“Great value, friendly mom and pop owners, downtown location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Older but clean motel. Don't be put off by other reviews. This motel is a great value. The funky eclectic furniture adds some character. Propane heater was fast and quiet. Shower hot with great water pressure and flow - better than the high priced chain we stayed at two nights ago. Grounds nicely maintained with good lighting. Nice owners. Jess and Mark! Olympia, WA

We were so dissatisfied with what we found, we left one hour after check-in gladly sacrificing our $200 two-day cost for a better place. It is not "Oceanside". The ocean is several blocks away behind industrial buildings. Room was very poorly lighted with the lowest wattage fluorescent bulbs. There was no light near the desk which was an old painted small table. Office people were unfriendly and the office had a strong smell of curry which clung to my clothes. The place was noisy.

We found this hotel just by chance browsing through hotelcoupons.com. The price was very reasonable.
Once we got there we found everything clean, up-to-date and all that one could ask for. The rooms, the reception, and the whole hotel had a really nice cultural decor. The staff was great as well. Do stay there!

We always use trip advisor before we stay anywhere but we had no cell service and had to choose a hotel last minute based on what we saw outside. When we pulled up the hotel looked very well kept,fresh paint, and in a good location. We looked around and saw no creepy cars just rental cars so we decided it was a good place to sleep for the night. The gentleman who helped us was very nice so we felt pretty lucky at the time to have stumbled there. Upon entering the room there was a very strange smell, like cat pee and 30 year old carpet mixed together.The furniture was very old and the paint was chipped. There was also a very creepy closet that gave me the heebie jeebies. We dont need a fancy place to sleep and we were tired so we just decided to ignore the signs. We then went back outside to grab our luggage and a stray cat ran out when we opened the door! Omg. It was that point that I thought about sleeping in the car. Anyway, after wiping my face and also realizing there was someone elses hair on the towel I just wiped my face with we sucked it up and went to bed. The next day we left so fast that I forgot some of my stuff there. We were grateful we had somewhere to lay our heads and freshen up but a stray cat darting out of your room and startling you at 12 am when youre zombie tired is not the greatest feeling in the world. We were reminded of a valuable lesson today, never judge a book by its cover. Oceanside Inn you have potential, its time for a makeover.

Although not Oceanside, the room was adequate for an overnight stay. Although old and dated it was somewhat clean. I'm not sure where the suites were but definitely not ours. The fridge and microwave were working adequately. There was a coffee pot but we didn't use it. We don't drink coffee and can't use it for boiling water as the coffee taste goes through the water. The Danish cut in half was a joke, the plastic wrap was stuck in the filling.

Neither "Oceanside" nor an inn, this run-down motel is trying to pass itself off as a vacation spot. Seeing the fumigators at work when we arrived was ?reassuring? On a bright note the room was clean and the staff promptly returned our lost cell phone. The long-term residents made my kids uncomfortable so we left early despite paying in advance.

This was the cheapest place to stay in Fort Bragg, CA but not very up to date. If on a pinch this will be an okay place to stay. The rooms are old but somewhat clean. They do have refrigerator and microwave as well as coffee pots.
