Bodega Bay Hotels - Exploring Bodega Bay Hotels

inn highway ocean restaurant

Bodega Bay is a sleepy Northern California costal town that lies fifty miles North of San Francisco, along scenic highway 1. Bodega Bay garnered a small measure of fame as the setting for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror movie The Birds. The infamous Potter School House, made famous in the jungle gym scene of this film, still sits stoically on the hill above the town, turned into a private residence. The small cafe where Tippi Hedren took refuge from a sea gull attack has been greatly expanded into an elegant restaurant and gift shop, known as The Tides Wharf Restaurant. The rest of the town has changed little since Hollywood’s cameras shined a spotlight here almost fifty years ago. Sleepy beach cottages dot the narrow neighborhood streets and cling to the wind blown ocean side cliffs. Bed And Breakfast’s dot the highway and hide in quaint residential areas. If you don’t mind the possibility of birds suddenly turning into zombie like warrior monsters (which only happens in Hollywood and in novels) Bodega Bay is the perfect getaway for those seeking a respite from the rigors of work and a fast pace lifestyle. Let’s take a look at some unique Bodega Bay hotels.

The Classic Bed and Breakfast is this town’s specialty. Bodega Bay Inn is a charming cottage with seven guest rooms, perched on the hillside. Though there is only a small ocean view, there is a charming art gallery and garden. There is an emphasis on eclectic folk art, which lends a unique atmosphere to this little Inn. As Bodega Bay hotels go, this gem is sublime in providing a peaceful retreat. You can find the Bodega Bay Inn along Highway 1 at 1588 East Shore Road and is Triple A Approved.

Bodega Coast Inn And Suites has sweeping ocean views from every room as well as the swimming. Each guest room is small to moderate in size with a queen or king size bed, free Wi-Fi, microwave, refrigerator and hair dryer. Some suites have fireplaces and there is one room that boasts a heart shaped whirl pool spa tub. Accommodations at this Bodga Bay hotel are comfortable and reasonably priced. They offer several vacation packages including the Bodega Bay Fishing Package, the Stay And Play Golf Package and most unique of all, the Alfred Hitchcock Package which includes a free DVD of the film and an unguided tour of the locations where the movie was made. Bodega Coast Inn And Suites is located at 521 Coast Highway 1.

For a more upscale experience, The Bodega Bay Lodge is an elegant establishment nestled in the purple hills above the town with a stunning views of the pacific ocean on all sides. This Bodga Bay hotel is designed to look like an upscale mountain lodge, with impressive beamed ceilings in the grand lobby. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed with antique modern furnishing. Many have fireplaces and balconies. There is also a fitness center, a spa and a fine dining restaurant called The Duck Club. The Bodega Bay Lodge is located at 103 Coast Highway 1.

The Inn At The Tides is a collection of cape code style cottages next to The Tides Wharf Restaurant. Rooms have either queen or king beds, with the king rooms also outfitted with a a fireplace. Most rooms have magnificent ocean views and easy access to the restaurant and wharf. There is a sauna, whirlpool, pool spa and fitness center. Rooms are a little small, but adequate. The Inn At The Tides is located at 800 Highway 1.

There is something to delight every visitor exploring Bodega Bay hotels, from small, homey Bed And Breakfast’s to elegant hillside lodges. These establishments are reasonably priced, well appointed with little touches of luxury, and nestled amongst some of the most gorgeous scenery California has to offer.
