“Ah, beach, ocean and sun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is my second stay at Surf Side Hotel. I like the corner room suite which has 3 balconies and a pocket door with sofa bed so guests can have some privacy while staying together. The room is clean, the staff is friendly, the complimentary breakfast is an added treat.

Visiting in March, there is not a lot of traffic and many shoppes are open with some good sales. It is not the "in" season, so there are a lot of places closed.

It's not a bad 1hr drive, to escape and rest up with the laid back scenery and ocean salt air---sweet!

Room Tip: Corner suites are roomy and have 3 separate balconies. Also, there is a pocket door to separate the...

I have been travelling to the Outer Banks for many years for fishing and vacation, and the Surfside Hotel has been my favorite destination. The staff is friendly and very accomodating. The rooms are spacious with great views and more importantly, very clean. Thanks to Larry for a great stay and I look forward to visiting the Surfside very soon.

Room Tip: Be sure to request Oceanfront view, it is spectacular

I really love when a reviewer lets me and others know about the great service our team delivers. Larry and the front desk crew work hard at delivering a special experience while staying with us on the Outer Banks so that your first stay with us will be the first of many to come. Thank you for continuing to be a wonderful repeat guest and for your kind words in your review, it is sincerely appreciated.

This hotel has the hometown feel. The desk clerk made you feel like one of the family. Their indoor pool was fantastic, especially with the cold windy nights of winter. The breakfast was great. You don't have to have a ocean front room to have a great view. It is reasonably price for all the amenities.

We arrived today (a nice day in Feb.) and found our room amazing. The view of the ocean from our room is spectacular. The desk clerk could not have been more helpful. The off season rate is unbelievable. If we come back to the outer banks we definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at least on the second floor for the best views.

We have been vacationing at the Outer Banks for over 20 years and for the last 3 years at the Surf Side Hotel. The atmosphere and hotel staff are what keeps us coming back. Very up to date and clean rooms. Also to note is the clean hotel grounds. Larry,at the front desk, courteous and professional. Great hotel to stay at!

The Surf Side Hotel is a one of a kind experience! We have stayed here on multiple occasions and plan on coming back with our family for many years to come. The rooms are spacious and clean with a million dollar view! The staff is friendly and welcoming. You will not feel like you are staying at a hotel, they make you feel like they have known you for years and they remember you when you come back! They go above and beyond to make your stay memorable and special! Be sure to make a point of going to the continental breakfast each morning and the evening social hour! These are all great opportunities to meet other guests and talk with the staff about places to visit and restaurants to try out. The location is perfect and gives you accesibility to many local attractions, restaurants, and shops even in the winter! If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Nags Head you will not be dissapointed!

Thank you for making our stay wonderful! We will be back next year!

You have hit all of the points that we work hard to deliver to our guests. The amazing team we have at the Surf Side strives to deliver what you experienced so I am truly grateful for your review and your time to put it together and share on Tripadvisor.

Very clean property!! The internet photos of the room are just like the actual rooms. What a pleasant surprise. Especially enjoyed the NO PET POLICY was able to feel free to enter property with ease, not having pet roaming the property and worrying about dog hair and fleas. The staff was polite and welcoming.

Room Tip: 2nd floor oceanfront king room wih sofa and side chair as an at home flair.
