Seabird Lodge - a Signature Inn
Ranked #11 of 23 Hotels in Fort Bragg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 6, 2013

This hotel has a little for everyone. It is located near the beach for the kids. It has a great heated pool. The hot tub is very relaxing. The staff is friendly and the hotel is pet friendly. For breakfast they have delicious homemade muffins. It is located near some outstanding restaurants. It has everything you need and great rates too. I would recommend the Seabird to everyone! Every time I need a hotel and I am near Fort Bragg, the Seabird Lodge is the first on my list.

Room Tip: Accidentally clicked restaurant. They don't have one, but there are many great ones close by.

Great value for a family. Located in Fort Bragg and across the street from the beach, this motel is a good value for a family, seniors and people with pets i.e. Fido not Fluffy.

Front desk lady is nice with charm. She assisted myself and an elderly gentleman with pet dogs who was staying for one week. Senior discount is $65.00 a night with a small fee for pets. I paid $83.00 including tax. This included two queen size beds with a small refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker in room, 10% discount at local chocolate store and fantastic continental breakfast of homemade muffins in six varieties individually wrapped, portable orange juice, yoplait yogart and delicious coffee with individual creamers and a small tray to bring items to our room.

There was a small balcony with sitting area and a little table to relax outside.

What an indoor pool. The kids swam and swam in the pool and relax in the hot tub which is the size of a small child's pool. By the time we had dinner, the kids were ready to fall sound asleep on their comfortable beds.


Round table within walking distance. And I never heard any of the dogs staying at the motel.

Hi! I had decided to plan a trip to Fort Bragg with my parents and brother. Now, let me tell you something. Any one who says this place is bad! Needs to look again because let me tell you I had so much fun at the pool with my family I decided this is the only place for us! The staff was funny and nice. But most of all... They have really good muffins that I would die for! Hope my review was helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bottom level. Easy access to the pool.

I stayed at this hotel in Jan 2013 for two nights with my family. The rooms are ok, kind of old fashioned but clean. People are very friendly. Not a great experience after all, but good value for the money.

Thanks for writing a review of the Seabird Lodge. And thanks for acknowledging the super job our housekeeping staff does. They are all great! Our fresh baked muffins are a hit wth guests--this morning we had chocolate/chocolate chip, orange cranberry and blueberry. For a solid value on the Mendocino Coast stay at the Seabird Lodge! Our upstairs west facing rooms have distant ocean views at no additional cost. They are on a "first come first serve" basis. Request when booking. 800-345-0022

We are traveling up the coast and needed a pet friendly hotel for the night. The woman at the desk, Karen, could not have been nicer. She was very welcoming to me and the dogs. The room itself was clean and basic, which is all that we required. There are muffins for breakfast. I highly recommend this motel.

Thank You! Thank You! I always like it when reviewers recognize our staff. The staff at the Seabird is indeed great--housekeeping, maintenance and desk staff. We have the friendliest staff at any inn on the Mendocino Coast!! Since I am the muffin man, let me tell you what kinds of muffins I made today: One of the favorites--Chocolate/chocolate chip. I also made Orange/cranberry. Another top favorite is blueberry -- but the Lemon poppyseed and Raspberry/white chocolate chip muffins are also near the top of the list. On occasion I make corn muffins with cheddar cheese and green onions-- a little different, but popular never the less. Next time you visit the coast please stay at the Seabird-- the place with the friendliest folks and friendly room rates, too.

Stayed here one night whilst travelling down the west coast in the summer. Rooms very "retro" and had a scent a bit like an old folks home but lady at desk very friendly, free internet and nice touches at simple breakfast like selection of homemade muffins. If you don't mind the style then it;s a nice place although a little out of town, plenty of parking along main street though.

Glad the reviewer had a nice trip down the coast. He seems, however, to have the Seabird and another inn scrambled together. We are in town, have plenty of parking, are not on Main Street, are not "retro"--but do have the friendliest staff and serve the best muffins around. We hope this reviewer and everyone else stays at the Seabird when visiting the Spectacular Mendocino Coast. See you soon!!!!

The 2 ladies at the front desk were excellent/friendly/super great. We stayed for 2 nights (my daughter & I) and the price was great and the hotel/room clean. They have a pool and spa which is inside. They don't have a full breakfast but what they do have it good -- homemade muffins & yogurt, juice, coffee and hot chocolate. The ladies there gave us day trip ideas and recommended a great restaurant in the area for dinner. Would stay again when in the area.

Room Tip: upstairs hwy 1 side to look out at the beach area
