Stayed here in mid January for my wife's birthday and lucked out with great weather. We had the cheapest room available and you wouldn't have known it - it was roomy, well designed, and had a front row view to the ocean. The outside of the lodge is kind of dated but inside our room was fantastic. The restaurant was...

The hotel was great, other than having affordable dining options and the dated interior. When you arrive in your room, there is a note that says keep it down because our walls don't have insulation. I wasn't planning on partying like a rock star, but the hotel definitely needs an update to refresh the insulation, carpet, paint, and bed. I...

We have stayed at Sea Ranch Lodge many times and always enjoy it. The setting is spectacular. The food delicious and the walk along the cliffs great. We love all the architecture and planning that went into the development. It is working with the natural landscape in the best possible way.

We were greeted awesomely and the views are amazing!!! Perfect for an exhausted working couple to de-stress. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with... when we booked, it said no children. Unfortunately, our dinner was surrounded by kids! I love kids, butnot when we specifically were trying to get away.

The Sea Ranch Lodge isn't what it used to be. The landmark hardware is in urgent need of some TLC and investment. Off course....the location of the lodge is awesome and makes somewhat up for the decline...hard to beat these views. Outside the need for a freshen up of the building, I also see a decline in service, hospitality and...

The Sea Ranch Lodge sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Sonoma County just south of Mendocino County. The view is incomparable! The Sea Ranch is criss-crossed with miles of hiking trails over its ten miles. Bring your boots, jeans, jacket, hat, and sunblock. Oh, maybe a pair of slacks for dinner, but all is casual there.

Friends had recommended Sea Ranch to us, so we wanted to check it out. First of all, it's a breathtakingly beautiful area, both in terms of the setting and the architecture of the Sea Ranch houses. Sea ranch is totally non-commercial, but the little town of Gualala just to the north has all the services you might need. The Sea...

Sea Ranch Lodge is a great property, connected to miles of walking trails on a gorgeous strip of the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful bluffs and amazing views. We loved our room with its vintage style gas fireplace and corner window that looked out on the ocean. The one caveat is that it is a tad pricey for what you get. There's...

“Remember that this lodge was built in the 60's, so soundproofing and insulation is minimal compared to newer structures.”
