Thanks to TripAdvisor we found this great family motel in Fort Bragg. As part of the motel, there is a super 18 hole miniature golf course. Our room included a free round of golf for the entire room (spouse and 7 yr old grandson). Super friendly and helpful staff and very nice room. But most impressive was the fact that since the room rate had gone down since I made the reservation I was told (upon checking in) that my rate had been adjusted and was now $50 LESS than my previously confirmed rate. Clearly an establishment that puts the customer first.
This hotel advertises as pet friendly. It’s not. They have only a few rooms they allow pets in and you have to specifically make a reservation for one of those when you book. We had a three night reservation and were not offered any option by the “family friendly” manager for having a dog with us on a weekend when every other place was full. It was suggested one of us could sleep in the car with the dog. On behalf of dog owners everywhere, take this off the pet friendly list.
Stayed here for one night on our trip up the coast. Arrived a little later than we wanted, but we were still able to check-in and drop our stuff off quickly enough that we got in a round of mini-golf. My boys appreciated the golf and arcade on the premises. They had fun with both. We were in the room directly above the lobby, but it was surprisingly quiet. Room was clean and comfortable. I only subtracted 1 star because there's no AC. Wifi was strong.
On our southward journey down the coast we spent three nights with this hotel as our base. It was convenient and well staffed. It was clean. We were in the second building across the street from the office.
Very friendly front desk staff. Room was super clean and had everything we wanted or needed. The bed was very comfy after a long day on the road. I was slightly worried that the room might be close to the arcade, but they have wisely built that away from the rooms, so that isn't a problem.
We stayed the night on our way to the Oregon coast. Emerald Dolphin hits all the marks on your check list: clean, comfortable, quiet (the kids in the next room bouncing around quieted down by 8pm 🙂). We enjoyed the mini golf on the property. The gal at the check in desk was friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we booked a 2nd night for our trip back home in a few days.
We've been on the road for 10 days, stayed at expensive resorts, fancy hotels, etc and this place offered the best service. The room was super sparkly clean. Shower was awesome! Towels are huge and luxurious. Coffee great! The best part was the super comfy bed and pillows!!! Some of the most expensive places we've stayed had really lousy beds. This little place has great beds! Best night's sleep we've had in 10 days. The manager was super helpful and the book that someone created in the room was amazing-full of helpful information about everything. They even have a list of movies, by category to get at he front desk. We didn't play golf, but it's nice. We brought our golden retriever and they greeted her with a bed, a water and food dish and cookies! Soooo thoughtful. Everything about this place is wonderful. It was a very good price as well. Tip: Close the front window because of noise from the street and open wide the bathroom window for cool, ocean air. It was perfect.…
I did pebble beach , Torres pines and bandon dunes , but no place has been friendly ,offers more of a challenge and been a better value than the Emerald dolphin .The rooms are modern and I'm getting strong internet , the course was pleasant and club rental was free . I still might give the nod to the old course in Saint Andrews and the hotel but the weather's better in Fort Bragg and so are the restaurants
The Emerald Dolphin Inn is a very clean and well appointed hotel. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of space to move around the room and organize your belongings. We stayed in a room towards the back of the street and sleep quality was excellent. Hotel is close to many restaurants and provides free mini golf to guests. I highly recommend the Emerald Dolphin Inn. All rooms are located outside which is safer during COVID-19 instead of walking hallways indoors. There are also plenty of safe parking spaces to choose from.
This is very clean and well maintained motel. We had a nice double queen with a fridge, table for two and basic bathroom. The bed was nice and comfortable and staff friendly. We also had fun using their Mini Golf and their arcade next door. We would definitely book it again.
