This was probably one of the cleanest rooms we've been in, in a long time. Even the baseboards were clean. Beds were fresh and soft, not too soft but comfy. Had a small patio, no view. Did look into some view rooms and will pay the difference next time. Our rooms were in the wing behind the gas station. Was... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. Husband and i like to get away from So.Cal and enjoy the quaintness of the little harbor and being able to walk down the path and watch the fishing boats come in and out. Very quiet (you get used to the freeway noise from Hwy 1). Breakfast is nice with handmade waffles... More

Clean rooms, but dim lighting. The staff was friendly. Some breakfast items are complimentary others you pay a nominal price for. The room offered no lotion or blow dryer. There is a microwave, but ours did not work properly. Our room was fairly close to Highway 1, but we did not find it to be a problem.

Rented a studio for two nights, for the family including two young kids. Loved so many aspects of it. Great time spent sitting on the balcony watching boats come in/out of the harbor and seals playing in the water. Easy and friendly check in/out and personal requests honored. Breakfast was ok but better than nothing - waffles, cereal, oatmeal, coffee,... More

Love the harbor, bridge view! Noisy on the deck since there is Hwy 1 just a few feet away (hence the bridge). Modern, cork flooring, fully equipped kitchen, vessel sink, no tub, large bath. Our room was right next to the exterior corridor door, slamming heard throughout the night. Insulation between floors not that good, heard the upstairs guests all... More

Thank you for your review. A couple things we are changing immediately. Breakfast will now be 7am - 10am (30 minutes longer than previously) We will add two more WiFi radios to our system and re-locate some of the existing radios in April. Lack of WiFi signal continues to be a problem with many guests and we will attempt to... More

Good Wifi and clean rooms. The gym is poor with 2 elliptical and one bowflex, with one light by the door and the rest in the dark. There was no coffee left at 9am and the free breakfast was pretty insignificant unless you paid extra for mini quiche or yogurt. The service tried to be okay, but the staff seemed... More

Thank you for your review. We will add an LED flood light to the exercise room. Since we have coffee all day long from 7am from 10pm there must have been some other issue. I will discuss it with the staff on duty at the time. Please contact the Lodge if you have any further concerns. Thank you for your... More

Stayed this weekend. Have been many times. Always clean rooms and quiet. The views from the rooms are great . Noyo Harbor and a slice of ocean. Relaxing to watch boats and seals in the harbor from balcony. The staff is always nice.

Super clean rooms. Friendly and accommodating staff. Love the huge balconies that overlook the Noyo Harbor. So fun to sit and enjoy a beverage while watching the boats go in and out of the harbor. There's a great little trail behind the hotel that takes you down to the beach, so you don't even have to drive if you don't... More

We didn't enjoy our stay. Upon entering the room it smelt very strong of cleaning products. The smell would not go away. We had to leave door open to air it out. Small TV. The fridge was not plugged in and we had put our food in there when we got there. Next morning we realized it was not plugged... More

We apologize for your unpleasant stay. As always, if you are not pleased with your room for any reason upon arrival, you do not have to stay and there is no cancellation charge. Although we provide very good HD programming, we have no plans on increasing the size of the televisions in the rooms. The sizes of the TV are... More

Most importantly, Mr Chas112 has had $38.39 refunded to him. The knocks on the door were due to a clerical error that had him checking out a day before he was originally scheduled to be checking out. Upon arrival, please be sure at check-in to see if there are any available upgrades for your stay. Unfortunately, there were not available... More
