“Cockroach greeted us as we arrived...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

He was in the shower. I disposed of it and looked for more, but found only more filth under the toilet bowl rim. I could NOT find another vacancy in the area or I would have left.The only good thing about this place was the location(near Glass Beach). Luckily there is a liquor store next door. Manager spoke broken English and was no help with anything. Avoid!

I'm glad I didn't read the other reviews before we stayed here. True, the place shows its age, but we found it clean and serviceable. Before we checked in, the owner offered us a chance to see the room, and it looked good for the price. We came in in the evening, and planned to leave early, so the breakfast offering was not a consideration. The owner (if that's who he was--I didn't ask) was friendly and helpful.

If you're looking for luxurious accommodations and are willing to pay considerably more, you'd best go elsewhere, but if you seek a good night's sleep on a comfy bed, give this place a shot.

The location is good,just to the north of Fort Bragg,on Highway 1,and its within walking distance of the 'Glass Beach' .Upon first inspection the room appeared clean,but later my wife was walking about the room in bare feet when she noticed that the soles of her feet were Black she washed them and,walked again about the room and saw that they were again very dirty,an inspection of the carpet revealed that when rubbed with a tissue paper it was absolutely filthy.(what we thought to be a dark coloured carpet was in fact just dirt) . There were also dubious looking marks and stains on the inside door of the bathroom .The breakfast was terrible,individual size packets of Danish pastry's were cut in half,(the logic of which defies me as people just took both halves ) and my wife and several other guests ,attempted to spread the Jam ( from the small individual sachets ) and found that it was so old and out of date ,the jam had taken on the consistency of rubber!! ,(probably a cheap 'job lot' he had bought) All the guests were laughing about it,but it really its disgusting to provide such poor service,and expect people to put up with it. All the other guests we spoke to were disgusted with the service.

Room Tip: To get a better room ,the only thing to do is go to another hotel.

When checking in the owner gave the impression that he resented us being there to the point of coming across as bad tempered and surly although when his wife came out to speak to us she was very pleasant and polite. The room was adequate and clean enough although the TV had a loose connection and when I brushed up against the lead the TV would go off. When I went in for breakfast and said good morning to the owner he barley grunted. Breakfast consisted of toast, coffee and a danish that was cut in half. The jam that was provided was hard and not spreadable.It was OK for a stop over when passing through.

Overwhelming smell of dank mixed with stale cigarettes (we had a non smoking room). Cigarette burn on the bedroom chair. Stained towels, tiles missing from the counter, toilet had a sewer smell, fan did not work and was unnecessarily loud. The bath mat was grungy and obviously stolen from the Embassy Suites. The bathroom mirror was stained. Filthy carpet. The wallpaper was peeling and some sections were replaced with unmatched wallpaper. The floor was not level in places. Small children, drunks, or pets staying anywhere near your room will ensure you don't sleep. I don't think I had a worse night sleep in my life. Not worth your time or money. Trip Advisor should put a warning on this place. Heard rumors of bed bugs.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. Spend a few extra dollars and go to the Motel 6.
