Had a nice stay at the Harbor Lite Lodge. Beautiful water view room. The room was a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and I was actually impressed with the laundry machines (pricy but did a good job!). We will be back!

We were in town and had booked a hotel further away then we had thought. So we did a quick search for a hotel and this one came up on Tripadvisor. We called they quickly informed us that they had a room. We checked in and that time they were ready to put us in a room when the maintenance... More

Stayed there for one night. We were two couples, so they gave us two connecting rooms which was great. Our rooms were not "view" rooms, but we walked to the harbor in the morning and enjoyed it. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfast was standard American hotel breakfast: rock-hard boiled eggs, sugary cereals and pastries, glue-like oatmeal, etc.... More

I accept full responsiblity for this guests treatment at checkout. If they would like to contact me I will adjust their rate. The problem originates from our Booking.com/Priceline rates which are actually higher than our RACK rates, but as of Setpember 1 2014, that problem will no longer exist. After September 1, Booking.com/Priceline will not get you the best rate,... More

My 9-year-old daughter and I stayed here for a long weekend as our base for exploring Fort Bragg and Mendocino. We booked a "center view" room and had a nice view of the harbor. We enjoyed walking down to the beach on the first night. Our room was very comfortable -- big beds, heater worked well, bathroom was adequate, appreciated... More

The lodge is perched on a bluff overlooking a working harbor, with boats coming and going and not noisy for our stay (Not all rooms have a view, so inquire). Our reception was attentive, the rooms clean and well kept (not older or rundown), and the beds were also very comfortable. The the location very convenient for exploring up and... More

We decided last moment to spend my wife's birthday at Mendocino and ended up calling and booking it at ~8:30pm Friday night for a 1-night stay on Sat. Unfortunately, I woke up with extreme upper back pain next day morning, rushed to the chiropractor, and was strictly advised against a ~4hr drive. I called up instantly and canceled the booking...

What this reviewer failed to mention was that the cancellation fee is $25/night and we offered them a $25 credit toward a future stay within one year's time. More

This was a greatplace to stay after my sons football game. Staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The view of the harbor was nice. Room was spacious enough for family of 4. Will book this place again if we head back to the area!

Weary from driving, my husband took the first turn after the bridge into Ft. Bragg. From what we found, we were very glad we did. Even though we didn't have a reservation, the staff at the front desk was friendly, pleasant, prompt, and helpful. Grounds and the room were immaculate. We enjoyed the gas fireplace in our room and especially... More

Rooms sparkling clean and spacious.Complimentary breakfast more than adequate and freshly prepared. Spacious car park and well lit. Exterior inviting and matched by the greeting at the Reception desk. A good place to explore the area. Will most certainly use it again and... More

Wonderful and luxurious. I want to stay here all summer! Some minor things: My fiance didn't like the TV because it didn't get very many channels. This is fine with me though because I don't often watch TV . There are two rooms in the hotel that are for guests who smoke. If you are a non-smoker, you might want... More
