Employees very friendly & helpful. Accommodations great. Would come again. We have been coming to the Outer Banks over the years. There is something new every time we come. We also enjoy the old standbys. Surf Side helped our stay to be more enjoyable (even on those rainy days). Thank you!:)

After a couple of stays here.. All I can say is fantastic! Very friendly staff, big rooms, clean! And right on the ocean! I've stayed in many hotels along the outer banks over the years.. Surf Side is by far the best!

Just got back from a mid-week off-season stay at the Surf Side Hotel for a first time visit to the Outer Banks. Had a great rate on a corner room, wow. Terrific view of the ocean. Nags Head seemed a good jumping-off point to see the sights, from Wright Bros, Jockey Ridge, all the way south to Cape Hatteras and... More

We opted to stay at Surf Side for a weekend visit and even our young children high-fived me on picking this place! We stayed in a queen oceanfront, and the room was larger than expected. Everything was clean and well-kept and the view was spectacular. I especially loved the rocking chairs on the balcony! The continental breakfast and snacks/wine in... More

Looking for a great place to stay on the Outer Banks?? We have always loved the Surf Side. It has clean, spacious rooms with varying layouts. The staff is also great. Continental breakfast and complimentary wine from 4-6. They have an indoor pool and hot tub which is nice because we like going during off season. Also, if you are... More

We stayed here for 3 nights when we came down in march to fish for the blue fin tuna. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a ocean view loft room on the 4th floor. Room was nice and clean and provided plenty of space for 3 of us. Would return her again.

My husband and I have been coming to Nags Heads twice a year (Spring and Fall) for many years to help out our kids who live nearby. It's always during off season to save money. Our normal place to stay was under renovation & closed during the week we needed so we checked out the Surf Side Hotel on Trip... More

A last minute getaway for our anniversary and we found this jewel. From the making of our reservations, to checking in, to checking out the staff of this hotel was excellent. I happened to mention when making my reservation that it was our anniversary, what a surprise to find a (good) bottle of champagne and glasses with a sweet note... More

We usually stay in a cottage when we go to OBX. This time our schedule would only allow a long weekend trip so I took to trip advisor for a idea of where to stay. That is what led us to picking Surf Side. We are so glad we did. The first two nights we were in a queen supreme... More
