I wish I had found this hotel sooner. What a nice gem to find in the crystal coast! We had an oceanview room, which is not ocean front; however, you do have an ocean view more like a side view with a balcony. We stayed on the 3rd floor so you definitely look out over the ocean. Access to the... More

Very nice people, very clean, complimentary wine hours every day, breakfast included every morning. We had a party of 21 and everyone in our party had a very nice experience. We would definitely choose this hotel again if we return to the Outer Banks. Great job to all the staff!!!!

The hotel itself was very clean, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the staff very friendly and thoughtful. There was a direct path... More

We stayed at surf side last week. 1st, the good: customer service was excellent, the rooms were immaculate, the beach was super close, pools great and safe. The bad: nothing was bad. I can't think of a bad thing to say. The mediocre: the breakfast was so/so. You can make your own bagels, get cereal, toast, bagel, juice or fruit.... More

Hotel was very clean, beds were comfortable, and the staff was the friendliest! Will definitely stay here again. Loved the outdoor pool area. Could play in the pool and see the Sound and feel the ocean breeze.

Best hotel my family and i have ever stayed at. Amazingly clean. The staff was phenomenal! Cannot wait to go back! Beautiful place. Staying here really made our vacation. Literally right on the beach. Indoor and outdoor pool, both extremely well kept.

Our great experience started with the check in. My wife and I were delighted with the friendliness of the staff and were pleasantly surprised that the hotel has a happy hour which included two types of wine and three types of snacks. After a long day on the road, it hit the spot. The room was well sized and clean.... More

This hotel is immaculate! The staff goes out of their way to make your stay special. We had 4 women and one of them was turning 50. Staff left a bottle of champagne and 4 glasses for us. They provided more seating for our balcony. The breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of food.
