Every room has a balcony overlooking the ocean. We had the whirlpool tub, with fireplace, also overlooking the ocean. The only drawback is the faint fog horn sound, in the distance, every 30 seconds or so. Ur didn't interrupt my sleep though and the hotel does provide ear plugs is you are a super light sleeper. Breakfast was just ok,... More

Second times we've stayed here. Highly recommend this place. Love the tub that overlooks the ocean. Love the sound of the waves breaking against the nearby cliffs. Staff helpful and friendly. Make sure you and your guest can climb steps or stay on bottom floor, no elevators at this hotel.

Folks, not long ago I needed to be in Fort Bragg for a meeting, and was lucky to snag a room here. What luck. Nevermind the gorgeous setting on the ocean, the lovely accomodations themselves...the people both at late night check-in and their ample breakfast service next morning...they were all most welcoming. And remember that long late night drive of... More

Although the bed at this hotel was excellent, I can't really agree with the descriptions provided on the website. The toughest part was that the rooms with the nice views of the harbor are on the third floor...and there is no elevator. Travelers with luggage must lug them up 3 flights of stairs! Breakfast in the morning was nice and... More

The hotel is perfect for a weekend break. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.
