Ocean's just a sand hill away and Gibby's 2 blocksPosted Dec 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Quiet in the winter, nice.little place. famous donut shop and most little shops are closed in oct but area is nice if you want peace and the ocean. Just make sure you ask for the Wi-Fi passcode and whatever else you need before the office closes in the evening. Pool closed in winter, well Dec. anyway. Can get a Starbucks drink a couple blocks down at the Courtyard and buy breakfast if you want there.

older hotelPosted Oct 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The rooms were very outdated and cramped. The surrounding location also rundown. Beach access was convenient and beautiful. Not a great location for a family.

Ok place to stay.Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Ocean front.
Cons: Remodeled rooms.
Location: The boardwalk is two blocks away with plenty of things to do and places to eat. Sea Witch Café is right across the street.
The hotel is ocean front, which is nice. The rooms are old and outdated and could use a major remodel. Great place to stay if you're not looking for anything fancy. Parking is very limited and tight, but a lot of things are within walking distance once you get there. Also, no Wi-Fi available. The Sea Witch Café is located right across the street. They have live bands on Fri and Sat nights, that you can clearly hear from your room. So if you're looking for an early evening or quiet atmosphere, this isn't the place to stay.

Modest Ocean-front Accomodation: Good ValuePosted Oct 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
An older, traditional motel offering ocean-front accommodation. Not new, not fancy, but good value and location for the price.

I was very disappointed to learn that a restaurant that entertains with a band was across the street. Fortunately, the band did cut off around 10:00 p.m.

No Complaints - We got what we paid forPosted Oct 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
We reserved a room at a cheap beach motel for a quick getaway and that's what we got. The basics were covered - clean and functional. It could use some general maintenance. Location couldn't be better - a few steps from the sand and within a quarter mile of several restaurants and hang out spots. The check-in was easy, staff was nice.

So worth the Ocean Front viewPosted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were so happy with the customer service from the Surfside. The room was a little rough but the view was amazing. We will be back.

Bach hotel to avoidPosted Sep 28, 2013
Pros: The staff were friendly and we got the impression some of the rooms overlooking the beach had been renovated but we weren't given one.
Cons: The room we stayed in (123) needed a complete refurbishment and updating.
Location: The Carolina Beach area and bars are a bit tacky but the beach itself is fantastic.
We booked this hotel on the cuff through Expedia but it did not match up to the advertising jingoism. The hotel is ideally situated for the beach and there is a nice bar and cafe opposite. However, the room we were given contained dated and solied furniture and it was not worth the extornionate sum of $150 per night. It had a small kitchen but the oven and refrigerator would not have looked out of place in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Small touches were missing such as the failure to provide an iron and coffee for the coffe making machine. Worst of all the security was lax as the door chain was broken and no attempt had been made to repair it. We would never stay there again.

Very Friendly Place to StayPosted Sep 17, 2013
The hotel staff did an excellent job of making us feel welcome and accommodating our request for where we wanted our rooms to be. They were very friendly! The rooms were plain but very clean and spacious, except for the bathroom which was a tight squeeze but again very clean and well maintained. I had trouble sleeping because the bed was not so comfy but then again, its a hotel so what do you expect. The balcony, pool, and amenities in the room such as flat screen tv, fridge, and microwave, were all very nice. I would definitely stay here again.
