They will go out of the way to make sure that your stay is perfect. A shout out to Carla, Leroy, and Cheryl, the first to greet you at check...

We are very happy we chose Surf Side Hotel over a chain hotel. Great location, centrally located on the Outer Banks with a great view of the ocean. Our King bed was devine and the room spacious and very clean. Nice balcony with tall Andirondack chairs to maximize the view. Although the pool was closed and undergoing refurbishment, it looks...

Our first visit to the Outer Banks. Traveled the island north and south during our stay and could not have picked a better hotel or location. Friendly staff, comfortable, attractive and spotless rooms and the beach at your door step. The convenience of breakfast was an added perk.

I cannot say enough good things about the Surf Side. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and it was worth every penny!! Two balconies with outdoor seats overlooking the ocean and able to leave balcony doors open all night listening to the ocean. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the central location is perfect for exploring Nags Head and all...

We stayed two nights in this hotel. I am so glad that we chose Surf Side. All of the staff is friendly and accommodating. Our hotel area had an elevator (there must be another part of the hotel that doesn't have one). The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. We had ocean view rooms (not ocean front) and were...

Our views were beautiful and the beach was so peaceful! Nice clean rooms with comfortable beds. Continental breakfast was okay, would have been better if there were some more protein options (eggs, sausage, etc. )

The Surf Side Hotel at Nags Head was our headquarters for completing our Hwy. 64 tour-from Murphy to Manteo. Location was great with restaurants nearby as well as attractions and sites to see and tour. Rooms were spotless, well appointed and we loved the screen sliding door to open up and let in the breeze and sounds of the ocean...

My wife and I stayed in Surfside in early April during cold and windy weather. We were glad to have found it because we really used the heated pool and the exercise room. The rooms are clean and well equipped with microwaves and refrigerators as well as beach views. Some of the rooms have lofts, which is a plus. Oh,...

We stayed in the south building, Oceanside. Great location. View of the dune and partial of the ocean. Walk out the back of the building to observation deck for sunrises. Drive north to lighthouses and drive south to lighthouses. Nags Head has fantastic restaurants. We will be back at the Surf Side Hotel again. Great staff Internet connection was spotty...
