The Surfrider provides a great experience. They have thought of all the things that would make a great vacation. Food is great, staff are super helpful and there are many things available to participate in activities in the area. As advertised, the property is on the highway meaning it is noisy and the rooms are small, but they are appointe so well and the other amenities offered, plus proximity to the beach, more than makes up for it.

Surfrider is a bespoke and modern hotel with an idyllic SoCal/surf vibe, and a relaxing atmosphere. It’s right off the PCH (opposite ocean side) with views of the pier and a popular surfing location. Highlights: Private guest only restaurant on the roof top with incredible views – dined here twice for breakfast, and both meals were delicious. Menu items are thoughtful and Californian cuisine inspired. Loved their banana bread and chorizo burrito. Highly recommend trying at least once if you visit. Design – side view room was beautiful with an ocean/ranch style aesthetic. Lots of natural wood, and neutral color tones, with soft lighting to add to the calming atmosphere. Noteworthy amenities include waterfall shower and bath products by AMASS. Super comfortable bed. Tips for improvement: Details – special touches are always appreciated, and a couple were missed. Our room included a welcome note, but it wasn’t addressed to us (it was addressed to another party). The Netflix remote battery was not working and had to be replaced.

The rooms were basic but very nice. Staff were very friendly. The food at their roof top cafe was so delicious! Location was very convenient to shopping and restaurants. We would love to stay again!

Loved our stay at this boutique hotel and will definitely be coming back. The staff was amazing and the cool vintage surf vibe was really relaxing- also got in a few good turns at the local surf spots!

We spent three nights at The Surfrider and loved our experience. We travel a lot and we can't come up with another property that had a more thorough daily cleaning or a more friendly staff. This property is immaculate and its location is perfect for walking to The Malibu Pier (and Malibu Farm and Cafe), the beach across the street, the Adamson House and even the Malibu Mart/Lumber Yard (or you can drive of course). The food served up on the roof top is excellent (as is the tea and everything else we ordered). We can't wait to return. Also, there is parking available on site for $20 a day.
