“What a nice surprise!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

We won a gift certificate to this wonderful place and had no idea it was so nice. The rooms are lovely, marbles vanities and shower, bed was so comfy, room was spotless! The staff was very attentive, and the patio overlooked the bluffs where we could hear the waves crashing. A terrific find and we will be going back!

Room Tip: Be sure to have a patio! The view is spectacular!

We stopped here on a whim, deciding we were too tired to keep driving north. Within 15 mintues of being in our room, we decided to book an extra night. It was that nice. We had an oceanfront room with a balcony and although cold weather kept us inside too much, we could still hear the wonderful sound ot the surf all night long. The room was ultra clean and the beds very comfortable. The location is ideal, just far enough from town to be quiet yet within a mile or 2 of a wide selection of restaurants and a grocery store. Compared to any other hotel we saw around town, we definitely felt lucky to have found this place. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The oceanfront building was cheaper than the back building, probably because it didn't have an i...

This was my 2nd stay at Surf and Sand and I loved it both times. Of course the refurbished room was fantastic; everything was so new and fresh. I'll definitely be going back again, probably in the fall. I would like to add, also, that the staff is/was very friendly and helpful. It's a perfect place to be at Ft Bragg.

This establishment was just taken over by it's neighbor--Beachcomber-- same owner same amenities , Newly Refurbished..Good sized room and set up.Right on ocean.Walk out your front sliding door and there it is. Even the first floor's view is good..minor annoyance --- this is a major "walk way" for walkers, runners and bikes so a little infringement on your privacy, but tolerable. Because of the ocean, you do not hear them..would stay here and the Beachcomber again.

Nice large rooms with patios on the oceanfront. The 10 mile trail along the bluffs is right outside the back door. Dog friendly facility. They have a deal with the spa in the hotel next door, to give discounts. Even though the bluffs are between you and the ocean, it feels like you are right on top of it.

Room Tip: always pick ocean view

I do not know where to start... The view from our room is panoramic and unobstructed. We brought our puppy he just loved it! The bed is deliciously comfortable. The most outstanding kudos goes to housekeeping! The room is spotless and with special touches such as towel and tp art!!! Lol thank you all for a wonderful stay!

Enjoyed spending our 9 year anniversary at The Surf and Sand in Fort Bragg! Initially tried to book at the Beachcomber, but no ocean view upstairs rooms were available... The helpful gentleman referred me to their sister property next door. He described the accomodations perfectly and we were not disappointed. The deep in room Jacuzzi tub was incredible and the view was spectacular! The room, although a bit dated in decor, was immaculate and comfortable and the bed was super comfy and cozy. I understand that the rooms will be updated in the near future and we will be back to enjoy them... For sure!
