It was a great stay, with a clean, cozy room, and I really enjoyed hanging out in the comfy lodge. The staff was very personable, friendly, and extremely helpful, especially when we found ourselves in a bind, without transportation, and needing to do wedding related activities. Our wedding brunch was literally SAVED due to the kind and sacrificial efforts of...

Thank you so much for sharing your experience during your stay. Our interim Innkeepers were here for 10 days making it possible for us to take a vacation.

We stayed in October. Check in was a breeze. The lady at the desk made us feel welcome and gave us great information about local restaurants and showed us a map of point Reyes national seashore and told us what we could expect to see. Our room was clean and cozy. I loved to the boardwalk located off the back...

Have come here multiple times both as a solo and as a couple and recommend it without reservation.

Because the rooms patios face east, the sunrises can be quite spectacular . Although it woke me up, I appreciated the early morning on Inverness bay. Definitely rivaled the California sunset. The rooms are small but comfortable, clean and quiet. There is a communal facility and deck that is awesome. Also a small boardwalk out onto the bay. Really pretty...

An relaxing base for exploring the Point Reyes area. The motel is situated a few minutes drive between Inverness and Inverness Point and not far from Point Reyes Station.

Point Reyes Seashore was a nice one-day addition to our two-week California itinerary, and a great 'release' from the wonderful excitement of San Francisco.
