On our drive north on Hwy 1 we called the hotel from about 30 minutes away. Our stars must have aligned, because we got the last room! We were warmly greeted by the clerk upon arrival, and when we went to our room we were pleasantly surprised at its' updates, cleanliness, and comfort. And robes... We had lovely robes to... More

We stayed at the Surf and Sand lodge for two nights in the middle of July. We specifically came to Fort Bragg to visit Glass Beach. The room was very clean and spacious and had an ocean view. There was a great continental breakfast provided next door at their sister property. The staff were very friendly. The beaches along this... More

Living on the east coast I was reluctant to little beach places, but I was very happy and surprised by this little gem. We checked in on July 5th just for the night. We were traveling north on the coastal highway. The man that checked us in was great and made us feel very welcome. I loved the fact that... More

We had a second floor room with a great view of beautiful sunsets over the Pacific, and we thoroughly enjoyed the balcony for reading during the day and star-gazing at night. Taking long walks here is delightful and easy; the best access to the nearest beach is at the north end of the pedestrian bridge (just south of the hotel),... More

We were travelling down the whole of the US Pacific coast, North to South, and when we came upon the Surf and Sand Lodge we struck gold. This is a magnificient location to simply stop and enjoy what's around you. There are three lodgings, side by side in North Main Street, and this is by far the best. The owner,... More

We won't stay anywhere else in town again. Prime beach access. The buildings have an apartment-like feel with 5 rooms in each building. Our downstairs unit had a vaulted ceiling. Room rate better than bargain hotels in town on prime holiday weekend.

We will go back again for sure. The view and the room was wonderful. The next time we will be staying longer. And doing some activities while we are there. We will be going on the skunk train to get some pictures.

We stayed here without a reservation and took the second to last room. It was a pet friendly room but this wasn't really noticeable. The room was really well cleaned. The only real reasons I didn't give the room a better rating was because there were a couple of tears in the bedhead and the room didn't have AC. The... More

Thank you for your review, Jeremy M. Most hotels on the coast aren't equipped with air conditioning due to the fact that it rarely gets hot enough. We have been experiencing some great weather lately and if your room is too hot we can provide portable fans at the front office. While we don't offer breakfast on site, you are... More

(Just a warning...we went in June and it was freezing! We had to buy jackets.) We loved this place! The ocean view from our patio was amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful. The trail path was right outside our back door. We have no complaints about anything. The continental breakfast was a bit of a challenge. The breakfast room... More
