Value, location and charm!! This is the hotel we will continue to use when in the area. And the people in the office are super nice. I hesitate to give a great review because I always want a room available for us!!

Our two-night stay at this beach inn was amazing. Staff is friendly, genuine, and have great suggestions on what to do. The rooms are unique - each one designed differently. The staff offered us beach towels and beach sports equipment, if we were interested. Access to the beach is right across the street, walking distance to pier, and Main Street....

Unique 9 room motel on PCH directly across from the beach and around the corner from all the Main St. action. Rooms are basic with surf (or music) decor, comfortable beds & modern bathrooms. There is a mini-fridge but unfortunately no coffee maker nor ice machine. All rooms are on the second floor with parking underneath. There is a nice...

If you are seeking a beach resort with onsite amenities and food service, keep seeking. If you are looking for a super reasonably priced clean room, comfy bed, with a clean private bath in an excellent location this is your place. There is ample space to unpack and the in-room fridge is terrific for keeping beach bevies chilled. (I will...

The Huntington Surf inn lives up to its name, our room had surf decor, very polite and accommodating staff. Answered all questions we had, got the inside scope on the attractions downtown, some of which as a former local I never knew about. Room was very cozy and the mini fridge was nice to store left overs. Rooms were spacious...

First, the good things: The location right on the PCH is great except the motorcycle traffic at night is really loud, (which is not the fault of the hotel but something to consider,) free parking, convenient smoking area, and a nice walk-in shower. Otherwise, pretty disappointed in this property. Yes, the rooms are each is painted up with a funky...

We checked in and the owner was so nice. Our room was exactly as pictured. The bathroom is very modern. The location was fantastic. We were on a road trip and it was great to walk to the pier, restaurants and shops after driving all day. We had to leave early the next day so did not get to hang...

I was there two days in the off season. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Others at the small hotel were very quiet so noise wasn't a big problem. PC Highway is just outside the door, so you hear cars a lot. Room is a throwback style and not fancy, but I liked it a lot. I...
