My wife and two kids stayed here for a week and were very satisfied. The beach was great and the pools were clean. We had a nice view of the coast from our 3rd floor room. The room had two queens and provided plenty of room for us and our things. The complimentary breakfast was filling and the staff was... More

Just vacationed at the Surfside with my husband and our two teenagers. We booked here because of the outstanding reviews on Trip Advisor. I couldn't be happier with our stay. The hotel is extremely clean. Even the stairwell was spotless and smelled fresh! We stayed in one of the 4th floor lofts which gave us an extra room upstairs, perfect... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Surf Side celebrating my birthday. As always, the staff and accommodations were great! You can't get a better view of the ocean than one of the oceanfront rooms. Clean and spacious and a new comfortable mattress topper. I slept like I was on a Heavenly Bed! Thank you Surf Side for the comfortable... More

Recommendations were not wrong. Very nice, clean, good place to stay. Great location. Beds were not too soft. Location, location, location. Several people I spoke with come every year. Best of all, screen door to balcony, I fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves. Great deck chairs around the pool.

I did a thorough research and read reviews on several properties. Chose Surf Side and glad I did. Chose an oceanfront King bedroom and it was large, clean and comfortable. The hallways didn't have that worn out ocean smell most ocean front hotels have. This hotel is well maintained. Lobby area is not impressive but I don't think you'll be... More

We stayed there during a recent photo workshop. The hotel on drive up reminded me of the typical "shore" hotel I have seen on the Texas coast. We arrived late and our room was ready. To our surprise the halls spotless. The rugs and flooring did not have "the usual" appearance of a hotel right on the beach. The room... More

Though we have been visiting the Outer Banks of NC for 40 years this is our first stay at The Surf Side. Of all the above average hotels we have stayed with Surfside is in the top two. Pleasant scheduling, got the room type we asked. Property was well maintained, the building and rooms were immaculate. There was no old... More
