    SLUM LORDS!!!

    As soon as we walked in could see stains on both beds. The carpet was black from Filth. Could not let the baby on the floor at all. No phone in room at all. There is a TV and it turned on, but didn't work. There was wifi but the middle of the second night it didn't work. Kept saying the motels bill was past due. First night strangers baning on door. Rest of stay, homeless and druggies on and around property. We were so scared, that when Door dash brought our order, we didn't want to unlock the door and grab our stuff. The only reason we picked this location was because the advertisement said it was close to. UCSF were we had to take baby. Which it is not by the way. So you can add faults advertisement to the list. The other reason was price. The staff $150.00 for 2 nights. Nothing good to say about the SURF MOTEL. The staff in lobby seem only concerned with if you have funds to pay and nothing else. If we would have had some were else to go. Would have done it in a heartbeat!! Steer clear from this place for your health and safety. The only thing that rang true was the price!

    Very good location to sites and Reasonably Priced.

    Pleased having a large frig, microwave being in a relatively quiet place. Within walking distance to bus lines and 5miles to local landmarks. I would have liked a coffee maker in the room supplied. No phone in room either. For the room 7 days under $400 comfortable stay and comfy mattress.
