The best place to stay in Fort Bragg. The room and staff were very pleasant. I have no complaints here. My wife and I went to Fort Bragg for the weekend, and when we do it again, we are staying here..

Room is spacious, tastefully appointed,overlooks the ocean. Microwave and refrigerator in the room. The big drawback is to get your breakfast which is included in room you must walk 1/3 to 1/2 mile down the road to the property next door. Breakfast is served in a very small area. Even though it is mid week, room was full and people...

Staying at The Surf and Sand was just delightful. My upstairs room had a private deck overlooking the ocean. I slept with my sliding door open so I could hear the surf. A beautifully decorated room with a gas fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub. Joe was so helpful. He knew all of the best places to go and to eat....

I don't know of many (any?) other places in northern California where you are so close to the ocean. My room was upstairs and the view was unbeatable. We saw a mother and calf whale from the balcony! The room is clean, attractive and quiet, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly...I love this place.

Clean rooms, great location , helpful staff. A little small but with this much beautiful coastline to explore, no need to stay in the room. Love the private balcony. Definitely prefer this end of town. Quiet -nothing but the sea

My husband and I spent our 27th anniversary at Sand and Surf. Perfect location, very friendly staff. The spa tub and balcony on the beach were our favorite. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Glass Beach is a must.

Go for it. We arrived in a torrential storm. It was glorious - private porch, deep-gulp ocean views and crashing surf. The luxurious 2 person jacuzzi was the perfect (comfortable!) place to watch the storm over the ocean. I wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely to enjoy the fireplace as the dawn came up. The sheets, towels and bathrobes...

The room and view are amazing but if you're staying in a Sea Spray room don't expect the wifi to work. This is the second time I've stayed and was in the same room both trips. I had to go into town to use a coffee shop in order to get work done on my computer. I had to go...
