Love staying at The Lodge. We always receive 5 star service and love the amenities that are included with our stay. Great value for a luxurious, cozy stay on the coast. We are having our wedding at The Lodge in November and can’t wait.

Hotel's Favorite
Lovely place, the grounds are beautiful as is the setting. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful.The pool, spa and gym are top notch, and very well maintained. The resturant in the hotel is called Drakes. it is physically very nice but the food is very, very sub par and over-priced. I do not mind paying a high price for a lovely dinner but this was borderline inedible. Otherwise a great place to go for a lovely and romantic time.

We’ve loved Bodega Bay Lodge for years. It’s a special place - peaceful, all rooms have decks or patios where you can enjoy a view of the bay and listen to the foghorn, and the staff provides exceptional customer service (even better than before). You’ve got everything you need on property - restaurant, bar, heated pool, hot tub with beautiful views, bocce, and fire pits. The rooms are lovely and most have fireplaces to keep you cozy. It’s the perfect place for a relaxing get-away.

A beautiful location for a peaceful and relaxing get away. The grounds and the location are lovely.. I was passing through town with my mother and only stayed one night. I can't wait to go back for a longer stay.

The Drake restaurant's menu at the Lodge is good. Plus there are good nearby places to eat. Be sure to walk on Bodega Head and visit the tree grotto and to hike on the other trails nearby. The nearby towns and beaches are a treat to visit.

It was a "big" birthday this year for me and I wanted to treat myself to a little getaway. I chose Bodega Bay because it was different from the typical Napa/Sonoma trips. I enjoyed that it was quieter and more of a retreat-style. The on site spa treatments were wonderful, the nature hikes nearby, and the on site amenities were wonderful. It was a wonderful time and I think I need to start making this an annual birthday getaway! The location was beautiful, the staff was amazing, and it was just so peaceful and serene.

What an amazing hotel with high standards all around. From the restaurant to the spa and check in and check out. The lodge is a great gateway to the beautiful sites of Sonoma at the Bay. The hotel team is so accommodating and friendly.

My wife & I had a great getaway experience at the Lodge. Great views & great staff made our stay memorable! The spa services provided by Sara & Tammy were great. The Drakes restaurant was superb! We ate all our meals on the property.

This was a trip to celebrate my birthday on February 14th , this was our 5th stay at the Lodge . We got upgraded from our usual room #506 to room # 611, thank you “ Joe Mangiaracina “ Honestly we love both rooms , room #611 was slightly bigger however the sink did not drain well at all , and the outlet by the bathroom sink did not work , so I had to dry my hair in the hallway , the cord was not long enough so I could not use the mirror . This is however just minor stuff , and will not stop us from coming back . Upon arrival, the Lodge had a nice bottle of champagne for me on ice, as well as chocolate and a welcome back/ Happy birthday card in the room . That was very much appreciated after a full day of travel . We had my birthday dinner at Drakes , and as always it was disappointing. The lack of choices and lack of flavor is just so frustrating, also my birthday dessert got delivered with no candle , just a minor detail I guess . I so wish the Lodge could do something about Drakes , especially since there is suck lack of nice restaurants in the area , the service was good this time but the food unforgettable. The location is superb, I loved swimming in the heated pool , bike riding along the coast , the nature here is breathtaking. We will be back .
