Nice clean room slightly below average...lighting inadequate...below average continental breakfast, however satisfying until lunch...avoid room #2 due to excessive noise from the adjacent building's restaurant and bar...very colorful language

We were planning on spending the day in Mendocino and wanting a place to stay on our southern journey. I happened upon this wonderful inn on expedia. It was a little above our usual budget, but well worth the extra dollars. We arrived around 6pm and were met by a lovely woman, who explained the hotel and even brought us... More

We stayed in the Lavender Room with two queen beds. We had a chance to peek into some other rooms and noticed they were a little bit larger. It was the three of us (self, wife, and son) so it was quite fine. Great location, right between Pt. Reyes to the South and Bodega Bay to the North. Also there... More

After driving up Highway 1 from San Francisco and visiting Point Arenas this was a great place to stay. Historic but with modern amenities. A very comfortable bed and an friendly staff. Across the street was a great place for breakfast.

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
