Reviewed 21 September 2008

We finally had a weekend away from the kids (our first in 2 1/2 years) so I booked the romance package.

We didn't arrive until 8PM and had an easy check-in. When we entered the room the items in the romance package were not in the room. I called the front desk and they said that they would bring them right down. I told them that we were going out for dinner and we would be back at 10PM.

We had an excellent dinner at Pier 101 and arrived back at 11PM and still no flowers or drinks. I called the front desk and she seemed suprised and said she would send it down right away. I told her that we were going to bed and that they could bring it after we left in the morning. She said that she would send down the dinner certificate and bring the rest in the morning. A janitor brought down the certificate 5 minutes later.

We left in the morning for our day trip and came back about 2PM. Still nothing. I finally went up to the front desk and asked for the manager. Steve came and spoke with me and I told him that I was pretty upset and explained the reasons why. He apologized and offered us free dinner at their restaurant and gave us half off of our room. Yea!

Besides the snafu the room was nice albeit very warm even with the windows open. The staff was very friendly and we will return in the future.

We stayed at the Surftides for two nights. We had a fourth floor room.

Good points: If you get an ocean view it is nice long beach
You can feed the seagulls from your balcony great fun
Reasonable rates
It is right on the beach and near the casino and shopping


Areas that could be better
Our room was very warm so we never used the fireplace and kept the sliding door open. This was with the heat turn off.

The front door dead dolt would not lock

The bathroom mirror has a bare bulb comming out of it like you may have in your garage. Pretty tacky

The pool is a concrete dome across the parking lot you you must run across it which when cool or wet is not fun to get to it.

It was OK but I would not return as I would spend more and stay at a bit nicer place. I do think there is a new owner Mr Cho? and he is trying to make improvements.

My family stayed at the Surftides on August 5th for one night. We had a total of 4 rooms for our family. The hotel was like a breath of fresh air, after a miserable Amtrak trip. The staff was very courteous, helpful and efficient.
Three of our rooms were double queen, on the third floor - parking lot level with a spectacular view of the ocean. The fourth room was on the first floor, down two levels and on a ledge overlooking the sand. Our balcony was right over the sand - just perfect. My mother, who is in a wheelchair, loved the fact that she could wheel out onto the patio or just sit in front of the large window and watch the ocean and her grandchildren playing in the sand. Despite other reviews, our patios were clean and pleasant but I would bet this is hard to maintain due to the all the seagulls floating around.
The hotel is going through some major renovation, but it made no impact at all on us or our rooms.
The rooms were pleasant and decent size. We liked the new ipod docking station/alarm clock as well as the nice tv.
The only ding I would add is the rooms could be a bit cleaner. The floor between the nightstand and the beds was not vacumed. Also, the towels are extremely small and old.
We ate at the Ki West that evening and everyone had great food and pleasant service. I loved the clam chowder - very rich and creamy - just the way I like it.
Pool was nice size but seemed a bit cloudy and not in the best shape.
All in all, I would definitely return and I think once they complete all scheduled renovations it will definitely be a premier hotel.

On our recent long trip, this was definitely one of our favorite hotels. The oceanfront room and view were great! The room was good size with a balcony (with 2 chairs) overlooking the ocean, a frig and microwave, and a dining table by the window. The beach was large and very nice, with access right at the hotel. The restaurant didn't open until 8am for breakfast (later than we would have liked), but had decent food and service, with very large portions and reasonable prices. We reserved the room online for a great price, and had confirmed a fireplace room (same price as a similar room without a fireplace), but weren't given a room with a fireplace. Since we hadn't planned on using it anyway, we didn't worry about it, but if this makes a difference to you, beware. (They appeared to be renovating some rooms, and those may have been the ones they were working on.)

Our stay at the Surftides was great. The check in was quick and the hotel staff member was friendly. We were given the room requested (top floor) without any problems. We were even early. The only suggestion I have is to have the hotel staff clean the deck and chairs every day or at least provide a roll of paper towels with the kitchenette so guests have something to wipe them down with. This hotel has a nice balcony which is rare for a hotel in Lincoln City but birds do come with the territory.The bedding was very nice in the king room we reserved and the carpet appeared fairly new. Also, we were given these great big fluffy bath sheets instead of skimpy bath towels which was a nice extra. Be sure to reserve online as there is a significant difference in price. Overall you can't go wrong here if you choose to stay.

Awsome location right on the beach. Spectacular view of the ocean and setting sun! The covered pool and spa area were a nice touch. Free towels from the office helped out. The rooms were big and well maintained. The hotel is going through major renovations at this time but it was not an incovenience at all. The changes look to be of the upscale variety. The only nock on the whole stay was that the room keeping was very bad. We left for the day only to return to a room that was vacuumed and thats about it. The cleaners did put out a couple new towels and some new shampoo but put them down on an ucleaned counter and tub!! The beds were made by just flinging the blankets over the bed and throwing the pillows hap hazzardly on the bed. Over all we had a great stay at a great location. I know ther hotel is under new management but his service with the cleaning should improve.

This was our first visit to the Oregon Coast. We picked Lincoln City and were not disappointed. Surftides is a wonderful hotel. The man registering us at our arrival was very courteous and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The fireplace was a special treat as the coast was very cool when we were there.

The hotel has easy access to the beach down a ramp. We did have to use flights of stairs to get to our room as it was on the first floor.

The hotel is away from the more active area of Lincoln City, but we enjoyed the quiet beach with less people. A group of kids built a beach fire which was a treat to see. The annual kite festival was held this weekend and we got to see giant octupus kites flying in the air!

I would recommend this hotel for a quiet peaceful vacation.
