Off the beaten path just outside Pt. Reyes Station, you'll find Motel Inverness. This charming inn was a surprise on several levels. Affordable with truly luxurious bedding in every guestroom. A large oversize lounge is a great gathering space. And the innkeeper, is completely attentive and helpful. Just minutes away from the delightful town of Pt. Reyes Station.

I love this place but this year's visit was a bummer. The setting is on Tomales Bay--fabulous. The staff (Shannon & Melissa) very welcoming and the locale can't be beat (Point Reyes National Seashore). However the rooms are very small, lack telephones and internet connectivity. There is a lovely seating area with a fireplace and TV collocated with the front... More

We stayed here for our first two nights in the States so we could chill before moving on. We had advised we would be late and arrangements had been made for our key. We had the Great Egret suite so had a bedroom with table to eat at, kitchen and shower room. There was a deck outside with furniture. The... More

We stayed in the Heart's Desire suite, 10/9-1/11/13. What a lovely, relaxing spot. There were four of us and both beds were very comfortable. We ate in a few times and it was nice to have the little kitchenette for dishes, glasses, etc. I also appreciate the hotel's nod to sustainability in the bamboo dishes, notes to be water usage...

Room 4 was very cute although a bit on the cozy side. On the down side my wife and I woke up in pain, the bed had San Francisco style hills in it. The lodge was very nice with a wonderful view of the bay and nice morning light.

We decided to stay at the Motel Inverness because it was late and we saw that there was a vacancy. That was an excellent decision on our part. The staff is terrific and provided a lot of information about sightseeing/dining/etc for the area. The motel is a bit older and has some older style decor. However, the bathroom had new... More

Two nights at Motel Inverness right on the main road just past Inverness Park. Small ground floor room with nice little balcony right on the marsh adjacent to Tomales Bay. Some birds to see right there. Really late arrival nicely accommodated. We'd been there before and would go back again. However you don't want to be spending much if any... More

Just to add to what others have said, our first room, room with a view,was just cramped. Too small for 2 of us to move around in. But they moved us to number 2 with a little kitchenette and much better experience. It's a very basic hotel but works if you are here to enjoy the outdoors.

We spent 3 nights here while attending a family reunion nearby. Our room was quite small, but comfortable. There is no refrigerator. It had a nice patio overlooking the marsh. There is a wooden walkway out to a former hunting blind on the water, now equipped with a bench to sit and enjoy the view and the birds. The lodge... More

This place was great! Located between Pt. Reyes and Inverness, it overlooks tidal marshes and has very nice landscaping. A quite nice great room with fire place and billiards table make a cosy addition to the rooms. The room we stayed in was an upgrade. We looked at the originally booked room and it, too, was quite nice, although not... More
