We got a nice, big room with balconies on 2 corners. The view was so great we got take-out and brought it to our room. Everything is attractively decorated and we had enough electrical outlets, hot water, etc. the complimentary breakfast has more fresh fruits and other items that you don't find at a number of other hotels. Our room...

Room was perfect! Champagne was provided along with glasses and a card from the staff. Wonderful people and wonderful view of the ocean. We will be back many more times! The beach was wonderfully groomed as if it was ment for us to take a long romantic walk, which we did. Thank you for a truly perfect we end stay!

Stayed at Surf Side Hotel for a quick getaway when the weather was good. The room had great views of ocean, beach road, business road, and Manteo from the north side; great view of sunset from upper floors were enjoyed. It was very nice to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves rolling to the beach. Personal touches...

Wonderful hotel. Rooms are very clean and large. Breakfast is delicious and plenty. Sparkling pool. Short walk to beach. Best view of the ocean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Nothing bad to say about this "best hotel ever".

We were greeted by their friendly staff and they (cleaners, kitchen, maintenance, etc.) were continuously pleasant throughout our stay. We stayed in the newer building, room 306 with great views! Our room overlooked the pool and you could see the ocean and sound. The rooms were comfortable - plenty of room, choice of pillow firmness, nicely decorated, clean, etc. The...

We splurged a bit and booked the honeymoon suite for our 15 year anniversary for 5 nights. We could not have been happier with our room and the service and staff. First off - the room! We had two balconies, one directly facing the ocean front and the other with a side view and a view of the pier. It...

We just returned from a long weekend at the Outer Banks. Surf Side was very nice, very clean. Folks at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was great - a lot to choose from and the lady running the breakfast did a wonderful job. The wine social in the evenings was a great plus also....

Nice place. Not a lot of upgrades but we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the south tower and the view was still great. The sliding glass door to the balcony didn't lock. We had a jacuzzi tub in our room. I had to clean some hair out of the filter, but we still enjoyed the tub.

This was our second stay here, first time was hands down 5 stars plus! This time, sadly some things were lacking a bit. I booked this stay over valentines weekend as I had a 3 day weekend off and my husband and I had, had a such a hectic year we never even got to celebrate our 10 year anniversary...
