It's a simple but perfect place. Nothing fancy about the accommodations but the kitchen is fully equipped and we were comfortable with 4 people in our room. (Queen bed plus murphy queen bed and 2 'chair' single beds.) They are across the street from their private beach - you get beach towels when you check in and on the beach you can get chaises for free. The staff was helpful and let us stay parked there after our checkout (there are parking passes provided at check in). The pool is very nice. It is convenient to all the shops and restaurants either by walking, car or the trolley. (Beware, parking is not easy in Bradenton Beach.) Yes, we would definitely stay there again.

We stayed 3 nights at Silver Surf. Clean & comfortable. Unbelievably comfortable bed (agree with an earlier reviewer - Hilton-like). Friendly & responsive staff. We walked to breakfast & dinner several times. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: A few rooms have 'turn around' bathrooms & therefore slightly lower prices. We chose one of these rooms. The bathroom truly was tiny but it was fine for us.

We stayed four nights and found it to be a great experience, will stay again. Very clean, nice staff, free parking, walk to beach, didn't think we should pay for ice though, that should come with room price. Thank you for the nice time.

The atmosphere at Silver Surf was very laid back. Our room was not cleaned for 3 days in a row. We had to borrow TP and Towels from the neighboring room. It seemed like the staff had forgotten about our 1 room. We brought 8 guests to the resort at the same time, and I would think that we would have at least received the standard customer service. The Window mounted Air Conditioner left water on the deck where entry into the room was impossible without stepping in a puddle. The office does not open until 9 AM, so the advertised continental breakfast was unavailable until then. If we return to Bradenton Beach, we will seek better accomodations.

Room Tip: Great Beach Access is all this place has going for it.

Dear Mr Robert I., I am sorry that you found our hotel to be less than expected. We do provide daily maid service (which includes making your beds, replacing towels, cleaning your dishes, the bathroom/vanity area and mopping of your floors) when we are allowed in the room by the guest. I have been able to successfully find your reservation based on your first name, last initial and city, state and it was noted on our housekeeping report that you did receive service your first day and then two of your three days with us, a young man in the room requested "towels only" one day and declined service the next day on your behalf. This will explain why everyone else in your group received maid service except for your room. Our complimentary "grab & go" continental breakfast is not meant to replace your early morning breakfast, although we find most people are using it as their breakfast and we are happy to see that many, many people appreciate this feature that, as of this time, cannot be found anywhere else on the island except at our sister hotel, Bridgewalk.

We spent one night here and truly enjoyed our visit and relaxed. The accommodation was fine and the beach and sun were right out the front door! The staff was most helpful and very friendly, and Sarah especially stood out. The beds were huge and comfy. Only one slight difficulty: once the hide-a-bed for our girls was open, it was very hard to walk between the front of the room and the back where the bathroom was. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
