Our third stay at the Surf Side and still an outstanding value. Housekeeping standard is impeccable inside and out- especially difficult in a beachside property. The staff is very outgoing and accomodating. The beachfront is not heavily developed so the beach is not crowded at all. Little touches like the complimentary lemon water and 4PM wine tasting are a plus....

Three girlfriends and I booked our annual "Girls' Getaway" at this little gem of a hotel on the beach in Nags Head.

What a pleasant surprise. My husband and I prefer the owner operated hotels not only because they are usually clean but also we try to support the smaller hotels.

Wonderful place. So accommodating. The staff bent over backwards to make our stay great! The breakfast every morning was yummy and so much to choose from. The rooms were clean and loved that the balcony has a screen so you can leave the door open for fresh air♡

After spending a week, we found that the newly renovated main building to be excellent, although the South building (under renovation) is showing its age. The ocean view room from 4th floor is truly spectacular. Some floors view pool,parking lot or sand dunes. Little extras were great: iced lemon/orange water, squeegee thingys to clean car windows, complimentary wine and snacks...

The Surf Side is a great choice for those looking to have an economical ocean front stay! We stayed in an ocean front jacuzzi room in the south tower. The views from the second floor room were excellent. The rooms were very clean and spacious.
