This was the second time I visited this hotel. Last time we stayed in a nice, newer room. Apparently not all rooms are equal. This time,we stayed in the center building with no outer facing doors.The room was clean and the people were great. However the room smelled like mold and there were tiles in the bathroom and kitchen that...

I was mixed reviews before I booked, but I decided to give it a shot. Many places have a minimum night stay, so Surfsude looked like a good option. I was very wrong. Trust the bad reviews. The only positive thing about the place is location. It is right in town close to the marina, so many restaurants and bars...

I sincerely apologize that you didn't find our hotel to your liking. We do have plans at the end of the season to remodel our bathrooms. I will find out what we didn't connect with you when your room was ready. We have done a lot of upgrades to most of the property but there a few interior rooms that...

We had a fantastic time staying at the Surfside Lodge. Older motel but very clean. Big room. Awesome housekeeping service. Oceanfront and within walking distance to everything. We have found our new "go-to" beach location.

Our room was oceanfront, large and very clean. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The location is perfect! Its walking distance from a fantastic resturant (The Sea Witch), the boardwalk/amusement park, the party boat and more!

I stayed here with my 3 children for the first time during July 4th. We had a Double Queen with Kitchenette. It was a very large room and super easy to access the swimming pool and a few feet away from the beach. We felt very welcome and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful...

This hotel is old and in poor repair. The cheapest possible materials were used to build this place. We had broken tiles on our floor. The door to the room appeared to have been kicked-in at some point and then hastily 'repaired".That being said it was reasonably clean, and was the cheapest option we could find. The noise from the...

Have been staying at Surfside Lodge for over 20 years now. The staff is very friendly and always make our stay a great experience. Everything you could want in a beach trip is within walking distance. Can't wait to see everyone again in September when I host my family's reunion there!
