I would rate this place only one notch above cheap and dirty. The swimming pool was covered by a tarp with dirty sitting water on top of it, so definitely NOT usable. It was quite hot and there was no air conditioning or fan in the room. Only one window opened so it was really hot and uncomfortable. It was...

Thank you for your feedback of your stay with us, and I would like to apologize that you found your stay disappointing. Unfortunately, the seasonal outdoor pool was closed during the time of your stay (opens in mid June) and we cover the pool area with a tarp to keep out debris from the ocean and nearby plants, which tends...

No windows to leave open. We were on the 1st floor, corner, so had to close the sliding doors @ bedtime: no ocean sounds, no soft breezes. The desk clerk was very nice, maintenance came & replaced the broken lamp, & the room was very clean. Room seemed newly painted, bathroom & kitchen good. Wooden doors & locks had chiseled...

Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. As you stated, our windows are not able to open and allow the cool ocean breeze into the rooms. We want you to know we are taking steps to remedy this issue. Currently, we are installing windows, with screens, into our original building rooms so our guests can...

My friend & I traveled to Manzanita for a weekend to celebrate both birthdays! The room I booked for the 1st nite wasn't what we had hoped for! No ocean view, 1 bed, fairly dingy room!! For our second nite we asked the front desk if they had another room available so we could possibly switch. We were given a...

Had a great weekend at the Sunset Surf with our puppy. The town is small, friendly, very picturesque and very dog-friendly. The Sunset Surf was clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, and offered excellent access to the beach. We stayed in room 121 in the oldest building. No frills, and our ocean view was partially obscured by steps to the second floor...

This is an outstanding little motel. Magnificent beach views. It is simple, clean and well cared for. There is a little kitchenette that is well equipped. We walked everywhere from here. Expect a great location with close proximity to everything.

Sure, the rooms are outdated but this quaint motel has everything the Oregon coast traveler needs, the balconies are wonderful, games in the office, fireplaces in the rooms and a hop across street to best ice cream shop and of course, sand is just a few feet away. We've been coming to Sunset Surf for 30 years and just love...

Our stay was very short- less than 18 hrs. I would definitely stay again when I just want the good basics on the beach. Manzanita is a very special coastal community! You can pretty much walk anywhere and it would be good for bikes too since there's a large park nearby. There's a golf course within walking of the motel....

I made a last minute decision to stay in Manzanita for a night and Sunset Surf was the only one with an available room. The ocean view is great (I recommend the second floor) but this is most definitely a motel. It's old and a bit noisy. There were people constantly walking back and forth in front of my room...

We stay at the coast a couple of times a yr. We used to stay in Cannon-beach but have recently been staying in Manzanita. Love that everything is close, no need to drive. Sunset Surf is oceanfront, allows pets and has excellent access to beach. The beds are very comfortable, gas fireplace makes room cozy,especially if weather is stormy. We...

we planned on staying for two nights but because we were enjoying it so much we decided to stay an extra night. We were in the 'original' building but even though it an older building the management has done a very good job of maintaining and updating the rooms. Good location right on the beach. Quiet, comfortable in a quaint...
