The hotel overall is fine. Clean nice room, very comfortable bed, mini fridge and microwave. Check in was easy and staff was nice. Downside is parking is difficult unless you drive a compact. Construction is going on so it is pretty loud as the floors are just concrete in the hallways. The location is good for the beach but not... More

It could have been an amazing experience and place to stay. To start it is NOT on the beach but close to the waterfront. The rooms are large, the bed comfortable. But unfortunately, the good points stop there. The hotel was in heavy reparation when we arrived which means our floor was dirty, the tiles were completely off and the... More

From the moment I saw pictures of this place, I knew that I had to go there. It took a while to find an open room. In the meantime, I read all of the different reviews for this place. Everyone was saying the same things. First, that the hotel is located in the best spot, being right next to the... More

Nice enough for a one night stay. Had to ask for towels; none in room. Bed was comfortable. Short walk to beach. Complimentary breakfast including coffee, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and pastries. Free wi-fi. Free parking. Bathroom had shower cap, make up remover towel, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion.

Very welcoming and comfortable room, great location jjust south of Seal Beach, and close to restaurants, all the amenities, and right near the beach. It is being renovated but that did not affect our stay.

Booked this hotel through them, Has been renovated and still is going through renovation, on a Sunday? Really, we had worker that started at 8:30 talking, not making a lot of noise but talking and due to no sound guards on the doors or weather striping, we heard it all. Also if you are close to the open parking area... More

I booked this room only a couple of days prior to arrival. The room was large and comfortable. It had been recently updated. I always appreciate rooms that have refrigerators and microwaves in them. The room was quiet and looked toward the coast. I wish we had asked for a top floor room, we would have had a better view... More

Inn has been renovated. Carpets and furnishings looked new. Good beds. Everything was reasonably clean. They just need to pay attention to details. Towels are thin and really need to be replaced. We had to ask for wash clothes and hand towels. Towels are not replaced daily; nor was the soap or any coffee and supplies. Ok for a couple... More

Our house was doing a major plumbing job so we went up to Ocean Surf Inn for 1 night, about a 30 minute drive from Newport Beach. I have lived in Orange County for 70 years. From personal experience this a steal! Sunset Beach is not the glitz and glamour of Newport, but it is a great little town. Top... More
