Very nice place. It is clean and well kept. Complimentary continental breakfast was great, perfect for what we typically eat. The bed was comfy too. There's lounge chairs and umbrellas at the beach for guests as well as large beach towels. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Looking forward to returning!

We stayed at Silver Surf again because it's in a great location, right across from a beautiful beach. They provide beach chairs and umbrellas so that's a plus! Overall it was a nice stay and the ladies at check in and check out were super nice. The hotel is older but still nice! We had an issue with our AC... More

My husband and I went to Florida for a short "get away". We loved staying at the Silver Surf at Bradenton Beach. Their beautiful private beach was just a few steps away. It was easy to walk back to our room, and back to the beach. The sunsets were amazing. Free breakfast was delicious. We had a studio which was... More

The staff is very friendly and tries hard to be helpful. Our room was clean and the bed was super comfortable. The resort is very near everything on Anna Maria Island. The sunset is NOT to be missed! And swimming in the Gulf in the early morning when no one was on the beach was sublime! We WILL be back!

We enjoyed staying here! The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. I especially loved the view of the Gulf and watching the sunset. We will definitely be back. I'm so glad this island is close to home, only took us less than 2 hours to drive.

We stayed at the Silver Surf resort for my birthday. We have been vacationing at the resort every year for at least 8 years. We are never disappointed. The private beach across the street rocks! There is a lot of dining options that are GREAT within walking distance. I would TOTALLY recommend this resort!

The room is very clean. The pool was not. The staff is very friendly. I have stayed here many times and cannot complain. Usually it is a quiet older crowd. There happened to be a large group of loud people this time around. Wouldnt care except they liked to stand and look in our room. We closed the blinds and... More
