glad they are tearing this place down! overpriced for labor day weekend. gave us crappy room 112, on the end with the view being the stairway wall. Asked to be moved upstairs and they did. Bigger room, with a good view. Clean pool, no breakfast, just coffee. 248 for two nights in the dumpiest, well almost, dumpiest place i have ever stayed. Guy at the front desk was nice. Very small, one-way parking lot. hot shower, cold a/c.

I gave the place 1 star because it was so easy to cancel and leave once we saw our room and knew we had made a BIG mistake with this reservation choice. We went with our 2 kids, ages 6 & 8 for a weekend. The first HUGE turn off was that we had to walk through 4 other guests smoking/socializing right outside our room door into a smokey room that was extremely worn and dated. We did not feel safe or comfortable and for over $100 a night expected a much better arrangement. Fortunately, the front desk refunded our money immediately and tried to assist us in finding another location. We did at the wonderful Plaza Resort about 15 minutes away and well worth the extra $34 per night.

Room Tip: go somewhere else

we enjoyed our time there, we stayed 8 days in rm 107, my daughter and granddaughter stayed 5 days in rm 112 , the kids had a great time in the pool and on the beach (the beach is steps away from your room, the staff was great , the cleaning woman were awesome did a good job, and i even had the pleasure of meeting the manger all were very nice, never ran out of towels having kids that was important. if your looking for fancy mint under your pillow well your in the wrong place and i am glad you can pay that price. were a family who can only do something 1 time a yr and if it wasn't for surfs inn , we would be sitting on our front porch, this place is affordable for family's like us. we had a small problem with our burner and it was replaced in mins.. IF THEY DO CLOSE IT DOWN FAMILIES LIKE US WONT HAVE A PLACE TO STAY ,we cant afford no where else like this , thank u surfs inn .

Room Tip: rm 107 open your door the pool is right there , and beach a few feet away, our parking spot was 4 st...

The rooms are dated. But, that doesn't mean the staff aren't helpful and the place is kept clean, especially being on the beach and the sand that is tracked in. Couldn't ask for a more pleasant staff. Just need an update on the rooms. They'll regret tearing it down for condos. You get individual service. Wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Have been coming here for 8 years now.

Room Tip: The efficiency rooms are great. Don't have to worry about going out to eat. Have two burner coo...

I almost cancelled our reservation based on some of reviews. I am so glad I know better and didn't. Room 119 is clean and comfortable. Yes there are a few nicks in the furniture and things are a little dated but the location is the best I have ever stayed at. The staff is heplfull and polite. Each morning they are down cleaning the pool area and grounds. Maid service has been daily. Thanks to those who couldn't overlook small imperfectons and stayed elsewhere. It left more space tor us and the other great people we have met to enjoy the beach.
