Hotel 5 minutes from the Surf Ballroom
Posted Feb 7, 2017
I was there for three nights during the Winter Dance Party at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. The front parking lot was never salted/sanded for the ice that was present when I arrived. The provided breakfast had a variety of items that was continually replenished. However, the decaffeinated coffee was usually gone and not replenished. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. I never ran out of hot water. The microwave only worked when it wanted to and wasn't a high wattage (it took 4 minutes to heat a glass of milk to make hot chocolate). The top freezer (of the refrigerator) had a huge ice build-up, so I assume the refrigerator and freezer were rarely cleaned. The alarm clock was broken and you could not set the time on the alarm clock/radio that was provided in the room, so unplugged it and set the time on the microwave. I tried using my tablet, but their WiFi blocked almost anything I wanted to look at. If you have no use for WiFi, the refrigerator, microwave, or alarm clock...this is a perfect place for you. Otherwise, you might reconsider staying there.
