At first our family was super excited about staying at Surfside inn. We had stayed at Dock Inn previously and that was amazing. Well can’t say the same for Surfside the room and service was good .

At first our family was super excited about staying at Surfside inn. We had stayed at Dock Inn previously and that was amazing. Well can’t say the same for Surfside the room and service was good . But the pillows were flat and uncomfortable and the downstairs food court was awful. Limited choices, poor quality, no variety and the staff was more asleep then awake on the job. Very disappointing. If your staying a Surfside you better bring extra cash because Starbucks food is better and eating out is tastier and more appealingly or you could always cross the street to Dockside and eat very well.

I mistakenly saw this hotel had 4+ stars and read only a few reviews without spending enough time really reading them carefully. I missed key points others mentioned…the walls are PAPER THIN. Everything was in disrepair (screeching appliances, cold shower, running toilets). Onsite food was overpriced junk food. I honestly considered checking out… Read more
I mistakenly saw this hotel had 4+ stars and read only a few reviews without spending enough time really reading them carefully. I missed key points others mentioned…the walls are PAPER THIN. Everything was in disrepair (screeching appliances, cold shower, running toilets). Onsite food was overpriced junk food. I honestly considered checking out at 9pm just to get out of there. This hotel ONLY makes sense if you will be gone literally ALL day and then sleep through anything. Read less

Everything was great definitely would recommend and will be sure to visit here the next vacation. The resort was clean and convenient, and staff was very friendly. Bus to and from theme parks was very quick and easy to access.

We stayed for 7 nights and I highly recommend this hotel! Super close to the parks. Great staff. Clean! (Water in bathroom sink did smell a little off but nothing bad compared the the rest of everything being fantastic!)

Convenient, clean, excellent service, friendly staff. Prices at quick service was fair. Pool was heated and quiet as there wasn’t many guests staying at the hotel. Would definitely stay there again. Only issue we encountered was noisy neighbours until 2:00 am.
