stayed for a long weekend. Nice location, across the street from beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach for guests to use.. a VERY nice service! Beach towels were also provided. Room was clean, air conditioning worked well. Grab and go breakfast was nice touch (limited variety.. frozen pastries, bread or bagels for toasting, fruit, juice, coffee) but definitely... More

I stumbled across the Silver Surf via Groupon. We stayed 4 nights, and I could not have been happier with the accommodations, especially for the price! Keep in mind, there are no high-rise, chain hotels on Anna Maria Island. It is a very quaint, mostly residential island. Silver Surf is an old-school motel with 100% modern day updates and renovations.... More

We stayed here for 3 days. It was a perfect location with a private beach across the narrow island street . We had free use of umbrellas and chairs. It was great not toting our own along or paying to rent them. We thought it was going to be noisy here. There we children running around everywhere. Once we went... More

I'll throw out the pros and cons in an easy list for you to follow and decide for yourself. -excellent beach. Despite the rooms not being oceanfront, once you walk yourself across the street, the beach here is excellent.... More

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

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!
