Brandon, Florida
Reviewed 17 December 2016

Even with a discount, I thought our room was pretty expensive for a typical beach motel. It was fine for one night for my husband and I. However, if I were planning a family beach trip, I don't think I would consider the Silver Surf.

We visited for a soccer tournament. The hotel was a good fit for us based on location and to beach as well as distance from fields at IMG. The rooms were fine for what we needed. The staff at the hotel are very nice.

Great hotel on Anna Maria Island! Has its own private beach and an easy drive to the soccer fields. Some good restaurants/bars within walking distance. Service was excellent. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

In town for a wedding. Great location/rooms/management. Across the street from the beach. Management was very accommodating. I forgot my charger in my room and they called and asked if they wanted to mail it back (I'd pay for postage) - Great service! I did offer two minute/small suggestions - full size ironing boards and curved shower rods. Basically nitpicking...

This is a great place to stay as long as a large group of kids are not coming in for a tournament. We have stayed many of times due to the location and the access to the private beach. The Breakfast they offer is okay if you like a quick cold breakfast. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Nice, clean room for a very reasonable price. Across street from beach, but easy access, tiki huts, optional massages on beach. Great location. Near restaurants and beach front dining. We plan to come back in the summer.

Upon being lost, (put in Anna Maria Island instead of Bradenton Beach) we called the hotel for direction. Front staff extremely pleasant and helpful.
