The bed was caved in. And very small for a queen size. There was rust on the fridge and ac. The sink was held... More

Chose this hotel because of the convenience to the boardwalk (one block away) but the posivites end there. If you take heed to this review, do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel. We had to pay for parking seven blocks down because no one informed us ahead of time that they provided a parking permit for... More

Surf Villa is an unassuming, clean hotel that anyone who spends the day at the beach will love! The staff is courteous & the rooms are CLEAN! No bells or whistles, but the beach is what you want, right?!?!? They have a community kitchen with coffee maker, hot plate & microwave with some untensils so bring warm ups! Cross the... More

I should have known something was fishy when at check-in I saw a sign at the front desk saying “no cancellations after you check in”. We’ve stayed in better places in Paris for about the same price. I contacted Hector (the manager? owner? who knows) a few days before our arrival to see if our reservation was in order. It... More

For our vacation we weren't trying to spend much and chose the Surf Villa because the pictures looked decent. We got there and had no place to unload our stuff and ended up parking a block away. We came into our room after waiting an hour for it to be cleaned and we were stuck in the stuffy attic at... More

I would never recommend this place to anyone. Should be dozed & rebuilt. Took pictures of bathroom because it was so bad. Realized too late that we could've stayed at the Grand Hotel & Spa for same amount.

We found this place several years ago and watched it grow as the new owners cleaned painted, upgraded, replaced carpet, installed new AC units, Cable TVs and added the WiFi.. The large front porch is great. You can sit, have your coffee and watch the people go past on the boardwalk The hotel is family owned, maintained and operated If... More

My wife had called the previous night we had stayed to get info on hidden fees while we were shopping for hotels. Basically he gave my wife the idea that there wouldn't be any fees regarding the info we gave him so we booked. Next day when we got there we were charged extra for my 8 year old niece... More

The apartments A,b, c and d on the 1 st street have to be destroyed and left in a trash can forever !!!!!!! Worst apartments in the world and expensive. I prefer to sleep on the sand, for it is cleaner than inside of those apts. Never go to the surf villa apts on the 1st street.

Was very excited to find such a reasonably priced hotel in Ocean City in the middle of summer!! The hotel was clean, the beds pretty comfortable and the air conditioner in the room worked great! The gentleman at the front dest was very nice and answered our questions about the history of the hotel (it dates back to 1963!!). It... More
