The Bodega Bay Inn is a hotel at the California, Coast in Scarab Hill. The building was built by an eccentric woman who fell in love with an Egyptian mystic who designed the hotel as a nexus of the spiritual energy. The hotel was owned by Megan Gallagher's family until they died and it was passed onto her.

The hotel is where a number of events happen in the Puppet Master franchise. The first scene of the first film opens at the inn, showing the great Puppet Master Andre Toulon caring for his animated puppets. It is later revealed he is hiding there from the Nazis, who eventually find him, though not before he can kill himself to keep the secret of life from them.
