Great small, quiet hotel with great prices and great views. Just seconds from beach, is associated with two other hotels next door. We were able to go next door and get free continental breakfast. Both properties have excellent customer service.

Thank you so much, mitchel e, for your great review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Not only is Glass Beach close but MacKerricher State Park is too! It's just a short walk along the Coastal Trail behind the hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back! Alex Guest Relations Manager More

The room was very clean and comfortable. Amenities were well done, and this place has a fabulous ocean view. One nice thing about this place is they don't seem to use scented laundry soap or fresheners, this is a big plus for my companion, as she is sensitive to perfume scents and we did not notice any in the room....

Been coming here for years and the newly remodeled rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean with comfy robes included in the amenities. It's a smaller property so much quieter as well. Check in was quick and the front desk was helpful answering questions about current activities in the area or restaurants to enjoy. Very relaxing to sit on the deck... More

Thank you, Cathy A, for your great review! I am so glad to hear you are a returning guest and enjoy your stay each time! With our set up of 5 rooms in each building it helps to eliminate most of the outside noise. I am glad that our staff was able to help you get to know the area--I... More

My husband and I were driving along the coast of cali from Oregon and stayed here for one night. Cute hotel with nice beach and clean room. We were only there for one night and checked out the beach in the morning and did go for a short night walk to stretch our legs. Was a pleasant and quiet evening.... More

Not only was the room upgraded and incredibly clean, but the bed was unbelievably comfortable. Nice amenities in room as well. Deck with overlook to ocean was steps away from great 10-mile path along coast. Couldn't have been better. We had stayed the night before just south of Mendocino at upscale inn with nice views but terrible beds and not... More

Beautiful room with great amenities. The view was fantastic of the ocean. Overall it was good except for the last night and the very noisy upstairs neighbors. Would stay here again if we are up this way.

We stayed one night during our Pacific Coast Highway road trip. It was a wonderful respite from our harrowing but beautiful US 1 journey from Lake Crescent to Fort Bragg. The Jacuzzi bath was a nice treat as were the sounds of the Ocean waves lulling us to sleep. Good view from the 2nd floor. Great check in service and... More

We stayed in the king jacuzzi suit and it was a really nice room! However, I thought for the cost of the room, it would be bigger, but it is no larger then a standard room. I guess you're paying for the jacuzzi hot tub and the view (which was beautiful!). It was a nice, clean hotel with friendly staff... More

Thank you so much for your review, Stevie H! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay but I am sorry to hear you found the room on the small side.

Overall, we had a good experience at the Surf and Sand. Remodeled rooms are very nice, altho I heard from others that some rooms do not have closet space for hanging clothes - not well accepted. We were on the second floor which has a great view of the ocean. Avoid the southern most room as it gets full afternoon... More

Thank you Al R for your great review! We have been having some unseasonably warm days and that can help to make the rooms uncomfortably hot. I suggest leaving your sliding door open while in the room to let the ocean breeze cool the room. Or ask the front desk staff to bring a portable fan to your room; we... More

My family and I had a great time. It was the perfect place to stay for us-our balcony gave us a beautiful view of the ocean, clean and great hospitality.
