No. No no

The only thing great about this hotel is the view and that's basically all you're paying for. When we first got there the air conditioner was out for hours and the maintenance man bought us up a little plastic fan -_- thanks. Also we were told the room accommodatess 8 (there was 6 of us) but when we got there it was only 2 beds in a tiny room with literally NO walking space. My young child and I had to share a twin sized hard cot for 5 days because they didnt want to give us another room even though we were willing to pay more money. The bed sheets had stains on them, our lamps didnt work, windows were dirty, chipped walls and paint and windows had mold on them. The lobby was hot, smelly and outdated and had 2 elevators but one was constantly being taken up by housekeeping and the other one was very slow so there would be about 15 people in a hot and small lobby waiting to use 1 elevator. Also when we first got to our room our "complimentary" soaps were already open and apparently used. We paid almost 2000 dollars to stay at a crammy hotel with a great ocean view. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Take your money elsewhere

Outdated A/C and back up power systems

The A/C system is out dated and barely cooled the room on the 'high' setting. Power went out and so did the a/c! The back up power system is outdated and thus no a/c for over 8 hrs! Had to check out early and ruined my vacation.

Free breakfast could of had solme protine. It was always so packed that u couldn't move or get food when u did there were times u didn't have a place to sit. Over all was ok place to stay. Right on. Beach this was great.

I would find somewhere else.

Nothing to great about the Surfside. In the ad they listed a hot tub. Come to find out that the hot tub in the pool hasn't worked in years and now it's just a small kiddy pool. Very upset with this one of the reasons that i booked here. And for the breakfast was very poor too. No variety and not enough condiments. As for the room it did have a good view. But i think i could have found a better place for the money.

Perfect for a beach vacation!

I booked through O****z and had a lot of trepidation regarding the quality of the hotel. I was really pleasantly surprised with the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel and the location was just perfect. We got to watch the sunrise from our bed and had a great time overall! The staff was very courteous and friendly. The room had a microwave and a mini fridge too! We are definitely going back. Could have used a coffee machine in the room though!

Great time

My family and I enjoyed our time at the Surfside Hotel. The room had a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. The hotel pool was warm and inviting. The continental breakfast was just OK, with self service waffles, which the lines were was very long, and the other choices were just OK. The staff was a little disappointing, they did not explain the parking very well and the layout of the hotel. But overall Virginia Beach is a wonderful vacation spot and the hotel is in the middle of the boardwalk with convenience to everything there.

4th July weekend

The room was okay to meet the purpose for the 4th of July. But, not worth the $800.00 plus for the three days. The room was run down, and the balcony door hard to open rusty. The bathroom need repairs. The hotel staff and cleaning crew is friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast. I have been a regular at the sand castle since 2000. Don't know if they give me 10% staying at the surf side hotel.

For what we wanted it was perfect.

The room and staff were very helpful. The only thing I would say is that the floor was not vacumned while we were their.. Other than that the room was confortable and we would have no problem staying their again.

ok for the holiday

well i know i went during a holiday week but theres never an excuse to go in the room and find two pieces of trash through out the room. Also freaked me out when i lifted one of the two beds there was a bug under the blanket. The staff was very nice. They were a little rude and ridiculous about the check out though. They started knocking at 11. I had asked for late checkout which was 12. They started calling the room at 1212 yelling at us that its after 12. I had a lot of things to carry seeing how it was my vacation. I would have understood had it been 1230. The front people at the check in are very friendly.
