At first glance at checking in, hotel appeared newly renovated, clean, and simple. Upon check-in, we were presented with a long list of rules and procedures that we needed to initial to confirm our understanding. We thought this was odd, as we have travelled and stayed at many hotels and have never experienced quite this lengthy and type of check-in... More

We stayed here and didn't want to leave! We stumbled upon it at the last minute , while looking for something on the beach. This was perfect. It's right across from the beach but you have your own huge private access to the beach right across the street so no one bothers you. I will definetely book here from now... More

Last minute trip and we stumbled upon this gem! Great service, clean and newly updated rooms, great prices, and private beach across the street! Lover it so much that we booked another trip 2 weeks after the first visit! I think that says it all! Oh and once you stay there you get VIP pricing!!! SOLD! :)

My hubby and I decided to visit Anna Maria island on the spur of the moment and didn't make reservations in advance. Called the Chamber on the way and they gave me this location to call. Called and Lucy was covering the front desk. Her customer service won me over and all staff we encountered was great. Room was very... More

We lucked into finding this spot when the place we had reserved turned out not to be what we expected. Clean, quiet, nice pool and lovely beach access, our son lives here so we will definitely be back!

Stayed 2 nights and 3 days with our young children. Perfect beach and great pool. Very clean and free breakfast with stay. Best price we found with last minute booking. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night. Great grills in front of the complex. Beach chairs and umbrellas provided on the beach, which was very convenient.

Just got back from a long weekend birthday getaway at the Silver Surf. After much research, booked the Silver Surf and was not disappointed. We stayed in a King suite on the second floor in the building facing the Gulf. There is no elevator to get to the floor, but it really wasn't an issue. So we had to climb... More

Stayed here for our anniversary. I believe Sherry was the person who checked us in and she told us we had a surprise in our room. The staff had decorated our room with rose petals and romantic tea light candles. Clean rooms with all the amenities and fully equipped kitchen. Continental breakfast provided. Nice pool that has a mechanical lift... More

Sara is Absolutely amazing ! She was very helpful in every aspect . The accommodations was nice ,very clean room ,short walk to the beach and they provide your beach chairs ... Only thing that would have made my stay nicer would have been for the pool to be a little more heated and to have some type of chairs... More

It's a simple but perfect place. Nothing fancy about the accommodations but the kitchen is fully equipped and we were comfortable with 4 people in our room. (Queen bed plus murphy queen bed and 2 'chair' single beds.) They are across the street from their private beach - you get beach towels when you check in and on the beach... More
