"Nice break close to the vineyards"
Great spot. View, food and comfort. Plan to book again. Close enough to wine country.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I planned a special weekend for myself and my two best friends from high school (38 years) and picked this hotel. Big mistake... HUGE mistake . Our room was disgusting! From the moment we stepped in the door, which wasn't easy because our darn door wouldn't open for at least five minutes, our room stunk like sour milk! First thing I did was open the […] back door and the windows . The room was so out dated , I thought we were back in high school ('70's). There was a welcoming party waiting for us to our surprise ...spiders, everywhere !!! We ended up killing over a dozen of them, and that was just the first night. I wonder what the neighbors thought with three ladies in their fifties screaming all night long ?!? Next, our bathroom stink was plugged the whole time , the drawers had garbage in them from previous guess, and if you were hungry , you could always eat the Cheetos that we found all over the floor. The only good thing about our room, I was with my besties and we could laugh about how disgusting it was! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location - will return"
We only had the chance to stay one night but we will definitely be back. Great location. The free breakfast across the street was good and has a terrific view of the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All good, but..."
Ice machine was so noisy and not too happy about booking thru Hotel.com. However, all else was really good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, peaceful stay!"
Great breakfast, nice to have a bottle of wine in the room. Such a pretty, peaceful property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really nice place in excellent location. Quiet, beautiful setting and balcony with views. Bathrooms could use a little updating and a fridge in room would be nice. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable place to stay for relaxing bayside."
My husband and I stay here when we go to Bodega Bay. Easy to find. Excellent food across the road. Lovely view of the bay from the window. Easy parking. Very nice hotel people. The 4-plex set-up feels private. We look forward to staying here on our overnight trips.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view of Bodega Bay"
We booked on short notice and arrived before the hotel had word of our reservation. They'd booked our room, but the front desk agent was able to put us into a wonderful, spacious room that overlooked the bay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay at the Tides"
It was the perfect destination for our 1 night getaway! Every room has a view of the bay. Our room was clean, cozy, and quiet. The view was incredible and the food from the Bay view restaurant and lounge was 5 star. We will definitely visit again soon!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Saved my marriage! Thank you Inn at the Tides!"
Took my wife there for one romantic night to try and convince her to rethink the divorce. I never said anything about the D word but just told her I got a hotel near the beach and would she like to go stay for a night just to hang out again. Worked like a charm. Back together again. Oh and did I mention the beds and pillows were so awesome that I have […] never slept on a more comfortable bed ever ever ever! Great view of the ocean...etc. Great dinner, great breakfast. Did I mention the cute otters? I otter remember that! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"service was minimal"
The quality of service and room were not exceptional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It could have been cleaner and the tv was very fuzzy the back door lock was loose the light switch in bath was loose. But we had a very enjoyable time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
convenient restaurants , breakfast vouchers, clean pool and spa area.complimentary bottle of wine was a welcome surprise as well as a 20% discount for the Inn of the Tides restaurant which by the way had excellent food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"June 2014 Stay"
Hotel staff was courteous and accommodating to what we required during our stay. Extremely pricey but that was known going in... There was, however, a rather profound natural gas (propane) leak that one could smell from the road (highway 1) that extended half way up the hill, into the lodge. There were no explosions during our stay, fortunately, and […] certainly it will be resolved soon. Overall stay was pleasant and we had a nice visit... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was good overall. There was a gas smell during our stay that was very very strong. The front desk said it was coming through the drain from the farm up the hill. Kinda weird but whatever it is, it stinks bad and I could smell it inside our room sometimes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is dated with very comfortable beds, quiet, great views, waken by the moos of cows, comes with a full breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was Okay"
1. The room was clean. 2. check in was fast. 3. Location was perfect.4. Found no hot water late in the evening, took an hour to get hot water to the room. 5. The room heater never came on. 6. At check out, staff was very " oh well " when the two issues were brought up. We are not going to stay here again. No WiFi as listed in the amenities. Not listed […] No microwave, No refrigerator.

"Location is very good."
