My family and I enjoyed our weekend stay here. Even though the hotel was going through minor renovations we could barely tell. The view and accommodations were spectacular. The room was well maintained plus the staff was helpful and friendly. We definitely will be staying again!

We received a warm welcome from Cheryl at the front desk who immediately offered us complimentary wine and snacks in the lobby. Our room was spotless and situated with a spectacular view of the ocean. Even though the hotel was undergoing minor renovations, you could hardly tell.

Room was great! Very clean, very spacious. Staff were very nice. Can't beat the location. Room was not ready upon arrival (we were an hour early for check in), a little disappointing after a long drive, but understandable.

Cheryl was very helpful getting us upgraded since room was not ready. On the beach with balcony No smoking and no pets was a bonus due to my allergies. Nice breakfast options included. We will be back.

Our stays here are always fantastic. The rooms are very well kept, the staff pays attention to a lot of detail. Very friendly and accommodating to any extra needs we had. As I said , we stay there every year. One cant really find a better place than the Surf Side

Looking for a place for Saturday night. Stopped at Surf Side. First thing the ladies behind the counter greeted me with a smile spoke to me like they knew me.. They where very helpful to find a room that I like (upper floor). The room was very nice & clean .My wife was happy. You know how that works (...
