Surf Side is a great location. Easy to get to the ocean. Close to attractions and fun restaurants. Covid 19 has affected many of the amenities, housekeeping services and breakfast facilities. However, Surf Side is dealing with them well and offers alternative services whenever possible. We will go back (and stay longer).

First timers to the ONX. Loved it!!!
My daughter and I wanted to see the Outer Banks and we got so lucky when we decided to stay at the Surf Side Hotel. The location was perfect and central in relation to everywhere we visited. Being on the beach was beautiful. We went out to the beach each morning to see the sun rise. The breakfast was delicious. We had several breakfast options to choose from. We picked up our breakfast in the morning and ate in our room due to COVID. This is far better then how some other hotels are now serving breakfast. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. The hot tub was perfect after a full days activities of site seeing and hiking. The staff were great too! I’m sure we will be back!! The view was a partial view of the ocean but all we saw were sand dunes. That was fine though because we wanted to be on the beach not just looking at it!

We were very pleased with the hotel and our room. Our room on the fourth floor had a great view of the ocean. The room was very clean, and the staff helpful. The take out breakfasts were well done with a range of selection. We plan on returning to this hotel soon.
