“First Time Going”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Our stay at the Surf Side Hotel was excellent! The room was clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and polite. It was our first time visiting the outer banks for vacation, and because of our experience we look forward in returning. My wife said that when we come back we will stay at the Surf Side Hotel. Thank you Surf Side Hotel for your hospitality and we will return back to the outer banks because of our experience at Surf Side.

We will definitely come back. There were good restaurants near by and activities for our young adult sons. It was a relaxing vacation and we enjoyed every minute! Almost everyone we met during our stay were repeat visitors, which says a lot about this hotel.

My husband and I had one fun night at the Surf Side. The room was spacious and clean. We had a partial ocean view room in the new building. The beach area was fabulous. The sand was clean and stretched on for miles. Midweek in May, we had the beach to ourselves.
Breakfast was fine. The wine and cheese thing was underwhelming - goldfish and decanters of white and red wine.
The pool and hot tub was nice as well.

Room Tip: New building. Ocean view, if you can afford it.

Staying at the Surf Side hotel was great. Rooms were ok but not super nice. We had a 4th floor loft room. I love the loft rooms! I can sleep in an area that I have a more private feel. Pool and Hot Tub are great. When we used up the coffee packet and we called the front desk to get a housekeeping to get us another one, they got it to us in about 5 minutes! Direct beach access is great too, the balcony is ok but a little small. Hotel breakfast what ok but not like the buffets at the LaQuinta hotels we stay in a bunch, this had a bit more snack like stuff but it was not bad. Guest Laundry had only 1 washer and 1 dryer but that did not matter as not many people were going to use them a lot anyways. Wi-Fi worked well and the little refresh mints they set in the rooms when you first get there is very nice! Good drawer space too. Would definitely stay here again.

We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and they were correct..great place. We would recommend paying the extra money to get an ocean front room. When we got up in the morning we could see dolphins out front. Free wine and cheese from 4-6, great hot breakfast, clean rooms, friendly staff, plenty of parking. Highly recommend!

I would rename this the Friendly Hotel as absolutely every member of the staff from front desk to housekeeping had a friendly, happy, helpful attitude. Our room was delightful - clean, comfortable, contained everything we needed, and had a perfect view of ocean and beach. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best I've seen and the attendant the most delightful. There was one problem only - our stay was just too short.

Room Tip: Recommend view from 2nd floor

Spent 3 days in Nags Head. We had heard good things about Surfside Hotel from other family members who've stayed here, Its a great location, right on the beach. The continental breakfast was very good, there was so much fresh fruit available. The staff treated was very helpful & friendly, letting us know some good places to eat. Will come back & stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has good view
