Good clean rooms, though a bit dated. Clean and comfy bed. Slow WIFI. Good mini mart 2 doors down, good café 3 doors down serves great breakfast. This hotel is really handy for Hearst Castle and the Elephant seal colony nearby

Very comfortable bed and pillows. Very quiet. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in room. Pool & hot tub. Good location and great value! This is where we will stay the next time we are in the area.

Only accommodation on the trip I didn't book and I think I've been promoted to chief booker. If you want the absolute basic, this is the place for you, right down to the ice machine with unusual noises. The hotel itself was clean enough and the reception staff spoke the minimum amount of words required to book you in. If... More

Clean rooms at reasonable prices. Across the road fro the beach. Coffe maker, fridge and microwavei n room. Discount coupons for restaurants. You must read their brochure for a good laugh. (4 mispellings that are hilarious).

We were looking for an affordable location not too far from Big Sur and San Luis Obispo. This is a nice one, good relation quality/price, rooms are clean, fully equipped and the hotel is located in a nice area, not far from the beach. Breakfast wasn't included though.

Silver Surf Inn has a really good location, right in front of the beach and only 15 minutes from the Hearst Castle (which you definitely should visit). Rooms are nice and clean. Staff are friendly. Complementary free coffee was offered. It would be better if they offer a free continental breakfast.

Let me preface this review with the fact that I never leave negative reviews anywhere, but this place sure as hell deserves one. We paid for a night at this hotel on our drive up through California the same day we were supposed to stay there, but were never able to stay at this motel. Knowing that we would be... More

We've stayed here 5 times, it's always pleasant, staff is nice, rooms are clean, perfectly located between Big Sur and San Luis Obispo. My only suggestion to the owners is...please repaint the jacuzzi! It looked so bad I could'nt get in it : (

Room was clean and beds comfortable, room size a little small and no air con but really couldn't expect much else at the price paid. Shower really only suits small people, water really hot!! Walls are a little on the thin side - sounded like a herd of elephants above us and could hear a tv through one wall and... More

We were passing through on our way up the California coast and needed a place for one night. We visited the Hearst Castle and Elephant seals during the day and did not want to attempt an evening drive up the Big Sur region. The hotel OK for one night, clean, quite, good location. We did see the cleaning staff well... More
