“Great value for the money”
Reviewed September 17, 2006

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. The room isn't anything fancy and is a little outdated but a great price. Our room had a nice view of the ocean and was really clean. The room was actually pretty big in size with a love seat, table & chairs and king size bed.

We used one of their packages that had 2 breakfasts ($14 dollars off each day) and 1 dinner ($34 dollars off) that really helped and made it more affordable. For breakfast we went to Homestyle which was right across the parking lot and it was really good and we also went to the one by the skunk train depot which was also really good. For dinner we dinned at Silvers at the Wharf and it was really nice. They also gave us some truffles from the Mendacino Chocolate factory...Yummy!

Overall a great place for the value and wonderful customer service. We will stay there again.

The hotel itself isn't fancy. It's clean and comfortable. Nice pool, plenty of places to walk your dog/pet. What makes it above average is the dog friendly environment and the friendly staff. Very warm & accommadating. The office area is cozy.

Stayed here over a weekend with spouse on a package that included vouchers for 2 breakfasts ($14 for each breakfast for two) and 1 dinner ($34 for one dinner for two). Friendly front desk staff, clean large room that included a sofa and a king bed. Our balcony overlooked roof of indoor pool, so not worth sitting out there. Pool was warm and empty. Forgot our bathing suits but got 2 for a total of $35 in a souvenir shop in Mendocino.

On the package: definitely cut down our costs, but we had to add money of our own for each meal. Ate at Homestyle Cafe (in front of hotel)- good breakfast, the diner-type place for breakfast in the Skunk Train Depot- also good, and Silver's on the Wharf- expensive, but great views and seafood.

About that hum/air blowing noise some are experiencing in the rooms. I heard it while lying awake, froze in fear, and tried to figure it out. I am a scientist and after investigation have found it to be....... the mini-fridge! It makes the (quiet) noise while cycling on and off- not a big deal once you know what it is.

This motel is nothing fancy or new but it was a real comfortable accomodation at a fair price. The room was extremely clean. The management was very friendly and seemed like they really wanted to please. The motel was only two or three blocks away from the river and fisherman's wharf area. Overall, we has a very nice time here.

As written by posters recently, this place is a little dated, but, compared to the Best Value inn in Crescent City, this place is a palace. Again, no air conditioning (must be an America's Best Value tradition), but, thankfully, we really didn't need it. Excellent view of the Chevron gas station and a glimpse of the ocean if you have a west facing room.

On the plus side, the room was clean and of ample size. We would probably stay here again should we find ourselves in Fort Bragg. Value is average, if a little overpriced.

Another poster mentioned something about a hum. There is a distinct sound that keeps going off intermittently. It's as though someone is blowing on an emtpy beer bottle every few seconds. Weird. Kind of sounds like an owl or mourning dove. Haven't been able to figure out what it is. I'm hopeful that we won't be able to hear it once we close the window.

There seem to be many choices of lodging in Fort Bragg. None too fancy, but if you're looking for a reasonable value, this might be the place. Now, if I could just figure out what that weird sound is...

Chose this hotel mainly because it was pet-friendly. Arrived to find two little dogs sitting on pillows in the front lobby. Check in people were very nice and friendly. Our room faced Hiway 1 (the main throughfare) and so could hear traffic thru the evening but fortunately did not bother our sleeping. The room was very clean and neat, but fixtures -- lamps, bed -- were definitely dated. Separate bathroom basin and toilet/shower...toilet/shower looked newly updated and was very clean. There was a microwave, refrigerator, but NO hair dryer. In today's era, I do expect one...but I didn't inquire at the front desk about whether they had one available. We were in a room (#121) that had an annoying hum all night long. We were fairly close to the indoor pool room, so we are guessing that was the pool ventilator fan running. Also, when people were moving around outside, or slamming doors, it was very noisy. Thin walls.

Have to mention we had an EXCELLENT breakfast at the Homestyle Cafe, which is right in front of the motel. Everything was well-prepared with no over-abundance of grease as seems to be the case in a lot of breakfast cafes. Tasted great! Highly recommend for breakfast.

Also had dinner at the Cliff House just down the road. Food was good; nice view of ocean/river inlet, but it was also dated furnishings.

The staff is very friendly and professional. All our needs, were taken care of with a smile. All our questions were answered, with recommendations and advice. All directions were given and shown on a map. SEABIRD LODGE is in a very convenient location. The grounds are clean, and there is ample parking. The reception area is very clean and relaxing, with lot's of maps and guides. The pool and area is very nice and clean. The room we had was spacious, and very clean. Return trips will be to the "SEABIRD LODGE". I highy recommend this Inn !
