Never have my husband and I seen a more spotless hotel room than the one we stayed in at The Surfside. The nautical decor was very charming and tasteful as was the blue and white color scheme -- so clean and fresh. We had a comfy night's sleep in our king-sized bed with wonderful AC. Each morning we enjoyed a...

We stayed at the surfside just recently for a long weekend family trip. It was our first time in the area. Well all we can say is that the reviews do not lie!!

First of all, from the first contact, the staff was very courteous and helpful.

The Surfside is excellent for our needs. Small and personable business, with freshly decorated rooms, micro, and mini-fridge that are well kept by Loretta. BBQ grills on site too. Just off 1A, near Mini-Super Mart, pizza, and Breachway Grill. Within a few minutes to the beaches. We've enjoyed it for many years. Almost hesitate to tell others, so we can...

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location for walking and an easy trip to nearby beaches. Loretta was attentive and constantly asked if there was anything we needed. Best of all, many of our neighbors in the motel were long-time, repeat customers and all extremely friendly.
