located on the beach, the owners will help you to appreciate the city and the history, not only the beach to visit. the rooms are on the way to be renewed and the surfing style is very nice. I would go back very soon

This hotel had everything we were looking for... price, cleanliness, close to the beach, shopping and eating and something with a local feel. The Surf Inn is very unique and close to all attractions. We didn't use our rental car one time after we checked in. Owners are very sweet and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Look at the pics and choose your thing.

Dear 702daniel,
Thank you so much for your kind review.
You are right in that we are blessed to be so close to all the main attractions of Huntington Beach. With our free parking, our guests don't have to worry about in/out privileges or the extra cost of leaving the cars in parking lots while they enjoy a day at the beach or at other establishments like restaurants or shops.
We hope that you will have the opportunity to revisit, especially after our recent remodel.
Please take care!

I took my 15 year-old daughter and her friend to Huntington Beach for 5 days before school started this fall. Our goal was to have a worry-free beach getaway. This Inn was a great solution. With its location right across the street from the beach, and a close walk to anything we needed, we were very satisfied. The managers were very attentive to our needs. Julie noticed one of the girls got a nice sunburn early in the trip an offered us a bottle of Aloe that had been left by a previous guest. We were also provided with beach towels. We purchased boogie boards and left them at the Inn for future guests to use. It was a fun trip with lots of memories.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 6. 2 beds. Not much of a view, but that was fine, as we didn't plan on spend...

Room Tip: I loved number 9 we have stayed in all of the rooms but 9 was my favorite!!

We were completely disgusted from this hotel. From the beginning, we were thrown off by the owners who lives in the office with their several Birds. The room cleanliness was disgusting. The comforter was filthy; had dirt and smelled of dirty hair, and the bed was not even fully made. The closet doors were off the hinges, and the lights in the room did not work making this dreary room even more depressing. When I walked into the bathroom, there was some type of white scum coming from the ceiling leaking onto the green wall that was painted over numerous times. The shower was black, and the TOWELS!! They were supposed to be white, but they had several stains on them making us not even want to touch them! Not only was this place gross, we felt very unsafe. We booked to stay here 3 nights... we left after the first night taking a loss and went to the beautiful Shorebreak Hotel. I advise anyone who is wanting to stay here, please dont! The owners were very strange and un-accommodating. Do NOT stay here!

Dear 97unknown,

Your comments illustrated how difficult it can be in our industry to find something "just right". Indeed, it seemed like the reviewer right before you stayed in the same room and had a very positive experience with his quarters and with the managers.

We certainly are not happy that you did not have the same great experience as most of our guests have had over the years. We do appreciate this opportunity to review your comments in our ongoing quest to make the Inn the best it can be to serve our guests' travel and lodging needs.

In the future, if your travel takes you to Huntington Beach, we would love to have the opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Please take care,

L Han

This place is a little gem. Don't book a fancy hotel and pay more, this is clean, fun and right on the beach. We booked Room 9 (King) and it was panelled with reclaimed wood and had a great vibe. Waking up to the ocean views is great, and the it's location is about two blocks from Main Street (go eat at the Sugar Shack for breakfast). Julia was so lovely and funny. Thanks a lot for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Room 9 (King) - it was awesome!

This funky renovated hotel was great. Loved the decorations. I got a very good night's sleep, the owners were super nice, and it was just a few blocks from downtown. Only complaint is that they didn't have conditioner or lotion for toiletries, so be sure to bring your own.
