Good view nice beach

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Stayed here before just need a good place to sleep Don't need all the extra. This motel provides that. If you are are looking for more go to a 800.00 dollar a night hotel. Has the best view

Run-down, beautiful view, ant infestation

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Beautiful view
Cons: Needs major repairs and extermination.
Location: Gas station close by for a few supplies. Swizzle South Shore within walking distance.
This hotel is run-down and outdated. It needs some major TLC. We had quite an ant infestation. We will not stay here again.

Beautiful view but in need of serious refreshing.

Posted Aug 16, 2014
The location is good and the ocean views are great but the facilities need serious renovation and furnishings need to be replaced. Chairs and sofas had holes and were torn. No amenities.

Quiet, secluded rooms

Posted Aug 12, 2014
This is a lovely and hidden gem with fantastic views of the ocean and a beautiful, almost deserted beach just a short walk away. No, there are no activities or amenities or restaurant onsite, but if you're looking for a beautiful, quiet place where you can just relax and enjoy the sand and water and sun, Surf Side is fantastic. We come back every year.

Beautiful ocean views!

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Wonderful ocean views.
Cons: Pest control for ants.
Location: Easy access to beaches, restaurants and buses.
Bermuda is a wonderful place to visit. Hotel is centrally located and easy access to beaches, buses and restaurants. Hotel is charming in a quaint way and was probably very grand at one point in time. The grounds are well taken care of and the staff were friendly.

Close to nicest beaches!

Posted Jul 7, 2014
My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. We stayed here during the 4th of July weekend. The rooms could definitely use some upgrading, as most guests will agree. That being said, I don't think anyone comes to Bermuda to stay in a room. The rooms themselves were clean, the pool was clean, etc - can't complain about this at all! The best part of this place is it's proximity to the nicest beaches in Bermuda. Jobson's Cove.... - it's great. Not at all disappointed when taking the low cost into consideration!

Beautiful Location

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: The ocean view
Cons: Yes, see above
Location: Beaches, Swizzel IInn, Paraquet Restaurant
We enjoyed our stay at Surf Side. The views are beautiful. The rooms need to be updated and the rooms were not super clean. The patio needed to be scrubbed and swept down. We had ants in the kitchen & on the floor next to the balcony door. The screen door was torn and needed to be replaced. We would go back to Surf Side if we had a nicer room.

Stunning view!

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: View, quiet, beach.
Cons: Needs some renovation. Does not have a restaurant/cafe, however the market at the gas station (2 min walk) offers good food.
Location: There is a bus stop next to the hotel's driveway. You can get anywhere by bus. Buy passes from bus terminal in Hamilton.
You should wait for low tide to get a larger beach area. Chances to be alone at the hotel's beach are pretty good. Elbow beach is also really close.
