My husband and I checked into the Back Bay Inn for one night. They have a two night minimum but the owner offered us room 107 and waived the $50 one night penalty due to some remodeling being done in 107. This beautiful little gem is right on the bay and the rooms overlook a serene, peaceful setting that is conducive to relaxation and rest. The room and bath were small but with the large private patio it was more the adequate. My only complaint was the bed. The mattress appeared brand new but it was not comfortable and the headboard rattled even with the slightest movement. The pillows are too thick to be comfortable. However the location is stunning and the staff great! Breakfast vouchers for the little café next door are a real plus. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet retreat for two with easy access to great walks, day trips and food.

Room Tip: first floor rooms have the biggest patios

Beautiful location, amenities include complimentary breakfast at the cafe, morning coffee, evening wine. I looked forward to starting each day with that cup of coffee and the sunrise.......unbeatable combination.

We have stayed at the Back Bay Inn several times in the past few years. It is located close to Morro Bay and several of the other nearby beach towns. The rooms are very nice and during the winter months we like an upstairs room as it has a fireplace. The gardens are lovely. Also included in the room is a wine reception every evening and a breakfast every morning.

Room Tip: During the summer a ground level room is nice because you can just walk out to the chairs outside and enjoy the view. During the fall/winter the corner upstairs room has a fireplace and is very cozy.

From the start of our weekend the Back Bay Inn was great! The customer service was friendly and accommodating especially since we arrived late in the evening. Our room was large and comfortable. We just loved the beautiful grounds and location.
It's a gem of a spot. Don't miss the cafe as the food was delicious. It's nice to know we've found a place we come back to time and time again!!! Just hope it's soon..:)))) love love love the Back Bay Inn.

I stayed here recently while attending a wedding. It was the perfect location for daytime jaunts (15-30 minutes to Morro Bay, Cayucos beach, SLO) and quiet, peaceful nights in. Service was impeccable; the staff was friendly and welcoming and had chocolates and fruit at the front desk as we signed in. The upper room with the balcony facing the bay was clean and well-furnished (it even had an ample sitting area). I also had breakfast and lunch outside on the wood deck a couple of times and found it to be utterly peaceful. I used the certificates for breakfast at the diner and thought it was a good add on from the Inn. There is a good little Mexican restaurant (Maya) right in front of the Inn if you truly did not want to venture far from your room. I highly recommend this Inn and would definitely stay here again if I find myself in this area for some reason.

Room Tip: Upper room facing bay has balcony and beautiful scenery
