Fodor's Expert Review Bodega Bay Lodge

103 Coast Hwy. 1, Bodega Bay, California, 94923, USA

Looking out to the ocean across a wetland, the lodge's shingle-and-river-rock buildings contain Bodega Bay's finest accommodations. Spacious rooms are appointed with high-quality bedding; most have fireplaces, patios or balconies, and ocean views, while some have vaulted ceilings and jetted tubs. In the health complex, state-of-the-art fitness equipment sparkles and guests can make appointments for facials, massages and other body treatments. The ocean-view Drakes Sonoma Coast Kitchen ($$$$) serves seafood along with bricked half chicken, pan-seared duck breast, and an applewood-smoked pork chop. In season, try the Dungeness crab cakes with tomato-ginger chutney. The resort is operated by Woodside Hotels, a trusted upscale brand with hotels in key California vacation spots.
