My boyfriend and I stayed in a ocean view efficiency room July 25-27. I was so pleasantly surprised that I was able to book a room a few days before our visit especially since it is the middle of the peak summer season! We really lucked out. This hotel is perfect if you are looking to be steps from the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay here. Nice big room with nice deck and few steps to the beach. The bed was very comfortable and nice updated bath. We had a downstairs which was great and had view from the window in dining room and and living room. The decks on the lower level are larger. Nice full kitchen. Definitely would... More

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, Rose682. Each time we hear of a guest’s positive experience, we feel a burst of fresh energy. That might sound corny, but in the middle of a busy Cape season it is especially true. That you noticed some of our updates also gives us a great sense of... More

We have been staying here for a few days every summer for about 5-6 years now. It's a great hotel in a great location. Always kept clean, staff is very attentive and friendly. I've never noticed this before but I found the bed and the pillows to be extremely uncomfortable this trip. Will bring my own pillows next year! Other... More

Thank you, Jen S, for your honest review. I appreciate your compliment of our staff. It is challenging for a seasonal hotel to retain a strong staff and not a day goes by where I am not amazed at our great fortune to have such wonderful and caring folks working with us. I am very sorry, however, to hear that... More

I didn't think this stay would be as nice as the last, but alas I was wrong. The staff, the property, the quaint, quiet and relaxing vibe is there and appreciated. We returned again on July 4th week so there are lots of children and family, but nothing can take away from the charm that is the Surfcomber. Well done... More

Thank you for your review, deniseglenridge. It is our goal to make each stay nicer and nicer for our repeat guests.

We spent 4 nights at the Surfcomber and we were SO pleasantly surprised!! We had a simple room with 2 double beds and a small fridge. We had room 17 which was on the second floor and had an amazing view of the ocean!! We were not expecting such a great view, considering we did not have one of the... More

….And we would love to have you back, Debjake2002. Being a smaller place certainly has its pros and cons, but one great pro is that we can provide good ocean views even from our most economical rooms. One con, you might ask? Not having more rooms to accommodate wonderful and appreciative guests like yourself. Thank you so much for your... More

Would highly recommend this place. There is no on site restaurant, but Skippers is within walking distance. Everything is clean, updated, and well maintained. Staff is friendly and efficient. Many rooms have unobstructed ocean views. I do not need kids activities or indoor pool so I was not disappointed.

Thank you for your review, Christa M. Hearing about a good experience from a guest like yourself is what has kept us going strong for over 55 years now. Since adding a restaurant has never been an option, we are truly blessed to have the Skipper so close by. The fact that the Skipper is a long standing family run... More

This is a great find! Beautiful property and beach. Everything conveniently laid out. Nice restaurant within walking distance. Great cable for relaxing nights in. We love it and will be back. First time here and found by surprise, but the reviews are accurate and I would say it's even better!

We found this lovely location by accident. The staff is so friendly and the grounds well kept. Our room had a wonderful full view of the ocean with a private balcony.

Thank you, CatM3 for finding us and sharing your impressions. Your accidental discovery of the Surfcomber worked out for the both of us, it would appear, because our entire staff is motivated by each word of recognition their efforts receive. Also, a special thanks for calling out our recycling baskets and efforts to conserve brochures. You wouldn’t believe how many... More

this has got to be one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. the location being right on the beach is wonderful. this also means you are not right on Route 28 so it is very quiet. the prices are a little high, but it is definitely worth it. the staff was very accommodating for all of my requests.

Thank you for your flattering review, Sulaf 1956. We take a lot of pride in our hotel and I’m glad it shows. We try to keep our rates the lowest for the ocean front hotels in our area but for some folks it can still be a lot. For unbeatable deals on rooms by the beach, please remember to check... More
