One thing we always look for at hotels is a good continental breakfast and this one was best by far! There was a variety of options including waffles, pastries, oatmeal, mini quiche,...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The room was extremely clean, the staff was delightful, and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast each morning. As a very light sleeper, I was thrilled how quiet and peaceful it was. I will definitely recommend Surf Side to anyone who is visiting the Nags Head area. The central...

My sister and I checked in to the hotel for a two night stay. We are in town visiting our brother. We pulled into town after 9 PM on Friday night and received a warm welcome from the front desk. Neither of our keys worked when we first went up to our room, but after a quick return trip to...

Very nice hotel, nice beachfront location in Nags Head. We stayed in a corner suite, with king size bed. The accommodations were light, views were wonderful. The main building has an elevator. Visited in March, a little off season, but plenty to do. Staff friendly and helpful. Hot coffee, tea, and water always available outside lobby area. Filling buffet breakfast....

Our family really enjoyed our stay here. They are currently remodeling parts of the hotel, but that didn't bother us. Apparently from the last hurricane, several other places were also remodeling. The staff was super nice, the room was clean and the indoor pool was clean. The beach was also great and Loved my early morning walk to Jeanettes Pier....

The Surf Side was pleasantly surprising! When we first arrived, there were renovations being done due to it being off-season. However, when we entered our room, we were very pleasantly surprised. The efficiency apartment/suite was clean and very well appointed. We enjoyed the large soaking tub. The kitchen was well stocked with the basic cooking needs (much better than our...
