Some recent reviews from our guests:

Romeo, November 2018 said Great place to stay. Awesome atmosphere. Friendly people. Wish I could have stayed longer.”

Alexander, June 2018 said “Smiley’s is a very special place – rooms set back in a tropical jungle of lovely plants, felt like a beach cabana. Awesome hammock just outside rooms. Slightly rough around the edges, but in a charming way. Loved the saloon and live music on the premises, and laid back speed of Bolinas. Bartender was the one to handle check-in, and he was super friendly. Very unique experience I’d recommend to anyone.”

Peter, May 2018 said “The rooms are decorated thoughtfully and with a design flair, not reflective of the somewhat spartan, simple exterior. Our Room #6 was cute, clean, and comfortable. The setting of Smiley’s in the heart of town makes this the ideal “social anthropologist’s” site if you want to get the true Bolinas gestalt. It is a night we won’t forget! A very minor point for guests to know is that if you’re sensitive to noise loud music, there is late night noise from the bar.”
