we arrived at the hotel on a friday all the hotels required a 2 day stay but this one accomidated with a 1 day stay check in was fast and friendly
The person on the desk was very friendly and knowledgable for things to do and resturants.
the room was clean and spacious with 2 beds in a large room.the rooms were quiet couldnt hear the trafficeven though this motel is on the main highway. the continental breakfast was small but included bagels the kids enjoyed it.

Nasty! Dirty towels dirty rooms, air gaps in doors overall slum like conditions! When we asked for a refund after seeing our room they refused! But finally settledon keeping just $20 for our 5minute review and stay in the room. Surf and Sand on the beach was only $20 more and 1000 times better room!! On the beach too. No more ebb tide for us!!

Dear Guest,

Thanks for being at the Ebb Tide Lodge.

We have received similar complaints from few other esteemed guests who stayed at that time. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

The concerned hotel staff no more works with us and the current team has been fully trained to offer a high degree of hospitality.

We would request you to once again stay with us and get convinced.

Sincerely,

It's a budget place, so don't expect much. The reception was ok. The room was old, but clean as far as I can tell.

I had the absolute worst hotel experience ever in my travels. The woman at the front desk was yelling and cussing with insults that were uncalled for because we said we wanted to go check other hotels due to the rooms being dirty. They have low cleanliness standards. I could not post the profanity that was said to us. Travelers Beware!

This was the worst motel I have ever stayed in. My friend and I were treated absolutely horrible by whom I can only assume was the owner (because no employee would ever treat a customer as horrible as this woman did). Besides this woman being extremely rude, the conditions of the small rooms were horrible; the sheets had stains and hairs all over them, the toilet leaked, the room smelled horrible, and some very interesting looking people knocked on our door at around midnight...hmmmm? I could only assume that this is one of the worst hotels in Fort Bragg, so if you have any other options take them.

This motel on the main highway in town and not on the beach. A lot of amenities are provided in the room for a budget property: microwave, refrigerator, alarm clock, TV, phone, coffee maker, shampoo packet, and (theoretically) a hair dryer. I had a small clean room with one reasonably comfortable queen bed. The bathroom was tiny with a shower stall (no tub), sink, and toilet squeezed into a room a bit bigger than a closet. There was some road noise but it was not bothersome to me. There were a few maintenance issues that were not dealt with during my stay: leaky toilet, burned out bulb, and broken hair dryer. I reported the first two after checking in and was told someone would come fix them but nobody ever came. There was a continental breakfast of cereal, orange juice, and packaged pastries. I had a coupon for a $50 room for a weekday summer stay which is about as low as it gets in Fort Bragg. It was ok for this price but that's about the max I'd pay to stay here.
