Needed light bulbs in bathroom. Rather dim , for us old folks. Make up mirrors would really be great The view was very nice.Breakfast was outstanding!

Surprisingly sweet

4.6 on August 20, 2014

Our trip was a bit last minute and I found a vacancy at the Baywood Inn, in their last available room, the Queen Victoria Suite. It was very sweet with Victorian decor. There were modern conveniences (blow dryer, microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker) all tucked away and out of sight. The hotel provided bottled water, some soda's, hot chocolate in the room without charge. The sitting room had a fireplace. Everything was very clean (which I'm a bit paranoid about) We had wine in the evening and breakfast was nice. The hotel is off the beaten path, but is a good place for someone not looking to be in the middle of the action.

Baywood Inn Stay

Quaint but OK....


4.4 on August 17, 2014

Whenever I visit SLO/Los Osos, I always stay at Baywood Inn. Each room is uniquely charming and romantic. In each room there is a sweet guest book filled with adventures and experiences. There are some rooms very close to the office but there is still privacy. Try to stay on the second floor to insure a beautiful bay view and privacy. Each room has a very comfortable bed, complimentary snacks and beverages, cable and wifi. The rooms usually contain a living room with another room off to the back for the bed. Our nickname for this lovely inn is "bed with no breakfast" inn, however you are provided with breakfast vouchers. Also, the front office always has delicious cookies. My only issue is that there is no sort of loyalty program. I only stay at this inn when I visit several times a year for multiple nights.

Good for the money

Loved the area! The option of getting breakfast at Back Bay Cafe or the Mexican Resturant next door was awesome! Room was a tad dated and there was mold in the bathtub. No air conditioning, but it did not damper the great time we had exploring Paso Robles wine region and Central Coast

Just what we needed!

This was just the vacation we needed after a summer of doctor's visits and before I went back to teaching for the year. My husband and I had the most relaxing time and the staff was most accommodating to our needs.

Last night of Honeymoon

3.2 on August 10, 2014

We were pleased overall by our experience and already referred you to another romantic couple. Good value compared to many other similar accommodations over our 19 day honeymoon. Decor was kitschy (we were in the country cottage room) but not sickly so. We took it as cute but some may find it outdated or forced. I think other rooms fit our aesthetic better but were not available. The large size to the room was wonderful and we enjoyed our fireplace. The trust you have with leaving extra amenities available for the taking upstairs was also appreciated. And your location was killer - what a cute bay you have :) I didnt want to leave. Two negatives experienced though: Upon arrival at 6:45pm, the manager (badge said Maria?) was MIA. We pressed the intercom and she didn't hear us but we sure could hear her singing while vacuuming. I'm happy she has fun at work but it was unprofessional in the context that we could hear it. We also tried calling to see if she would hear incoming business but that didn't work. 10 minutes of waiting until she realized anyone was in the lobby was too long - and since we had dinner reservations in San Luis Obispo at 8pm, any further wait would have caused problems. Once we were noticed she gave an explanation but was seemingly unapologetic. I am not upset - but if you can't hear waiting customers over necessary functions of the hotel (like vacuuming), you need another system. And you definitely need to have a sense of urgency - guests should come first. The other had to do with breakfast. I know you have a partnership with the cafe so it wasn't really on you, but the vegetarian options were very limited and they had run out of items. As I said before, experience was overall great. Just a few things need to be tweaked. We will return.

My short stay was very pleasant. i liked the room -- clean and nicely decorateaad, the location -- quiet, not touristy, the welcome -- very gracious and helpful, and the breakfast across the street at the little outdoor cafe on the bay.

Hidden gem on Central Coast!

5 on August 05, 2014

Baywood Inn was the last stop on our Central Coast vacation, and it turned out we did save the best for last. The location in Los Osos was lovely. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We stayed in the Emerald Bay room. It was very nicely decorated, extremely clean, and had a wonderful view of the bay. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room, as well as granola bars and microwave popcorn! At 5pm, wine was served next door at La Palapa, a Mexican restaurant. The cabernet was delightful and the pours were very generous. In the morning we had breakfast at La Palapa as well and our food was delicious and free with the voucher we received from Baywood Inn. This was one of the best experiences we ever had in a bed and breakfast and we will definitely go back to the Baywood Inn!
