I've visited Fort Bragg several times a year for over 20 years. And, by far the Beachcomber is the best place to stay, especially if you love a view, and easy access to the beach. They also have a great biking trail, and they are pet friendly. The 2nd floor rooms have a nice balcony, which gives you privacy from...

I had the luxury of getting a signature massage at the Beachcomber Motel and Spa while enjoying my visit to Fort Bragg. Now I have had massages at Massage Envy and a place called Mellow Me Out which was great but by far getting a massage in Fort Bragg at the Beachcomber Motel was the best. The masseuse was excellent...

Romantic with its views and we love staying there. They have microwaves in the rooms which is great if you just want to enjoy the view and not leave. There's bbqs on the patio deck if you want to grill up dinner and a pizza place that delivers too.

Was a little apprehensive staying with our dog but could not have found a better place for short weekend stay. Arrived about 7 on Friday and greeted by a friendly receptionist. Given a very spacious room but right by the main road. Noise was not a problem and the room was great with a wonderful little kennel and stand with...

Girls weekend was perfect at the beachcomber! So close to the shore and the view was amazing. We went a couple miles down the road to the glass beach and dinner at Silvers. Breakfast the next morning was great. We took it back to our room and ate with a view. Bike trails are 10 feet outside the room! Doesn't...

My wife and I decided to enjoy a little getaway along the California coast and chose to check out Fort Bragg. I found a great deal on Groupon for The Beachcomber Motel and Spa. The description and amenities sounded great, so we booked it months in advance. The Beachcomber certainly delivered. The room was very clean, the staff were courteous...

Stayed in rm 102 on a rainy week. It was VERY clean! The view was amazing. The access to the sandy beach is a little steep but so close! The paved trail is right out the front door and quick walking to the sea glass beach! We enjoyed the free breakfast, at the fire pit, which we also enjoyed after...
