A very nice property in...
Liked: The owner/manager was super nice. Gave us great info about the area. Breakfast had yummy scones and biscuits and gravy. Very close to the bluff and Gualala Bluff Trail. Only a few steps from the motel. Dozen or more seals and lots of birds. A very nice walk in the morning. Several nice outdoor seating areas to relax in. Room was comfortable with a kitchen with pots, pans, dishes, etc.
Disliked: Coffee maker in room was broken. Either the walls are a little thin or they were a little loud, but I could hear the guests in the neighboring room talking early in the morning.

Great, wouldn?t mind another stay...
Liked: Didn?t try breakfast but dining area looked welcoming. So glad housekeeping turned on heater since we returned late. Ocean view was great. Didn?t take time to stroll on the beach this time but plan to in future.
Disliked: Difficult to find driveway at night, no clear signs in the dark arriving from the north

Reasonable price. Wouldn?t return.
Liked: The owner was congenial. Located in the center of town and within walking distance of restaurants.
Disliked: Room was TINY! Bed moderately comfortable, if that. Not a single decent chair to sit on in the room. Freezer doesn?t keep ANYTHING frozen!

Liked: The Surf is located on a cliff, overlooking a river and the Pacific ocean, where they meet. STUNNING VIEWS! Absolutely beautiful! Close to everything in town, walking distance to the Surf market and BBQ- yummy!! They have a nice deli and the food was really good. We tried the chicken and apple panini with brie cheese- delicious, and had their BBQ tri-tip sandwiches and half a chicken from the grill. The grandchildren loved the chicken and the tri-tip was tender and juicy. The Surf Inn is in the middle of the small town of Gualala, California. Located right off of amazing Highway 1. It is the perfect spot for day trips to Fort Bragg and Fort Ross. Stunning coastal views and beaches. It has a nice, open fenced area for eating, visiting or just having coffee with friends, overlooking the Pacific ocean. Great place for whale watching as well.
Our room was a queen size, with 2 full beds, 2 chairs and a twin sofa bed. It had a fully furnished kitchenette with seating for four, a small fridge, four burner electric stove, microwave, toaster oven and a Keurig. We couldn't have gotten a better room. We are raising our grandchildren and travel a lot. They are 5 and 7 years old. There was plenty of space for them to sprawl out and color and play, and we could relax and watch television. The TV was a nice size too. We were very pleased.
Disliked: We had a great stay at the Surf Inn, but we stayed while they had a major staff change. It was a little bumpy, but we all managed through it. Breakfast was served a little late for traveling/sightseeing. They started serving at 8:30. When sightseeing, we prefer to get going on the road by 7:30, so we missed out on breakfast 2 out of 3 mornings. However, it was a beautiful, full breakfast, complete with waffles, eggs and sausage, juice, yogurt and muffins. The coffee was also good, and I am a picky black coffee drinker. All that said, the only bad thing was that breakfast was served too late for us.

Disliked: Small outdated rooms, noise from appliances in room and from other rooms made it difficult to get sleep. Checked in by surly sarcastic property manager, who was leaving his job the next day. Shower was difficult to regulate temperatures and had no pressure. Beds have old mattress covers that have been bunched up in the middle making it difficult to have a comfortable night sleep
