Vacaville, California
Reviewed May 28, 2016

From room and balcony could hear and see the surf, look out on grassy cliffs, rockey coastline. Could have just done that for hours and been happy. Can people watch from balcony or walk to glass beach only half mile. Front desk staff professional and helpful. Very clean and quiet. Pointed out small hole in screen (concerned re: Zika virus)...

QUIET, great ocean view/balcony, NICE big bathtub (deep spa type), fireplace with fire-log, sleep to the sound of the ocean. Wood/vintage furniture Continental breakfast not much. Stayed on a slow night, so "quiet" may be just an opportunity that I loved dearly. The reception (Lisa) genuinely wanted to put me into the best, quiet room. THANK YOU LISA!

We had an upstairs room with a king bed, fireplace and large tub in the Sea Spray building. With the age of the facility I was pleasantly surprised how updated everything was in our room. It also had a mini-fridge. The view from the balcony was amazing and the bike/walking path was also better than I had anticipated. I have...

Surf and Sand is comfortable, very clean and safe, centrally located. Beautiful ocean views. Would highly recommend a stay here. Great walkway, path to the local beaches. Beautiful tine of year to visit, wildflowers blooming, cali lillies, ice plant flowers. Whales passing through and harbor seals.

Thank you, 775katblue, for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! This is a great time to visit the coast!

The location and amenities were great. The long Ocean trail right outside the door was a great feature for people like us who like to walk. Providing bikes for a day was an added plus. Sunset from our porch the first night was beautiful.

Thank you for your review, Ed J. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay! There are also several trails that branch off the paved walking path; these lead along the bluffs and down to the water. With the beach so close it's perfect for a stroll while watching the sun go down! We look forward to welcoming you back!...

We arrived slightly early for check in but luckily our room was ready. Double queen room with private balcony was very clean and modern with fantastic view of ocean. It was an easy walk to Glass Beach. We then decided as weather was so nice to get a take out to eat on balcony and savour the view. The sunset...

This property is located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean with trails leading right to the beach. A simple breakfast is included at a nearby motel with coffee and tea available all day. The Haul Road is right outside the rooms and great for walking, biking or jogging. The rooms were nice with a small balcony to sit outside....

We have stayed at Surf and Sand several times, and have always had a great time! Our last visit was perfect as usual. We brought our dog and he had a wonderful time as well. The lodge is close to the water and a paved hiking path, so it is very convenient.

High marks for the strength and quiet of the rooms because we came in during a storm - we threw open the curtain and could watch the waves crash and the storm rage but we were able to sleep through it like nothing was happening. Great water pressure, nice appointments and friendly staff.
