Our family enjoyed our stay at the Surfcomber. The room was relatively small, but quiet and clean. The staff were friendly, the pool heated, and the beach area not crowded despite it being a weekend in July. It's centrally located in South Yarmouth so it's near Hyannis and all the restaurants and shops spread across Yarmouth, but be prepared for a 45 minute or more drive to Chatham and beaches beyond that area, depending on traffic.
The only drawbacks are:
- They quote the rate as double occupancy and then charge $10 extra per child. So if you have two kids with you, the daily rate will be $20 above the listed room price. I've never had a hotel charge extra for two kids before in a room with two double beds.
- We booked a regular room, which indicated an ocean view from a shared balcony. What this really means is a room off the wing perpindicular to the beach and you can (sort of) see the ocean from the walkway in front of all first floor rooms. But in their defense, the ocean is literally steps from that walkway so you don't have to go far to enjoy an ocean view. And if you get a room on second floor, the view is better. However, they state that kids under 8 aren't allowed to stay on the second floor.
