I do take exception with the word "Resort" being in the title of this motel. Yes, a mom and pop type motel circa maybe early 60's. The motel room was exceptionally clean which is the most important thing to me. This was a typical smaller motel room equipped with a microwave, a small refrigerator and a few bowls, small plates...

This hotel is in a great location, just cross the road and you are at the beach. There are cots and umbrellas provided. The rooms are a little older than the other hotel we stayed in next door, but the service was good. The kitchenette area was small, there was a little fridge. There was also a pull out bed... More

I was not impressed with the hotel, the room or the beach - don't mean that in a totally negative way. We were in the area for a wedding. We arrived early to spend some time at the beach, the staff was extremely friendly and worked it out so that we could check in early. The beach had quite a... More

Other people have summed it up pretty well: although it's a glorified motel, it delivers a lot of value. In addition to the relatively good prices, it's right across from a private beach with chairs and towels at no extra cost. You do, however, have to cross a somewhat busy street. It's quite clean, and the tile floors are a... More

We were not impressed with the service. For the price for the room it was short in the satisfying department. Very strict rules regarding having non registered guests prevented us from having friends come visit. Also it was apparent that the shower stall was new however the floor beneathe creeked so much it sounded and felt as the floor beneath... More

Try to stay at Silver Surf once a year to relax and enjoy the beach. The private beach is awsome and rentals right on beach make Silver Surf a well rounded vacation location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Love this place:)

It's been years since I've stayed in a motel (exterior doors) so I was a little hesitant, but I couldn't have been happier! The staff is so friendly, housekeeping was awesome, and the rooms were very cute. Even my picky teens loved the place :) the beach is across the street and in the morning, there are plenty of beach... More

Silver Surf is definately not a hotel, but a nice motel. The rooms are all tiled and clean. We had a small microwave and toaster and other kitchen utensils to use. Great location and private beach with chairs and umbrellas at no extra cost. Staff were very welcoming and made sure we liked our room by calling the room abt... More

Sits just across the road from the beach. Pleasant staff (no overnight desk service). The rooms are not large but adequate. A nice pool. They provide beach towels. Chairs are available on the beach for no charge. A beautiful place to watch the sunset. About a mile from Bridge Street with its shops and restaurants and the free trolley (which... More

Our room was very nice. It had all kitchen amenities except a stove. The floors were tiled and made the room feel cooler. It was a very clean room too. We were very pleased. My only complaint is that they advertised that they provide beach chairs. When we went down to the beach they were all out of chairs. We... More
