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

Thank you, sscook01, for your great review! I'm so glad that you enjoyed both of your stays! Your private balcony is the perfect spot to bird watch, whale watch, or just listen to the ocean! We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to the coast! Alex Guest Relations Manager More

Room 104 is upstairs, very quiet-no road noise and couldn’t even hear other people in building! Amazing ocean and bluff views, and ocean sound. Very easy access to beach, bluff, bike walk path. The good: comfy bed with lots of nice pillows, clean room and bath, comfy chairs to sit and watch ocean, extra chairs on balcony outside (not comfy... 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

My wife and I have travelled most of Hwy 1, and we wanted to find a great seaside hotel with great views, close proximity to a town, and the ability to leave our window open at night and listen to the waves crash. We found that and more at this hotel. The view from the window was incredible, we were... More

We've stayed many times in Fort Bragg, but have never had a favorite place until now. We stumbled upon Surf and Sand Lodge in a Travelzoo promotion, so decided to try it out. The location is wonderful. The ocean view rooms have an outdoor patio/balcony with plastic adirondack chairs and table. The only drawback is that the bike trail is... More

Great small, quiet hotel with great prices and great views. Just seconds from beach, is associated with two other hotels next door. We were able to go next door and get free continental breakfast. Both properties have excellent customer service.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Amenities were well done, and this place has a fabulous ocean view. One nice thing about this place is they don't seem to use scented laundry soap or fresheners, this is a big plus for my companion, as she is sensitive to perfume scents and we did not notice any in the room....

Been coming here for years and the newly remodeled rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean with comfy robes included in the amenities. It's a smaller property so much quieter as well. Check in was quick and the front desk was helpful answering questions about current activities in the area or restaurants to enjoy. Very relaxing to sit on the deck... More