Great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Where do I begin? The room had wallpaper pealing off. There was no bathtub. It was like taking a shower at a campsite. It had a fold down seat in the shower and the shower marking for hot and cold were backwards. The ice machine started buzzing 1:15 in the morning. When I called the front desk, they told me it was the fog horn from the bay. Really!!!! […] They finally came out at 1:30 and unplugged the ice machine. The guy who came out was not friendly at all. Over all I paid way too much money for the room. It was not worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There were no local telephone directories in room Front end desk, to us, lacks customer service assistance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For a Bodega hotel I would have expected more. They are on the right track, there was complementary wine in the room, but it was undrinkable, The maids started cleaning the rooms around us at 8 am so it was noisy and we decided to get up and leave rather then the leisure morning we would have like to have. I don't think I will be back which is sad since […] that was where I came on my honeymoon 20 years ago! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oasis in Bodaga"
Tides Inn provided privacy and a much needed immaculate getaway on our Hwy. 1 trip up the west coast. A bottle of wine awaits guests in a plush and comfortable suite. Our Hotel.com price seemed a bit expensive compared to the other choices, but once you factor in the bottle of wine, complimentary Full sit down breakfast, a 20% discount at their reasonable […] and delicious restaurant,, the use of a gym hot tub and sauna, the room was a actually a bargain. Love the History of the bay - setting of the Hitchcock movie "The Birds" and an old whaling village. A must stay locarion. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful views of Bodega Bay"
Nice and relaxing. Good free breakfast at Tides and Bay View restaurant had great service and new Italian inspired menu.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This Inn's beauty is skin deep"
In its heydey, I am sure that this was a great place to stay...and it still looks good from the outside. However, especially considering the price, those days are gone and the hotel is in need of a decent renovation. The good: the beds were comfortable, the staff friendly and the maids did a good job with the daily cleaning. The bad: the room was not […] well-maintained from a long-term standpoint. There was a huge wood "patch" in the bathroom where a refrigerator (?) used to be, many of the fixtures were outdated and the room itself suffered from the kind of dinginess that one finds in hotels that are cleaned daily....but not fully cleaned as often as needed. The rooms are smaller compared to comparably priced rooms elsewhere. And the breakfast included in the price comes with a very limited menu and the staff is allowed very little discretion when it comes to reasonable substitutions. Bottom line: this is a quaint little inn that, with a little bit of care and a few upgrades could warrant a higher rating. As it stands now, it is a high-priced disappointment whose only draw is location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Tired, nice bay vus"
the lady that checked us in seemed as if she needed to retire, in fact the wait staff at The Tides Restaurant (a/x street from Inn) had that same attitude.Then there's the smokers in the room below us (this is a non smoking property) we were moved to another room (inconvenience but was a much nicer view & we liked the location better). The staff when […] called were responsive & effort was made to remedy the problem promptly. Cannot comment on the restaurant onsite as we dined at the Bodega Bay Lodge and it was fabulous!! The Inn at the Tides is looking tired and could use some cosmetic uplifts, but the hot tub was nice and the grounds are well maintained. Beds comfortable with double sheeting. Although we left windows open the room never lost the stuffy smell, we both were clogged up the next day. I would suggest a thurough deep antibacterial cleaning & air out rooms. Beautiful location for hiking & vus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this room for the proximity to the beach and the in room fireplaces. It was a very rustic hotel and the fireplace worked well. The room was clean and smelled like a campfire which I thought gave it a nice outdoorsy touch. Wish that I had known that there were rooms with patios, as the view was great of the ocean and I would have tried to book […] one of those instead. We were pleased with the staff they were accommodating and we got free breakfast across the street at the restaurant that they filmed the movie "The Birds". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"views were great; unexpectedly nice place"
a really nice start to our time in California; we will be back! Most responsive when we left item in room upon checkout.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We will be back"
Wine in our room on arrival, firewood stocked and great view. We didnt want to leave the room. Hotel staff was great and breakfast was wonderful at the restaurant acrossed the street. Next time we want to try dinner there. We also found a great camp site and are going back with the kids in June. Loved it. It was everything we wanted and needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and the staff were very nice to deal with. however, the rooms were in need of maintenance for weather resistance, etc. The steep climb to the room was tiring but pretty. The view was nice. They need to disclose more information about the dining accommodations to the guests. Bed was surprisingly comfortable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice location, great breakfast, spotty wi-fi"
