We stayed here three nights on the recommendation of our daughter. Our room had 2 bedrooms with queen beds, a kitchenette, 2 televisions, a LARGE bathroom, and a deck overlooking the Tamales Bay. Everything about this place is first class; you could not find any place better for experiencing all the activities for Pt. Reyes Seashore. This is an ideal...

Thank you so much for your complimentary review. You stayed in our Heart's Desire Suite which is our largest and includes all the amenities you mentioned. I love it when someone recommends us to another guest and they enjoy their stay as much if not more than the person that recommended it to them. This seems to be case for...

Spent the day driving the coast and spotted a no vacancy sign on this quaint little motel. Looked to be recently remodeled or just kept in very good condition. They only had one room left, which had two single beds, probably better suited for kids but was fine by me. I poured a glass of wine and walked out the...

This was my 3rd visit. This time I was in room 6. The room is a little small but it had all that I needed. The shower stall is a little tight and the walls are a little thin but when I was there all of the guests were very quiet. There is some road noise but when the traffic...

Stayed here while on a visit to the Point Reyes National Seashore. Small place significantly upgraded from what obviously was once a little roadside strip motel. Adding on an airy and beautiful “Common Room” and a deck with fabulous views over the marshlands and including a well-appointed bathroom in each room turned this place into a desirable stay, indeed. The...

Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive review. All of your positive points were on target especially the your note about how peaceful it is here.

Your review is very appreciated. Your comments about the abundant bird life, and the spectacular setting are the reasons our guests stay with us.

Our third stay here and we love it! The rooms appear to have been redecorated for the better since we were last here two years ago. The coffee machine is all set up (with fresh ground beans and clear and concise instructions) to be brewed by the first guest arising in the morning. The room pricing is fair. And the...

Spent 3 nights here during a long overdue trip to explore the Point Reyes area. It is a lovely place to stay, reminiscent of a small lodge or inn---rustic but extremely comfortable. Room #3 was a bit small, but it was clean, the bed was comfortable, and I slept well. Coffee is in the room, and the main room has...

Second time we've stayed here with friends while visiting Point Reyes, and I'm sure we'll be back again. Our room was well appointed and the great coffee, tea and biscuits in the lounge were much appreciated. The owners are helpful and interesting - much more of a B&B feel than a "motel" - just without the breakfast. (Very nice nearby...

The room is with a heater (but gets noisy at night). Hot showers and a very nice comfy bed. Looks like a paradise for bird-watchers. Common lounge has fire place, a small pantry, big sofas and binoculars to spy on the birds outside. Overall very good experience.
