My wife loved the quirkyness - 1 inch copper pipe for curtain rods; Mr. Coffee machines on every table in the common room; something of the hippie hostel about it perhaps. The desk guy was indeed friendly and the price was about right. No corporate stylization here. My only real complaint is that I was told I could pull the... More

My daughter came out to visit from Colorado and I wanted to surprise her with a weekend trip to the ocean. We stayed here and it was a HUGE disappointment. Very run-down and drab "home" atmosphere. Upon arrival, since we had a small dog with us, we were quarantined to a remote section of the property with concrete floors which... More

The good news first, The front desk day person, Ted was very helpful and accomodating. The day was a bit warm, and they have no heat or air, so he provided a fan. Evening had cooled off nicely so I don't imagine they need this very often. Common area included fridge and microwave and some provisions. Nice touch with the... More

Praise first: The front desk person was very friendly and pleasant and the king bed was very comfortable. The room was a disaster. It smelled of mildew. The floor felt like splintered plywood...weak and broken in spots. But that is a guess, as it was covered with an ugly carpet which had a patch that didn't even pretend to be... More

The spectacular Highway One seems to be all about the stretch south from San Francisco. In our opinion Highway One north from SF is even more spectacular, and one place absolutely worth visiting is the small fishing town of Bodega Bay. And the place to stay there is the Bodega Bay Inn. It's a small family-owned hotel. We didn't see... More

This is a small town, coastal hotel so if you're looking for a Marriott...look somewhere else. That being said the rooms were large and clean and the staff of 1 was friendly and accommodating. It is a bit like a strangely laid out home with rooms scattered throughout. Unusually bathrooms but otherwise covered all the amenities we needed. No breakfast... More

We booked this in a slight rush and then read the reviews a night or so before we got there. We were ready for the worst! OK........we were greeted by the smell of Fish Soup? But loved our stay for one night at this quirky Guest House. Rooms were large ( Library and Dunes) comfy beds, old bathroom...great recommendation for... More

I hate to leave reviews which are slanted toward the negative, but Bodega Bay Inn compels me. For the simple reason that, with a little work, the place could easily be much more inviting. When you consider they charge the same as The Inn at the Tides, you really gotta wonder why anyone would choose to stay at BBI. The... More

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
