“Comfortable and convenient !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed our stay at the Seabird! The lobby was warm and inviting as was the friendly and helpful staff! Took advantage of the great indoor pool and hot tub. Was just what we needed after our days of exploring the Fort Bragg area. The private patio balcony (with a small ocean view) was a great place to just hang out and reflect on the day. Our room with two very comfortable queen beds, was a perfect size and had everything we needed. There were tasty muffins, awesome coffee and nice cold orange juice in the lobby each morning. For a larger breakfast, the Home Style Cafe next door was great!

Thanks for taking the time to post a review of the Seabird. We greatly appreciate it. The upstairs west facing rooms all have distant ocean views--at no additional cost. Request one of these rooms when you call to reserve--800 345 0022. They are first come first serve. The morning muffins are a hit with our guests. I enjoy making them--varieties include chocolate/chocolate chip, lemon poppy seed, maraschino white chocolate, bran zucchini, apricot pecan and several other super flavors. The all time favorite is blueberry. There are at least three kinds each morning. The Seabird front desk clerks are the best!!! Thanks for giving them a well deserved mention. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon.

Very clean, comfortable and conveniently located close to the ocean. Good value for the price! Friendly and helpful staff! Would definitely recommend this hotel especially for those folks needing handicapped accessibility and traveling with a service dog. They are a dog friendly hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of the Seabird. It is greatly appreciated. So glad that you enjoyed your stay. I agree that our staff is friendly--in fact I believe the Seabird staff is the friendliest !!! That and the central location and fair price say it all. Why pay the high prices of Mendocino when you can stay at the Seabird, save money--maybe treat yourselves at Mendocino Chocolate Company. Yummy !!! Hope to see you again soon

Thanks for acknowledging our great staff ! We have the friendliest, most helpful staff on the Mendocino Coast ! Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The Seabird is the place to stay when visiting the Spectacular Mendocino Coast ! Why pay Mendocino prices when you can stay at the Seabird for a lot less. Hope to see you again soon !

When you check in at the Seabird, you will find one of several genuinely friendly people handing you the keys from behind the front desk. Next to that is a large Welcome display for your pet, alongside several highlighted pet photos from their many guests. While many places charge you the pet fee and look at you sternly, reminding you that you'd better not let your pet wreck anything or else, the folks at the Seabird are glad to see you, your family, and your dog.

Rooms were clean and tidy, and the continental breakfast featured homemade muffins in 4 varieties that were out of this world. Please see my pic below for the greatest dog welcome poem!

Thanks for the review! I found the "if your dog can vouch for you..." greeting at a hotel years ago and thought it was clever. Our guests get a laugh out of it. Thank you for giving recognition to our "genuinely friendly" staff. Each and every one of them is indeed friendly and will do all they can to make your stay a memorable one. Hope to see you again very soon! Thanks.

My 2 daughters and I stayed at the Seabird Lodge from April 16 to 18th. We also brought our 2 dogs. The room was plenty large enough, including space for our kennel where we kept our dogs when we were not in the room. The rooms were clean and the service was great. We stayed on the second floor so we could sit on the balcony and see the ocean. The location is convenient to everything. My youngest daughter loves to swim and enjoyed both the pool and the hot tub. In fact, I wished I had brought my bathing suit since the pool was inside and warm and the hot tub looked very inviting. The breakfast was good for a continental breakfast. I liked the coffee and the kids loved the hot chocolate. They also served tea, Tropicana orange juice, yogurt and a great variety of homemade muffins - which were delish!

The beds were comfortable and there was no street noise when the windows and balcony door were closed. My only wish was that we could sleep with the windows open to hear the ocean at night. While the late night and very early morning were quiet enough, the highway noise began around 6 a.m. But as I stated, with the windows and balcony door closed, it was very quiet, and I am a light sleeper!

I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a comfortable, clean and affordable place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room w/a view of the ocean. Although, the first floor rooms at the far end of...

Thanks for the nice review! The indoor heated pool and hot tub are perfect places to relax after a busy day of actvities. Glad you and your family enjoyed them. The muffins have become very popular with our guests. We always feature at least 3 varieties each morning. Blueberry, Chocolate/chocolate chip, Bran/zucchini, Maraschino cherry/ white chocolate, Lemon poppyseed, Cheddar/green onion, and Cranberry/orange are some of the ones we feature. Pool and hot tub, friendly rates and even friendlier people and , of course , the morning muffins--the Seabird is the place to stay on the Beautiful Mendocino Coast ! ! ! ! 800-345-0022

My husband and I wanted a basic room to stay while we were in Fort Bragg to visit Mendocino. The room was very roomy, clean and centrally located to good restaurants. It was a good deal and exactly what we wanted.
