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

Thank you for your great review, Lorax1971! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! The Coastal Trail in front of the hotel also goes north to MacKerricher State Park, which has a boardwalk with beautiful lookout points. We look forward to your next visit to the coast!

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

My husband and I were driving along the coast of cali from Oregon and stayed here for one night. Cute hotel with nice beach and clean room. We were only there for one night and checked out the beach in the morning and did go for a short night walk to stretch our legs. Was a pleasant and quiet evening.... More

Not only was the room upgraded and incredibly clean, but the bed was unbelievably comfortable. Nice amenities in room as well. Deck with overlook to ocean was steps away from great 10-mile path along coast. Couldn't have been better.

Beautiful room with great amenities. The view was fantastic of the ocean. Overall it was good except for the last night and the very noisy upstairs neighbors. Would stay here again if we are up this way.

We stayed one night during our Pacific Coast Highway road trip. It was a wonderful respite from our harrowing but beautiful US 1 journey from Lake Crescent to Fort Bragg. The Jacuzzi bath was a nice treat as were the sounds of the Ocean waves lulling us to sleep. Good view from the 2nd floor. Great check in service and... More
