2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was very clean with beautiful views. The breakfast could have tasted better with non-watered down juice, bigger juice cups, and better tasting food. There was hot food for breakfast it was just didn’t taste that great.

Great staff great room everything was clean. Excellent location on the beach. Breakfast was tasty .

Great beach location. Fan blew cold air into the room, didn't draw out steam during shower. Liked the shampoo, conditioner, bath gel mointed on shower wall. More environmentallly friendly. Need better quality bath gel. Breakfast nothing special, high carb

Great hotel! Right on the ocean with a great view, delicious breakfast, friendly staff and afternoon wine social with snacks was a great touch. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back.

Oceanfront room with balcony was awesome. Open the door and listen to the ocean roll in. Sit in the rocking chair and watch people walk on the beach. Small microwave and refrigerator adequate. Lots of grocery stores a short drive away. Elevator made everything much easier. For the most part, the room was clean. The vent in the bathroom was eye level so I noticed a huge amount of lint in it. Probably most of our home duct work probably has lint like that but since the duct was eye level you could not miss it. The bed was very comfortable. Free breakfast daily was a nice extra. Like so many other free breakfasts offered at motels, it is almost identical everyday. Keish, boiled eggs, bread, muffins, grits, hash browns, sausage gravy, fresh fruit, fruit juice, coffee, milk. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday they changed the keish to scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese which was a pleasant surprise. If they could change the main entree every other day, it would be wonderful, even if it is just 2 different ones. After all variety is the spice of life. The only breakfast food I would suggest adding is french toast. Still a great deal to have a free breakfast! I have stayed here several times before. I highly recommend it!

nice ocean front room. luggage cart are lacking. Need ramp for easier access to elevator. Staff provided champagne glasses for us. A big plus. But plastic wear in room.For price of room, disappointing. Overall-pleasing.

Amazing hotel and location is unbeatable. Staff are all sooo friendly. Nice to walk everywhere and close to Jeannette’s pier. VERY clean, fabulous breakfast included. Can’t say enough good things about it.

Very nice staff, quiet rooms, we had a very nice view of the ocean! This may sound crazy, but the ac in our room was perfect; not too hot/cold and when it did kick on it didn’t sound like a jet taking off (like some hotels).

Very well-maintained older hotel, right on the beach. Rooms and furniture new as of this past winter. Happy hour in lobby every afternoon, 4-6 p.m. Free wine and sangria, with a variety of snacks. Well-stocked breakfast includes biscuits with gravy, along with usual waffles and pancakes, cereal, etc. Good, hot coffee. Will definitely stay here again.

My husband & I were doing a bike tour of the Outer Banks and ended up staying here for 2 nights. It was a great escape after spending several days biking in the cold & rain, and was so comfortable that we decided to stay for a 2nd night!

Very friendly and attentive staff. Easy check in. Good breakfast. Comfortable room.

Beautiful, you can open the windows, fresh sea brezze, frige with freezer compartment. Good breakfast.

TO START OFF, THEY LET US CHECK IN EARLY, 11AM COMPARED TO 3:00PM. THE ROOM WE ORIGINALLY RENTED WAS AN OCEAN VIEW INSTEAD OF AN OCEAN FRONT. MEANING WE HAD A PARTIAL/SIDE VIEW OF THE BEACH. WHEN CHECKING IN, I SIMPLY MENTIONED WITHOUT EVEN COMPLAINING, "AN OCEAN FRONT WOULD OF BEEN GREAT!". WALKING TO OUR RENTED ROOM, ONE OF THE STAFF MEMBERS OFFERED US A FREE ROOM UPGRADE TO A KING OCEAN FRONT! KING BED, A SEPARATE LIVING ROOM, 2 TVS, 3 BALCONIES (ALL OCEAN VIEW), AND HUGE ALL TOGETHER! HOTEL ROOM WAS EXTREMELY CLEAN, GREAT VIEWS ALL AROUND, DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH, INDOOR(HEATED)/OUT DOOR POOL AND JACUZZI, AND GREAT AMENITIES. KIND, FRIENDLY, AND FAMILY ORIENTED STAFF. GIGANTIC BREAKFAST SERVED EVERY MORNING, ALONG WITH A WINE AND SNACK SOCIAL SERVED EVERY AFTERNOON! MAKE THIS YOUR EVERY TIME STAY AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! DISCLOSURE: JUST BECAUSE WE GOT A FREE ROOM UPGRADE, DOESN'T MEAN EVERY ONE WILL! LOLOLOL ;)

What an excellent value! Room was clean, spacious with a view of ocean. Large fresh cooked breakfast included. Eggs, cereals, waffles, you name it! They pay attention to details for your comfort and enjoyment.

This was a very clean hotel. Room size was good, furnished nicely. Breakfast was excellent with lots of hot and cold choices. Good location and staff was very friendly and let us check in early so we could drop off our bags before heading down to Ocracoke. Would recommend and would definitely stay there again if I get to go back. I usually end up disappointed with hotels but definitely not this one.

Great price for the location. The rooms are clean and nothing extravagant, but for the price and what you get you can't really ask for more. I am very picky about hotels, but we have stayed here for two years and it was been cost effective and it doesnt feel like a low quality hotel. I recommend this to anyone that needs a clean place to stay with nice staff and complimentary hot breakfast!

We truly enjoyed our short stay at the Surf Side Hotel! Very clean and comfortable room. The staff were very friendly. The location was perfect with lots of things to see and do within a very short distance of the hotel. The happy hour every day was very fun! Breakfast was quite good! Truly a wonderful stay! We will certainly go there again and recommend to family and friends.

The hotel is a great place to stay. The front desk staff greeted us quickly, explained everything and had us on our way in less than 10 minutes. We booked an oceanside room - not oceanfront, but we still had a good view of the ocean as we looked north. The balcony was easily accessible and the cleaning staff even kept it clean, even though Hermine decided to include wind and sand in our vacation. The room was a double queen - nothing too fancy or special - the tv was on the smaller side, but then again - if you're going to visit OBX, why do you need a big TV? The room also included a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker - we only used the fridge to store some leftovers and water bottles we had brought. From a service perspective - we had an issue with the AC in our room (it was making a loud growling noise when it turned on). I visited the front desk and advised of the issue - the next morning, maintenance was in our room replacing the AC (all while having to deal with cleanup from Hermine). It was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the hotel to anyone who asks.

We loved our hotel. Free breakfast so we didn't have to drive around for it. Free Wifi was nice too. It was a very good location.
