This is our hotel of choice when visiting Nags Head. We have always been treated like royalty and everyone from the house keeping dept to the front desk are completely helpful to any situation that should arise. The hotel is extremely clean and there is never a shortage of cold lemon water and coffee at any hour of the day...

Just returned home from a three night stay in one of their 3rd floor oceanfront rooms. Ours was large, very clean and sound proof. Bed was comfy and the sheets and towels were high quality. Also, the view was AMAZING. Love the rocking chairs on the balcony. Breakfast was solid with a wide assortment of options for different diets. I...

The staff from top to bottom made our visit special. From the front desk, to maintenance, all were very friendly. We were there for my daughter's wedding. We borrowed hammers to pound tent canopies into the sand, bottle openers, scotch tape, you name it. It was a beach wedding and they roped off a sand area early in the morning...

Location was great and room had all the necessities. A/C kept going on and off, but I think it is because it was really hot outside. Bed was comfortable and staff was helpful. Had a fridge in the room, but temperature was set too high so my drink slightly froze. Beach access was easy and nice. Had a pool, but...

We were in Manteo for a sailing regatta with a team of teenagers. We decided to stay on the beach in Nags Head so the kids could unwind and enjoy the ocean each evening. Surf Side did not disappoint . . . . the staff could not have been more accommodating, polite and gracious . . . . the rooms...

The two best things about this hotel was that it was very clean, and all the people that worked there were outstanding - friendly and helpful. I was traveling with my husband and 18 year old daughter. We had a room with a king bed and a loft with a queen; it had a side ocean view. I really have...
