Our stay at the Cleone Gardens Inn, in Ft. Bragg, Ca. was the worst I have ever experienced. The management is not only unhelpful with guests requests (such as a phone in the room), but even sarcastic and criticizing of guests requests and questions. Cell phone service is virtually nonexistent in the location, and no phone in the room, no management on site at night, and being the only car in the parking lot during our 5 night stay made us very uneasy to say the least. The kitchen was very poorly furnished. The oven smoked when we turned it on and the smoke detector in the room had been disassembled. The windows were covered with make-shift curtains that barely covered the windows. Also, there is no private pathway to the beach as the website says, unless you like walking through thick jungle! Choose another place. There are many nice place in Ft. Bragg. Don't waste your money here.
