Beautiful venue.

Posted Sep 16, 2017
Pros: Beautiful room. Clean and large. Wine and cheese from 5-6 complimentary
Cons: Elevators, but hard to do as several separate buildings. Just ask for main floor room when booking if you need it.
Grounds are beautiful with several things to do. Wish we could have stayed more than one night.

gorgeous grounds and location but some issues

Posted Sep 12, 2017
Pros: grounds, landscaping, rooms, fire pits, lounging areas, hotel staff, pool, gym, spa, view, proximity to walking trails,
Cons: AC, ability to control temperature in room, in room electronic setup
Location: dramatic ocean beach cliffs/hiking at the end of westshore rd near campbell cove beach, food restaurants, salt water taffy, crab fishing
GOOD: Staff is exceptional. Very helpful and available. The landscaping and hotel grounds are breathtakingly beautiful. The infinity spa, pool, gym and health spa facility are really cool. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and balconies overlooking the bay if you pay extra as we did. We had spa treatments that were quite good. They take place in single rooms built into the pool area facility. The esthetician and masseuse were good. OK: the restaurant on facility was average in quality with somewhat poor service. We waiting a long time to give our breakfast order and the food did not impress my mom. The ham was too fatty, i guess. cool decor though COMPLAINTS: the room was incredibly stuffy! As explained by front desk, the hotel doesn't usually "need AC", so the rooms are not equipped with it. We paid a high price for our room and feel that controlling the temperature of the room is a basic amenity. We were very hot! We could easily have opened the balcony door, but there was a thick, wet fog coming in that also obstructed the view the whole time. We were offered a fan that was delivered within seconds of request, but still felt uncomfortable the whole night and did not sleep well. Some of the electronics in the room were not functional or dated. For such a fancy hotel, I would almost expect a smart TV. The bose bluetooth speaker in the room didn't work.

Very Nice and expensive but, no A/C

Posted Sep 6, 2017
Pros: clean
Cons: Add A/C so the very few times it's needed, it is available to your guests.
It was very nice but no A/C. We were there during the heat wave and pretty much could not get comfortable. They provided a fan but, it just blew hot air around. Take that into account when booking here.

Customer service extraordinary

Posted Sep 3, 2017
We were impressed with the customer service. This hotel is our new favorite. The view of the beach and bay from our room kept us on the deck most of the time we're not actually on the beach.

Beautiful facilities, million-dollar view!

Posted Aug 23, 2017
We stayed one night at the hotel with our 21-year old son. It was just lovely! We enjoyed the pool, as well as an evening dip in the outdoor hot tub. We used the walking trails through the bird sanctuary both at dusk and at sunrise. We highly recommend the Bodega Bay Lodge!

Great location with beautiful bay view/wildlife

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Location: Wildlife preserve within walking distance along bay. Sailboarding, surfing and fishing close by.
Staff was courteous, prompt and professional. Restaurant was excellent and accommodating. The pool, spa and showers were refreshing, in perfect working order and clean. Our room was tasteful and well appointed. We were not disturbed by noises outside. The food and desserts were excellent and moderately priced for a lodge of this quality. We agreed our stay was a "10" and will definitely return on our next trip down the coast.
