A Hotel With A Unique Advantage

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Pros: We liked the amenities and knowing the room would be like a big city hotel room vs. the local beach front motel dingy room you could end up with.
Cons: The overall free breakfast was really good. However, the scrambled eggs were the only thing not good, only because they were probably from a carton.
Location: We rode the Skunk Train (Very cool), walked along the beaches, and ate out a great restaurants. Shopping is fun too if you like that sort of thing.
I spent a lot of time on line searching for an afordable but nice place to stay near the ocean for my wife and I's anniversary trip. After comparing this hotel with other nearby competitor hotels and motels I chose this one because of several reasons. This hotel had a great hotel gym and indoor pool. My wife always likes to sleep in while I'm a morning kind of guy so it was absolutely awesome to be able to get up early, sip a cup of coffee downstairs while sitting in front of the breakfast area fireplace in front of the TV with the news on, then hit the gym for a bit. After my wife awoke we would enjoy breakfast together which she especially enjoyed because of the fire place that was next to a window that looked out to a beautiful wild gorge greenery area behind the hotel. Our room was magnificent. I recommend any room on the third floor that faces south for two reasons. First you do not have a view of the usual parking lot and second you can clearly see the ocean! The staff was great too, always friendly, helpful, accommodating, and overall professional. We plan to return again someday with our children.

Great staff!

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: The friendliness of everyone who worked there!
Location: Northern California - the scenery alone is worth the trip. Botanical gardens are lovely. The beaches are cold but pristine.
The beds were very comfortable. The staff worked with us to be sure we had everything we needed for our 6-day stay.

great hotel

Posted Oct 10, 2014
We were very pleased with this Holiday Inn in Fort Bragg. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a very nice lady at the front desk. She was very helpful and kind. The hotel is in very good condition and the breakfast was excellent. They offered eggs, cereals, toast, a variety of pastries, pancakes, sausage/bacon, biscuits/gravy, fruit as well as fruit juice, coffee and teas. The hotel was very clean and we appreciated that very much. Our room was also very clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable and new. The housekeeping staff does a great job. Also the pool/spa area is kept very well too. The location is good but yes there is some road noise...didnt bother us much though. For the price you pay, I felt that is was well worth it. They also give you a newspaper at your room door each morning...a nice little touch! Stay here is you visit the Fort Bragg area!

Best hotel in the area!

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Sabrina at the front desk welcomed us with a bright and genuine smile and seemed eager to answer any of our questions. Check-in was quick and easy. We got a room on the 3rd floor facing highway 20. There was a little noise from the road but that diminished quite a bit after 8pm. Our room was very clean and smelled fresh and not of any cleaning chemicals. There is a flat screen tv, microwave, and a larger than usual mini fridge. What I find unique about this hotel is that they have soft and firm pillows and they are labeled on the pillow cases!! They also offer Bath & Body Works products AND makeup remover towelettes in the bathroom. A very nice touch! The water pressure in the shower was very nice and the temp didn't fluctuate. The towels were also very soft and not scratchy like most hotels Our room has two queen size beds, and a table with two chairs and still plenty of room. We are traveling with our 5 month old son and forgot our pack&play for him to sleep in but they were able to provide one for us at no extra cost. The beds are comfortable yet firm but in no way are they hard, and the sheets are super soft. Donna was at the front desk in the morning when we came down for breakfast and she gave us a sweet hello and smile and talked with us for a bit. The breakfast spread was pretty impressive! Lots of options to choose from. And free!! I have stayed at hotels where you have to pay for breakfast and they didn't have as such a great selection. My only minor complaint is th
