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...

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...

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...

We stumbled across this great little inn several years ago when staying in Morro Bay. This was our 2nd stay at the Back Bay Inn and I hate to recommend it for fear the word will get out!! Baywood Park is a lovely hidden location on the coast.....we have fallen in love with the area and are considering a move...

The back bay inn is an understated pleasurable experience - the ground staff are so helpful and lovely.... the grounds are very clean and well kept- The cafe staff are amazing and a real plus to this establishment. I have found a few of the front desk staff to be a little slow- but otherwise everything is awesome. Can't beat...

This was our third visit here and will not be our last! It is the perfect place to get away from it all and just enjoy the scenery. We were only here for one night, as we were on our way home from Northern California, and needed a "rest stop" about halfway. We were in a garden room - very...

Stayed in Los Osos Ca a second night at a different B&B since we were not happy with the first one. Not sure which was worse. The Bay Back Inn B&B also was not what we were use to. This room was just like renting a hotel room, nothing special. The Inn keeper was very pleasant not like the so...

See the pictures - I cannot say enough about the Back Bay Inn. My friends love the Baywood which I am sure is lovely, but this place is RIGHT on the water! Sue & Larry (the Inn managers?). So over the top accommodating and nice. We honeymooned in Room #103. Yes it is the handicapped room. I am not graceful...
