“Great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I love the Sunset Surf Motel. It is no frills, but is right on the beach! Rooms are clean and comfortable, staff are helpful and friendly. It's a great place to stay in a great town! And, it's pet friendly!!

My husband and I stayed at the Sunset Surf Motel with our 2 large dogs. We booked a room on the second floor with a fireplace and a kitchenette. The rooms are a bit dated, but very clean and most importantly, dog friendly. The view of the ocean from our room, as well as access to the beach could not be beat. We will be staying here the next time we feel like a quick trip to the coast.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have floor to ceiling sliding glass doors without screens that span the wi...

My wife and I stay here for most of our beach trips. It's cheap, friendly, clean, and it's hard to get any closer to the beach, which is also friendly and clean (and cheap). The beds are a bit on the saggy side, and the furniture is a bit worn, but the units with kitchens are well stocked and the water in the shower is hot and plentiful. Some units are pet friendly, for an extra fee. There's a pool, but I've never used it. It can get a little noisy with big families hanging out on the second floor walkway and little kids running around, but what the heck, you're at the beach!

Room Tip: We like the second floor over the office.

We stayed for three days in the Budd Bldg and had a wonderful time. Took Grandma, the kid and the dog with us and all were comfortable with an extra sleeper room. The kitchen was well equipped with all the cooking utensils we needed. They are stocked with nonstick pans (FYI).
The staff is super friendly and the maids efficient and friendly.
This place is all about the view and being close to the beach. We had campfires and sandcastle building, kite flying the works right outside our door!
The beds could use an update but were tolerable. We will be back.

Large room ( in Budd bldg.) with private bedroom and full kitchen...comforatable beds...perfect location and view...balcony...fireplace...INCREDIBLE weather ( OK, they had no control over that but it really made the stay amazing). I would not consider staying anywhere else.

Just stayed for one night, could have stayed longer easily. With this place its all about the view and location, because you are right across the street from the beach, and our room had a great ocean view. The hotel is somewhat older, but updated, and had a nice kitchenette which is hard to find. The room was clean and comfortable, and we will stay here again.

The room we stayed in was directly under the stairs and across from the ice maker, so there was constant traffic that kept our dog barking quite a bit. Also, employees smoked right outside of our door. I'm guessing the stay would have been fantastic if our room was somewhere else in the complex. The location if the hotel can't be beat and it's nice that it's pet friendly. Also, the rates were reasonable. Just make sure you're not in room 17!
