Enjoyed our 3 days at Surf Side Hotel. Liked that it was clean and the view was wonderful. Also, being beach side made our morning walk that much more enjoyable. The breakfast room was a delightful surprise. There was fresh fruit, juices, delicious pastry and all kinds of rolls with sausage and hard boiled eggs. Selections allowed for a healthy breakfast. We will return for sure.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor, if you can, to ensure the best views.

Before arriving at Surf side, we stayed two nights at another hotel. I was very disappointed that we didn't stay at Surf side the whole time. We were on the second floor in an oceanfront room that was clean, nicely decorated and roomy with two balconies that had amazing views and we were so close to the ocean that we could hear the waves crashing on the beach from our room. The hotel amenities were well maintained and the woman that ran the breakfast room was very meticulous and made sure guests were well taken care of. We are looking forward to staying here again very soon and "shutter" at the thought of staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Stay in a room on the second floor or above and you won't be disappointed with the views.

This is our second time here in 6 months and this hotel has exceeded our expectations both times. Rooms are roomy, clean and upscale. Comfy beds and nice furniture. Our room was on the south side which still had very nice views of the ocean and the full moon shining over the water. So nice to have a private balcony. Complimentary breakfast in the morning beats any national chains and is clean and well tended. Conveniently located to all the local stores, restaurants and attractions. Pool area was very nice with recently updated chaise loungers with cushions - so easy to doze off in. This is our go-to hotel on the OBX!

Room Tip: If you can get an ocean front room on the south corner, you have a balcony on both sides of the room...

We just spent a week in an oceanfront loft room...what a fabulous room and view! LOVED the loft bedroom and the rockers on the balcony. The room was incredibly spacious and very well kept. The housekeeping staff was very attentive, polite, respectful and hard working. The entire property is clean all of the time, including the staircases! It was great to have the bathrooms on the main floor near the lobby to use when on the beach or at the pool. The lemon water was a fabulous perk especially on those hot beach days. The full breakfast was wonderful and always well tended to by the staff. The only disappointment was that the wine time was in the lobby. There is a beautiful raised deck behind the pool that would have made a nice space for some wine time while socializing with other guests instead of in the crammed lobby area.

Room Tip: Can't beat the oceanfront rooms from the 2nd floor to the 4th...difficult to see the ocean from...

We arrived and checked in just fine. We went to dinner and had just returned to go on a walk on the beach when we were informed that we were given the wrong room. At first we were asked if we wanted to move and we declined because we had unpacked and were settled. The room we received was a lesser room than we reserved, but it worked and we were unpacked. Then we were informed that we had to move. We lost the opportunity to go for a walk on the beach for a walk and had to move. Ridiculous. Next we get moved in and the fan does not work. Ok another inconvenience. It gets fixed. Next the toilet overflows. I did feel a damp spot on the floor when we were moving in and now we know why. What a disgusting nightmare. The only redeeming factor was that the staff was polite. However the inconvenience of having to move, losing the opportunity to go for a walk , and the toilet overflowing is not what we expected. A very disappointing start. To a vacation.
