The grounds of the hotel are lovely and well kept. I only wish we had more than one night to enjoy... More

Very good price. Room decor was nice. The room was extremely clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. The hotel grounds were manicured and the view of the bay and beyond was first rate. Good coffee and continental breakfast the next morning.

We stayed in the Retreat off of the main hotel for a week during our wedding period. The space was fantastic and the only complaint I have is that the maid service didn't come for a few days while we were there. Other than that the view was fantastic. The large sloping lawn down to the Bay produced many great... More

I stayed at Ledges recently for the second time. Facilities were wonderful - comfortable, good amenities, beautiful and well-kept property that is peaceful, modern technology such as wireless internet and Blue Ray player. The heated pool was a treat. Free breakfast in beautiful sunny space with great view and binoculars. I will return often.

My fiancee and I stayed at Ledges by the Bay for 2 nights. The heated pool area was clean and great to spend lots of time in. The view from our ocean view balcony was breathtaking.
