I stumbled across the Silver Surf via Groupon. We stayed 4 nights, and I could not have been happier with the accommodations, especially for the price! Keep in mind, there are no high-rise, chain hotels on Anna Maria Island. It is a very quaint, mostly residential island. Silver Surf is an old-school motel with 100% modern day updates and renovations. It is so clean, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the private beach is so beautiful. Chairs and beach towels are provided (as many as you need), the kitchenette is clean and functional, a/c works great. And, they take their family-friendly policy very seriously. I would definitely consider staying here on my next trip to AMI! Thanks, Silver Surf, for a terrific vacation!
