Bayfront Inn is a waterfront property where every guest is important and special. Located directly across from the harbor, our property enjoys unobstructed views of the bay, world famous Morro Rock, and the chatter of the sea lions and gulls. Your comfort and our service is our greatest concern. Our motel is 1960s era, offering loads of character and local history. It is a short walk to all shopping, restaurants, beaches and entertainment. (Call us to make sure your personal needs can be accommodated by our older property.)
**For Bayfront Inn content regarding Special Needs services:
Prior to checking in we ask that the Guest inform us of special needs or services required. (1) The Bayfront Inn provides ACCESS to a wireless internet but we do not provide the technology hardware as this would be an undue financial burden. The Brochure in every room offers the wireless code, in large print, and our front desk personnel will assist all guests to access the wireless system on the guest’s device. (2) There is no Elevator access to the 2nd floor rooms. Ours is a walk up motel built in the 1960s. (3) The 2 ADA modified rooms that meet a minimum standard per inspection are located on the bottom floor; one is a standard size room with 1 queen bed, the other a bit larger room offering 1 king bed. Room #s 8 and 9 have been ADA modified except for showers as this modification was not financially feasible. (4) Our Televisions offer Closed Caption access. Front desk personnel will assist the guest to turn on this feature. (5) Should you require a hearing impaired clock , please come to the front desk. (6) Of the 3 outdoor sitting areas one is not wheelchair accessible and is unable to be modified as it is financially not feasible. We offer front desk assistance to the visual and hearing impaired to access the wireless system on the guest’s personal device. If you have any questions please give us a call at 805-772-5607.
*** Room size and Maximum Occupancy :
Our rooms are 1960 motel cozy. We declare the size of our rooms throughout this website as well as on 3rd party booking websites. If your are unsure about booking one of our rooms due to its size, call us first.
Standard rooms are approximately 11.5X11.5 square feet (not including the bathroom) with minimal furnishings and one chair in the room. Delux rooms are larger and offer a seating area. All rooms offer 1 bed type, either a King size or a Queen size bed, except for our Economy room (#18) that offers one full size bed (which is smaller than a Queen size bed). There is no room for a roll-away. Because of the smaller size of our rooms our Occupany is limited to 2 persons over the age of 3 years old + 1 child under the age of 3 years old.
We don’t want you to be charged a cancellation fee in the event you cancel your reservation because of the room size. If you show up with more than the occupancy limits, we can deny service and you will be charged a late cancellation fee.

If we are able to rebook your room(s), a full, or partial refund may be made. If you are booking using one of our Special package rate coupons and you cancel one or more of the days as required to receive the special package rate the cost of the room will revert to the regular price for that room for the time you have occupied.
If you shorten your stay, all discounts will be reversed and reapplied per the length of stay. If you book your stay on a 2 night minimum and you shorten your stay, you will be responsible for the cost of the one night stay you are vacating unless we can re-rent the room.
