We are just finishing up a trip to Fort Bragg. The top places on tripadvisor were not available - so we decided to try the Seabird Lodge because we were bringing our dog. We knew we had not booked the Ritz - so our expectations were met. The people at the front desk are very pleasant and make the lobby homey and pleasant. There were a variety of muffins, coffee, juice, and yogart in the morning that were all quite pleasant. Our dog was welcome and was not given a second look once we arrived. The room was basic, but comfortable. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room. My children liked that they had a wide variety of tv channels, including Disney and had free WI FI. The room got a little stuffy, even with the weather being cool. Luckily they did have a fan in the room and opening the window helped. The pool and spa were also pleasant. It is not a place to jump up and down about and get all excited - but felt pleasant and safe. It doesn't have a view, but is definately close to everything and easy to find.
Probably the only negatives were some rude people who were staying at the motel, including a person who had a large dog they didn't put on a leash that scared my dog and children, a person who parked so close to my car that I couldn't get into my car through the driver's side - even though there was ample parking, two men who started a loud conversation about surfing around 4:00 in the morning outside my door, and two men on motorcycles who reved their cycles for ten minutes vibrating the building around 7:30 a.m. But that is not the motel's fault. Luckily tonight it is quiet - they must have all left!

Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Seabird. Sorry the early birds were not respectful of you and our other guests. Hope to see you on a future visit...
