we have been going here for a few years and this is the best south yarmouth has to offer extremely quiet and the staff does what ever it takes to make your stay special - 5 stars is not enough where you go outside your room and 50 feet and you are in the ocean / thanks

We love this place! It is so stylish and chill, well appointed and hip without being a total scene like it's more famous neighbors the SLS and the Delano. The staff is wonderful, fun and helpful. Special shout out to Edwin and David at the beach, and Chase at the front desk who really made us feel like royalty.

This is a family run establishment which is top notch. The rooms are spacious and clean and newly renovated. The landscaping is beautiful with gorgeous flowers. The staff are extremely courteous and friendly. We go twice a year, once in June and once in October. We look forward to it all year long!

I have stayed many places on the cape, and this is the one never disappoints. The ocean view rooms often a beautiful view as well as privacy, the rates are reasonable, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I can't wait to go back!

We love the surfcomber. The staff are very nice and accomodating. The room is clean and spacious, though the bathroom a bit small. Can't wait until next year to walk on the beach and swim in the heated pool again.

We stayed over columbus day weekend. Location is great - right on the beach. Room was clean. However, we paid $20 extra per night to have a kitchenette in our room so that we wouldn't have to go out for dinner. The stove and refrigerator are VERY small. I tried to cook bread in the oven the first night. Set...

This hotel is a family run hotel and is in a very good location. We had a room that faced the ocean, however, there was a pool and fence in between us and that ocean view. I would say there are very few actual ocean front rooms here. The room we had was spacious and comfortable enough. The fact that...

Thank you for your review, Karin94947. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Ever since the town raised the height requirement for our pool fence a couple years ago, it has indeed cropped a bit off of your room's ocean view. We are looking into some good ideas to counter this issue and hope to resolve it soon. We...

Well, hello there, MarcaATL. Trip Advisor reviews come in all forms. Naturally we love the good ones, but we take the negative ones seriously and use them to make our hotel a better place. At times I disagree with some reviewers’ assessments, but I try to remain objective. You review, however, I must take issue with, as a number of...

Visited this small family run hotel a couple of years ago and it did not disappoint. If you are thinking of going to Cape Cod, the fall is a lovely time to visit.

Very nice hotel on the ocean front in a quiet, residential area. Room was very clean and comfortable. We toured all over Cape Cod from this location. The recommendation of restaurant within walking distance of the hotel was so nice after a long day in the car. Nice lounge chairs provided overlooking the beach. Enjoyed a beautiful sunrise!
