Have to say we were very happy with our first stay at Silver Surf! Wondeful friendly helpful staff at the hotel! (Employee that handled the chair and umbrellas on the beach was not friendly and was unpleasant) Very clean rooms! Very nice being provided beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. Pool was very nice and laundry facilities were very clean. Only...

This property was in a great location on Anna Maria island. The accommodations were very clean and appreciated the daily maid service. Enjoyed being able to go down in the morning for the continental breakfast and coffee. Great way to start my day before a beautiful morning walk on the beach. The hotel also offers a private section of beach...

Some of the tips on restaurants, taking the monkey bus or the free trolley given to us by staff made this wonderful location even more attractive for a beach getaway with all the trimmings! We did meet some very nice people while staying and passed along the great suggestions given to us by staff.

The resort and surrounding are excellent! Didn't have to drive anywhere. The free trolley is an absolute bonus to get around and see the whole island. Great eats in walking distance too. Beach was perfect.

The staff were very nice and the place is well suited for families, with great beach access (privately owned by the hotel). They loaned us kids play toys for the sand and the beach and had plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas. There is even a trolley stop at the hotel for access to other places along the strand! That...

The Silver Surf has a fabulous location. The accommodations are somewhat dated, having a '60s motel look and feel, but the amenities more than make up for that - great beach, beach chairs and umbrellas included, adequate continential breakfast, nice pool, walking distance to great bars and restaurants, and very friendly and helpful staff.
