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

Thank you, ACJ734, for your review. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Our sister property, Beachcomber Motel, is a larger property and can therefore accommodate more amenities such as breakfast and laundry. I apologize that the WiFi was spotty during your stay, our IT technician has been informed and has it back up and running smoothly. We... 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

Thank you for your review, eric_steinberg. I want to assure you our housekeepers are very thorough in their cleaning of stay over rooms.

We go to Ft. Bragg 2 - 3 times per year and always stay at Surf and Sand. It is our go to place. The rooms are nice, the brunch is good, and we appreciate a refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot in the room. We always request an ocean view and are never disappointed. The beach is a short walk... More

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.

We came in late at night after a long trip across California. The hotel staff was accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. Loved the private balcony, being able to walk down to the beach to watch the sunset, and yes- you get great aromatherapy smelling bath supplies with Robes :) If I ever visit California again, I will be staying there!

The hotel is located in the beach area -- you can see the crashing waves in a distance. Rooms are fairly standard chain type rooms (although this is not a chain). Beds were ok.
