Woke up to a bum sleeping in the doorway, would have stepped on his head if I hadn't looked down first! Had to step over his urine to get out of there. Yuk!!

The booking was very easy. It is a dog friendly hotel and worked out very well. Staff were very good to get us extra towels. The outside BBQ pit was clean and ready to use.

This hotel is right across the road from Glass Beach whcih was awesome.

The overall stay was very pleasant.

My husband, two small children, and mother stayed in a "suite" here on our way further south.

Pros: No lo-flow toilets or showers here, let alone placards preaching about reusing your towels. Clean enough. Will easily fulfill your nostalgia for 50's pink bathrooms or kitschy furniture.

Cons: Smelled awful - some nasty combo of cleaning chemicals and damp. Dark, dank, very cramped, and furnished with a combination of dated, garish, and banal items. "Continental breakfast" consisted of (inedible) packaged danishes *cut in half!* and (undrinkable) coffee the color of tea. Was not near brave enough to turn on the heaters. Pillow cases did not entirely cover the pillows, and bedding had old cigarette burns in it. They claimed to have ocean views, and I guess it might Technically be true, but only if you were on the exact right balcony and jumped real high: the beach is a good 1/2 mile away!
Would not consider this room a bargain at half the price!

Let me start by saying that we do not live in the lap of luxury at home. However....Took 5 minutes just to get the key to work in the door.Only worked the knob not the deadbolt. Holes in the walls ,stains on the ceiling. Grate to wall heater was absolutely filthy. Two outlets in the room . A fridge, microwave ,alarm clock and 2 table side lamps to share them. They strung a household extension cord behind the headboard that was jammed against the wall right behind the mattress and MY HEAD! The only way I could use the microwave was to place it on the bed so it would reach the extension cord. The alarm clock reached but I was afraid to leave it plugged in while I slept. Considered removing the extension cord completely but couldn't get it out from behind the headboard that was screwed to the wall. We didn't pay a lot for the room which is to be expected on a Feb. trip to the coast but come on!. The toilet literally rocked when you sat on it as if it wasn't adequately attached to the floor.The sheets appeared to be clean but my wife still slept fully clothed out of concern for what may have been lurking. Stay away from this place! Grab a sleeping bag and sleep on the beach. You'll be more comfortable!
Please don't judge Fort Bragg by this motel. The town, its coastline and its people are absolutely charming.

I'm used to staying in cheap motels like Motel 6 but the quality of this place was several notches lower. The king sized bed took up most of the room. There was old urine in the toilet that stunk when I lifted the lid. The old wall heater released a dingy smell when being used. The bed was hard. The continental breakfast consisted of individual pre-packaged snack containers that were cut in half, possibly to save on costs. My fault, because I was trying to save on money. Hotels in this area are pricey and I thought it would at least be Motel 6 quality.

In spite of all the bad reviews on trip advisor, Friends of mine who had stayed here in the past had recommended the Oceanside Motel, so I decided to stay while in town. Wasn't disappointed. Room was large, clean, everything worked. Large TV, refrigerator, and microwave were all amenities I was surprised to find for such a low price comparing others in the town. The walls must be sound proofed because we could not hear any noise from adjacent rooms (like you can in most hotels) even though the hotel was full every night. It is really great for a family on a budget, and I would happily stay there again.
