Great waterfront motel
The Beachcomber Motel in Fort Bragg is the only one I've visited and I continue to return to it because of its excellent location and service. Located about a mile north of Fort Bragg, it is within 100 yards of the Pacific Ocean, with all its rooms facing the Pacific. I prefer the second story rooms with balconies, because I like to leave the sliding glass door open while I sleep at night and listen to the surf, but the first story rooms are just as nice and have a great walkway running down the length of the rooms. The amenities are normal, with microwave, fridge, and cable TV. The water is the only downfall, as it seemed to have an odd smell, but that probably isn't a problem. If you're looking for a romantic location, this is definately a great one.
Unique Quality: The best quality is its location relative to the ocean. I would wake up early every day and walk down along the many trails and just enjoy the peacefulness of the outdoors. A little explanation regarding the price I stated, that's per room and usually includes two adults, so it's not necessarily per person.
What a PIT!!!
Suckered in by its vacancy sign and location, just at the end of a bridge and closest to the cliffs than any other hotels or motels along the North side of town, we pulled in and went to the check-in desk. Looking back on it, we should have gotten a clue by the brusque tone of the receptionist, who answered our query of if they had a room with, “How many nights?” She announced that they had an upstairs queen with partial view for $59 and a downstairs king with no view for $89. “No upstairs king with a view,” my husband asked? “Well we do have more expensive rooms.”
“Well yes, please tell us what rooms are available.”
Suckers that we are, we chose the upstairs room with “the best view” and a king sized bed. $109 per night. Ouch. SUCKERS. And no, none of the rooms with fireplaces nor spas were available.
The room was straight out of a bad motel. Yes, it had about as good a view of the ocean as you can get, so that was no lie. But the TV was blurry, the room smelled like really bad air freshener, the bathroom was teeny-tiny, there were 3 pillows and none extra… and the real topper: the water out of the faucet and shower head TASTED LIKE SALT WATER. This we found out after coming back from dinner and we wanted to brush our teeth. Mark called the front desk and they said something about the water system getting infiltrated with the sea water, and that we’d have to get bottled water to drink. “We have to PAY for water?” The receptionist said if he went to the front office she’d give him some water. So he did and she did. We got two drinking bottles of Aquafina for brushing our teeth and drinking.
Who’s up for a nice salt-water shower?
To make up for such a horrid room, we left the door open all night and kept he heat on, so we could hear the surf all night.
When we checked out, Mark complained to the man at the desk. We were not offered any kind of a refund, deal, etc. Mark asked the man, "Would YOU take a shower in that water?" "No, man, I wouldn't. That stuff's NASTY." Uhmmmmm.... what does that tell you?
Unique Quality: Salt water from the faucet and shower. Nasty smells in the bedroom. Blurry TV. A very good view of the coast if you'll pay the premium charge.
Directions: The North end of town, just across a bridge.
