Stuart, Florida
Reviewed 23 September 2015

We were driving up from Yosemite and decided to stay in Fort Bragg. The Front desk was so helpful, giving us an estimate of drive time and warning us that the last part of the drive on 20 was winding- Very with lots of steep grades not for the faint hearted! The room was very comfortable and clean. Great shower...

Thank you for your great review, Lanne428! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! You are right, the ocean breeze keeps your room cool throughout the day and the crashing waves lull you to sleep at night! I will pass your compliments on to our Front Desk staff! We hope to welcome you back on your next...

The surf and sand lodge had great reviews on trip advisor and we made reservations last minute. There was only one room available - a single queen bed with no ocean view. My review is for the room not the lodge itself because the other rooms may be nice. They were larger on the floor plan we were given for...

Thank you for your review, JoanT84! I suggest booking one of our king suites on your next visit to the coast. This room has more floor space and beautiful ocean views! Some even offer Jacuzzi tubs! We hope to welcome you back another time! Alex Guest Relations Manager

We arrived in the early evening and got the last available room with a queen sized bed. Since we are used to a larger bed, it was a stretch for us, but we were tired and the price was right. The studio room had a small refrigerator, microwave and a table and 2 chairs and a coffee maker. For a...

No mold detected, so our visit to the doctor was good. They're a little uptight about no smoke, candles or incense. $500 fine if any evidence of these is found. I thought that was a little bit over the top.

Thank you for your review, Erthwkr! I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us! Our whole property is a non-smoking property, unfortunately this includes candles and incense. Not only is this to protect from any fire hazards but some guests are sensitive to smoke and scents as well. The safety and security of our guests is our number one...

My daughter and I have been visiting this hotel for the past 10 years over Labor Day weekend. It has been remodled in the past few years. Even though it is close to the highway it is quiet. We have an ocean view and access to the beach from the balcony. There is one unit that allows pets and we...

Paid up for the "room with a view". Not sure it was worth it, we weren't in room much. Overall, it felt a bit steep to pay $200+ for a hotel room. Would go back, but would investigate other choices too.

My wife and I drove up here from Sacramento for a nice 2 day getaway. We couldn't have picked a better place. Rooms were super clean and modern. Access to the ocean was as easy as opening the sliding back door and walking a few hundred feet. It is located away from downtown so it's very quiet. Speaking of downtown,...

Thank you, Paul L, for your great review! I am so glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay! You are right, the coastal trail has several off path trails that will lead you to more secluded sections of the beach! This trail also takes you South to Glass Beach or North to MacKerricher State Park! We look forward to...

We spent 2 nights at this hotel so be close to Glass Beach. We had a nice stay and do not have any complaints about the rooms or staff. It felt moreso like a condo. We really enjoyed a hiking trail along the headlands with the dramatic scenery. You can easily walk down to the beach and see star fish...

We spent two nights at this hotel, which is nicely situation just on the edge of town, so you are out of the hustle and bustle. It's on the beach, with an incredible path crossing over trestle to lead you to Glass Beach, which we were enamored with. The staff was friendly and helpful. This review would be a five...

I enjoyed my stay at SS. Friendly, professional staff, hotel is on the beach side of Hwy 1. Nice trail along the headlands, and beach access. The only problem is the hwy noise. Perhaps the unit I'm in, Dolphin, rm 604, is closer to the road than some of the others. Bring earplugs, and stay upstairs (no elevator) for a...
