The room and view are amazing but if you're staying in a Sea Spray room don't expect the wifi to work. This is the second time I've stayed and was in the same room both trips. I had to go into town to use a coffee shop in order to get work done on my computer. I had to go...

We have been staying at Surf and Sand for years and were thrilled when Beachcomber took it over and upgraded it a few years ago. Our two-queen first floor room is always immaculate and well stocked with toiletries, coffee machine, and fridge with small freezer. We have a deck, ocean view, and screen door so we can listen to the...

My stay was a great experience. Office staff was very kind and considerate. The room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities. The ocean view is breathtaking. It's nice to relax with that morning cup of coffee sitting on the balcony listening to the ocean waves or having a glass of wine in the evening. I will continue to...

I come to visit the Mendocino coast usually once or twice a year to see friends. I try to stay in new places to check out my options. The Surf and Sand Lodge was very accommodating! It's easy to find, facing the ocean when you come into town from Hwy 1. It seemed really new too. The staff was particularly...

Our stay was a great experience . The room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The location was perfect . We had an ocean View that was breathtaking. The walking trails to the beach made walking a pleasant part of our vacation experience. We would happily stay at Surf and Sand in the future.

Took my husband for his birthday on a Travelzoo special. The room overlooked the ocean with a deck with two chairs. The room was decorated very nicely with great amenities including makeup remover cloths, nail file, q-tips, and a sewing kit. The soaps smelled so good! Staff were very helpful in selecting great restaurants as well. We will definitely return....

I think I love just about everything at the Surf and Sand Lodge! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view of the ocean and accessibility to the beach were great. The staff were as friendly and helpful as you could want. I highly recommend it and I will definitely be back.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. Each building houses four rooms. Our room had a little deck facing the ocean with Adirondack chairs and steps down to the multi use trail. The room was well equipped with a mini-fridge and microwave. The beds are comfortable. We ordered a roll-away bed as well for an extra $10. Easy walk to neighboring...

Thank you, chadm149, for your review. I'm sorry that the road noise was disruptive during your stay. We are located on California HWY 1 so road noise does exists, however our unique set up of 5 rooms in each building helps keep the outside noise to a minimum. I suggest booking an upstairs room, either a double queen or king...
