My husband & I just returned home after a 3 night stay at the Surf Side in Nag's Head and I must say, HATS OFF! We found the hotel...pleasant. Checking in was a breeze. We had an oceanfront room on the 3rd floor and LOVED listening to the crashing waves our entire stay. The hotel is nothing fancy in the grand scheme of things BUT it was quiet, charming and did the job as far as allowing us to have a great nights sleep. The pool area was clean.
The beach access was easy and I will gladly suggest Surf Side to others.
Housekeeping was great. Hallways were quiet at all hours!!! Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
THANK YOU!

It is a good way to start the week for me to read a great review from a guest that enjoys the Surf Side enough to write a review and share their thoughts. I am happy to hear we delivered the experience that all of the staff works hard to present to every guest. Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us, it is appreciated.

We stayed in the main building on the 2nd floor with an ocean front room. It was a great view and the rocking chairs were awesome! The bathroom is a little small which would be the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Otherwise, a great, friendly place, for a reasonable price.

We stayed at the Surf Side on Aug. 19th and 20th for our anniversary. Wonderful staying. Great value. The hotel is older but extremely well kept and the staff friendly. The location is perfect. The rocking chairs on the deck were great. We stayed on the 4th floor ocean front. Couldn't have asked for more. We will return next year:)

This was our first time to the Outer Banks and we loved the area and we loved staying at the Surf Side Hotel! It was extremely clean, staff was very friendly, answered all of our questions, took care of some bugs on our porch overlooking the beach and all this at a great price for staying right on the beach! Fabulous views of the beach, ocean, sunrises, sunsets and very close to many wonderful restaurant with fresh fish from the area. Also just minutes away from the National Park and Pea Island, the lighthouse, the Wright Bros. museum and much more!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have views up & down the beach

We stayed for the labor day week-end. Our room was ready by 2:00 and so they let us check in early. We had two queen beds and a balcony. The room was sufficient for what we need and it was clean. We had ocean views which was a bonus, considering the nightly rate we paid for the room. Breakfast was standard, nothing to write about, but its there if you want to save some bucks. Two things we didn't care for - internet connection was really slow. But if you're on vacation, you really shouldn't be checking emails anyway. We had a hard time checking out places to eat because we could not get a fast connection. There was cable TV but the TV itself is probably old - bad image. It would also be nice if there is PPV. But overall, not a bad place. You get what you pay for. People of front desk are helpful too, which made a difference.
