“Good Decent Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

It's a pretty good decent hotel in Fort Bragg. Very close to the main attractions like Glass Beach and Skunk Train. Nice place to stay for couple of days.

I will recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Fort Bragg.

When we pulled into the parking lot to check in during the evening hours of the Fourth of July, I was informed that the water heater of the building where our room would be was broken, and it would not be fixed until Monday, because they could not get the part that's needed during the holiday weekend. No remedy was offered. We had to endure a cold shower that night because everywhere else was fully booked.

At my insistence, they moved us to the main building where there was hot water for the second night. At my request, they also agreed to offer a $25/night discount for the inconvenience we suffered.

The room itself was quite spacious and nice. It also had a microwave and mini-refrigerator which were nice for families with young kids.

Both the Internet and breakfast were complimentary. The breakfast buffet could use some serious improvement, though. There was no vegetables.

They also had a pool which we did not have time checking out at all.

If it were not for the hot water issue, it would have been a great experience.

There is a nice indoor pool, a spa tub, and a fitness center. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available in public areas. There is a business center on site. Guests are served a complimentary breakfast. Additional amenities include coffee/tea in the lobby, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and a safe deposit box at the front desk. Guest parking is complimentary.
You can get lots cheaper in town, but this is clean, comfy and much more classy than the cheaper hotels in FB.

Room Tip: I always suggest not booking near an elevator, stairway, or highway side of a hotal

This facility is a little pricy but a great hotel/motel. I stayed in the hotel section. The room was clean, good mattress and great pillows. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff equally wonderful. The internet was a bit slow. So for the business traveler, that does pose a challenge.However, all in all worth the price of admission, at least from my perspective.

Great rooms. Good sleeping on pillows of your choice that actually have the softness rating right on the pillowcase. Breakfast is OK, plain but hot. Price seems a little high but then you have to consider the area.

The hotel is on Hwy 20 just before the coastal Hwy (1). You can look up the amenities on their web site. I suggest you skip the breakfast and go across the street to David's in The Boatyard for a complete selection instead. Our room overlooked the ravine and was very pleasant with a small balcony. You are close to everything Fort Bragg has to offer, as well as being only about 8 miles from Mendocino, staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the ravine have the better views.

Very nice hotel, we wish we owned one of their mattresses as it is like sleeping on a cloud. Nice breakfast with waffles! The front desk person Sabrina was a ray of sunshine when we arrived as well as when we left! Truly terrific young woman! Gave good recommendations for dinner and on the Skunk Train!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from road!
