Stayed in the queen room with jacuzzi the first night, but the bed was too stiff even with the pillow top mattress. Also had smokers in room below us, so it was a rough night. I talked to Brandi the next morning and she said we should have called down to the front desk,since there is somebody on call 24... More

Spent the weekend in Fort Bragg for the first time. I couldn't be more happy with my choice of hotels. Excellent location, 5minutes from everything. The room was extremely clean. I had a two queen room. Plenty of room. When I return to Fort Bragg this summer I definitely will be staying here again.

We stayed in the King Fireplace Jacuzzi suite for my boyfriends birthday. It was wonderful. Room was just as we expected, clean, roomy, comfortable bed, nice and good working jacuzzi. The windows opened completely so fresh air was readily available. In the office the staff was very kind, in the mornings they offered a small continental with coffee and danishes,... More

I spent one night right before Christmas in a king room #224 on the second floor in the building across the street from the main building. The room was cozy and clean, and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was spotless. I had a wonderful little view of the sunset over the ocean. The receptionist was very friendly and helped... More

Perfect location to visit Fort Bragg and the surrounding area at a great price. The double-queen bed room was comfortable for two and apparently larger than the single king bed rooms. The desk staff were quite friendly and helpful. A great 1/2 mile walk down the street and you're at Pomo Bluffs: a great view of the sea and coastline... More

Perfect one night stay while traveling south ! The hotel was very clean, very comfortable and staff friendly! I would recommend this hotel/Inn to all my friends. The hotel is on the outskirts of town with an excellent restaurant nearby! The beach is only a 10 minuet walk away.

When we arrived we were upgraded due to our booked room type being unavailable, but I'm not entirely sure what the difference is, maybe the fireplace? In any case the room was too hot and we couldn't get the AC too cool it down effectively so had to open the window to the walkway which was noisy. There's no elevator... More
