“great luxury with a view that's out of this world”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

My husband and I go to Fort Bragg once or twice a month and the last time we traveled there our inn that we usually stay at was full and we neglected to make a reservation. So we decided to give Ocean View Lodge a try and so glad we did. The front desk employees were very friendly and courteous and the rooms are awesome! The enormous windows give you a view that is remarkable from sunlight to sunset. This is definitely a 5 star quality lodge. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious and clean with all the amenities you'll need along with free WiFi. There is access to a bike and walk trail that stretches for miles along the coast as well as access to the beach just a short hike away (less than 5 minutes).

Room Tip: you must request a top floor!

We arrived late and without booking and the very polite and nice guy at reception offered a special price for the room. Furthermore his recommended restaurant was great and the sights he told us to visit were worth the hike.
The room was big and very clean. There was a new fridge, TV and very good WIFI access (free).
The bathroom was clean as well, big and comfortable as the bed was,too.
We had a room on the ground floor with a stunning view of the sea from the balcony.

The incredible ocean views, especially sunrises and sunsets, are alone worth 5 stars. This is the place you go when you need to re-charge. We find that it lifts our spirits and blows away all the work-related tension and anxiety like the wind does the fog. That said, I agree with the comment that addressed the beds. Ours was also hard on the back and in need of updating. Other than that however, everything was quite nice. The staff was attentive and very helpful and the housekeeping was immaculate. We'll certainly return to the Ocean View Lodge and we do highly recommend it.

The view from our room was absolutely fantastic. Just a couple of suggestions, the bathrooms could use some "Grab Bars" When you step into the shower, you have nothing to hold onto. At my age (70) you need something to hold onto. The King Size mattress in our room could've been replaced quite a while ago. Other than that it was a nice place to stay, clean friendly and like I said, the views fantastic.

A window table looking out at the sea...does it get any better than this? We loved the double-queen room on the ground floor. Beds separated by privacy wall. Room was clean; bed was comfy. Very spacious, and an extra sink and mirror. Pleasant staff at the desk. A couple of drawbacks: no microwave in the room (they will heat your food in the office, but it's not the same...); rooms are non-smoking, but many guests smoked constantly on the patios and balconies. If you want to sit outside without breathing in cigarette smoke, this could be a problem for you. We stayed in with the door closed more often than we wanted to. A winter visit might be a better choice.

We loved our room and the view! Easy access to the beach and trails to walk. The staff was wonderful and friendly. We enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay 1 more night and plan on going back in a few months.

We only had one night at this mildly dated but clean and very friendly Lodge. The weather was perfect and we spent the late afternoon on the balcony watching the sun set. Walkers and runners passing by, friendly waves. It was quiet and close to what we needed in Fort Bragg. The office folks were more than helpful.
