Rooms are small; but you are able to use the Lodge Great Room at any time of day, where you can sit by the fire or watch the birds out the window facing the bay. There is a catwalk where you can walk over the marsh and enjoy the wildlife for hours. Great views throughout the motel. Rooms have a...

My wife and I spent two nights here while we explored Point Reyes. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The back deck has a beautiful view. My wife and I enjoyed the large common room where we played pool and cards at night. One of the other guests built a fire that we all enjoyed. We...

This is a motel, not a b&b, or a boutique hotel or whatever. This is small motel right on the Inverness Marsh (Tomales Bay). Most rooms are standard motel rooms opening onto the parking lot. The view from these rooms is through the bathroom window.Some rooms have been converted to "view rooms" by adding a window, door, deck on the...

A 1950's remodeled 7 room motel. A great bargain at the coast of California. It's on Tamales Bay and has a great view from the motel. Small rooms at the lodge building but if you get one with a deck you'll love sitting out at all times of the day and watching the birds and the bay. They don't serve...

We came to California for 3 weeks in July, and stayed in 8 different places, and Motel Inverness was our favorite. This is a gorgeous getaway to reconnect with nature, and have your breath taken away, day after day. Shannon and Lynn helped us with everything from which trails to hike, to which restaurant to go to, and then made...

This motel is in a fantastic location overlooking the lagoon, with a boardwalk across the marsh, a pleasant outside seating area and lots of bird feeders. Wildlife abounds - California Quail, Anna's Hummingbirds, Grey Fox, woodpeckers etc. The rooms are well turned out including the shared lounge area and there's lots of information about local wildlife. The manager is friendly...

A lovely spot; great manager - knowledgeable and helpful; great porch and common room; delightful to spend time outside and watch quail and hummers. Give it a try ! The proximity to Point Reyes Station allows access to a couple of nice restaurants.

My husband and I agreed after our recent vacation driving up the coast of California that Point Reyes was the place we would most like to return to; however, we also agreed that we would not be returning to the Motel Inverness. There are real positives to this motel, as other reviewers have mentioned: the lodge is great and the...

It was very peaceful and relaxing to be either in the common area with the big fireplace, eating our al fresco dinner, or on the deck, watching birds and enjoying the sun and the view. This is a lovely little place, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Not much to do w/out a car, but this is in...
