I have read the wonderful reviews and expected a wonderful time. I have to admit the views were great but beyond that point I was not to satisfied with the piss poor customer service. The staff was very stand offish. We asked for xtra towels and it seemed like a big deal. To me it was like being in any... More

We spent 2 nights at the Surf and Sand Lodge while making our way down the coast. At first, we thought we might have made a mistake, but we were wrong. This is in a great location just on the edge of town. The Surf and Sand is right on the 1, but once you enter your building, it is... More

Thank you so much travelbug37220 for your great review! I’m so glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us. As you mentioned, we are in a great location - close enough to town to be easily accessible but far enough that it is quiet and peaceful. And, of course, we are right on the beautiful Pacific ocean.... More

You absolute can't beat the location. Located on the old lumber hauling road and yards from the ocean, you can see and smell the ocean from your room. Rooms are comfortably furnished, including both a microwave and refrigerator, flat screen TV and beds with luxurious sheets. Our room had a nice deck with chairs where you could sit and enjoy...

As noted by others, the state park dunes and associated beach are directly out your back door. This place could be an absolute hovel and still be worth it based on this location. However, it is tidy, clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. The biggest complaint that I had was that the rooms are designed only with one... More

Thank you xrayd0ct0r for your fantastic review! We love to hear that our guests have had a 5/5 quality stay! I’m sorry to hear about the heat in your room, but, as you observed, in our climate A/C is uncommon. We have had some unusual heat recently, but typically Fort Bragg is kept nicely cool by the ocean breezes. But... More

This hotel is on the north end of town. It is the newest property. The room was on the ocean, and I mean ON! I have never stayed at a hotel this close to the actual waves. Needless to say the water was loud so be prepared. We had a "noise fan" with us, so no problem. People make fires... More

Thank you Janet G for your fantastic review! As you said, we are indeed right on the ocean but still close enough to town to be easily accessible. We are also pet-friendly but as you mentioned, those rooms are kept apart from the non-pet rooms for our guests who may have allergies. We look forward to welcoming you back to... More

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.

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
