I had trouble finding much info online or here on TA regarding the Efficiency rooms at Surf Side, but I booked one anyway and took my chances. It was really nice. Room 531. There was a full kitchen with stove/range, refrigerator and pots/pans, glasses, dishes, cutlery, dishcloths, dish soap, you name it. It was very clean, and looked recently re-modeled... More

My husband and I travel to Nags Head twice a year to see our kids. This is a nice, clean and comfortable hotel right on the beach. Very nice views from our 2 queen bed ocean view room which also overlooked the pool. Normally wouldn't pay for ocean view but in off season it's so reasonable why not see that... More

I found Surf Side on the internet and was very pleased that the reviews on Tripadvisor were right on. I was aware of any potential problems and any unexpected pluses. We were very pleased with our oceanfront room and the accessibility to the ocean. Our room was very clean and we enjoyed having a kitchen where we did our own... More

The room is ok. The decor and furnishings are a little dated and there was mold in the shower. I asked for a non smoking room which ended up being surrounded by smoking rooms. I could not use my balcony because the smoke from others poured into the room.

My husband and I and brother in law stayed here for two nights. We had the king loft. It was perfect for us. There was a king size bed and pull out couch and easy chair on the main floor. The loft had a queen size bed. There was also a refrigerator and microwave. It was perfect because we could... More

My friends and I visited Nags Head for another friend's wedding on November 1. We stayed here at her suggestion, and as usual, she was right. Surf Side appears on the outside to be your run-of-the-mill beach hotel, but inside is quite nice and homey. You can hear the beach through your closed windows (it was, however, especially windy and... More

We stayed at the Surf Side Hotel from 10/31-11/2/14 and were delighted with the overall experience and the quant charm of the hotel. The service was excellent and the front office staff was pleasant, helpful and genuinely concerned for their guests well-being during a unexpected storm. The continental breakfast was nice and well stocked for the amount of guests. The... More

My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary and stayed in the Honey Moon Suite at Surf Side. While we never did use the Jacuzzi, we loved the two balconies, the view over the ocean and the entire area. We also looked in some of the other rooms and believe there are numerous outstanding room choices. The buffet breakfasts were... More

Very clean, spacious room, nice breakfast area, and friendly helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay at Surf Side on the oceanfront. Only suggestions: add towel racks and a handle bar in the tub (for safety).
