Hotel was very clean and quiet. My husband and I needed some down time and this was an excellent location to do that. Direct access to beach and it was not crowded. Staff was friendly, courteous and always helpful. This was my second stay here and I would definitely come again.

We would definitely stay here again! Surf Side is right on the ocean and close to grocery stores, restaurants, Urgent Care and stores. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast that is included has make your own waffles, several kinds of fresh fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, juice, breads and bagels.... More

We booked this hotel when we waited too long to rent a house. We wanted easy access to the oceanfront which it had. Rooms and bathrooms are 3 star quality but its clean and there is a nice continental breakfast included in the price of your stay (waffles, bagels, pastries, cereal, fruit). There are indoor and outdoor pool options which... More

This is the first time we actually decided to stay in a hotel instead of a house or condo. In my opinion, much more convenient and stress-free. The hotel was a bit older looking than I expected, as was our room. Overall, it was clean and is in a great location. The cost was a bit high for the age... More

Nothing is cheap in the summer on the OBX. We rented one of their corner suites for 5 days and it was pricey, but having the doors open at nite for the ocean sounds, and the constant breezes made up for it. It was a vacation. Breakfast was an nicely upgraded continental breakfast and a great gal who kept the... More

Shop around before booking here. We could have had a rental house for the price. Nice staff. Pool towels have to be returned to the front desk after using them and it was uncomfortable when customers were inside the office. Other than that it was okay.

Chose this hotel entirely off of TripAdvisor recommendations...and they didn't fail me! We'd never been to the area. Surf Side is in a GREAT location. Nags Head is more relaxed and less commercialized than the other towns. The hotel is great. We had the room with the loft, which was perfect for the two teenage girls to use for a... More

This is an extremely clean and friendly hotel with a great location on the beach. The little "extras" like the 4 pm daily snacks, the infused ice cold lemon water, and the abundant fresh fruit at breakfast were awesome. Our room was spacious (enough for 2 teens and 2 adults) and even though we faced the parking lot side of... More

Really enjoyed Surf Side Hotel. Met up with another family and had a great experience. My friend and her family selected the hotel. I was leary since I had not seen the hotel. However, the reservations I had about staying there left before I saw the hotel because of the customer service I received on the phone on the way... More

The pros:The view from our ocean front room was very good. The rooms were nice with good roominess(also see cons). The noise level was very low, what I mean by this is the room walls seemed to be thicker than some of the newer big name chains, allowing less noise to be heard in your room.Beach access was great and...
