Stayed in room 132, clean and updated. Comfortable bed and large bathroom for the size of the room. No A/C in the room but a large heater was present. The windows open wide and the room was cool after the ocean breeze started coming in. The grounds are well maintained and the staff are friendly.

I wasn't expecting fantastic things from this motel as it's very inexpensive, but in the event it was a bit too basic for my taste. The rooms are fairly noisy - you can hear people walking around upstairs, and they're not as clean or well equipped as I'd have liked - there was a large squashed insect on the ceiling...

This stay was a one-night stop on our drive down the Pacific Coastal Highway in September. We had just completed a very expensive few days in San Francisco and wanted a place to rest and recoup a bit of our budget. The Silver Surf met the bill - it is just across Highway 1 (an easy walk) from an excellent...

Pros: The room was clean and beds and blankets are comfortable (although a bit on the firm side). Another good thing I liked about this hotel was its vicinity to Hearst Castle, it was quite, temperature was perfect and a large lawn area in the middle, which is a excellent if you're traveling with pets. Cons: However, for the price...

I don't even know where to start with this one. My girlfriend and I have stayed at a number of motels on highway 1 driving from SF to LA and this is by fay the WORST! Firstly, they advertise a swimming pool, well I don't class green dirty water as a swimming pool. It looked awful. The room where the...

On our trip up the coast Hearst Castle was on the list of things to do. Silver Surf is really close to the castle, there are other places there to stay but we chose this Motel based upon other reviews as well as the rate. They have a nice courtyard that was dog friendly, and it was clean. The room...

I'm going to get the cons out of the way which is the wifi even though it says you are connected it never worked and no cell service until you are in the front parking lot which is normal for all the hotels on the inland side of the highway. I don't mind not having cell service but others may...
