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 The decor is outdated and the carpet had stains in it.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

We spent our wedding night at the Inn at the Tides, so it seemed fitting to return for our 25th anniversary. If its only a view you want then this is the place. Absolutely stunning! We were up on a hill looking right out at the bay. Now the hotel itself. VERY dated. The lobby smelled horrible, that super musty,... More

If you are looking for a comfortable and lovely landscaped hotel with an amazing view, this hotel is for you. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast at the Tides Restaurant across the street is a special treat. There are no bad views there either. We had a full, hot breakfast next to a window by the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2015. Called to make a booking and the gentleman was very friendly and helpful and we got a lovely room. We had room 902 in the Bodega building. Upstairs, vaulted ceilings, fireplace (presto logs provided), end room, nice furnishings. The room was large and had a great view out to the bay... More

On a trip to Sonoma, we decided to check out Bodega Bay. The hotel was great. We booked the room on the upper terraces. The view of the bay was great - What a view of the sunset! The room was very hot when we arrive being with large windows facing west. The shutters had helped but the rapid drop... More

The last time we stayed- we were sitting on the couch and slapped our hands on the couch laughing and HUGE dust clouds appeared. Dirty bathrooms and awoke to staff listening to music and talking in Spanish so loud it sounded as if they were in our room. I notified the front desk and nothing was done. I later emailed... More

We have stayed at this hotel for the past three years. It is very convenient to all the popular spots and restaurants in this area. The thing we like the best is that the hotel is sheltered from ocean winds and on winter days the sun very warm. We like ground floor rooms as you have a patio that you... More
