Booked this based upon other contributor's reviews, surprised by the number of high reviews based on on my experience. Very disappointed with this place. We had a handicap room, the entire bathroom floor stayed wet during entire stay. Carpet old and coming up in several spots. Towels and linens very old and worn out, rooms need to be updated

I've been staying here on and off and really enjoyed my third visit to the Ocean Surf Inn & Suites. A hotel manager, Deb Scribner made everything that was in her power to make my stay the best one ever, thank you, Deb! For those, who aren't aware of the hotel, it's located right between Huntington and Sunset beaches in... More

This is my third stay at the Ocean Surf inn and suites and every time my stay here is getting better and better! The place is clean, affordable and located in the center of the city with all its shops, restaurants, as well as the ocean. Best hotel in Huntington/Sunset beach area, guarantee!

I just finished a business trip to Sunset Beach and stayed 4 nights at this hotel. It was quite, clean, the beds were comfortable and it was close to everything including the beach! I would definitely stay here again!

For a local beach hotel you can' t beat it. Very Nice updated rooms with all the amenities of your nicer chain hotels. Nice comfortable beds, flat screen TV with 5 HBO channels, fridge and microwave, and granite counter tops in the large bathrooms. They even have a free light cotinental breakfast with an automatic pancake machine. They have beach... More

This was a surprise as the location is only 50 yards from Sunset beach. Very clean and modern with excellent furnishings and super comfortable bed. Very good value. Safe parking and excellent breakfast.

Friendly ownership (not a chain!) tries to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Easy walk to the surf and nearby restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay again if in the area ( or just wanted a nice place to spend the night!

We had a bit of a whirlwind trip in Southern California and wanted to be able to spend at least a little time at the beach. This hotel is one street away from the sand, and we paid a little more to be sure to have a view of the ocean. Debbie, the manager, was very kind and laid back.... More

This is a very good independently owned hotel. We had the deluxe ocean view room. Which had a good size and nice view. The manager/owner is really attentive and takes good care of her guests. You can borrow beach items such as boogie boards and beach chairs. The breakfast room is small, but it is a very good breakfast and... More

We stayed here on the last night of our trip in one of the rooms with a jacuzzi. Coming from a luxury resort in Laguna Beach (@ twice the nightly rate), we were prepared for something of a letdown but were very happily surprised. The rooms seem to be newly updated with tile and stone counters, floors and veneers and... More
