I did a weekend trip to this place with my wife and 4 year old. I booked a twin queen bed suite with sea view in the second floor and the view from the room was absolutely stunning. I could see 180 degree view of the sea that's so mesmerizing that I could just stand and watch the pacific ocean... More

The water is actually quite a ways away but you are able to hear the waves, if not very loudly, and see them from the balcony. We had an upstairs king with jacuzzi tub. Nice room, nicely updated and decorated. Very basic breakfast at the property next door, a quick walk down the trail that runs behind the properties. Good... More

During a quick northern California coast tour we had a one night visit to Surf and Sand Lodge. We were so impressed we cancelled plans further north to come back to Fort Bragg and this hotel for another 2 nights. The location, views, beautifully appointed room, value, and friendly staff are deserving of high marks. We reserved an upstairs double... More

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with this property We reserved an ocean view room on the 2nd floor knowing that we can both be sensitive to hearing footsteps above us.

We were fortunate enough to get a room over the long holiday weekend and downstairs, which we prefer, except for the party upstairs, who ran around like they were being chased.

The only thing I wished I had been told about was being able to use the sister hotel with the rental bikes and complimentary breakfasts. We weren't told this and I would have definitely rented a bike and gone for coffee in the morning
