I like Manzanita because it's smaller and more inexpensive than Cannon Beach and because it's not touristy like Seaside. It's quant like Cannon Beach but also less busy. Great bakeries and good restaurants. I like the Sunset Surf Motel because of the location, price and amenities. If you have small children I recommend a second floor suite in the Budd... More

The location of this motel could not be better. It is right across the street from the beach. The area is quiet and the town is small but really nice and interesting, and very dog friendly. The motel is comfortable, very clean and dog friendly. Some rooms have kitchens, making it easy to prepare meals, a home away from home

My husband and I stayed here with our newborn for a mid week getaway. We stayed in room 28 in the original building which was described as having a "partial ocean view" but had decent views of the north and south parts of the coast. The building looks old from the outside but was the room was clean and comfy.... More

Stayed in #27 with the king size bed and it was very comfortable. And the view is beautiful. The only thing I would ask for is a better coffee pot the one in that room is terrible. Another thing is watch out when taking a shower especially if you have kids, the water goes from hot to cold and it... More

Checked in for 2 nights on second floor of remote building. Room was nice, but bed was small (Double?). View was awesome and accessibility to shopping was good. Kitchen & fireplace were nice. Dog friendly beach was a plus for some. No breakfast, but coffee shops nearby. Or bring your own coffee and filters.

Even though the room was small it was nicely decorated, and had everything one would need in a hotel room. I had one thing that prevented me from giving this property a higher rating, and it was the condition of the mattress. It was uncomfortable and felt past it's prime. My Wife and I were tossing and turning all night... More

We have been going to Sunset Surf for the past 5 years. Twice a year we take a trip to the beach. Once with the child and once just us adults. We have never been disappointed with the facilities. This time we brought our dogs and everyone in that building was considerate of other people. I hate to say this... More

I love Manzanita and everything about it. I stay at the Sunset Surf because I have a beautiful view of the Ocean from my room and I can leave the door open and listen to the sounds. I get up early in the morning make my coffee and head to the beach where I take a long much needed walk... More

Our first visit and if we are in the area will return. Love the view, fireplace and the mini kitchen. Bed is quite comfy and nice towels. Think the housekeeper rushed the cleaning of the room though, the table was sticky and I ended up cleaning the counter in the bathroom as well. Cheers

One of our favorite motels on the Oregon Coast...still so peaceful and, yes, old fashioned, but we love it. Perfect place to stay with pets, as we saw from others. Next trip my doggies go with us! Hope this will remain around a long time, and not give way to modern highrises! Only wish that motel would provide a way... More
