Gorgeous raw coastal beauty! Great place for hiking, biking, or just relaxing by the fire with family and friends. Good restaurant and spa. Seals, tide pools, galleries, wildlife! Perfect place to get away from busy city life and cell reception.

Great Experience! Just a bit far from the ocean, but overall very good stay. The food was great as was the breakfast! We did a walk to the ocean but it was a bit breezy so we didn't stay out long. Overall a great experience.

After reading several (negative) comments about the lodge, I was prepared for a poor to average experience. Fortunately, we got the best room and were very pleased with our stay overall. Yes, the décor is tired (circa 1950's), but our view and the window seats were just spectacular, so we could easily overlook that. The bathroom was nice and clean... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Sea Ranch. The location is beautiful and very peaceful. The Sea Ranch Lodge is pleasant and relaxing. Don't expect deluxe accommodations but they are comfortable. We were disappointed in the food. Dinners were good but breakfast was poor to average. For example, my hash browns were under cooked and inedible.

Cooks were terrible and breakfast was not any better. This lodge has so much potential, but really needs some work. Would not eat there again and would not pay that much to stay. Too many... More

The lodge is in need of an upgrade. There is no TV so be warned. Also, the restaurant and it's service was horrible and cost us a small fortune. We only took a bite of our food and the server said nothing.

Beautiful area. Hotel rooms needs a face lift, but the views are spectacular. Try to book a top floor due to hearing traffic upstairs & crying baby. Not what I wanted for my Anniversary trip. The restaurant had good food but a bit pricey.

The Sea Ranch Lodge is situated in a simply stunningly beautiful location. It's an ideal getaway for those who want to be far removed from the hustle and bustle of crowds, noise, and "entertainment." There are no TVs in the rooms, or even alarm clocks -- that should tell you the mindset of the place and its guests. On the... More

This was our second time staying at Sea Ranch and all I can say is perfect: location, room, meals! I highly recommend Sea Ranch Lodge and a trip up the Sonoma Coast for a perfect weekend getaway for two.
