“Dog Friendly, Nice Motel”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We stayed here for 3 days, nice motel, room was nice, great for dogs, nice dog run, beautiful gardens. We adopted a rather large dog when we were in Fort Bragg the management was incredibly nice and the size of the dog was not an issue like at most hotels. Great price for Fort Bragg, near the beach and other attractions. We will definitely be back with our pooch, she had a great time too!!

We stayed at the Surf Motel many years ago, and remembered liking it. We only needed a motel for one night this time. The 1st thing I noticed was how welcoming and warm the attendant was who checked us in. Then how beautiful the garden-even though it's February. Our room was sparkling clean, and every thing it seemed we would need was here.Even a night light! Beautifully furnished, and the night's stay was so reasonably priced I couldn't believe it! It was very quiet during the night, even though the motel was close to being full! The bed had a cozy, soft pillow down topper--we slept sooooo soundly!! Thank you for a wonderful stay! We'll be back as often as we can!

This hotel has all the necessities-a great location,quiet,clean rooms and space to relax and feel at home. The hotel also provides a safe and easy location near an all-natural grocery store, great pizza restaurant and pub and a full continental breakfast for the whole family. The pricing is very competitive and the owners are constantly checking to make sure you are happy and comfortable. Going to Fort Bragg on the weekends is stress-free and easy going at this location. The nature around the area is beautiful and the town has some great local hang out spots that are super friendly and well-priced. I initially wanted to rent this hotel and trade in my city apt. for an upgrade. I would definitely recommend this hotel and book early for weekend events-a pretty nice find!

Room Tip: All rooms are one level so you don't have to worry about noisy upstairs neighbors!

My fiancé and I called this hotel for a last minute reservation on a spontaneous day trip turned into over night trip due to they were dog friendly. It turned out to be a great hotel with great service, a great location, and a great deal. We loved it so much we have gone back here to stay every time we come to fort bragg since! I would strongly recommend this hotel to any traveler.

What a nice place at a really reasonable price! I stayed 2 nights here and will definitely go back! Everyone was so nice and helpful. My room was very clean and organized to give you all the comforts. The grounds are nice and the location is excellent. Walk across the street and see a lot of deer and wonderful sunsets.
Highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Room 134 was great because you actually have a nice view of gardens and it gives you privacy too.

Wow! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! And so did our little dog!! The service was exceptional and friendly and our room was very clean!! (We liked how they aired all the empty rooms on the beautiful day. Fresh air is so important for cleanliness!) Our room was very comfortable and roomy and so clean!! They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and have lots of little extras like the enclosed dog run area, window cleaning stations for your car right outside your room, an outdoor fire pit, horseshoe game, and beautiful gardens throughout the property! We will definitely return to this place anytime we are in the area. We bought the hotel package that included two tickets to the Skunk Train. They even drove us to the Skunk Train and picked us up afterwards. We really enjoyed the train ride and so did our dog! It was an great experience!!

My husband and I and our puppy stayed one night here. The service was excellent. They offered a free continental breakfast in the morning, they are pet friendly but they go further than most hotels; they have a gated area for your pets to play and go to the bathroom in. I really loved that part. This is in a very good area of town. The pizza factory is in the shopping center right behind the hotel as well as harvest market. The room was nice, clean and affordable. I really enjoyed my stay and will come back if I am in the area.
