Why Stay With Us

Here are some of the reasons why our guests have made us their first choice when visiting Bodega Bay and the spectacular Sonoma Coast.  We look forward welcoming you, and sharing this beautiful part of California with you.

The best location in Bodega Bay. We are located on a quiet and romantic coastal perch (away from the traffic of Highway 1) offering memorable views of the Bay, Bodega Head and the Pacific Ocean, and a short walk down to Doran Beach Regional Park.

Our guests love us. We have many loyal, repeat guests and are the #1 rated hotel in Bodega Bay on the popular customer travel review site TripAdvisor.com, and the Lodge is the only AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel on the California coast between San Francisco and Mendocino.

A boutique lodge with resort amenities. We offer great resort amenities like a top-rated restaurant, a casual fireside bar, highly personalized spa services, heated pool and whirlpool spa, excellent fitness center with the latest equipment—all on beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds.

Excellent food and wine. Our Duck Club Restaurant offers Sonoma Coastal cuisine, highlighting the produce, seafood, dairy and meats of Sonoma and Marin Counties' small family farms. Our Drake’s Fireside Lounge offers more casual setting for highly approachable and local food and drinks.

Great local knowledge. Our friendly team has the best local knowledge and access to activities, excursions and adventures. Whether it's your first or your 50th visit to the Sonoma Coast, we are pleased to assist you with reservations, great ideas and to arrange interesting itineraries.

We don't nickel and dime you. We provide an excellent value with complimentary Wi-Fi, complimentary evening wine reception, and complimentary Peet’s coffee and teas in the lobby throughout the day.

Locally owned. We are an independent, locally owned and operated hotel, and we take great satisfaction in making your stay on the coast wonderfully memorable. Have questions? Call us, and a real person will answer the phone!
