“Perfect place to relax ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for 3 nights for some R and R during the middle of our driving holiday and was pleasantly surprised at just how much I enjoyed it there. You're slap bang on a private beach with sun loungers and if that's not for you, there are more around the heated pool or on the lawn.

Everyone we spoke to was friendly and chatty, the room had lots of space and it was only a short drive to restaurants and shopping. The whole complex was clean and well maintained with staff out in the early hours tidying the place up. Reception has beach towels they can loan you and I even learnt how to play shuffleboard with the equipment they lend out for free!

The only issue we had was with the lock on our door; it wouldn't lock or unlock from time to time. However.... This was no problem for the maintenance man and he replaced the lock right away dropping all his other jobs. Great service all round, and thank you!

Stayed for 3 nights at the Surfcomber on the Ocean. Great location and had everything we were looking for. The room was spacious and had a microwave and frige. The bathroom looked like it was just done over. Great pool and being on the ocean was my favorite part of the place. It is not huge which made it easy to get around from the parking lot to the beach. The staff is very friendly. Just a short drive to Rt.28 for shopping and many restaurants. Looking forward to another vacation at the Surfcomber.

Room Tip: For the extra money next time will get a room with a private balcony.

Stayed for a week at the Surfcomber on the Ocean. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in your own efficiency unit, making your own meals by shopping at the close by grocery markets, or walking down the beach to the local restaurant, this is the place. Love the modern furniture, fridge/micro combination appliances, maximizing the space. The hotel offers outstanding customer service from the front desk staff, ground maintenance staff keeping everything perfect, and updated exceptionally clean updated rooms. Best room brochure I have ever seen and if you still need more information, just ask. Take your choice, the room 10 feet from the ocean, or a very short walk to the heated pool. The lounge chairs overlooking the beach, don't disappoint. The pictures on their website are true and up-to-date. Excellent location for 10 minute trip to Hyannis, and centrally located for all parts of Cape Cod. Dreaming of that cape cod grass flowing beaches, quiet, warm waters, this is perfect for a couple or family. Thanks to this hotel for keeping the hotel small, intimate and the cape cod styling.

Room Tip: The oceanfront suite is spectacular, hanging over the ocean. Such a variety of rooms or efficiencie...

Thanks for yet another awesome trip to Cape Cod. The staff is always great, rooms are great. Loved all the remodels/updates you did over the winter. I think the only complaint I could ever have about Surfcomber is that you are not open in the winter. I'd love to come to Cape Cod for Christmas sometime and stay at Surfcomber.

Spent Friday and Saturday night here between two weeks of work travel. Totally recharged my batteries at this affordable beach front property.
I had an ocean view with a private balcony, which is what I need. No sharing of space. Kept the window open and fell asleep to the sound of waves rolling to shore.
My room was very spacious with mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. And very clean. This is a privately run hotel, family style. The grounds were perfectly groomed with young people out early in the morning preparing for the new day.
I hated to leave on Sunday morning. I will be back, with my husband next time.

Went for an overnight and stayed an extra. Super clean rooms and readily accessible beach. The staff is terrific and if there is need for assistance ( a faulty TV remote) a staff member will probably beat you back to your room and get everything programmed for you. Had a kitchenette and combine that with a 7 minute walk to a wonderful restaurant with take-out, and you're good to go. Beautiful, manicured grassy area, shuffleboard, and superbly maintained pool outside. Had room 26 on first floor. Heard the upstairs guests moving about.but no big deal. Bringing friends from Oklahoma to this hotel later this year.
