My husband and I stayed here for three days in August. There are not a lot of hotels on the beach and this one is in a great location. It is within walking distance to the pier and close to many restaurants. The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful and the pool lounges plentiful and comfortable. There are even...

Great views. Kind and helpful employees. Breakfast excellent. Coffee, tea lemonade available all day. Great location. We will be back!! Spur of the moment vacation turned into 3 day stay. Views from balcony not to be missed, even in 'off season'. Evening wine and snacks, what's not to like?

We had a very clean, large room, experienced friendly service and will return to The Surf Side as often as we can. The staff was great! They were beyond helpful. We checked out, unknowingly leaving behind a bag with a laptop and jewelry inside it. Within an hour we were called by staff to tell us they found the bag,...

We were very pleased with our experience at Surf Side. The hotel was very clean, and the linens and bedding were very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Nags Head area.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. It was our first trip to Nags Head and Surf Side was an excellent choice. We chose it based on all of its positive reviews. My only complaint is with the shower head/water pressure in the shower. When you come in off of the beach and are grimy with sand and sunblock,...

After reading so many positive reviews of the Surfside Hotel, our family of five chose to stay there this past week. The hotel is as clean as can be, the staff is friendly and accommodating. It is a true beach hotel with a lovely pool, great views and a comfortable clean room. The decor is simple, closet space adequate and...

Overall, we liked this hotel. It has a small lobby, and not much room for hanging around downstairs. But, of course, that's not why you go to Nags Head. The staff is friendly, and they go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. They have a decent continental breakfast and free boxed wine in the late afternoon. My...

My only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer. The room was exactly as described online and by the pictures. This is a small hotel with wonderful views of the ocean. It's not crowded and the staff is very pleasant. We ended up shortening our stay because our dogs became ill. Dawn the manager was very accommodating and refunded...

My wife and I love staying here for a variety of reasons. Proximity to ocean and surrounding attractions, friendly service, and cleanliness of room and grounds. I would suggest improvements in the bathroom. (Specifically the shower curtains/rods)

We loved this hotel. The staff was friendly and so helpful! We had a double queen oceanfront room. The room was very clean, spacious and welcoming. The continental breakfast was so good and saved us a lot of money. Housekeeping was so friendly and efficient, always fresh towels. LOVED THIS PLACE!!!!!!
