“Great stay for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Stayed 2 nights and 3 days with our young children. Perfect beach and great pool. Very clean and free breakfast with stay. Best price we found with last minute booking. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night. Great grills in front of the complex. Beach chairs and umbrellas provided on the beach, which was very convenient.

Just got back from a long weekend birthday getaway at the Silver Surf. After much research, booked the Silver Surf and was not disappointed. We stayed in a King suite on the second floor in the building facing the Gulf. There is no elevator to get to the floor, but it really wasn't an issue. So we had to climb some stairs, no big deal. The room was decorated like a cottage; beautiful blue walls & white trim, and had beautiful wooden white blinds on the windows. It was more than adequate in space; had a King size wonderfully comfortable bed, a small kitchen area (microwave, small fridge, toaster, and all the dinnerware/glasses/silverware you need; dining table & chairs, a vanity area and bathroom. (Bring paper plates/paper towels if you don't want to do dishes, lol.) A nice flat screen TV is on the wall. They knew it was my birthday weekend...there was a Happy Birthday wine glass with a candle inside and a birthday card waiting for me on the table when we got there. So nice of them! There is a private beach area just across the street for the Silver Surf patrons, and they provide beach umbrellas, beach chairs and even beach towels for you. The beach area is absolutely gorgeous, with a large expanse of white sands and warm waters of the Gulf. A free trolley that will take you the whole 7 miles of the island stops right out front of the resort. There are plenty of places to walk to as well, lots of little gift shops and great places to eat. It was hard to leave here, and we will most definitely go back again...it truly was a little piece of paradise!

Room Tip: Stayed in room 303, in the back building that gives you a view of the Gulf. Sun hits the windows in...

Stayed here for our anniversary. I believe Sherry was the person who checked us in and she told us we had a surprise in our room. The staff had decorated our room with rose petals and romantic tea light candles. Clean rooms with all the amenities and fully equipped kitchen. Continental breakfast provided. Nice pool that has a mechanical lift for those needed help getting into the pool. Ice is only available for purchase. There are vending machines for soft drinks. The best part is the walk across the street to the private beach. Coastal Watersports is right there offering jet ski rentals, sailing on Hoby or catamaran, and paddle boards. Their staff is very helpful and it was nice having them right across the street. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I.

Room Tip: 3rd floor of the east building gives you the best view of the beach.

Sara is Absolutely amazing ! She was very helpful in every aspect . The accommodations was nice ,very clean room ,short walk to the beach and they provide your beach chairs ... Only thing that would have made my stay nicer would have been for the pool to be a little more heated and to have some type of chairs to sit outside of your hotel room

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 on...

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.
