“What was that smell?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a family suite with a separate bedroom. It is a great idea for Noyo to have this to offer. However. The room smelled horrible. Since we had our children with us I was not comfortable leaving the doors open for fresh air. We went to Safeway and purchased plug in air fresheners but that did not help at all. It smelled like sewage and mold. It would have been a great stay other than that.

We are aware of this problem, at times the exhaust vent from one of the guest laundry dryers come off the back of the dryer. We are reinstalling the venting to eliminate the problem. We wish you would have brought this to our attention during your stay. Please contact us so we may process a refund for you. You simply need to leave your name, date of stay, and phone number for the general manager. We're sorry you did not have a better experience with us.

There is no place like Fort Bragg, and no place like the Harbor Lite Lodge. Even before you drive over the Noyo Bridge you know you are somewhere special. Then, when you get to your room at the lodge and you see your balcony you can't help but stand there staring in awe over your view of the harbor. The rooms have varying views from the bridge and the ocean, to the harbor and the yachts. So charming you never want to leave. The prices are unbelievable and the property is so well maintained you feel like you just got away with a steal! We stay here on a regular basis and look forward to our next stay. LOVE!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view room. Most of them are, but you want to make sure that you get one! There is n...

The Harbor Lite in Fort Bragg is a perfectly adequate motel for a good price in a nice location overlooking the harbor. Though it's an older property, the room was well-kept with comfortable beds. I have occasion to visit Fort Bragg from time to time, and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room which had a deck view of the harbor.

This has become our favorite place to go when we visit fort bragg. The rooms are big and clean. It has anemities like a refrigerator, microwave and a balcony overlooking the harbor. There is an access to walk to the beach. The staff is friendly and they have a breakfast buffet. The price is very reasonable for wonderful accommodations.We have stayed at many other places in Fort Bragg, and I feel this is the best for the price.

My wife, our 2 kids, and I stayed here for 3 nights during a family vacation. The motel is in a great location overlooking Noyo Harbor. It also has a footpath down to the harbor and you can walk to a couple of good restaurants and a beach. The room was clean, comfortable and had a deck with a great view. A good continental breakfast is included in the room rate, and coffee is served in the lobby all day. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. They also have a sauna and laundry facilities on site. We will be coming back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the harbor.

Our room was well-appointed, clean and modern. The private balcony overlooking the harbor added to our enjoyment. Staff were friendly and helped to create almost a family-home atmosphere. Loved little touches like organic coffee for the in-room coffeemaker and homemade granola on the breakfast bar. Definitely would return here and recommend it to others.

Very comfortable rooms, many with balconies overlooking the Noyo River (and road bridge). We had an excellent view of the river and harbour. Good breakfast (included in the rate) in the lobby. The staff were friendly and helpful. Free WiFi in the rooms was very useful. Conveniently situated for Noyo Harbor and Fort Bragg. My partner recommends riding the Skunk Train.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the harbour also overlook the high road bridge, which can be noisy. However, t...
