Love this place, and I have tried quite a few. It is clean, very nice, has frig and microwaves, Internet, etc. The best thing is the ocean view, and the blacktop walk way between the hotel and the ocean. It is parallel to the beach, and goes on for miles and miles and miles in both directions. You can walk,... More

Thank you for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! You are right, the paved coastal trial that runs along the hotel is perfect for just about anything! If you follow it North towards MacKerricher State Park you can even find more secluded beach areas! We hope to welcome you back to the coast soon!... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it! (We actually stayed in 2014, but I couldn't choose that date.) We only stayed one night, but I really wished we had stayed longer. We loved it so much we are looking to comeback and stay longer this year... and bring family, too. I am a clean freak and... More

I've stayed here twice and it has been great both times. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is fabulous! The beach is right outside the room, just a short walk. It is located right along the walking/biking trail, and is an easy walk to Glass Beach.

Perfect location. Walking distance to glass beach. Awesome waves. We'll be back. So glad we picked this location. Rooms are very good and reasonably priced. Well worth the drive from Orange County, CA. Wish we could stay longer. Early morning walks to the beaches are outstanding.

Driving through the south end of Fort Bragg during the day with businesses and lodging near the road, it doesn't seem like a peaceful place to spend the night. But, when you get to the north end of town and the Surf and Sand Lodge, you find a lovely haven, a view of the rugged coast and powerful Pacific. You... More

The staff was really helpful with information and always pleasant. It made the stay very nice. The breakfast was not convenient. You had to walk down to the next hotel to get it. We chose to eat elsewhere.

The hotel is newly remodeled. Pretty clean throughout, linen and towels are clean and smells good. Ocean front view. Price is reasonable. The only incident we had was there was squirrel droppings at one corner of the room. They cleaned it after we reported it. They probably don't clean the corners of the room at all.

I did a weekend trip to this place with my wife and 4 year old. I booked a twin queen bed suite with sea view in the second floor and the view from the room was absolutely stunning. I could see 180 degree view of the sea that's so mesmerizing that I could just stand and watch the pacific ocean... More

The water is actually quite a ways away but you are able to hear the waves, if not very loudly, and see them from the balcony. We had an upstairs king with jacuzzi tub. Nice room, nicely updated and decorated. Very basic breakfast at the property next door, a quick walk down the trail that runs behind the properties. Good... More
