Great value

Friendly front desk reception, clean and well-appointed room. The location is right off busy Highway 1, but did not hear the traffic. Came with a basic continental breakfast. Nice stay and would return if ever in the area again.

The Perfect Getaway!

My partner and I went to Fort Bragg for her birthday and Valentines Day. I happen to find The Emerald Dolphin while looking for hotels. Being a holiday weekend, most of the hotels were booked, but I got lucky and got to book two nights here for a reasonable price. The location was great, the beds are SO comfortable and the room cleanliness was great! We absolutely have no complaints and are looking forward to visiting this wonderful town in the near future. For those of you who love the red woods and the ocean, this is the perfect getaway! The Skunk Train is a must do!

Anniversary getaway

The hotel was in a convenient location and was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again if I couldn't find better accommodations in Fort Bragg.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Cabrillo Lighthouse it is a little bit of a walk but really worth it. Such a beautiful view and very interesting to read about. Be sure to go into the lighthouse gift shop and ask questions. They are always willing to answer your questions and it really is an exciting way to learn more then you can by reading the information cards under the pictures.

Good Stopover

Welcome could have been warmer, but no real complaint. Room and contents very good and comfortable. Breakfast disappointing and a "stand-up" affair unless taken to your room. Cheaper motels offered toast, bagels or waffles, as opposed only to small pastries, and provided tables and chairs. Probably the least good value of the motels we used this trip, but still a good stopover.

just what I was looking for

I was very pleased with the spaciousness of the room (2 queens). It also included a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, hairdryer and iron. Conveniently located to the beach, main street and moments away from Mendocino. I got really excited about the abundance of great, thick, thirsty towels in the bathroom which was very clean.
