We had stayed here on our honeymoon, so booked it for our 25th anniversary without checking reviews. This place used to be great. It is is very run down now. The outside needs paint, the inside needs a good cleaning and lots of repairs are needed. Don't believe the good reviews, they have got to be fakes! There was no... More

We have stayed at the Grey Whale Inn twice now and both times enjoyed it very much. The sunset room has an awesome view and the place just has a neat old Fort Bragg feel to it. Walking to the beach is really close and it is close enough to just walk main street. The owner/operator is super nice to... More

This was one of the coolest places I've ever stayed! Its an awesome old building! Each room was large, clean and uniquely different. We were passing through for the night, saw it and decided to check it out. We were lucky they had availability. Mike was awesome and welcoming and so was Sweet Pea the cat. Mike is also an... More

What a great time we had at Grey Whale Inn. The food was super! The Inn was a charming experience. Your 99 year old building is a true treasure to the Fort Bragg area. Mike has done a great job making everyone feel comfortable, however the best job is done by Sweet-pea. This kitty walks the halls and rooms making... More

I stayed for two weeks or so a few years back. It is a wonderful, creative and quirky place. Full of love and not the least bit haunted as far as I could tell. I stayed in several different rooms and always woke up happy. I miss The Gray Whale Inn!

We really enjoyed this B & B, because it was so open and non-assuming. I loved the history of it being a hospital in the past (and I am a nurse) and seeing the viewing windows. The owner was a bit quirky but let us look around and made us fabulous breakfasts each day. I liked that this was not... More

Owner (who checked us in) was rude from the start and smelled of alcohol. We were promised a certain room and given another. Breakfast was scheduled for 9 AM and it never happened. We were promised a credit for the breakfast and never received one. The hotel was vacant except for one other guest. We were allowed free access to... More

Guy on check in was quite friendly and polite, but the place itself is tired, tired, tired! We spent a night here and the room was ok, but was in need of some TLC. The 14" CRT tv was tiny with poor reception and the window frames needed a lick of paint. The cat was spooky, meouwing at our door... More

We loved this place. I loved the history of it being a hospital before it was a B & B. The owner was very friendly, open and made wonderful breakfasts for us. We enjoyed the Skunk Train and the natural beauty and charm of the area. It wasn't cluttered with tourists traps in Ft Bragg like so many other areas.
