Beautiful Hotel

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: Hot tub. Steam room. Restaurant. Private Balcony.
Cons: Walkways from the upper buildings to the rec/pool/restaurant area.
Location: Road riding Road running Beach running Dining Sight-seeing
This is a nice property close to the beach with amazing views. It's a beautiful place to get away from it all or to go be outdoors, like us, (or both!) for a training ride and run. The hot tub is amazing after a workout. The restaurant was nice as well.

Very nice stay

Posted Apr 18, 2017
My family and I greatly enjoyed our experience at Bodega Bay Lodge. Very clean, comfortable, and updated rooms nestled right along the bay with a great view! Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food at the on-site restaurant (Drake's) was tasty and fairly priced. Overall an excellent experience at Bodega Bay Lodge and would highly recommend you stay with these fine folks!

Great views

Very relaxing..rooms are clean and comfortable..calming by the bay. I recommend mid week stays if you want to use the jacuzzi and pool without all the kids around on weekends!

Lovely hotel, super comfortable bed, delicious restaurant. But why do they have to put the tempting treats in your room that they charge an exorbitant amount for?

Nice hotel with free wine-tasting

Posted Apr 7, 2017
Breath-taking view of bay by the hotel's fire pit. Nice pool and infinity hot tub, again with wonderful view. Great location next to beach- turns out hotel has a beach pass and we ended up paying for the parking at the beach. The high pitched foghorn may turn some people off but we were able to tolerate it. Maybe it is because our room close to parking lot rather than looking directly at the bay with less of view. Beds are on the small side. It comfy nonetheless. Free wine-tasting daily and that is the best thing! Restaurant setting is amazing but food can be hit or miss. Very kind staff, helpful in directing us sightseeing places, checked us out a pair of binoculars to see whales at the Head. Staff even sent us back what the kids left behind.

Nice hotel

Posted Apr 3, 2017
Very nice hotel. We arrived early so thought we would check to see if our room might be ready. We were told to check back in about 11/2 hours which we did room still not ready. Returned in about another 1 1/2 to be told it still was not ready. It was 4:00 pm. Then they upgraded us to a lovely room with a great view. It was pouring and therefore sat in our car. But as I stated in the beginning very nice hotel.

Sonoma Coast Treasure!

Posted Mar 27, 2017
We booked a last minute weekend through Expedia and received a reasonable price on an exception hotel. We live in Sonoma County so this was close yet felt like a real vacation. Lucked out with a beautiful sunny day and took advantage of the recommendations from the hotel website. Stopped at Lynmar and Merry Edwards winery in Sebastopol on our way. Lynmar was outstanding but you need a reservation. They were able to accommodate us but not happily, the grounds and the wine well worth the price of admission. We dinned at the Drakes Restaurant located at the Lodge, excellent food, service and atmosphere. The Fireside Bar was very noisy and seemed more like a hospital waiting room. Kids running, babies screaming, guests anxious, and the service was poor. Happy hour at 5:00 in the lobby, hotel staff, all top notch. We hiked Bodega Head and The Bird walk, both easy and scenic. EXCELLENT LAST MINUTE RETREAT!
