This lodging hotel has the best location. It is placed at the far end of Fort Bragg and there is no road between you and the Pacific, just a walking trail stretching along the coastline. Peaceful and so relaxing. The hotel is a little dated, our room, 40, had a strange layout with the fridge close by to the bed.... More

We loved the view from our second floor room. It included a jacuzzi and fireplace. The motel fronts on a paved trail that runs along the coast for about ten miles. We rented bikes at an adjacent motel and enjoyed a couple of nice rides up the coast. Staff very nice, rooms very clean. We would love it if they... More

A rare location atop the ocean bluffs with no road between you and the beach. If the weather allows, leave your door open and sleep to the sounds of the surf. Best views from the upper floor. An older (vintage) motel, but very large rooms and well maintained. Be sure and walk the beach and the nearby pedestrian trestle.

This hotel is right on the Pacific, with a gorgeous view! The rooms are large with a separate sitting area and outdoor sitting area. It is a little dated, BUT, the cleanliness and views make up for it! There are walking, paths to view the ocean that has incredible scenery for spectacular pictures! There is no breakfast here, but Denny's... More

Got this room last second on a weekend when everything else in town was fully booked. When we arrived, we were checked in quickly and made it into our room. Once inside we found a few issues. First off there were no blinds for the glass door on the ocean side of the room. They broke before our visit and... More

Just 5 mins north of town, there are 3 motels directly on the coast. This one is the oldest but has huge rooms , appx 500 sq feet. I think that's how they get away with charging more than the other 2 motels that were newer and had more ammenities. No breakfast here, but staff was friendly. Best part was... More

We had picked up this place for the ocean views and we were not disappointed. The set up is that of a motel. The old couple who seemed to own the place were very polite and helpful. The rooms were very large even though a bit out of date. It was a cold night so we would like to have... More

After searching for lodging in Mendocino and Fort Bragg and looking at so many pictures of small, old-fashioned rooms (some even without private baths) for exorbitant prices, I thought I'd found gold when I saw the pictures of Ocean View Lodge with its spacious rooms, columns, and ocean views. I think the contrast prevented make me from looking more carefully... More
