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

If you are looking for a place to crash and shower while in the Los Angeles area, then look no further. The owner checked us in late and made it a speedy process as we were very tired. The room was cleaned well, the bed was comfortable, and she gave us the room with a balcony with a great view... More

Basic economy hotel with walking access to the beach and ocean view from some rooms. Fridge and microwave in room. Clean and affordable. If you want to be able to walk to the beach and don't need any frills....this is the place

We've stayed with friends and hired two rooms for one week with ocean view. It's very close to the beach. The room was a little bit worn out but clean. There were no bugs and the mattress, blankets were okay. And yes this room was cheap and that's what we wanted because most of the time we were out for... More
