The staff from top to bottom made our visit special. From the front desk, to maintenance, all were very friendly. We were there for my daughter's wedding. We borrowed hammers to pound tent canopies into the sand, bottle openers, scotch tape, you name it. It was a beach wedding and they roped off a sand area early in the morning... More

Location was great and room had all the necessities. A/C kept going on and off, but I think it is because it was really hot outside. Bed was comfortable and staff was helpful. Had a fridge in the room, but temperature was set too high so my drink slightly froze. Beach access was easy and nice. Had a pool, but... More

We stayed in a corner room...had an AWESOME breeze everyday right off the ocean. We stayed in a suite which was nice, a little more room for four of us....kids had their own room. Loved the deck overlooking the ocean.

We were in Manteo for a sailing regatta with a team of teenagers. We decided to stay on the beach in Nags Head so the kids could unwind and enjoy the ocean each evening. Surf Side did not disappoint . . . . the staff could not have been more accommodating, polite and gracious . . . . the rooms... More

The two best things about this hotel was that it was very clean, and all the people that worked there were outstanding - friendly and helpful. I was traveling with my husband and 18 year old daughter. We had a room with a king bed and a loft with a queen; it had a side ocean view. I really have... More

The staff was super friendly and allowed us to use the pool while our room was being cleaned before check-in.The location of this hotel is amazing! I had a room with a view of the ocean and pool. The pool was used everyday in conjunction with breaks from the ocean. The rooms were spotless, however the bed was a bit... More

Wonderful hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great beach and beatituful view. Nice rooms, clean & plenty of outlets. Free WiFi. One street off of the main drag, but closer to the beach. Kid friendly. My 2 yr old grandson loved the beach and the waves.

My husband and I stayed here for three days in August. There are not a lot of hotels on the beach and this one is in a great location. It is within walking distance to the pier and close to many restaurants. The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful and the pool lounges plentiful and comfortable. There are even... More

Great views. Kind and helpful employees. Breakfast excellent. Coffee, tea lemonade available all day. Great location. We will be back!! Spur of the moment vacation turned into 3 day stay. Views from balcony not to be missed, even in 'off season'. Evening wine and snacks, what's not to like?
