Our view was fabulous! We had a view of Bodega Bay as well as a pasture with cows roaming close to our building throughout the day. The flowers and trees, along with the aged wood of the buildings were beautiful. We had complimentary box breakfasts and everyone was helpful. The only thing I would recommend is that the front desk people have masks available for those of us senior citizens from counties that no longer have a strict mask requirement and forget to mask up on occasion. That way. No one is uncomfortable.

Thank you for the really nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed our property and hope you come and stay again. Usually we have a stash of masks available. We must have run out. They do sell them at our convenience store the Tides 76 gas station. Hopefully we won't have to wear them much longer. Take care and again, thank you.

The view was amazing. The rooms are older, I was expecting a little more especially with the cost but again the view was great. With Covid the spa was shut down as was indoor dining. The pool looked inviting and was heated, I didn't indulge due to the outdoor temperature. I stayed in a second floor room which I recommend for the view. I would like to re visit once things open back up and would probable upgrade the room to a suit with a balcony or patio. (I had a deluxe King with vaulted ceilings)

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We look forward to your return and to getting things back open once the health order is revised. Thank you again.

Location, location, location. The views are stunning. The accommodations are standard. There are no microwaves or refrigerators in the room. It may have indicated in the description and I just didn't catch it. It would have been very welcome in the time of COVID when you have to have take out. We were not instructed at check in that there would not be cleaning services (although it did indicate on an enclosure we later discovered). When inquired we were told it was a state mandate. My husband travels for work and no other hotel has implemented such standards.

The Sonoma County health order takes precedence over the state orders and does not allow staff to enter guests rooms during their stay. Glad you found the information in the welcome packet. We do not have refrigerators or microwaves and we never will and your right, that information is probably buried in all the room details and descriptions, easily looked over. We appreciate your feedback and are very happy you enjoyed the location and the views. Hopefully you can return when Covid is over and all of our amenities will be open for you-hot tub, sauna and fitness room. Stay safe!

Beautiful grounds and great view of water. Loved the hot tub and swimming pool. To go breakfast was available each morning.

We had a lovely stay and liked everything about the room except the bed. It was too hard and bumpy. It left me and my husband with backaches each morning. The view, location, and shower were great!

We are so sorry your bed was uncomfortable. We get so many compliments on our mattresses we actually keep the model number at the front desk for when guests ask. We are glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and thank you for providing feedback.

Beautiful, quiet, peaceful grounds. Room was spacious, large windows, and we loved having a wood burning fireplace. Only thing missing was a refrigerator.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do not plan on adding refrigerators. The few we have are lent out on a first come first served basis. Your best bet is to ask for an ADA room or to book one of our suites. All of our suites have them and ADA rooms have them to store potential medicine. Another neat hint, if you don't mind NOT having a bathtub (ADA rooms have roll in showers) is that usually ADA rooms are left empty, so if you need an early check in most of the time they are available before regular rooms are. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and we hope to see you again.
