My husband and I enjoyed a lovely weekend at Surfside Inn, celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly, helpful and hospitable. The food was delicious. We ordered the Seafood Linguine and the Salmon meal and both were very fresh and delicious. We shared a salad for an appetizer and it was a very generous portion and very... More

Our GPS got us a bit turned around as we neared our destination at the Surfside Inn. It had been a long trip, and we were tired and hungry when we finally pulled in. Natalie, the proprietor, was so gracious and welcoming to us. She reopened the kitchen to serve us a lovely light dinner, so that we wouldn't need... More

My husband and I stayed here for a short weekend getaway and loved it. It's right on the ocean for a beautiful day on the beach. The rooms are lovely, and full of charm, like the house, but the bathrooms have been updated and are very modern. No cable, but there's netflix! Staff was very kind and the food was... More

Dear Laura, We were happy to see you back for your 2d year wedding anniversary! The Victorian room is a good choice for a romantic stay, as it features a gorgeous antique double bed-frame and offers a nice view of Queensland beach. However this room is designed for couples and the bedframe is not suitable to accomodate a child. Having... More

No we did not expect power at this Inn, what we did expect though was maybe a bottle of water to brush our teeth, maybe a flashlight in our room instead of total darkness in a strange environment. We were not asked once after it got dark if there was anything we needed! We were also expected to pay the... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary on a very quiet Wednesday night. I think we were the only guests. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to their best suite, which was a lovely, large room. We chose the romance package and received chilled sparking wine, chocolates and a lovely note wishing us a happy anniversary. There was a... More
