“Review of our vacation stay at Surf Side Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014

We stayed on the 3rd floor corner room beach front.. Great for taking breath taking pictures of the sunrise!! Absolutely beautiful view!! Room was clean, bright and amply supplied with towels etc. The housekeeping staff was excellent and the office staff was extremely helpful. Breakfast is great with a large selection of food
Tasha was the greatest as she is each time we are there. I highly recommend this hotel for its cleanliness and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try to book a corner beachfront room 3rd or fourth floor Corner suites are large and bright.

Our family just spent a week at Surf Side. The staff are very friendly and the entire facility is well-maintained. We enjoy the easy access to the beach and the pools. The beach behind the hotel is wide and beautiful and never seems crowded even when the hotel is busy. This hotel is very close to many excellent restaurants and it is an easy trip to the Wright Memorial, Bodie Lighthouse, Manteo, and good shopping. This has been our family's favorite hotel at the Outer Banks for several years.

Room Tip: All rooms have a beach view. The rooms facing only the ocean (oceanfront) are very nice but we like...

My family and I have been staying at Surf Side for years. We missed 2013 when we rented a house instead in Corolla. We were back this year and it looks like there were some great updates to the décor, a new deck in the front of the hotel and new items available for the complimentary breakfast (make your own waffles - YUM!). But it is the constants that keep us coming back - great service, friendly staff, a very clean room, beautiful beach, indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub. A big shout out to TASHA who took care of our 3rd floor suite. Room was always kept so nice and she is a sweatheart!. Thanks Surf Side for a wonderful stay!

This was my familie's 12th year at the Surf Side. The facility is clean and well maintained. The staff are always attentive and responsive to any of your needs. All the amenities (breakfast, evening wine event, access to beach, multiple pools) make it a facility you will enjoy, as we do each year.

Room Tip: All rooms are either ocean front, or ocean facing. Make sure you ask for what you want, but all hav...

We visited Nags Head as the first vacation with my daughters ages 4 & 1. Surf side was awesome! Rooms and lounging areas were clean. They have a breakfast room that has a little. Bit of everything, my girls love the hotel. I'm already planning are 2nd trip back and recruited my brother to take his family!

My wife and just checked out of Surf Side. Great service, beautiful view from our balcony. Our room was ocean-facing on the 3rd floor and had a jacuzzi. The free breakfast was great too.

I booked at this hotel based solely on the Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. I'm hoping this helps the next traveler.

Expectations were meet. Above and beyond. When requesting a room, the front desk could sense we were looking for something...beyond the normal room. She quickly and politely offered to take us to look at the rooms and view that were available! From the start to the end awesome staff and great views!
