Nice place to stay, room clean, sheets soft, bed comfortable. Everyone at the front desk is overly nice and accommodating. Morning continental breakfast is convenient and a nice touch, hard boiled eggs, different types of bread to toast, bagels, PB/ Jelly, butter, cream cheese , danishes, coffee, different juices. Beach and water are steps away from private beach with chairs, umbrella and towels provided. Cleaning staff is excellent also, someone is always cleaning something. What more could you ask for???

The Silver Surf is an awesome place to stay. Can’t beat the location & price. They maintain this property very well. They have different sizes of rooms depending on how many people are going to share a room & have adjoining rooms if needed. The rooms are comfortable & the staff are very friendly. This was the third time we had stayed here. Several of our family members have also stayed here. We will definitely come back here!

The rooms are a little dated, but clean. Beds and pillows are not super comfortable, but staff is friendly! Location right across from the private beach access is great! Trolley access close and within walking distance of lots of things!

We made a return visit to Silver Surf this year, and enjoyed every minute. This is a comfortable, reasonably priced resort. Love the private beach, and that the chairs and umbrellas are set up for us - no hauling those to the beach! Daily housekeeping is still provided, which is becoming so rare. Our room was very clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. We had a kitchen in our room, and while I didn't do any cooking, we made good use of the refrigerator. Also appreciated the laundry facility on the premises. I think the only small issue was that the air conditioner was somewhat noisy and struggled to cool the room enough, but we were fine. All the employees were very pleasant. Hope to be back again!

This was a last minute get away as we are very active Real Estate Brokers and needed a break. We booked via phone call and Julie and so helpful. When we arrived and checked in, it was quick and convenient with the touch pad entry doors and also secure. Our stay was very relaxing and restful and we decided to stay an extra day. Our only issue and concern was the safety grab bar came out of the wall when I was trying to get out of the tub and I fell back against the tub, bruised & sore. So thankful it was not more serious and nothing was broken. We rated the sleep quality poor due to the AC closeness to the bed and it blew directly on the person on that side.

Let’s start with the good. Staff all nice. Free parking. Free beach chairs. Free bus for the island right out the front. Close to some good bars and restaurants. Ice machines. Nice pool The not so good. Rooms were in clearly need of refurbishment. Dusty rooms (I had to clean the ceiling fans with baked on dust). Tiny fridge. The bed and pull out beds were just not that good. Breakfast was just bad The real reason is for what we got the price was high
