"Surfin' on the prairie" Marysville Surf Motel Tip by jayhawk2000

Marysville Surf Motel, Marysville: 35 reviews and 0 photos

I had a friendly welcome and was given a clean, well appointed room with all the essentials: cable TV, coffee, hot shower and a big comfy bed.

The price includes a continental breakfast with your usual coffee, cereals and doughnuts BUT you can also make your own waffles!

Despite the highway location it's plenty quiet (there's not much night traffic in these here parts). This is the official Pony Express highway.

Across the street is a charity shop, perfect for a cheap one-off souvenir. A diner is also within walking distance, otherwise the bright-ish lights of downtown Marysville await.

Unique Qualities: 1) Fresh waffles!

2) They have an exercise room with a treadmill, stationary bike and weights. Further down the hall is a big tub with hot water jets to soothe those muscles after a day in the saddle.

3) It's probably the one 'Surf Inn' which is the furthest you can get from the ocean!
