Surfcaster Motel
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Melbourne Beach
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I had a great stay at the motel in November. I went to fish. Access to the beach was fantastic, just outside the door with no road to cross. The surf was towering, but that was not the fault of the hotel owners. :) Yes, the water was stinky, but that has to do with the municipal water supply and they can't do much about that. The rooms were very clean, and I liked the tile floors. That's the way to go at the beach. This is a 50s style Florida hotel, and if you go with a good attitude you will be pleased as I was. I grew up in Florida and knew what to expect. I was very happy with my stay at the beach and I'll be back sometime before too long when the Atlantic is more peaceful.

The Surfcaster isn't all its cracked up to be, My wife and I spent two nights there and yes while it is "So-So", we experienced other little problems. 1- No cold water in face bowl in bath. Faucet broken. Indications show apparently for a period of time 2- Electrical extension cords being used in place of hard wiring for the A/C and some light fixtures. 3-You have to make your own bed. No maid service. 4- Two small cockroaches on the bed were eleminated by the roomer. 5- I mentioned this to the manager and sort of received an attitude of "OH,WELL!!" about it.

Room Tip: For the $85.00 that paid, Go to a chain motel/hotel such as Marriott,etc

right on the beach this updated old florida style hotel is great to surf from during the day and watch turtles lay eggs at night. The rooms have tile floor since it was impossible to keep out all of the sand. Pizza joint attached to the Hotel was very good as well.

Room Tip: for the family 7 and 8nboth have kitchens

We stayed there for one night during spring break, that was terrible when we went in the bathroom, the tap water is stinky, didn't dare to use the water to brush our teeth. Can't really open the bathroom window, it was broken! Only have a quick shower, can't stand the smell. Although we closed the bathroom door when we sleep, we could still smell it, bed isn't comfortable, pillow is too small and thin, can't sleep well. Although it's close to the beach, but the room doesn't have ocean view, the room is very dark, no window.

The Motel is in transition with friendly and hospitable new owners. It is older, but very clean and reasonably priced. Situated on a beautiful private beach. With all the plans for updating by new owners this hotel will soon be a gem by the sea. Kind enough to bring extra towels and whip up a delicious pizza after hours.

At first we were a little worried cause we thought that all motels are a nightmare but we have to share with everyone that when we pulled up we were pleasantly surprised how nice and quaint the place looked and got even better when we were greeted at the office by Karen who let us check in early. We absolutely loved our stay there, Everyone knew it was our anniversary and went out of their way to make us feel so comfortable from the owner, Office, and the Restaurant which the food was amazing at Rosati's. Our Room was about the office, Suite #7, was really clean and the oceanview was amazing. If you are looking for luxuary go to the Hilton but if you are looking for good old florida charm and friendly service and down to earth people I recomment this little of hidden place right on the beach. Thanks everyone at Surfcaster for making our stay awesome. Hope to be back soon to visit and eat at Rosati's again..

This place was great. Off the beaten path, so not alot of folks fighting for space on the beach. Water and sand were beautiful. The pizza was pretty good. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Close to everything. We would definitely go back.

*Not sure what's up with the bad reviews- there were no bugs and the owners were very nice. Really glad I took a chance on this place!

Room Tip: The rooms above the office are definitely worth a few extra bucks!
