Great location, walking distance. Clean rooms and very spacious. Staff was friendly- quick easy process for check-in and out. HIGHLY recommend and will personally return for a get-a-way. Light breakfast items and coffee was REALLY GOOD-- which I needed every morning. Parking is convenient and easy, elevator with luggage rack if needed and/or stairs- truly impressed for a "beach" resort--... More

Loved this hotel. The room was very large and very clean. It was very close to the beach. The hotel included the lounge chairs, umbrella. Beach towels, and a tiki if you wanted it. All this was also included with the room. The pool was beautiful. We would definitely come back. We loved it.

Having never been to Anna Maria Island, it was hard to pick a hotel. We hit the jackpot at the Silver Surf. The location is ideal--a few steps to a private beach and close to a couple of good restaurants. The hotel room was small, but perfect in every detail. They thought of everything that we needed. They provided beach... More

We ended up staying during a tropical storm so our stay wasn't typical. The pool was a little dirty but I attribute that to the storm. Water pressure in the shower was pretty bad and the beds weren't very comfortable. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly.

This is an older property. It has been maintained however it is still outdated. You know its retro when the first thing you see before you enter your room is an old time ash tray sitting outside your room with chairs and a table and they actually gave you "keys" for your room!

Denice, I hear your frustration regarding the size of the room you booked as well as its retro qualities . These aspects are factored into our room prices, which we think are reasonable considering the close beach access.

Overall a very enjoyable stay and liked the proximity to the beach, all the beach equipment being provided, and the daily continental breakfast. Coffee was as good or better than Starbucks. Look forward to the next visit.
