“Location and Staff Great”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This location is very good for experiencing the views of the Bay. We found the Office staff very friendly. The rooms have seen much better days. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay, The first had a very uneven floor, with a hole before entering the bathroom, large stains on carpet, The second a handicapped, which we were not told in advance. The furniture is worn, out dated, and all bed linens need to be replaced. The balconies on both rooms had not been swepted and unused cigarettes had been discarded on flr., furniture had to be wiped down before used. Towels were replaced daily which was the extent of the housekeeping, beds left on made. Closet door in first room off track, sliding glass door on second room had to be tugged at to open or close.

Stayed in a King fireplace suite. Got second floor with bay view. Will remember to request top (3rd) floor room next time. Just affords a better view. Nice, small balcony to sit and enjoy the view with wine at night or coffee in the morning. Room is clean but a bit dated which gives it a very cozy feel. Free continental breakfast in morning and you can actually walk to dinner at Lucas Wharf. Be aware restaurants in the area close at 9pm!

Room Tip: Request top floor and bay view if stairs don't bother you for the best view.

Traveling the Pacific Coast along Hwy 1 and was looking for a place to stop for the night. Was surprised to find the the inn had rooms available. Even better, reasonably priced for what we thought we might have to pay in this area. There multiple buildings that have 2 floors and rooms that open up to the bay. The room we had was spacious, clean and comfortable. Being on the 2nd floor, the room has a vaulted ceiling that adds to the appearance. The bed was comfortable. The rooms are a little older and you could tell there has been some work done in the bathroom, but aside from the appearance, everything was functionable. This turned out to be a pleasant stop along the way with a nice view of the bay. The check in staff was very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: There are rooms on the 2nd floor that are accessed by stairs. That might be a consideration for tho...

Chose this hotel because of location and price. It's situated on a small terraced hill. There are individual buildings holding 3-rooms to a building. Some buildings have several stairs. If stairs are an issue for you, take this into consideration when booking. I initially got Room 41, a king room with a bay view patio, at $160 a night. I requested another room, as the view was partially obscured by the lower building. The 2nd room was #26, another King ,with a fireplace for additional $10. This room was spacious, had an unobscured view of bay, couch, chair, refrigerator, coffeeemaker, TV and fireplace. It was a nice looking room and was clean. The pillows were flat - bring your own if this is important to you. The screen on patio door was about to fall off and was worn. There was a large rusty nail protruding from the bottom of the patio door frame. There was an enclosed spa. The 'expanded continental breakfast ' was OK - only hot item was make-it-yourself waffles. The rooms can use some renovating, as the carpet was thin and worn and could use a paint job. Hotel is walking distance to Coastal Birdwalk (less than 1 mile south of hotel) and an expensive bayside restaurant.
I chose this hotel because of its location and price. I had checked other hotels in Bodega Bay - many were much more expensive. I would stay here again and get a less expensive room.

Room Tip: If stairs are an issue, mention that to desk clerk. If you want an unobstructed view of bay, reques...

My husband and I come here every year for our anniversary. The staff here is very friendly and the free continental breakfast is great! We bring our dog with us as this is a dog friendly hotel. We absolutely love it here. Some rooms have fireplaces, some have spa tubs, some have both.
If I could change one thing it would be upgrading the T.V.s in the rooms to flat screens.
This place is a very relaxing getaway.

The rooms were clean and very roomy with a limited view to the bay, but that was all right because we didn't spend much time in the room. There were a few things missing that would have been nice amenities, like a clock and somewhere to hang wet towels. The TV is the old fashioned type and there was a VHS player as well, but cable did not include any premium channels for watching movies in the evenings. The room had a small patio that was nice to sit and watch the para-skiers and be protected from the winds, but the wall was too low to trust the dogs without leashes. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and the breakfast offered was really decent, especially the waffle making apparatus. Coffee in the room and the breakfast area was really poor, so plan accordingly if your morning coffee is important to you.

Bodega Coast Inn & Suites is walking distance from Doran Beach & several of Bodega Bay's waterfront restaurants. We stayed in a king size room that overlooked the spa, Doran Beach & Bodega Bay. The hotel is dog friendly, however it would be nice if the hotel designated a special area for dogs to do their business. Also, the hotel would probably increase their number of guests by planting more Cypress Trees throughout the North part of the property, especially around the parking lot & main entrance. The front office could use some large potted plants in front, to make the check-in area more apparent. The rooms could do with an upgrade, such as slip covers on the sofa's & chairs, white paint for the walls & furniture. A clean beach look would really compliment the rooms & would be more cost effective for the hotel. Other than that, we had a positive experience and really enjoyed Bodega Bay.

Room Tip: Request a room closer to the South of the property near the Cypress tress & outdoor spa. Also, r...
