“great place”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

this was a great place to stay. the rooms were clean, comfortable, and the view was great. The staff was there for us when ever we needed anything, right down to where to get the freshest seafood. for our anniversary the gave us a bottle of champagne and chocolates. I would recommend anyone to stay here. and we will be back

Room Tip: the view is great from the second floor rooms.

Thank you for your 5/5 review, Lady DQ! It's wonderful to hear how much your loved your stay. And you are definitely right about endless hours of beach fun; with the longer summer days, our guests can enjoy the beach sun until almost 8pm! We look forward to your next visit with us!

We enjoyed our stay, even though we actually left early because of the weather. We had a nice kitchenette unit that allowed our dog to stay with us. Many of the guests had four legs, but were mostly well-behaved. You can walk to the beach near Pudding Creek over the headland from the motel, and there is a lovely beachfront path to walk/run. It's a bit of a trek to town/restaurants. Would be nice if they had food onsite, but I understand that it may be a bit of a struggle to keep a cafe/restaurant open at that location.

Thank you zimagirl, for taking the time to give us such a great review! I'm so glad that you and your dog enjoyed your stay. You are right about our location as we are in a tranquil spot slightly north of town. This, as you said, gives us closer ocean access than you could get in town and more uninterrupted views. Walking downtown is a bit of a longer stroll, but driving there takes barely two minutes. I hope you and your four-legged friend will come visit us again soon!

My husband and I have stayed here on several occasions and always enjoy the location and the rooms. The walking trail just outside is a good reason to get outside and enjoy the view. The staff was terrific, even when we had a bit of a problem at check-in, due to an employee telling us a few months ago that we had a free night coming, which turned out to be not so. You really can't stay upset in a place like this, with staff that was trying to make us comfortable, so we just moved on and had a great stay. It's turning into our "home away from home".

Room Tip: If people right outside your room on the walking/biking trail will bother you, ask for an upper room...

We spent one night here on a recent trip to California. The motel is older, but well maintained. The room had a nice view of the ocean, and was located near tressel bridge walking area. The managers were very nice, and checkin was easy. The only negative was the ice maker was very dirty - so we didn't use ice. The room was clean, and they had some extra amenities in the room. Location was close to downtown Ft Bragg, right on HWY 1

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean front views....some have more amenities, ours was a two queen room no kitchette...

I checked into my upper level queen room yesterday afternoon and I am blown away by the beauty of this property. The staff was so friendly upon check-in and the atmosphere here is so inviting. My room is very nice and has a breathtaking view of the ocean. Just yards from my room are hiking/biking trails that follow the coast line, as well as a huge sandy beach. I will definitely be taking advantage of those during my stay here. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Fort Bragg. I will most certainly be back!

The Beachcomber Motel has the best location in Fort Bragg. The rooms all have full ocean views, and the lower floor rooms all have access to the beach trail and bike trail right from the patio. The price for this location is fantastic. We almost booked the sister hotel "Surf and Sand", but after staying at the Beachcomber, I think they win on view and location. We had slider doors that opened to a patio with low rock wall you can step right over and be right on the trails. There were patio chairs out there for each room. We loved our room and the lobby had free snacks, hot cocoa, yogurt, etc. Our kids loved making their hot cocoa with the different flavoring mixes.
The staff was very welcoming and attentive to our questions. The only reason I can't give this motel a 5 star review is the WiFi. It never worked for us the whole time we were there. It was so slow that nothing could be uploaded. So if you need the internet for work, make sure this issue has been fixed before booking this motel. The other issue I had with our room was the cleanliness. We needed to keep our slider door open (which was great to hear the ocean waves!) because it was so stuffy. Maybe they need to replace the carpet or get it deep cleaned. The patio chairs were covered in dirt and bird droppings, so I had to clean them thoroughly before we could sit on them. The shower water pressure was just ok. We also would have liked to have a door latch in addition to the lock on our room. One thing I noticed right away on check in was the front desk had a chair that was all ripped up on the seat. The hotel roadside sign didn't really fit the place, and looks cheap. It wasn't a great first impression for such a cute place, so maybe the lobby needs a little sprucing up. But the motel itself is a very nice style and color. I would stay here again! Amazing views of the ocean and perfect location for walks to the beach and bluffs!

Room Tip: We prefer the lower floor because you can walk right out your patio doors to the trails. It is wond...

Thank you MissLaineyBug for your great and thorough review! I'm so glad that you and your family enjoyed our location and ocean access. There really is nothing quite like having the Pacific Ocean just out your back door!
As for the wi-fi, the trouble that you are referring to was just a temporary issue. Something went wrong on the hardware end of things but our internet service provider was able to come out very quickly and fix it and I'm am happy to say that it is back up and going strong!
We look forward to your next stay with us!
