The room was clean and quite serviceable. The beach is across the road and offers a huge expanse to walk. The deck is shared by all the rooms (5-6) on the floor, but that's okay since everyone is not out there at the same time. My only concern was the sliding glass door which is the entrance to the room... More

Cannot beat the location to the best beach on N Oregon Coast. Well maintained, clean, nice people. A weekend in the summer will always be noisier than a weekday. Great access to the beach, found 42 sand dollars in 20 minutes, but you need to go early.

The location is wonderful. Right across the road from the beach and walkable to all the shops/restaurants in town. Unfortunately, our room was very dirty and there were sugar ants all over the fireplace tile (which would then crawl up on the table). The corners of the room definitely had not been vacuumed in a long while. Don't even think... More

Perfect view of the Pacific. The motel is just what you need and nothing else. Kitchen has all the basics, the bed and bathroom are quite serviceable. Use the pool. Watch the sun set. Sleep with the ocean waves putting you to sleep. Bring a good book, some sandals to track on the beach, and watch the world go by.... More

We only stayed for one night but would come back and stay for a longer period again. Great experience. We read some of the reviews and had some concerns about the stuffiness and mattress complaints so we called. They were so nice and helpful on the phone so we booked it. It is a very well maintained property with the... More

Very nice, well kept motel. The location could not be better. Staff is friendly and very helpful. We had a problem with a shower knob in the evening and it was fixed immediately. The rooms are clean and well equipped. It's not a "fancy" place, which works well for us. Been there twice, once with family (2 rooms) and once... More

We love staying at Sunset Surf!! What a terrific view, super beach access, very comfortable bed, nice kitchenette, and plenty of space. Housekeeping is very efficient and helpful. Also nice to be so close to places to eat and shop, and have the beach right there too. Front desk people are great. We like that it is not a "foo-foo"... More

I never expected an affordable motel to be so nice! The Sunset Surf is fantastic. We stayed in a great upper corner unit with huge windows overlooking the beach. The room was well-appointed, clean, large, and had soft sheets, and we really enjoyed the proximity to the beach, pool, and town. Such nice employees, too. A wonderful place for our... More

This is a very simple place with a great location. If you're looking for an affordable place to stay at the beach that accepts dogs this should definitely be a place to consider, I know we'll be back!

Manzanita has Ocean Ave separating the hotels from the beach, and the Sunset Surf, right on a busy corner, is convenient to the beach and has excellent views. At times, however, we felt like we were in Santa Monica because of the congestion outside the room with pedestrians and motorists, and we were certainly in a fishbowl with glass on... More
