My husband and I found this place over a year ago and now it is our 'Go To' when we visit Huntington. I've stayed at resorts in the area before but this place makes you feel like a local. It's small, only 9 rooms, which makes it feel more laid back and personal than chain hotels. The manager and his... More

So easy close to the beach, Main Street, and never have to move your car. Clean rooms small and a bargain compared to the Hilton and other on PCH hotels. It might be tight with kids but as far as just an anniversary with just the wife at the beach you couldn't find a better place

This hotel is fantastic I recommend anyone staying in Huntington to check this place out first when looking to book a place to stay! Super friendly staff who went above and beyond for us. Easy to book a room online or over the phone. They let us park there before our checkin time and when we called ahead our room... More

The staff here is friendly but that does not make up for the old funky rooms that are musty and loud next to pch. The other reviews were misleading and we wished we had not booked in advance as we wanted to leave when we got there. It seems like they tried some renovations but it feels like a shabby... More

We stayed in room 9 which is one of their two largest rooms. The accommodation was very good and the theming in the room was well done. The location is stunning; 50 yards from the beach and the room has nice views over it. The staff are very friendly and gave some great recommendations for what to do in the... More

Stayed 4 nights over Memorial Day and it was a great experience from check in to check out. We had Room 9 and it was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Love the large shower with window opening to a view of the Pacific. The beds could be a little softer and the walls are thin, so you do hear people and... More

We had so much fun staying here. You are in the best location right across from the beach and a short walk away from coffee, CVS and main street. Danny checked us in and was super cool. We stayed in Room #9 and it was shockingly clean and cute in person, the pictures do not do it justice. We stayed... More

We looked at a lot of hotels prior to traveling to Huntington Beach but the Surf Inn really stuck in my mind because of how cool all of the rooms looked. We booked our reservation last minute and only stayed for one night but I wish we had stayed longer. The room was clean and even cooler than it looked... More

What a great location on PCT right across the beach and within easy walking distance of the pier. Loved the deck outside that you can see the ocean from. Nice friendly and helpful staff. Close to the shopping and restaurants like Duke's.

This small inn features 9 "surf themed" rooms and a large communal deck overlooking the Ocean. Rooms and deck (and desk) are all on the second floor, while the first floor (street level) is a garage for the guests' cars. We had room number 3 which was spacious, with 2 comfortable queen beds, a drawer, a small fridge, tv, table... More
