This hotel is right on the beach, great views. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. All of the staff from the managers to the housekeeping staff made it a point to ensure that I had an excellent experience. Two pool (indoor and outdoor) and a hot tub. I did notice that there are 2 buildings; if you need an... More

When we arrived at the Surf Side Hotel, we were a bit weary after a 4 hour drive and then sightseeing. Upon check in, there was wine and snacks available. Check-in was pleasant and informative. When we got into our room, I noticed we needed more towels. I went to the counter and the young lady was very helpful and... More

First trip to OBX. I wanted someplace to be on the beach in seconds. Being barely off season most places were still booked up. I found this spot and did some digging. I got a jacuzzi room in the old building on the second floor. (No elevator, but that was clearly stated) The corner room was clean, the kitchen was... More

The hotel is well placed near the beach, and offers big rooms, with bathrooms that are rather small. The bedrooms are reasonably comfortable. However there is no bar or restaurant, and a poor breakfast is served in a most unattractive room. This establishment could do so much better with a decent restaurant and bar, and a more friendly attentive staff.

After driving around South Nags Head, Surfside certainly looks like the best hotel from the outside. I was very impressed with the room and all of the staff at the front desk, the breakfast room, wine bar, life-gaurds (or chair/umbrella-gaurds) and the housekeeping staff. I stayed over Labor Day weekend in the smaller, shorter building (I'd stay there again as... More

Overall we had a good experience at the Surf Side. Beach side room was big, nice and comfortable as advertised. Had 2nd floor beach front room in annex building. Location was very convenient near food options and within driving distance of many other options. Pool was nice and beach was great and for Labor Day weekend not too crowded. Breakfast... More

Nice people, clean rooms. Kind of a "older" feel. But I prefer to think of it as classic instead of dated. Great beds, wonderful housekeeping. And the view could not be beat. The pools were both as expected. The whirlpool could use some updating (painting, repair). But the staff more than made up for any short comings. They went out... More

Had a great experience with this hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and very nice, the breakfast that was included was fabulous, and we could see the ocean from our balcony. When we travel here in the future we will make sure to stay here again.

This is really a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing weekend in Nags Head. The hotel is clean, the rooms are spacious with everything you could want and ours was recently updated so it looked very fresh. They are so gracious and accommodating there, serving a complimentary breakfast which is very well stocked and has something for everyone. Including... More

Staff and hotel are consistently dependable to deliver what is expected - a clean, restful, comfortable hotel where you wake to a sunrise on the beach, dolphins, pelicans, and just the best of what nature can give. We contemplate scheduling our vacation somewhere else, just for a change, and that's a s far as it goes. When our vacation time... More
