I had the unfortunate occasion to stay at the Surfside a few years ago.
It was absolutely the most disgusting place I have ever seen. The air conditioning didn't work and had many slats missing from the front of it. The door did not lock properly so anyone could push their way into the room. The knob was missing on the tv so the station could not be changed. A single light bulb hung in the room as a source of light. The sink was backed up with black scummy water. Inside the drawers in the desk it appeared that someone had vomitted and it had never been cleaned. The room was dirty and scummy. I would never stay there again!!!!

You could not find a more disgusting hotel if you searched for the rest of your life. If you can get past the disgusting smell, and actually set foot in the room you would find most of the rooms contents to be broken, filthly and moldy. My recommendation , find a different motel.

Surside has a nice looking ad and looks decent from the outside but overall the place is a DUMP. The shower curtain had mold, there was no towel rack, no remote control, no clock, no ice bucket. There was a ducktaped air conditioner, broken toilet seat, rusty shower fixtures, broken beads that teetered and rocked. Definately DO NOT stay here for vacation!!!!
