The quaint Continental Inn, along with a general store and other conveniences, form the main intersection of the tiny town of Tomales. The rooms are comfortable and excellent. (Though completely lacking in sound insulation - this was not too big a problem during our stay since the town was silent most of the night.) We loved our stay, and West... More

This old time hotel looks like something out of Gunsmoke. Very comfortable, they are very helpful, and we enjoyed our 4 night stay here over the holidays. It was really in the middle of nowhere, but we found a delicious bakery across the street to grab a bit for breakfast

The owner here was so sweet to call us on the phone two weeks later after we tried to make a reservation and was told they were sold out. They had a cancellation and she reached out to us to let us know a room had become available.. Nice touch.. We had room #7 upstairs back right corner.. the bed... More

This comfortable, quaint inn needs to offer ear plugs as we've seen in a city B&B - my husband didn't stuff tissue in his ears and heard the "last call" at the bar next door. Never heard so much yelling around a lodging place - why don't they tell you that in advance?! It would also be helpful to post... More

This hotel was the closest to Dillions Beach where our friends were camping. They were very accommodating for 3 old ladies. We were on an outside room which didn't require any stairs to access. They provided ice when we asked. The room was large enough for a blow-up mattress to accommodate the 3rd lady. They provided all the linens. A... More

This is a beautiful, comfortable hotel, and I think the only hotel in Tomales. Rooms have true queen beds, very spacious, nice lotions and soaps. The internet seemed mostly functional. There is serve-yourself tea, coffee, and juice at all hours, which you drink in real ceramic mugs! It's a nice touch that makes the place feel very welcoming. Continental breakfast... More

Came upon this hotel by chance whilst exploring the PCH, north of San Francisco. What a find. We were made very welcome by the lady at the desk and got two rooms, ours being a suite, for the four of us, for $400. The rooms looked recently renovated, great TV, lovely bathroom with soaps and lotions etc. plus one of... More

This is a wonderful Inn with great rooms in classic tiny town. Perfect for exploring The Tomales Bay Area along Hwy 1. This is best described as a place for fun and reflection with friends, family or colleagues (if you like them). Could be very romantic for a couple looking for time together without all the fuss of the fancy... More

I booked this from the stellar reviews. First there is no service. This is a self service inn. You let yourself in. let yourself out(with a code)..leave the key in a box.. and you serve yourself a continental breakfast. The only person we saw was i think the maid leaving for the day. The breakfast was so unappealing and no... More

Finding a place to stay on highway 1 can be a challange. We were pleasantly surprised to find this one. It has been renovated and decorated nicely. The owner has spent a lot of time getting everything just right. She was very helpful and friendly. This Inn feels a bit like a bed and breakfast, which I enjoyed. There is... More
