We stayed one night at the Surf Motel & Gardens in Fort Bragg, CA. The motel is one story and the rooms have comfortable beds, small refrigerators & microwaves, plus powerful little built in hair dryers!. Plus all channel cable tv and free internet access in the lobby. A small continental breakfast of pastry, fresh fruit, orange drink and coffee is served. If you are still hungry, Macdonald's is a one minute walk on the same side of the street. It was quiet at night, even though a tour bus had come in, we didn't hear a sound. We watched the Giants baseball game in the comfort of our spacious room which also had a table and two chairs. The staff was warm and friendly. Amanda & Karen are so nice! I high recommend this motel. It is also a 5 minute drive from the Skunk train and they have a free Skunk Train shuttle at the motel too. One other plus is a shopping center on the same side of the street in the other direction. The Harvest Market is a beautiful market. It is like a department store and the most beautful one I've seen since Whole Foods. All in all the Surf Motel & Gardens is a real winner!. Rates were reasonable. Our room with Queen bed cost around $87 which included the AAA discount! They even have a built in wonderful dog run for man's best friend!

Our brother and sister-in -law joined us for a Holiday getaway. We brought our bikes so we could get around the town and enjoy the execise. The stay at the Surf was really nice. I enjoy the beautiful flowers that surround the Motel. the close walk to stores and eating places. The town was having a Labor Day celebration, so that made it nice to have a few extra things to do and see. This was my first time staying at this Motel. I liked it and would gladly stay here again.

Just the right price for a clean and nice room. We really liked the gardens outside. It's also conveniently located. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and it's not far from Mendocino.

My son and I have stayed at this hotel previously. We had a new puppy, so we enjoy that they accept pets. Beautiful gardens and always a good time. We do a craft show in town over the Labor Day weekend and always have a great stay with this hotel.
