Overall very happy with the stay. Location is beautiful, the food is great and the whole atmosphere is very serene. Left feeling r charged and in a good mood. Was charged twice for 2 of the nights but it was cleared out after some calls.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and we really liked it. It was very relaxing and such a great location by the coast. We had a great time walking the private trail. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well both nights. We enjoyed our food at the lodge. Good thing our upstairs neighbor were quiet... More

Restaurant experience excellent, the rest was pretty bad. Check in person knew little or nothing about the many trails advertised (which I suspect do not exist). Room was too dark to see to unpack or pack, let alone read! This may explain why when we packed to leave, we found many clothing items from a previous guest in drawers. I... More

Gorgeous setting ! My food was good and the nature and wildlife amazing. If peace and hikes in fresh air is you're thing, this is a good place. My bed was super comfy and I slept like a baby listening to the waves. My only negative would be very thin walls.

In an attempt to perhaps "preserve" its original ambiance, Sea Ranch Lodge is in serious need of maintenance! Pictures of the rooms on the internet do not accurately reflect their rather shabby and dated condition--very disappointing for the price. We had a dinner, which was good; however, a lunch salad was wilted, and the fish (fish & chips) was dripping... More

Considering we paid more than $400/night, I would expect the condition of the hotel — particularly the woefully outdated restaurant and fish-odor-filled lobby — to be much better. Our room was fine, the bathroom was nice, and the hot tub was good (if a bit over-chlorinated), but I just didn't feel like the experience matched what the website indicated. The... More

My wife and I just returned from two nights at the Sea Ranch Lodge. We had a wonderful time, and found the location and proximity to nature and the wild Sonoma Coast to be second to none. There's no denying the beauty and timelessness of the area, and the aesthetic of Sea Ranch and the lodge is quite cool and... More

Beautiful location, our room (#10) had the best view ever. We were able to stargaze at night while lying down on the couches. The serenity of the place is one of the best getaways I've experienced on the coast.

I enjoyed very much our stay at the Sea Ranch Lodge, overall. The environment is beautiful, the premises are very nice and authentic, the food is excellent. The reason for the "average" rating is that at this price level, the staff service should be way way better than it is... but that could be fixed easily, if they want to.
