This chic surf lodge is absolute heaven! We came here for a family surf weekend to celebrate our son's 26th birthday. They have great selection of boards for guests to enjoy so you can leave yours at home! I couldn’t get enough of the gorgeous, light-filled, airy, coastal modern decor. Every room in the hotel has an amazing ocean views so you can't go wrong choosing a room. We had no desire or need to leave this heavenly place all weekend. We enjoyed all our meals, lounging time and epic views on the rooftop bar. During our January weekend stay, comfy blankets, fire pits & outdoor heaters kept us cozy & warm while we enjoyed the ocean views and deliciously prepared meals. The staff is so friendly & welcoming. Also, great, fast wifi throughout hotel. It was the perfect luxurious California weekend experience! We can't wait to visit the Surfrider again soon :)

Thank you so much for such beautiful feedback from a beautiful family. We loved seeing you surf every minute of every day! The way life should be at The Surfrider. Hope you tracked down the beds and, if not, you'll just have to come back sooner or at least for the next birthday. xo

This hotel is relatively new and therefore, every detail is immaculate. The room was incredibly clean, bright and quiet, the staff was very kind and helpful and the beds were cozy. The design of the property captures the essence of Malibu at its best. It's also further down the coast in Malibu so much less busy than other areas.

Just setting people's expectations -- this is a motel and it's across a busy road from the beach. That said, you wouldn't be able to tell at all once inside the room. It was like our own little Oasis.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the parking lot and while it didn't have the view, I'm guessing it's quieter than the rooms facing the road/ocean.

Thank you, Melissa!!! This is so great. So glad you loved the hotel! PCH/Surfrider Beach is obviously prime Malibu location and classic California but with that, comes some traffic during the day... so, I'm excited you noticed how quiet the rooms have been made :) The doors to the private balconies are triple pane glass and, insider tip, the black out curtain (behind the linen) curtain are design to soak up any left over noise that may make it in :) Hope we see you back here soon and, thanks again. xo

Can’t beat it! From the food, to the location, rooms, and amenities.. The rooftop is incredible and the friendly and hospitable staff make it all the more amazing. Spent two nights here during our baby moon and can’t wait to come back! Thank you Surfrider Malibu!

My husband and I stayed here twice in the month of December for a few nights layover on our way to/from Australia. We were absolutely delighted with this transformed property. With its creamy beige and grey interior tones, natural woods and hammocks, the Surfrider is a dream location for any traveler or for locals who need a chill weekend getaway. Would definitely recommend the Malibu suite! The staff is friendly and helpful, respectful of your privacy. The owners really care about your experience, and the food and drinks on the rooftop are splendid. We had both breakfast and dinner up top and had a hard time deciding if the view was better at sunrise or sunset. Easy to cross the street at stoplight intersection below to get to the beach and the pier. Even if you are not a surfer, it's great to watch them from this elevated spot. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Spring for an upstairs room looking out at the water. Well worth it!

Rooms are large, comfortable and very nicely decorated. The food is delicious and the restaurant/lounge on the terrace which offers a great view on the ocean is absolutely amazing.
The staff couldn’t be more friendly.
I can’t wait to go back.
