Arcata, California
Reviewed 14 March 2013

It was actually hot sitting on our balcony listening to the ocean. Rooms are large w/ a great sitting area next to the gas fireplace - love seat & chair w/ coffee...

Very nice hotel perched on the side of the cliff overlooking the mouth of the Noyo Harbor in Ft. Bragg. Incredible views and sweet ocean air! The room was rather large, but a bit outdated. I think the hotel was probably built in the late 80's or early 90's, so I felt like I was stepping back in time. Lot's...

Beautiful views of the Ocean seashore. Rooms are so comfortable and most have a hot tub. Very quiet and peaceful. All the employees are very helpful and friendly. And close to restaurants. Nice pleasant experience. Great place to just refresh and reboot.

Road trip to Fort Bragg. Romantic getaway, sightseeing, chillaxing. The North Cliff Hotel is a great place to be in Fort Bragg. At first the location was a surprise!, right next to the Highway!!.

Very nice and relaxing hotel. Zacuzzi tub, fireplace, bubbles and even comfy robes are provided. Nice private balcony facing the ocean with great views to watch the sunset. Have been here a few times and have never been disappointed.

We are sitting in our room right now! When you arrive, you walk in to two fantastic views..a large window and sliding doors leading to a cute, private deck. It was breathtaking! We just got back from a wonderful dinner, also. Very attentive waiter and wait staff. The food was a tad expensive, but we have NO complaints...none. Why didn't...

How can you tell if you really love your hotel room? If you ask for checkout time extension (and get it), and then when the time comes, you are still there, begging the cleaning lady to come later :-) What other reviewers wrote about the hotel being on a highway is true, and it really does not look promising when...

San Francisco, California
Reviewed 4 February 2013

This hotel is on a freeway; it's cheap and noisy and across from a strip mall. I bought two nights on Travelzoo for $270 and am checking out early to stay at the Mendocino Hotel. Definitely not worth it, even at a discounted rate.

The North Cliff Hotel is located in Fort Bragg, the largest town on the scenic coast road between San Francisco and Eureka. It is a 15 minute drive north of the cute, touristy, and substantially more expensive town of Mendocino. It is also arguably the best hotel in town, with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean from almost every room....

My friend and I stayed on a Thursday and Friday evening on a travel zoo certificate that also included a $50 dinner coupon for the Cliff House Restaurant adjacent to the hotel.
