Right on the coast, beautiful grounds, congenial staff, lovely suite/room. All was A-OK with our stay, couldn't be happier. Highly recommend - bottle of good wine upon arrival, bountiful breakfast, all the perks for economical stay. First class!

We love this place! It's not super fancy but the location is the best. Bay view restaurant has wonderful food and great staff! Be sure to visit Gourmet Au Bay wine bar across the highway. Can't wait to go again!!

The property is beautiful with a nice overlook of the bay, but the rooms are a bit dated. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to use the pool area arriving a bit late and leaving early the next morning. The restaurant was excellent - both food and service - and if I'm ever in the area again, I may... More

We had the pleasure of spending one night at The Inn at the Tides. We appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine and the log for the fireplace. Also the complimentary breakfast at The Tides was quite nice. The Tides was featured in Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "The Birds". However, the room was a bit small with no view and quite pricey.

The property is located on the Bay with a nice bay view BUT the room is dated, the shower/tub is disgusting (showerhead in particular) to the point where I did not feel safe taking a tub. The carpet had burns on from the fire place. The gardens are beautiful but the rooms are gross!! It just does not feel like... More

Older and well kept facility with overviews of Bodega Bay. Large room with KS bed, inroom fireplace, spacious bathroom, and complimentary bottle of wine - a very nice touch. On site restaurant was very good as well. All in all a very nice overnight stopping location on our trip up the coast to Seattle.

After checking in we went up to our room on the hill. There was almost no view from it (room 1001). The decor is outdated and the carpet had stains in it. We went down to use the workout room in the "SPA" building. The interior of the building reminded me of an old community pool. The workout room was... More

The staff was so helpful from the moment we walked in. I had ordered the chocolate strawberries, they were great and we had a complimentary bottle of wine, but the cork screw in the room wouldn't remove the cork, I called the front desk asking for a better cork screw and instantly a gentleman arrived with one and all was...

This was a very nice place for an overnight getaway with a friend. The room was very nice; the only downchecks I would give is that there was a strange odor and the front desk staff allowed others to check in before us even though we were waiting right there in the lobby. The pool/spa area was very nice and... More

My husband and I used to view the Inn at the Tides as a wonderful escape. After a couple of years of not going we decided to revisit one of our favorite places....not so anymore. While we were there, very noisy work was going on which prevented us from using the pool facilities during the day and EVEN our room.... More
