A place to rest your head...

by Lori W on 27 Jan 2017

The Surf Motel was a clean, no frills place to sleep and have free parking. The pillows were very thin, and there was no iron or ironing board in the room. Make sure you bring a major credit card as they do not accept debit cards for room deposits which was not stated on their website ( necessitating a 2:00 am ATM scavenger hunt in after arriving from a delayed flight). It was fine for a quick night passing through.

Perfect for my needs

This isn't the Ritz, but it isn't squalor either! I was honestly pleasantly surprised at the room's condition and amenities.

Which to me was worth it to get out of the torrential downpour I arrived in.

A motel like any other

by Christianss on 22 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Decent rooms, we had one with two queen size beds. It's like any motel really. I love the location and district. But don't bet on the breakfast, go out and eat a real breakfast. Plus for parking and helpful staff.

Not entirely sure why this place has such a low rating. Prime position for plenty of bars and restaurants in the Marina district. Even next to an iHOP if you need an early start!

Only moan would be that the towels were too small more my hugely muscular figure…. We stayed in room 210, which is essential right at the back, no noise fr...

Average motel price nothing special

by Alon G on 19 Oct 2016 (Friends Traveller)

So we stayed here for 3 nights, desk was very nice getting us, we got the suite for normal price room was big. Few things annoyed me, they didn't switch the bed covets for the bed one night, the wi fi..don't count on it fell few times but it's fine, parking was full every time I came only 1 spot was available and the motel wasn't fully booked so a bit weird, I recommend not putting this place as your first option but if this what you got you'll do fine.
