A very pleasant experience I would like other to have. A quaint, quiet, clean, elegant room, a nice view of the garden upfront, all within minutes of downtown locations and places of interest. Very reasonably priced compared to other major chains. A good find for me!

Room Tip: Rooms on the east wing are quieter.

First of all it should be called a relaxation resort rather than a motel. The rooms are spacious, well kept, and come with everything you need. There is a dog exercise area, as well as a huge hill right across the motel where you can take your dog to play with other dogs. There are a couple of garden areas that are just tranquil. Beautiful plants and shrubbery all around. The ocean is very near and can be seen from different parts at the motel. Karen, at the office was so courteous. She made me feel very welcome and at home. Harvest market right around the corner as well as a McDonalds (don't do it to yourself) near by. Would recommend to anyone. Can't wait for my next stay here. Simply the value is unbelievable.

Room Tip: Ask in the office.

For the past 50 years, whenever our house is rented, we have stayed at the Surf Motel&gardens. The owners are gracious&helpful, the site is pleasant, the accommodations clean,spacious, and comfortable, and the cost is one of the best bargains on the coast. The motel is central to everything, and the ocean is across the street for a nice morning stroll.
Whenever you visit the Mendocino Coast, this is a "must stay."

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent

We have been visiting Fort Bragg for several years, and have become regular customers of the Surf Motel. It's not fancy, but it is neat, CLEAN, generally pretty quiet, and you cannot beat the price. They even accept dogs, and provide a small dog park. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. It's also within walking distance of great restaurants and coastal access. You can't beat it.

Friendly staff, good continental breakfast, wonderful location for hiking in Russian Gulch, Van Damme and other forest parks. My only disappointment was that the walls between rooms were thin. Thank you very much.
