We spent 2 nights at this hotel so be close to Glass Beach. We had a nice stay and do not have any complaints about the rooms or staff. It felt moreso like a condo. We really enjoyed a hiking trail along the headlands with the dramatic scenery. You can easily walk down to the beach and see star fish... More

We spent two nights at this hotel, which is nicely situation just on the edge of town, so you are out of the hustle and bustle. It's on the beach, with an incredible path crossing over trestle to lead you to Glass Beach, which we were enamored with. The staff was friendly and helpful. This review would be a five... More

Thank you, Euell, for your great review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Glass Beach is beautiful, and if you go during low tide you can see more beautiful glass pieces!

I enjoyed my stay at SS. Friendly, professional staff, hotel is on the beach side of Hwy 1. Nice trail along the headlands, and beach access. The only problem is the hwy noise. Perhaps the unit I'm in, Dolphin, rm 604, is closer to the road than some of the others. Bring earplugs, and stay upstairs (no elevator) for a... More

Thank you for your great review, RFrancis! I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Like you said, our upstairs rooms are perfect for spotting seals while relaxing on your balcony! With our unique setup of separate units with only 5 rooms in each, it helps eliminate some of the outside noise! We hope to welcome you back soon! Alex... More

The person who owned this property wanted it to be first class and it was. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the ocean and had been remodeled, well decorated and great beds. There was a small balcony with two chairs and table, great for enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset. I did have to ask... More

First, I do want to say that this hotel has quite a bit of potential given its beautiful location along the Pacific Ocean and easy access in Fort Bragg. Additionally, the room was very clean and looked recently remodeled. The beach is just a short walk from the rooms, and there is easy access across a footbridge to the famous... More

The rooms were very clean and the service was great. The beds were very comfortable. Easy walk to the beach, even for the little ones. It was so handy to have a refrigerator and a microwave oven. I would recommend this motel!

We stopped in Fort Bragg for the night on our way to Willamette Valley in Oregon. There really wasn't much to choose from in terms of accommodation in the area so we relied on TripAdvisor for our stay. We must admit that we were happy that we did.
