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.

Stayed a night and wish we could have stayed longer. The view of the coast and the cozy fireplace made it very relaxing. The bed was comfortable, WiFi worked, the breakfast in the morning wasn't just some bagels, they had eggs, waffles, sausage, yogurt, oatmeal, toast, fruit and a few other goodies. The spa tub in front of the fireplace... More

Our son was getting married in Fort Bragg. He and his bride reserved a group of rooms for those of us traveling across the country to attend the happy occasion.

We gave this stay as a honeymoon gift. They said the check in was fast, the King Suite was a nice surprise with a jaccuzi tub, a fireplace and a balcony to watch the boats come in was great.
