“Wonderful Place to Stay”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We have been staying here for numerous years now, and this is the best location to stay. We stay for 2 weeks so the kitchen is very helpful for long and/or short stays. The rooms are clean and well kept, whether it be an old one or a upgraded one, and all are oceanfront with a great view. The grounds surrounding the property are also well kept. The staff are wonderful. They are always very friendly and helpful. The location makes it easy to get to so many places very easily. This is the place to stay while on the cape

The hotel is older so the lobby is a bit run down, but the room have been upgraded, new paint, furniture, etc. The room is large and had a great little kitchen for longer stays. We found the room to be very clean and pretty. The hotel is built so that every room has an ocean view. The hotel is not far from Rt. 28 so to get to restaurants and other shops was very easy and convenient. We had a room on the 2nd floor so had a balcony versus a patio. We loved being able to sit and watch the moon come up over the water with a glass of wine on the balcony and the sun come up in the morning. We were able to go for a walk on the beach as access is just a few steps away. As has been noted, the cell signal is practically non-existent and there is no wifi but if you're there for a romantic weekend, that may be more of a benefit than a negative. We will definitely stay again.

Loved being able to walk right out to the beach, long stretch of sand in either direction. Rooms are updated with very useful kitchen. Only complaint is that wi-fi is not available in the rooms, just in hotel lobby, while my cellphone didn't work in the lobby but did in the room!

Close to shopping and tourism but the neighborhood is very quiet. Some sort of ventilation system in the room was way too noisy but the weather was mild and we could turn it off.

Would go back again

Good location on the beach, helpful staff, and a very fair price. The Motel is older with many rooms just recently up-dated, but all are in excellent condition. We have stayed there two year in a row at this point and will go back again.

Room Tip: Second floor has a better ocean view.

I had booked 3 king room at this hotel, when I got there they only had one room for me. o they wanted to move us around so they didn't lose your booking and the other booking they had... One of the staff was very terrible. Didn't care on what we had to say... Other can say in the review they had a good time in this hotel but for me was all bad since the start... So I don't recommend this hotel....

After reading the below reviews, I decided to take the chance with Surf & Sand Motel anyway... and I am so HAPPY I did!... I have to admit pulling up I was a bit nervous, the parking area (aka back of the motel) was lacking curb appeal and so was the check in desk..but as soon as we opened the door to our room, hubby & I smiled ear to ear while walking around checking out our room ... very clean, updated, kitchen stocked with all your needs to cook a simple meal, and the VIEW, awesome!! SCORE!!!! I also must mention that being from Jersey when you hear motel, you cringe, it must be a Jersey thang! lol! and for many, many years I would stay clear of motels due to this and only stay at Inns, Resorts or Hotels ..but after thoroughly reviewing hotels/inn/motels in cape cod, I came to the conclusion that cape cod motels look to be taken care of and this I found with Surf & Sands... I will no longer be a motel snob!.. Please note this is still not a hotel and shouldn't be compared to a hotel, for the price it is exactly what they state..a motel! you want a hotel or resort, then go pay more money for one! Our overall experience here for the 2 nights, 3 days was wonderful... the king room was large with a great kitchenette with granite counter tops, small fridge, microwave & cooking top (we didn't use this since we were only there a limited time, but it was clean!)... flat screen tv, mattress was a little hard (but everyone has different preferences on the ideal mattress)... bathroom was clean, offered soaps & hairdryer, and a heat lamp in the ceiling... the view from our patio was great & I am sure the second floor rooms are superb!...the pool was clean as well as the pool area... the beach, yes had some seaweed, more in the morning during low tide..but seriously when we walked up and down from our beach, we noticed that all the other beaches did too... the front desk was very pleasant, and also offered us chairs & towels for the beach... the cleaning lady was polite, and when asked gave us fresh towels right away.. even though this is obvious ,please NOTE if you want your room cleaned while staying, you need to put the door hanger out for cleaning service ( a traveler below, must haven't realized this due to their comment)... SKipper Chowder House right down the street is a must for clam chowder & lobster!...we will defiantly go back!

Room Tip: ask for a renovated room!!!

We stayed at the Surf and Sand last weekend. Great location on the beach in South Yarmouth. Short stroll down the beach to a beach bar/snack bar at resort next door. Beautiful grounds and views of Nantucket Sound. We had a two room suite, with a king bed in one room and 2 double beds in the other. Both rooms had a refrigerator, the larger room also had microwave and a two burner. Rooms have been recently renovated and were quite nice. We would return.
