A perfect respite from the frenetic rat race of the Bay Area. This truly is a one street town, no stoplights, no stop,signs and we loved it. The hotel is clean, comfortable and simple yet superb towels and bedding. The continental breakfast is ample. The owners go out of their way to be sure you are comfortable and happy. The... More

When we arrived at the Valley Ford, the doors were locked and no one was home other than the enormous goats behind the hotel. We called the number we had from our reservation and after about 30 minutes, someone appeared and opened our room. The room was basic, but quite spacious and clean. As it was a Tuesday night, the...

Over the years, my wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times. We participate in events at the Rancho Strozzi Institute and also at the SkyWalker Ranch so this is a convenient location; a good quiet place to rest when tired (no great nightlife!!) and the staff is of real assistance on those occasions when we have to...

This good hotel is to our taste. Historic, simple, tasteful in the rooms and what it provides. Fresh water and coffee in the hall outside the rooms. Reasonable price. On weekends it has a good restaurant.

I'm having trouble rating the Valley Ford Hotel, because it was good for what it is (a very small inn above a restaurant/bar) but it just wasn't what I was looking for on the day I arrived to stay a night before continuing my road trip to San Francisco. I'd planned my hotels ahead of time and taken a chance... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Valley Ford. A bargain for the area, but a charming inn with complementary Kerig coffee all day, complementary breakfast, clean and bright rooms above a pub (that closes early so no disturbances for guests at night). Loved the two beautiful goats outside. A cute patio out back for breakfast or drinks during your... More

Great little inn nestled in a village surrounded by beautiful countryside about 10 minutes inland from Bodega Bay. No frills but charming in a rural/rustic way. Nice continental breakfast (scones, granola, yogurt, hard boiled eggs). Excellent dinner at the restaurant downstairs.

Our second time staying here. We love it! Its quaint, clean and close to the Bay Area, yet it still feels like a getaway. There is little to do at VFH other than sleep unless Rocker Oysterfellers is open downstairs, but that is only Thursday through Sunday, so we head to the coast 10 minutes away for the perfect oyster...

I came here to get away from a hectic week in San Francisco, spur of the moment. I drove up through Petaluma, through the lovely countryside populated by dairy farms and arrived around 5. You go to the bar of the restaurant to pick up your keys, and then upstairs to the rooms, furnished in an overall style that seems... More

What an unexpected pleasure! The Valley Ford Hotel sits in a tiny town near Bodega Bay. There is a bar and an excellent restaurant called Rockers Oysterfellar on the first floor with five rooms upstairs. The hotel is classically old and is a truly wonderful place. The rooms have a lovely Shaker simplicity, with everything you need and would want... More
