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.

We were staying in a beautiful room, played pool and had an excellent breakfast! A bit pricy, but it is very much worth it!!! We were with four persons in a room, which was excellent, more then enough space! The hotel is a place full of memories. Cozy and a nice experience. I hope to go back here once again!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Grey Whale for 3 nights. We returned after having stayed here 20 years ago and remembering it fondly. When we arrived we noticed that the front of the Inn looked very different with an out-of-control, overgrown and rambling garden. Once inside, we saw no one, so had to ring the innkeeper who... More

My mother and I stayed at the Grey Whale in early August on a trip from San Francisco to Eureka. It is a charming Inn with very quirky and interesting art decorating the hallways. The owner was extremely friendly, expecially when we arrived late on the first night of our stay. We had the Sunset room which had a great... More

Naturally, I would give this hotel a 4-star review. The person behind the check-in counter was friendly, the breakfast was good, and the rooms were clean and spacious. Now, the reason why I’m giving this hotel a three star review doesn’t have to do with the quality of the inn. It has to do with my experience there, as well... More

My husband and I stayed at Grey Whale Inn on our honeymoon. We were taking a tour of the west coast and Fort Bragg was a stop on our way. Upon arrival we felt immediately welcomed by the cozy vibe of the hotel and our room was clean and adorable. We enjoyed our evening out for dinner in Fort Bragg... More
