“Very good room, excellent view!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

The resort provided us a room on a cliff overlooking the ocean with a private balcony. The gas fireplace is nothing much, but the views and the access to the beach was great! The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Also, the adjoining restaurant serves excellent food, both for breakfast and dinner, at a very reasonable price.

My wife and I booked a room for her parents to get away for their anniversary. When I booked the room I had Surfrider charge my Visa for the full amount of the two night stay so everything was ready for my in-laws. My in-laws checked out the website and were very excited about the nice looking rooms in the pictures. They arrived and checked in only to be asked for payment. Luckily they took the confirmation papers and credit card receipt I received in the mail. They went to their room to find it was nothing like the pictures from the website. It had no windows that opened to enjoy the summer ocean breeze and the balcony was shared via a hallway that opened up to the room next to them. A couple of days after they checked out I found I was charged a second time for the full visit. I am still trying to get a hold of the one and only person there who can credit my Visa back for the second full charge. Needless to say, our family will not revisit this place.

My husband and I stayed here for the first time for our 10th anniversary. We weren't overly excited about the last 3 hotels we stayed at for previous anniversaries, but were immediately pleased when we arrived at Surfrider this year. We walked into the lobby and were warmly greeted. The lobby was welcoming and clean. Loved the view we saw of the ocean when we walked in the door of our room and I loved the flowers in bloom along the cliff. The room was very clean. We were surprised to see a shared door to the deck, but our deck was fairly private with partitions and the neighbors were nice and we actually only saw them once. We fully enjoyed our relaxing time on the deck and going down to the beach and wish we had stayed longer. We are coming back next year.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms can hear foot steps from upper level rooms, shared access door to deck, but priva...

The Surfrider is now owned by Clarion Hotels and as such happens so do some staff changes. My first issue was the polite lecture about no smoking in the rooms.....I said we don't smoke...we were still told what would happen if we did...gotta love those subtle threats when you check-in. The room....here I go..... the phone line/jack was cut because of the new carpet, the lights above the bathroom sink did not work, it took two of us to pull the water faucet on to take a shower, there were three end tables and two occasional chairs in the living area, no couch, the murphy bed that was there had been removed with a half has paint job on the wall where it had stood, and the wi-fi on both of our lap tops did not work in the room. So we went to the front desk to test our lap tops and let the lovely lady behind the counter know our frustration. She was very polite and was already aware of the issues, and she did give us the managers card. Hmmmmm....since it was the 4th of July weekend we assumed there were no other rooms to switch to. In addition as we continue to test our lap tops in the lobby to try to trouble shoot a signal, not 1 but 2 others came in to check out....one because of mold issues and the other because of similar issues in there room like ours. I love the location, I love the view, the rest/bar staff are great. There was no possible way to enjoy the suite we were in, the occasional chairs were very uncomfortable, we brought in the Adirondack Plastic chairs from the deck to sit on, we had friends stop by to visit and we had to leave the room and go elsewhere to be comfortable to visit. So, we won't be back.

Room Tip: Section 4 is the most updated with king beds. Perfect for couples and best rooms there.

This is one of those little out-of-the-way gems on the coast, situated above Fogarty State Park with easy access to the beach via stairs. To the north is Lincoln City and to the south is Depot Bay. Most rooms have a great view and balconies/patios to enjoy it. Add a pool for the kids and it's hard to miss. Only drawback is that the place is in need of some updating. It's starting to look a little worn past the point of "charming". It was recently taken over by Clarion, which can hopefully put some money into it without losing the character.

Room Tip: Get a second-story room for a better view.

Took a few days off, needed some beach time. The Surfrider Resort hotel was "okay" but the ocean views made up for any problems we had. This is the only place I know where you can enjoy a great sunset all from your hotel bed. In this case, LOCATION, LOCATION paid off.

We stayed here last summer and chose to stay again, because we liked it so much. The restaurant is still lacking a little, a tad expensive and not the greatest quality. but we did only eat breakfast and can't judge lunch or dinner. But the room was clean and spacious and we could watch the ocean from our balcony. We could walk right down to the tidepools. We also had more family staying in the two bedroom suite and it had a living room large enough to fit us all for games and hot cocoa. The stairs to the beach would be tricky for kids and my 87 year old parents couldn't use them.

Room Tip: all of the rooms would be good
