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

Looking for just a really nice, super clean place to stay? Well you're in luck because The Surfside Motel in North Head, Grand Manan, New Brunswick, Canada is the place you want to go!

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

This was expensive for what it was, rooms from the 70s , cheap furniture that was in hard shape, thin walls so you could hear everything in the next room, . It was a non smoking room but apparently the room next to ours wasn't and I could smell cigarette smoke all night, I thought about going out and sleeping... More

At the ferry dock they said the motel was "just down the road". It's about 2 miles, so a good hike, although they will collect you if you call. And if you like hiking it's not a bad idea to leave your car on the mainland and save the cost of the ferry. The room itself is very 1950's; small... More

The Surfside is a simple motel on a semi-isolated island. It is not a resort or a Hilton or an establishment that advertises or provides a pampered stay. What it is: close to the ferry, good value, self-started fun, easy access to Grand Manan and all it has to offer. It does not have the type of rooms that you... More
