Small, older unit but well kept and all needs meant. This was our third year to stay at Sunset Surf. This year we stayed in a unit without a complete kitchen but it did have a refrigerator, electric fry pan, toaster, coffee pot and microwave along with all the needed utensils. We were there for five meals and prepared them... More

I went to paint and decompress and walk on the beach. On a previous trip camping at Nehalem Bay, I'd seen this little motel and looked up their prices online. They also take reservations online, which is very helpful. The reasonable prices surprised me. Nice clean rooms, a heated pool, well managed. I stayed in a smaller view room and... More

We really enjoyed our visit and next time will stay longer. The location was fabulous and the staff were great. It was right at the beach and just around the corner from shops and restaurants. The heated swimming pool was a bonus.

My husband and I stayed here for one night before heading to Washington to visit family. The motel is in an amazing location, right across the street from the beach. Our room had a view of ocean, gas fireplace and small kitchenette. Sunset that night was beautiful. We had breakfast at Wanda's which was in the next town but well... More

What a hidden gem! This hotel is the cheapest in Manzanita and has the best view - located across the street from the ocean - opened our window and listened to the waves! Although it was small, it was really clean, and even had a refrigerator and coffee maker. We checked out some wine glasses from the front desk and... More

I hope that Manzanita stays like it is. We drove south through the other beach towns and I'm glad i researched this place. It is not a five star resort. But let me tell you why i gave it a high rating. 1. Location location location. Walking to all the restaurants in town. Right on the beach. 2. The beach.... More

Not your very modern, but oh so relaxing, clean motel. Very friendly staff, every time we visit, they've updated something else. Fantastic view of beach, full size appliances, wonderful beds. If you put "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door (even for 2 or 3 days), they comply & just leave clean towels outside your door.

Excellent room..it was like a condo but it was on the cheap. Nice little town, great customer service, and a spectacular view of the water from the living room. I'll definitely make a return visit here at Sunset Surf but next time I'll book in advance for 3 or 4 days as this place fills up quickly.

I like the sleepy town of Manzanita. The dog-friedly beach is great. The Sunset Surf Motel is a good place to stay -- you get a great view without much obstruction. In the family suite, the bathroom was updated, but the kitchen (esp the stove) was outdated. The beds were super comfy. Any problems we had (that stove!) were fixed... More

Awesome location right on the beach, and affordable when the the other more popular towns were booked up and expensive. It is centrally located close to Cannon beach and Tillamook Cheese factory. We stayed in the junior suite and they had a good sized refrigerator/freezer, microwave, sink, toaster oven, skillet, and dishes. Very cozy and cute, at the right price.... More
