cinnamon buns, plus a...

Thanks, our rooms are quaint, cozy, small, European style - and the perfect 60s retreat by the Sea.

Good location but extremely small room. Would not recommend if you plan to spend any time relaxing in room. If you have a lot of luggage be sure to request first floor as there is no .elevator. No place to set things in bathroom or room. Dog friendly.

We are a retro motel built in the 60s, remodeled. We don't fit the needs of everyone but we do try to accommodate all our guests, when able. Our rooms are small, well appointed, super clean and our guests get loads of perks. We are at the sea and in one of the best locations - our guests don't stay...

Arriving to the location is quick and easy. There's shopping and lots of places to eat near by and walking distance. Check in was easy. The staff was amazing and handed us voucher for free food near by. Breakfast in the morning is great also. The room was a bit small but very cozy. Bed was super comfortable. Room cleanliness...

Owners super hospitable, clean room, wifi for working remotely, and walking distance to catch some surf (husband) and tasty local restaurants. Lucky enough to have a room facing bay (room 20). Will be back

Whilst this accommodation is basic and doesn't offer a view of the beach/seafront it is very comfortable and spacious and is extremely good value. We got our room for $80, which was the cheapest on our trip throughout California.

Another wonderful stay at the Bayfront Inn for the annual Lighthouse Century weekend. Rooms are small and with a bicycle in the room it was even smaller. Next time I'll make sure to ask for a larger room - or maybe a smaller bed. Lee (Lea?) and Jane were very accommodating as always, although we did get reprimanded for being...

This is my second stay with the Bayfront Inn. Well, nothing stays the same....the help is friendly and quite helpful but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. It's old, plain and simple. The room is small and needs work. Mini blinds and blackout curtains that don't close are outdated. A chair was added to the room which was...

We offer minimalist furniture in our rooms because our rooms are small. Each room has an overhead fan and a window fan. Our rates are not as quoted but see for yourself. We are the most affordable seaside.

Stayed here last night - compared to the other hotels on our trip this was probably least value for money. Although you get free cinnamon rolls (which were delicious), free fish and chip supper and extras in room e.g. Water, snacks etc the cost of the room was pretty pricey. Also the room is very small and as has been...
