NoticeEach inspection report is a “snapshot” of conditions present at the time of the inspection. On any given day Surfcaster Motel in Melbourne Beach Florida may have fewer or more violations than noted in their most recent inspection. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions at Melbourne Beach's Surfcaster Motel.

A summary of violations found during inspections are listed in the Lodging Establishment Inspection boxes above. Cited are violations of Florida's sanitation and safety laws.

Effective January 1, 2013, the Florida Division of Hotels and Restaurants adopted a new three-tiered violation classification system that replaces the "critical" or "non-critical" classification in use up until then. The new system uses the terms "High Priority," "Intermediate" and "Basic" which better define violation information for consumers, making it easier to understand.

In general, High Priority violations are those which could pose a direct or significant threat to the public health, safety, or welfare. Although the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) uses the term "High Priority", varying degrees of severity and potential risk to the public require inspectors to assess each situation in determining the appropriate action. In addition, while Surfcaster Motel may have multiple violations, the inspectors' training and judgment formulate the overall result of the inspection to ensure public health and safety.

Intermediate violations are those which relate to specific actions, equipment or procedures that contribute to the occurrence of a high priority violation if left unaddressed. Basic violations are those which are considered best practices to implement.

Formally, Critical violations were those that involve life safety, sanitation and business practices. Noncritical violations included building disrepair, housekeeping problems or improper processing of room rate notices.

While most establishments correct all violations in a timely manner (often during the inspection), the division's procedures are designed to compel compliance with all violations through follow-up visits, administration action or closure when necessary.

Violations listed refer to the revelant section of Florida regulation that has been observed to be deficient during the inspection. Each establishment must comply with the language of the inspection statement. For purposes of enforcement and compliance, the DBPR recognizes the status as printed on the inspection form, although the severity of the violation observed may warrant additional action regardless of its "High Priority/Intermediate/Basic" or "critical/noncritical" designation.
