Second time my family has stayed here. If you're looking for high end hotel, this is not it. Nor will you find that type of hotel on the Cape. The rooms are kind of old and damp smelling, don't think you can get around the smell being that they are right on the beach. As far as being old, the... More

We recently stayed at the Surfcomber on the Ocean five nights for a first-time visit to the Cape. My sister-in-law chose the location, and it turned out to be a good one: located mid-Cape Cod, the Surfcomber is situated on on a pretty stretch of beach with several other motels. This location is supposed to offer warmer water, and true... More

Our second stay at the Surfcomber. We had a second floor room this time and no kitchen, but every room has at least a fridge and microwave, as well as a Keurig coffee maker. We still had a good view and there was less night time noise with no one overhead. Also had a corner room, so no one passing... More

Great location, convenient access to all the Cape! Our room was small but faced the ocean! The view and sound of the waves all night was just what I wanted! The small private beach was very nice and beach lounge chairs are provided.

Yes, the location is phenomenal and right on the beach and the small pool was nicely heated. The rooms are just ok. Clean but fairly dated with the smallest bathroom possible. The beach towel process is insulting--for over $300 per night, please don't make me leave a $5 deposit per beach towel. Private balconies would be nice but we did... More

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Surfcomber. The room was relatively small, but quiet and clean. The staff were friendly, the pool heated, and the beach area not crowded despite it being a weekend in July. It's centrally located in South Yarmouth so it's near Hyannis and all the restaurants and shops spread across Yarmouth, but be prepared for... More

Hello, We are glad to hear your family enjoyed your stay at the Surfcomber. I apologize if there was any confusion about our rates. You are correct in that the rates are based on double occupancy and each additional person is $10 per night. Included in this charge is a cot or crib if needed. Regarding the ocean view rooms,...

This was one amazing place. Great location great staff from front desk to pool manger and everyone in between. Housekeeping and young boys taking care of the grounds were hardworking and delightful. Mia was my favorite. Hardworking kind funny helpful and efficient! Tree should be one of her at every resort. The location can't be beat. On the beach, pool... More

We stayed at this hotel one night on our way up the Cape. I wish we'd known this is where all the young drinkers stay and party. Two very loud groups were up until 2 a.m., broke into the pool, partied on the outdoor balconies and beach. Staff didn't do anything when we complained nor offer us a discount. Much... More

We sincerely apologize for the experience you had at the Surfcomber. We pride ourselves on being a quiet and peaceful family and couple focused small hotel. Unfortunately we cannot know in advance the intentions of every guest who makes a reservation. That said, we are sorry our staff did not resolve this issue to your satisfaction. We do hope you...

This place is PERFECT for a family with kids. It feels like you have a private beach and pool all to yourself. Service was impeccable from the 1st moment we arrived until we left. The property and the rooms are maintained to perfection. All the food and activities are within 2-3 minutes driving. We are definitely making this a yearly... More

We stopped here for 3 nights for some R and R during the middle of our driving holiday and was pleasantly surprised at just how much I enjoyed it there. You're slap bang on a private beach with sun loungers and if that's not for you, there are more around the heated pool or on the lawn. Everyone we spoke... More
