And you just never want to leave. Like going back in time, to stay in a tiny community, simply lovely, calm, and the noise is that of birds.... the tide comes in and the tide goes out, and you can watch it from your own patio, overlooking the garden. The rooms are very nice, clean, and the service is good....

Back Bay Inn is 15 minutes off 101 Hiway in Los Osos, CA. The Inn is on the Bay (not the ocean) and provided stunning vistas at sunrise and sunset. Breakfast at the Back Bay Cafe is excellent and the service and servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Montana de Oro is 2 miles away....

Thank you for your review and are so pleased that you enjoy all the attractions that we have in this area. The entire area, but especially the Inn, are very doggie friendly and we enjoy meeting all of the "dog" children that come to visit!

Absolutely Charming! Staff was warm and welcoming. Room cozy with beautiful bay view #5. Perfect for a valentine couple to relax in the adorondaks with glass of wine watching the tides, sunsets and bay. Enjoyed the Labyrinth and watching 2 on 2 volleyball at the open sand court. I overheard you can rent kayaks nearby. May try that next time....

On the southern edge of Morro Bay, right on the water. Inn appears to be from the 30s. Rooms are filled w old furniture, no table, and fairly small. With lousy water pressure in old bathrooms. But for peace, quiet, and beauty, you can't beat it. We brought our BIG Golden Doodle for 4 days and rented room 15 which...

We stayed for several days and realised that the photographs glamorise the reality. The room was pleasant and very clean, quiet and comfortable and ideal for a couple who wanted to just "get away from it all". Complimentary breakfast is provided at Back Bay Café (less than 50 yards away) but be aware that the menu for hotel guests is...
