The room was large, fantastic view of the ocean with very nice chairs to sit and view the scenery. Beds were extremely comfortable, the happy hour was so nice to have available to travelers, breakfast was outstanding, and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful! The price was reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel!

It was nice to talk directly with someone at the hotel when making a reservation instead of someone in "India"! The receptionists were welcoming and helpful. There was complimentary wine available in the lobby from 4-6 pm each day. Rooms were clean and nice, heavy chairs on the balcony overlooking the pool and great ocean view. The complimentary breakfast was...

Stayed here on a trip down the Outer Banks Scenic Highway, Clean, Oceanfront and a nice free breakfast. everything in the room worked fine but the real star of this property is location only a few miles from the bridge to Manteo, Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Jockey's Ridge. The homemade quiches on the breakfast bar was a nice surprise.

Hotel was clean, breakfast was great, beds comfortable and staff very friendly. Pool was great. Easy access to the beach. We will stay again, would have liked to stay longer, however there was a large wedding party that had booked most rooms.

The Surf Side is a comfortable beach hotel of the old style. Good location on the beach with a nice swimming pool. Our party was disappointed that there were not more ice machines. One notable, odd experience: I received a call on my room phone at 7 a.m. on Saturday from the "desk clerk" informing me that there was a...

Thanks so much to Cheryl and Tonya at the front desk, we had an excellent stay! Our original room did not meet our hopes, so Cheryl and Tonya buried their heads in the computer and found an amazing ocean front option for us. They were so nice and so caring! Plus, the person arranging the breakfast was great (sorry I...
