Nice people and free stuff

I was surprised to find they offer a free hot breakfast now. That is a plus, with the free coffee and fruit drinks in the lobby whenever you want. The people are very nice and helpful.

Great Location but Meh to everything else

The room floor looked really grungy, the elevators very slow, breakfast was OK but the location, can't be beat. If I had planned earlier, I probably would not stay at this place.

weekend stay.

This hotel was very clean and the rooms were very nice. Staff was friendly. Had a very nice continental breakfast bar. The only downside is that the pool is inside and on the fifth floor enclosed in a room with very little sunlight.

Just want I wanted.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and was able to see the sunrise and watch the dolphins swim in the morning. We could sit on our balcony and wacth what was going on at the beach without actually sitting in the sand. It was great for us as we are older and don't need to play in the sand. Our room was clean, breakfast was a plus and there was a restaurant right in the hotel. I would do it again.

Great location!

Arrived for a 2 night stay on the beach and loved the view. Location was right next to the pier which was perfect for fishing and beaching. The room itself was decent, everything was clean and organized. The staff was helpful and answered inquiries about local spots. Only bad thing was that we had to park our second car across the street. But overall, a pleasant stay! Loved it!

No. No no

The only thing great about this hotel is the view and that's basically all you're paying for. When we first got there the air conditioner was out for hours and the maintenance man bought us up a little plastic fan -_- thanks. Also we were told the room accommodatess 8 (there was 6 of us) but when we got there it was only 2 beds in a tiny room with literally NO walking space. My young child and I had to share a twin sized hard cot for 5 days because they didnt want to give us another room even though we were willing to pay more money. The bed sheets had stains on them, our lamps didnt work, windows were dirty, chipped walls and paint and windows had mold on them. The lobby was hot, smelly and outdated and had 2 elevators but one was constantly being taken up by housekeeping and the other one was very slow so there would be about 15 people in a hot and small lobby waiting to use 1 elevator. Also when we first got to our room our "complimentary" soaps were already open and apparently used. We paid almost 2000 dollars to stay at a crammy hotel with a great ocean view. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Take your money elsewhere

Outdated A/C and back up power systems

The A/C system is out dated and barely cooled the room on the 'high' setting. Power went out and so did the a/c! The back up power system is outdated and thus no a/c for over 8 hrs! Had to check out early and ruined my vacation.

Free breakfast could of had solme protine. It was always so packed that u couldn't move or get food when u did there were times u didn't have a place to sit. Over all was ok place to stay. Right on.

I would find somewhere else.

Nothing to great about the Surfside. In the ad they listed a hot tub. Come to find out that the hot tub in the pool hasn't worked in years and now it's just a small kiddy pool. Very upset with this one of the reasons that i booked here. And for the breakfast was very poor too. No variety and not enough condiments. As for the room it did have a good view. But i think i could have found a better place for the money.
