“Beautiful Oceanfront Suite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Extremely spacious suite, exceptionally clean!! We truly enjoyed our stay at Surf Suites in Wrightsville Beach. Great location right next door to the Oceanic Pier/Oceanic Restaurant & Grill. This place is not fancy, so if you're looking for all the bells and whistles it's not the place for you. There is a nice swimming pool (unheated) on the property and that's about it. We love the beach for its tranquility...and that is what we got!! Since it's located at the south end of Wrightsville, we were able to walk down to the very southern tip of the beach to the inlet. Lots of nice shells!!! The price for our suite was very reasonable. Hotel staff was professional, but not overly friendly. We had a large king size bed; very comfy! We slept soundly with no outside noises. The full kitchen even had a mini dishwasher! Full fridge, full stove/oven, etc. Living room sofa pulls out to a large bed; also comfy. The balcony is extra wide to face the beach. Two chairs, table and lounge chair were nice. There is even a sliding enclosure to pull across the balcony for bad weather. l would recommend Surf Suites to couples, families with older children; high school age or older...not younger kids since there is not very much to do for entertainment. We went in April and it was very quiet, prices were low, but the ocean much too cold for swimming. Would definitely stay here again.

Really loved staying here. Greg the office manager was very polite and a great person to deal with. The price was great during the off season. The grounds were clean and well painted. From being a handicapped person it was easy access with a ramp leading up to the office and elevator. Hallways are outside leading to your room. Now comes the room. A long hallways leads in to the bedroom with a King sized mattress. The bedroom is a private room by itself so folks can still be in the living and kitchen while you sleep. next, is the large bathroom with tub & shower. The the main living area and kitchen. The kitchen has a full size fridge & freezer, full stove and oven, and a dishwasher. The room also comes with cooking utensils and plates and silverware. The living area has a large couch, dinning table with chairs, TV, and the room is air and heat controlled. The balcony is very large with chair & lounger. Plus, the balcony has lights that you control with a light switch. No more having the lights turn off from being on a timer or when the office say's "Lights Out." OH! The balcony is also over sized with 2 sliding glass doors. If you are looking for a great place to stay, This is the place!! We will be back for Christmas & New Years. Thanks again Greg for all you did

My family and I recently stayed here for three days and enjoyed the Surf Suites. The location is quiet - towards the south end the Wrightsville Beach. The beach was very clean, about 100 feet wide and near a pier that is being rebuilt (March 2013) - lots of shells for the kids to collect. We had a ground floor room - the front half towards the beach is a nice living room area with a flat screen tv, small table with three chairs, a big couch with a fold out bed (the kids said it was comfortable) and a kitchen with fairly new major appliances. The back half is the bathroom and bedroom - these are a bit dated, but very clean and comfortable. There is also a small outdoor pool is you need a break from the salt water. The staff was friendly and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: There are four floors - the view of the ocean gets better as you get higher.

We wanted to take a last minute fishing trip at Wrightsville beach and ended up staying at the Surf suites. We had a wonderful time. The staff was very accommodating and the rooms are immaculate. They are like little apartments with a beach view! With the low price and the fishing pier going up next door, We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: The fourth floor has great views, but for the price all the rooms great.

The rates are very good. The staff is accomodating. The door to our baloney did not lock. We saw cockroaches. We let them know. They said they have the rooms sprayed weekly. We saw them the day before we left or else we would have left. Cockroaches freak us out.

My husband & I recently spent 3 nights at the Surf. We've been going for many years and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean, comfortable & quiet! The staff is always helpful & professional. The all ocean front rooms are perfect for "counting the waves" and relaxing on the balcony. The only negative comment would be that the kitchen was a little scanty on the cooking utensils. We will definitely go again & would certainly recommend this property.

Room Tip: The upper floors provide a better ocean view

The Surf Suites is without question one of Wrightsville Beach's best kept secrets! It's been a while since my last stay so I decided to go do some studying this weekend. The quality, service and front office personnel remain awesome. There is nothing like the ability to walking out of your condo onto your own patio, then out onto a well-maintained yard then out directly on the beach....basically secluded!!!!

The atmosphere is nice and simple. Then to top that off, there is the Oceanic Seafood Restaurant is right next door!!! TOTALLY AWESOME!!!

Room Tip: Bottom floor provides instant access to beach.
