Holiday Inn Express Fort Bragg
Ranked #12 of 23 Hotels in Fort Bragg
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were here for 4th July and the HIE was the only hotel which still had availability and yet the price was still reasonable. The hotel is situated a mile outside Fort Bragg and located next to a ravine which offer great views (if you have the right room). The hotel offers a pool and breakfast is included. As expected for a HIE the room was large, very clean and boasted two double beds.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the ravine.

We had a nice two evenings at this hotel. Staff incredibly friendly. Room exceptionally clean. Breakfast fresh and warm each morning. Large pool for the kids. Was a very positive experience. The town was not as impressive. Would not return to Fort Bragg again.

Room Tip: The BBQ restaurant on South end of town was outstanding.

Had to get out of the Sac Valley heat and needed to bring the two mini-dachs and the family was missing the Coast. Used points but was still nervous bringing the pets....I was so wrong! Its literally at the intersection of Hwy 1 and Hwy 20!..roughly 1 mile south of downtown Fort Bragg. This is a multi-level Hi Ex with the pet rooms on bottom floor and at the end. Perfect spot. Room was standard 2 queen (reserve room with view if you have pets....) Plenty of lawn to walk dog but no access to inlet behind hotel. An awesome local market like a whole foods/trader joes across the road and even a McDonalds if thats your need. Great pool and hot tub with outside views of inlet and foggy town. Breakfast was just the way we like it...scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits/gravy and every type of juice they offer! The best people were the young ladies (...yes all of you no matter what the age!....) who constantly took care of every person who came in, even the grumpy ones, and did it with grace. The only way its not a 5 all rooms are outdoor access and my wife's gonna kill me if I keep telling everybody about the great Intercontinental and hilton places!!!!

Room Tip: Rooms for pets are the ones noted above. All rooms face the hwy but never heard noise.

Just spent one night in Fort Bragg and chose this hotel because it had a room with 2 queen beds and there were 3 of us traveling together. Our room was clean and well laid out, the beds were a little softer than I'm used to but I slept well anyway. The air conditioner worked great on a hot day (temperature in the 80's)! The free breakfast was adequate. We did not use the pool or hot tub so can't comment about that. Quick tip: We were on the 3rd floor and the elevators are slow. Just take the stairs if you are not hauling luggage up and down.

Clean, pool, hot tub, helpful staff, great location. This is a great place for staying with kids and has the same consistent quality that one expects from holiday inn express. I'd stay here next time I'm in fort Bragg.

Very unique and nice hotel in this coastal town that is easy to get to and convenient to many area attractions. The exterior appearance is unlike what you may expect for a HE Express, but fits nicely with the area. The interior is nicely updated and clean, but I wish the breakfast area wasn't so cramped. This hotel can get very busy during peak tourist times, so expect to bring your breakfast back to your room if you want to have your breakfast during a busy time. However, a small issue that shouldn't influence your decision to stay since this place is overall very nice.
