4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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...

I had my fingers crossed that this would be a fantastic place to spend our anniversary weekend, but it fell short. Yes, the views are lovely, but everything else was just ok (or even poor). We booked a superior king room and it was spacious and the fireplace was nice. The receptionist was friendly. Buuut: - Another hotel guest was... More

The staff was friendly, courteous, and so responsive to our inquiries. And I just love the awesome "very clean" room we stayed in - the top floor- as the view of the ocean was breath taking. Open up the balcony door and feel the ocean breeze, hear the sound of the waves especially late in the evenings when it's quiet... More

Excellent view, clean and luxurious rooms. A bit noisy with the slider open at night due to traffic and fog horn. The bed was hard as a rock though. Walking distance to the wharf is nice too. Overall a very nice experience though.

Five stars to the hotel which I checked into on arrival, two to the one from which I checked out the next day. We've stayed in Fort Bragg numerous times but not at the North Cliff which we had seen being built years ago. Our reception equaled those at Ritz-Carltons and Four Seasons properties. The lady could not have been... More

North Cliff Offers Great Views! The hotel seems older with a recent remodel. The rooms are nice and cozy and have their own sitting area with a view and a fire place. Spacious rooms and extensive views make for a nice stay. Customer service was nice and the hotel offers free parking. Free breakfast is included in the stay. Overall,... More

I cannot give enough compliments to this hotel. The location is perfect—close to downtown Fort Bragg and Mendocino. The accommodations offer a simple luxury that echoes the surrounding landscape. The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms are surprisingly spacious with delightful views of the harbor and Pacific Ocean beyond. We enjoyed the cool breezes off the ocean and falling... More
