Located in Bodega Bay, The Inn at the Tides is by the ocean and it is very convenient to Sonoma County and Marin County.

This hotel is about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

I went there on the weekend of President’s Day and Valentine’s day. As I left San Fransisco and took the Pacifica road 1, I kept running  in and out of phone and internet service .

I wanted to make sure the Inn knew I was checking out but a lot later than planned. I wanted to make sure they knew I was coming.  I kept trying to call them and literally each times after I introduce myself, I would hit a bad service spot and the connection was lost. I must of called back at least 1o times, and the person at the front desk , never lost her patience.

When, finally I was able to get an entire conversation, I was able to get directions. I was late getting there,  around 9pm. I was jet lag, wired, excited and hungry.

I went to my “room”. It was an absolutely incredible setting. Set as little Cottages, I was  very pleased to see the attention to very small details. Waiting for me , and welcoming me in the room was a complimentary bottle of local wine.

The pillowtop bed came with down comforters and was so comfortable.

The wireless Internet access was complimentary, a plus as so many places lately I have to pay for the service. We had a beautiful flat screen TV with cable programming.

The very spacious bathroom had complimentary toiletries and hair dryer. There was a spa and an outdoor  pool right outside of our cottage.

Breakfast was complimentary at the Tides restaurant across from the Inn. The menu had many choices.

The restaurant was also incredible. You can ask for a table with the view right on the water. A row of tables were right with the view on the water.  The bathrooms were very clean, the service great and the food very fresh.

This is really a place I would recommend anybody to stay!
