Very nice room, plus continental breakfast. A little worn in places (carpet & shower) but overall perfectly comfortable and clean for a great price. Manager was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again on return visits to Ft Bragg.

Bed was almost perfect, shower had a good strong stream, towels were nice and not abrasive, I do wish the motels will start using the bigger toilets that are also about 1.5 inches higher. The reason I booked this motel is that there is a cafe, La Playa Mexican restaurant (Excellent), Round Table pizza and a Taco Bell right there.

The hotel's quaint lobby and affection for dogs makes this hotel endearing, even for dog-neutral people like us. It has the flair of a bed and breakfast, but the typical hotel/motel room. However, the last remodeling job must have been done very well, because the rooms are in used, but excellent condition. It really feels like someone made an effort... More

We thought the value for this spot was excellent. The room was clean and had a coffee maker, a hair dryer, a microwave and a refrigerator. They had HBO and wifi was included for as many devices as you want. There is an indoor pool and hot tub. The morning included breakfast was lots of types of full size muffins,... More

I wish I could find places like this to stay when we do have our dogs. The lobby is filled with odes to dogs. But we were dogless this time. A very clean room. Decently comfortable beds. No air conditioning though so it got a bit stuffy by morning. I would stay here again.

Location was perfect for us. It was close to a nice little cafe with home cooking. The room was very nice, no smells like other motels. the people at the front desk were outstanding and the lobby was excellent. There were not any views but it is close to anything you need.

Was a little disappointed in rooms for the price. Rooms small and bathrooms very small. Door cleared toilet by an inch when opening. Pool and spa was nice. View from second story balcony was a brief glimpse of ocean but most back of pizza place and Mexican food restaurant. Sorry but when we go back we will probably stay someplace... More

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. Some of our guestrooms in the north building are a little small. On your next trip request an upstairs west facing room in the main building. These rooms are larger and offer a better, but still distant, ocean view. Our pool and hot tub are big hits with our guests. A soak... More

I think this was a nice room for the amount of money they charge. Very nice people who work there and you can not beat the homemade muffins the owner makes.

Thanks for taking time to post a review of the Seabird. We appreciate it very much. Our staff includes the nicest people on the Mendocino Coast!!! Thanks for mentioning these dedicated people. We keep our rates fair so you will keep coming back. Why spend Mendocino prices when you can stay at the Seabird for less? Glad that you like... More
