We stay here two to three times a year. The owner and staff are welcoming. The rooms are large, clean and pleasant. We always book a pet room. The room is always spotless. Would not know any pets previously stayed in our room... no pet hairs, no odor.

Continental breakfast

I stayed in the Fort Bragg area for almost two weeks for work and I tried this place once and only ONCE. I was tired after checking in late then I noticed in the morning that there were several dog or cat hairs on my pillow. Then I looked further and saw the bedspread was literal

Thank you for your review, as we depend on them to ensure customer satisfaction. We are so sorry to hear this was your experience as per our protocol in pet rooms everything is stripped from the room once the guest checks out and the room is vaccumed thoroughly before new linen is brought back in to the room.

We stayed 5 nights. The room gets a thumbs up from us. The grounds were very beautiful. So many great features, gazebos, fire pits, free breakfast, clean rooms also very good housekeeping service and so much more! Most importantly they allowed dogs 🐶
This included a dog run and

The Surf Motel and Garden's bathroom
Simply washed hands and sink wouldn't drain
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.

Are the rooms with full kitchens pet-friendly? And do they also have two queen beds? Planning a January trip.
We have never stayed in a room with full kitchen but I would guess if there is more than one room with a full kitchen at least one would be pet friendly. We have stayed in rooms with 2 queen beds that were pet friendly. By the way, the Pomo Bluffs on a stormy day are fabulous!!! (Either just sitting in the car or, going for a walk in the wild and woolly weather) Enjoy

my husband and i stayed in rm. #162 for unfortunately, 2 nights, over the 4th and 5th. the room was sooooo bad, that i feel bad for saying so. the beds ,(2 queen sz), were so completely soiled under the sheets, that it was without exoneration, scary!!! we do not believe that the bedding was even changed before we arrived. the floor was not vacuumed and there was 5 pieces of t.p. on the roll in the b-room. granted there was a "spare" roll on the back of the toilet. "THANKS FOR THAT"! ALMOST $400+ for the room that looked like a crime scene. wish we had some luminol and a black light. we looked for "bed bugs", and found a huge pool of a blood stain on the..."BOX SPRING",NO LESS. i have never , ever in my life, at 43 yrs old,, EVER! EVER, written any review of any kind. (genitive,or otherwise). that box spring is a crime scene. the blankets were slashed and the sheets were NOT CLEAN!!! did i mention, both my husband and myself have a few "hotels,motels" of our own??? at some point, you have to REPLACE, SOILED, 20yr., or more, ENTIRE BEDS AND SHEETS. BY LAW!!!! I WILL BE POSTING THIS EVERYWHERE! THANKS FOR THE GAZEBO. SINCERELY...DON'T GO HERE.
Since your stay here at the surf motel we are now under new management and with that we have started renovating as well as redecorating along with a good deep cleaning. we hope you will come visit again and see the improvements.

"Ask for pet rooms directly across from motel lobby. They have windows on two sides, making them brighter."
"Available with shower over tub or a shower with a seat; Fridge about 2 ft above the floor and a microwave over it or fridge on floor."
"Ask to see it first."
"South facing rooms are closer to the gazebo and fire pit areas, as well as the dog run."
"As far as possible from the highway naturally. That is the only real source of noise."
