Lovely ocean view from the room with a deck. Great fire pit on the first floor for the chilly evening. Short walk to the beach. Nice continental breakfast and fireplace inside the first floor common room. Room was average, but adequate. Carpeting in the bedroom was unusually soiled.

This was my first time staying at the Beachcomber, I've stayed at many other motels and places in the Fort Bragg area over 40 years. Although it's an older motel the rooms we were in seemed to have been re-done or re-modeled. The beds were very comfortable and the room looked very inviting when you walked in. Although the bathroom... More

The views are great and the king room is quite large; however, the bathroom is rather cramped. Loved the patio, walking path, and fire pits. Bathroom amenities were very nice! Check-in time is 3 pm, I arrived around 3:30 and my room still wasn't ready. I had to wait at least half an hour before I could get in. Breakfast... More

Thank you, Idagogranny, for your review! I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. I apologize that your room wasn't ready by 3pm. Our summer is our busiest season and we try very hard to make sure all rooms are ready by 3pm. Breakfast is set up in the lobby from 7am-9:30am; I suggest going early to beat the breakfast rush.

We take our dog on our trips, so we are limited in motels we can stay. This was a jewel. Where do I start. Our room had a dog house in it. You heard me right, in the room. It also had a doggie door to an enclosed dog run only for our dog. :). Received treats, poop bags and... More

We usually tent camp but still stay in hotels 2-3 times per 2 week trip and always stay in hotels during winter get aways. Usually Holiday Inn's, etc. We all agree this is hands down top on our list!

I have reviewed many 4 star hotels and this humble Beachcomber still is our favorite. The bathroom is tight, but the whole place continues to be well maintained and tastefully decorated, and the location and view have never been matched by anywhere we have been. The personnel are very nice, very efficient, great. We come for a week at a... More

It's been nine months since our last stay at The Beachcomber and the work they've done is phenomenal! A gorgeous new deck, new stairs, new landscaping, beautiful FIRE PITS, outdoor propane heaters and I'm sure I'm overlooking something else, but you get the picture.

Stayed in king size room and slept well. Room was decorated nicely, very clean and had a beautiful ocean view.

Everyone we dealt with was amazingly helpful, friendly and accommodating. Travelling with 91 yr old was concerning, however they helped us make it work for her. Great room, with ocean view, fire pit on deck in front of room allowed for evening mingling with other occupants. It was a really nice weekend.
