If pictures are worth a thousand words, then this place has all the right photos; however, do not be deceived. The lodging was located in the back part of property. The room was small, no bigger than 12x12, king bed OK, but no coffee in the room, only in the main part of the hotel. After staying here @ $150... More

Two nights at this OK, family-run veteran of the Bodega Bay scene. Not the place to go if your a "high maintenance" guest, but room (#3) was nice and big, good bed, fine Wi-Fi. I think terming the garden as spectacular is somewhat fulsome, and while the "kitchen" is well stocked it is very much DIY, including coffee. Our major... More

Extremely dissatisfied. The room we were assigned is not pictured on website. We were in Tree Top... up stairs on the right. The white base boards scuffed in black through out the room. The drapes were missing hooks to hang properly. We ran the water for 10 minutes never got hot water. The white shower curtain was stained at the... More

I usually do not write reviews, however, I felt compelled because of the excellent service and value I received at the Bodega Bay Inn. I have stayed here twice now and was impressed both times. First, the owners, Ted and Susan, were so welcoming and personable- it really started my stay off on a positive note. The rooms were clean... More

We stayed at this hotel before. It used to have a really cool area to hang out in for people to eat and read. They still have this area in the hotel but they took away a lot of the food/drinks they used to have. They used to have cereal for example.. Not anymore, they used to have bread to... More

1st off, I am not a picky person so in all honesty, I would stay here again if needing a room in that area. But for those that are picky, I just wanted to give a few little details. The place is confusing on where to park when you arrive, you park in the shop parking lot and walk up... More

I was so pleased with this place. The rooms are large and clean, and the service was fabulous. I thought the kitchen area was very cute, it was also nice to have our own patio. They offer very affordable wine. This absolutely made our stay in Bodega wonderful and romantic!!! Thank you!!

Beautiful room in a property with some interesting sculpture. Very convenient to the Bay, shopping and stores. Excellent wifi. Plenty of heat on a cold night. Very much a one-off and not a cookie cutter chain. A few oddities like ripped bed covers, strangely designed shower, no tub and a drain pad guaranteed to stub a toe. Probably designed as... More

I did not know that an Inn on the California Coast could be so disappointing and costly at the same time. First we arrived and were told we would have to take our luggage from the strip mall parking lot to our room because the road up to the parking lot was washed out and only suitable for large SUV's...

It's not a typical "motel", but perfect for Bodega Bay. We stayed here on a road trip down the California coast and had the Library room. Our room was right behind the check-in desk and we were a bit concerned about noise, but that there was no need for concern. It was a nice-sized, comfortable room and had a door... More
