Clean, no noise from other rooms, most all rooms have a Ocean view of some type, friendly staff, . Breakfast in am. Just need to work on having more coffee for those die hard coffee drinkers! Otherwise...nice stay...keep in mind...older place...but clean, right on the beach, which makes it nice! We go every year just for a little get away! Close to shops/restaurants! Give a try!

Where do we start? As soon as we arrived everyone was friendly and made you feel like they had know you all your life. We had never been there before and the staff as so wonderful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They offer a wonderful breakfast and they have a wine and cheese social everyday. We never saw any of them without a smile and a friendly hello. We have told so many about this wonderful place and on top of it we have already set up for our vacation next year here. They do not disappoint. You can't go wrong.

Beautiful location and a lovely hotel. Felt pampered and well cared for. The view was gorgeous. The staff was very polite and attentive. The little extras like the wine and cheese happy hour were nice. Breakfast was very nice. Our room was on the top floor pool side and we could see the ocean and the sound from the balcony. We will be staying there again in the future. Great for a short stay.

We had not stayed at Surf Side before though we have been guests to the OBX for 30 years! We usually stay at Sea Ranch but they were booked so I was a bit nervous Surf Side would not be nearly as comfortable. I am so GLAD I WAS WRONG! The hotel is clean, the staff is super friendly and helpful and the room was very comfortable. My husband and I both have bad backs and a good nights sleep away from home is always a concern but we both slept like babies. Our room was Oceanfront on the first floor. It was a delight to enjoy the sunrises, pelicans and porpoise sightings from our balcony. We will definitely return.

It was a good place to stay. We were there before many years ago and it remains a nice spot -- pleasant service, comfortable rooms and an appealing breakfast. We were pleased overall with the experience.

This place is an extremely enjoyable environment with lots of amenities and things to do. The breakfast is one of the best out of any hotel and we loved the wine social. The indoor and out door pools are kept up great. The rooms are beautiful and we’ll maintained. The best part by far is the staff. Each and every one of you made our vacation even more enjoyable. Till next year be safe y’all.

My daughter, two grandchildren, and myself came the second week of June. Staff was great to return phone call s that had previously been made. We were able to sit on our deck and see side view of ocean which was perfectly fine with us. The room was nice and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast each morning gave lots of choices from two different types of quiche to biscuit sandwiches. Coffee was great! The pool was clean and plenty of chaise lounges to lay on. It was very easy to access restaurants and shops. Wine and cookies were served in the late afternoons. I would definitely book this hotel again upon returning to the Outer Banks.

Surf Side is centrally located for restaurants, activities, and attractions. The beach is just steps away, the pool is very large and well maintained. They serve a delicious breakfast every morning and anything you need, they are right there making your stay pleasant and memorable.
