“Nice people great stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We enjoyed our stay here. It was not much to look at from the curb but the people that own it were so nice and welcoming. We had our choice of rooms i guess because we were early. We chose a room out in the cottage in the back. The breakfast in the morning was great as well.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are more private.

Stayed here twice on spur-of-the-moment trips while passing through Fort Bragg. The owners are THE NICEST people who serve up a great made-to-order breakfast as other reviews have mentioned. Both times there was a choice of waffles or eggs, plus sausage or bacon, fresh fruit salad, juice etc. The only thing that would add to an already terrific breakfast would be to have some background music in the dining room. It is a bit quiet in there. I haven't stayed in any rooms in front part of the main house, two in the back (one is behind the breakfast room next to the parking lot) are similar except the one in the small back house had a bigger bathroom and the fridge is in the bathroom (which is good if you are a light sleeper so the sound of the fridge cycling isn't bothersome.) There is a pretty good bath gel dispenser in the shower (I think it can be used as a shampoo but i didn't try it because I'm picky about my shampoo) plus small soap bars, if you don't care for that then i suggest you bring your own. Microwave and tea bags/instant cider/hot cocoa packets are available in the dining room at all times, it was nice to be able to heat up some water for a cup of tea at night. A short walk to the shops and restaurants on Main Street. Overall a quaint and comfortable place, it is like staying at someone's house who likes pastel floral decor and very traditional, simple furnishings. That is not my style but it somehow works in this setting.

If you want to be very close to the beach, on the edge of the mighty Redwood forest in a quaint little coastal town and you like a clean, comfortable accommodation with friendly, helpful hosts...this would be the place for you! Oh, yes and I they made the best blueberry pancakes I've ever tasted!
My wife and I stayed here 5 years ago and I was so glad to find Glass Beach Inn again this winter. Rich and Nancy are awesome and the B&B is just perfect. I would recommend giving yourself at least 3-4 days to see the area--we took the Skunk Train, toured the beach (quite dramatic, lots of seals frolicking about), enjoyed the cute shops in the town, and visited the more famous (more expensive) neighbouring town of Mendocino which is a few miles south of Fort Bragg.
We have no hesitation in recommending a getaway in this lovely area on the California coast and Glass Beach B&B inn is a perfect base for touring the area. Thank you Nancy & Rich for another great visit!

The room was nice but the attraction was the owners. Very helpful and friendly. It was one of my first stays in a B&B and I felt very welcome in their home. The location was great as well-close walk to Glass Beach.

We stayed for one night in one of the cottages which was clean and comfortable. Good value for what they provided. Next morning we had a super full breakfast cooked by the owner with eggs, toast, juice and hashbrowns. couldn't ask for more. We'll go back if just for the breakfast.

This was a last minute find for us at the end of August. We only stayed one night but would definitely come back if we could again. Nice size clean room with bath, friendly proprietors, excellent breakfast. Try it, you will like it.

Reviewed 24 July 2012

Glass Beach Inn allows you a taste of life living in boarding houses during the bygone days, complete with thrift store decor that could only be given away because no friends or family will take them. The place smelt of old houses or mildew and we had a hard time falling asleep.

The towels seem clean but with a shade of darkness - from continuous home laundry at low cycles?! The only amenities in the room were two small square soaps and mint. The inn provided an envelope each day for you to tip the housekeeper who seems to be the owner Nancy. By the way, don't go bare feet in the bathroom or you need to wash them again - not the floor, your feet. At a price at greater than $140, this is an expensive boarding house.

The only saving grace was the delicious breakfast. The cookies in the evening were hard as glasses. Hence, the name Glass Beach.

Room Tip: Breakfast is the only good thing.
