“Look! The Pacific!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is a clean hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. Your backyard is a 100 yards of wind-swept grass-covered dunes and beyond that the stunning Pacific. The beds are comfortable and the towels are clean. They get it all done right while you can easily stage runs and tours through the Humboldt Redwoods and the surrounding area. Come back to a clean room, research the next day's activities on the free WiFi, flip channels and fall asleep to the waves.

Easy stay for a family of 4 and very much worth it. Did I mention the views, walks and drives from the hotel are gorgeous?

My husband & I were looking for a destination on the coast to spend our 43rd anniversary. We have been in Fort Bragg in the past & I remembered the beautiful coast line. I started my search for a motel with something special to offer & I found the Ocean View Motel, made my reservations. From the first call to the reservation desk I knew the experience was going to be special. When we arrived the office was very clean, the young lady was very nice & our room was ready. The room was very clean, large but the view was SPECTAULAR. At that moment we made a promise to return every year to celebrate our valentine's anniversary.
The only suggestion we have is to be able to securely leave the patio door open at night.

I had a wonderful time. The staff were very helpful when I asked questions, about the eating places in the area and the activities in the area. The view was spectacular. I will difinitely be back, I will being my bike, and venture out a little more.

My wife and I loved this place and will return! We spoke with staff and recommend microwaves for the room my wife likes her morning coffee hot on chilly mornings while watching the ocean . The real suprise was how spacious the rooms were and the proximity to the beach thanks again .

We enjoyed our stay very much-------rooms are clean------ beds are comfortable------the location (about 150 yards from the beach edge) and the utterly unobstructed ocean view is the reason we keep coming back-------would appreciate more heat and another lamp in the room----but all in all it was a wonderful experience.

We almost didn't stay here because of the pictures of the outdated decor that we viewed online. The mauve carpet and the 80's bedspread almost kept us away. But - we knew the location was good because the weekend before we spent down the road at the Beachcomer. Well... we entered the room and were pleasantly surprised - yes the decor was a bit outdated, but the room was very clean and comfortable. AND - the view and the sound of the waves and the proximity to the water, wow, we will be back. We loved our stay, enjoyed the balcony on the ocean side of the room, enjoyed sitting in the jacuzzi and being able to peek over the bed and see the ocean from there. If only they would move the bed to the other side of the room, then the view of the ocean from the jacuzzi would be perfect. Is the decor outdated - yes. Is the property old - yes. But if the decor was updated and the bathrooms remodeled - they could charge at least double what they charge now... Do you come to the coast for the room? Not us .... but if they do decide to upgrade the property then double the cost of the stay ... I'll still be back - for the location.

When my husband and I checked in, the hotel clerk gave us instructions to just turn on the heater or turn off, don't try to set it. Also, flip the vent under the refrigerator so heat will come out of that. Well, heat never came on and vent under fridge did not work either, so we basically froze to death. On top of that the smell of fabreeze or whatever cleaning product that was used permeated the whole room. Had to open all doors and air the room out. When all was said and done, with tax, we paid $154.00 for a very poor room. We could not call the desk because it was after 10:00 PM by the time we figured out the heat was not working. Live and learn.

OceanViewLodge, Manager at Ocean View Lodge, responded to this review, January 31, 2013
We are very sorry for the problem with the heat in your room. Our manager is onsite and available for emergencies when our office is closed. We consider your heat not working an emergency and would have resolved the problem immediately if it had been brought to our attention. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and guests who are sensitive are welcome to request their room be cleaned without scented products.
