Heater was not working when we arrived. We called at 1015pm after returning from dinner and front desk did not answer. Heater fixed per request Saturday morning. Saturday morning housekeepers did not clean coffee pot or refill coffee station. Toilet was a size good for a small child. Very very low to the floor. Difficult for a 5'7' person with...

Very nice for a good price. The wifi is not so good. The room is very clean and the bed is great. The restaurant next to it is nt my cup of tea. Would definitely come back in this motel. The staff is friendly.

We stayed for 2 nights . It was very clean and the people who worked were so kind . And we went to eat at the big surf restaurant next door and we got a discount since we were staying at the silver motel. It rained the whole weekend also but we still enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at the Silver Surf Motel for a couple of days in early January and selected the motel not only because of its moderate cost but also because of its indoor pool and hot tub. While the room was very decent for the price, we were disappointed because neither the pool nor the hot tub was clean. We refused...

We arrived at the Silver Surf Motel after a harrowing drive down the PCH in a dreadful storm, and it provided a welcome respite from the wild wintery weather. We had double queen beds in our spacious and clean rooms, which featured modern decor, a good-sized fridge and a microwave. The indoor heated pool was great for my kids. The...

Attempted to stay here new years weekend. The manager (first his name was Miguel, then later said his name was Paul) checked us in to our room. At first glance it was a nice room. King bed, fireplace, etc. Had a balcony and you could see the ocean off in a distance. We noticed the floor was dirty, weren't TOO...

We had two rooms for one night in winter. Both rooms were exact what you can expect for the investment. Extras are the television, fridge, coffeemachine and coffee and a magnetron. I had my doubts with the gas heater (CO), but it was in good shape. In many motels one of the room is re-arranged for the breakfast. Here you...

Dirty, expensive. Rude check in person... We often stay in "mom & pop" type places, so are used to older facilities without lots of amenities. This place was grimy from lobby to pool to room. The photo on web site was misleading- torn dirty carpet. finger prints all over bed & cabinet. Got a negative vibe the minute we walked...
