The location was great being across from the beach and the maid was super friendly and helpful and kept the room clean which was the only clean part of the hotel, but the motel was very run down and out dated. The paint was colored and chipping off the walls. Keys were given to us with a room that was... More

This motel proves that you get what you pay for. $59 plus tax. Room was clean but very tired, bathroom tiny but again clean. Breakfast was included, coffee, cereal, muffins. Manager was very friendly and helpful, allowed us to look at a number of rooms and even found us one which was quite large and on the ground level. The... More

We booked online, so had no knowledge what we were getting into. Filthy carpet, peeled walls, wifi only works in room numbers under 108. Breakfast? Cereal and toast. But, no where to eat except your dirty room. I had to make 5 trips, as there is no tray in the room to carry anything. Only one chair in our friends... More

Avoid. Awful. Stinky. Horrible. Run down. Rough. Broken noisy fan. Lamp broken. Stains. Thin walls. Beat down. Rip off. $255 for the worst place we've stayed in. Extra for a non-smoking room and it still stinks. Wish there was a zero rating.

Checked in 7/30/16, with a toddler and an infant, room was dirty, smelly and the front office was rude. It was the last hotel with a room available and they used that to their advantage. They said it was nonsmoking but wasn't and there were holes burned into the comforter by cigarettes. Advertised WiFi but wasn't working and the breakfast... More

Checked into Ebb Tide Lodge yesterday (6/7/16) and was woken up in the middle of the night by an intruder- and he had a key! Office said 'oh- we get homeless sneaking into empty rooms sometimes'. They knew it, but didn't bother to change the locks!!! My deadbolt didn't work, and neither did my internet! No coffeemaker or cups either.... More

This motel is convenient but is tired. The receptionist was delightful and efficient, the room was clean & we had a good nights sleep. We could have done with a way to make coffee, the complementary breakfast was good. There was a small step to access lower rooms. The hotel is near the beach and the tourist information, a short...

Spent the night here after enjoying the Festival of Lights at the Mendocino Botanical Gardens which was wonderful. The clerk at the motel knew nothing about it which is sad. Her English was not easy to understand and she was not particularly friendly. Affordable, too bad they don't try harder.

Recently stayed in Fort Bragg Ca. with my sister. We thought the EBB Tide would be a good place to stay because you could see the ocean. The rate was high and the rooms were dirty. The mattress had black stains all across the bottom. Our socks were black from walking on the rug and the mirror in the bathroom... More
