For a beach hotel this one is nice, We had a nice oceanfront room, cold AC. Nice pool and cookout area. It is a great spot for a family. Close to everything needed, 10 minutes to rehobeth and 30 minutes to OC maryland..

The rooms are very nice and the ocean views are great. I only gave it an average rating because the parking is horrendous, they close the hot tub room too early, no smoking on the grounds and they kept getting mad because we hung our clothes on the rail to dry. I did like that it has a stove top... More

We have been coming to the Surf Club for over 10 years and our family loves it. Floor to ceiling windows for amazing ocean views and only steps from the beach. They even provide clean beach towels every day...one less thing to pack for vacation. They have a pool and charcoal grill available too. Each room has a kitchenette fully... More

My family and I have stayed at the Surf Club over the past three years and it has never disappointed us. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious, and the ocean view rooms are breathtaking. We will continue to stay there multiple times a year, for as long as the hotel remains open.

The service, the property, pool, rooms and the overall welcoming atmosphere at the Surf Club have been excellent and consistent in the past year. We have been staying at the SC for over 6 years, many times each year and the recent upgrades and management leadership and hospitality have made the vacation experience special. Looking forward to our next weekly... More

This hotel went to the length of CHALLENGING us to review their hotel. The hotel is nicely located on the beach, touting oceanfront property and beautiful rooms. The rooms are ancient with MURPHY beds that pull down from the walls. The decor is old and the rooms have a musty smell. The amenities are a plus - ice, kitchen, hot... More

We recently stayed here and it was a great time. We had an ocean front room with fantastic views. Floor to ceiling windows and anywhere you sat, you were watching the waves crash on the beach. The staff was so friendly and accommodating for anything we wanted. Amenities included the hot tub, sauna, pool, charcoal grills and one of my... More
