This was our first time staying at Surf Side hotel and we will definitely be coming back. The rooms are large, clean, nicely decorated and our view from our oceanfront balcony was amazing! The hotel is located next to great restaurants and close to lots of tourist attractions. There are two pools which we pretty much had the one to... More

We just returned from this hotel that was rated #2 by Tripadvisor. In the past, these ratings have been spot-on, and we have come to faithfully rely on them. It is beyond me to understand how this hotel earned this rating. The best part of their service is their breakfast which was better than one would expect and nicely done.... More

Stayed 4 nights. Best free breakfast I've ever had. Room was nice with all the accessories you need. Mattress was a little hard for my taste, and the bathroom kinda small. Free wine & salsa in afternoon was unexpected but nice. Great location.

We stayed in the smaller building, 1st floor, which is up 2 flights of stairs. No elevator in that building. Our room was really nice. We had a full kitchen with breakfast bar, king size bed, couch, table and chairs and large whirlpool tub. Balcony overlooking the ocean with a partially obstructed view from the sand dune. Still a good... More

Surf Side Hotel offers the most sought after location. Oceanfront with a nice pool to cool off after a relaxing day at the beach! They have an early hour wine social hour which can provide information from others about where to eat and what to see. Although the hotel is a little dated our room was large and comfortable. Another... More
