We stayed here out of season close to Christmas so the place was really quiet. We booked a room with a hot tub and beachfront view and were not disappointed. The place was really clean, the decor was tasteful and the hot tub was huge and situated right near the balcony doors so we could sit in it and see... More

The staff was great - everyone. They all had smiles and greetings for us in the hallway. The room was spacious and clean and the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves was worth every penny. We highly recommend the Surf Side Hotel.

Surf Side has such a great staff and they do SO much for their customers. They have an awesome wine social in the evening and the best location in the beach! We have stayed here many years and they continue to make the best improvements each & every time! The free breakfast is so yummy with a lot of choices.

We just left Surf Side and had an amazing time! We arrived on a Saturday and stayed through Tuesday. The room was extremely clean and was kept that way every time they cleaned. We had a beach side room on the top floor and the view was breathtaking!! The staff was always friendly, the breakfast was just enough (waffles, biscuits... More

Stayed for a destination wedding being held in the area. Not a luxury hotel, but nice rooms in a convenient location. Front desk friendly, but needs to learn to be a little more professional and accommodating.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Surf Side Hotel over the weekend. The Desk clerk was very accommodating and friendly and with short notice put us in a upper room with an Ocean front balcony. I am quite pleased with the hotel and plan on returning.

We decided to go to The Outer Banks for our anniversary, and choose this place due it's stellar reviews. We absolutely love it! It has all the modern luxuries, it is on the ocean, and is affordable, what more can you ask for? There is an indoor and outdoor pool, free breakfast, and also close to everything. If you choose...

I had read some if the Tripadvisor reviews before booking, and found all the good things to be true. The property is older, but well maintained and appropriately updated. My room was clean and large, and the breakfast was phenomenal! I will definitely be back!

We stayed for a short getaway. The room is spacious and our view overlooked the pool and a great view of Janette's Pier. There is an elevator in the main building we stayed in. The heated pool and hot tub were located in the annex in the next building, very easy to access and wonderful to relax in after a... More
