Been going there for over 20 years ... great view and access to the beach at a very reasonable price. Always clean and the folks working the desk friendly and courteous. Also, easy walk to everything in town.

The room was clean and a good size, big enough for a family of 4 or 5. We stayed in the Budd building in a family suite, which had 1 bedroom with a queen and another queen bed in the main living area which also had a sleeper sofa, dining table and gas fireplace. I wouldn't call it a complaint,... More

A few minor annoyances aside...we really enjoyed our stay! There was some confusion at check-in regarding our dog and it seemed like the staff had to do some room switching but they were able to resolve it. Our room was nicely decorated, very modern. Because the motel is so close to the beach, the view is really spectacular! The problem... More

First of all very reasonable prices! Secondly- this is one of the cleanest motels I've ever stayed in. Even the bed cover/comforter had been washed between guests- very important! This was also a pet room. It didn't have any strange and strong "perfume" smells from chemical fresheners. All the appliances and lamps worked as promised. I couldn't hear the other... More

We arrived late and found the room still available. We got to the room which was very clean and tidy. The front desk was very nice and friendly. I will definitely come back for my next vacation. I love Manzanita.

Friendly staff, great location and comfortable clean room. Basic hotel in a world class location. This says I need 200 characters so I'll just filibuster a little bit so I can submit my review. The end.

We stayed in room 27. It has a great panoramic view and is directly above the office and street. The size of the room is very generous. The bed is a king. The sheets weren't fitted well and twice during the night I felt them come off the mattress under me. The covers were super light and there was not... More

We stayed in November so the beach was cold so having a warm place that you could see the ocean was wonderful! We had a suite (104) with two double beds and a kitchenette, which is great for a family. There were three adults, two kids, and a baby in our suite and there was so much room for kids... More

I don't even want to post an accurately glowingly positive review as that will make it harder for me to get reservations in the future. :) The Sunset Surf is a hidden jewel in a great little town. I have been staying there for at least 10 years, 2-4 times a year. The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly,... More
