Sometimes good fortune is the product of happenstance. From our first encounter with the manager at Surfsand, we knew that we would be staying at a place that was professionally run with the customer’s needs at the forefront. That sounds like hyperbole, but first the back-story… After spending six days in Portland we had planned to cap off our trip... More

Every room I have stayed in (and I have stayed there plenty) is amazing and updated. There is ONE issue I had last time with the hotub, though. There was so much Bromine in the water that it made it impossible to use. Everyone, including kids, were coughing and we all had to leave the pool area. It was so... More

We requested a great view. No doubt we paid for it but it is worth it. This is a great, quiet, relaxing place to stay. Close enough to town (Cannon Beach, 2 minute drive). The staff is friendly and accommodating. We would definately go back.

I couldn't stop staring out our hotel window at Haystack rock, the waves, the beach, and all of the dogs romping in the sand. I am so happy that we stayed here. Our room was steps (like maybe 10) from the sandy beach. We took long walks on the beach, taking in all the sights. Being from Colorado, we were... More

First and overall impression of this resort is fantastic! The lobby is warm and inviting and the staff is friendly and helpful.

We had an excellent vacation looking out at Haystack Rock and beautiful sunsets while warming ourselves by the fire. Our room was gorgeous with a wonderful tub that allowed us to stargaze. We were with our 4 year old and infant, and the kids are free at two local restaurants. They actually had a baby buffet on the kids menu.... More

We've stayed at the Surfsand before, but never on the 4th floor. We had a "beachfront" room which was great (with a patio deck that faced the ocean), however the low rooftop made it feel very confined.
