I stayed at the Surfcomber a couple of times and both times found the rooms and grounds to be very clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the location is great - right on the ocean and convenient to the center of South Yarmouth restaurants and shops. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a...

We had a great time at Surfcomber- the rooms are very clean, the grounds are beautiful, and the ocean is right outside your door. We went during the end of Sept so no crowds- we had the beach to ourselves- though it was raining almost the whole time we were there, which could explain the lack of people. We had...

Hello jsbruno, Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Surfcomber. September is a really great time to visit the Cape. You never know when a rainy week might hit the North East but you can always be certain the Cape will be much more relaxed and affordable in September. We apologize for...

Rooms and grounds are manicured daily. Any cleaning, electronic or room needs are immediate response. Family oriented. Usually, unit is quiet by 9 PM . One time had loud group in a room. Called and quick response and group was existed next day. Unfortunely, places like this are starting to become extinct due to time-share operations.

We found this place to be nearly immaculate inside and out. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The huge draw back for us was they allow smoking. This is a family oriented place and why they allow smoking is beyond my comprehension. My husband has a heart condition and cannot be around smoke, Everytime we went outdoors, or even...

Just stayed 2 nights with extended family. It is a truly lovely place - clean, great family pool, super ocean access and kind, friendly staff. Yes, rooms are simple but who spends time in the room? You have all that you need here and price is right! Would definitely go again!

It is anice that its on the beach but it is very old looking and more of a motel style. The pool is a bit small, also some of the rooms are very small, but overall not a terrible stay for the location.

First time staying here. We've stayed in many hotels on the Cape. Definitely a hidden gem! Same price as most oceanfront hotels but nicer accommodations. Immaculate. Friendly staff. Good size rooms with full kitchen. The only issues I found which weren't bad but just better amenities. Larger tv, providing beach chairs, new mattresses. Otherwise great hotel. We'll definitely be back!

The hotel is clean, lovely, and beautifully situated. The only problem is that they allow people to listen to music on the beach. Total downer being forced to listen to country music (which I cannot stand) all week, played by a large family group who refused to lower their obnoxious music, mixed in with a dash of dance music being...
