Nice people clean rooms. Just a short walk from everything you would possibly want to do. The beach pier and Main St only steps away. Amazingly Beautiful view of the morning beach from room #9. We will see you again soon HSI!

This hotel is close to everything! A great staff and home like expierence! I was little late getting in and i got a call to make sure everything was ok. Very clean and the pictures are just what you get. It's a small not chain unique hotel. MUST Stay and check it out.

We only stayed 1 night so did not get to enjoy the Surf Inn I was looking forward to. Major construction going on and they probably should not have been receiving guest. We were not informed of construction until the day before our arrival. Change of room (no big deal to us). Except the next morning the sawing began at... More

This hotel had everything we were looking for... price, cleanliness, close to the beach, shopping and eating and something with a local feel. The Surf Inn is very unique and close to all attractions. We didn't use our rental car one time after we checked in. Owners are very sweet and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

I took my 15 year-old daughter and her friend to Huntington Beach for 5 days before school started this fall. Our goal was to have a worry-free beach getaway. This Inn was a great solution. With its location right across the street from the beach, and a close walk to anything we needed, we were very satisfied. The managers were... More

Was the best room! Great great ocean views, love the colors and the decor was fabulous. The staff did everything they could do to make our stay the best. Always smiling, great food recommendations, will be the only place we visit when we hit the beaches again.

We were completely disgusted from this hotel. From the beginning, we were thrown off by the owners who lives in the office with their several Birds. The room cleanliness was disgusting. The comforter was filthy; had dirt and smelled of dirty hair, and the bed was not even fully made. The closet doors were off the hinges, and the lights... More

Dear 97unknown, Your comments illustrated how difficult it can be in our industry to find something "just right". Indeed, it seemed like the reviewer right before you stayed in the same room and had a very positive experience with his quarters and with the managers. We certainly are not happy that you did not have the same great experience as... More

This place is a little gem. Don't book a fancy hotel and pay more, this is clean, fun and right on the beach. We booked Room 9 (King) and it was panelled with reclaimed wood and had a great vibe.

This funky renovated hotel was great. Loved the decorations. I got a very good night's sleep, the owners were super nice, and it was just a few blocks from downtown. Only complaint is that they didn't have conditioner or lotion for toiletries, so be sure to bring your own.
