This is a classed-up roadside motel. Clean, safe, and reasonably well located north of the main drag of restaurants etc. in Fort Bragg. We were pleased and would stay again if we were to return to Fort Bragg.

Nice, clean room by the ocean. Our room was on the first floor a few steps from the sand. The room was very clean. The rooms appear to have been recently renovated. The room size was relatively large with a place for a table and chairs. There was also a refrigerator and microwave. There is a coffee pot and coffee... More

The front desk is great and have great recommendations for meals etc.. Room was excellent, comfortable and spotless. Ocean view is great. Walk out of your room to the surf. Super quiet so don't let the road out front influence you.....you will never know it is there.

The Surf and Sand is our favorite place to stay in Fort Bragg. The new owners have taken great care into renovating the hotel with soothing colors, crown moulding, large refrigerators, microwave and comfy beds. Staff is always friendly and helpful, the views are splendid and the cozy buildings make it feel like home. We've had to stay at other... More

This would be a good hotel anywhere. The location couldn't be better. From our upstairs room we had a magnificent view and immediate access to the beach. The room was everything we needed, including a larger-than-usual fridge and a hot tub. Great staff made it even better. They provided an extra bed in 5 minutes. This place gets extra nights... More

We arrived very late, 10.30pm and the host was very friendly and understanding. He arranged for us to check in at the hotel next door and our keys/map were ready and waiting for us. The room was great, very clean, nice and quiet and we didn't realize until we woke up but a great location. Our door opened up right... 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

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
