“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2010

The Inn at the Tides is a great place to stay! The view is spectacular, the pool is secluded and relaxing, and the rooms are spacious and clean. They even have their own restaurant across the street. Bodega Bay is such a hidden gem, and this place was a great central location to all the action there. Who doesn't love waking up to a gentle foghorn?

This hotel is a bit dated but I loved the location and the grounds. We had an ocean view and the grounds and pool were lovely. The free breakfast across the street was nice but I wouldn't recommend having dinner there as the service is slow and food is average and a bit overpriced.

we mostly stay at the middle of the road priced hotels- this time we stepped up a bit and went to the tides- we selected a room with a view and a fireplace- it was very nice and clean- even a bottle of wine for the 1st night- a free breakfast at the tides restaurant across the street it was very good and filling-the staff was great and the grounds are beautiful it is a good bang for the buck.

We love the location of The Inn at the Tides and have stayed several times.This time was our last. The check-in was late..... as always and the desk service was awful. Not friendly or accomodating at all. I hate to spend $250.00 a night for a room that you can't even get into until 4:00!!

I had planned a getaway weekend with my husband for a night to this hotel and we were extremely disappointed, to say the least. Staying at home would have been more relaxing and economical!

To begin with, our requirement was to have a wi-fi connection in whichever hotel we stay at since we're both professionals and needed to be online. They advertised and promised wi-fi but once we got to our room, neither their wi-fi nor ethernet connection was working in that room. In addition, the neighbors next door were loud and we could hear their conversations as if they were in our room. Our room stunk of some sort of cleaning supply they had used to clean the room/carpet. Note that this was their "king room" for which we paid 243$ for one night!

When we told them about the internet problem in the room, they didn't bother to send anyone to look at the problem and did not even let us switch the room after we told them about the problems. To top it all, we woke up in the middle of the night with weird animal noises that we thought were coming from our bathroom. We called them to send someone to help and there was only one guy at the desk who told us he can't leave the desk to come help us! Not only were we pissed but scared at this point to be in this room. We found later that there were jackals outside the room scavenging for food in the leftovers that our neighbors had left outside. Unimaginable!

So we had to sit through a weekend of no internet connectivity, noisy neighbors and a below average room/amenities. And we paid for this!! Really regret this choice. I feel robbed of my money and time.

The staff were courteous and professional. Our room was clean, comfortable and had an incredible view of the bay and Bodega Head. Altogether made for an excellent stay. My wife and I are looking forward to our next visit.

The hotel is made up of multiple buildings so it feels more like an apartment or condo complex. The bottle of wine at check-in was a nice touch. There's a little wear and tear here and there but the rooms have a nice homelike feel to them so you're very likely to not notice. The nice big windows that open and face the water are more worthy of your attention. If you leave them open at night though, keep in mind you might get to hear the fog horn down on the bay.

Be advised the breakfast that is included is at the restaurant across the street and is only a continental breakfast. So if something else on the menu looks good to you, you're on the hook for the bill. It's a nice place for breakfast, right on the bay with wildlife viewing opportunities.
