The Beachcomber Motel and Spa on the Beach
Ranked #3 of 23 Hotels in Fort Bragg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 June 2010

We booked this hotel because of a friends experience. I must say that it ranked about a 7.5 out of 10 with us. The staff at the hotel was a little inexperienced. The yound lady at the front desk did not make a good impression on us. The rooms were ok, however the bathrooms are so SMALL. We paid 150 dollars a night for this room, at this price I think there are better hotels in fort bragg.

We stumbled on this palce and could not believe our luck, right next to a lovely enclosed beach cove, spectaular views and despite the road on the front side we heard no noise and slept with our sliding door open to the sounds of the surf. Staff efficient, knowledgable about local restaurants and discreet. Mattresses excellent, rooms large and we had a balcony!Great value for $119.

A fantastic option for families with young children. My boys 4 and 2 spent hours playing on the back deck that stretches along the back of the motel. While my 8mo. old slept, they freely ran in and out of our sliding back door and were reasonably sheltered and within reach while feeling free to play. Our room was a few steps from a super fantastic kid friendly beach and along a great walking path leading across the trussel bridge and gorgeous trails on the bluffs. My kids gathered flowers and beetles along these trails and really felt like they were in heaven. I liked the fact they were able to feel like they were out in the wild while I didn't. Plus homebase was right there for when snacks, clean up and naps were needed. The kitchen was a major factor in our wonderful experience and a must have for relaxing with little kids in tow. NO packing up to go somewhere... we were able to have a wonderful time right there and short walks kept us plenty busy. We will be returning but will bring our bikes next time since the trail leads to town and glass beach but was a little too far for us to walk. Other reviews said the road noise was a problem... we only heard it when we had our front windows open and even then it wasn't an issue for us. The room was very clean and the staff super friendly but non-intrusive. I'm planning on returning and bringing the grandparents to stay in the queen room next door! Thumbs up from all of us here!

We stay at the Beachcomber a couple times each summer. They have comfortable beds, clean (recently remodeled) rooms, and friendly staff. We love the 24/7 hot coccoa and coffee in the lobby! There is a wonderful walking path or bike trail available, beach access within steps of your room, and convenient BBQ area with lots of tables and chairs. Great place to stay if you have little ones. We even take our dog! Early in the AM you can explore the tide pools and rocks while the tide is out. So much fun, and reasonable prices!

*This is not a restaurant. No idea why it is listed under restaurants.

The Beachcomber is very centrally located, has clean rooms, and has very nice comfy beds. Usually I do not sleep well away from home. At the Beachcomber I did not have that problem. When we arrived the office staff was friendly and check in was easy. I would highly recommend the beachcomber to all. Thanks!

Perfect location overlooking the beach. The room was very clean, modern, and smelled fresh. The bathroom was tiny but served it's purpose. We didn't hear anyone else while we were in the room. Very quiet, safe and peaceful place to stay!

....As you are driving the beautiful stretch of Highway 1,....one can't help but anticipate the stay at the Beachcomber, Fort Bragg! It starts with the kind hospitality of the staff as you are checking in,...the coziness of the lobby with their complimentary coffee and a nice fire in the fireplace to the beautiful rooms which is right along a path over-looking the ocean! there are wild flowers growing everywhere. The front desk let us know of all the great resturantes in town and made us feel so at home! We will be back and it was definately a 10 OUT OF A 10!!!
