It was amazing to be so close to the beach! While Sunset beach isn't quit as pristine as Newport, or Huntington it was so relaxing to be able to listen to the waves crash at night. Our room was comfortable and offered a balcony to sit and listen to the waves. This hotel is also within a 30 minute drive... More

Quaint. No view as one might expect and the temper pedicure beds are hot for a couple. The staff is friendly and there are good eats close by. Parking was not too difficult. Easier if you have a compact.

Clean, very accommodating staff, free breakfast! Can't beat the location. If I had to nitpick there was no closet or bathtub in my room, and there's not a lot of parking. For the price, I don't consider any of those thing to be a deterrent. I would definitely stay here again!

This is an old-school hotel one block from the beach. It had a relaxed family-vibe with towels, boogie boards, games, etc available to borrow in the lobby. There is also a courtyard area with patio table/chairs and a rooftop area with couches, so there are good hang-out locations. Downside: beds and bedding weren't comfortable. The carpeting felt dirty and the... More

My family and I stayed at Ocean Surf Inn & Suites for two nights in June 2016. I learned about the property online and was surprised at the reasonable rate based on its proximity to the beach and compared to the other hotels in the area. I typically stay at moderately priced hotels (Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, etc.). It’s... More

This small hotel has large rooms, friendly management, continental breakfast, free parking with many places to eat nearby. A neat place to enjoy the beach and surrounding cities of Long Beach and Huntington Beach

This is my personal lowest level of budget accommodation, clean, convenient to a beach, but sketchy maid service and lousy breakfast. Good reception staff and lots of loan items available for the beach.

We loved this place! Other hotels in the same price range were blocks away from the beach and had terrible reviews, but this one is a terrific find! It is an easy walk to the beach, separated only by a narrow street and row of small beach houses. I loved the ambience of the place: cute and homey with a... More

We were on the third floor - with 2 queens - clean, friendly, helpful, great little local place to stay! - large community patio with great seats for reading, or resting while watching and listening to the surf. Cute little areas on 2nd and 3rd floor for reading, snacking. Great little breakfast - free! - Deb in the front office... More
