“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Location, scenic, good staff, very nice size rooms and amenities,and value for the money.
In traveling down the West Coast this was the nicest facility we stay at and it was topped off by a very nice breakfast spread.
Only one minor glitch: I made our reservations, for 2 rooms, almost three months in advance and we did not have adjoining rooms and one suite had handicap facilities.As they were sold out they were not in a position to make adjustments.

Room Tip: Great view, small deck, fireplace, very clean

I'm so glad to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay and that you feel we were the nicest place on your trip!

Unfortunately, we do not have any adjoining rooms. It is something we are considering doing in the future, so definitely ask us about that next time you stay with us.

I hope to see you again on your next visit to the coast!

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the North Cliff Hotel! Our room was amazing! The bed was sooooo comfortable and of course you can't beat the view it has! They also offer the most amazing military discount!!! I've never seen a company so generous with their discount to military families! We will most definitely be back!!!

The hotel is located with ocean views. It is also convenient to restaurants, groceries, gas station, etc. There are plenty of sights along the coast and in town. The staff was very friendly and offered advice on local eateries and sights. The room was clean and comfortable. Good amenities. We don't have any negatives.

We chose this hotel not knowing what to expect but it exceeded our expectations. The room was large and comfortable. It was well furnished with very nice furniture, two double beds, a sitting area in front of a fireplace overlooking the harbor. There was a larger tv mounted on the wall than you normally find in most hotel rooms. There was a refrigerator, microwave and large shower. The room also had extra pillows, blankets, two robes and a fan if needed. There was a nice balcony to sit on and watch the sunset and boats coming and going from the harbor. We were very impressed. The staff was very friendly. Our only disappoinment was that we were not allowed to spend an extra night like we wanted.

Our room on the 2nd floor gave us a wide view of the Noyo Harbor entrance with many boats: The fog horn and early morning fog added to the overall ambience and made our stay all the more enjoyable. Would stay here again and again. Adjacent highway was not a concern except we walked down the hill from the hotel, under the bridge, strolled through the harbor and climbed up the stairs on the opposite side of the highway back to the hotel. Touch and go to cross the highway back to the hotel. Entrance to property a bit confusing by car and walking. A good choice and highly recommend North Cliff.

Yes, this place has an inlet view of the ocean.
Yes, this hotel is well maintained and feels pretty updated.
And Yes, it's also practically touching Hwy 1 with the noises that comes with zipping traffic (see pics)
And Yes, the fog horn does go off every 30 seconds!
If you keep the sliding window closed, you'll minimize the above 2, but it'll also get very hot on the top floor. It was cool out, so it must be the heat from the other floors raising. No AC here to counter the heat, so it's a catch 22! We boiled and kept the window/door shut!

Thank you very much for your review. I appreciate your valuable feedback. We were remodeled in March of this year and all rooms have new carpet and all new furnishings. I'm glad that you liked the updates we've made and the ocean and harbor view.

Being right on the edge of the Pacific, properties in this area generally don't have a need for air conditioning. It has been quite warm recently! We do provide a box fan which when placed at the sliding glass door cools the room down immediately with the ocean breeze.

I hope to see you again sometime soon.

For my wife's birthday she wanted to go to Fort Bragg and so I made reservations at the North Cliff Hotel. Upon checking in the lady checking us in wished her a Happy Birthday. She then completed the check in and directed us to our room. Upon entering our room there was a Birthday card from the staff of the hotel wishing my wife a Happy birthday. They also had a nice cold bottle of Champagne for her Birthday waiting for us. Our room had a great view of the entrance to the harbor so we could see all the fishing boats going in and out of the harbor. The jacuzzi was awesome as we sat in the jacuzzi watching the sun set and the boats while sipping the champagne. It was great of the staff of the North Cliff Hotel to present my wife with this and we both are truly thankful to them. They made it a very wonderful experience for her.

We have stayed here in the past we will be staying there again. I know my wife wants to return to the Fort Bragg area in September and I can guarantee we will be staying there again.

Room Tip: You must get one of the rooms with the jacuzzi. And if you want an even quieter and romantic stay as...
