We enjoyed our two nights in the smaller, south building with an upper-floor room directly facing the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't mind the short flights of stairs (no elevator in this building). After our late afternoon check-in we took some cups of wine and snacks from the lobby...

The Surf Side Hotel is awesome! It's on the beach. The on-sight parking lot is huge. The staff are personable and most helpful. The breakfast offers a wide variety of choices for the pickiest palate. The rooms are clean, smell fresh and are well appointed. The hallways and room are very quiet. We stay in an ocean front room on...

We had a great view,room and pools were very clean, people were nice too. The only downside for is I am a smoker and would've liked to been able to smoke on the balcony. The location was good. Close to the sand dunes, wright brothers and light houses.

This was our 6th time visiting the hotel. I feel compelled to share ( I rarely do) because they deliver every time. The service is outstanding and we always get the room with the loft, which is amazing. Breakfast is great. The beds are so comfortable that I actually sleep better there than at home. How often does that happen?...

Great extras! Large complimentary breakfast, fresh and icy lemon water and coffee available throughout the day, and snacks/wine during happy hour. Indoor pool and jacuzzi, as well as an outdoor pool and a separate deck for hanging with friends or quietly sipping coffee in the morning. The staff is wonderful!

Our first trip to the Outer Banks. Chose the Surf Side based on excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Very happy to say they were on point. The hotel is very clean, had no problems with noise from other rooms, beds were comfortable. Bathroom was very clean and the towels were thick; felt like new. We had room 313, facing the...

We planned a four day beach vacation and used TripAdvisor to select the hotel. Again, we weren't disappointed in TripAdvisor reviews. The reviews are very accurate to the quality of this hotel. We booked a 3 queen loft hotel room. This was the perfect size for our family of four. The hardest part of a beach hotel is keeping the...
