We went to Surf 16 13 years ago and loved it....fast forward to June 2016. We still love it. Finding a pet friendly place can be a challenge but this is one of the best for our needs. The doggie yard is a nice size for your pets to run around and handle their business and bags are provided by...

Welcome back! You would have stayed last before we took over in 2011. Since our take over we have undertaken many new projects to improve the physical building and the business. We continue to work toward more improvements and positive changes.

This was our second year at Surf 16 and it keeps getting better every time we go down. The cleaning staff was right on top of everything we needed. Even the maintenance guy was great. It was very quiet the week we were there, which was the week before labor day. The management has signs posted about quiet time between...

Making customers happy in the way you have described is our goal. We could be the most successful business on the Island if we could make all our customers want to give reviews like this. Thank You.

We planned a last minute vacation and just happened to find this place. Staff was very helpful, they didn't have any rooms available at the hotel that could accommodate us. They informed us that one block closer to the beach they owned condos that would be perfect. We got to use the amenities at the hotel as well. It was...

We stayed here 2 nights. Clean unit and friendly staff. We stayed in an older unit and we were told some were already renovated. Lacking outlets in the bathroom is a problem but they provided a 6 way outlet in the bedroom for our needs.When it is redone I am sure they will add outlets and update the kitchen ....

We needed a room for one night and on a short notice. I called Surf 16 Motel and Rick answered and was very accomodating and we booked a room for the next day, We were pleasantly surprised how clean the room was and the size. It was an efficiency. It is pet friendly also. The location is ideal, two blocks...

The replies by management are correct. Instead of being passive and writing everything in a review, try resolving your concerns with the staff. The air conditioner leaked on my son's smartphone overnight and ruined it. I showed Rick, the owner and manager, photos of why it was leaking in, instead of out. He gave us cash for the cost to...

Thanks Mat Like I try to tell everyone there are solutions to problems when we know about them. I think most people are starting to realize that trip advisor has its limitations. Anyone who has stayed here knows that me or someone from my family is always on premises and we do try our best to make you as comfortable...

I stayed at Surf 16 last week. Sept 2nd to 5th. I must say I really enjoyed myself. Impeccably clean room, fresh linens, and a beautiful pool. The owner Rick was a true gentlemen.

This was our second stay at this motel. We chose it for our first stay three years ago as we brought our dogs with us and it seemed to be the only pet friendly motel in the entire area. The rooms are all original. This means the bathrooms are mostly pink and green. The owner wants his motel to have...

Very nice, clean and friendly. Great area, no need to drive. It's a great place for a vacation with your pets or just with family. Nice and relaxing, the pool area is a nice size area that you have plenty of room for all guests. Will return back this summer.
