We were traveling blind, just cruising up the coastline from Charleston, SC. We were so surprised by the Surf Side. The outside was weathered and we were concerned that it was going to be weathered inside as well. However, it was the exact opposite. Outstanding lobby, gracious hosts, a superior breakfast, a happy happy-hour and impressive upscale rooms. The rooms,...

We were only able to stay for one night this time. As always everything was top notch. From reception to the room to breakfast. We have been going here for over 20 years and in all that time have never had any issues whatsoever.Clean rooms, great view, and a fantastic staff. Doesn't get any better than that!!

I was very pleased with the Surf Side Hotel. It was very clean, didn't have that beach damp smell that some hotels have. Room was large and beds were very comfortable. And the air conditioner/heater unit did not make noise. That is always my #1 concern. The bathroom was a little small but otherwise no problem.

Had a family stay here for several days this summer. The upside is the great location right on the beach, with 2 pools and a hot tub. They did the little things well like the complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit, and the iced lemon water in the lobby area for refreshment on a hot July day. The staff were friendly....

We booked an oceanfront king room. Loved the balcony with rocking chairs. Great views, we watched the sunrise each morning. We stayed for 4 days and tried the breakfast 2 mornings. Make your own waffles, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy. This hotel was very clean, even the hallways smelled fresh. Wine social each night but we never...

We visited this hotel in the middle of October. The rates were acceptable for the OFF season. The rooms were spotless,and I am a clean freak. The Beds were comfortable, and the customer Sèrvice was fabulous. They have rooms With porches that look out over the Ocean. Quiet & Serene place in October. No screaming kids or wild College kids....
