Surf Suites Motel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Just returned from a stay at the Surf Suites and found the property to be excellent, the staff was also friendly, informative and responsive to our needs. The rooms have a kitchen and paper towels, coffee filters, dish soap, and dishwasher detergent was provided which was a plus. Kitchen was adequately furnished and we ate in one night and cooked our own food. The area the Motel is in is quiet and not too crowded. Though we went mid-week and before many school districts had released for the summer break.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best view and locations away from the elevator are quieter.

Surf Suites is a sweet little gem on the less commercial south end of Wrightsville Beach. These are all one-bedroom kitchenette condos that have patios or balconies overlooking the beach. A short path takes you onto the beach with a lifeguard stand nearby. There's also a pool and laundry facilities. The only negative is that it's adjacent to the Oceanic, where the outdoor music some evenings is intrusive at best and sometimes absolutely hideous! The farmers market is Mondays and you can get excellent seafood there or there's a great seafood market behind the Reddix on the main drag. Cook your own and eat it on the balcony while watching the surfers. National Geographic ranks this place No. 19 in the top surf towns in the world, and there's board rental right across the street.

This is a great little spot that sits right on the beach. We've stayed several times. Rather than a hotel room with 2 beds you get a separate adult bedroom with king bed (nice for privacy) and a large open common room with kitchen. The kids (or guest) can sleep on the pull-out sofa in the main room. There is a pool, as well.

We've stayed at many of the other hotels along the strip, including the Holiday Inn Sunspree and Blockade Runner. The benefit of this place is that it is small, tidy, you'll have a full size kitchen, and everything on the property is easily accessible.

It's not nearly as crowded as the larger chain hotels down the street. However, because it is not a chain you do not get all the amenities. No bar at the pool, no large scale interior common area, no restaurant onsite (although the Oceanic restaurant is directly beside the hotel).

But if you want a quiet, smaller place without all the bells and whistles, it's a great deal. For families, especially, the full size kitchen is great. And it is so close to the beach. Request a room on the first floor and you just walk right out, down a short path and there's the ocean.

This motel was a good old-fashioned place to stay. By that I mean if you want somewhere to stay and do not need all the "bells and whistles" this is the place for you. It is remarkably clean! Probably one of the cleanist places I have stayed. Pick this hotel if you want a fantastic view of the ocean. It can't be beat! Checking in and out was a breeze and the gentleman at the front desk was friendly. A tip (and the only con for us)....when you book (or check in) ask for a room away from the elevator. The elevator is on the scary side with all the noises it makes. We had a room between us and the elevator and could hear every time the elevator came up to our floor during the night. Even with that said, I would definately stay here again!

We stayed here for a weekend getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the hotel, very clean and proximity to the beach was wonderful. Very beautiful view from the room. It was very warm the weekend we were here and we really enjoyed opening the balcony doors and letting the breeze blow through. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

We took off for a week end get away and ended up at Wrightsville Beach. We stopped at The Surf Suites and decided to spend the night. The room was very clean and the view was wonderful! The staff was very kind and helpful with any questions we had about the area. We ended up staying two more nights. I was very pleased to find the Surf Suites and I can't wait to return there. If you go, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean!!

We have stayed here twice and had a wonderful expereince both times. The suites are a nice size with a seperate bedroom and a small balcony. Right on the beach, you can listen to the waves all day long. These is a small but adequate stock of dishes and pots and pans. We went out and bought fresh seafood and came back and prepared it each day. Our view was as good as the high priced restaurant next door. The staff was excellent, we had to delay our stay one time due to weather and thye had no problem moving it for us. We needed extra linens another day and they brought them right away. Love this place.
