The staff was fantastic! They were kind and courteous, the room was clean and modern. Location is wonderful. Do try the restaurant, delicious farm to table style food

California Dreaming
The Surfrider is where I wish I could wake up every morning. The views are amazing from the rooms and especially from the rooftop bar and restaurant, which is exclusively for guests. Parking is convenient and the staff makes you feel like part of their family. Everything you need to enjoy the surf and scenery is provided, and it is conveniently located across from the pier and beach, with just a short drive to numerous other beaches. The only improvement I could have used was thicker pillows. We can’t wait to come back

The only thing that makes this stay not perfect is that the hotel is right on the PCH, other than that it is great.

Near-perfect Malibu experience
Probably one of the 2 best places to stay at in Malibu near the pier. Small and luxurious boutique, friendly high-end staff, fantastic rooftop with great views. Rooms are small but cozy, my only issue was the noise of the PCH at night. You can even borrow surfboards.

Best stay yet in Malibu!
It was an amazing and the entire staff was very welcoming. The roof top deck had beautiful views, not to mention the food and drink. I highly recommend the kale salad and ceviche. The room was cozy, clean and the shower was divine!
