The service was great and the room was clean and very comfortable! I stay here whenever I go to the OBX. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is convenient to Hatteras and Roanoke Island.

We stayed there just 2 weeks ago. It was the low season and many restaurants were not open. However the helpful reception staff rang and found a nice restaurant for us. The spacious room we stayed was very nice with a beach view and everything worked.

Now I know how Dorothy felt in the Wizard Of Oz. I was visiting OBX recently and made the mistake of staying elsewhere, planning on being there for the entire week. After only 2 days I missed Surf Side so much I took a chance and walked into the lobby and inquired about availability, without a reservation. It was so... More

We have stayed at the Surf Side hotel many times over the years because of their wonderful staff, clean rooms, great continental breakfast and affordable rates. They have a social hour every afternoon which makes it easy to meet and talk with other guests. I wouldn't plan a trip to the Outer Banks and stay at any other hotel after... More

We booked an Oceanfront Jacuzzi room online for three nights over Thanksgiving. We now wish we could have stayed longer! The room was two flights up with no elevator in the South building so be aware of that. Once we made the climb, though, we found the room well worth it. We were in room 536 and it was very... More

Found this place on the internet and needed some overnight accommodations while attending an event. The building is a little older but we found it very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and we had no problem getting checked in a little early. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the outer banks.

LOVED this place! Clean, adorable, great location, and fantastic staff! We would definitely stay here again! It does not have a restaurant, but there is a breakfast, with a great selection (waffles, cereal, fruit, etc.)

I stayed in September and just got lucky when I picked this hotel. High Points: A variety of room styles, I took a double queen based on its availability and price. Oceanfront and ocean view rooms, I had an ocean view as I didn't want to spend the money on an oceanfront since I was going fishing and sightseeing while... More

I had trouble finding much info online or here on TA regarding the Efficiency rooms at Surf Side, but I booked one anyway and took my chances. It was really nice. Room 531. There was a full kitchen with stove/range, refrigerator and pots/pans, glasses, dishes, cutlery, dishcloths, dish soap, you name it. It was very clean, and looked recently re-modeled... More
