Great view and location! We had an amazing time on the rail bikes and Cafe one was yummy

Very nice older property. The staff was wonderful. We forgot some things when we checked out. They called us to let us know, and we arranged for our items to be mailed to us. They were very prompt and honest. I would definitely stay there again.

We loved the property and location. Staff was very friendly and helpful

Great location! We were able to walk the beach every day.

VERY CLEAN AND FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT. .................................................................................................................................................................

This hotel is paradise! A very special place! Lovely, intimate, a true sanctuary!

Clean, comfortable, great staff, updated fixtures in bathroom. They thought of all their guests needs....including a comfy bathrobe!

Great location! Directly outside our room was an ocean view and footpath to Galss Beach and town. Great service! We were greeted each morning by friendly staff at the complimentary breakfast. Great price! Can’t beat it with those views!

I just got home and already want to go back. I am so glad that I found this place. The place is beautiful and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I love the private balcony that we could walk right down and straight to the beach. I would definitely recommend this lodge to all family and friends and this will always be my choice when visit the area.

I "thought" I reserved a lower room with porch assess to the beach, King sized bed, standard shower/tub. No-smoking and No Pets. ( I printed up my reservation page) I have a bad knee and did NOT want to climb stairs with my bags or do up and down to the beach, or climb into a high walled Jacuzzi. When I got there I was "up graded" to upstairs, Jacuzzi/shower IN the BEDROOM (it had shower curtains and a VERY high step over the protruding granite edge), smoking room (it did not smell). This "upgrade" required climbing stairs and gymnastics to get a stiff knee over the HIGH tube edge.---At check in I went to the front desk about the problems and they said they were sold out and they could not do anything about it. BTW the Hot shower, steamed the room up. Other wise it was a nice place.

Hotel is in a beautiful coastal area we’d never heard of but are so glad we found it!

Was better than expected. Room was clean, modern and nice. Weird thing was the Jacuzzi tub in the midst if the room. Fireplace was a nice feature. Bed was comfortable. Continental breakfast at adjacent motel was inconvenient at best.

Separate buildings with only a few rooms in each is a nice touch. Right on the beach with wonderful views.

We came in late. Had wonderful reception. Clean room beautiful view. Very nicely set up. However lots of noise from Neighbors. Wanted to leave early in morning. No drop box for keys. Had to delay our departure

Ocean view and beach access were phenomenal. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We had a great time, the hotel is very quiet and super close to the beach. You can exit from your balcony to walk down the beach in only 200 yards for a stroll along the waves.

This was the 3rd hotel we stayed at during our honeymoon, the most expensive and least impressive. The staff was sub par, the television was small and hard to see, and this was the first hotel I had to put a deposit down, even though there was far more things of value at the other hotels. Tacky. Won't be going back to Fort Bragg or this motel/hotel.

A bit pricey, but pretty location. Unfortunately any time water was run in any other room, you could hear it quite loudly. The place needs to improve the insulation between rooms. On the very positive side, the staff was very gracious, helpful and provided excellent information.

My upstairs room was one of a four in an attractive two level building. I was happy I upgraded to the king bed/in-room jacuzzi room with a view, since the coastal view from the back balcony is very special. Housekeeping was excellent. The bed was supportive yet soft enough to allow for a restful sleep. The gas fireplace was appreciated while the cold fog settled over the town. The best thing was the location - close to state parks, the town of Mendocino, Noyo Harbor, and the Jackson Forest. And if you enjoy walking along the beachfront a walking trail is literally next to the hotel.

the hotel was just a 3 star, not BAD not GOOD the carpets REALLY needed cleaning and the hotel was MUCH farther to the beach than advertised. You had to walk thru a wet land of some distance to reach the ocean, there was a view of the ocean but NOT easy access for a handicap person to access the beach no microwave in the room, however, there was a refrigerator and a coffee pot

Thank you, Darienne, for your wonderful review! We're very happy that you "found" us and that you enjoyed your coastal getaway. Nothing beats watching the sun set over the ocean from your balcony! Great Pic! We hope that you will be able to plan another trip to the coast in the near future! The ocean is calling! :)

Thank you for your feedback. We strive to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay and your comments regarding the upgrade your received will help us to improve our guest services. We have forwarded your comments to our management team for further training with our front desk staff. We are happy to hear that, overall, you enjoyed your stay. As a side note, all 3 of our properties are completely non-smoking, so we hope that the previous guest did not decide to smoke in the room. For your next visit, please let us know that a downstairs room is required and we will make sure that you won't have to climb stairs to your room. Thank you, again, for staying with us.
