“Perfect, just perfect!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Wow! What a find! I'm almost reluctant to write this review because once the secret is out, it will be impossible to find an available room at Shoreline Cottages. Everything, from the decor to the toiletries to the room appointment to the cleanliness to the hot tub to the facilities on-site to the proximity to the beach--everything at Shoreline Cottages was perfect. We and our two kids didn't want to leave. Can't say enough good stuff about this place!

We were very pleased to have found Shoreline Cottages for our Mendocino coastal visit.First time but not the last. We love taking our dogs and they are welcomed with pooch dishes, cookies and towels to clean off the sand from the beach. Rooms have plenty of space for crates. Also provided are "pooper bags" and lots of area to walk in the morning and prior to bedtime. I've traveled on the coast before but never met house keepers as good as the ones at Shoreline Cottages, very pleasant and provided early clean space with ample towels, wash clothes, A+ for Housekeeping.

Room Tip: We stayed toward the back of the property and that eliminated highway noise, Rm 9, was a good choice...

This was my wife and I's first time visiting Fort Bragg and we chose the Shoreline Cottages due to the great reviews on Tripadvisor and Yelp. Check in was fast and the room we stayed in (the shell room) was nice and clean. At one point, our toilet was clogged and as soon as I let the office know they took care of it. The shower was a little tight but overall this was a great choice for us. It's close to the Botanical garden and a short drive from the wharf. I highly recommend it.

This was the third time I have stayed at Shoreline. As always the accommodations were clean and comfortable. This visit I was with a fairly large group and all were accommodated comfortably. Kim, the manager was helpful in many ways and her coconut cookies sprinkled with hearts were to die for. MariaLuisa, one of the housekeepers spoiled me rotten!

We have stayed at Shoreline before. We enjoy it here for many reasons. 1 we love taking our dogs and they love dogs. A lot of room for them. Dog beds, treats and bowls are given for no extra charge. The staff is so helpful and the cottages as small and cute. I like having a kitchen ( even though its a little small) but I get to save money by cooking. I will stay at Shoreline every time I come to the coast.

I always stay at Shoreline when I visit Fort Bragg. The cottages are cozy, quiet and clean. We had a large group of friends and they accommodated all of you needs. We enjoyed the firepit and the hot tub. Can't wait to come back!

This was a last minute trip to the coast to enjoy some rare January sunshine. The Shoreline Cottages had very good reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to give them a try. We had the Dolphin room with an electric fireplace and a kitchenette. The first thing we noticed is how clean the room and kitchen were. The queen bed was very comfortable. The room, kitchenette and bath were not large but were big enough not to feel cramped. Good working WiFi was an extra we didn't expect. The only "negative" is that the place is a bit hard to see when your driving down the highway - a bigger sign might help! At $81 per night in January this hotel was a great bargain. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Even though our front cottage was fairly close to the highway, we didn't notice much road noise...
