Walking up to the front doors of the lobby, you can already see the beautiful view of the ocean waves crashing out back. The front desk staff was friendly. The rooms are nicely appointed with a small table and two chairs, a wet bar area, and two queen beds. The bathroom is very small, but that wasn't a concern for... More

Room spacious, clean and very comfortable. Had room with spa and fireplace looking out to a spectacular ocean view. For those who travel with their dog they have rooms with individual dog runs and a larger enclosed dog area. An enclosed play area for the kids. Ordered the romance package for only $25.00, a dozen red roses and chocolate. Staff... More

Located next to the coastal walkway. View is over the Pacific. A short way from downtown Fort Bragg. The rooms are well appointed, some have a spa tub and fireplace. Ours had two queen beds and was downstairs so had direct access to the coastal walkway. The rooms are quiet and clean with an outdoor deck. We like our beds... More

I really enjoy my stays at the Beachcomber! Great ocean views and clean comfy rooms. I like the option of bicycle rentals, as well as the breakfast and coffee! I try to make it out there at least a couple times a year! Ready to go again soon.

Let's be clear, this is a Motel, a family motel. Having said that, I strongly recommend it; it is clean, very important, bathroom and beds are clean; the view is incredible, all rooms seems to have a deck so you can spend some time contemplating the ocean with pizza and beer before going to bed. The breakfast, included, is very... More

Spent a couple nights over New Years here, and enjoyed our stay. We feel it is overpriced for the size of the room, especially postage stamp sized bathroom (hence one star missing), but the view is great (upstairs is best, first floor is a bit below the height of the sidewalk on the ocean side). Could hear neighbors some, but... More
