We were in town for a wedding and I found this hotel through a routine search. The price fit into our budget plus it was close to the wedding location. I had never been to Anna Maria Island and really did not know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise!!! It was so convenient to several beachside bars and cafes ALL within a very short walking distance. The front desk staff was pleasant. They even called after check in to make sure our room met our expectations. I really liked the fact the the room was stocked with some dishes, microwave, and coffee maker. The outside facilities were neat and clean. We even stumbled upon a group using the gas grills and they offered us a beer and snack. We are coming back in the spring and the Silver Surf is definitely going to be our place to stay.

I'm a local so I have stayed at most of the hotels, condos etc. on Bradenton Beach and the surrounding area over the last 25 years. I really like the Beach Club and this was my 4th visit. Its always clean and I love the full updated kitchen.
I get the one bedroom. My only complaint is the noise factor between the rooms. This visit a small child was crying for hours late into the night. When I closed the bedroom door and had the TV on it was not as bad. If you were in one of the studio units it would have been terrible. Not sure what can be done about that. The beautiful beach is across the street and favorite restaurants are close by. Its like a mini vacation for me!

We love the location and the room was very nice. This was our second time staying there. Housekeeping services are pretty poor - you just have to do things for yourself - you get clean linens and that's about it. The walls are a bit thin, so we had a couple of noisy nights. We'll go back, though.

Pleasant stay. Big room, very spacious, newer kitchen. Balcony was very large. Gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico. Front desk person was very personable.
Only complaints would be that the tile floor was not mopped very well and housekeeping fee, which I felt was excessive for what little work we left for housekeeping to do (especially since the floor was filthy already). Perhaps the fee should be based upon the occupants of the room and not to each and every one. We left only the change of bedding and towels for housekeeping to do, normal room turnover maintenance.
Despite that, we would definitely return to this hotel.
"Nice, quant, comfortable.by beach. great location"
If you are looking for the perfect little get-away place, this is it. One block from beach. Quiet, peaceful location. Not congested. Has shady, grassy, front yard area with comfortable outdoor furniture to relax right outside hotel door. Area for kids to play. This is a small, boutique motel. The rooms have kitchenettes. The beds comfortable, the rooms clean and tidy, and, location is perfect. Close walking distance to everything. One block from beach- but can see beach from hotel road. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again.
