    We stayed on a Saturday night and had to pay over 200 Dollars. Rooms were not well cleaned. On of the cushions was really dirty. TV size and quality was poor. Breakfast was OK. Parking right in front of the door.

    We had a great time. Dog friendly close to the beach. At little overcast in the mornings. The front desk was helpful with local information and Kash the Front Desk Director was great in helping us too ;)

    I have never noticed, i generally stay there when i run up to go Abalone diving, so a fancier place is not really needed. The Surf is clean, not overly stuffy, fits my needs for a hit shower, ckean bed. and a nice rest stop.
