Colombi Motel
Ranked #14 of 23 Hotels in Fort Bragg
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I am 76 years old and suffer from severe allergies. This is the first place I have ever found that lives up to its promise of allergen free. I could tell horror stories over the years of places which also promised this, but Colombi actually delivered. Never had any problems any night. If I had just been driving by I probably never would have stopped, as it is an unremarkable 50's style motel. Trust me, however, that it delivers with total cleanliness. You won't be disappointed!

Just spent two nights here based on other reviews. Homey family run place. The room was very clean, the staff friendly and accommodating, and even though you have to go across the street to the family's grocery store for registration and service, no problems. The is a '50s style motor court, with a car port next to each room. They didn't plan for large SUV's in the 50's so we elected to park in front of our room. I don't think the door would have opened enough to get out had we pulled into the small spot. It would be fine for sedans though.

Price was $65+ taxes, as we were just a couple of days after their seasonal rate change to higher rates. The weather didn't reflect the summer season though. It was a ittle pricy, but Fort Bragg and the Mendocino coast tend to be that way. Lots to do around the town. Be sure and ride the Skunk Train through the redwood forests.

We took the train ride and low and behold for the first time in over 25 years two of the train cars derailed. They promptly move everyone in the two other cars detached the two at the end of the train that were off the tracks and we returned on a half hour late from the scheduled arrival time back in Fort Bragg. Singing Conductor on the train was great, very entertaining.

We used this motel as a base of operations as we explored the gorgeous California coastline and visited the giant redwoods. It was a fantastic find. Honestly, it was the most immaculate place we have ever stayed! The bed was comfortable and the staff, across the street at the small market, were friendly and helpful. We appreciated the strict rules, like no smoking of ANY kind and no wet towels left on the floor because they added to the cleanliness of the room. We have recommended this motel to family living in California and friends traveling that way.

We stayed only one night, but could have stayed longer, we were so pleased with the accommodation. Staff was friendly, beds were comfy. We arrived later rhan we expected and it was no problem. We'll be back!

We stayed one night during our drive up the coast. The outside is well maintained and we loved the character of it. We also admired the fact the owners are very dedicated to continue the family business their grandparents started back in the day. We stayed in a larger room which had a huge kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator and a well lit large bathroom. What an incredible deal, especially if someone should need to stay long term or have a huge family. We have to say although the inside of our room did not have the character that the outside had (we were hoping that, but that is somewhat unrealistic to expect), it was so clean and very comfortable. The rooms were sparsely decorated, you can see small traces of its history (ie. knobs on the cabinets), but freshly painted and extremely well maintained. The family that runs the motel also owns the corner store and during our stay all hotel business was done at the store. You can contact the owners during non-business hours if there is an emergency. Our only advise was we wished the employee that gave us the keys (not an owner) would have told us that the room next to us was being used for production of an independent horror movie. For few hours in the early evening we heard constant angry mumbling and ranting, loud enough for us to turn the television up and worry a bit for this was out of character for this place. To our relief the next morning when we checked out, the mystery was solved.

This was the third low-end hotel we stayed at in Fort Bragg and was by far the best. It is more like an apartment than a hotel room, with separate kitchen and eating area. It really makes a visit to Fort Bragg a pleasant and homey experience. The rules were sensible and not overbearing, like don't leave wet clothes on the carpet - logical.

The motel is an older one but has been kept up and freshly painted and is very clean. From the outside, you wonder a little... Then you open the door and you're at home!

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle of the row are the quietest.

I've been vacationing in Fort Bragg for 40 years. I've rented houses, stayed in hotels and camped. The Columbi, hands down, is the best deal. Where else can you get a room for six with a kitchen for $90 a night on a holiday weekend? The rooms are clean and the location is close to everything. The hotel is run by a very nice family. I've stayed here 7 times now and look forward to many more stays.
