What is the best place to stay.

Can someone please tell me where is the best place to stay.

I'm considering Sea Cliff n the bluff and the sea ranch. But would consider others.

Thanks

We've stayed at both Sea Ranch and Sea Cliff.....

The key things I liked about Sea Ranch was:

1) Swimming Pool

2) Golf Course

3) Restauarants

4) Walking Trails

If you want one with best oceanview from your room choose Sea Cliff.

Either one is fine to stay at.

I'd choose based on price and the above

View versus other features...

Hi Mini

Do you know anything about the Ocean view lodge in Fort Bragg.

Thanks

Unfortunately not.

I did take a peak at it from the web site and it looked nice from the pictures. Location looked good.

But unfortunately don't know much more about that particular property. There are a fair number of nice smaller lodges like that along the Fort Bragg to Mendocino area and all have pretty views. I liked the fact that it was by the ocean (I find that staying in town in Ft. Bragg is sometimes an interesting experience...meaning staying by the ocean is much better.)

Is this for 1 night? If so, I'd say Go for it.

If you don't mind driving the 10 miles between Mendocino and Fort Bragg, Mendocino is also a wonderful place to stay.

Two properties close to Mendocino I think are wonderful are:

I like

Little River Inn

http://www.littleriverinn.com/

Its close to Van Damme State Park - very fun place to visit.

Its more in the trees...i.e. the place you found has a much nicer ocean view.

Stanford Inn by the Sea

http://www.stanfordinn.com/

Its not directly ocean front -but lovely place to stay.

But like I said - I think the place you found will probably be quite nice for your stay.

I would recommend the Brekers Inn in Gualala. Very nice.
