The staff was very friendly and gave me a quiet room in the back of the building. The room was clean, the furniture dated. There was a flat screen TV, good free wifi, fridge, microwave, coffee pot but no iron and ironing board. The bedside lights have both a regular light and a directional light for each bed. There are... More

Balcony and so much room. It has a heated pool and a jacuzzi . We will for sure come back. And you can bring... More

We really enjoyed our stay here as a home base to explore the Mendocino and Fort Bragg areas. The room was basic but very clean and had a nice private balcony space with views of the ocean. We loved the breakfast (which included homemade muffins!) and the friendly attitude of the staff and management. The central location made it easy... More

Stayed here with my son and his children. The staff was very helpful and kind. The room was very large for a hotel room. When traveling with small children, this was handy. The indoor pool was a bit too cold for us to use, but the spa was heaven sent!! After doing the tourist thing all day, the spa was... More

I took my two girls for a 2-night stay here, and we loved it here. Your classic unfussy motel, no worries if you come in sandy from the beach, no weird noises at night, beds were fine, clean, lots of thoughtfulness from the owners. One day we got cold from horseback riding on the beach, and enjoyed the pool and... More

We stay at this motel a couple times a year, because we love the price and the fact they don't charge a high fee to bring our dog. The rooms are clean and the service is helpful. The breakfast is simple, but good. The price is reasonable plus they offer a AAA discount. Our dog is always welcome and he... More

We appreciate your review of the Seabird. Our rates are "friendly" so there is money left over for all the fun things to do on the Coast. Why spend Mendocino prices when you can stay at the Seabird? See you on your next trip to Fort Bragg. More

For a quick getaway to the coast, my wife and I chose this hotel because of their dog-friendly motto. We were not disappointed. Our dogs were welcomed everywhere on the premises, even inside the front lobby. The lobby even had photos of many of their doggy guests. There was a grassy area in the back of the property to walk...

Thanks for your kind review of the Seabird. Pets and their people are welcome here. We find that pets who travel are very good hotel guests --- we have several "pet friendly" rooms. Hope to see you again soon. More

Very nice - large rooms - table and chairs. "Expanded" breakfast is just coffee, muffins and yogurt but o.k. at the price. Quiet in the back rooms but we were here in really off season. Clean but could use a bit of vacuuming in the corners.

Glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Seabird. Why pay Mendocino rates when you can stay at the Seabird and save your money for other activities, souvenirs, meals or great chocolates from Mendocino Chocolate Company!!! Hope to see you again soon. More
