Stayed at the Huntington Surf Inn for my friends wedding recently and it was an absolutely great experience. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and it was very close to all the action on main street. The bars & restaurants were all very close. It was nice to wake up every morning and be able to walk out front and look at the ocean. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to enjoy Huntington beach.

Dear 8ronjon,
What a great pleasure to have had the opportunity to host your friend's wedding party.
The entire staff of the Inn truly appreciates your kind comments and misses your affable presence on our deck, especially during the early quiet moments of the morning.
Hopefully your travels will bring you back to the Inn soon. Best wishes for a great summer!

Staying at the Huntington Surf Inn to celebrate my 20th birthday was something I would never forget because of how awesome it was! Everything was convenient and walking distance for me and my friends who were staying over for the night. The beach, the pier and the main street we're all so close to the inn and the people at the front desk we're so chill and awesome! I would definitely come back to stay again soon!

Dear L0riAnn83,

Thank you so much for your recent visit. We are continuously looking for ways to improve the customer experience and to couple great service and creature comfort while maintaining the charms of being an authentic beachside lodging.
We appreciate the acknowledgment of our great location. Of note, one of the awesome hidden feature of the Inn is that our manager Danny grew up surfing in Huntington Beach and played football for the local highschool. He will be a great resource for all visitors for what to do on Main Street and other attractions in the area such as surf rentals etc.. that are all within steps of the Inn.
Thank you once again and we look forward to serving you on your next visit.

We stayed here a couple of years ago and came back this time. We noticed that the inn was repainted with a fresh sky blue and gray color. It was nice because it matched the blue ocean across the street. Loved the fact the beach is right across the street for our early morning walks . Service at the front desk was professional when we checked in and our room was clean. We will be back again this summer!

Room Tip: Keep bottles of water the mini refrigerator to keep it cold

Dear KDebson,
Thank you so much for your return visit to the Inn and for noticing our new colors and complementary water bottles.
We have recently refreshed the Inn with enhancements to not only our facilities but also to our amenities. In addition to complementary Wi-Fi and covered parking, we have added Arrowhead water bottles in the room, 250 thread count linen starting in July, and higher end toiletries.
We are also going Green, with efforts to improve water conservation and improve our carbon footprint.
All these changes have been made with one goal in mind: Your satisfaction in your lodging choice. We really want you to be proud of your association with the Inn, and look forward to serving you again this summer.

To be honest we were disappointed. We had high hopes given the many positive reviews here but the reality was a pretty drab Cagney & Lacey motel type of place. Nothing wrong with that but we'd gotten the impression it was something more?

The gentleman that checked is in had clearly been enjoying a drink as he asked me 3 times the same question in between stumbling around the reception area. Room was very noisy (road and old fashioned window rattler air con unit) and bed was, well, awful actually. Oh and check out took an age.

This all sounds terrible and it's not meant to. I've stayed in far worse - we just had perhaps high expectations. Great location though.

Location, location, location! This was my first trip to SoCal and I wanted to stay a stone's throw from the beach. Great location!! with a hip vibe....definitely not like so many generic chain hotels out there. The owner was onsite visiting the property during our stay and was clearly very committed to delivering excellent customer service. My room was very clean and comfortable and I had a great few days enjoying the beach and exploring this charming area. I am already planning my next trip back to Huntington Beach and will definitely stay here again....it's a great value for fun and funky, cool and comfy.
