Fabulous Time

Wonderful to have free parking, internet and full breakfast included with the room charge. The staff was friendly, helpful, and responsive. The restaurant at Inn at the Tides Wharfside (they also have a Bayview Restaurant attached to the hotel registration area on the land side of Highway One) had some of the best Bay views I have ever seen with half wall glass windows that enable you to see seals, birds, and magnificent water/sky views. The best part of a Bodega Bay stay is the magnificent beach access. Either Doran State Park or Salmon Creek State Park provide some of the finest beach walks in Northern California.
