We've been staying here on our visit to Seaside for the past four years. It's clean, the owners treat you like family, and you can't beat the view from the Ocean View room's balcony. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

This has been the fourth year in a row that my friend and I have stayed there, the last 2 in the front suite. It's worth the money with your own balcony right over the boardwalk and with a great view of the beach and ocean. It's always been clean and the owners treat you like family. I couldn't imagine...

From the second we stepped in the hotel, we knew it was going to be a horrible stay. The people who manage the Sand and Surf are some of the meanest, heartless, inconsiderate people I've ever encountered in a business. 5 minutes after we gave them the ridiculous 750 for the room we attempted to get our money back because...
