A wonderful place to stay. Very friendly and personal at check-in. Very dog friendly. I loved the deck and patio and made some good dog friends there. Morro Bay is a very dog friendly town and we had an excellent fish dinner with other dog owners at a local restaurant. There are tons of restaurants and shops within a short dog walk. The rooms are smallish but very comfortable. Our room was quiet and we slept great, with the gentle sound of gulls to wake us. There were so many nice touches: lots of plush towels and supplies, a bag of dog goodies, freshly baked bread in the "galley", original art everywhere. The location is great. The Inn was a refreshing change from the cookie cutter franchise offerings.

We stopped in Morro Bay to split up our drive from Los Angeles to Carmel. The distance was perfect for a stop. The town is pretty cool if you like fishing towns. Great shops and places to eat on the main street. The rock is pretty awesome as well. I am a professional photographer so I liked the photo options at the rock and around town on the waterfront.

The Bayfront Inn was exactly as advertised. Clean and close to the rock. The room was small and the walls are paper thin. If you stay there, request an upstairs room because any walking above will keep you up at night or wake you before you are ready in the morning. There was quite a long list of "rules" that were recited as we checked in as well. Maybe its because we were profiled with our two teenage boys? The shower steam set off the smoke alarm in my son's room at 11:00pm and there was no one in the office to take care of it so we had to endure the screeching until the steam subsided.

As I walked around the town, I noticed some other properties on the main street a short walk south. In hind sight, we would probably have liked those a bit better.

If you just want a clean bed for the night and then be gone, this works fine. Any more than a night and I would look at other alternatives.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs as they are quieter.

We explain to the guest what the guest will be signing when we hand them the receipt...1. No Smoking on or near premises. Quiet time is 10pm. We explain where everything is on site, like the ice machine, a microwave, where we serve breakfast, where to get the cinnamon buns in the morning, where the internet access code is located in the room, and how the bottled water, juices, snacks, and 5 piece fish and chips meal is on the house. Plus, we explain how to use the Digital TV clicker so that the guest will enjoy an expanded tv system. When parents travel with teens carrying skate boards we also explain how skateboard riding is not allowed on premises. Same goes for people traveling with pets, we explain that pets must be on leash and may not do duty on premises. We also make sure that we have the right amount of guests in the room. Yes, its a lot of stuff to listen to, but for many guests, our front desk rap is appreciated; and not considered profiling. There is someone on premises 24 hrs a day plus a phone in the room that connects to the front office. Front Desk was not aware of any problem with a "screeching" and would have deffinitely heard something when this guest's room was next to the office. We have never had this complaint before or since, but would like to have been told about it when this guest checked out so we could immediately test the smoke detector. Thanks for telling us now, thru this review process. We want our guests to be happy with their stay. People book our little place because of our low pricing for our location, our clean rooms, and our guest perks. We declare our room size and most of our guests are thrilled to have found us.

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Extremely dog friendly, with goodie bag for dog (dog blanket, dog treats, poo bags, dog toy, list of local dog-friendly restaurants and stores), plus dog food bowl and water setup in the room. Rooms were clean and well kept, but had the thinnest walls that I have encountered in years (could hear the people next door and above us talking and walking across their rooms). However, very good location for hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room in a corner, so you decrease the number of neighbors - walls are very thin.

The hotel is very dog friendly. They provided a blanket, treats, and water and food bowls in the room. There were several dogs staying at the same time as us, so our doggie got to make new friends. It is the closest hotel to the rock and beach area which was great because our Lab loves the beach. The rooms are small, but are exactly what are shown in the pictures/descriptions. Everything is very clean and the staff is all very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms on the bottom floor have a fine view of the harbor, and there's a raised patio if you want to see it better - or just walk across the street and you are standing at the harbor/bay

Earlier reviews have pretty much said it all.
- Across the street from the harbor facing the rock (it's the closest hotel to the rock)
- Pleasant, very helpful hoteliers
- Clean rooms
- Lots of freebies such as cinnamon buns, fish & chips, trolley passes, plus in-room salt-water taffy, juice, and bottled water.
- Galley with microwave and fresh fruit that remains open 24 hrs.

Yes, the rooms are small, but that is somewhat compensated for with some charming outdoor seating terraces. If I had a dog, I probably would have liked it even better :-)

Room Tip: Room #20 is best if you are not bringing a dog. It has a jacuzzi tub and is right above the motel office and has a window facing the rock.
