We stayed at the Sunset Surf Motel only one night, but we were very satisfied. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The ceiling is quite low though. The location of the motel is great, because it is practically on the beach and there are many restaurants nearby.

This is clearly an older hotel, but our room was surprisingly large with a lovely view out to the ocean. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and with nice amenities (microwave, fridge, wifi) that make traveling easier. And the location just can't be beat. Office staff was friendly and helpful.

We stay here two or three times a year, and are always made to feel very welcome. The people are super accommodating, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is nice and you can't beat the view!

You can't miss with the Sunset Surf Motel and beach at Manzanita. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was clean. The bed very comfortable. The view from the balcony, Priceless!!! It's great for a couple's weekend getaway or a young family with kids that want to swim in a pool. Thanks.

Manzanita is one of our favorite secrets, and Sunset Surf is where we always stay. It is older, and nothing fancy, but the view is awesome, and the kids love swimming in a pool right next to the ocean! There are only about 3 hotels in Manzanita, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else! The staff is always friendly, the rates... More

I was on a motorcycle trip along HWY 101, that I have done multiple times. I have never stayed in Manzanita so thought I would give it a try. I always google motels, and read tripadvisor reviews to find those special non-chain places to stay. This place was a gem. I do not need much after being on a motorcycle... More

We have been staying at Sunset Surf Motel on July 4th weekend for 20 years and will continue to do so for as long as we can. The "condos" are perfect for a family vacation -- can't get a better ocean view or access to the beautiful, clean and vast beach! The community is friendly and we love staying there!... More

The first night I had my doubts as the two rooms on each side of us partied and kept me awake for most of the night. The other two nights were quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed the closeness to the beach and the bed was most comfortable.

We have stayed in two different buildings during the past two years at Sunset Surf. Both had beautiful ocean front views, very accommodating, friendly and helpful staff. This is not a 'luxurious' resort but very clean and everything we needed to enjoy our visit over the 4th of July including front row seats at both the parade and fireworks -... More

Brittni made sure our door got fixed. And she took care of us so that my girlfriend and I could easily split the bill. The room had 2 comfortable beds. A full kitchen . Best of all, a balcony for drinking wine at sunset.
