This place is a scam!!! Tried to check in, waited for 45 min while calling the front desk non stop. In the mean time my kid has to pee so bad waiting. Finally found a homeless drunk looking man who first stated he was in the bathroom. When confronted with the cell phone log I had been calling for 45 min he then states he was "helping" someone with there TV and I have only been waiting 10-15 min. During the 45 min time I booked another hotel unsure if we would have a room here. Once the disheveled man appears there was no way in hell I was staying here!!! We tried to show him how long we were staying and we tried to check in without someone there, so we were leaving. The owner then charges me ANYWAY and lies to my CC company when charges were disputed that we never showed up!!! The only reason I can see why people rate this hotel so high, is they only have a stay at a Motel 6 to compare with it. This place is disgusting, run down and dirty.

Dirty room Dirty bathroom Dead cockroaches on the floor No hot water in the morning Maids stole beer out of our refrigerator. The manager Anna called me a liar about the beer and argued with me about what kind of bug was dead on the floor completely missing the point. 3 times I was told I would get a refund and 3 times the manager Anna lied. Why is she in the hospitality industry? I have stayed here for 15 years The new managers don't seem to give a damn!

The Ocean Surf Inn website claims that you wake to the soothing sounds of the Pacific Ocean, but this will only happen if you sleep on the beach - a tempting option. The only sound you can hear inside and outside the rooms is the roar of traffic on the incredibly busy road that runs next to the hotel. The website also claims that construction work would be completed by February 2019 but it's still going on. The only good thing about our room was that it was on the third floor so there was no one stomping around above our heads. We had booked a ocean view room assuming that it would face the ocean, not the road. However, we were given the jacuzzi room at one end of the building. Thus we were afflicted by windows looking out on three roads, the main road as you entered, the side road and then finally a single glazed door on the ocean side opening onto a tiny balcony that unlike the balconies at the rear of the building got absolutely no sun all day and was too noisy to sit on anyway. It's the one on the first photo. When I queried the room allocation I was told that we had a balcony so that's why it was an ocean view room. We needed ear plugs to get any sleep. Provision for drinks in the room was very poor. Just two mugs and the flimsiest of plastic cups, no stirrers and feeble selection of drinks. The microwave turntable didn't turn properly. Breakfast was very poor quality. This was our last stop on a driving holiday so we had other hotels for comparison. We stayed for two nights but our room wasn't serviced. Trying for some positives - the bed itself was comfortable (the pillows weren't) and the people at reception were helpful (room allocation aside). There are some very nice places to eat nearby if you can stand the road noise.

I booked this hotel for one night to take my Grandkids to the Beach. The pictures on their website and various other ones are FALSE ADVERTISING. It's listed in Huntington Beach and is actually in Sunset Beach. For the beach the location is great. As far as the hotel....I was charged and once arrived found out it is totally under construction which was not mentioned.There were also "strange people" just hanging around the underground parking. I couldn't find the hotel or lobby and had to call. I asked Devon, the mngr why would they not list the property as under Construction and why doesn't this facility look like the pictures on the travel websites? Then I said that I wanted to see the rooms before I decided to stay. He took me upstairs, I looked in and it was very dark, the mattresses were sunken in and I didn't proceed to enter and told him we would not be staying. His remark was "that's fine I can rent this room 5x over because the U.S. Surf Open was in Huntington Beach. I said good, because I'm not happy with the False Advertising and I fear the safety of my Grandkids. I also said since you can re-rent it then I would appreciate you refunding my money. Took that up with Booking.com, they sent an email to this hotel and they refuse to refund my money eventhough they re-booked the room. VERY POOR FACILITY. NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURES THEY HAVE POSTED. No Balcony, No Breakfast, Old, and Dirty.

Stayed here one night to have a beach experience, the beach is very close and that is about the best part of staying here. The hotel is currently under renovation, so some doors and carpark entry blockages occur. The hotel is right on the Pacific Highway and the traffic is heavy, we were given a non view room right on the road side and it was noisy for sure. There was nothing great about the room and as the other reviews say, the breakfast is not worth the effort, so we went up the road to the diner which was great. We had a great cheap breakfast there and ate dinner there as well as it was so good. Hotel was not really worth the beach experience. Staff were friendly but just a really noisy room which spoilt it all. If you stay get a room wth a view towards the sea.
