Just spent two nights at the Surf side. Room was very nice, breakfast in the morning was a plus and a happy hour in the late afternoon was a nice touch after being on the road all day. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Would highly recommend a stay at the surf side....

Perfectly located for exploring all of the Outer Banks, the Surf Side was wonderful. Our oceanfront room was spacious and comfortable, and the rocking chairs on the balcony were perfect for enjoying sunrises and sunsets. The staff is great, and the hotel is literally steps away from the gorgeous beach and a pleasant beach walk from Jennette's Pier. Our visit...

We spent the weekend of our 30th wedding anniversary at this hotel last weekend. The rooms were very nice and the views were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and their recommendations for restaurants were excellent. They have a complimentary breakfast, but we chose to sleep in instead. The room had a small refrigerator which was great for...

We loved our stay in early April at this super-friendly, well-kept hotel. Will certainly plan another trip to this gem on the outer banks. The hard-working continental breakfast "lady" worked very hard to provide a clean, appealing array of breakfast items and made sure that our breakfast was perfect. Our oceanfront room was tastefully decorated and very clean.

We stayed here for three nights the first week of May. The hotel was clean, quiet, and in a great location. I would definitely recommend it for its proximity to the beach, we had an ocean view in our room and could go right out onto the beach. It also had a great pool area, and complimentary breakfast. I would...

A quiet, quaint, no-frill family-owned hotel was a refreshing change from the large chain hotels.. Views: From the Oceanfront King room on the 4th floor of the main building, the views were fantastic. Two balconies (one in entry and other in bedroom) face north, overlook the parking lot directly below, but still have a great view of the beach. The...

This was our first stay at the Surf Side Hotel but it won't be our last. Everyone was so friendly. Our room was spacious and clean with an ocean view. There was a wedding party staying there also and unfortunately one of the rooms was across from ours. We didn't say anything to management but they must have noticed it...

We were in Outer Banks for a wedding land found our stay at the Surf Side to be wonderful! The rooms were updated, lovely, every convenience provided, breakfast was great, and views inviting! There was a small glitch in our reservation which the front desk diligently rectified. We would definitely stay her again sand recommend without reservation!!!

Only 2 negative things. One is it rained all weekend and indoor pool was ice cold. We thought it would of been heated. Second thing is vending machines had no water. What about diabetics . other than these two things the room was awsome. Great customer service.

My husband and I recently went to Nags Head for a quick little anniversary get away. Wasn't looking for anything too fancy, just a nice stay at the beach. We enjoyed the wonderful views from our balcony especially the sunrise. The balcony views are somewhat obstructed when you are inside the room (curtains don't slide all the way back ),...
