great hotel right on the beach. very clean, which is always a plus for me. no pets, another plus for me. staff was very friendly and helpful. good location.
breakfast was good. fresh fruit cut up was a added feature. coffee could have been better, but only because I like a stronger brew. we will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: we stayed on the south side looking down the beach and pool on the third floor.

My wife and I decided on the spur of the moment to go to the Outer Banks, NC on a last minute getaway. We stayed at the Surf Side the previous year and decided to return. I did not have a reservation but they had availability. I let them know that I was a returning guest and that we stayed here the previous year. They had us in their system. I had to ask for the loyalty discount and was assigned a room in the main building on the 2nd floor next to the elevator. We had a view of the parking lot and north beach. It was very windy and cold. The beach access was blocked by sand and the door that leads to beach access was locked because of the high winds. We were not informed of this on check in. Although it was a pleasant stay, we did not feel the room was of the same quality as the previous stay. There was debris on the floor in the room when we checked in, the hinges on the bathroom door were rusty, and the towel hook in the bathroom was broken off. We tried the continental breakfast and it was adequate. The common areas need some attention. I will consider this hotel on future visits.

Room Tip: Ocean side rooms have a better view if they are closer to the ocean. Choose a room that faces the south. 2nd floor and above have the best view.

We stayed at the Surf Side Hotel for a long weekend getaway...same building, same exact room number as last year and we'll be back next year for sure. Our room was clean just like last year and the oceanfront views were oh so perfect. We tried the continental breakfast this year and it was better than many we've had. I particularly enjoyed the hot cream-chipped beef and fresh biscuits. Thanks Surf Side for the wonderful customer service and relaxing accommodations.

Room Tip: Go for the Oceanfront Jacuzzi Suite in the South Building...you won't be disappointed!!

We have stayed at Surf Side Hotel for three years in a row and twice this year. Very clean and comfortable stay. Easy access to the beach, polite staff and decent complimentary breakfast! Wine social everyday from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. is a definite plus. Overall, this hotel is a bit more expensive than your average chain hotel, but cleaner with friendlier staff.

Room Tip: If you want to see the ocean, you need to stay on the 3rd or 4th floor.
