"Nice big room. We had two queen beds, but one of the kids chose to sleep on the floor and one chose the chair/ottoman and everyone got their own bed with lots of floor room to spare. Staff was helpful. Fridge was pretty big for a hotel room."

Just 50 yards from the beach, the Surf & Sand Lodge offers intimate, relaxed accommodations reminiscent of a private beach home. Adjacent to the MacKerricher State Park coastal path, the family-owned hotel is a convenient choice for those wishing to explore the wineries, natural wonders and beaches of California’s northern coast.

Most rooms have ocean views, offering picturesque sunsets and the chance to spot whales from the comfort of private accommodations. Balconies or patios, free Wi-Fi, minifridges, microwaves and flat-screen TVs are standard in all rooms. Suites are ideal for romantic getaways, with luxuries like fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. The pet-friendly hotel welcomes four-legged guests with treats, and there is a dog park located across the parking lot at the sister property, Beachcomber Motel. Pet-friendly rooms are limited, and we recommend contacting the hotel before confirming your reservation to ensure a room is available.

Guests can start each day with free breakfast before renting bicycles to explore the nearby state park or ride along the coast. The hotel is a mile from a Skunk Train station; the line travels through redwood forest along the Noyo River. Glass Beach is a mile from the lodge, and Fort Bragg’s restaurants and art galleries are within a 20-minute walk of the property.

We lucked out with great weather during our stay at Surf & Sand Lodge. The room was clean and a nice size for a family of 4. Beach was easily accessible from our room and we enjoyed the complimentary bike rental perk from Travelzoo/Beachcomber hotel next door.

Met my 3 absolute criteria for a good stay: super clean, good bed & linens, and decent water pressure in the shower. The continental breakfast is probably not worth the stop. And if you’re planning on a massage or bike rental, book well ahead.

In-room jacuzzi tub was awesome!!!!
Other Comments
Initial check-in was a bit tense, as the clerk was very condescending when explaining their no-smoking policy and how local businesses close at 9pm “because people have lives”. Other staff were wonderful though.

We usually stay up the street at another hotel that gives an annual discount on Travelzoo and this one is a bit more expensive, but worth it for the most part because of the nice ocean view.
Other Comments
Right near the ocean with ocean view. Can't beat that. It's next to the Coastal Path, so you can easily walk along near the ocean.

We loved staying at the Surf and Sand. The staff was very helpful. Our room was very large with a lovely ocean view. Loved the larger than normal mini fridge and microwave in the room. The complimentary breakfast provided several great options. Especially enjoyed the bike rentals that came with our Travelzoo package. The oceanfront bike trail directly behind the lodge went for miles. So much to see. We loved the convenience of being within a mile of town, but in a quiet scenic location. Would definitely stay here again,

I love this little spot. What a view! Great walk way and easy walk into town, beach, everywhere.
Other Comments
I have stayed at this Lodge many times over the years. Their service and location are unparalleled. This visit I felt the rooms are starting to show more wear and beds are ready to be replaced. Their heating elements were rusty. And, while a pet lover and owner, it seemed that many more rooms now are filled with pets and their owners. I wish they would restrict that policy as it seemed every time I was on the premises, I had to navigate dog owners.
