I spent one night here as a romantic getaway and it completely lived up to my expectations. The room was beautiful and I had a gorgeous view of the ocean. The bed was really comfortable with top notch duvets. There was a complimentary wine and cheese in the lobby for and hour and we talked to some really interesting people. My boyfriend and I sat in the hot tub later looking at the stars and we were the only people using it. I can't comment on the restaurant because we ordered room service but what we ordered was very tasty. We went hiking the next day and the hotel staff was great at picking out areas to hike. I would definately stay here again.

This hotel is just lovely...from the moment you enter until you leave. There was a wine tasting to greet us on Sunday night, and dinner in the Duck Club was a wonderful way to end the first day.
The view from our room was spectacular and was hard to leave. But we explored everything, due to the knowledge of the front desk personnel (Erika and Martin). We saw whales and seals, and unfortunately missed the opening of Crab Season by one week. Now we have something to return for and experience.
This hotel is definitely a beautiful way to spend time in Bodega Bay....classsy, elegant, and informal.. A wonderful combination.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the bay..as they are more dramatic. And the higher up, the better the view.

We arrived at Bodega Bay Lodge late in the afternoon. The front desk was welcoming and we felt immediately at home. After a short rest, it was time to explore the coastline we could see from our room's balcony.

Families with young children played in the sand and on not far away, fishermen tested their skills perched atop the boulders alongside the beach. It was the first day for crabbing, so all sorts of people were out with their crab catching gear. There was even a scuba diver decked out in full wet suit who braved the cold water to find those delicious crabs

Afterwards, we returned to the Lodge and walked down to the restaurant for a late meal. We wanted something informal, so the host suggested that we gather around a table by the fireplace near the bar. After a couple of bottles of Sonoma Valley wine and Tomales Bay oysters, we all agreed that it was a perfect ending to a perfect day.

With only one night to get away for opening crab weekend, we found Bodega Bay Lodge to still be the best out on the coast! The hospitality was outstanding from check in to check out. We enjoyed a lovely glass of Pinot Noir during friday night's wine time after we checked in. We even were greeted by the general manager. The view from our room was breathtaking. Room service was excellent. The room was very spacious, the bath tub was extremely relaxing and the beds were very comfortable. It was wonderful to unwind with a glass of wine by the fireplace. I will always choose Bodega Bay Lodge when I travel out to Bodega Bay. (The crab was amazing too!)

We stayed here recently and had a nice experience. The room was very clean and the view from our balcony was great. We left the patio door open and enjoyed the ocean air, but didn't enjoy the fog horn quite as much, although it didn't really detract from the experience. The shore is actually beyond the wetland area (maybe a quarter mile or so) but you can still hear the waves breaking which was nice. We mistakenly thought this place was right on the shore but it isn't, although it is an easy walk. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant on site and while the Duck Club isn't spectacular it was pretty good. The grounds are beautiful and it is a quite peaceful setting. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor of building #3, and thought it was very nice.

We recently stayed 2 nights at Bodega Bay Lodge and found it to be an excellent experience. The room was great, view of the harbor an absolute "10" and the restaurant exceptional. We ate dinner twice and breakfast twice there so we didn't have to find other places to have a nice variety and excellent service. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra to have a second floor room for the view of the harbor. There is no problem wit...

Our bike tour stayed for 2 nights. WOW! This is a very special place for romance, blissful relaxation , or both! Loved the location! The sounds of sea lions on an island in the bay are amazing. The fog horn may bother your sleep. I used ear plugs. Really great breakfast and dinner in the Duck Club! The spa and pool were wonderful destinations after day cycling steep hills in the area! Take a hike up on Bodega Head nearby. We saw many whales migrating!

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs!
