Surf Side Hotel breakfast

A Surf Side Hotel guest from Charlottsville, VA says it best… “Do you have a favorite relative or friend in whose home you always feel relaxed and comfortable? No fussiness or ostentation, but well-appointed comfort and anything you need seems to have already been thought of and provided. That's what it's like to stay at Surf Side. Oceanfront or ocean-view rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, balconies with every room...lovely hot breakfast… Folks who really want to make sure you feel at home… Comfy beds and linens, lots of pillows to choose from, clean, well-kept and attractive bathrooms. It's the perfect location whether you are here to play on the beach with kids or wander around the historic and natural parks. In my opinion, this is as good as it gets on the Outer Banks. If you have any sort of mobility problem, you'll be glad to know all floors are reached with an elevator.
