Located just 50 yards from the beach, the Surf & Sand Lodge offers intimate, relaxed accommodations in the form of 30 guest rooms with the cozy feeling 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.

Rooms feature balconies or patios, free Wi-Fi, minifridges, microwaves and flat-screen televisions. Suites are ideal for romantic getaways with luxuries like fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Most rooms have ocean views, offering picturesque sunsets and the chance to spot whales from the comfort of private accommodations. 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.

Guests can start each day with free breakfast at the Beachcomber Motel before renting bicycles with which 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 rented their bikes to explore the bike trail. Very fun. The tide pools at the state beach were cool.

Excellent location right on bluffs overlooking the ocean. Just walk out your door and across the bike/walking path to be on the bluffs.
Other Comments
Good location for accessing the many State Park beaches and the Cabrillo Lighthouse. Fun to explore Fort Bragg art galleries and drive down to Mendocino shops and galleries.

Being so close to the ocean; just slide open the back door and there is the ocean!!
Other Comments
Option of using bikes was great. Breakfast offerings at Beachcomber were far more satisfying than at S&S so that is where we went for our breakfast. An electric car charging station (in addition to the one at Beachcomber) would be helpful.
