I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked the place but I decided to take a chance on it given the location. It was right on the beach with good places to eat within walking distance.What more could you ask for. The room itself was a bit dated but it was clean and the bed was super comfortable. Awesome...

Just got back from Surfside Lodge after a two night stay. I have to tell the truth. I'm a bit of a hotel snob and going through the reviews of this place kind of scared me. Up until the hour before I could cancel I really was debating it but I went through with the stay and I'm glad I...

Thank you so much for the kind review. We will be looking to replace all of our blinds with curtains in the fall. We upgraded the property in many areas but still need to improve the bathrooms and the window treatments. I appreciate your review and hope you come back next year to see the additional improvements.

We visit here all the time, but they now have new owners who do not allow pets. I think they could allow them in the off season. I think your site should include people being able to choose handicapped rooms or any other special amenity needed. We did not stay here because of the pet policy. I canceled my reservation.

I come to Surfside all the time. It is so beautiful. Oceanfront rooms are amazing. The staff is so nice and accommodating. The rooms are nice. They have 2 pools which is awesome. The beach is steps away from the rooms. So amazing.

Stayed at Surfside this weekend. Had stayed there years before and knew what it was like. Actually found the room better than in the past. Clean carpets nice bedding. Everything was in order. The cons were no bedside tables and only one chair. There were no receptacles beside the bed so I had to get an extension cord to hook...

I'm currently sitting in one of their rooms. Last night (@ 8:30 pm) while we were taking our bags to our rooms, another guest asked if we had hot water. He said the office told him someone was already working on it. Around 12am we turned the hot water on and no hot water. At 7:30am we got up and...

I wanted to apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with our hot water. We did have a boiler go out which had to be replaced. Our office hours are reduced during the winter months but we should have notated that to you during your check in process. I have spoken to our management team to ensure all guests upon arrival...

I have never visited Carolina Beach before, but was struggling to find a hotel to accommodate my request. I spoke to somebody on a 1-800 number that was provided for the Carolina Beach Surfside Lodge and they said my request was completely beyond the scope of their control.
