“absolutely worth it if you can lock in a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

sincerely enjoyed my time here. Found the staff to be warm and genuine. The best part was the view from our 4th floor ocean side room. From bed we could watch the waves by the moonlight. We had the balcony door cracked a little so we could be lulled to sleep by the ocean sounds. That really made it for us. Bathroom was nice(especially the oversized tub). The bed was better than average. The internet reception was poor but functional for emails but not netflix. Who needs netflix when you have that ocean view though:) They also have a nice DVD collection. The secret to this place is making sure you go when its not to crowded and can get a good deal.

Room Tip: Higher the better. We found the 4th floor to be perfect. No noise and an incredible view.

We have been guests at the Surfsand for many years and have always enjoyed our visits to this beautiful resort. We have never have any problems during our frequent stays, but during our annual New Years Eve vacation we encountered a couple issues in our room that we reported to guest services. On the first morning we discovered the blind in our room was broken and would not go up, and on the second day the shower head fell off. In both cases, guest services responded promptly and fixed the situation within an hour while we were out on our morning beach walks. We were very impressed with how quickly and efficiently they addressed our concerns. They responded immediately and made sure everything was fixed right away. We have always loved the staff at the Surfsand and feel they really care and try their best to make sure you enjoy your time there. They are simply the best!

We've lived in Oregon 20 years and have made numerous trips to the coast, but never for some reason to the Surfsand. We read the good reviews here and are happy to confirm that this is a very special place. We had one-bedroom oceanfront suites which were will furnished and supplied. The view of the ocean was great, and we sat by the fireplace and watched the storms come in. We will definitely be coming back

We stayed here for our honeymoon. Had a wonderful corner suite with a beautiful view of haystack rock. My only complaints would be that the light switches for the toilet area of the bathroom were on the outside of the doors, which was slightly inconvenient, and the fireplace in our bedroom didn't work. The heater worked fine, though, so we didnt really need it, and the living room fireplace worked. The bed was extremely comfortable, the staff very friendly, and the room service was excellent! Would definitely reccomend this place.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a beachfront room...great view!

We had a great weekend at Cannon Beach. The entire town is shut down over Christmas so I would suggest dinner reservations if you are going over a holiday weekend. We found two restaurants. One allowed customers without reservations and the other restaurant required reservations. I would not pay extra for a partial view room. We were looking across a parking lot and between two buildings to see the ocean. The hotel staff was very nice and allowed us to check in early. It was raining and very windy so with no shopping, it made our weekend that much nicer to sit near the in-room fireplace. The indoor pool is great, the bathrooms were spacious with a huge soaking tub and stand alone shower. You are steps from the beach. My only negatives were it is a pet friendly establishment. I have allergies and requested a non-pet room. I had short white hairs on my socks and clothes so I'm guessing it wasn't pet free. I didn't break out so I didn't complain to staff. We had a great stay but there was nothing unique about this facility so we will most likely try others in the future. If you haven't stayed here, I would certainly recommend you try it at least once.

We just returned from a 4 night/5 day stay at the Surfsand Resort in Cannon Beach. It is the perfect location for a Pacific Northwest getaway and one where you can bring your furry friend with you!

Upon arrival, we were immediately upgraded to the top floor of the ocean facing building fourth floor, where we had sweeping views of the Pacific and Haystack Rock from our balcony. In our upgraded room they had already placed a pet arrival basket (treats, dog blanket, towels and food/water bowls) + they had left a nice treat of microwave popcorn and salt water taffy for my birthday celebration. Nice touches there.

The rooms are very clean and have all the top amenities - HDTV, DVD player (FREE rentals from an extensive/new list), microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker with coffee from Sleepy Monk (local coffee roaster), TemperPedic mattress, Aveda bath products, large tub and separate shower.

Park your car and forget using it as you'll be inclined to walk everywhere. And you definitely can from the Surfsand.

We enjoyed our time there and look forward to going back soon!

There was a storm the night we were coming and the 101 had flooded and the staff called us as well as everyone else to let us know. That way people could adjust there route and not have to backtrack as much. Beautiful place with great rooms and we had a fantastic couple nights. Will stay there again next time we are at Cannon Beach. Thanks so much. Jason Logue
