“It's was a great room in a great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Great room! 2 streets from Main Street! Quiet hotel we were able to party on Main Street and then come and sleep very comfortable! The rooms were unique and very cool! Great service! Would defiantly stay here again!

This hotel is the only place I will stay in Huntington Beach. The last visit was the 5th time I have stayed at the Inn. I'm usually in room 6 and feel right at home when I "move in". I sleep like a baby every time I'm here. Julie and James who manage the place are fantastic. They are very hands-on and go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Whether I need extra pillows or towels it's no problem. I highly recommend the Tuesday night street market a few blocks away. Super fun! See you soon Julie and James cuz I'm coming back in a few weeks!

Room Tip: I said it before and I'll say it again: Check out all the rooms online thru the reservation link...

I really wanted to like this hotel, but it didn't work for us.
We just needed a simple room to stay the night while traveling from Santa Cruz to San Diego. I liked the idea of supporting a locally owned hotel, but I wish I had made another choice. The biggest irritation was that the hotel left the lights on outside the rooms (for safety I presume) and the rooms didn't have proper window coverings. I felt like I could have read a book just by the light coming in through the window blinds. Since we were traveling with a toddler, it was especially annoying.
The street noise was pretty high as well and the carpets were really dingy. It could be great for other people, but it just didn't work for our family. I'm glad that there are independently owned establishments, but this one really needs to invest in curtains.

Dear Lisa A,

Thank you so much for your visit. Huntington Beach lodgings like the Huntington Surf Inn appreciates your sentiment about your patronage of small local businesses.

We certainly took note of your sentiment about lighting and noise. Our location right on Pacific Coast Highway and immediately across the Ocean means that we will not be absolutely quiet or completely dark at all time of the day. It is part and parcel of our fantastic oceanside location, as many guests have addressed in other reviews.

We would like to reassure you also that additional blinds are installed in our rooms for guests sensitive to any amount of light. We will be more aggressive in pointing them out for our guests upon arrival. Your comments on the carpet reflect your visit at the end of our year. Although our carpets are continuously being lauded by most of the guests, they are cleaned with high frequency, and are being changed annually. Your room's carpet is scheduled for change this week as a part of our routine year end maintenance.

We hope you will have another opportunity to return. We look forward for your kind patronage, especially from the standpoint of a unique and very small lodging.

Thank you again.

We arrived in the US after a long overnight flight and drove to Huntington Beach where we were booked to stay at the Huntington Surf Inn for two nights. We arrived around 10:30am and decided to see if we could get our room early. Julie and James greeted us with friendly faces and let us check in straight away which enabled us to get some much needed rest. They are extremely friendly operators who ensure their patrons have the kind of holiday they are looking for. The rooms were clean and beds comfy. It is walking distance to everything and enabled us land in the US, get our bearings and rest up in a friendly atmosphere.

A great place to stay. Julie & James make you feel very welcome.
Nice & clean with good shower & parking, walking distance to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. I'll be re visiting as soon as time and money allow.

Dear chrisgurr,

We thank you for your continued patronage. Return guests are our biggest affirmation that we are on the right path with our customer service as well as with our goal to be a honest to goodness value in lodging right on PCH.

We really appreciate your picture of the sunset. Hope you will have fond memory of time on the deck with your friends at the Inn.

Take care and hope to see you soon,

Surf inn is very good, nice rooms good atmosphere and a beautiful view. You can park your car downstairs and it's only a few minutes from beach and center. The rooms are not very big, but clean and with a warm interior.
