We enjoyed our stay at Silver Surf. Rooms were comfortable and appointed with everything we needed. The beach was wonderful. The sunsets were magnificent. The chairs, umbrellas and towels were provided at no cost.

Great stay! We had a great time, the location is great for the beach, nice to give beach towels and have lounge chairs available to use. The pool was very clean and warm, grounds are very well kept and clean as are the rooms which are also very big and have efficiencies.

The staff is pleasant and very helpful. Local restaurants and shopping are great ! This is one of few places where you can get a room for only 1 or 2 nights for a week -end getaway (most require a week long stay)

Great location, trolley stop out front, restaurants all near by. Staff was friendly and always helpful. Smaller studio room but clean and quiet. Everything you need except luggage racks. Beds good, plenty of towels. Beach across the street, WONDERFUL!!! Plenty of chairs and very clean beach area.

My second trip to the Silver Surf and I have nothing but good things to say. This time I had one of the larger rooms with a full kitchen. Since I love to get local seafood in Cortez this worked out perfect for me. Great walks on the lovely beach and every one was very professional. I feel right at... More

We love here. We have been coming here for over 20 years. Its close to everything but still peaceful. The rooms are always clean and the staff is friendly. The lady that took care of our room was excellent. She kept it clean and well stocked. As soon as we leave we are planning when we can go back.

Had a wonderful time at the Silver Surf. The weather was lousy, but the room was pleasant and it was well located. I would recommend this location to family and friends and anyone that was looking on Anna Maria.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location could not have been better, with the beach and free trolley stop right across the street! We loved having both a microwave and a refrigerator in the room. I would stay here again!
