Unique 9 room motel on PCH directly across from the beach and around the corner from all the Main St. action. Rooms are basic with surf (or music) decor, comfortable beds & modern bathrooms. There is a mini-fridge but unfortunately no coffee maker nor ice machine. All rooms are on the second floor with parking underneath. There is a nice...

nothing fancy, just the perfect place to power down and bum around huntington. i've stayed here many times, sort of a local secret, not advertised on expedia or travel zoo. great balcony overlooking the ocean, walking distance to everything, the perfect spot. the rooms are very basic, but do have a theme with wall murals that create a simple laid-back...

If you are seeking a beach resort with onsite amenities and food service, keep seeking. If you are looking for a super reasonably priced clean room, comfy bed, with a clean private bath in an excellent location this is your place. There is ample space to unpack and the in-room fridge is terrific for keeping beach bevies chilled. (I will...

The Huntington Surf inn lives up to its name, our room had surf decor, very polite and accommodating staff. Answered all questions we had, got the inside scope on the attractions downtown, some of which as a former local I never knew about. Room was very cozy and the mini fridge was nice to store left overs. Rooms were spacious...

First, the good things: The location right on the PCH is great except the motorcycle traffic at night is really loud, (which is not the fault of the hotel but something to consider,) free parking, convenient smoking area, and a nice walk-in shower. Otherwise, pretty disappointed in this property. Yes, the rooms are each is painted up with a funky...

We checked in and the owner was so nice. Our room was exactly as pictured. The bathroom is very modern. The location was fantastic. We were on a road trip and it was great to walk to the pier, restaurants and shops after driving all day. We had to leave early the next day so did not get to hang...

I was there two days in the off season. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Others at the small hotel were very quiet so noise wasn't a big problem. PC Highway is just outside the door, so you hear cars a lot. Room is a throwback style and not fancy, but I liked it a lot. I...

Small motel with fun rooms. Room was clean and staff was super accommodating. Right on the Pacific Coast Highway and directly across from the beach. Head down the pier for great views. Just a short walk to downtown Huntington Beach. There is a huge and very cool farmers market each Tuesday night!

Great staff and each room individually and uniquely decorated. We have stayed here at least 8 times and loved every visit. Walk to downtown and beach right across the street. Small hotel with only 8 rooms with parking below.

The room was clean, the staff was wonderful. The heater did not work but they brought in a space heater immediately and it was perfect. A wonderful patio on the second floor with a great ocean view. I would definitely stay there again! Thank you Elly H
