Nice room, and very quiet. Had a Tv , microwave, and small frig. Bathroom was well up to date with a large sunken bathtub, and some units had a Hot Tub on the patios. Decent price for just stopping in with no reservation and last minute on our way to Fort Bragg. Two downsides to staying here were, there were... More

I wanted to get away from it all for a couple of days to recharge and reflect. I arrived at SFO after 18:00. I called the lodge and they said they would leave instructions to get into my room. I arrived after 01:00 and immediately found my room, key waiting for me. It was magic, total quiet except for the... More

Very nice hotel with a friendly couple of owners. Fireplace in the room, hot jacuzzi outside, that is very appreciated in a cool climate. A raccoon that came by and was not afraid of the people. Elegant, beautifully decorated room. Nice cozy bed. Solitude in nature and beautiful landscape.

The air is clear, the ocean is near, the owner/managers are dear so have no fear, you'll be satisfied if you go with reasonable expectations. Unit #7 ,a small room, offers an ocean view from the patio. Some necessities as amenities provided. The microwave and very mini fridge are necessary cause no dining nearby. Somewhat adequate store across the street.... More

Nice size room with mini kitchen, sauna, jacuzzi tub with the view, fire place....clean. We stayed Hill side and was very quiet, away from Hwy 1 and noise. No dining around here. Can drive to Ocean Cove, Sea ranch and Gualala for dinner. Room 18 building has upstairs room and bit noisy from upstairs though. Ask for top floor room.... More

We had a one night getaway at Fort Ross and really enjoyed it. We stayed up on the hill and had our own hot tub, which we initially thought we wouldn't use, but it was gorgeous, with a view of the Pacific. The view was beautiful and calm, and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The room was very clean,... More

We stayed one night in a King room with fireplace and hot tub on the patio under the stars - couldn't have been more relaxing! Mark and Angela were extremely nice and welcoming, even though we arrived just after check-in hours. The room was huge, and at the far end of the complex (#17). This made for great privacy, but...

Stayed one night on way to Mendocino and would have loved to stay another night. Very welcoming and helpful staff (owners I think). Beautifully maintained grounds. Cabin was very spacious, nicely decorated and furnished with microwave, refrig and fireplace. Room opened into a small but private patio with Weber BBQ grill and hot tub. Stayed in cabin #16. Beautiful view... More

We were on a motorcycle tour up Hwy 1 in California when we ran out of daylight and began to look for a place to stay, and this was the ONLY place within many miles, so we took a chance. So glad we did, we were exhausted and hungry and there wasn't a restaurant open for miles. The new managers... More
