“OK rooms, great jacuzzi”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Spent a weekend here as a quick getaway. The rooms are on the small side, and show their age. Our chairs were so stained, that we did not sit on them. A bottle of wine for each room is a nice touch, as is the in room coffee/tea service. The on site bar & restaurant looked nice, but we did not use them. However, the pool and jacuzzi were great! The spa is very big and clean and was a major draw. It easily holds a dozen bodies without feeling crowded. Rooms could use a small refrigerator. For the price, would probably stay elsewhere next trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the spa & on an upper level for a view.

I was a little unsure of where to stay in Bodega Bay but this place was GREAT! We had a room with a fireplace and king size bed. The view of the bay was great (we were at the top of the hill). The pool and jacuzzi was very nice. The only thing was we were not able to get the fire lit!

Upon arrival we were given a bottle of great wine and free breakfast across the street where part of "The Birds" was filmed. We were also given a 20% discount for dinner. All and all our stay was excellent.

Room Tip: The rooms at the top have a great view - lots of windows and space to relax in. I would go back here...

This beautiful Inn is nestled in the low hills overlooking this beautiful bay. The rooms were spotless and furnished in an updated design that was appealing and comforting. We used this site as our jumping off point to explore some fantastic vineyards in the lower Russian River Area considered the Green Valley and Bennett Valley. We visited LynnMar, Mary Edwards and Iron Horse during this Mid October Weather. The vines were golden as harvest was just completed and the weather was perfect. Speaking of perfect, do visit the hotel restaurant, "the Duck Club," with a beautiful view of the bay and amazing entrees. I would strongly suggest making an advanced reservation for dinner as the restaurant attracts a lot of local folks as well. Oh, the Noise...- you will be gently lulled to sleep by the sound of fog horns in the distance if you leave your windows open, which is very tempting with crisp, fresh air.
Cheers!

This hotel would be wonderful for a romantic weekend. For us, it was a one night stop with 2 kids (10 & 16). The check in was quick and easy. The room nice with a lot of windows. We were surprised with a complementary bottle of wine and a morning newspaper the next day. Breakfast was included and we walked across the street to be given a great seat next to the windows. The breakfast choices were varied and delicious. We were also entertained by the sea lions playing in the bay.

We would like to return for a couples weekend :)

Quite place. Nothing fancy but if you want a place to relax it is the place to go. Rooms are more like a cabin feel. Breakfast is included and the food is wonderful.The pool was nice. There is a fireplace in the rooms.

We live in Napa and had a wedding to attend in Occidental - We did not want to drive back to Napa after the wedding - Booked one night (sat) at the Tides three weeks prior to Wedding day. Called about 18 days prior to and explained that the wedding was at 3:30 PM in Occidental and according to the "Policy", check in was 4:00PM. I called and spoke to Guest "Services" and made the following offer- I will pay an EXTRA $80.00 for a check in by 2:00 Pm for Houskeeping inconveniences. Then I stated that if there were ONLY a higher grade room vacated by that time, I would PAY the up-charge for the room upgrade AS WELL. He explained that "Policy was Policy" and he could not do that . I said to him,"Certainly of your many rooms, someone will check out by Noon or 1:00PM".The up-charge ($80.00 Plus Upgrade) would have been almost 60% of an additional Night at our rate of $258.00 per night. I IMMEDIATELY cancelled the room and found a great B$B in Graton only minutes form the wedding and they were happy to show some Flexibility and allow a 1:30 Check in versus 3:00PM.
I have appropriately renamed them- "Inn-Flexible at The Tides" - I do not need to spend good money after no consideration for "Other" circumstances. BW

Room Tip: Ask before booking- You may arrive in town early and find yourself "Hanging Around" for hr...
