From the check-in to the check-out everyone was friendly, helpful, and relaxed. There is a comfortable patio in the front of the hotel overlooking the ocean and Pacific Coast Hwy that is a great place to watch the sunset and have a drink. The rooms are cozy and clean and the beds are very comfortable. They even provide beach chairs, towels and umbrellas to use during your stay. My main reason for visiting was to bring my grandson to fish on the pier. The room was perfect for the two of us. But the best thing for me was the location. You can easily walk to the pier and Main Street in 5 minutes. If you stay here you are close to the heart of everything happening in Huntington Beach.

We wanted something close to the shore and downtown area near the Pier when in Huntington Beach. Typically I'm a loyal brand follower for hotels but decided to roll the dice and try Surf Inn. As mentioned in other reviews its an older hotel. The rooms are very basic and a bit dated, but is that really why you are staying here (for the hotel?). Probably not. What sets this place apart is the location. Right on Pacific Coast Highway, and about 2 blocks from the downtown area next to the pier. Easy walking distance to everything. The customer service also sets this place apart. Very friendly, wants you to get the most out of your stay at the hotel and area. Very flexible for us in terms of check in and check out. The type of ownership you root for and want to do well. The only two items I would recommend is that if they had larger rooms for larger parties, but that probably won't ever happen. The other thing is that just be aware when walking around the 7-11 next door. There are a number of homeless people around there and all sorts of eccentrics at the 7-11. Just use common sense. Hope the Surf Inn is around for decades to come

although the rooms are simple... fridge-freezer, microwave. each is unique. Barbara made us feel at home from the start. there is a cool deck to watch the sunset and unlike most places...... they dont charge for parking, you feel like a guest. you can walk to anything you might need, we enjoyed our stay very much and will be back !! the comfort of the bed was better than expected.

This is a no bells or whistles kind of place, but at the same time, a very unique and cool vibe in the heart of HB. It is more than enough for basic needs; microwave, mini fridge, and definitely walkable to most places you're going to want to go. The beach is just across the street, a great coffee house is a walk to the corner, and Main Street a few blocks away. Do know the place is older, and has been remodeled and revamped several times, so the Hyatt Regency, it is not. If I had to give one bad knock it would be the carpet. I have stayed in 2 different rooms over the years, and in both rooms the carpets were very dirty and sticky in spots. Not a deal breaker; I just put down beach towels down (that they provide) during my stay, and I was good to go. Other than that, I cannot fault this place. It has every convenience you're going to want in a motel style setting

This hotel has great charm, is clean, and within a few blocks of many places to eat including the beautiful pier and beach across the street. Also peaceful location, friendly staff, and within 15 minutes to John Wayne airport.
