We enjoyed a great 3 day trip and stay at "The Cottages". We were greeted by Paul and given plenty of info to make our stay in Fort Bragg interesting. Our cottage was very comfortable, clean and well stocked for our stay. Paul even brought us a basket of comfort items for our Little Lulu. Great value too.

I took my kids to the coast to celebrate my daughters birthday. When looking for a place to stay, most places were "romantic getaways." Shoreline Cottages was amazing for my family. We loved it. We roasted marshmallows for s'mores by the fire pit which was already lit for us. Paul is very helpful. I watched him turn on the lights... More

We had a great time coming to Ft. Bragg for Abalone season. Shoreline Cottages was exactly what we needed: a place to sleep, clean and prep abs and fish, and cook. The full kitchen and access to BBQs was perfect and hanging out at the fire pit area was just what the Dr. ordered after a long day. Though small,... More

Hey guys thank you for the great review. We really enjoyed having your group here at the motel. It was nice chatting with your group out by the fire pit.

Just had another great stay at shoreline cottages. We have been coming to Fort Bragg for years and have stayed in many motels but Shoreline has become our favorite. We love the cute little cottages, it dose not feel like your staying at a motel but more in a friends guest bed room. There is nothing fancy about the rooms... More

Thank you for your great review. You pretty much summed up our property and our goals as a property in your title (cute, comfortable, and welcoming).

I honestly can't understand how this place is ranked #1 in Fort Bragg, I can only assume it has to do with the fact this place is "pet friendly" and those traveling with pets can bring a pack of dogs to stay, in any room.

Well I am still shaking my head at your review. We are number one for many reasons that you obviously missed or did not choose to state in your review.
