“Favorite on the North Coast & Family Friendly”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

We stay at this hotel whenever we travel through the North Coast. The view, cleanliness and price for the Mendocino / Ft. Bragg area are unbeatable. My husband, who is from Fiji, even loves how amazing the views are from these rooms. On this trip we were celebrating my sons 1st birthday by taking him on a family trip up the coast. The person at the front desk was wonderful, letting us hang out while waiting for our room to be cleaned and suggesting the best restaurants with the shortest waits. To be fair, we have only stayed in the king rooms on the first floor, so I cannot speak to the policy of the other rooms, but we did not have any issue with taking my 1 year old to this hotel, either when making reservations or upon arrival. The entire room was exceptionally clean and was safe for my son. We will continue to stay here every time we are in the area.

Came to Fort Bragg for the day. Decided on a wim to spend the night. I called the Ocean View Lodge and was told they had rooms, but would not rent them to us because we had a two year old. I was confused and told her I didn't mind paying more for the room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub...we just wanted to sleep. She said, no children were allowed in those rooms. Wow! So let me get this straight...you would rather the room be empty than rent to parents? She was just plain rude! I wish I had read all the reviews before I called it seems their customer service is seriously lacking! Don't be fooled...read all the reviews....

Room Tip: Go next door to the Beachcomber!!!

We stayed only one night, but would definately return to this property if traveling in the same area on a future trip. We chose The Ocean View for that reason, the ocean view! The sound of the waves rolling in was amazing and the wonderful salty smell was just what we hoped for. The room was large, very clean (room and bedding) and had a good sized fridge for cold drinks etc. We walked along the pathway that runs in front of the property and also along a good stretch of beach. The Ocean View is perfectly situated for walking and exploring the beautiful unspoiled beaches.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main level, but the rooms above would have an even better view. Next time!

Our brief stay at Ocean View Lodge was very pleasant and ranged from the quality of the room to convenient parking to a superb ocean view from the room. The manager provided excellent restaurant recommendations and helpful directions assistance for local attractions. The walking/jogging path right in front of the hotel rooms and facing the ocean is particularly attractive. This lodge is definitely a nice choice for stays in or near Ft. Bragg. If time permits, nearby McKerricher State ParK (main entrance) is a must visit.

The room was clean and had an amazing view. We have stayed at other comparably priced properties and felt this was "nothing special". We will probably not stay here again. Just average. We expected more for the price.

My wife and I recently stayed here as part of a romantic excursion of the California coast line. After reviewing many comments about the various hotels, we made our reservation at the Ocean View Lodge and we were not disappointed. The location was excellent! The hotel is located right on the Pacific Coast with plenty of walking trails as well as beach access for a walk on the beach. The staff was very friendly and professional from making our reservation to greeting us at our arrival. Our room was on the end of Building Two on the first floor. It was a spacious room with a sitting area and a large bedroom. The room was very clean. The furnishings were very nice and the bed was divine. We had a large picture window which looked out on to the beach and a very nice deck. After walking on the beach, my wife and I sipped a some wine as we watched a beautiful west coast sunset. The whole experience was superb. We totally recommend the Ocean View Lodge due to their location, staff and reasonable cost.

Room Tip: A room on the first floor is just as good as one on the second floor. You have a great view wherever...

Considering it was only one night - but a special night we really were glad we chose this hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was quite spacious. We really didn't use the little living area in front - and appreciated the little night light to help you find the bathroom in the dark. The sliders to the magnificent ocean view were amazing. And the beach access was quite literally outside your room doors. There is a long walking path -- and you just need to be careful about your privacy as people are definitely using the path! I like that you could buy a coffee mug to commemorate your trip. It was a really sweet hotel and we would definitely go back!

Room Tip: We were in a room at the end by the office - it was very peaceful indeed.
