Quirky, charming....but certainly not worth $400/night. Excellent breakfast, comfy bed and nice linens, yes. But barely any lighting in the room (7), made it hard to read or see. Industrial handles on the shower---not so charming. Only one vent working on the hot tub. This is an OLD hotel, and I just don't see that it's maintenance and minimal staff... More

I love hotels with personality, and Manka's certainly delivered. I decided to book the Sweet, one of the cheaper rooms, since reviews are so mixed and wanted to check it out before committing to a higher end room. Well, I will definitely be back and want to try all of the rooms! From the hot spiced cider upon check-in to... More

Another wonderful trip to Manka's. We stayed in the Boathouse, too, and damned if they didn't help us with our luggage either. For those of you who stay in "the most expensive hotels" and need help with your luggage, please go somewhere else. It's tough enough getting a room at Manka's. And the coffee-maker worked just fine in October....thank heaven's... More

We stayed four nights at their most expensive accommodations -"The Boat House"- in July 2013. These comments are not about the cost since we usually stay at the most expensive hotels. This property did not come to our high standards. To make a very long list of disappointments into a very few to just prove the point. 1. No offer... More

We stayed at Mankas, cabin 7, for two wonderful nights. It was so quiet, secluded and very romantic. The cabin was beautifully appointed and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. It is luxury from a rustic point of view, which was exactly what we wanted. The fireplace and loaded iPod were the only things we needed! Also, cabin 7 had a... More

This is our go-to place in Point Reyes, we especially love the Boat House over Tomales Bay which is pricey indeed yet always pays off for us. A special treat which says to one another how much we love one another. Yes, it's off the beaten track and so is the service, especially so, but the accommodations are a hoot... More

We sadly only had 1 night at Manka's. Highly recommend for at least 2-3 nights. Romantic, unique spot. Clean and lots of nice little touches to make you feel that it is money well spent. We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by a very helpful host. Everything was just perfect. The only nice addition would be a... More

"What a place to ‘get away from it all’. It’s simple and very quirky, but incredibly welcoming. Accommodation is in a variety of restored estates, varying from an old hunting and fishing lodge to a boathouse or a cabin. The style is Ralph Lauren-esq, rustic-meets-contemporary, country chic, maximized for comfort and relaxation. What with the extremely comfortable bed and the... More

We are just back from a week in Manka's Cabin wherein we dwelled in delight. A little over a year ago we were ensconced in Manka's Boathouse over (literally) Tomales Bay, where we also dwelled in delight. So, why such contradictory reviews? Why do we long to be Manka-ed and others warn against that state of being? With good reason... More
