Over the last 8 years, I have travelled to Surfside Beach at least 3-4 times per year from my home in Columbia SC. Without a doubt,the very best beach value is the Surside Beach Resort. I have seen it undergo 3 renovations, one due to a kitchen fire. The latest renovation is the best. The rooms are large enough ,... More

We chose a not-so-great time to travel but boy did we pick the right place! MY girlfriend and I went on vacation for the memorial day weekend and it happens to be "Atlantic Bike Week" during that time. Either way we figured it would be busy, but the hotel was GREAT! we checked in way late, 11pm, and there was... More

Hotel is recently remodeled, and even better than 3 years ago, Nearby restaurants are great, but having the Surfside Pier and restaurant next door is what sets this apart. Breakfast on the pier is not to be missed! Staff is very helpful and knows area. Best meals we had this trip were at Bubbas across the street and River Ciry... More

This hotel is very nice and has great customer service. The hotel looks recently renovated and you are steps from the beach. Parking is also free. Only thing that would be nicer is if they offered a breakfast.

Dear edeindcr, We appreciate your comments on the hotel and that staff provided "great customer service". We have just renovated the rooms and the exterior of the hotel, including expanding the pool deck by 30% and adding the new veranda with a full view of the beach and pier.

The room was on the small side. Staff kindly moved us to a room with a small balcony when we asked. Nicely decorated, good price for right on the beach. The pool is nice, but lacks shady areas. Not a quiet beach getaway spot. More of a party area.

Under renovation, but was a good place to stay on the beach, though rooms did not open to the beach. Only one elevator, so it was slow getting up and down. Lobby is on the second floor. Multiple bars and eateries are a stone's throw away. Staff was courteous, rooms were clean and freshly renovated.

I booked two nights at this "resort" several months ago for arrival in late June. I had my reservation in place for no more than a week or so and when I cancelled (several months in advance) they charged me $25.00 penalty PER NIGHT. I think this is bad business to the extent that I am sure that room is... More
