“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel while we were attending a friend's wedding that was taking place at the resort. The room was spectacular, we had a view of the ocean from our room, it came with a DVD player, and another TV in the bathroom! The bed was so comfortable! We ordered room service in the morning for breakfast and the food was amazing. I would reccomend this hotel for anyone who wants to pamper themselves.

We get to be a part of many beginnings for newly married couples. We see many happy couples come the resort to spend time together. Taking the time to invest in a relationship away from normal every day life is key. Thank you for visiting our resort.

We have been to many 5 star hotels but this one was beyond our expectations. At check-in we received hot cookies and milk (free), a list of about 100 movies we could choice from. Once we selected one they had it delivered to our room with a bag of popcorn (again free). The room was clean and was located on the north side of the complex. It had a Northern view of the ocean. We could lay in the bed and see the ocean. We could be in the 2 person tub and see the ocean. The room had 2 televisions, a mini refridge, microwave, glasses, plates, hotcider, hot chocolate, and tea all free! The bed was a tempur-pedic. We ordered room service and it was the same price as if you went to the restaurant, they just add 18% tip. Well worth the experience.

It's the little things that make the experience great. I'm the lucky one that gets to taste the cookies for quality control. Fresh baked every day, how can you blame me?

This is our second time staying at the Surfsand and it was just as amazing as the first. The rooms are great...the bed is so comfortable! The location is perfect, the rooms are clean, and the best thing about the surfsand is the customer service which is why we returned and plan to return again soon. The employees make sure that you dont have to worry about a thing. Upon checking in they made our dinner reservations for us and got us some movies and popcorn for the evening. They even left some taffy and popcorn in our room for being return guests, it is nice to know they appreciate you returning. We ate dinner at the wayfarer which looks completely different than the last time we were there (remodeled) but the food was just as good! Great seafood! We can't wait to go back, hopefully for a longer weekend!

We are lucky to have such a great restaurant with fresh seafood. Chef Will is excited about the fresh Columbia River springer salmon coming in now. The boats bringing in the crab can be seen out in the ocean while dining. Thank you for coming back to the Surfsand Resort.

On a quick, mid-week, last-minute get-a-way, we booked one of the beach front king suites and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was well-appointed with the most comfortable mattress (tempur-pedic!) I have every experienced; lovely art by a local artist; TVs in the living room, bedroom, and bathroom; and a soaking tub with soji screen that opens to the ocean. The hotel does all the little things that really make you feel welcome, including hand-delivering movies and microwave popcorn just a few minutes after we requested Goonies (natch, since the room looks out to Haystack Rock). Best part is that, even though it's a beautiful room and well taken care of, they still accept dogs. Our 100+ lb shepherd/rottie and our English Bulldog had a terrific time on the beach and much appreciated the doggie-extras they provided. For once, we could take them on a vacation with only a couple of toys and extra food: treats, beds, dishes, towels were all provided for the pups. We'll be back, without a doubt!

I'll let the crew at the Surfsand know that the little things they do to make your stay special are working. They really have the hospitality heart. The doggies make for a really fun experience for us also. Thanks for being a great guest of ours.

Had a suite on the fourth floor with a wonderful view. Great bed, sitting area was comfortable, two fireplaces one in bedroom, one in front room - refrigerator and microwave. Daily newspaper delivered to door, this makes husband happy! We watched storms, then movies, took naps and walked on the beach. The Wayfarer restaurant next door is remodeled- ate there three times- was superb! You can't go wrong here - right now the best place in Cannon Beach.

We stayed here five years ago and since have used other Hotels along North Oregon Coast. Really pleased to return. They had remodeled awhile ago and we found the room, facilities and staff all outstanding. Beachfront view, dog room (very clean), tempurpedic mattress, walk in shower, great pool, I could go on and on. Next to a 4 star hotel we recently stayed at in Cabo, this was one of the nicest leasure hotels we've visited.

My husband and I just recently visited Cannon Beach for our first anniversary. We have a small dog and couldn't find a nice hotel that took dogs for a reasonal price. We are very picky on where we stay but we have finally found our home away from home at Surfsand Resort! This place is amazing! The staff is super friendly, they were all excited to meet and greet our French Bulldog and they even left a bottle of champagne and taffy with a nice note on the table for us to help celebrate our special occasion. The room was warm and inviting; they leave the music on low and the fireplace on so you are greeted with a cozy environment. The room was clean, the bed was tempurpedic so it was nice and the amenities were perfect. There was a huge bathroom with a large tub and a view of the ocean. It also had a nice shower with perfect water pressure. I can't say enough about this place. They gave us a doggy basket that had a bed, treats, doggie bags, bowls and towels. They really know how to do it right and I will never stay anywhere else in Cannon Beach! Stay here, you will not regret it.
