Cashiff really helped us out in a difficult situation when we got booked in the wrong city for an event. He was helpful and really came through for us. I would recommend his hotel any day you're going to the Coast. Thank you again!

Response from Glenn D | Reviewed this property |
I have never noticed, i generally stay there when i run up to go Abalone diving, so a fancier place is not really needed. The Surf is clean, not overly stuffy, fits my needs for a hit shower, ckean bed. and a nice rest stop.
