Nice place. Very clean. My only caveat would be if you are bringing a child, the 3rd person bed is more of a fold up sort of Futon style mattress rather than a bed so may not suit anyone taller than say 4ft or so. You could bring along a single size inflatable Coleman if you have a bigger kid.
Apart from that, it was all good. The hotel is old but all fixtures and fittings were in excellent working order and as I say kept very clean by the cleaning staff. There is a fridge in the room and on the landing is hot water, coffee, cold water, tea bags etc. They supply a continental breakfast on Sundays….maybe Saturdays also. The restaurant next door has a very wide ranging menu and should have something for all tastes. That was good also.

A friend & I were recently riding our bicycles from San Francisco up the coast, then across to CA wine country. There are not a lot of hotel options along the coast before reaching the Russian River, so we chose the Valley Ford Hotel. Although we weren't really sure what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations, the bar & restaurant, and the graciousness of the staff. Nothing fancy in this small town, but it was a perfect stop in preparation for continuing our journey.

Comfortable bed, VERY clean room, nice but simple restoration of an 1860s structure. The family-owned and run atmosphere is very relaxed but attentive to any communication. It was a perfect place to break our trip up the north coast. Restaurant downstairs but also a small fridge in room (we did not sample the restaurant).

Room Tip: The hotel is small (think of it as a large house), so all the rooms are about the same; have to clim...

With the summer heat in Sacramento, we were looking for a one night getaway by the Coast. Have driven through Valley Ford a million times on our way to Bodega Bay but never really stopped. After a chilly day on the beach (which we loved!) it was a perfect spot for a nice summer evening. Enjoyed watching the sun set while we sipped wine on the front porch of the hotel, then walked down the street for a delicious Italian dinner at Dinucci's. Rooms are small, but quaint, with antique furnishings and very nice linens. Nice little continental breakfast set outside of your room. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: There is a small fridge in the room, perfect for leftovers!

Booked a room at this hotel built 1864 now fully updated to avoid the crowds at nearby Bodega Bay. Rooms were clean ,beds comfy rooms had refrigerators but no TV or radio reception. Enjoyed being unhooked from those entertainment sources for a day. the nights here were super quiet got a great nights sleep on those comfortable beds. One outstanding element everyone working either the outstanding restaurant Oysters Rockerfeller to the hotel were extremely welcoming. While waiting for room met a couple of men sitting on the porch and they struck up a conversation like a old acquaintance. Later learned one of the men's wife worked at the restaurant. Even the kitchen workers greet the guests ,quite a unique experience super friendly people and being unplugged from our electronics. WiFi provided but reception was poor so I just left it off for our stay still a very pleasant experience had a great meal and room.

Room Tip: WiFi not accessible
