Surf Lodge and Pub
Reviewed May 9, 2010

We stayed here New Year's Eve. The room was immaculately clean; the bed was fabulously comfortable, with very good linens. The view of the ocean is anazing. Nice touches, like good coffee, ceramic cups, etc. The restaurant is very good, and service in all areas is warm and professional. Obviously, the building is old--bathroom tiny--but that is all part of the island experience. My only complaint would be that all interior spaces are very dark.

Reviewed November 26, 2008

There is certainly more bad than good with this place. As the other review states, it is actually very old and dingy, not at all what you expect when you see the website pictures.However, although the rooms and bathrooms are very small, ours was quite clean and as the balcony overlooked the ocean, quite charming. Would not want to stay more than one night though. Must say to their credit, the sleep was awesome, best ever. The mattress was so comfortable and the bedding heavenly, a light, fluffy, European style, warm duvet. And...when away from home, one really is buying the bed and sleep as much as the room, so that counts for something. They really need to work on the ambience though. The restaurant was great. Good service and food and wine were terrific. Check in and out service for the room was terrible, hard to find anyone. So, if you want great food and a comfy sleep and do not need to spend much time there, it is a decent bet.
