The room itself was very nice. We had a queen bed, table, sink, microwave and frig. When we turned on the faucets, however, there was only a trickle of water. The screens on the faucets were totally clogged with grit! We had to just leave them off while we were there but did replace them when we left. With the... More

here is my complaint to the BBB : My girlfriend recently visited from Canada. She is a GM of a very large store and needs to stay "connected" at all times. We had a last minute change in plans and arrived 1 day early and asked if they could accommodate us. They could. We were told the wifi was sketchy... More

We are sorry that our "free wifi" did not meet your business needs during your stay at our lodge. As you are aware, we are located in a very remote area in Northern California coast, where there is NO cell phone reception and DSL has just been installed. We DO NOT claim on our website to have wifi in our... More

HIll Rooms are pricey but well worth it. There isn't much in the way of service to speak of. Which means that you can really have your privacy. There's no maid service to wake you in the morning, etc. Everything is closed down by 9:00 pm, so plan ahead, the store closed before the front desk.

The Fort Ross Lodge in Jenner was a delightful, quiet haven for a relaxing beachfront stay. Although there was significant road construction underway on Highway 1, the driving delays were the only drawback and presumably they will not last forever. The rooms on the Hill were out-of-the way (which I enjoy), very clean and there was excellent wifi - which... More

I'd give the lodge 5 stars if it had a restaurant within walking distance. Very nice, spacious rooms. Incredible views of the Pacific. Flowers everywhere. Nice patio for each room. The rooms have a little kitchen area, a dining area, and a large bathroom.
