Surfside Inn and Suites – A Beach-Themed Hotel With Incredible Value!

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another blog post discussing all things Universal Orlando Resort! I am here to talk to you today about Surfside Inn and Suites.This hotel is one half of  Universal’s Endless Summer Resort. Its other half, Dockside Inn and Suites, will be discussed here on Your Universal Guide next week. Be sure to subscribe to ensure that you do not miss out on that post!

Surfside Inn and Suites is a family-oriented, Value hotel located onsite at Universal Orlando Resort. It has a relaxed, easy-breezy feel with a surf vibe throughout the grounds. Surfside is smaller than its sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites. The beach theme starts the moment you enter the bright, open lobby. You will notice several smaller check-in desks versus the traditional one long desk, along with self-service kiosks to print out items such as airline tickets or pre-purchased theme park tickets. 

This hotel features two different room types- standard rooms and 2-bedroom suites. With both room types, you will feel like you are on a beach getaway! I love the bright, airy feel of the rooms along with the beach theming. Standard rooms sleep up to 4 people and feature two queen beds, along with separate bath and vanity areas. 2-bedroom suites are a fantastic option for larger families. These sleep up to 6 people and include amenities such as a kitchenette, neat picnic table area, and separate bath and vanity areas. There are three queen beds in this suite- two in one of the bedrooms, and one in the other bedroom. Pool view rooms are available for an additional charge with both standard rooms and 2-bedroom suites, and water view rooms are available with 2-bedroom suites.  

Being in Universal Orlando Resort’s Value category, Surfside Inn and Suites prides itself on offering a low price point. However, even with a low price point, the hotel is packed with amenities! When you’re ready to sit back and relax, look no further than the unique, surfboard-shaped pool. It’s the perfect place to unwind and cool off. There are also plenty of poolside activities, such as ping-pong, Connect Four, and more. Be sure to check with the front desk to see specific activities for during your stay. Surfside Inn and Suites also features a fitness center, game room, Universal Store, and a Universal Vacation Planning Center. Onsite benefits at this hotel include early park admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay one hour before park opening, complimentary shuttle bus transportation between your hotel and the theme parks, resort-wide charging privileges with your room key, and complimentary merchandise delivery from the theme parks to your hotel.

Surfside Inn and Suites has you covered with convenient meal options as well. Beach Break Cafe is a food court with a variety of options featuring Southern California flavors and fresh ingredients. Do you want to hear what makes this dining location even better- no menu items are over $12! Beach Break Cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with options to suit the entire family. Prefer to have the convenience of having some food delivered to your room? Surfside Pizza Delivery will deliver pizzas directly to your room. Want to grab a poolside drink? Look no further than Sand Bar, located right next to the pool. It’s the perfect spot to grab a fruity drink and soak up the sun. Pina Colada anyone?! To round out dining options at Surfside Inn and Suites, a Starbucks is located in the lobby. This is super convenient to swing by right before heading out to the theme parks!

Surfside Inn and Suites is a fantastic option if you are looking to enjoy onsite benefits at Universal Orlando Resort without breaking the bank. Think this beachy atmosphere is for you? Contact me today to get started planning your adventure. I can’t wait to hear from you!
