Although we have traveled through Marysville many times, we usually stay in Blue Rapids. However, this time we had a small puppy with us, so due to our friend's allergies, we needed to rent a room in Marysville. We stopped in the Surf and we met BJ, the owner/manager. We visited a bit, and he said that he would be willing for us to have our pet with us in the room, so we were greatly relieved! There were a few other choices of motels/hotels in town, but we were so impressed with BJ that we elected to stay at the Surf without even visiting the other options. We were very pleased with our stay! The entire motel has been repainted and has new carpet. The rooms certainly met our needs. All of the amenities that you might expect in a much larger (and much more expensive!) motel/hotel were there: room refrigerator, microwave, TV with remote, iron, hair dryer, hanger space, clothes storage, daily shampoos and soaps, wifi internet connection (free!), AC worked great and was very easy to use, ice machine which happened to be next door (really convenient in the near 100 degree temps), breakfast with pastries, biscuits and gravy, packaged waffles, juice, and some other items, certainly enough to get you started. The hotel staff were very pleasant. At least some were family members. They all worked hard to offer clean rooms with everything working. We discovered that one of the outlets wasn't working and called BJ. He came down immediately (very late in the evening after we checked in!) and took care of it. Had it working in a matter of a few minutes. He was very professional and friendly. We told our family and friends about our experience and highly recommended that they pass the word along to other members who might be coming in from out of town for the family reunion. All told, it was a very pleasant experience from very nice people. We highly recommend that you consider the Marysville Surf Motel for your next visit to Marysville, Blue Rapids, or the vicinity. We will! Pamela and Rob :)
