We have stayed at the Silver Surf several times and I can definitely say that this hotel has undergone HUGE improvements with service and the aestetics of the property. Check-in was the best we've experienced thus far! Staff was friendly, welcoming and even let us check-in early (big improvement since our last stay!) We stayed in the room directly next... More

We only stayed for 2 days, but really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Property has new barbecues with a very nice set up. Restaurants in the area are on the expensive side, so the use of the kitchenette was a plus. The cleaning ladies do an excellent job.

Very good... Caution must be taken when crossing the road to get to the beach...nice touch that some tables and chairs set up to eat breakfast overlooking the gulf...my husband had an ear ache and we wanted a qtip or some isopropyl alcohol to dry the water from his ear. We checked with the front desk and nothing of this... More

We stayed here on a monday night and the price was affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful about the island. They have their own private part of the beach which was very nice.forget about the free trolley that goes up and down the island very nice and accessible

Absolutely enjoyed our stay. We prefer quaint places rather than chain hotels. This exceeded our expectation. Really liked that we did not have to lug chairs down to the beach since they were already there.

You had to walk across the street to get to the beach. The hotel did provide beach chairs and umbrellas. Room had leaky ac unit. I had to beg for extra sheets and blankets. Very comfortable bed. Not sure if I'd stay there again...

It's wonderful that you enjoyed our amenities and our beds, but it's a shame to read about the other aspects of your room. I'd like to personally apologize about your A/C unit, as that should never be an issue for any of our guests. We don't typically receive feedback like this, so if you'd like to discuss this more, please... More

Of course I found Silver Surf Gulf Beach Resort by searching on Tripadvisor, and my fellow reviewers did not let me down. First I'll talk about the bad, which wasn't much. Our first room was on the 3rd floor, which in the Florida heat means the AC is working overtime. The front half of the room was nice, but the... More
