Great location. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Kitchenette was perfect size and well appointed for our stay. The area is very busy on the weekend, but come Monday the crowds died down and moving around the island is very easy. I would highly recommend this property.

Reasonable rates, a refreshing pool with restrooms, a private beach with complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas, within walking distance to several restaurants/bars including Wicked Taco, a great mexican place with a beach view.

This is a clean, reasonably priced hotel in a good location. We had a very comfortable king bed. My only criticism is that noise between rooms on the same floor was noticeable, but everyone respected the quiet after 10 pm rule, so it did not interfere with our sleep. The staff was also very understanding about working with us provide... More

This is our fifth time staying at Silver Surf and I think it gets better every year. Clean and conveniently located. The beach and the pool are spectacular. The Grab and Go breakfast is an extra. You don't find much of that in Anna Maria. We love it here! Cant wait to come back!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at your location. We enjoyed everything except the poor quality of the mattresses & the sheets. Supplying beach chairs and towels was extremely appreciated as well as the restrooms at the pool.

I often stay at 4-5 star resorts. This is wonderful economy priced hotel that is very well maintained clean and comfortable. Bradenton Beach is a five star beach across the street. The town is relaxed with a mix of seniors and youth. One can easily walk to a number of restaurants and shops. . The free local trolley runs every... More

Loved the private beach and the amenities included..... Chairs, umbrellas, etc. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the beach..... The motel brought back fond memories of when we were kids and visited Florida. Anna maria has an allure that not many places have.... We're coming back!!

From our room we could see the beach/ocean. The sunsets were beautiful. Was very nice to be able to walk to the private beach and have chairs and umbrellas provided and set up for you when you got there. Was not crowded and was nice to have a an option right on the beach to rent jet skis & sailboats.... More

We headed here for a fiend's wedding. It'd been some time since I stayed in this type of Florida Beach Hotel. Like many of these it is set up to appeal to families - rules about noise, no room service, kitchen type set up. It is a bit expensive there but the room was clean, the staff accommodating and the...
