We stayed here 5 years ago in room 18. This year we wanted the same room but had to take 19. It was even better; bigger room, bigger bathroom and kitchen area. Three of us had plenty of room to move around. Staff is very accommodating; possibly under new ownership? I would still stay here again in the future. It's... More

I have smaller kids so the pool is verrrrry handy-- much appreciated by my kids- in ANY kind of weather, which is needed for Manzanita. We alternate between pool, beach, pool, beach, shopping, lather, rinse and repeat. The vibe at Manzanita is more laid back. Food options are limited but the friendliness of the place makes up for it. Love... More

It's been 20+ years since we stayed in this same hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at how well it has been kept up. There have been modern updates to cabinets and bathrooms, flat screen TV, nice decore and comfortable beds. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with our entire stay. Since it was peak season and we... More

Very friendly staff. Incredible view of the beach. Fantastic value. Full kitchen. Full fridge. Very clean washroom. The pool looked beautiful but we didn't have time to swim in it. This place is amazing!

Pros: Overall, a really nice place for the price. Decent size room, solid building, quiet, pretty comfortable bed, great location right on the beach, just a block off the main drag. Has all the basic amenities, w/kitchenette stocked for 2, probably can get more dishes on request. Everything clean, and in good condition - a rare find for older beachside... More

Beautiful view. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Very reasonable. We loved staying here. I stayed here with my husband and his mom. We stayed in 34 which has two beds, one in the living room and one in a separate room. This was perfect for our situation. It also had a small kitchenette, which was very convenient. The balcony is not... More

Great classic west coast beach motel. Room was an ample size and quiet. Choose a room on the 2nd floor for the best view - worth the extra $. If you do stay on the first floor of the main building, make sure you are not near the pool which will completely block your view of the water. Staff was... More

This motel is very clean and the room was comfortable. You are across the street from the beach with a view of the windsurfers. Don't stay here if you don't like children and families as there are many family groups. However we enjoyed watching the family fun. This is a bargain, price wise, for a motel right on the beach.
