If you want your money's worth, then this is the place in SPI.
But if you want to spend more, then there are lots of other choices...
A reviewer below summed up the Surf Motel experience well by saying, "The Surf Motel is one of the last vestages of "the way things used to be." It is the true beach side experience."
I can't agree more.
And I made a reservation weeks ago to make sure I got the same room I had two years ago!
Perhaps it is just a guy's choice, but I do not care much for extravagence, while the atmosphere, amenities and surf are more important. Locals, travellers and tourist are here and are an eclectic mix of a times' past experience. If you prefer new and perfect accomodations, look somewhere else.
