“Wonderful Place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We love staying here. It is right on the ocean, but most importantly, the rooms are always clean. The rooms are very spacious, and the staff very helpful. Would highly reccomend it to anyone. If I would make any suggestion at all, it would just be to have a microwave in the rooms. Every room has an awesome view, and the hotel is nice and quiet. It is our favorite place to stay in Fort Bragg.

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms or double queen rooms are great for family trip. The upstairs rooms are wonderf...

Don't let the parking lot and entrance fool you...the view is amazing! We were there celebrating our 20 year anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place. We stayed in an upstairs king bed, fireplace with whirlpool jacuzzi tub room and we loved it. The room was very clean and I can't say enough about the view. We sat on our deck and watched the whales all day. If you like to take long walks along the oceanside this is your place!

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Ocean View Lodge three times now. I love this place. All rooms have a stellar view. The weather was pretty nasty when we were there, but we opted to sleep with the door open and the fireplace on, just to hear the ocean! The decor may be a little dated, but who cares? The rooms are super clean and the jacuzzi tubs offered in some rooms are almost big enough to swim laps in!! Conveniently located a short walk to a pretty private beach, and access to a great walking/running trail. The staff were all extremely friendly and more than helpful!! Just remember when it rains it brings out the ants!!! So do NOT leave any food out! Overall a very peaceful, quiet place to stay! Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Upper level, jacuzzi tub rooms!!

I really enjoyed my vacation at the Ocean View Lodge. The staff were wonderful, the views were outstanding, and the restaurants the staff recommended were excellent. There was plenty to do, but all I did was enjoy the Ocean, eat and sleep.

nice rooms. Our problem was we bought a box of donuts the night before and left the sealed box on the dresser. In the morning, I took a donut out of the box and took a bite. When I felt something crawling on my hand, I notice the donut was covered with ants. After spitting out a mouth full of ants, I checked the dresser and noticed the entire dresser top was also covered with ants. During check out, when asked about our stay, I told her about the ant problem. I was told sugar items attract ants and Fort Bragg was a large ant hill. When I mentioned it would have been nice to had been told about the ant problem and to not leave food items out, I was told only some of the rooms have an ant problem, not all rooms. Obviously, the employees knew there was an ant problem. We have been vacationing in Fort Bragg for 30 years and have never had this problem.

Thank you for taking the time to bring the issue with ants in your room to our attention. Being located on the beautiful Ten Mile Coastal Trail occaisionally during storms native wildlife will try to find food and shelter here. We have specialists who come to our premises to keep the wildlife in their natural enviornment. We will have them pay special attention to the room you stayed in. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Stayed two nights at the Ocean View Lodge in November just before Thanksgiving. Not only was the weather lovely, but so too were the staff and amenities provided. My girlfriend and I stayed in one of their king size rooms with a fireplace and whirlpool tub. The decore inside the room was at first a little, well, overwhelming, but the fireplace was a nice touch and kept us warm during the chilly North Coast nights. The front desk attendants were more than happy to help us in finding local attractions and overall I felt I got really good value for money. Keep in mind, this was a mid-week stay during the off-peak season, but regardless, I would have gladly paid a bit more to have stayed there again. Oh, and the views from the rooms are AMAZING!

Room Tip: Try booking a mid-week stay and save some cash.

This place is so spectacular, relaxing, and romanticI If you need a place to just unwind and recharge before returning to the hectic world, come stay here. The big picture window gives you the perfect view; open the balcony door, and you're right there, one with the ocean. Sight, smells, and sound. What a life! The accommodations are really great....huge rooms and nicely appointed. We like the king size with the sitting area and then the king size with the gas fireplace for winter. Very good prices in the off season (not summer or any holidays). This is our go-to place when life gets to you.....we really, really recommend the Ocean View. So much better than the nearby motels (and we have tried them before).

Room Tip: Downstairs are less expensive, but no less spectacular in view. Rooms with a sitting area are nice...
