Silver Surf Gulf Beach Resort was wonderful! The staff was exceptional and the amenities are great. The private beach is right across the street and there is plenty of sunshine to go around. I will definitely come back.

Wonderful stay! Friendly staff who were willing to help with anything. Beautiful beach and convenient chairs and umbrellas. Very comfortable beds, quiet rooms for a restful nights sleep. Would have liked darker blinds for early sun. Loved the convenient trolley right outside the door and restaurants close by. Will definitely come again!

We booked this hotel last minute Labor Day Weekend after we discovered the beach had been washed out at the hotel we had originally booked in Clearwater as a result of Hermine. I think the only reason we lucked into this hotel is because other people canceled their trips as a result of the hurricane as well. The front desk... More

We enjoyed our anniversary here and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. they even left us an anniversary card and fake rose petals. I love the space and layout of the room, as well as the fake candles that gave good lighting at night. The building and view and beach are all wonderful. Highly recommended!

I won this vacation spot on Florida Vacation Auction and it was worth it. Although the interior rooms were old, they were clean! Great time of year since it was off season! No crowds! Great staff and we loved the continental breakfast!
