          Not aware of smoking signs, because I gave it up 30 years ago. I naturally asking for non-smoking. Wasn't over enthused about the Surf Motel, but enjoy Fort Bragg. R

          I have never noticed, i generally stay there when i run up to go Abalone diving, so a fancier place is not really needed. The Surf is clean, not overly stuffy, fits my needs for a hit shower, ckean bed. and a nice rest stop.
