I've stayed here for about 8 years or so....and favorably reviewed it here a couple of times. I was astonished when I called last week to learn that Mr.Reddy had sold the place. First I spoke with a man, I think the new owner, who was pleasant enough, but had such a thick accent we had a difficult time exchanging... More

I have stayed here before and LOVED it. I booked on-line and noted that I travel with my dog and a specific room I wanted. Upon arrival I hear that those requests are not read until arrival, not stated on the website. The motel is now under new ownership and managers...on arrival I was dealing with Paul. Paul told me...

Forget about the surf-side boutique motels or the high-end view hotels -- for our purposes, this was just great! Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms with everything we needed for our two-night stay. Comfortable beds, nice linens, close to EVERYTHING. They care about PETS with a dog pen with lighting at night, and nice chairs for the humans to sit. More... More

My girlfriends and I take an annual trip and this year chose "The Surf Motel & Gardens" in Fort Bragg. The room was clean, full kitchen, large living area and quiet. The staff offered shuttle service and went out of their way to meet our requests. I loved the gardens surrounding the motel; lovely. Also, it is walking distance to... More

We only stayed for one night but I wish we would have stayed longer. We rented the six person suite. It came with a stocked kitchen and plenty of room to enjoy a meal with family. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was friendly.

just returned from Fort Bragg after spending two very comfortable nights at the Surf Motel. The owner went out of his way to make sure our stay was excellent. He shuttled us not only to and from the train station, but other places we wanted to go. He was even willing to drive us to Mendocino but we ran out... More

Only stayed for one night but am sure I would have felt comfortable for longer. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the water for the shower was hot. The gazebo was a nice touch and the gardens were beautiful. I saw plants I've never seen before! The property was very clean. The staff were very helpful and... More

Loved our stay at the Surf Motel & Garden. We really appreciated the free shuttle service to and from the Skunk Train and downtown restaurants. The owners were helpful and funny. The room we booked had a kitchen and sitting area which was perfect for the four of us to visit, and the grounds were covered with beautiful flowers, several... More

We have stayed here at the Surf Motel & Gardens for multiple years now. The staff are friendly and helpful. The prices are good. Your right on the highway but you really don't hear much roadway noise. They are dog friendly and have an area to BBQ. The Harvest Market is next door so you can walk and get your... More
