We booked a room when we were in Eureka (which was a good thing--we may not have gotten one otherwise). I had searched the area on my phone, then I called and physically did the booking with a very helpful, informative lady. We got there quite late (I called to update our arrival time as we under-anticipated the drive from... More

Our two nights at the Seabird was a pleasant experience. New carpet, new mattress, pet friendly, homemade muffins, ocean view private balcony, close in and friendly staff. (Takes photo of your pet). That all adds up to above average in my book! First time we took our dog on vacation with us. It was such a relief to be met... More

Nice big room for me and my two dogs. Refrigerator and microwave were a nice plus. Not far from the coast and an off leash beach. Very people and dog friendly. The adjacent cafe offers a 10% discount to motel residents. I would stay here again even without the dogs.

We just got back from a beautiful long weekend in Ft. Bragg/Mendo. Our stay at the Seabird was very nice. We had excellent sleep because of the NEW mattresses. They need to teach the maids how to change sheets though, it kept coming off at the top corner, LOL. The desk help was very informative and helpful. A little traffic... More

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. Glad that you had a restful night's sleep on one of our new Serta pillow top mattresses! Many other new things are on their way. When visiting our beautiful part of the world remember the Seabird is the place to stay! More

Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. The breakfast included five types of muffins homemade by the owner, Boyd's coffee and cocoa, yogurts and a selection of teas. This is a friendly motel in Fort Bragg, within striking distance of Mendocino. Fort Bragg's downtown is recovering with the advent of multiple brew pubs and boutiques.

Thanks for the review of the Seabird. Glad that you like the muffins. I like to make them for our guests. Always at least three varieties---lemon poppy seed. blueberry, chocolate/chocolate chip, raspberry/white chocolate, bran/zucchini, orange cranberry, pumpkin and others. Hope to see you again soon.

Basic Motel. No coffee or breakfast. Clean but well worn. Nice people in the office. Good sized room. Decent value for the money. Lady in the office said they were in process of remodeling. Carpet was next to be replaced.

Thanks for the review of the Seabird. We have both coffee in the room and coffee in the lobby from 7-am until 10-pm. Our breakfast features fresh baked muffins-always at least three varieties, yogurt, orange juice, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Our updating to date includes Serta pillow top mattresses, guestroom lighting and interior and exterior paint. Carpet within this... More

5 stars for this type of hotel. Not fancy, but a great value. The room was neat and clean and larger than expected. The owners were very friendly and helpful with directing us to places to eat and visit while in Fort Bragg. The breakfast was just right - homemade muffins, yogurt, coffee, tea and juice. Would stay again.

Thanks for the terrific review of the Seabird. Here it is again --that "VALUE" word! Friendly and helpful- That's us. Glad that you enjoyed the morning muffins. I enjoy making them for our guests.

This is an older, but very well-maintained property. The employees are friendly and absolutely love dogs! We spent 2 nights and it was as quiet as can be. The beds were new and the shower was great! Morning coffee and homemade muffins were certainly a treat. Walking distance to both Safeway and Starbucks a big plus. WiFi spots everywhere! So... More

The room was spacious and basically clean. However, the carpet showed spots, wear and buckled in areas. Furniture was worn and inside dresser drawers were stained. No air conditioning, but a table fan was provided that we placed near the window. The room was just large enough to fit a roll away bed and the 2 standard queen beds. Refrigerator... More

You have an idea of the visit you are about to have when you get told that if you make an online reservation you can't get any discount, AAA, AARP, etc., come on! Those discounts are not deal breakers or could they take that much out of your profit. But this place has the AAA signage as well as all... More

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. We appreciate all reviews--even the unflattering ones. We have areas to work on. Lots of new things here now and coming soon: Serta pillow top mattresses and guest room lighting are in. Drapes, bedding and carpet will be here within the next few weeks. New furniture later in the fall. More
