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.

Beautiful property close to water

Posted Jun 22, 2017
The hotel was beautiful and very family friendly. There is a great restaurant onsite which was top notch! You can walk to the water from the hotel which is very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again! The staff is very attentive and friendly. Upon check in our room was not ready and they gave us a complimentary bottle Of wine - very classy!

Beautiful location

Posted Jun 3, 2017
Pros: Updated and luxurious rooms with view. Nice grounds and gardens. Excellent restaurant.
Cons: Beverage and food prices are a bit high.
Location: Excellent location for exploring CA coast. Near Pt Reyes, Inverness, Tomales Bay, Wineries, Oyster Farms, great food.
Lovely gardens. Pool and hot tub look out to bay/ocean. Rooms are updated and have lovely views. Firepit has bay/ocean view and food and beverage service. Dining is excellent, although a bit pricey. Great location for exploring coast. Pt Reyes and Tomales Bay are a lovely drive. Lots of Oyster eating nearby!

Overall rating would have been a 5 EXCEPT...

Posted May 28, 2017
Pros: Well kept, excellent location
Cons: Couldn't hurt to have some sort of a simple continental breakfast (perhaps just a variety of danishes) to go with their coffee in the morning.
Location: The resort has bicycles which you easily check out at the front desk. The ride out to the nearby beach and campground is easy.
Our 33rd Wedding anniversary would have been perfect except for two things. 1: the complimentary wine between 5 and 6 should have been just more than a wine tasting. A full glass of wine would have been great. 2: This was a situation not entirely under the control of the resort and its staff. A silicon valley company was celebrating its 30th anniversary and the approx 40 employees they bused to the resort for the weekend were a bit noisy through the night and well into the early morning hours. It was a shame to have to shut the windows and activate the sound machine in order to get some sleep. When the situation was reported to the front desk the next morning, the response regarding quiet hours was that they really didn't have any. Our second night started out noisy again but we were prepared with sound machine and earplugs so really don't know if it was as bad as our Friday night. The hotel staff probably should have monitored the situation a bit closer out of respect for all the other guests on campus.

Don, Thank you for your recent stay and congratulations on your amazing 33 years of marriage! We appreciate all the feedback, balanced as it is. We do at times have groups come to the Lodge and work with them to insulate our non-group guests but in your case you were still impacted negatively. Please accept my apologies as we pride ourselves on being that escape from the craziness of the world we live in. Please do come back again and we can always arrange a quiet room for you!
