Shoreline Cottages has a great location in Fort Bragg and near Mendocino. The cottages are comfortable with a bedroom and full kitchen. Most cottages have a covered car port and each one has its own hot water so it comes in quickly when showering. Our Dog Cottage had a gas fireplace, but since the weather was warm we didn't need...

We came up for the Abalone Cook-off again and had another great stay at our favorite hotel. We come up several times every year and always stay at Shoreline Cottages. We always enjoy the common area with the fire pit, and our room is always clean, comfy, and private. Paul, our host, was great. DnK

Not ocean front but special enough to feel like it. Clean, safe and comfortable. Kids will enjoy the safe park like setting on bikes, scooters and fire pit. Great atmosphere. Hosts are great!! Home away from home. Dog and actually people friendly too. We really enjoyed #7. Looking forward to visiting again.

We were guests at the Shoreline Cottages along with two other couples. We were in town for the annual Abalone Festival.

We stayed in a "family room" at Shoreline Cottages and found it to be clean, fresh, and pleasant lodging in a charming setting (a sort of cul-de-sac arrangement with lovely cypresses in the middle). Amenities were abundant (lots of extras!) and service was friendly and accessible. Loved having a simple but well-stocked mini-kitchen, unusual for an economy room, especially at...

Thank you for review. I am glad you enjoyed your brief stay with us. We are a bit of a throw back property, but that makes it so much more of a personal experience unlike some of these modern motels.
