“Couldn't ask for anything more.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Driving down the A1A, you see a lot of these small privately-owned hotels on the street that you have never heard of. It's usually a hit or miss when you pick one. This one is definitely a hit. It is very charming.

The attendant at the front desk was friendly and bilingual. The room was very clean. There wasn't a speck of dirt or sand in the place. I was surprised to see a nice flat-screen TV, microwave, and refrigerator considering the price of the room. It was well worth it.

Not to mention the location. The Atlantic ocean is practically in the backyard! Shops and restaurants are within walking distance, too.

Room Tip: Not a very large hotel. I imagine all the rooms are the same. It's a two-story hotel and I don...

We stayed here at the end of July, beginning of August for 2 nights. We opted for an efficiency room because we wanted a bathtub vs. a shower stall. The hotel was spotless. The location is just across the street from the ocean. The only reason we gave a low score on "sleep quality" is because the verical blinds did not block out the street light. The closet space was huge. Will definitely stay here again.

I have been coming here for about 9 years now. The owners are very friendly and the hotel is nice, clean, and close to the beach. I highly recommend it to people looking for a relaxing/laid back area to spend a vacation. The beach is nice! Once you come here once you will always want to come back.

We stayed one night at Surf Side Resort on our way to Key West. The motel and the pool area look good and the beach is close by. The room was spotless and as it had a kitchenette it could clearly accommodate for longer stays as well. We were very happy with our choice and felt Surf Side Resort was definitely good value for the money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Frankly, we usually stay in more upscale places, but we had a situation where we needed something close to where we live and inexpensive for a few days and we booked this. It did not disappoint. The first thing is the place has a lot of old Florida charm as it is small and has a lot of older tropical bushes and palm trees growing all aound. It's spotlessly clean although it is It's simple. For example, our room had a night table with a lamp on one side of the bed and a chair on the other, so there was no lamp for reading in bed on one side of the bed. The furniture was old fashioned, but not shabby at all. The bathroom had been updated. The night we arrived we had a late swim in the pool which is a decent size and is surrounded by an adequate number of chairs and some tables. There are barbques and a soda machine. We did not need a room with a full kitchen, but saw that some people did. There are no services to speak of besides housekeeping which came daily. You check in and check out and that pretty much takes care of it. But the ocean and public beach are a short walk from the Surfside. I found its simplicity and old Florida atmosphere charming, the cleanliness of the property overall greatly contributed to my feelings about the place. A convenient location as well with an all night convenience store and 24 hour Walgreen's a few minutes away in the car. A good buy for the money. I recommend it for anyone not looking for a tiki bar, restaurants, fitness rooms, etc. You may want to bring your own beach and pool towels. There are plenty in the general area. This is a good place for making your own fun.

Found this motel as it was going dark so couldn't really appreciate it until the following day. Stayed 2 nights on our journey up to Orlando and it was ideal. Walking distance to a nice Irish bar and virtually 25 yards from the beach. Spotless and also a reasonable price.
