“Great hotel in fantastic setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a great place to stay. We had a really spacious room with a well appointed bathroom. Sleeping was not a problem on such a comfortable bed. The balcony was so sunny and warm and protected from the wind during the day. With expansive views overlooking the bay and the wetlands area, it would be a mistake to forget your binoculars. We were so excited to see our first Bald Eagle.

We enjoyed meals in the restaurant, which has a varied menu and great wine choices. On the second visit, we did find the service to be rather slow, but we were not in any hurry and this did not detract from our enjoyment of our meal.

The pace is amazing, views were what you would imagine, thr spa was perfect could have stayed for the entire day in there.
The restaurant was yummy with great local choices and wines to add.
The room was huge and overlooked the coast, what else could you ask for!

This is a special place right on the edge of the Northern California coast - beautiful views, gorgeous gardens and restful rooms - some with fireplaces. Highly recommended!! The Duck Club is an excellent restaurant with breathtaking views.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have views but ask for a room with a fireplace!

We ended our week long trip to California with a two night stay at Bodega Bay Lodge - what a great way to end our trip to California. The hotel is very nice, with exceptionally well-kept grounds, beautiful outbuildings, welcoming lobby/reception area and spacious comfortable rooms. The rooms have working fireplaces - we didn't use ours. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a lovely on-site outdoor pool and hot tub area which we enjoyed each day after touring the local sites. So lovely to relax here, watch the wildlife in the surrounding wildlands and marsh area, and the ocean beyond. In the evening, there are a couple of nice outdoor seating areas, with gas fireplaces and comfy chairs to take in the sunset and the stars afterwards. There is a short wildlife trail to take you to the ocean and the expansive beach area - makes a great early morning wake-up walk. A short walk also takes you to the Bodega Bay Golf Links - unfortunately, we didn't have time to play, but it looked amazing. Each evening there was a wine & cheese reception in the lobby, which allowed us to taste some local wines - very nice! We really enjoyed our stay at Bodega Lodge, and recommend it.

Room Tip: It looked like each room has an ocean view - our certainly did, and the small balcony/patio was grea...

We stayed at the Bodega Bay Lodge last weekend for one night. We arrived early and were lucky to check-in before the regular check-in time.
We had a ground floor room with a partial ocean view and it was lovely. Our room was nicely furnished, great little patio area and a huge bathroom. The lighting in the bathroom was less than flattering for applying make-up mind, (just a tip for the girls out there) not that you tend to get all glammed-up in Bodega Bay, but it's nice to look in the mirror and not look green! But anyway...

The robes and slippers were a great touch and were most appreciated. All round a decent room.

I think what made the stay particularly special was the service though. From check-in to dinner service everyone was very friendly and courteous. The manager's happy hour with wine and cheese is a really nice touch and my husband and I enjoyed playing the giant Scrabble board game over a glass of wine or two in the lounge area.

We were really surprised by how good the Duck Club Restaurant was. Very impressed with the food, wine and service. Same for the breakfast. Well done Bodega Bay Lodge, your attention to detail and service was awesome. Your staff are a credit to you.

There's something very, very relaxing about the hotel that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's a combination of the ocean air, sea views, the mist rolling in that makes you want to cozy up and just relax into the the place.
We'll be back. Next time we're going to check out the spa.

Room Tip: I guess if you have a higher up room you'll get a better view. Although some on the ground floor...

Very lovely place, nice rooms, lots of friendly people working there. We were particularly impressed with Amanda, who went out of her way to make sure everything went well. She is one of the best people I've ever met at reception. The dining room serves great food with wonderful views, but is way understaffed, which makes service very slow.

Room Tip: It looks to me that every room is terrific. Large, fireplaces, views everywhere.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Bodega Bay Lodge. Our room, the Crows Nest was located in Bldg. 5 on the second floor. It was a huge room, nicely appointed with a fireplace and lovely view of the bay. It is the farthest room from the ofc. but this was fine for us. The breakfast was served in the lovely Duck Club and was plentiful and delicious. The staff was friendly, and helpful with directions and suggestions. Be sure and stop by the Spud Point Crab if you like clam chowder. Just a little hole in the wall with picnic tables but the clam chowder and crab cakes are the best I have ever tasted.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a better view.
