For six years now, we have returned to Sunset Surf for New Years week....it's great to get out of town and stay at a clean, friendly and reasonably Motel...right on the beach, you can walk everywhere and the Motel won't break your wallet(unlike some of the local eateries). We LOVE this place and Manzanita Grocery and the Sand Dune Pub...some... More

Sunset Surf Motel was a great get away. The beds were super comfy! Slept great for two nights. Our dog was welcome and he slept great too! The little kitchen was more than adequate. The office had crab crackers that they loaned us for the fresh crab we bought and had cooked at the Jetty. We could watch the ocean... More

We love this place! Some of the rooms have full kitchens which is quite handy when you have kids or friends and just don't want to go out for every meal, besides, I'm a great cook;-) We have been out here many times with friends, book a few rooms, eat together, beach walks, fun and dancing at the Sandune pub...

Manzanita is a great little seacoast town with sufficient restaurants, coffee shops, and other great activities to fill a nice weekend. This is the 2nd new years eve/day we've stayed there with friends; last year we were too late to get a room here, although our friends did. The Sunset Surf was far better than the dog friendly place we... More

There is nothing between this motel and the beach but a quiet beach road. It is within a half block of a coffee place and pizza restaurant and within two blocks of the grocery store and excellent tavern. Our room was small but the bed was very comfortable, the towels were clean and new and we could have used the... More

It IS all about location. This property is the closest We've ever stayed to the ocean in the US. Literally, there's a 3-4 ft patio, a little strip of grass, a small two-lane street...and then sand & ocean. The result is almost Zen-like as one watches the breakers rolling in up and down a 7 mile beach. Even though it... More

Our second stay at Sunset Surf. We brought our dog along, and reserved a pet friendly room with a full ocean view. We were in the original building, overlooking the pool. The room was small and tidy, linens and bathroom all clean. Staff used an inoffensive deodorizer, but it is one of the dog rooms, so there's a whiff of... More

The views from this place are worth the money. Room was super clean and everybody was extremely nice. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone. The beach is literally right across the street.

When we need a coastal fix, we check Sunset Surf first. We've stayed there at least ten times. I'm a bit afraid it is getting discovered. Our dog loves the beach in front, our grandkids love the pool and the beach. Our budget likes the price! We love the winter price for a romantic getaway. The fireplaces make it cozy.... More
