My wife and I stayed here recently for 4 nights. Everything was great including the breakfast they serve each day. This is the second time we've stayed here and I'm sure it won't be the last. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Surf Side Hotel to any of our friends.

Just finished our 3rd time to Surfside this summer. As always the property is contantly being well maintained and the staff was very accomodating. Surf Side is a great way to navigate the uncertainty of staying in Nags Head. Great for the kids with the pool that can see both ocean and sound to the beautiful beach within walking distance...

First off I was expecting the typical... yes typical, nasty, run down, things half working, kinda smelly hotel room that you get in touristy areas like this.. Even the major hotel chains are beat up, run down and have an odor as well as stains everywhere... WELL, was I surprised when I drove up to this place... Cheaper than most... More

Just returned from our trip with our granddaughter before school starts. The hotel couldn't have been lovelier. The staff was wonderful, the room clean - hard to do with so much sand nearby - and the pool was perfect. A wonderful, but too short, vacation!

Just returned from a few days here..liked everything about this hotel..rooms are clean with nice views..we had a side oceanview room with a private balcony. I think the oceanview rooms are just as good as oceanfront because you can see the ocean and the sound sunsets as well..there is plenty of parking and the included breakfast is quite good. Staff...

The moment we stepped in the lobby, the staff felt like family! All were friendly and accommodating the entire week! The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. A balcony with white rockers overlooking the ocean was a delight! The breakfast was delicious and suited everyone's palate. The happy hour in the afternoon was a refreshing time! Corn... More

This place was the bomb! Everything about it is excellent..the rooms..the staff...the front desk workers..the maids..the maintenance workers. The breakfast was great. Showers are great. If I go back I will always stay here. They treat you like family!

We spent a few nights at the Surf Side Hotel in Nags Head and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a very nice location as it is right on the beach. We stayed in the second building and our room on the second floor had a small balcony from where we had a view of the Atlantic. The staff... More

After many unpleasant hotel visits I was relieved finding this hotel.the rooms were clean, right on the beach.hotel staff went out of their way to make the stay a great one. The only two things I could say that weren't great was the breakfast choices, and if your a smoker having to smoke only in designated areas. Nice, clean, awesome... More

We had never been on a beach vacation as a family before (in fact my 3 boys (11, 9, 9) and I had never been on a beach vacation before). As a family of 5 it is difficult to find a hotel let alone one in OBX on short notice. Well, I am so glad we were able to get... More
