There are so many amazing little bed and breakfast places throughout Mendocino, Little River, and Albion. The breakfast here is mainly pre-packaged food and the rooms are dumpy relative to what else is available in the area. This place is way overpriced and in a bad location. If you want to be near the ocean do some research in the... More

...especially from the in-room spa. We sent a very special couple for a very special trip in early 2015. The property is lovely, and staff could not have been more attentive. This is all a true bonus in such a natural and ruggedly beautiful location.

I have just returned from a three day getaway to Fort Bragg. We chose the North Cliff Hotel mainly because every room had a view, it was pet friendly and I always wanted to stay there. I gave it two stars because there were some serious issues we had, once we arrived. Pros: When we walked into the room I... More

We have been coming here for several years and it is great to see the work being done on the exterior and the renovation done in the rooms. The new furnishings are very nice and comfortable--add value to the rooms. We enjoy the views, the fog horn and , at times, the sea lions. We have NOT found the bridge... More

My mother always taught me that if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. Here's the nice part: the staff is friendly and rooms are spacious and fully equipped. Here's the not so nice part: this is not a resort property nor is it a romantic get away. The location is terrible--next to a bridge (almost underneath... More

It always cracks me up to read the bad reviews on TripAdvisor. Especially when they're for a place like the North Cliff Hotel, which is so resonably priced, so clean and so very comfortable! My teenaged daughter and I drove up to Ft. Bragg from SF for a mother/daughter weekend over the MLK break. I had emailed ahead of time,... More

I wanted to take my husband to my favorite vacation spot, Fort Bragg, and I knew we had to stay at the North Cliff Hotel. I saw the hotel being built while on one of my past trips. What can I say--the tub, the fireplace, the view, the waffles...it was all perfect. But wow, the bedding! I would like to... More

My wife and I have stayed at this property for the last 8 years between Christmas and New Years. Over the years we have noticed a slow decline in furnishing. What a welcome surprise this year to find the redos to the rooms have been completed with new furniture, beds, TVs and carpeting. There is room for additional changes but... More

We spent two days at the hotel and were celebrating our anniversary. A surprise bottle of wine greeted us along with a card congratulating us on our anniversary. The microwave and refrigerator were convenient and helped keep our wine cold and enabled us to warm up our left-over pizza. The king-size bed was comfy and the jacuzzi was very relaxing,... More

We stayed recently during the third week of December for two nights at this hotel. Before I got here I did have a fair amount of expectation after reading all the 4 and 5 star reviews but was quite disappointed with our stay.
