Wonderful...quite and peaceful. Beautiful private beach yards away. Gorgeous view. Rooms are very clean. Beds could be more comfy. But all in all we loved it and plan on staying again. Nice walks and private, beautiful beach.

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. The rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable. All the necessary bathroom... More

Thank you for your great review, hotelfanatic65! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have been experiencing some beautiful weather on the coast, so leaving your door open to catch the ocean breeze is the perfect way to cool off! We hope to welcome you you back on your next road trip! Alex Guest Relations Manager More

While touring the north coast of CA with my 2 brothers, I stayed at this conveniently located lodge in Fort Bragg. Although it seemed a bit pricey for the area, the rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. If not new, the fixtures were well maintained. The bathroom in my unit was huge with a tiled walk-in shower. I can... More

Thank you for your review, 209SIMSfamily. I'm sorry that you weren't able to relax due to the noise. Our location just steps from the beach makes us a hot spot for families during the summertime. I suggest booking an upstairs room to get a better nights sleep. The paved walking trail not only takes you to the nearby beach, it... More

We've never been to Fort Bragg before so we relied heavily on Trip Advisor reviews when deciding to stay here. Boy am I glad we did. The location cannot be beat! We booked an ocean view King room on the first floor. The view was amazing. I enjoyed every moment I spent lounging on the patio and looking at the... More

This small, newly renovated motel was such a find. The large room had a comfortable king bed, small table and two chairs, refrigerator, microwave, but the big plus was the porch right outside. It had 2 comfy chairs and overlooked the headlands, beach and ocean. Only the occasional walker or bicyclist on the path in front of our porch came... More

We had no idea what to anticipate when we book the Surf and Sand. We just wanted a quiet weekend getaway. We ended up being blown away. And it all came down to the room. We were on the ground floor, with our door/window facing the dunes and the ocean in the distance. As we love traveling with our dog,... More

Spent the 4th of July at the Surf and Sand Lodge. The room was great, with amazing ocean views! Staff was incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make sure our every ask was accommodated. The hotel is located just outside of downtown Fort Bragg, which was perfect for a morning walk to breakfast. Could not have asked... More

Stumbled across this place and were SO happy we did. Very friendly staff, Fabulous bed and linens, very quiet, nice location on the ocean front with a nice view and a little deck to sit out on. The bathroom set up was a little strange as the sink was in the bedroom area. Great place to stay overall
