.After driving along a very dark and narrow road for 30 plus miles, we arrived after 10:00 pm We never really saw much of the ocean view in the pm or the am. We had to leave very early the next morning. Our room was clean, although dated in furnishings, and amenities. Not enough seating in the breakfast area, and... More

Very comfortable, clean and well furnished rooms with a small but usable balcony with great view of the Ocean. Unlike another review, we found the beds very comfortable. Dog friendly but $20 per night per dog. Right on the path that runs along the bluffs which leads to Glass Beach and which is great for walking or riding a bicycle.... More

Thank you for your review, John L! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! You are right, the paved coastal trail is great for a morning walk or an afternoon bike ride!

The rooms have more of a small condo vibe, each with a deck and ocean view, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The rooms were clean, the amenities organic, natural & recyclable. There is a paved walking path oceanside with little trails leading down to the beach. The complimentary breakfast is next door at the Beachcomber which we did not mind... More

Stayed in a ground floor sea view room. Five rooms to a block. Very quiet when we stayed. Views over the sea were magnificent, saw several whales just as the sun was going down. Nice trails to walk or you can hire a bike from the sister hotel next door, the Beachcomber Motel. Our room was very clean with nice... More

We spent three nights at the Surf and Sand Lodge in Fort Bragg. We were very disappointed with the condition of our pet friendly room. There was a very strong odor and the carpet had many, many stains....at least 25. We did not even feel comfortable walking without shoes on while inside. We have been to numerous pet friendly hotels... More

Thank you, docprof, for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at our hotel recently. As you mentioned, paying a pet fee ensures that your room is in good condition. We will have the room you stayed in, as well as all others, deep cleaned as soon as possible to remove carpet stains and any pet odor. I... More

The room was nice, but the amenities were lacking. I felt like we were the unwanted step children of the Beachcomber Hotel. Breakfast was not served at our hotel, we had to walk to the hotel a couple of doors down. Internet wasn't working at our hotel, so we had to walk to the hotel a couple of doors down...you... More

The room was well prepared and clean down to the last detail. The view was excellent. We really appreciate the pet friendly rooms and attitude. The facility is located in a great section of the town and going out for meals was hassle free. I really enjoyed the free newspapers at the front desk.

Very Lazy room cleaner sometimes she didn't even make the bed of empty waste cans - pet rooms have really bad views and the room was WAY OVERPRICED for what you get there - I like their sister hotel Beachcomber much better

Great location and beautiful views. It was nice being able to see the ocean and hear the waves from our room. Stepped off the back deck to a walking path along the headlands and a short walk to the beach.
