Very happy with Surf & Sand Lodge. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The rooms are attractive. We had an upstairs ocean view room! The bicycle/foot path is a few steps from your room. You can "walk to your hearts content", bird watch and explore. Beachcomber, the sister hotel next door rents bikes. They look like clunkers but worked... More

The lodge was a wonderful place to stay as it is located directly on a walking/biking path that gives you an overall view of both the town and ocean. Cannot beat value. Rooms very comfortable and clean.

Peaceful spot away from home, fantastic view from room, especially fine sitting on the porch waiting for sunset. Paved walking path in front of the Lodge, level easy way to get in a little exercise prior to the next meal!!

Really enjoyed our stay, very clean and friendly staff, only thing that needs to upgraded would be the dining facility, too small for the amount of people that stay there. Looking forward to our next trip.

The rooms are basic but clean. No major amenities. At the north end of Fort Bragg thus a short drive to restaurants and Skunk Train depot. The room is quiet though the ocean is near. Taking a walk to the ocean is a must. A lot depends on the weather. It can be cold.

We made our second stay and was once again awed by our room and stay. We stayed both downstairs and upstairs and enjoyed both. Private, large deck right over the ocean, fabulous beds, and all amenities nicely appointed. Guest services always very helpful and prompt. We've stayed in Mendocino at more expensive spots but will continue to come to Surf... More

Surf and Sand lodge is in an amazing location right next to the Pacific and the views from the rooms are incredible. Room was comfortable and great value. Only complaint was that wifi was very poor and needed upgrading and coffee was poor. Overall a great place in an amazing location
