We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as the price was great with continental breakfast included. Our room was immaculately clean and comfortable. It is a typical motel room of queen bed, table and two chairs, dresser, fridge and microwave, bathroom with shower stall only, separate sink, coffee maker, wifi and tv. The place was very quiet despite being almost full... More

The room was extremely clean, organized and had all the necessities. Hair dryer, clean towels, tv really good working, instant wifi, and parking right outside your door. If we come back to the coast I am booking in here for sure.

The rooms were great and the price was even better! They have fire rings and horseshoe pits so even at night there's a lot to do! It is very close to all the major beaches and right next to the town. Great place and will definitely be staying here again.

During a road trip up North with the hubby we stayed one night here on 2/4/2015. Got a room all the way back. A bit dated but very clean and comfy. Awesome location and the grounds show pride of ownership and are quite pretty. Staff was friendly, prompt and accommodating. Will stay here again on another trip!

After read reviews, I was expecting it to be more upscale. Re-reading them I noticed they mainly referenced the good value aspect, to which I have to give a nod. The rooms are quite small and the baths comparable. Only a shower stall in the one we had. Very little area around the sink for your things. The room was... More

Thank you for choosing Surf Motel and Gardens. We are sorry that the room was to small to your likings. We do have king sizes beds which does offer more moving around space for two people. Our queen room is mainly used for a single person not a couple. Maybe next time we can offer you our deluxe king. Looking... More

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.

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.
