Affordable, for which you may find the details fitting. While the room was convenient and check in was prompt and pleasant, the stench from the toilet in our room was subway grade nasty, and the mattress was lumpy (or sloping, depending on where and how you're lying on it). The shower is choose your own adventure: mild pressure or hot... More

My daughter and I decided to bike down hwy 1 in a bit of a downpour. We arrived quite bedraggled, dripping and dirty. The managers Lana and Jim were terrific. They were kind and welcoming. Went beyond nice in drying our clothes and giving us a lift to and from town for groceries. The accommodations are exceptional. Every room is... More

Hi, we arrived in Bodega Bay hoping for a vacancy and found this inn. Fortunately for us, the delay of crab season allowed us to stay here. It is a quaint inn that feels like the home it was. We had a very spacious room with the basic amenities. The staff were very friendly. We plan to stay here again.

Stopped here overnight on the way up Highway 1 North. This is a good stop over if you get into San Francisco in the afternoon and don't want to drive too far the first night, on trip further north. Traffic from SF up the 101 was pretty fierce, but the cut over to Bodega Bay is beautiful countryside. Try to... More

My husband and I stayed here this week and we absolutely loved it!! It's not a fancy place, so if that's what you're looking for you may be dissapointed, but it was one of the best hotels weve ever stayed at, and we've stayed at very nice ones. It's quiet and quaint and very laid back. The man at the... More

Comfortable bed we had a good night sleep when the traffic died down. It is a busy little road leading to harbor. For a Inn they did not have breakfast which was desapointing. It is a little run down and you have to waste lots of water before getting the warm.

The inn is like a house converted. Walls thin, a lot of noise with people walking and talking. Our room was by the kitchen. Heard people talking and laughing through the walls. Bathroom had stinky, musty, smelly shower curtain, no towel racks or toilet paper holder. Holes in the wall and some pat hwork started. Sink barely drained and toilet... More

The Inn was average. A nice place to stay. The thing that made it more pleasant was the common kitchen area that you could access anytime with your room key. There you could keep food or make items and sit and relax. There was a cabinet of movies that you could borrow and take back to your room and watch... More

I can't begin to describe how disgusted and disappointed I was with this hotel. The website pictures and high price per night was grossly misleading. The photos on their website look nothing like the room that was given to us upon our arrival. The sheets on the bed were dirty, the bathtub did not look like it had been washed... More

My wife and I spent a night in the Sonoma room. The room was large and clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was functional (it took a very long time and a lot of cold water down the drain to get hot water) and we would have been very happy if the room's picture windows had faced somewhere...
