Clean rooms, great staff, and a fantastic bargain! I pulled in after a few hundred miles on the road on my motorcycle, and the front desk clerk was very nice, and had great advice on a local restaurant. She checked me into my room quickly and efficiently. The property is small,and has nice gardens all over. The room was pretty... More

Best hotel we've stayed in for the money. In fact, it's far better than many more expensive rooms we've rented. The rooms a very clean, quiet and while not overly spacious, they certainly have more than enough room to feel comfortable. Nice beds and bathroom area. The gazebo was wonderful. We sat in it, talking late into the night (actually,... More

This place is very clean, and quiet. The gardens are well planned and during the spring I'm sure there is a huge burst of spring flowers judging from the grounds. The manager and staff are totally accommodating. The rooms are clean and nicely maintained. A cut above a Motel 6 or Super 8. There is a store in a 5... More

Ain't what it used to be. Has this place changed ownership in the last year or so?! Wanting a Christmas weekend getaway, we picked The Surf, having booked here before and had a pleasant stay. We arrived on Christmas eve to an almost empty parking lot and were assigned room 120, the first room past the office, right next to... More

Thank you for your review. The room you stayed in has been newly remolded and is one of our better rooms. As for breakfast we offer a better continental breakfast than most hotels where we offer fresh fruit milk juice cereal toast and pastries as to where they offer doughnuts and coffee. Sorry for any inconvenience and hope to have... More

Stayed here one night and loved it. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and well priced. The staff was amazing and so helpful. I always try to stay at mom and pop hotels instead of the same boring chain hotel and I was not disappointed with this one. I will definitely stay again if I'm in the area.

We just wanted to have a quiet and relaxing long weekend. This hotel was just what we needed. The room was comfortable and the grounds were well maintained and welcoming. There were BBQ's available and benches to sit and read on. The rooms had microwaves and refrigerators. The staff was very friendly and willing to assist their guests. I asked... More

We stayed there for four nights during Thanksgiving and as usual it was a very pleasant experience. We've stayed before, so we've been in more than one of their rooms and they've all been clean and comfortable. The staff is always helpful, a lovely young lady named Desiree was extra helpful in making sure we had a rollaway bed. The... More

Clean and comfortable, very reasonably priced. Well located, with lots of hiking (3 state parks and one state reserve within easy driving distance). Mendocino Botanical Gardens also nearby. The breakfast was minimal.

This motel is located a the very southern edge of town and fit our needs. We had a room at the far end of the complex and the internet was spotty. The room was clean and quiet. The gardens were lovely. We would stay here again.
