Back Bay Inn is the Central California Coast's most romantic getaway location. It is small, private and located right on the water at the quiet south end of Morro Bay in Baywood Park. Located only 16 miles east of the San Luis Obispo Airport and 34 miles south of Hearst Castle. All 16 rooms at the Inn command spectacular and inspiring views of the bay with mirror-like waters and the beautiful coastal mountains of Montana de Oro State Park. Your room will feature either a cozy fireplace or a semi private view lanai and will provide the ideal backdrop for a perfect romantic vacation.

We traveled a little over an hour from our home in Goleta to a perfectly serene romantic get away. This is our second time staying at the Back Bay Inn and we look forward to many more. We took a walk on the beach and then joined some other guests at the hotel for early evening complimentary glasses of wine on the glass enclosed observation deck. Our room #211 was perfect: clean, fireplace, comfortable bed and amazing view of the bay. This was a Saturday night stay and the hotel, although looked to be busy, was very quiet. A drive through the Montana del Oro state park was a perfect way to end a short but sweet get away.

warm and cozy

We have stayed at Back Bay Inn a couple of times and will certainly be back. Rooms are very comfortable and cozy when the fog rolls in. The views are lovely and the surrounding area has much to explore. We have fully enjoyed our stays here.

INCREDIBLE- would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Our stay here was fabulous. The service was great, the room was clean, great value for the price. The view was so beautiful that we locked ourselves out in our hurry to get outside and enjoy it! Perfect place to catch some R and R, very peaceful and serene. Golf and a beautiful park nearby.
