“Perfect Family Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Everything we could have wanted or needed for a wonderful family weekend. We had three different rooms in the hotel, all worked well for each family. Grandkids loved all the treats, popcorn, ice cream, cookies. The staff could not have been more pleasant and friendly. This is going to become an annual trip.

We appreciate your “Perfect” feedback, with all of those treats available we also have kid’s crafts and a treasure chest out on the beach filled with toys, kites, and beach toys. We hope to see you for many years to come.

Thank you,

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

During one partially cloudy/partially sunny weekend, we stayed in an Oceanfront room on the 4th floor. When I made the reservation, they told me that there was no ocean view from the bed, but standing, the view of the beach and Haystack was perfectly clear and lovely. From our room, we didn't hear a single other person or noise from another room.

The room itself was clean and there was a mini fridge and microwave which were very handy. The coffee was really great too. It was Sleepy Monk, which we also enjoyed in town at Insomnia Coffee. The fireplace was very cozy and added a nice ambiance when the rain was coming down.

There was a giant tub in our (giant) bathroom but we didn't use it. It looked clean though. The shower was good with lots of pressure and hot water.

You could walk to town from here, but it's not the closest hotel and to be honest, we just drove in. It is however, a nice walk on the beach to Haystack Rock.

We requested a movie one night from the handy list that they provided and they brought it (and a bag of popcorn) very quickly, which was so nice!

We also tried both breakfast and dinner at the Wayfarer. The breakfast was awesome. We had a great server (wish I could remember her name) and the food was yummy. The dinner was ok. The food was decent, it was just expensive for what you're getting.

We had a great 2 night stay at this perfectly located resort. The great ocean view from the balcony and the fireplace in the room made us very happy. We had easy access to the beach and it was only a short walk to the many art galleries and shops in town. Staff was very pleasant and made a concerted effort to make sure we had a great stay. There were many thoughtful details such as a microwave and small fridge and dishes as well as a broom and dustpan to take care of tracked in sand. We would definitely stay here again as long as we got an ocean view. Some rooms would have a view of Haystack Rock but not all. That said, the beach access is right on the doorstep.

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at Surfsand. They truly make all travelers feel welcome. We are a family of 4. We stayed in a beachfront suite with king bed and sofa bed. The suite was spacious and had amazing views of the beach and haystack rock. There bathroom was so large and had an lcd tv....the kids actually played and watched tv in there! The best part were the personal touches. The kids got a bucket and pail at check in and attended craft activities and an ice cream social in the lobby. At night they got a toy on their pillow. My favorite was the cabana service at the beach! In the evening, they will even make you a bon fire. We are coming back in July....can't wait!!

The staff was very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. From check-in with warm cookies and milk, a DVD to watch later, and help with dinner reservations. To help with resolving an issue with the room above us later (which went away immediately after the front desk handled). The room was beach front and very cozy despite the storm raging on outside!

It is always a pleasure to hear when our guests truly enjoy themselves during their stay with our Resort! I am sorry to hear that there was an issue with the room above you; however, I am glad that our staff was able to handle it quickly and efficiently for you. The staff is always eager to help with any issue or request that is brought to our attention! The beach front rooms provide an excellent viewing spot for the powerful, awe inspiring storms that can pass through! We hope you enjoy your next visit just as much!

Many Thanks,

Very positive experience, start to finish. Professional staff checked us in. Haystack Rock right outside, easy walk. Perfect view of the ocean and beach from the 2nd floor balcony. Immediate access to the ocean and beach from building. Pool/hot tub was clean and inviting, with towels stocked constantly by attentive staff. This was especially valuable since the weather was intense, with major winds making beach-going not a good option. 3 TVs in our unit, so everyone could be happy. Our King Bed was very comfortable. Kids slept on sleeper sofa. Beautiful bathroom with high end finishes. Bathtub was gigantic, and was positioned with a view of the ocean. They even came at about 7 pm to turn down the beds and leave little prizes for our 2 children. We only had time for one night, but wish we could've stayed longer. Would go again without hesitation.

I got an excellent rate for this hotel by joining their email list. It is very well situated. I loved being able to walk to town for meals and shopping. The room was comfortable and we really enjoyed being able to open the windows for the ocean breeze and the very nice fireplace to take the chill off at night.
The room was kept clean, but twice I came upon the room with the door left open to the street/parking lot because housekeeping had left it standing open while they went to refresh supplies. I found that very disturbing. The front desk staff was not particularly warm or welcoming. We had a significant disturbance caused by a very noisy child running back and forth in the room above us. Although we called the front desk to ask them to deal with it, there was no evidence they did.
