The hotel is part of the Endless Summer Resort complex, which will also house a sister hotel, Dockside Inn and Suites, when it opens in 2020. Both will be value-driven hotels with standard rooms and rates starting at $73. 

Guests will have access to benefits like early park admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, as well as complimentary transportation.

Surfside Inn’s debut will come nearly a year after the opening of Aventura Hotel. A prime value hotel, the property is billed as tech-savvy with a sleek design, providing a more laid-back getaway for park goers.
