We spent a long Veterans Day weekend with the grandchildren at the Surf Side Hotel. It was perfect for us. We wanted to tour the lighthouses and the Northern Outer Banks area. The indoor pool was a must have and the kids enjoyed it very much. We were upgraded to a one-bedroom condo. The extra space and ability to cook in was wonderful. Also enjoyed the happy hour with wine. There were a few maintenance issues that we reported to the front desk; they did not detract from our stay, but I could not give a 5 star because of those items.

The staff was so welcoming & friendly, very clean room, & quiet environment. The complimentary wine social & breakfast, even though I didn’t take advantage of them, were an added bonus to booking with this hotel! I will definitely be back!

Oh my goodness, this was exactly where we needed to stay to rejuvenate and relax. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and spacious (we stayed on the first floor), the shower was wonderful with the thickest towels to wrap up in and then the breakfast buffet was out of this world. Even though we were there in the off season, we found lots to do. Highly recommend the Wrights Brothers Nat'l Park and listening to the ranger 30 minute informational lesson. There's so much more to that event than "they flew an airplane" like we are told in school. Lots of great places to eat. And then to return to our room that had a couch and just relax. Yes, highly recommend this hotel especially in the off season.
