Laid back resort right across the street from the Gulf. Quiet beach with little traffic. Lots of great dining spots close by. Rooms are clean but bathrooms are a bit dated (60's). Good value for the area.

It was a great location for a quick getaway with friends, everything we needed was right there. Fully furnished kitchen to avoid crowded restaurants and very short walk to a private beach area. There was a Publix close by and actually very little we needed. An outdoor grilling area is available for use and even beach towels are provided!! The... More

My family of four had a great time. Staff is warm and friendly, rooms are basic but clean, and the beach was great. Having beach attendants available for chairs and umbrellas is what sold us on this place. We can't wait to go back.

Stay in the 200 building. Property great since renovation; added BBQ and picnic tables added. Pool well maintained. Great private beach with amenities. Wish we could stay longer! Wish TV was larger in the 100's rooms with larger bathrooms. Front desk help are knowledgeable and courteous - made great recommendations.

My husband and I have stayed at the Silver Surf for about 8 years now. I love the renovations! The staff has always been helpful and friendly.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. Good things. You get cookies when you check in; staff was friendly and helpful; nice beach with beach chairs available; convenient to jet ski and kayak rentals; continental breakfast available; microwave and fridge in room; wifi included. Things I didn't like. The decor reminded us of a Motel 6. Extremely basic.... More

We stayed here for four days celebrating our first anniversary. When we got to our room, they had placed rose petals and candles on our bed and around the room. Also had a "Happy Anniversary" card on the table. I thought that was a nice touch. The room was very clean and seemed recently updated. We had a king room... More
