Booked here without reading reviews and was not disappointed. Rooms, although not the biggest were clean and offered a good nights sleep. Nice shower with plenty of hot water. Very helpful staff and all at a fair price. A good base for all the walks around. Free parking and WiFi.

My boyfriend and I stayed one night, and we were so pleased with our choice. We were doing a quick 2 day getaway with one night in West Marin. We knew we'd be plenty busy during the day so we just wanted a nice (but not too pricey) room to relax in for the evening. Our room (#2) was just... More

I surprised my boyfriend with a quick weekend getaway for his birthday. This place was perfect. It's bayside, totally peaceful, and amazing dining a little ways down the road. The price was just right, and though it was a little dated, it was the perfect place to hide from the world for a bit. It was clean, it didn't feel... More

I didn't expect much from this resort, judging by the dated appearance of the exterior, and being located immediately adjacent to the main road. But the room was a nice little surprise for two grandparents, a young mother and a five-year-old. We were thankful to get this room too as other local resort rooms were all sold out. The bedroom...

While the "resort" itself looks somewhat dated and not very lively (for a "resort"), the second floor's rooms of one of its building which is located next to the bay, on the South end of the resort, are truly outstanding. They are quite (too?) pricey (approx. $250) but so nice (read my room notes below). We just spend 2 nights... More

Our room was around $130 for two adults, but with two kids under 14, they jacked up the price to $150/nite. The room had two double beds anyway so I don't get why they charged us more. Not a value at all for what you got. The room was fairly clean except for the mold growing under the caulking in... More

Lots of places in the area were sold out but we were lucky to find a room here. The price was reasonable, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. They were nice enough to give us an early check-in so our young child could nap and she had a futon on the floor. Wifi was spotty.

This was a nice place, clean and on the water. It was close to town and Point Reyes Park is nearby. The room was decent and had everything I needed. The people at the desk where nice and helpful. The view from the room was lovely.

I live in San Francisco and I've been coming to this place for more than 10 years. I actually really like it and will continue to come here! The staff is wonderful, great service, very reliable and safe.The main reason I'm only giving it 3 stars is that when it was the Golden Hinde it was roughly the same as... More
