“A delightful retreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stayed in the ocean view king loft and could not have been more pleased. The room was very clean with lots of little extras that made our stay very pleasant -- from wine in the afternoon (in the lobby) to the amenities in the room. It is evident that they put a lot of effort into keeping the hotel updated and comparable to bigger hotel chains (like Marriott and Hilton) but at very reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Restaurant and room service are not applicable. However, there is a fabulous restaurant just down t...

A wonderful stay over the New Years' weekend. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had an ocean front King room, which was spacious, with a couch and chair, and the bed was just right. It also included a microwave and a nice-sized refrigerator. Enjoyed having my morning coffee on the balcony watching the ocean. It was just a great relaxing way to start off the New Year.

This year was our second Christmas at the Surf Side Hotel. As last year, it was a great, relaxing get-away week being catered to by a cheerful and attentive staff. When we arrived, we asked for a few changes in the room layout and furnishings. The staff acted immediately to accommodate us. The complimentary breakfast and happy hour wine are great.

we have stayed at surfside over the Christmas holiday for several years. It is a very consistant positive experience. The facility is excellent, the staff consistantly excellent also. Would recommend it to anyone.
Construction noise in the AM should be avoided

This is the nicest non-resort beach hotel we have stayed in. Very clean, all of the necessary amenities, friendly staff. I highly recommend the corner suite on the top floor. We had a great winter escape and should have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Corner suites have nicer views and 3 balconies.

We were helped along to this hotel by fellow trip advisor reviewers and the fact that we arrived late in the evening in the middle of December and it had a friendly glow among its closed-up neighbours. Immediately welcomed with warm apple cider and cookies! And given a great rate for a walk in with no reservation. The hotel was clean and comfortable, balcony and sea views. The free continental breakfast was one of the best we've had on our road trip - the presence of fruit on offer was appreciated!!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean views.

This is a perfect hotel to stay in for the Outer Banks Marathon - convenient to both the start and finish. The hotel is right on the beach, convenient to the main road, and is very comfortable. There are several very nice restaurants nearby. The Surf Side even opened the large and relatively nice breakfast at 5:30 AM for the runners. The breakfast staff person was very, very nice and helpful. Thank you!
Also, the room had a large refrigerator (nice for post race drinks) and a microwave. This hotel is an incredible value, great location, and comfortable. Thank you again.

Room Tip: Book an ocean view room - worth the extra price.
