Very minimalist. Super loud fan in bathroom. (like SUPER LOUD). needs replacing. Housekeeping was shotty at best. Had enough amenities to make it a comfortable stay, staff polite and courteous. Room could be cleaned better. Found some stray hairs and dust.

Great place to bring your kids place to play outback in the garden area and cook food and barbecue and have an outside fire in the fire ring. Friendly staff. So many different flowers to look at. Very clean well-kept place. Definitely recommend to bring your family.

I have been a frequent visitor to Fort Bragg area for 8 years. I go for nature & hiking. Surf Motel is my #1 choice of places to stay there. If you are looking for safe, clean, quiet, great location, simple, I highly recommend Surf Motel. It has everything you need. It's not fancy, but it's great for the basics. Better than every other place I've stayed in Fort Bragg when Surf was fully booked. I have been hesitating to share this gem of a secret, but I promised the owner (GREAT GUY!!!) I would leave a comment this time. I have been a frequent customer and I look forward to my future stays. For value, safety, location, cleanliness, simplicity and great management this place is #1 in the area. I highly recommend.

The Surf Motel was a pretty typical motel. Nothing fancy. Importantly during this pandemic, the room seemed well cleaned. The young lady working the desk was super friendly and Ft. Bragg is a great place to stay for the night on a HWY 1 roadtrip.

As a RN I planned on taking my family to Glass Beach. We booked this motel based upon reviews. Of course I inspected the linens prior to sleeping and found what I suspect to be blood stains and urine stains on the bed. I inspected the toilet, shower, and bathroom. They also looked as if it hasn't been cleaned in a while. Urine was on the tips of the toilet seat, the shower had mildew in the corners. When I notified the front desk clerk about what I found, he didn't seemed alarmed or even upset at the findings which led to me think that this standard of cleanliness is their baseline. If you care about the concern of your family and exposure to germs more nefarious than COVID, I would greatly urge you to reconsider. I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and Public Health.
