I stayed here with my family from 7/12 - 18 in the direct oceanfront room, 1st floor. I'm giving this hotel 4 stars because it could have been cleaner, the rooms need to be updated, especially the decor, and the facilities (laundry room, restroom) need major repairs and cleaning. Other than that, staff were very friendly and very attentive. The view of the ocean was amazing!!! I like that I could get up early, put my stuff on the beach and no-one messed with it when I returned hours later. The pool is small but it was clean and maintained well. The 2 burner stove worked well but it only works with flat metal pots and pans; if there is any texture to the bottom, or it's not metal, it won't work. I found out the hard way but staff provided extra pots/pans and I had a few of mine that did work. I was able to make a huge spaghetti dinner for 6 of us and it turned out yummy! Overall, we had a GREAT time and look forward to returning next Summer!

I would never stay here again. Upon arrival they had told me that my balance has increased because they were charged with a tax increase. the manager at the end did remove the increase but it should not have occurred. They should just take care of instead of having us pay for it. the next thing was that when getting inside the room the shampoo/conditioner and body wash did not have levers in order to be used and then I spoke with someone regarding this it just seemed like they did not care and were going to look at it at their convenience, it would not have gotten done in a timely fashion if i was not insistent. The shower door would not close. The floor seemed unbalanced. it felt like you were going to fall. their parking spots were scattered and they were not clear as far as what spaces were for the hotel and which were not. the office closes at 8pm so if we needed something there was no one there who can help. they claimed they had a bbq area which in fact it was just a little charcoal grill so if more than one family had to use it it would not be possible. the room was very old and dirty. looked like the owner just kept patching up holes. the bathroom was beyond gross with mold on the ceiling and no covers for the light fixtures and holes in the ceiling having wires exposed. they did not even provide blankets for the bed, only sheets. another thing was that it was not sound proof, heard footsteps and noise all around us. overall it was a very disappointing experience and would never go again.

The staff was very friendly - no office coverage in the evening, but they have a security guard at night who is super friendly. Not idea for large groups who like to hang out in the evening - we were told we were loud and had to hide out in a room with a garage door rather than sit but the pool. Our room was on the second floor and the noise above from guests walking woke us up all different times - annoying! No elevator, they do have a dumb waiter, when it works. The common areas could use a good cleaning! The rooms were nice - could of been cleaner upon arrival, but I've seen way worse! If I were to return, I would not pay the extra from oceanfront. No balcony. The ocean view rooms were larger anyway!

There were many pluses about this hotel, where I stayed for 2 nights. Certainly the price was right. I also found it very quiet - I heard nothing from the street or another room. My room was nicely renovated and I liked that they had soap dispensers (eco) not individual shampoos. Loved having a kitchenette with real dishes. I had a side ocean view, which was lovely to look at. The only real downside is that my room was not terribly clean - the floor needed a good vacuum or scrub and there was visible dirt on the floorboards and ceiling fans.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Surf Club. The staff at the front desk were helpful, courteous and friendly. Our room was furnished well and the bed and pillows comfortable. We loved the table and chairs placed right near the floor to ceiling windows that made up the corner of the room. We could look at the ocean as we ate. The location is good and less built up and commercial than further up Rte. 1 but we were close to lots of stores and restaurants. I liked the ocean view the best and hearing noise from a couple of other rooms the least.
