We loved staying at the Inn at the Tides. While somethings were a little shabby, everything was spotless and very comfortable. Fluffy towels, robes, and pool towels, complimentary bottle of wine, real breakfast in a restaurant and discount on Monday or Tuesday dinner to the Tides restaurant added to the value. The view was amazing. We didn't mind walking down... More

We asked for an upstairs room, even though some downstairs rooms have a nice balcony, to have a clear view of the bay. Fantastic view. The room was huge, clean and had a real wood fireplace. For dining on site we had our choice of The Tides across the street or the slightly upscale Bay View near the lobby. We... More

We arrived on a Tuesday. The place was very quiet. Luckily we got a room. Very nice, vaulted ceilings, great view! The place was clean. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine. The place is dated, but very charming for a coastal hotel. We've stayed there before and loved it. We were looking forward to dinner at the attached... More

We enjoyed our breakfast for our family of five that was complimentary. The location was great. Bodega Bay is a great spot to visit. We would come back. The drive to Russian river was beautiful. The kids enjoyed the pool.

Hotel is dated (in a charming way), but very clean and rooms not only functional and relatively large and staff was very responsive to requests. Grounds were immaculate. Restaurants at hotel and at the Tides Restaurant across the street both simply wonderful. Service well-paced, and food delicious. Romantic...

We stayed a the Inn at the Tides and enjoyed it immensely. Units are large and have great view of the Bay. They are in a hillside setting and are in separate units. Our stay included a fireplace in room, a complimentary bottle of wine, and complimentary full breakfast at the Tides Restaurant across the highway from the hotel. Excellent... More

This is an expensive hotel and that would be justified if the service wasn't poor and the rooms weren't worn out. Switchboard is a joke as they put callers to our room on hold for over five minutes several times and simply hung up or didn't answer numerous other times. Overall a tired facility with people that don't care to... More

The Inn at the Tides did not exactly give me the Bodega Bay experience I was looking for with my family. The Pros After reading tripadvisor, I requested a room "higher up," with a great view, and that is exactly what we got. I appreciated being at the very top of the property, and the view from the room was... More

The view was gorgeous. The room was clean. The shower worked well. The pillows and bed were comfortable, very comfortable. The bottle of wine was a nice touch and very tasty. We had a lovely meal at the restaurant on the first night we were there. It was nice to a complimentary breakfast at the Tides restaurant across the street.... More

We were there for the three day "stay Awhile" package July 20-23, 2014. Our room showed the lack of care the Inn is allotting to the upkeep. Our toilet didn't flush properly, we had three visits from the engineer and we still had a problem. The worst was that the toilet kept running and in a drought area that is... More
