We originally picked Fort Bragg as a convenient stopping point between San Francisco and the northern redwoods. However when we arrived we were blown away by the fantastic location of the Surf and Sand. Your private deck looks out onto the Pacific, with a walking/biking path literally at the doorstep. The path crosses high over a sandy beach area on... More

My husband and I arrived at the Surf and Sand with our kids and instantly knew that we picked the right place to stay. The friendly staff greeted us and answered every question my hubby had about the area and were very helpful in pointing us to the local spots. You cannot beat the location of the S&S, you are...

Not knowing the area, we rolled the dice! So happy we did! Clean, updated, and roomy. Pleasant & helpful during check-in, close to the beach (really close), convenient to all the shops and Skunk Train.

On a recent & unexpected business trip to Berkley,CA, I got a 'spur of the moment' urge & decided to change it up a bit from the usual selected (and boring) south I-5 route. Since I was a day ahead of schedule, the Cali coast seemed a good choice to spend some time before getting back to business mode -... More

Wife had business trip in Westport. Dad and two kids stayed upstairs with two queens. Wife joined us on Saturday. Great view and excellent beach within an easy 3 min walking distance. Nice path for bikes, walking etc.. Walked from Glass Beach to hotel. Very nice. About a 15 min to 20 min walk to the the closest restaurant -... More

Not my usual stop, but glad I did. Pleasant staff informed me that the property was recently updated. Very clean room, nicely appointed, with thick towels. Sat on the small deck and watched the birds fly overhead. Stead stream of people walking on the paved trail, many couples with children. On a bluff above the ocean, you can hear the... More

Loved it here! We had a room facing the ocean on the first floor. Only problem was the room was warm and we had no air. No windows just the sliding glass door to open but couldn't because we had steps that walked right to our door from the beach. Didn't want any strangers in our room.

Thank you Kerri B for your great review! It's wonderful to hear that you loved your stay! I'm sorry that it got warm - usually Fort Bragg stays pleasantly cool since we are right on the coast and the temperature is regulated by the ocean breezes. We hope to see you again soon for your next stay by the sea!... More

Overall, a good experience. It was nice to have a room facing the ocean. Really friendly staff. I would recommend staying in the upper rooms. The ceiling was thin and could hear the neighbors during the night. Room was equipped w/ a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Good for a weekend trip.

We had planned on staying one night in Ft. Bragg and continuing on up 1 to Eureka, but fell in love with Ft. Bragg and stayed two nights and should have stayed three. The Surf and Sand Lodge has a boutique feel to it. There is no restaurant and no lobby for lounging, etc. You don't need it! The rooms... More
