Stayed at the Surfside Motel in Wisconsin Dells for 2 nights in September for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We like to stay at family owned Motels. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was tidy and fresh smelling. Very reasonably priced. Great location close to food and shopping. Small fridge and microwave was great for storing and reheating... More

We stated on Wasawa Days in room 31. They have 2 level of rooms. The front is a cheaper room but we stayed in the rooms on the side street. It is a 2 level, door outside building. When we were there it was very quiet. The rooms were very clean. Microwave, fridge, 2 double beds that were very comfy.... More

We stayed here for my birthday weekend. It's a little older. But very clean. Everything smelled like it was freshly washed. It was quiet at night. A/C worked great. The woman that was running it was a sweetheart! We will definitely come back. Great for people that are not into the chain hotels.

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Surfside. Upon arrival I was greeted in the office and allowed to check in to the room even though it was under my friends name and she hadn't arrived yet. Super clean room and the fridge kept our items very chilled. I cannot express enough how kind and accommodating the gal... More

We got ripped off on another hotel, and needed a hotel fast, and this hotel was there for us. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again in the future when we go to the Dells.

We decided to stay at this motel based on the good reviews. Big mistake. The first room we checked into had a very strong smell of smoke masked by a strong air freshener. The lady at the front desk moved us to a different room. Later that night when we came back to the motel to sleep we noticed a... More

We decided to stay over in the Dells on a whim, and I couldn't find anything online for less than $200/night, and even that place was not a water park, just a typical chain and not well reviewed at that. We decided to drive Hwy12 to see if any of the "Mom & Pop" places were advertising a vacancy. I'm... More

This is one of those old-school motels, but this one is cleaner than many of them. Clean, comfortable stay. Not located right in the heart of the Dells, but you're probably driving anyhow, so it's not a problem. Eat at the Cheeze Factory restaurant just up the block, which is a vegan restaurant that is fantastic, even if you aren't... More

We had a horrible experience at Econo Lodge by Pirate's Cove. Don't go there, don't give them your credit card ever! Checked out of that dump and tried this little drive your car up to the door type place. Rooms clean, well stocked towels and ready to go. Nice pool clean well maintained, strong scent of chlorine which is good.... More

I recently stayed at the Surfside Motel in Wisconsin Dells with my family (July 24-27, 2015). The motel has very reasonable rates, the owner is super friendly, but most of all the rooms are immaculate. You can see that this family operated motel takes a lot of pride in making sure the rooms and facility are clean for their guests.... More
