“Fantastic getaway!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

We stayed at the Harbor Lite for two nights. What a fantastic find! The room was cozy, clean and had everything we needed. The couch was appreciated and the balcony enjoyed! The staff at the front desk were very kind and helpful. They gave us a good start every morning with a wonderful breakfast. The location was great for what we wanted to do and see and the price was super! I do so hope we can go back there again some day!!!

We stayed here for two nights
And absolutely loved this place.
It was conveniant to all we wanted to do both in fort Bragg and Mendocino.
The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Flat screen tv,microwave and small fridge also coffe maker.couch and small table and there was a balcony with chairs. We had a awesome view of noyo harbor.internet worked fine as we stayed closer to the office.great room for what they charge, will definitely be staying there again.

I have stayed there several times over the past few years and the fact that I keep going back should say something. This past trip I stayed in the King non view room which had a nice view of the garden instead of the river which was fine. The room was clean and has a balcony to sit and enjoy the view. The front desk is friendly and helpful and the breakfast is good to. They will make waffles and hot oatmeal if you wish. The only think I wish they would do is upgrade their TVs to the flat screen. For the money this place is the best for the area.

Husband and I did a road trip from southern CA the week after Christmas making no plans or reservations ending at Ft Bragg. Having no reservations we weren't sure where to stay, but when we saw the harobr and the Lodge, we thought we would see if there were rooms available. We paid for a balcony which overlooks the harbor and we weren't disappointed. Though it was rainy and overcast the day we stayed, we still had a very enjoyable time. Room was large, with a microwave and small refrigerator. Great bath towels also. I hope we head back up there as we will definitely make sure to stay there again.

We pretty much did our trip to Fort Bragg by Tripadvisor ratings and we were not disappointed in the slightest. We had originally planned to go to the top rated Shoreline Cottages but it was very late when we arrived and decided we would rather go somewhere we were pretty much guaranteed a room.
We received a very friendly welcome from an older gentlemen at the desk. When we enquired about a room he gave us 3 options, a cheaper one which was the special for the month or 2 the same with a slightly different view. We weren't sure so he offered to give us all 3 keys to check them out ourselves before we decide which I thought was great service on his behalf. We settled on the more expensive one and then he even gave us 10% off so we were thrilled.
The room was a comfortable size with a nice big bed, a sofa, a flat panel tv with built in dvd player (you can rent dvds from the reception), a microwave, a small refridgerator and coffee making facilities. We enjoyed the view directly overlooking the harbor. You could see the boats coming and going, some seals playing and where the harbor meets the sea. I think it would be even better in the summer with a little bit more action but we were very pleased.
Breakfast was included in the price to our surprise but it is very basic. They made us oatmeal and waffles to order and had cereals, pastries, juices, teas and coffee out on the counter for us to help ourselves.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay so much we actually stayed an extra night as we had originally planned to find a hotel right on the beach edge. However, when we passed Shoreline Cottages we realised they were on the same side of the road as Harbor Lite Lodge, just further up, so were actually in a better spot to access the beach.
The service was great, very friendly and helpful with directions, extremely affordable, rooms were very quiet and they made our trip very easy by supplying a binder in the room with suggested places to visit, recommended restaurants with the menus in the reception area. We plan to visit again as soon as we can, maybe in the whale watching season, and we certainly plan to come back to this place.

We love the views of the harbor from the rooms. You can have your morning coffee or a glass of wine watching the boats come in, go out, or just the activity of the harbor. The staff has been the same wonderful,friendly people for years. Very clean, small refrigs, microwave in rooms. Some rooms near the office get wifi. Location is also great.

A nice hotel close to all attractions in Mendocino. Breakfast was included and included such items as freshly made waffles, pastries, fruits, oatmeal and bread for toast, coffee and assorted juices. Rooms included a balcony with some overlooking the harbor. There is a nice walking trail to go down to the harbor if one likes to hike or walk.
