          Great place and excellent value! Kash made sure we had everything including fruit on the house. Great gardens interspersed with benches and grills for BBQ. A fire pit for after dinner relaxing. All in all highly recommend for a fun experience and clean overnight stay.

          Not aware of smoking signs, because I gave it up 30 years ago. I naturally asking for non-smoking. Wasn't over enthused about the Surf Motel, but enjoy Fort Bragg. R

          I have never noticed, i generally stay there when i run up to go Abalone diving, so a fancier place is not really needed. The Surf is clean, not overly stuffy, fits my needs for a hit shower, ckean bed. and a nice rest stop.

          Are the rooms non-smoking? They don't say.
