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... More

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.

we loved our stay, the cottages were a great price, plenty of beach access close by. Met the owner and his mother and nephew, great family. They go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant.
