“A Solid Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

This facility is a little pricy but a great hotel/motel. I stayed in the hotel section. The room was clean, good mattress and great pillows. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff equally wonderful. The internet was a bit slow. So for the business traveler, that does pose a challenge.However, all in all worth the price of admission, at least from my perspective.

Great rooms. Good sleeping on pillows of your choice that actually have the softness rating right on the pillowcase. Breakfast is OK, plain but hot. Price seems a little high but then you have to consider the area.

The hotel is on Hwy 20 just before the coastal Hwy (1). You can look up the amenities on their web site. I suggest you skip the breakfast and go across the street to David's in The Boatyard for a complete selection instead. Our room overlooked the ravine and was very pleasant with a small balcony. You are close to everything Fort Bragg has to offer, as well as being only about 8 miles from Mendocino, staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the ravine have the better views.

Very nice hotel, we wish we owned one of their mattresses as it is like sleeping on a cloud. Nice breakfast with waffles! The front desk person Sabrina was a ray of sunshine when we arrived as well as when we left! Truly terrific young woman! Gave good recommendations for dinner and on the Skunk Train!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from road!

We couldn't get into Mendocino given our last-minute decision to visit, and ended up in Fort Bragg. It's not the most charming place in northern Cal, but it benefits from being only 8-miles up the coast from Mendocino. We found the Holiday Inn Express met our family's needs just fine. The rooms were big enough, very clean, and the beds/pillows very comfy. The breakfast buffet was included, and there's a decent indoor pool and hot tub for a little extra entertainment. We can recommend it to other families and visitors who can't find anything suitable in Mendocino but want to remain on the coast.

My family was very comfortable here during a recent stay. It is somewhat pricey for a Holiday Inn Express, but there just aren't very many places to stay in Fort Bragg.

Housekeeping did an outstanding job-- our room was spotless every day.

Breakfast exceeded my expectations, having several hot items every day in addition to the usual cereal and yogurt and toast. The breakfast attendant was always busy replenishing the food and coffee, and keeping the tables clean.

We will stay here again on our next visit to Fort Bragg!
