My husband and I wanted to check out the incredible Glass Beach and literally stumbled on the Beachcomber Motel. The location is fabulous, pretty much right on the beach and we enjoyed a leisurely walk to Glass Beach before dinner. We sat on our private balcony to watch the beautiful sunset and saw whales spouting. Our favorite part was listening to the waves crash all night long.
The staff was extremely helpful, especially the young woman working the desk (Gabby?); she allowed us to view two rooms prior to deciding, and gave us several accurate dining tips, as well as directions to various landmarks.
The room was updated and absolutely immaculate, the cleaning staff is excellent.
The small lobby offers a fireplace and cozy area to enjoy coffee and read the paper in the morning.
And to top it all off, all this was just $99! We will dfinitely be back.

What a great time, we had for three nights to bring in the New Year with family and friends. The staff were so friendly and fun. My grandaughter had to dance (she is 4 years old) on New Years Eve, we called down to the lobby and they turned on music for her to dance to. Everyone was so nice to us, our suite was perfect and the best part was the dog friendly atmoshere. The BBQ deck was fabulous. We saw whales in the verizon and the beach access was very easy. Can't wait to come back and stay again.

Last year we were just traveling thru Fort Bragg and discovered this wonderful place to stay. We decided then and there we would be back this year with our family. We were not disappointed for a minute. It was a beautiful place to spend a week while creating some wonderful memories with our family. The service was excellent and the staff was very welcoming and informative about the sights and local attractions. We might just have to make a stay at the Beachcomber an annual family tradition!

I always stay at The Beachcomber Motel when I am on the North Coast. It has the only ovean view of its kind, complete with the sounds of waves. And you can walk right down on the beach, or take the new Pudding Creek Trestle Footbridge right down to glass beach. The rooms and service are spectacular. This motel is always part of the fun for me.

The Beachcomber Motel, Fort Bragg is really nice! The room is as nice as any room I have ever stayed in. They have that amazing bedding that you find at the brand name hotels. Also they are Pet Friendly and have a great area for my puppy to do his business. I can open my sliding glass door and hear the waves crashing on the beach and watch the sunset every evening from patio. I read some other reviews about the staff not being friendly but I am here say that they went out of there way to make feel comfortable and at home.
