My husband and I have stayed here 4 or 5 times in the last 10 years (usually for our anniversary). We were a bit disappointed this time. The first few times you could order breakfast to be delivered to your room (very nice!) but not any longer. The last time we stayed you went downstairs to the restaurant next door and were served a substantial breakfast. This time the innkeeper gave us vouchers for a small breakfast across the street. (I understand on the weekends breakfast is available next door). The room was clean (although in need of glass in one of the fireplace doors, hence no fire). I would still recommend a stay here, great view of the bay. A little sad that it isn't as nice as it used to be.

My husband and I stay at the Baywood every year when we visit family. We always look forward to seeing a different room, enjoying the view of the bay, and the extras included, such as soda and snacks in the room, a wine hour. The Baywood is in a nice quiet area. A great escape.

About our 4th or 5th stay there over the years. Really needs some maintenance and TLC. We stayed in "Quimper" room starting Christmas Eve. We brought a nice champagne to chill, found the in-room refrigerator did not work (instead had a bucket of ice inside it). The shower valve very difficult to pull up without entire bathtub spout trying to pull away from the wall. On our last night, outside temp in high 30's, wall furnace would not come on at any setting (we used gas fireplace for heat). Also, the bathroom fan and heater are on the same switch (though one of 3 wall switches did nothing) resulting in blasting heat when exhaust fan turned on. Room cleaners did bare minimum, left a full trash bag and some obviously empty boxes on floor next to the dining table. You can hear pretty much everything in adjacent rooms, but we knew that already. We do like quiet Baywood Park, though. or a very good seafood meal, try The Sea Chest on Moonstone Drive in Cambria (get there early- no reservations and cash or check only, with an ATM inside. I got there at about 5:10 PM and was already about 30th in line. Many people "tailgated" in line with their own wine and quite a few sat by a nice outdoor fire ring while someone held a spot in line.

We stayed in Country Cottage I believe room #103.? It was relatively clean except the couch was pretty old and there was loose dirt under the cushions. The heater was not working in the room which we told the staff about. They said they would have housekeeping look at it which they said they did and it still did not work. Not bad for when we were there but when it gets cold people will freeze! Also the bedroom window leaks air badly which we let the inn keeper know about. Location was good and breakfast and wine/chips social hour was nice.

my sister has a mouse in her room...... I fell on the stairs which were dark and wet and when I said something about it, the comment was met with a shrug and no concern.

We stayed two nights, ground floor, Cape Cod room. Very casual, comfortable, clean. Water backed up a little in the tub when taking shower. Nothing major but we did inform manager when we left. Love the setting, view of the 'bay'. Received vouchers for breakfast. Choice of two 'restaurants' within walking distance, for eat-in or food to take back to room. Neither the office or restaurant/café open early which is different. Overall liked it a lot and will definitely return!

I love this place! The room was great, located within walking distance of several restaurants and a bar with live music. Right next to the water surrounded by a residential area. So, no cars or tons of people out to wake you up or bother you. Just a quick ten to fifteen minute drive to beaches. Absolutely amazing and we plan to go back very soon.

Hotel was beautiful.. Rooms were clean, big, comfortable we had the Sante fe room which was a 2 bed/ 2 bath with a fireplace . Only complaint was we were given breakfast vouchers for 3 places.. However 2 Places were never open for breakfast durning our stay... And the Mexican pmCe that was supposed to do wind with chips and salsa every night never was open durning our stay the office would sit out bottles of wine in the office. Not quite the same :/

We spent our 17th anniversary here and absolutely loved it. The room was charming with lovely decor and real oil paintings. We could have stayed in the room all day and just enjoyed the excellent view of the Back Bay. It was very comfortable and quiet, cozy by the fireplace. We enjoyed walking in the quiet little community with lovely gardens that go right up to the Bay waters. We will be back when we find the first excuse to go. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, Bill & Karen