The hotel is in a beautiful location in the town where Hitchcock filmed The Birds. The hotel buildings are gradually being refurbished. Our room was in one of the as-yet-unrefurbished buildings -- or so I hope. The bathroom decor was out of the 80s. Wallpaper was peeling off the wall in the main room. But the room was in a spectacular spot with an amazing […] view of the bay. The TV is new. Breakfast was terrific. And we slept well both nights. Wi-fi didn't work the first night of our stay even though we asked about it several times. Cell phone coverage is weak, so wi-fi was very important to us. For our second night, wi-fi was working excellently. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay in spite of the minor complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is my second stay. The room was very comfortable and clean. Right on the coast so all the rooms seem to have a view of Bodega Bay. There is no smoking so the room had a pleasant odor. The hotel offered a free bottle of wine for tasting which was a pleasant surprise and the breakfast at the restaurant right on the Bay was perfect. Although we didn't […] go swimming I remember the pool and spa as exceptional. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Bed was hard and uncomfortable...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pool, hot tub, and sauna were awesome. However, the fog horn, lack of updating, and just over all cheaper décor was a disappointment. Will try another place next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Relaxing weekend. Pity the food suckedGenuine Expedia guest review
"noisy ice maker & no water pressure"
Very noisy ice maker right outside the room. Very low water pressure. I will not go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved the view from our room! Even though it was a partial ocean view it was amazing and the patio off of our room was perfect. We loved sitting out there! The room was clean and the complimentary breakfast was so good. I recommend staying here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, spacious rooms."
The bed was very comfortable. The shower had very good water pressure. We were given a first floor room that is for the handicapped. The only problem was the "booster" seat on the toilet. I'm short and it was not comfortable. Being on the first floor, the window blinds did not seem to block any possible view to in the inside. Recommend different window […] coverings to protect privacy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Restaurant Was A Nice Surprise"
This hotel has a nice location on a hill with ocean views. There isn't really much at all in Bodega Bay, so this would be the best place to stay. We felt that the room was overpriced because it was rather shabby & worn. There was something going on with tile floor in the bathroom that made it look dirty, maybe it was just worn. The rug in the bath was […] all tattered & stringy & ready to be retired, made a bad impression. There was no channel guide in the room for the TV (we wanted to watch March Madness) and when we asked for one the lady at the front desk seemed annoyed. She was less than friendly when we checked in. The best thing was the restaurant on the premises that serves dinner. We didn't expect much and we were very pleased to have a very nice meal. The food was very good and the service was excellent. They give you a 20% discount if you're staying there and it made it very reasonable. The complimentary breakfast at the restaurant down by the water was also very nice, a real sit down and order from the menu breakfast. They also gave us a complimentary bottle of wine in our room, a nice touch. Times have been tough for the travel industry the last few years, but they do need to reinvest in this hotel to make the prices appropriate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wood burning fireplace and a view of the sea"
It was a nice stay overall. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel provided wood and kindling for the fireplace, and a bottle of wine, nice way to spend a rainy night. The hotel is built into the hillside across the street (hwy 1) from the beech, so it is not possible to wander to the shore anytime you want. The location provides excellent […] views from most rooms. Many people have commented on the outdated finishes and the need for redecorating. The tiles and wall coverings are Nondescript, but could date back to the 80's or later. They are, however in good condition, no sign of mold or peeling, so leave it alone!

"Very nice hotel!"
I was hesitate to book on Expedia due to having a horrible experience with hotels.com. but we booked our room as a last minute weekend getaway. We got the very last room they had, so I had no idea what it would be like. But it turned out to be a great room with a great view of the bay. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. They also give […] you a complimentary breakfast which I thought would just be a continental breakfast but was actually a limited menu with omelets, eggs,potatoes,toast, pancakes, french toast and biscuits and gravy among a few other items. It was very good also. The Bay View Restaurant on site with the Inn was also very good! We had a great weekend! I highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't listen to YELP, this place is super nice"
Took a chance on this spot, given the 2.5 YELP review at the time of booking. Ended up, surprised and pleased. Nice rooms in separate multi-room buildings, great views, and an excellent pool, sauna, and jacuzzi area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value, view of the bay."
Clean, comfortable bed. Nice location. Great for the price. Even our downstairs unite of 2queen beds had a view of the bay. Free breakfast was great, a real meal with drink for free, can't beat that!Genuine Expedia guest review
