What a delightful property. The property is not new, but very well maintained. We stayed in room 102. An awesome room. Sitting area, huge vanity area and then a separate bedroom. Everything was very clean. The view from the room and on the patio was amazing. Beautiful sunset pictures. And one more thing, the best water pressure of any hotel...

We been going to this inn for years and always have been hesitant to put it in the public eye but it is a great place in a quiet town with wonderful views and plenty to do and see close by. The included breakfast is at a local cafe (actually in the parking lot) but we understand the owner of...

Thank you for your great review of our Inn and the surrounding areas. We are pleased that you enjoyed the rooms in the Main Building with the views over the water and the gardens. Our evening wine reception is always popular and when we see you next, we hope you will enjoy our new restaurant, the Blue Heron!

We were headed to Morro Bay and friends of friends suggested this place, and we were more than impressed. Spending a weekend there we were impressed with the little "village" spending time in each little restaurant. The hotel is nothing fancy but the location & view were superb, and a short drive to Morro.

Thank you for the great review of our Inn. We do indeed have two rooms with balconies with the lower rooms having their own patios in the Main Building and all the rooms overlook the lawn, water and mountains in the distance.

My husband and I happened to stay at the Inn on our wedding anniversary trip. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by friendly and lovely Sharon (hope I got the name right) who showed us to our room.

Back Bay Inn is a wonderful little property located off the beaten path in Los Osos, adjacent to Moro Bay. Situated right on the eponymous Back Bay, it's views of waterfront and nearby nature preserve are blissfully calm and quiet. Different kinds of waterbirds frolic in an endless parade as the day progresses and the tide ebbs and flows.

We've been staying here since before their remodel - so more than 20 years. It is still hands down my favorite place to stay on the central coast of California. The view is always changing.
