Charming Hotel
We absolutely adored our stay at Valley Ford Hotel. Located in the heart of Tomales Bay Area the hotel offered quick access to a handful of amazing restaurants, creameries and wineries. Would absolutely come back and stay again!

Not for young people, not hospitable
this place is just okay. we stayed for the weekend because of the close proximity to the coast. Just an fyi before you go, this place has no AC. Not their fault but we did not realize this before we booked. My advice to VFH would be to add an extra fan in the room. There wasn’t much to do in Valley Ford, and the environment of the whole town wasn’t super welcoming. When we arrived we spoke to 2 people who were super nice, but seemed like a chance encounter and were never around any other employees after that. The room was okay. Decorated kinda plainly but fit the theme of the hotel. On our last day, we had to take a cold shower as well. They might not have a large water heater but that’s something we think they should’ve disclosed. No breakfast, understandable because of COVID. The restaurant was an hour wait to eat, so we didn’t get the chance to try it. Definitely not a hotel or b and b, more like renting a room. Not the best spot for young people, can see the appeal for older crowds.
