“Repeat visit - best views and good service. Clean rooms.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We've stayed several places in fort Bragg and Mendocino as it is our annual anniversary trip. We always seem to come back to our old faithful oven view lodge. It is pricey but the view can't be beat and the rooms are clean...this comment coming from a true germaphobe. The decor is a bit outdated but still the view and cleanliness and service makes up for that. Can't wait for our next trip to oven view lodge. Where else can you open the back door and fall asleep to the waves crashing 300 ft from your bed?

BTW the best place to eat is the cliff house and the best item on the menu is the Salmon Oscar. I will dream of it all year until next time :)

Learn from our experience and cut to the chase by staying at the ocean view lodge and eating at the cliff house.

The room was good and clean and What at view!!! The only thing I would suggest is to get an upstairs room because the noise from the bed and jacuzzi makes it hard to sleep. Otherwise this is an excellent place to stay. And the view, like I said, WOW!!!

This was our fifth stay at Ocean View Lodge. I didn't think that our past visits could be topped in excellence, but they managed to find a way. The peace and quiet of the lodge is wonderful, the view to the ocean breathtaking, and our room was luxurious as always. The staff was knowledgable, helpful, and efficient. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: All the room are wonderful. The only differences are the fire places and whirlpools, which are only...

My sister booked two nights in Fort Bragg for us to celebrate our fathers birthday, and I was concerned. First, I normally stay in Mendocino when I am in this area, at one of the more quaint inns, and I had never heard of this place. However, i was pleasantly surprised for a couple of reasons. First, the location was excellent. All the rooms overlook the bluffs along the ocean. Secondly, the rooms are clean. Very clean. Also, the area was quiet, and the location was fine for exploring the area.

In the morning, you can take a pleasant walk along the cliffs, walk across the pedestrian bridge, follow the meandering trails, and just enjoy the scenery. All the rooms have balconies, which was ideal for hanging out with our father, who is not very mobile.

All in all, I would recommend this place for travelling families and groups, but I would still go to Mendocino for a romantic get-a-way....
