I have been staying at the hotel for many years. Over the past 3 years the hotel has been going down hill fast. The room this year, Rm#9, the door hanging off the hinges. Repair was 3 wood screws through the hinge which protruded through the frame inside the room. Spotlight on the roof shinning into the room until 12AM,... More

This is just a beach hotel as mentioned in earlier reviews. However, I'm beginning to feel with what they charge they really need to do something with renovating this place. The doors are constantly slamming. The rooms are old and dated. Stay away from the rooms in the hotel they are too loud with the bands playing downstairs. Rooms are... More

My wife and I stayed at the surf city hotel for the LBI 5k this year. Granted it was offseason when we stayed, but we have been to the bar/lounge during the summer in the past so know what to expect. Great location. Good nightlife on premises and the staff are great. Next time we come down for a long... More

The hotel is ok if you are only looking for a place to sleep. Rooms are small and are in desperate need for an upgrade but clean. The fact that I got the last room might justify the price but I still think it was too much.

I went for the weekend with my family. I just want to say the reviews for this hotel are harsh. It's not the Hilton it's a beach hotel. It's clean, the staff are kind, the room was a descent size. It's attached to a clam bar, restaurant, and liquor store. We love it

Ate every day of our stay at the new Shuck's restaraunt at the Surf City Hotel. Great menu selection and every meal was outstanding with the new Chef. Definitely a must if you are at LBI!!!! I recommend the Jackie and Paul prime rib sandwich and the Pasta Vincano is to die for!!!!!! John P

General Manager was rude, aggressive and uses deceptive, unethical business practices to gain extra revenue. (Danielle M. Haggerty) Stayed here last week and after coming back ~30 mins past 11am we were dinged with a late check out charge.. We had told the front desk that we were running out for coffee and back in a few to check out.... More

Please be aware of the sharp tactics used by management regarding check out time. The 11 am checkout time is strictly enforced. We checked out 45 minutes late due to an unforeseeable delay at a local breakfast restaurant. The manager of this motel, who, by her own admission, was "in charge of everything," informed us that we needed to pay... More

This hotel has a good location and on site pub/restaurant which we enjoyed. Our waiter was really really great! The room however was extremely small. We were here for a wedding and had a tough time finding room to put anything. We were stacking things on the floor! The bathroom has only a small stool to put a few items... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Located in busy section of town but a very short walk to beach. I stayed in a Cottage room so I can't comment on the main building rooms . My room was very small with small bath. No counter for bath items, small - narrow bath/shower. No closet just 2 hooks! Bad impression as soon as... More
