This charming little hotel was the perfect base for us to explore the lovely beach towns of Orange County. Located between the PCH and beach road just north of Huntington Beach, our balcony room gave us a partial view of the gorgeous Pacific, with beach access just steps across the quiet palm tree-lined road. The Ocean Surf Inn oozes that...

Great price for the hotel and the room was neat and very nice. The only issue was there was construction going on on our floor and that was pretty loud and obnoxious and when we turned on the jacuzzi in our room, some black stuff came out but it cleared away. The staff was very kind and overall I would...

I am so sorry that you got caught up in our construction. With this rain we unfortunately had a few rooms get flooded and the repairs were needed immediately. Please check us out again - we should be done by the end of this month! I appreciate the kind words despite the noise.

We stayed for two nights when visiting Huntington Beach in early November. The place was easy to find. Check in was quick and smooth. The room we got was specious and clean, bed was comfortable. We enjoyed free breakfast on a roof terrace. For our beach stay we could borrow beach towels and beach chairs, which was a great bonus....

Our recent stay at Ocean Surf Inn and Suites was delightful. We were only one street away from Sunset Beach and the hotel had a great selection of items we could borrow to take to the beach with us including beach chairs and towels, buckets and spades for the kids, balls to play beach volleyball with, bodyboards ect... They also...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. You are right about the doors though. We're working with different manufacturers on how to make that better. If you have any ideas let us know. We'll look forward to you coming back and staying with us again.

This property shows the soul of huntington beach. Friendlyness. Calm. Laid Back.

This is my favorite place to stay when I visit my parents in Orange County. It's close to their home, and a block from a great beach. I love to walk from Sunset to Huntington Beach in the morning, when it's not too crowded and the surfers haven't left yet. The hotel is well finished and furnished and clean and...

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...

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...

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.
