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

My husband and I stayed at the Surfside for 2 nights the 3rd week of Sept. Although the weather was the PITS, the view from our oceanfront room was FABULOUS!! We only booked one night at first and had to move to a different floor for a second night. The rooms were a bit different although both were listed as... More

Surfside was ranked #1 on Trip Advisor and now we know why. The hotel was clean, centrally located and had a very friendly staff. An indoor and outdoor pool with a hot tub were a great change from the beach when it started raining. Oh, did I say beach...right outside our door! Free continental breakfasts were an added bonus. There... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Surfside in Aug. 2009. We had a great time! The maid service was very good. The room was a little dated but nothing to complain about. One thing we wished the wireless internet worked in our room. We stayed in the second building and the internet was nonexistent. The location is awesome literally... More

From making the reservation to check-out, the staff at the Surfside Hotel were absolutely wonderful! The room was very clean, had a nice balcony over-looking the beach, and excellent air conditioning. The bathroom was a little worn but very clean. Even the shampoo, lotion and soap were amazing! I was under the impression that there was wi-fi in the rooms... More

We had a wonderful few days at Surfside and Nags Head. Check-in was very efficient. The gentlemen behind the desk was friendly and helpful. He gave a quick overview of the hotel (breakfast, pool times, etc). We got a parking pass for the car and grabbed a trolley for our luggage. Our room was in the main building (there are... More

My family spent 3 nights at the Surf Side. We had a south-facing “ocean view” room on the third floor. The views of the beach and ocean from our balcony were excellent. The room itself was spacious and very clean. The hotel is conveniently located on the oceanfront and only a short distance from the bridge to Manteo. Breakfast options... More

I had stayed at the Surfside a number of times many years ago. This year I had the pleasure of staying once again (July). It is one of the better hotels in this area and the location is great. The staff is friendly and ready to assist. They offer a wine in the lobby in the afternoon. I thought that... More
