No matter what the weather or time of year. we can always count of the Surfside to deliver a great stay. Location is great and the staff is always friendly and accomodating. Have stayed anywhere else but the Surfside for probably over 10 years and have no plans to look for another place to stay!

Have been going to the Surf Side Hotel for over 20 years. They have always taken very good care of us. From the front desk to the breakfast lady, everyone is there to take care of any need you might have.The rooms are always clean and they are always updating the rooms and hotel.
We prefer the rooms on the south side of the main building as you can see the sun rise, the ocean and the sun set. Where else can you go to a hotel and see the owner working just like a regular employee? We will be back, either on motorcycle or vehicle.

Location lets them charge their prices but it soon will need some upgrades. They only offer a continental breakfast. Some hot choices would be nice for the price. Wine is offered in the late afternoon.

I have stayed at the Surf Side Hotel on several occasions because they provide consistanly excellent service from the checking-in process to the beautiful rooms and comfortable beds. There is an expansive breakfast offered in the morning and a small social in the evening. The view is beautiful. Surf Side is the best money you will spend on an ocean-front hotel.

When reviewing a property like this that has a good to excellent circle rating and many reviews, what do I say that hasn’t already been said many times before? For me, what I look for in this circumstance is the most recent reviews to see whether the property continues to earn positive reviews. Therefore I’ll provide this summary review.

When traveling, I look for places that are four to five circles in “trip advisor”, that are reasonably priced for the area, that offer a free breakfast and have free wireless internet service. This property met those conditions. We can confirm the wonderful things said about this property! All staff members we met were very nice, care about doing a nice job and should be commended. We wish to single out Michaela for recognition; she was especially welcoming and good to deal with. The property, built in the 1980’s, is family owned and faces the challenges of a property right on the ocean. A real effort is made to maintain the facility and we felt that was especially true in our room. It was a very nice, large room that was nicely appointed. The views of the ocean and the beach were truly excellent (we stayed in the South building, King, Ocean Front, 2nd floor). Breakfast was above average. Connecting to the internet may require you to contact the front desk for assistance but this place apparently has numerous servers to make sure you can get a good connection. We are really pleased with our stay at the Surf Side Hotel and can recommend it highly.

Room Tip: It is nice to not only see the ocean but be on it and to also see the beach as well. Higher is bett...

I'm sitting in a room that overlooks the pool and the ocean. The sliding door is open and I'm listening to the waves. The view is great. The room is roomy and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be coming back!
