“Loved every minute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I came with my boyfriend who has lived in the desert his entire life, had only seen the ocean once when he was a little kid. We loved it! The room was clean and had everything we needed. We rented a unit with a kitchenette which worked out perfectly. We shopped at The Manzanita Grocery & Deli a few blocks up which had everything we needed and then some! That little shop is awesome! We took a long walk on the beach which was clean and gorgeous. We loved looking at Mt. Neahkanie while we had our morning coffee. Our little dog came along and she loved it as well...running on the beach and then napping by the fireplace. We planned on staying two nights but added another night because we were enjoying our time so much! PLEASE take the time to do the Three Capes Scenic route that veers off from 101 from Tillamook! Stop in Oceanside! There is a little doorway in the cliffside that leads to a tunnel to the other side of the beach where there are awesome views of sea stacks not visible from the beach. It was like being on another planet! So beautiful! Also be careful of speed limits going through the little towns like Nehalem, Wheeler and Garibaldi- we got a speeding ticket. :( Manzanita is close to all of these destinations and more! Will definitely be back to explore Oswald State Park and all the other places we didn't have time to visit! Thanks, Sunset Surf!

Room Tip: We had a first floor room which was great - little bit of noise from upstairs, especially when they...

Clean, spacious room. Comfortable bed. Extra pillows and blanket in room closet. Kitchen equipped with range, fridge, coffee maker, coffee, microwave and utensils. Clean bathroom with shower/tub combination. More hooks for robes, towels etc would be a nice addition. Across the street from beach. Nice stop for combined business/getaway stay.

Perfect for a quick family get away. Rooms were really clean with the essentials coffee maker frig and cook top. Walked into town to pick up a pizza for dinner and front office had a good selection of movies. Great location and experience.

Stayed here for a weekend in January to get away from it all for a bit. We had wonderful weather, but we were excited to see a great selection of board games in the main office in case of rain! The room was freezing when we first came in, but it warmed up pretty quickly and stayed nice and toasty for the rest of the weekend. There was a great view, as the motel is literally across the road from Manzanita beach. It's also a short drive to Nehalem State Park, Neakahnie mountain trail and Canon Beach. The room was clean and room service was on top of it. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, too. We had a great experience, and would definitely recommend this stop to others who are looking for a relatively inexpensive beach getaway in a nice place right by the ocean.

We've been coming to this place for years and have never been dissapointed. They take dogs, it's right across the street from a very dog friendly beach, the price is right, the staff is very friendly - we will keep coming back for years to come. Thank you!!!!!

Stayed her for new years to get away from the city. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Online reservation, and check in were easy.

It's a cross the street from the beach, and right around the corner from town.

Great place to stay!!!
