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.

We could barely sleep in the bed. The mattress couldn't be worse. It prevents you from sleeping. Should have been replaced years ago.Yes, there is an ocean view -- if you leave the curtain open. But then you're staying in a department store window, because 31B is at the top of the stairs, and everyone has to tromp past it... More

We've stayed here twice. The first time, several years ago, we came off-season and got a nice room with a beach view and deck. This time, we came at peak season when prices were high, so we decided to save money by getting a budget "sleeping room" for two nights. When we arrived, we found that our room had not... More

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
