Awesome location! Can't beat an oceanfront room with a private balcony! Friendly accommodating staff. Clean property and rooms with everything we needed. This was a wonderful surprise to in a reasonably priced, non-chain coastal property. Everyone we encountered on Wrightsville Beach, Wilmington and surrounding areas were pleasant and helpful. Thank you for making our visit a wonderful mini-vacation!

The bad news is we only got to stay one night in this gem of a motel! The good news is it's a simple yet very pleasant beachfront motel on Wrightsville Beach. When you first arrive it looks like your basic ocean motel. Check in was quick and easy with the nicest young man, Josh (whom, BTW works 3 jobs...

We stayed at the Surf Suites Motel several years back and we were excited to stay here again because of the wonderful views from the ocean front rooms. We stayed on the 3rd floor, so the view was great as expected. The room though was not as good as we had remembered. The place could definitely use some updating (especially...

Every year we come here just for the weekend together. The place is clean and reasonable, with a kitchen and beachfront location you can't go wrong. Great location adjacent to the Oceanic, we enjoy the beach and always have a great dinner next door.We had been here for a few years before we noticed the outdoor pool. Convenient to all...

We stayed here two nights while visiting family in the Wilmington area. Staff was friendly and the suite was nice, quiet and clean. The king size bed, while pretty hard, was comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony, drinking coffee and watching the surfers. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a room that faced the ocean and it was very nice. We really had no problems with the property other than that they didn't have an ice machine and our fridge had very little ice. They were very friendly!

This is a great, older motel. The beach is great there. The hotel is a little older, but it is clean and well-maintained. My biggest complaint was my mattress was hard as a rock and I did not sleep well on it. If you can deal with a very firm mattress, Surf Suites is definitely worth considering. I'd stay here...

We just spent our anniversary weekend at Surf Suites. It is a great place to stay, and we really enjoyed being right on the beach. The staff is personable and willing to help in any way. One young man saw me struggling with a heavy load and came out of the office to open the motel room door for me....

This hotel is perfectly located on the south end of Wrightsville Beach, its nice and quiet and the view is spectacular. My family and I really like the private access to the beach the layout of the rooms and the cute bunnies that play in the back yard. If you are looking for a good place to bring the family,...

This was our first stay at Surf Suites and we were super pleased. The suite was large, clean, and on the beach. The pool was great for the kids. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Family friendly and quiet. We will definitely be back!
