Ocean View Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2013

This hotel made our stay very comfortable. The room was spacious, clean and with a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The spectacular sounds of the ocean along with the jacuzzi was relaxing as it gets. I will definitely visit your facility again. Your staff are very friendly and was helpful in providing us with information on the best restaurants and places to see in the area. My husband and I stayed even longer than we originally planned. Thank you Ocean View Lodge for a great experience.

Room Tip: all rooms face the ocean so I find this a great place to stay.....

This hotel is a bit older and dated, but the very CLEAN spotless room and balcony overlooking the ocean more than made up for it. Ask for the upper floor - the view is better and you don't have people walking by your room all the time. This is only about a 5 minute drive into Fort Bragg and about 20 minutes to Mendocino.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor - the views and privacy are better!

We compared this with B & B's in Mendocino and saved some money by going here without giving up on the view. In fact we got an even better view than comparable places (price wise) in Little River and Mendocino. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were on the first floor...saved $75 a night by doing so and the only reason for us to move upstairs next time was the continual stream of walkers along the pathway in front of your great view. The locals just walk on by and never look in...but the tourists stare straight through the picture window to see if your lodging is better than theirs. Do not book online. I get a much better deal by calling directly. Compare prices on the hotel's website and give them a call. At Ocean View Lodge we saved $40 per night by just giving them a call.

What a find! This motel sits at the north edge of town, and every room has an ocean view. Ours has a sitting room and a bedroom. The bedroom has huge windows with nothing between us and the ocean except for the Old Haul trail and some headlands full of wildflowers. Gorgeous! The bed is really comfortable. The room was clean when we arrived, and the maid left little fans and bows made out of towels, toilet paper and kleenex. It was a warm welcome. The man in the office was super helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Our room is quiet, and we can hear the ocean at night (or even better during the day with the door propped open!). The only problem we have is that the wifi hasn't worked for us, for some reason. They rebooted the router at our request, but still nothing. Other than that, though, it is just delightful!

Room Tip: If having people walk by the trail just outside the window bothers you, get a room on the second flo...

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!
