Kashif at the front desk is awesome. I also think the young woman who helped me print my AAA card on Sunday when checking out is awesome, but I didn't catch her name. We were there for two nights attending a Soroptimist district meeting and whenever we are in Fort Bragg, we choose to stay at the Surf Motel and...

Kashif was excellent in helping with accommodations! It was a relaxing and eventful stay. I highly recommend the stay. Jess is also amazing and helpful. This is defiantly my go to place in FT. Bragg. The free continental breakfast in the morning is also lovely as one gets to interact with other travelers in the area. Never a dull moment!

Cashiff (not sure if I am spelling this name correctly), the desk clerk, was so helpful to me! When I made our reservation through Booking.com, I had not noticed that dogs could only stay in rooms with king beds. I called the motel directly and Cashiff allowed us to have our pet in the room I had reserved, a room...

The rooms were very nice, and clean. The carpets didn't look new but everything looked and smelled very clean. The bed was huge which is always nice. For the price you can't beat it. The motel as a whole was very comfortable. And it was just on the edge of town, so it was quiet, but everything was within about...
