Our family just spent a week at Surf Side. The staff are very friendly and the entire facility is well-maintained. We enjoy the easy access to the beach and the pools. The beach behind the hotel is wide and beautiful and never seems crowded even when the hotel is busy. This hotel is very close to many excellent restaurants and it is an easy trip to the Wright Memorial, Bodie Lighthouse, Manteo, and good shopping. This has been our family's favorite hotel at the Outer Banks for several years.
