I can't fault the great views at Surfrider. Perched on the cliffs above the ocean, I felt like I was on a ship at sea. That's the #1 reason to select Surfrider.
*Insanely* good breakfast at the restaurant - razor clams with pancakes!
The aforementioned views.
Access to a great little beach.
Freakin' orcas jumping right out of the water!
Nice bar, also with the same amazing views.
Very nice staff.
Well, the rooms. The whole resort has seen its day, and the rooms aren't very great quality. But they're clean, and you get satellite TV and a fireplace ... and a deck.
Honestly, if the rooms were upgraded, I'd give this a much better review. I struggled with the star rating - it deserves four stars for all of the amenities in the Pro category, but the rooms pull the rating down. They're not bad, just really outdated. But most people would enjoy the location and the great food (amazing breakfast). The room prices are about average for that area.
I suspect that this resort will get replaced with a higher end hotel sometime in the next few years. This is the best prime real estate around. So if you prefer a more homey experience, stay there now. And go have the breakfast. I miss it already.
