The toilet was ridiculously small, hard for a man to use, but not the worst I've encountered. I don't know what idiot made the decision to install these tiny toilets, but the few dollars they may have saved will be lost due to lost future business. This was the only problem serious enough to make me consider staying elsewhere in... More

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. Our dedicated housekeeping staff does a great job! Glad you found your room VERY CLEAN. Thank you for recognizing their efforts.

This hotel has some of the nicest staff I have talked to when checking in to a hotel! The reason I am only giving this hotel an "Average" rating is because there are a few improvements that could be made. 1.) The pool! It was pretty cold outside (which is normal for Fort Bragg, we go often) and I was... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of the Seabird. We keep the pool at about 83 degrees. Over the years we have found that to be the best temperature balance for the serious swimmer and the leisure play/splash type swimmer. The hot tub is kept at about 100 degrees. Sorry about the spider--it happens on occasion. We... More

Made reservations after seeing this hotel on line. Greeted by a friendly staff upon arrival. Room was very outdated. The linens were very worn and thin. The towels provided for the pool and jaccuzzi were so thin you could see thru them. No airconditioning in the rooms, had to leave the front window open facing the walkway open so you... More

Thank you for posting a review of the Seabird. Glad you received a warm greeting by one of our staff members. Sorry we did not meet your expectations in other areas. There are very few days here on the Mendocino Coast that are warm enough to need air conditioning. You were here on one of those glorious Indian Summer days.... More

This was our first visit to the area and we were traveling with our dog. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff that included a furry-friend.

I think it was quite expensive for what it offered... US$150 for nothing special, a simple motel.... but we had to sleep in this hotel because there was nothing else available in town. The breakfast was ridiculous... watery coffe and some cheap small muffin that you had to take to your room because there was no breakfast room...

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. Rates vary by season--this is the busiest time of year on the Mendocino Coast so the rates are higher, during the off season the scenery is still spectacular and the rates are less!

We stopped her for the night on our trip down the coast. It is very outdated but seemed to be clean. Our problem was more with the rooms having extremely thin walls or adjoining doors where all sound comes through. On one side of us, the person had the tv so loud we could hear the entire show.

Good place to stay for a cheap and clean night. Nice people at the desk also. Only issue is the room was super stuffy and hot. It was only 70 degrees outside, but the room was very warm all night. They provided a small fan in the room but no A/C. Tough to sleep.

Thanks for your review of the Seabird. We appreciate our guests taking the time to post reviews. It has been unusually warm here this past week --70 to 72 degrees or so.and west facing rooms do get warm. Using the fan and having the window open for awhile most often does the trick.

The Seabird Lodge is a decent budget accommodation near downtown. It is right on the highway, but you can see the ocean across the road. There is significant road noise, but it does quiet down a lot after dark. The continental breakfast has coffee, juice, many muffins and yogurt. The staff is very fririendly. The hotel has a coin operated... More

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. The upstairs west facing rooms have distant ocean views. Request one of these when you book at 800 345 0022. The Seabird sits back off Main Street a half block. We offer a variety of fresh baked muffins each morning. A few of the favorite varieties are Blueberry, Blueberry/Lemon, Bran/Raisin/Zucchini, Chocolate/Chocolate Chip,... More
