Literally just checked out of this Hotel and first and foremost the staff was SO NICE!! From check in to check out to anyone we saw working hard...we booked a Junior Suite for our family of 4...and lucked out with a balcony view (Room 212) my kiddos loved watching the surfers from the balcony every morning.. steps from the beach with tons of shops, major stores, restaurants and amazing sunsets...We are looking forward to booking again!! Thank you to Carla and Stephanie at the front desk!!!!

I wanted a quiet relaxing relatively inexpensive beach vacation and decided to stay at Surfer Beach. This is an older hotel so a little bit dated HOWEVER!!! We extended our vacation 5 days because the staff was AMAZING. They were very attentive to our needs. They have a very cool text service whereby you text your needs and we received a timely response. They girls at the front desk were sooo friendly. Thank you Carla, Anne and Stephanie! Oh and also you are directly on the pier. I’ll be back.

We had a great experience here at this hotel, except for the hot water. We stayed three days and showered twice a day and only got hot water one time. We called the front desk and the gentelman told me to let the water run for atleast 20-25 mins (there goes water conservation) so we let the water run and run and still never got hot water. Other than that we had a great stay.

Five stars for the price, overall it’s a great deal - the the staff was excellent, kind and helpful- staff gets an absolute five. We arrived at 3am because of car troubles and the woman who helped us check in was extra understanding (long brown hair, blue eyes, light complexion) We loved the room, the location is wonderful, literally everything is a five EXCEPT I took a quick shower last night and at the very hottest the water was so lukewarm I was almost shivering - so I guess that being my only complaint, I give you guys a 5, but if I were more of a brat I would be so upset about the cold water. I tried again this morning, it was hardly warm at best. But again, the staff was wonderful, we were given a great deal, appreciated late check out very much, so my rating is definitely a 5! Thank you very much 🙏🏼

It was a great place to get away and relax. Great view of the ocean, and there were plenary of places open along the boardwalk for takeout. My only issue was the water was lukewarm and I love hot showers! I will most definitely return!
