The Bodega Bay Lodge should not be confused with the Bodega Coast Inn or the Bodega Harbor Inn as it is several stars above those places. We’ve stayed in each of the various room types at the Lodge: the Ocean Club Suites, Bodega Bay, and Pacific Coast variations on the first floor only as I don’t do stairs. Each one was perfect! They are clean, comfortable, and quiet, with cozy bedding and fireplaces and balconies. Those balconies are very private and even at the ground level have great views of the gardens and bay. We love the sunsets visible from every room, with golden skies peppered by the flocks of birds soaring above. The staff is friendly and welcoming – and know us from our frequent stays. (It's just a short drive from the City) The Duck Club Restaurant also should not be missed, although we usually dine in the adjacent lounge for the lighter atmosphere – but same menu.
It's the best place to stay on the coast south of Mendocino!
