My husband and I spent 4 days at "On the Beach", we had stayed there once before and loved it, and loved it once again! They do an amazing job with breakfast and Happy Hour and dessert---rooms and beds are very comfortable, However---as we are getting more "mature", the bathrooms are an issue. Toilets toooo low and the spa tubs...

Hello, gmamamjo, Thank you for visiting with us. We definitely believe that at least four nights is the way to do it, when visiting Cayucos. We will make sure to continue praising our wonderful staff for their devotion to our food and drink program. It is great to hear such positive food feedback from guests, given all the hard work...

This is a quaint place. Our room was very nice, sheets and blanket was so soft and the bed was comfy. Their breakfast servings were delicious and so are the dessert and appetizers. The staff were very nice. My only issue was the walls are too thin. If you use the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom - it is so...

I just stayed here for one night while on a road trip down route 1 and I honestly wish I stayed here longer! This place is absolutely unreal. The rooms are beautiful and very clean.

We enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this bed and breakfast. The rooms are furnished with antique bed frames and armoires and the ocean is right outside your door. The food prepared was gourmet quality - early breakfast, formal breakfast, hourderves with local wine and beer, and dessert. Our only complaint is the 90's jetted tub/shower combo in every room. The...

I've stayed at this lovely BB before and always enjoy it's loveliness. The food is spectacular. The staff warm and welcoming. HOWEVER, upon returning home I discovered I had left my iPhone plug and long cord plugged into the wall in our room. I distinctly remember it being left. I called immediately (late in the afternoon) and was told it...

We loved everything about this place. The chefs are amazing. Don't miss any breakfast or happy hour. The bedding was fantastic. We took probably six baths in three days in the huge tub. It stormed our first night and washed up sea glass, which we became obsessed with.

It was my birthday weekend, so we splurged a little. WOW, was it worth it! Background for me; we have family in Cayucos, so we have stayed at nearly every hotel in town (seriously, there are probably 11 hotels and I've stayed at 9 of them.) We've stayed at the budget hotels and a couple of the high dollar hotels,...

Quiet, sleepy, charming town... and this is certainly the best of the options. Very cute place and nice size rooms. Beds were amazing, the sheets were unbelievably soft. And breakfast was delicious. So why the 3 stars?? 2 reasons: 1. We paid full price, so at $300ish a person it's a fortune for where you're staying. In contrast we're staying...
