We always stay at Surf Side when we go to the Outer Banks. The rooms are large and comfortable. The place is very clean. Every time we go there, they have updated something. Since the last time we were there, in October, they have added a new deck to watch the sunsets. The people go out of their way to help you. Once on our anniversary, we stayed there. They surprised us with a complimentary bottle of champagne. They go the extra mile to make sure their guests feel welcomed. We were there this weekend and I went down to the front desk to see if they knew of a tv guide since we could not find one on tv. The cable company had apparently changed their format. The gentleman behind the desk found one on the internet, called our room to ask if it was a good time to bring it to me and brought it up himself. The staff is usually the same. To us, it shows they are being treated well and take pride in their work. We won't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Call to make reservations. That way you will make sure you get what you wanted. They also have loft...

We stayed at the Surf Side over Memorial Day weekend 2014. They have many little extras which make your stay comfortable - the lemon water available (to stay hydrated in the sun) all day/night, wine socials in the evening, wonderful fresh fruit, coffee, eggs, sausage gravy/biscuits for breakfast every day. The beds are comfortable and clean. Some rooms better than others (as in any hotel). We recommend staying in southern facing rooms to avoid the "parking lot" view on the north side. They have a washer and dryer available for washing your towels, bathing suits, etc. ($1/wash, $1/dry). Very convenient to the bridge to Manteo, Jennette's Pier, Tanger Outlet Mall, Pamlico Jack's, Jockey's Ridge, etc. Very friendly and accommodating staff. We will be back.

Room Tip: South facing rooms in the Main Bldg. (with elevator) have better views. Stay away from elevator roo...

This is the first time I have reviewed the Surf Side Hotel, but it is not my first stay here. We keep returning to the Surf Side because they never fail to meet my expectations! I have stayed many places before....from name brand chains to privately owned properties and this hotel is at the top of my list. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The hotel is SUPER clean. We stayed in a loft room which was great for my husband and myself and our two teenagers. Very convenient to resatuarants and shopping. I can't say enough good things about the Surf Side. Can't wait to return soon!

The hotel was very nice and clean. Staff was nice and generous. Continental breakfast every morning was fresh. Had a water hose to clean the salt periodically off the car, ice for your cooler, etc. with not a lot of hotel options and us not having a big family to rent a house this was a great place. Close to everything and right on the beach.
