“The Surfside is the place to stay in Carolina Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

If your looking for a great place to stay whether it be for a quick weekend trip or a week long vacation, The Surfside Lodge is the place to stay in Carolina Beach. It is located right in the heart of Carolina Beach and you can walk to everything. The staff is so friendly and eager to do anything that they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. I have personally stayed there for the last three years and I am pleased, so pleased with them! I will be returning to stay with them in just a few weeks in June and then again this August. Whether you go alone for some just me time or take your family (I have done both) you will enjoy your stay there and want to go back again and again. Brenda the Manager there is wonderful, and will go out of her way to work with you and make sure that you get the accomidations that you need and are looking for. The place is very clean as well. Even the grounds are well kept and so relaxing and refreshing. I know that me and my family plan to continue to stay there year after year and don't mind telling our friends and other family how much we enjoy it and recommend it highly!

Room Tip: 36 is my personal favorite room. It has a double bed, full kitchen and a private ocean front balcony...

My husband and I were married last year in May and our entire family and friends booked rooms at your hotel to attend our perfect beach wedding in front of your hotel. (By the way I love that your hotel shared our pictures of our wedding and reception by the pool) the staff have always been so nice and right there when needed! Mrs. Brenda Godwin is AWESOME and provides the best customer service that I have ever experienced from any other place I have stayed at on Carolina Beach!! We had left my wedding dress in our room this past weekend May 3-5th and I was totally freaking, I contact the hotel and she mailed it to me within a few days, that to me shows a great hotel that cares about their customers, this hotel will be the only one my family will ever stay at again its all due to the wonderful customer service from all your staff! Thanks again for a wonderful experience your hotel has provided to us and our family!!! We refuse to stay at any other hotel besides..Surfside Motor Lodge :)

My husband I stayed here in April 2013 and was thoroughly impressed. We parked car and were able to walk everywhere we went. The location of this hotel was great, the service was amazing and the staff was very pleasant. Brenda - the general manager was so friendly. Even on the first floor where we didn't have an ocean view, you could walk to the ocean in under 15 seconds!!! I would definitely recommend this place!

Surfside has the best service. Even my kids love it. They have the best view to look at the Beach. I love to stay there, the workers are so kind and friendly. I went there in April 3013. The Motel is so clean and is a great hotel to go to if you like to go fishing. The hotel is so close to the boats you can walk to them.The sufside is the best place to stay.

This is in an excellent location, close to the boats, ocean and boardwalk. Excellent view, we was treated like family from the office staff to the housekeepers. We got everything we asked for. The room was very clean. I have no complaints about my stay at Surfside, planning on returning very soon.

I took a family trip and stayed with surf side front lodge, I really loved the location it was right on the beach next to everything including the boardwalk and prices were a good deal. The service could have been better I did t get any towels when I asked. Also there was still sand and the bed from the guest before, other than that it was pretty good.
