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...

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...

Do not get room 601 it's next to the road and you won't get any sleep at night because of all of the road noise. You can't even enjoy it during the day because of the road noise. Also I'm not sure if any other room is like this but this one you could here the shower of other guest....

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...

Absolute beachfront property all with views from private deck/balcony. Walk straight from your room out to a nice walk trail and in about 1 minute you will be on the edge of a sand cliff with about another 30 steps to the beach. Nice rooms, very clean and tidy and quite spacious. Breakfast is served at their sister hotel that...

We were hoping to stay at the Beachcomber but....! So they suggested we stay at the Surf and Sand. The property is newer, smarter and better equipped but with the same wonderful sea view. If only we had time to stay for more than one night. We only have a small criticism and that was the noise from the Magic...

Loved this place. The view of the ocean from our room helped make this a special trip. I went to the breakfast provided for my first cup of coffee (that worked as well). My wife and I are planning on a return next visit.

This lodge is right on the beach, we had an oceanfront room with a small porch that we could sit on and watch the waves. Beautiful place to stay, fridge and microwave as well. Would definitely stay there again if ever in the area again. Very Clean and easy to get to.

My wife and I stayed here in late September. We had a second floor room of good size. Very nice balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun and watch it set. Very clean. Easy walk to the beach. We came for the ocean and this place was an excellent choice.
