First off I want to say our last stay here was not too good. After we returned home we received a call from the hotel manager who explained why we had problems we did and invited us to come back and give them another try. We were not let down. Tip - ask for upstairs room. Unless you are there... More

We try to stay here every three years to recharge our bodies with the ocean sounds and views and we are never disappointed. Clean and quiet rooms, except for the sounds of the ocean, simple breakfast included and close to all Fort Bragg attractions.

Thank you so much for your nice review, robertamac9! I am very happy that you enjoyed the views and walking trail. The path directly to the beach is a bit steep but there is a longer alternative route which is easier to navigate. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Fort Bragg!

The location of this motel is exactly what you would hope. You look out of your window to a stunning view of the beach and sea. We booked a three queen suite for a family of five, which worked well and had a good layout. Check-in was welcoming and easy, as was check-out. The room was comfortable and the views... More

Thank you so much, Frances V, for your great review! I am so glad that we were exactly what you hoped for! The grills you mentioned are on a ground level patio called the Mate's Deck. There is also a Captain's Deck on the second floor at the south end of the motel with numerous grills as well. Both of... More

My husband and I booked the king jacuzzi room, and were given a room directly above the lobby/breakfast area. When we entered our room it was very stuffy and had a strange odor so we opened up the sliding door and left it open all night, hoping to air out the room. The room was nice, and the view was...

Thank you MeriNan81 for giving us a review! I’m so glad that you liked our location, although I’m sorry about your room not being cleaned on time. In the summer we do get quite busy, but you are right that 6:00pm is too late and I apologize for that. I’m sorry that you feel that the room was not very... More

We found this hotel after deciding we could not go any further down the coast highway due to a long day down the coast from Brookings, OR! Our original destination was Petaluma to stay with my cousin. After deciding we couldn't make it, I started looking at the map, not being familiar with the area at all, to me Ft.... More

A wonderful location to get away and sit by the ocean. Watch the gorgeous sunsets. I loved that the ocean is right out your door. Immaculate room and friendly people. This is privately owned and definitely not a chain. We'll be back; definitely a repeat location for us...

As a non-chain hotel, the place is a winner from the get go, but the location simply puts it over the top. The ocean views and beach access right outside of your hotel door make for the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy the area. The rooms were very clean and the staff friendly. The spa treatment was very nice... More

We come every year, this time we stayed for a week. This time I rented a bike and rode it down the haul road. Helmet included, 8 bucks an hour, max 35.

We were making our way up the Pacific Coast and Fort Bragg suited us perfectly as a one night stop on our way into Oregon. The hotel sits nicely on the coast as you leave Fort Bragg heading north. It is a simple set up - large comfortable rooms looking out onto the ocean with a small balcony. The check... More
