“relaxed atmosphere, right on the ocean”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The Surfside is a good place to relax for a few days near the ocean. They keep the place reasonably clean considering everyone come in with feet dusted with beach sand. The room are comfortable and the furniture and bathroom appropriate for a beach hotel. They serve breakfast from 7:30 to 10. It's self- service similar to a Holiday Inn Express. They also have a free wine and snack time from 4-6 pm. The front desk people were more friendly than the norm. It's one block off Nags Head's main drag. Lots to do and see within a short drive. Not cheap but given its proximity to the ocean and location, a pretty good deal.

Thank you so much for the kind review. I believe you may have inadvertently reviewed the wrong property as we are in Carolina Beach and you mentioned Nags Head. Also, we don't serve breakfast at the property. Thank you. Barry Eagle

Staying here was just like one of the best trips ever.....More than anything the front desk and other employees treated us just like their own family. They made our first trip their a fantastic one and you should really be proud of how they are managing your property.

Room Tip: The best room of all is room 20.....

We have been coming to Carolina Beach for 9 years now. There is no other place we would stay BUT Surfside. NO better location on the Island, 2 pools & the beach is just steps away, life is good! When we come there, which is about 7 to 8 times a year we just park the truck, & walk everywhere. Prices are reasonable, staff is always on hand for what ever we need. Either Brenda, Janet or Tim always answer the phone to set us up with the room we need, & Janice, Kay & Helen making sure the rooms are always clean and ready for when we arrive. Like I said before no better place to stay on the Island!!!!!!!1

I have stayed at the Surfside lodge for numerous years and just when i think it couldn't get any better they always keep the heart of Carolina Beach beating. Very affordable and convenient location, beach access and extremely close to the boardwalk where my family spends most of the time while we are there. The pool is great for relaxing and the staff is always friendly and prompt, rooms are always clean, you guys are doing upgrades since we last stayed and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I will always frequent the Surfside Lodge it is definitely my families home away from home. See you guys next year thanks for all the memories!!!!

Great location, right near the boardwalk. Room was $175 after tax, and the price is just too much for this property. Room was very clean! Unfortunately, there was a severe cigarette smell in the room to the point I woke up in the middle of the night trying to breath (and I don't have asthma). Paper thin walls. The couple next to us had a cell phone alarm that went off on vibrate at 5:04 am and continually buzzed for the next two hours. So much for sleeping in! The pool is clean and the staff is very friendly, but my wife and I will not be staying there again when Carolina/Kure beach have much nicer properties for the same or cheaper price than this one.

So sorry to hear about the noise and the smoke smell. I know that our cleaning staffs work extremely hard to eliminate the odor so we will work with our management team to see if there is a different solution. I do appreciate your comments on our staff and we will review our rates to determine if we are in line with the market. We are in the final phases of completing an upgrade to the majority of our rooms and we expect our new furniture package to arrive in a couple of weeks. We hope you will come back and give us another chance. Feel free to call me with any questions you may have at 910-509-1707. Barry Eagle

Have only been back home a few days and already miss my home away from home. The staff here treat you like you are family. The staff has taken the time and care to build relationships so when we arrive alot of times they are not the only familiar faces we see. Alot of people come again and again. The rooms are always clean, the maids are always more than helpful. I recommend this place to everyone and they always thank me once they stay there. Thank you Surfside staff for all you do.

My family stayed at the Surfside Lodge. It was clean and nice , recently painted and fixed up I guess. The appliances ( fridge) and microwave were a bit old but worked well. We greatly enjoyed the ocean view . It was a delightful experience overall. Staff was super nice, courteous. We will stay at this place again for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are better, render a secure feeling.
