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
Please leave tv instructions in the room. We arrived after check in and would never have guessed that the one channel needed to be on 3. Also - for late check in - in your instructions explain that the key is for the door knob and not the deadbolt. We had trouble getting in - finally figured it out.
This was our second time staying at the Baywood Inn. Love the room and that it is off the beaten path. We've always enjoyed our stay and our room. The only downfall this time was that we left trash outside of our room and it was never picked up during our two day stay.
We really enjoyed our stay and would do it again. Maria, the on-site Manager is very personable and made the evening get together a lot of fun. For the breakfast you have to go across the street but with the nice weather and good food it worked out fine.
We spent two nights at the inn during a visit to central California, and were very pleased with the accommodations. The room was beautiful and had an amazing view of the bay. We loved the fireplace and quiet location.
Made reservations here for our last summer weekend before school started which was the weekend before labor day. This was great because it was not crowded. The location was right by the lake, restaurants were all just a few steps away. The staff & locals were very friendly and accommodating. The whole area had a very good vibe. We did our walks and meal times in a very relaxing environment. My family will definitely be coming back.
After previously living in San Luis Obispo for about seven years in the 90's, went back to the Central Coast. I never ever visited Baywood Park while I was there. What a surprise! The Baywood Inn B&B did not disappoint. Super friendly staff, lots of treats, and loved the option to try two area restaurants within a one minute walking distance for the included breakfast. For such a small town, there are several eating options within walking distance. Very interesting history about the structure and how creative to turn it into a B&B. Had no expectations and left super satisfied. If I ever come back to the Central Coast, definitely would return.
Great location and nice ocean views from the California room. The breakfast options were disappointing as there was only a limited menu for guests from a nearby cafe. No good options for dinner nearby so we went either into Morro Bay or to San Luis Obispo.
We needed some time away to do little other than relax. We were greeted with enthusiasm, the cottage was lovely, lots of nature at hand, directly across the street from the bay, breakfast cafe across the street with delicious meals....couldn't have asked for anything more.
As I was unpacking my suitcase, I found an extra set of keys to room 106. I will send them back via US Mail. Thank you again for very pleasant stay. Our room was much nicer than we expected. We will be glad to have another visit and stay at your Baywood Inn.
We wanted to get away from the heat and started looking around Morro Bay. Found the Baywood inn had a one room that fit our schedule. Very nice room with a separate bedroom and a beautiful view! Very cozy area and a nice coffee shop across the street. Great base to set out on all our site seeing, wine tasting and hiking on the bluffs. I plan to use the again the next time we want to visit the area! I would recommend them to any couples that need to get away!
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
I believe this is our 7 th stay. This time for 3 nights. (Too short) We have been very impressed with Kaleidscpoe for every stay. We sent our middle daughter here for her honey moon and they loved it so much they came for their anniversary as well. We have had all three daughters stay with us when they could. This is our #1 favorite place to get away with so much to do within an hour to great places. Thank you!!
Stayed at Kaleidoscope during a weekend golf trip. The courses I played were within 10 minutes of the B&B, whereas any hotel I could find would have been a 30+ minute drive! Was a great place in a perfect spot!
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!
