Whille enroute from South Carolina, used my husband's smart phone to do some reseach for hotels as we did not have a prior reservation in Nags Head. Surfside Hotel rated #1 by customers and we concur. Great value for room and all the amenities. Pretty extensive breakfast selections. Wine served in the lobby for weary and thirsty travels (not at... More

I am happy for you and your niece that the trip turned out so well. I know you could have stood a less windy day on your ferry trip to Ocracoke but your last day couldn't have been much prettier.

We were there for four days over spring break with a 7 and 11 year old. From the moment we checked in we felt right at home. The staff was wonderful. The front desk staff were friendly and welcoming. I think this is a family run place, it certainly felt like it (in a good way!). The cleaning staff was... More

I stayed here last year for 4 days with my wife and 2 year old son, and it was great. We were on the top floor so we had to hit the stairs everytime we went somewhere, but that is about the only complaint (they were very up front about this when we booked, to their credit) Lots of families,...

Stayed at the Surfside hotel over thanksgiving weekend last year. The hotel staff were all helpful and friendly. We stayed in the one bedroom suite. We had an oceanfront suite with a great view. The beach is so close to the hotel which makes for a pleasant night sitting on the balcony. It's an older hotel as are all of... More

My husand and I took a quick getaway to the Outer Banks and found the Surfside winter two day special to be a great value. The staff was very pleasant and the large oceanfront room was freshly painted, clean and well-appointed with a refrigerator, microwave and outside balcony. Our building housed a clean, nice temperature indoor pool and hot tub... More
