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

This motel has been purchased by new owners and has been completely renovated. It is now called The Ocean Surf Inn and Suites. After booking my stay for Sanatra Inn, I went on yelp and was horrified by the reviews. I was not planning on staying but decided to at least see for myself how bad it was going to... More

For a place close to the beach, the price is unbeatable, however....if you are looking for a nice place close to the beach..pass this on by. The room was clean from what I could tell, but major renovation is needed. Cupboard doors don't close, the blinds on the sliding glass door to the DIRTY balcony were broken, it was supposed... More

The advantage this place has is it's location, the building & rooms are in a bit of disrepair, but it is cheap, and mostly clean. The hallways in the common areas are not super clean, but then, that's not where you sleep. You will find bulbs burned out, loose toilet seats, doors that stick, broken hanging blinds, oddball tv's, but... More

There are not many places to stay in Sunset Beach and this is my favorite. Really close to the beach, a walk to the canals but not too far. Really good value with good management, happy to help. There are,'t many shops nearby so def stop on route for supplies. Good location if you are planning on spending the whole... More
