We stay at the coast a couple of times a yr. We used to stay in Cannon-beach but have recently been staying in Manzanita. Love that everything is close, no need to drive. Sunset Surf is oceanfront, allows pets and has excellent access to beach. The beds are very comfortable, gas fireplace makes room cozy,especially if weather is stormy. We... More

we planned on staying for two nights but because we were enjoying it so much we decided to stay an extra night. We were in the 'original' building but even though it an older building the management has done a very good job of maintaining and updating the rooms. Good location right on the beach. Quiet, comfortable in a quaint... More

We stayed recently for two nights. Being the offseason and midweek, there were only a couple of other rooms rented, so it was really quiet. We were able to bring our dogs with us, for a small extra charge. The stairs were a little difficult for our old dog to negotiate, next time we will have to get a bottom... More

Great service. Awesome view and a short walk from everything. Definitely will be back. The room was clean. The view awesome. The remodeling job an A+ job. The owners have really out some money into this place to make it top notch.

We had a great time at the Sunset Surf Motel, not only was the room clean and well appointed, there was a kitchen and ocean view. Manzanita is a really cute town and not far from Cannon Beach. If you are looking for a good rate I would definitely recommend this. We were traveling in the off-season so we got... More

Best value right on the beach, balcony , dog friendly rooms, tubs, full kitchen, fireplace, comfy beds, stayed in a March and even in the rain was awesome to walk the sands of Manzanita! Kitchen well stocked, they give you plenty of fluffy white towels, can't think of a negative thing to say! Quiet in the Budd building upstairs!

Our second stay in the Bud Building. The rooms are spotless, steps from the beach and shops, and it's extremely handy having a full kitchen. Unfortunately, despite signs prohibiting, my neighbors smoked on their balconies, and patios - which meant my fresh sea air was polluted with burning tobacco. Pets are allowed, so there are some yipping dogs - which... More

We decided mid-day Saturday to spend the night on the coast so that we could have all day Sunday to have fun hiking and exploring. The room was small, but the bed gave us the best rest in quite some time. The shower also was very good. Even though we did not linger in Manzanita, this is a good location... More

This is our 3rd year in a row staying at Sunset Surf. We've come down to watch the Oscars and have a mid-winter getaway. We've always stayed in the Ashley building, top floor. While the location is great, it seems as though the hotel has not made improvements since last year. The kitchen and TV were upgraded last time we... More

We have spent one weekend at the sunset surf, after a few other weekends at other Manzanita establishments. Overall, it's a great value for those of us looking to travel with dogs (ours absolute LOVES the beach and any sort of roadtrip, so leaving her at home is never an option). I was a little disappointed to find that the... More
