“Shoreline for a group!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was the third time I have stayed at Shoreline. As always the accommodations were clean and comfortable. This visit I was with a fairly large group and all were accommodated comfortably. Kim, the manager was helpful in many ways and her coconut cookies sprinkled with hearts were to die for. MariaLuisa, one of the housekeepers spoiled me rotten!

We have stayed at Shoreline before. We enjoy it here for many reasons. 1 we love taking our dogs and they love dogs. A lot of room for them. Dog beds, treats and bowls are given for no extra charge. The staff is so helpful and the cottages as small and cute. I like having a kitchen ( even though its a little small) but I get to save money by cooking. I will stay at Shoreline every time I come to the coast.

I always stay at Shoreline when I visit Fort Bragg. The cottages are cozy, quiet and clean. We had a large group of friends and they accommodated all of you needs. We enjoyed the firepit and the hot tub. Can't wait to come back!

This was a last minute trip to the coast to enjoy some rare January sunshine. The Shoreline Cottages had very good reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to give them a try. We had the Dolphin room with an electric fireplace and a kitchenette. The first thing we noticed is how clean the room and kitchen were. The queen bed was very comfortable. The room, kitchenette and bath were not large but were big enough not to feel cramped. Good working WiFi was an extra we didn't expect. The only "negative" is that the place is a bit hard to see when your driving down the highway - a bigger sign might help! At $81 per night in January this hotel was a great bargain. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Even though our front cottage was fairly close to the highway, we didn't notice much road noise...

I just stayed here this past weekend and could not have enjoyed myself more. Very reasonable winter rate, clean, comfy rooms with full kitchen. Super dog-friendly and a informative, accommodating staff. Highly recommended!

This is a great place -- clean and well-maintained.

I just want to make a comment about the photos. One photo in particular makes it look you might sit out in the front of the cottage, where there are chairs and a small table, and look out at some view. However, in reality, you will be sitting at the edge of the parking lot. That's not a problem, unless you were planning on spending a lot of time there.

Other than that, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 7 is further from the road.

Stayed here for 3 nights in December 2011 for our first trip to Fort Bragg/Mendocino. We stayed in one of their junior suites which included a sitting area, jacuzzi bathtub and a gas fireplace - was quite cozy - snacks were included as well. Reasonable price for what's included. We quite enjoyed it until the last night when the adjacent suite was booked (it had been empty the first 2 nights) Then we discovered that the wall where the bathroom areas are is paper thin - we could hear the people next to us talking while they were in their bathroom - even heard the shower rod moving and heard the kids in the bathtub - yikes! We had a problem getting hot water from the sink too - I think you have to run the tub water first or something - owners are friendly and helpful if you have questions.
I would stay here again but probably in one of their cottage rooms which seem to have adjacent garages or storage rooms that seperate one cottage from the other - I believe some have kitchens as well - they seemed quite nice, probably quieter and I believe that they're even less expensive than the suites - overall we enjoyed our stay though!
