"We enjoyed the location with an ocean view room and close to the trail. Fort Bragg had really nice hiking options and we enjoyed the local brewery. So many opportunities to get close the the shore and beach access. Because of the intermittent rain, we did not use the bicycles. We enjoyed our visit to both the community and the lodge."

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.

The location
Other Comments
The room was dark and dingy and the carpet cleanliness very questionable. Very little natural light in the room.

If you are down stairs and the upstairs room has a hot tub its loud enough that you have to turn the volume up on the TV, and they were using it until 2 AM, so sleep wasn't great the first night:(

I loved every little bit of our getaway, and the fact that you are so dog friendly (even providing a towel for our pup) was the best part. The only comment I have is that the breakfast was great (I know it is only continental - and the options are yummy) but please provide better coffee (anything else other than what you have now would be better)

Our room was nice sized and clean with great access to the beach just a short walk away. We lucked out with good weather and spent most of our time outside exploring the area. We used the TZ perk with our booking and borrowed bikes for a great ride on the coastal path just outside the hotel.

Front desk staff was pleasant and informative, check-in was a breeze. Location was great for us.

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.

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.
