Our stays here are always fantastic. The rooms are very well kept, the staff pays attention to a lot of detail. Very friendly and accommodating to any extra needs we had. As I said , we stay there every year. One cant really find a better place than the Surf Side

This was my first visit to Nags Head, NC and to Surf Side Hotel. I did not know what to expect. However, I was very pleased. The room was very nice. We stayed in the loft with the ocean view. I'm so glad that I choose this hotel to stay at. The staff was very nice and attentive. I will...

This was a last minute trip and we were NOT disappointed! The hotel was impeccably clean. The check in receptionist was very friendly and nice. A special gift was in room for Valentines weekend. Hotel was quiet. Two things to keep in mind but not a problem for me - no elevators and very limited receptacles and no USB in...

We spent two nights at the surf up, in July. Our room was fine but the bathroom was a bit small. They had a pool who was a bit crowded, but everybody was so nice and polite. The beautiful beach was just meters away, the water was clear and we had a grate stay. The staff was nice and polite...

The room was nice, bright and immaculate. When we checked in we asked if there was a restaurant near by that had fresh crabmeat. Leroy was at the desk and he offered to make a few phone calls while we got settled in. That's a first! When we came down he recommended a place and off we went. We did...

This was our second time at the Outer Banks, again in the off season. We usually stay at hotel chains, but we thought we'd try something different this time. The best thing was the mattress -- most comfortable mattress I've ever had, firm but still soft. Perfect! A couple of things I want to mention to those thinking of staying...

January 11-17th. this is my 4th stay at the Surf Side Hotel. We love it here! This is our first time off season. Always very, very clean. Staff is extremely accommodating. This time we had an ocean front room and we loved it. The beds are always comfortable. We won't stay anywhere else on the Outer Banks!
