Had a great stay at Shoreline Cottages. We chose this place for the location, the fact that we can bring our dog and the number of positive reviews. Well we were not disappointed.

Kevin and I can't say enough about Shoreline Cottages! The minute we checked in, the owner Paul warmly welcomed us to the cottages and told us about all of the hot spots in town. We got the moose cottage and it had everything we needed and more. Things we loved...BBQ'ing steaks for a relaxing dinner, having cocktails by the fire...

I've been staying in Fort Bragg for years....camping a lot...and in recent years staying at another dog friendly motel down the road.....(That place, although it had been my go-to place with my dog for years, has recently changed ownership and no longer feels friendly). So my good fortune was to email the Shoreline and communicate with Paul. It turns out...

Hey Judy, thank you for the wonderful review. I am glad you and Ava enjoyed your stay with us. Me and Bruce had a good time hanging out and chatting with you at the fire pit. I think Bruce misses Ava already. I am glad you gave us a opportunity for your stay in Fort Bragg and that you both...

I recently stayed in the Lighthouse cottage (#5) at Shoreline Cottages while my friend stayed in Dog (#3). I have stayed in many other motels/hotels and houses in the area over the years (love Mendocino / Fort Bragg!), but this one was the best. The cottage décor was charming, the bed very comfy; everything very clean and there were lots...

Our stay at the Shoreline Cottages was so relaxing and comfortable. The first morning we made our own breakfast. We were going to go out for a nice dinner but decided to use the BBQ that was set up next to the fire pit. The room was very clean. The kitchen had 4 of everything for dishes and silverware. Paul...

This place had a lot of great reviews and it did not disappoint. As others have stated the owner is great as well. Nice to stay at a place where the owner really cares.

We generally use TA to find places to stay. This motel was highly ranked, so we paid a premium to stay. I've stayed in many motels and this was fine, except that we had higher expectations given the high ranking on trip advisor and the price. The fire pit is a nice touch, the service is friendly and the rooms...

Thank you Brian for your review. I hope you and Howard are enjoying the west coast on your Harley Davidson. I do apologize about the flies, is it possible a random one flew in with an open door. Other wise with our cool temperatures there are not a lot of flies in the area normally. As far as the family...

We just wrapped up our 2014 Road Trip on the Harley. When we rolled into Ft. Bragg we did not have a place booked to stay. We found this gem on Trip Advisor & it was beyond our expectations.
