“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

While dated, this hotel is very clean and the staff very helpful. Towels available for the pool. We stayed for one night. Beachfront room. Beautiful view. Nice soap and shampoo provided. Quiet hotel. Great location. Did not stay for breakfast.

We had a wonderful time at Surfside Hotel. This was our first trip there. When we first arrived we had so many things to take up two flights of stairs and got help from the staff who refused our tip.The support staff (cleaning etc.) did a wonderful job and I hope you all do not forget to tip them. The pools were clean and sometimes I even had the pool to myself!! The beach area here is excellent. The surrounding area had plenty of places to eat and visit We had a kitchenette room and next time I would bring more groceries as it is expensive to eat out in a place that is known for tourists (but this had nothing to do with the Hotel itself). We would stay in the taller of the two building with an elevator next time too. Even tho' our oceanfront room with a balcony was wonderful. So many trips from the second floor to the beach with towels , chairs etc was a bit of a chore (41) steps each way. We loved it and will book again with them.

Room Tip: They have a very nice continental breakfast. We never used room service

Great hotel, staff and location. Its been the hotel of my choice each time ive visited obx. Rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is always friendly, and of course the rooms have great views of the ocean. Nice outdoor pool, and easy beach access. Within walking distance of some resturants and shops.

This was our first time staying at Surf Side. It was absolutely wonderful. From check in to check out, the entire staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The breakfast staff took great care to keep everything stocked. The support staff kept us well supplied with fresh towels. We have already made reservations for the loft room again next year.

Room Tip: We started out in a room with 2 queen beds. Then moved to am ocean front loft. Awesome view! :)

Superb location, right on the beach. In walking distance of good restaurants. Large, clean room. Try to get a room on second or higher floor to get the best view. Also try for oceanfront, rather than Oceanside. Outdoor and Indoor pols are purely functional, but fine.

This is our 2nd trip to Surf Side Hotel and it is a great place to stay. We wouldn't have returned if it hadn't been . It's an older hotel, but well kept, clean with all the amenities that you would want and it's oceanfront. The staff is very accommodating. I also like he fact that it's not a chain hotel.
I look forward to our trip next year.

Room Tip: I like oceanfront, but Oceanside is good also.

I am always leery of booking reservations at an unknown hotel, but the Surf Side far surpassed all of our expectations. The Ocean Front room was beautiful and was kept that way by a wonderful crew of hard workers. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. What a joy to have an abundance of parking spaces and not have to worry that you won't have a place to park when you come back for the night! We actually did take advantage of the Continental Breakfast on the day we took the Dolphin sight seeing boat trip and again I was impressed by the selection. We are sold on Nags Head and on the Surf Side Hotel. We are looking forward to returning next September!

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms with the private balcony are well worth the extra money.
