    First time staying here not my first visit to Ft. Bragg. Very nice accommodating staff, the room was large and very clean. The coffee maker is a keurig but could use and update. Other than that we had a wonderful stay.

    New, clean, nice rooms, great service and comfortable beds. I'd come back. South end of town a little close to highway, but road noise was not noticeable. Breakfast is just continental simple, but the coffee was good.
