Stayed here two nights with my husband...had a room with ocean view and just steps from Stanley Beach...great for swimming, sunbathing, and beach combing. Rooms are small, but comfortable...loved sitting outside in the evening with a glass of wine and the sound of the ocean waves. Rates are very reasonable. Owners are friendly and helpful. The young girl from housekeeping... More

This motel is quite close to the ferry, on the main road -- easy to find, and quiet. I could hear the surf at night, and the beach (great for beach-combing) is just a few metres away from the hotel. It's not super glamourous but comfortable and economical. My room had a fridge, and coffee was available for free in... More

This is a no frills motel but good value for the price. We were told that coffee was available for paying guests. In the morning when we went to get coffee, we got a Styrofoam cup and a teaspoon of instant coffee to take back to our room to make with water we had to heat up in the microwave.... More

Traveling to Grand Manan Island we came upon the Surfside Motel which was quite close to the ferry port. It is a simple but clean motel and very comfortable . The Island is a great spot to go discovering and while there, be sure to take the ferry over to White Head Island, another fun spot to "discover" Returning to... More

We went for three nights. Great location. Beach front property. Restaurant next door. Cottage was well appointed with anything you would need. Fresh coffee in the morning at the office. Great location to explore the island. Very close to the ferry

Nothing fancy here folks or cutesy curtains, antiques or breakfast but just a great place to stay that's affordable. Coffee is on in the morning and... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel for two nights in mid September. We are independent types who are not crazy about B and B's so we were pretty happy to get a house keeping cottage at the Surfside. It had everything we wanted. It was spacious, had a kitchen, and was with in walking distance to restaurants. The... More

We had two experiences with this motel in that our first four days were in the cottage/efficiency apartment but our last day was in a room with just one double bed. We came to the island for the natural beauty, the birds and the whales and were not disappointed. There are no stop lights or condos on the island. The... More

Grand Manan is not Bar Harbor or Hampton Beach and does not resemble (other than spectacular natural beauty) any of a number of over-populated resort areas. It is what it is - an island in the Bay of Fundy that time sort of left behind. If you know that going in, you will be pleasantly surprised by the area and,... More

Great location and easy access to the beach. Gorgeous views of the water, island offshore and sunsets. Excellent grounds for having large groups visit, complete with picnic tables, barbecues, and extra chairs. What makes this motel special, though, is Holly and Kirk (the innkeepers- sceond to none, and so accommodating), and the very friendly, efficient staff. ) What more could... More
