“Fantastic family-friendly beach getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

Our family of five had a fantastic last minute visit at the Surfsand. Everything was perfect. From our flawless late night check in to our delicious departure snacks in the lobby. We enjoyed the many amenities at Surfsand. We had a 2 bedroom suite which worked out perfectly and the view of Haystack rock was solid. The beach was only a few minutes away and the kids enjoyed their complimentary buckets and shovels. A nice added perk is free meals for the kids (with adult purchase) at the nearby Wayfarer and Lumberyard. We also checked out the pool, which was great fun for all - the kids had a blast and it was the perfect temp. We will certainly be back again soon!

This place is wonderful. I was telling my husband that it makes you want to tip more because they don't nickel and dime you. They gave us a free up grade room, and of course we had the free movie and cookies and milk.

The unprepossessing exterior makes you think, "They're charging that much for this?" as you drive in, but the rooms have been made truly lovely. The bedroom had wonderful comfortable bedding, the bath was gorgeous, and the living room had gas fireplace, small refrigerator and equipped bar area, desk with free wireless internet, and huge windows and slider to private deck. Perched right above the sand with a close-up view of Haystack Rock, this is not the place for people worried about tsunamis! This is owned by the same people as the Stephanie Inn, and while that may be more picturesque, this is in a better location for walking into town to enjoy the many art galleries and gift shops. They do welcome dogs (only $15 more), and you can order room service meals in your room from their excellent restaurant, The Wayfarer. If you leave, you must not leave your dog in the room. Easy beach access is available.

We loved our stay. I loved the setup because i could go to sleep early and my fiance was in the separate living room watching tv and online racing. No feeling like you were disturbingthe other person. I must say that the view we had when entering our room was amazing. I think my boyfriend would be dissappointed if we stayed elsewhere and he's not even that fussy. And the yummiest warm cc cookies in the lobby in the evening.

I have no complaints not even lil niggly things.

I love this hotel: Excellent location, easy on the beach access (you don't have to hike down a hill side to get there), and pet friendly! It is just a short walk away from all the shops and restaurants. I bring my dog here every year and we have a blast soaking up the sun and ocean air. Staff have always been friendly, the rooms have always been perfect, and I have never had any issues. I cannot wait to come back again this summer!

I have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times and have not had a bad experience. The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean, and I love the big roomy bathrooms and showers. The front desk people are always super friendly. I love that they have fresh baked cookies in the afternoons. Dangerous/yummy. The other favorite thing about Surfsand is the Sunday Hot Dog Roasts on the beach, with a bonfire and s'mores fixing for later. Fantastic. One my my favorite memories. The price can be high, which is the only drawback. Worth the splurge if you can do it, though....

sincerely enjoyed my time here. Found the staff to be warm and genuine. The best part was the view from our 4th floor ocean side room. From bed we could watch the waves by the moonlight. We had the balcony door cracked a little so we could be lulled to sleep by the ocean sounds. That really made it for us. Bathroom was nice(especially the oversized tub). The bed was better than average. The internet reception was poor but functional for emails but not netflix. Who needs netflix when you have that ocean view though:) They also have a nice DVD collection. The secret to this place is making sure you go when its not to crowded and can get a good deal.

Room Tip: Higher the better. We found the 4th floor to be perfect. No noise and an incredible view.
