We stayed in room 15 back in 2012, and we were charmed by the views and the spacious, clean accommodations. It came with a full (incredibly old but functional) kitchen, although the fridge leaked, and a dinning area, a nice tv and plenty of cable. The room was around $200, I think we got a AAA discount. This time, March... More

We stayed in the Bayside Rooms for Valentine's Day. Not a luxury destination by any means, but nicely updated with marble counters, wet bar and fireplace-we we not disappointed. Watched the changing weather, seals, hawks, egrets and the incredible views of Tomales Bay for 2 days. Moonrise over the water from our deck was astonishing. Great for a romantic getaway.... More

Right on Tomales Bay. We stayed in room 15 which looked east with a view of the bay and the sunrise. Not all rooms had good views. Although the room was small and furnishings are dated, it was comfortable. The room had 2 windows both of which opened. One looked out at the bay and the other toward a garden... More

What can we say, we had a room right on the bay and watched the tide go in and out practically beneath our feet. Room 34 - cathedral ceilings, fireplace. The remodel is quite nice. Anna, at the front desk is better than most concierge services and we did things we would not have done if she hadn't told us... More

So there were six of us in two rooms. The hotel is right on the beach of Tomales Bay, and faces east, so there is an unobstructed 180 degree view of some fantastic scenery. There are shore birds, kayaks, fog, and sunrises. The restaurant was not operating when we were there. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We were in Room 1 which had a living room, kitchenette and separate bedroom with 2 queen beds. It was clean but the furnishings and bedding were dated. It had a nice back deck that had a view of the water and a front porch that had a bbq. We felt like we were staying in a funky beach house... More

We stayed in just a normal room without the big windows that faced the bay but it had a great updated shared patio with nice chairs and a table. The room was clean and the beds were firm and comfortable. The room was older but had been updated a bit. We just spend one night but it looked like a... More

Absolutely wonderful greeting by Barbara. Full of information and recommendations. We stayed in room 31 which is in a separate two story building. Ample parking, great room, great view (we were on second floor). Purpose of trip was to attend a wedding, which was held about 7 miles south of this place. Only reason for Very Good vs Excellent is... More

I would actually give this spot a 3.5 if I could. You can't beat the views of tamales bay in room 12, and its in the middle of pt. Reyes reserve. The rooms are clean but simple but not modern, even if they have been upgraded. The beds are comfortable an d our kids slept well, but we dragged them... More

We spent two nights here and were very comfortable. We were in room six, which overlooks the Tomales Bay. It is a suite. Very clean and comfortable. There is a room with a king size bed and another room with a sofa sleeper. A roll away bed is included as well. There is a small refrigerator and a dinette that... More
