My girl and I decided for a quick getaway to Bodega Bay. Being regulars to the area, we decided to opt for something new and get a room on a Thursday night at the Inn At The Tides. Unfortunately, there weren't many rooms available, so we went ahead and splurged and got the "Sonoma Room" for $250 for the night.... More

I was greatly disappointed by the hotel services. The hotel offers complimentary lan cable internet connection. However, I was having some issues hooking up to the internet connection in my room and called the frontdesk for help. She not only did not help me resolve this problem; she said that she had to charge me a higher room rate when... More

This is one of the worst places I have stayed at in a long time. My husband and I were looking for a respite from our hectic schedules and looking forward to a comfortable room and great view. The view was great, the room, not so much. The bed was like a concrete block and the sheets were so stiff... More

We booked the "Stay Awhile" package for $179 per night for a king vault room. You need to stay three nights mid-week but the deal includes both continental breakfast and dinner. The breakfast consists of either oatmeal or granola, a small dish of fresh fruit, a small glass of juice, a basket of miniature muffins and croissant plus coffee. The... More

Our one night stay was 4/08/08. After reading the Jekyl and Hyde reviews here, we were not certain what to expect. Fortunately, we were richly rewarded with a most pleasant stay. From check-in with a detailed explanation of what our visit included until checkout, our stay was perfect. We were blessed with two days of beautiful weather which helped. The... More

My husband and I wanted a nice quick get away and we were not let down. The Inn at The Tides was a nice escape for two nights. We arrived around 4:30 and were quickly and efficiently checked in. We had opted for a king room with a patio and stayed in room 801. The room was nice, not fantastic... More

This place was recommended by friends who had their wedding party stay here (poor things). I'm sure there must be something nice about the place for someone to actually recommend it (or want to get married there!!) but I'm afraid I can't think of even one positive thing to say about this place. The drive from San Francisco to Bodega... More

We just returned from our 5th stay at The Inn at the Tides, and it was our best one ever. Maybe the fabulous weather was part of it, but our room/bath were very clean, neat and inviting. We prefer an upper floor vaulted ceiling King bed room with fireplace. The view was postcard pretty. Dinner (Valentines) at the Bay View... More

We recently stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. The double queen room was nice (see my pictures) and spacious, and very clean. The bathroom was also clean and had good water pressure. The bedding was comfortable, although my sister complained of the pillows being lumpy. I'm not picky enough to have noticed. I loved the view from... More

We stayed at this Inn during Thanksgiving holiday. The hotel room was old and had the smell of an old room. Beds were old and sagging and the promised "view" was over rooftops and air conditioning. The price was more than nicer hotels in neighboring towns and for what we received, we thought it was not worth the money. The... More
