I would really give this place 3-4 stars. This Hotel is one block from the beach which is a real plus. We were given a room where we could peek between buildings and see the water. We could definitely hear it which was lovely. There are some really nice touches: buckets and beach gear for children, and there are games... More

You are right. We are just waiting for the season to wind down a little and outdoor carpeting will be put on all the steps and the hallways. We also have someone that is methodically painting all the doors as soon as people are not in them. Come back after the first of the year and you will see a... More

Great hotel and nice people. Location is superior. Right next to a nice beach which was not overcrowded. Everything was clean. Hotel itself had an interesting and fun layout. The internet was a bit difficult to get on but it was free and worked okay once you were on.

We loved our stay at the Ocean Surf Inn and Suites! We drove there no problem at all from LAX, and found it easily. Parking was free. Debbie was super friendly at check in and gave us lots of information and tips about the area. We often ran into her while coming or going from the hotel, and she always... More

I am sorry you were unhappy with the hotel when you stayed here. I would like to point out that the breakfast does have HOT pancakes, and no one has ever complained of the coffee to me. If you had said something I could have made another pot and labeled it strong for anyone wanting something with a stronger taste.... More

Nice hotel in the process of getting better. Talked with Debbie/part owner and she indicated that further work is being done during the off season. Inside the rooms was very nice with a microwave and a large but compact refrigerator. The staff was very responsive even to having a vase within one minute of our request. Very close to beach...

It's a stones throw to the beach, clean, affordable and has parking, can't ask for much more! Even better is the walk to Woody's or Harbour House Cafe. It's just too good! The room is large (king), with a good size bathroom. Refrigerator and microwave just in case you need while staying. You never know!! I'd come back again!!!

Great value for money, just off Pacific Coach Highway (very noisy). A cool little hotel with many plus points. Just across from the beach (chairs and towels available from reception), free parking, free breakfast, roof terrace with good quality furniture but seriously needs a repaint as it could be sooo much better. Large rooms with comfy bed, fridge and microwave,... More

Thank you for your kind words Linda and you are absolutely right that our roof top deck could be so much more. As a matter of fact we are waiting til it slows down a little bit here (so we don't disturb too many guests) and we are going to do the glass/stainless steel surround on the deck. I can't... More

The staff was amazing and extra accommodating for our family. Our ocean view room was fantastic. The breakfast was good. Perfect for easy access to the ocean. Perfect location for relaxing, laid-back vacation with kiddos.
