We have stayed at this motel several times over the years. This last visit will definitely be our last! The room that we stayed in has not been redecorated since the 80's, very ugly motif! The front desk staff was unorganized and poorly trained. The noise in the rooms is totally unacceptable! There is not a bit of soundproofing in...

We found the Beachcomber Motel to be an excellent motel. The rooms were very clean and updated. The room included all the amenities needed and the view of the ocean from our room was amazing! The staff was very courteous and more than willing to accommodate our needs. My only suggestion would to have two microwaves in the breakfast area....

Hotel staff very accommodating and personable! Property kept very clean and inviting. Enjoy the outside amities. The parking is a bit of an issue unless you drive a very small car, parking my truck is an issue and getting out of the parking lot is a challenge.

My family stayed here the last week of September. The room was spacious and the beds comfortable. We had a first floor room that opened up to the bike-hike trail and had view of the ocean. The patio had fires in the morning to sit by, eat breakfast and watch the water. The location is great. We walked to the...

We arrived late on September 21, 2016, at 10:00pm and this was virtually the only place we could find open and apparently we got the last room at the Beachcomber. Other motels actually closed their door on us, so get a room early if you're planning on staying the night in Fort Bragg. We were also told the full rate...

We just returned from a 3 day stay at this wonderful place. Room was very nice with a comfortable bed, microwave and small refrigerator--so great for a bottle of wine or snacks.

This was just a one night stay for us on our trip down the coast. Although it is a little pricey we enjoyed walking the beach, seeing the sunset, and getting some great photos along this rocky bluff shore line. Sleep with your door wall slightly open and you can hear the surf pounding the beach.

Our family that lives locally recommended the Beachcomber and we were very happy. Started out our stay with a couples massage - they were GREAT! We stayed in one of the pet friendly rooms that has its own doggie-door, which was adorable - but noisy because not everyone's dog is quiet like ours. Not the fault of the resort, we...

Nice little doggie park with green grass. There are two rooms with doggie doors and doggie pins that are located in the little doggie park. Would have been nice to have one of these, I could have stayed in bed a little longer instead of getting dressed to take out the dogs. Our room had no view and the carpet...
