When you are offering the service with the price that you are asking then maintain that. Because I do not believe that line, expect what you pay. I paid before than looking at your room and the service. We stayed in this 'LODGE' for two nights for last week end. Before you are offering a room check that if things... More

We were late getting into Fort Bragg and had no reservations. This place was in the middle of town so we thought it might be good to be able to walk where ever we wanted to. It is the most God-awful place we have ever parked our Harley and spent the night. If we hadn't been so tired we would... More

We stayed here for the night on the way to San Francisco. It was adequate for our needs, the rooms aren't amazing but you have a microwave, fridge, TV with HBO, continental breakfast is included. The bathrooms are small but it works. Its cheap but for a reason you get what your paying for.

This motel was the only one with a vacancy in Fort Bragg. That should have tipped us off. The desk clerk could not understand English very well when we asked for a restaurant suggestion. The bathroom was so small, the shower door conflicted with the commode. The shower was moldy. There was no room to move around the bed because... More

We had an unexpected stay in Fort Bragg when our starter went out in our car. So within walking distance (the only place with a vacancy) we checked into the Ebb Tide Motel. We walked into the room, and there was an odd smell, the room was full of mold and we even found a pair of reading glasses that... More

Had to grab a motel for a night. Was greeted to the overpowering smell of curry and other odours at the desk. Room towels tiny, shower curtain had mold. The internet was off more than it was on. Sheets seemed too small for the bed and came off midway thru the night. Their continental b-fast contained foods that were unrecognizable... More
