Quiet, clean comfortable rooms in a charming victorian setting. The staff was attentive and courteous. Not much to do in town but 15 minutes away from shopping & dining. Dining-Bar next door with good food and a General Store & Bakery-Coffee House in walking distance.

We had a great day at the beach followed by a nice dinner next door at the William Tell house - and an excellent quiet night in a great room overlooking the town

When we arrive there was nobody in reception. Front door was closed with a code number. We try to phone but our phones didn't have service. We were lucky because two people arrived at this moment and they let us to come inside. They said the same thing happens to them. So, we didn't see innkeeper at any time. Only a envelope with my name, and the door code inside!!! If you know there are problems with phone signal, it would be so easy send the door code when the reservation is confirmed And ... for $176 they would serve some cookings or muffins with the cofee. Room and hotel are very nice. Beautiful and clean.
I'm so sorry you had problems at the hotel Someone is at the front desk from 4pm which is check in time until 6 or 7 depending how busy we are. if you check in after hours or very early, we do not guarantee that someone will be there, and intact we give each guest a door code immediately after they book, by email if we have one, or by phone if they book by phone there is a binder on the bed in each room and it lets you know that if you do not have verizon, then are welcome to use the phone at the front desk. The complimentary coffee, tea and juice are for guests in the week.

We stayed in the Ivy Room of this lovely, well-kept, 4-room Inn. The room was charming, very clean and comfortable, decor was tasteful, and we were welcomed and checked in with warmth and professionalism. It surpassed our expectations in every way. They have a continental breakfast on weekends, but we were there on a Monday, so cannot comment as to onsite dining, but can't submit this review without checking a box. Highly recommend!

The room was stylishly decorated and very clean. Very comfortable and very quiet except for the cows in the morning. Great country treat.

The rooms were great and it was quiet. There wasn't anyone onsite and our phones didn't have service (ATT) which made it hard to communicate and we needed to a few times. The Inn keeper was really responsive on email but we had to drive a few miles to have service. Have all your needed info printed out- "just in case"!

We took advantage of the January-February off season and had the place all to ourselves. Despite our late arrival after a nice dinner in Petaluma, our host welcomed us warmly and we enjoyed a great night's sleep on one of the most comfortable beds I've experienced. Room and general ambiance of the Inn were elegant but low key and relaxing. Great stop of the way to Point Reyes.

Our 1-2 day trip to Tomales Bay was made better by our stay at the Continental. After a day of birding and eating seafood on Tomales Bay (we love Tomales Bay Oysters, Marshall Store and Hog Island) - we slept well in a comfortable room at the Continental. Everything was real good - clean - period décor - and quiet. I recommend this hotel (there is no restaurant connected to the hotel - so I left the dining question empty - you get coffee in the AM - which was just fine).
