I called to stay Saturday to Saturday & I paid for one night to hold our dates. Friday comes around & while I am enjoying some pool time with my 2 year old, house keeping has a GUEST come get me from the pool & says weren’t u supposed to check out? I said no my stay is til tomorrow & she said okay. So I go back into the pool & she calls me out again & says ma’am you were supposed to check out today. I said well l was under the impression I was staying until tomorrow I can’t leave my husband is deep sea fishing, he has our car, where am I to put all my things? she goes down to the office I call down there because I’m totally confused, she thinks I hang up & I can hear them saying she can’t wait out here with all her stuff and a child, she better get walking. So I hang up & call back & she tells me the assistant manager is coming up to talk to me. I said to him can’t I just pay for another night? he says no we’re booked......Now why would I do this purposely? & my have my husband go fishing & not check out?? He says to me I don’t know what to tell you, I can give you an hour to get all your things out. I HAD MY TWO YEAR OLD WITH ME. where was I putting my things??? On my magic carpet & fly the hell out of there???? After I PACK EVERYTHING by myself (we had a ton of things we were staying for a week) I pack everything..the lady comes up & says I got you another room but your on the 3rd floor & have to move all your things. So THANKFULLY the young staff men carried all my things up 3 flights of stairs. They were so nice!!!! So by this time my WHOLE “last day” was shot. Couldn’t enjoy myself... I paid to spend the night, sleep & leave at 11 AM $277 which was a JOKE after they ruined my whole trip & had me & MY BABY sitting outside packing up a weeks worth of items & souvenirs all by MYSELF. Also, with all that money you charge for a hotel with the worst Managers maybe you can buy some decent BEDS the worst sleep I have ever had & the worst mattresses I have ever slept on. Needless to say I HIGHLY DONT recommend this hotel or the kokomo!!!!!

I'll preface this review by saying I'd consider myself a bit too bougie for a hotel like this so my opinion is a little skewed. I usually arrive early at hotels but Surf Inn has a very strict 3 PM check-in time which I find extremely inconvenient if you’re only staying for a short period of time. If I’m going to spend less than 24 hours in a room than I should not be paying for a 24 hour stay. Likewise, due to understaffing there were many angry guests because their rooms wouldn’t be ready until 4 PM. I’d be concerned that rooms aren’t being cleaned thoroughly if you’re rushing to complete the job. Parking is a headache and very tight. There’s only one parking spot per room so if you plan on bringing multiple cars...don’t. You run the risk of ruining your vacation and getting your car towed by parking in an unauthorized spot. NOW to the room. Again wasn’t expecting much here and I also didn’t get much so expectation met I guess? You have a nice sized kitchenette with a stove. The decor is an eye sore and desperately needs an upgrade. With such high prices during the summer season I’m not sure where that money goes? Because the bathroom floor, the carpet and the comforters have a tragic 90s colorful pattern to them it’s hard to make out any stains. The sheets appeared clean. The mattresses are cheap and springy. You will hear everything so hope that your neighbors are considerate and quiet. The lighting is awful. You get what you pay for and this hotel delivers on that. *Which is why this is a three star review instead of two.

Best vacation yet!! Staff was very friendly and helpful The room was clean and beautiful. Checking in and out was easy and quick. The amenities were more than we needed or used. But it was nice to know they were all available if needed. I would recommend this hotel for your next vacation or business trip as it has all you’ll need to relax have fun or get the job done while enjoying your stay. Very pleased CH

While I was at the beach I received a voicemail from a very nasty lady at 11:30 AM telling me I vomited outside my door and I need to come clean it. Because I knew that it wasn’t me or my guest, I called back to try to resolve the fact that they were going to leave it there for me to clean. I told the front desk “lady” Joanne that I need them to look at the cameras so they can see it wasn’t me or my guest. She continued to accuse me and then hang up on me. When I called back using *67 because they refused to answer my calls, I was told that the issue was “resolved” and to have a nice day and was hung up on again. So this time I called while recording and asked if they looked at cameras and if I can know who DID throw up on my door. Joanne responded, “your guest”. At this point I decided to drive back to the hotel to try to find out if I’m being held responsible for this. When I showed up at 4:30, the vomit was still NEAR my doorstep, closer to the door next to us. I realized that they weren’t going to clean it and lied about it being “resolved”. Because I found this utterly disgusting and vile (also this is during corona virus pandemic), I chose to call the Ocean City Police to make a report about the REFUSAL to clean the vomit. After the officer talked to Joanne, we were told we must pack our belongings right now and get out or we will be arrested. We were told that we will receive no refund and not get our security deposit back. This was when I tried to speak to the fat 4 foot “male” manager that was hiding behind the cops, and CALMLY ask what his name is so I can dispute with my bank for my $300 dollars, ($150 for room & $150 security deposit). The fat male manager then proceeded to charge at me, coming 1 inch away from my face, pointing his finger in my face, screaming to the point his face was red, that I need to “Get the f**** out of here and f****** leave”. While he did look very funny, it is not funny a middle aged man screaming in the face of a 22 year old female who didn’t do anything wrong. So to sum up this experience, a stranger vomited near my doorstep and the hotel left it there for over 4 hours for me and my boyfriend to clean. Then when we called authorities about the health code violation and harassment, they kicked us out with no refund. ******Attached in the photos are time stamps to compare when the vomit was still there versus the time they left a voicemail for us to clean it.******* I truly hope people read this review and the other appalling reviews and decide that they don’t want to give business to pigs who don’t clean anything and treat customers like ATM’s !!!!!! Ask yourself how you would feel if a stranger vomited outside your door and the hotel left it ALL day to be cleaned by YOU, and then kicked you out with no refund or remorse*****

Response from Maggie Coutu, Guest Services / Front Office at Surf Inn Suites
Responded 30 Aug 2020
Good Afternoon, Hello Ms. Rosa. My name is Maggie and I believe that we spoke on the phone yesterday. In regards to the review you left our hotel, several of your neighboring guests made complaints about the bodily fluids that were found outside of your room and had seen one of your guests do it. After receiving these complaints, we reviewed our security cameras and had reason to believe that your unit was responsible. After leaving the voicemail, we sent a housekeeper to take care of the matter, but the housekeeper did not clean it up. Once we realized that the fluids had not been cleaned, we immediately took care of the matter while you were still present. I do apologize for the miscommunication on our part. The police arrived, per your request, and found your behavior threatening and disruptive. The police asked you to leave, due to the disturbance complaints given by our other guests. I have spoken to you, as well as your mother, in regards to refunding your security deposit. We would be happy to refund your deposit but were unable to because we did not have the correct card on file, which I explained to you over the phone. We offered to change the card on file, but you refused to give us the correct card number. I understand your dissatisfaction with the matter so, if you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call at 410-524-7100. Thank you for your time and have a great day! Maggie C.
