The Mrs and I went to Fort Bragg for little getaway by ourselves. Wound up at the Emerald Dolphin Inn. Planned on one night, we actually spent two nights there. It's at a major intersection across from a McDonalds, but isolated enough to not notice. There is a grocery store near by with many shops (laundry, pizza, pharmacy). The Inn takes pets which was a major reason for going there. We didn't have reservations, so we called a few places once we arrived in town. There are lots of hotels in Fort Bragg, we knew we'd find something. The exterior apperance is very good, two floors of fairly modern looking buildings. Plenty of parking on well paved lot. There is a large open grassy field to the south for walkng the dogs. The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. We told them we wanted to ride on the Skunk Train; they said they could order the tickets for us, which they did. They gave us infor about the town and what roads to go on for our driving vacation. The room was large, two queen beds, a nook/eating area, microwave, fridge, vanity, and of course bath room. Price was about $100 a night for the two of us plus additional $10 for the dogs. Oh yea - there is a hair stylist shop there. We had a great time. There are many other places that would charge twice the amount for the same thing. There is a road that goes west to the ocean -- cliffs are about 1/4 mile away. Nice walk, very quiet, saw 5 or 6 deer. I wouldn't hesitate to go there again.
