We stayed at the Surfside Motor Inn for labour day weekend. The location is fantastic close to the beach and a short walk to Main Street. Our rooms was tatty, unloved and needed some maintenance working doing to it. The price seemed a little steep to me, you are basically paying for the location and nothing else.

For business, I had to shoot a Cape Cod Baseball League game at Chatham on a Thursday night. I also had a wedding on a Saturday. Being from Chatham, since moved, I've always seen this beautiful Inn, but never stayed..until now. Top floor room. Could look out and see the fishing boats coming and going. Very comfortable bed.

What an amazing, quick getaway with my friend Justine. Booked it last minute without thinking anything would be available. Being from the north shore and a complete SNOB of beaches I couldn't believe the beach was within steps of the surfside! It was filled with seals, sandbars and views for days! The inn couldn't be in a better location! Clean,... More

I recently returned from a week long trip at the Surfside Motor Inn and it was delightful! The new owner, Mark Hagopian, has done an excellent job renovating the Inn with freshly painted rooms, new comfortable beds. The Inn is historic and quaint. The location is prime, across the street from the beach and a short walk into town. The... More

Very friendly staff and guests, the front porch is very inviting and a great place to read or chat. Walking distance to kid friendly beach, shops and restaurants. Clean rooms with flat screen TVs and continental breakfast included. This Inn will be a new must for our family vacations.

Just returned from a great stay at the inn! Stayed here on a Monday and we were pleasantly surprised at the location and the unbeatable price! The inn is located a short walk to downtown, less than five minutes to Main Street or the lighthouse. We checked in a little late and the staff were accommodating and really friendly. Our... More

This inn is convenient to downtown Chatham by car, where there are shops and restaurants. They offer free parking, refrigerators in the rooms, and continental breakfast, which we enjoyed on the porch. We could see the ocean from our room and walk there in minutes.

Friendly staff, plus opportunity to meet interesting fellow guests on relaxed front porch, with folks from U.S., Europe and Middle East. Walk to wonderful beach with lots of boat traffic zooming along. Walk to unique village shops, art galleries and all sorts of restaurants. Walk to lighthouse with panoramic views of ocean. Overall relaxed atmosphere. Slept like a log. Plan... More

While the location is great this inn is lacking in all other areas. The room was out of date due to dark wood paneling, musty and rusted in spots old carpeting, no AC! Nothing painted, no curtains, an old shade on the window, etc.overall this was a very unpleasant experience and would never consider coming again.
