fantastic location on the cliff above the pacific.

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: the location, the folks who run it and the town is charming. the surf grocery store, right next door, is one of the finest stocked stores anywhere.
Cons: way to much lysol sprayed everywhere...... had to air the room and after some fresh air it was fantastic. facility is a lil worn, but worn from fun
Location: the california coast and charming lil hamlets are at your disposal.
the surf inn has a wonderful vibe to it. the delightful young couple that run it do so with a friendly and charming personality. most of the guests became a fun community of strangers who ended up not being strangers. i will reiterate that moving into the 21st century and using less toxic cleaning products would be the final addition to an otherwise clean, but a wee bit shopworn, place for people to really enjoy a lovely venue.

Nice location, close to ocean

Posted Jan 27, 2015
Cons: The hotel is more "rustic" than I a used to or care for
Nice location near ocean, but most rooms do not have an ocean view. Nice fire pit. Walk to store and restaurants.

Great location, but a bit rundown.

Posted Jan 27, 2015
Pros: Dogs okay.
Cons: Maintenance
Location: Right on the coast. Stores and few eateries nearby.
They allowed our dog, without any fuss. The beds were clean, but the window blinds had mold, and the floor needed repair (which they covered with a rug!). The kitchenette was pretty rudimentary.

Fabulous ocean views...

Posted Dec 21, 2014
Great staff. Clean and comfortable room with fridge and microwave. Loved the wood floors and fireplace-heater. Wonderful breakfast with homemade muffins, real scrambled eggs, and sausage gravy. Fabulous views of the surf. Quaint little town off of Hwy 1.

Close to the beach, needs repairs

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Great ocean view from the parking lot.
Cons: PUT SMOKE DETECTOR BACK IN ROOM.
The room need paint touch-ups, a smoke-detector, light bulbs replaced in the bathroom (and vent repaired), as well as wall repairs around the exterior of the shower. The breakfast is so-so, mostly a lot of carbs and no fruit options besides flavored yogurt.

Ocean view for EXTRA - won't go back.

Posted Nov 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
The folks who ran the hotel were wonderful and the scenery was absolutely spectacular. The bed was horrible and the pillows were like packages of cottage cheese. Lumpy and really bad, seriously? You can't spend a few extra bucks on pillows? I took my partner there for her 51st Birthday and had to pay extra for an ocean view even though I assumed I booked a ocean view on hotels.com. There was NO SCREEN in one of the windows which they weren't willing to do anything about because we booked on hotels.com. They said, "we NEVER give our good rooms on Expedia or Hotels.com and we can't refund any money because you booked on Expedia/Hotels.com. It was clean, even though it was really dated...looks like they got their artwork from Ross or Marshall's; too bad they didn't pick up a couple pillow there while they were at it.

Great Location, Good Value

Polite desk staff, thin room walls, gorgeous location next to ocean, small room but good amenities - TV, wireless, microwave, fridge, comfy bed but tired linens. I would stay there again.
