We were in the top floor and it was a great view! It was very peaceful and we were both pleased with the room. The bay window and jacuzzi with fireplace right next to it were the perfect touch for our romantic getaway! The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful as well!

We had a gorgeous view of the harbor and ocean from our balcony. The hotel is new, the room large and comfortable, the king bed excellent, and spa robes hung in the closet. In addition, the service was professional and friendly. The breakfast was good enough. We would recommend this hotel highly to our friends.

We book a King Spa suite, with an ocean-view hot tub. The room was every bit as nice as it looked on the website and possibly even better. The room was very large and extremely clean, nicely decorated, and well-maintained. We loved sitting on the private balcony looking out at the ocean while having our morning coffee. While many hotels... More

First time staying here. We were pleasantly surprised. Room was tastefully decorated, fireplace, in room jacuzzi, outdoor balcony, comfortable bed. GREAT views of the bay area and boats coming and going. The only bad thing I can say about this hotel is that it had a big hole in the ground under the balcony area behind the hotel that looked...

Nice clean hotel that was a great get away with my significant other. My only disappointment was the big hole that you see when you look out your window to see the ocean. The view was nice once you looked past the eyesore of a hole. That is my only negative.

Thank you so much for giving us feedback about your stay. The property that is in front of our hotel is owned by the city of Fort Bragg. They use that area every couple of years to dredge the harbor. Eventually the area grows over with coastal plants thus creating a more pleasant view. I hope you will stay with... More

Arriving I was super excited to be celebrating my birthday at a destination I have always wanted to visit. The views from our room were amazing. The bed was very comfortable and the sound of the foghorn easily drowned out by a simple fan in our room. The negatives... pillows were sour smelling with what looked like mustard on our... More

Stumbled on this beautiful motel, and were so glad. Had the top floor suite and the view was incredible. No A/C but honestly didn't need it even though it was early July and the West Coast was suffering a heat wave.

We had room 114 with a king size bed and jacuzzi tub. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, but there was also a couple of duds. The room was large, nice and clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was the standard scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit and juices and was pretty good. The exterior of the buildings... More

This is a wonderful hotel with very large rooms (or at least our room was large). The furniture is great and something I may put into my own home. Our room overlooked the ocean at the opening to the harbor. The bed was very comfortable and our every wish was provided in this room. The only drawback is that with... More

When you drive by, you don't think much of this place...but then you realize the real estate it's on and then you think twice. From the parking lot the view are beautiful...and then you go to your room, where once the door is opened you see a fan-freaking-tastic view of the cliffs and the shore. It's gorgeous in ways that...
