My family and I stayed @ Surfside Lodge and we really really enjoyed our stay. AT check-in Sabrina was wonderful. Great first impression!!! We kept the sliding door open all night and listened to the waves with their BEAUTIFUL ocean front room. The price was great! What a convenient place with GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

No frills place. Yes location and pool are a plus, but the walls are paoer thin, had to take cold shower, no cups or plates, really cannot qualify as a kitchen. Looks like no money being reinvested, our second floor balcony has started to rot and sag. Becareful if you go!

Awesome little place - ocean front; bed, bath, door, and window to the beach front. Place was what you'd expect from an locally owned joint in the off season. Exactly what she and I needed. Only issue was with the door to the room. When we had vacated the room Saturday evening, someone helped themselves to our suitcases. I'd thought...

The rooms had some bad rating but not deserved. The room was clean. The sheets were clean, it's old but do you throw grandparents to the curb. It's right on the beach, and if are looking for an inexpensive hotel, then this is it. No sand in the room till my kids brought it in.

If you're looking for a modest hotel/motel, you can't go wrong. With low rates, clean rooms, 2 pools and an ocean view you can't ask for much more. You won't get room service or an on-site bar but you're in walking distance of many bars and restaurants and the Boardwalk. You have an option of a kitchen and 1 or...

This property is located directly on the beach, so guests are just a few steps away from the sand and surf. Additionally, most of what Carolina Beach has to offer the visitor is within walking distance. The personnel in the office and those responsible for housekeeping were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Otherwise, there are some real positives and real negatives...
