Excellent location and perfect view of Haystack Rock. Ask for a room on the third floor -- definitely NOT in the basement. We were in room 301 -- perfect with fireplace and great view. Only disadvantage was the the fireplace stayed very warm even after turning it off -- maybe need some air conditioning which normally wouldn't be needed since it's on the chilly side there. We had evening turn-down service (no charge) and got a handful of chocolate mints instead of the usual one each. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and neat.

Room Tip: Third floor for the best view.

This hotel knows how to wow you with the little touches. From the sliding door from the jacuzzi bath tub to the main room to freshly baked cookies in the lobby, Surfsand leaves no whole for improvement! The beds additionally were spectacular...and the sheets OH-SO-SOFT!

From the porch of the Ocean front rooms, you are able to walk right out to the beach. Or if the weather is poor, you can just hang fire-side from your room and watch the waves roll in in perfect comfort.

This is a hotel that you will not want to leave!

We’re thrilled to hear you had such a fabulous time staying with us! Next time you are with us enjoy our great amenities out on the beach; like a bonfire with s’mores! The sheets are from Jennifer Adams and are a great addition to our Resort!
Thank you,

This property is right on the beach and in front of Haystack Rock. It is very clean and upscale for a nice beachfront price point. There are lots of activities and additional perks for kids. They offer akid's club for eating and activities. Also great that the Wayfarer restaurant is just walking across the parking lot. The only downer is that they have requirements for a 3 night minimum stay. Don't rely on their website to make a reservation. Call them directly, and keep calling. They often have 1 or 2 night avail abilities that they can fill in between the 3 night reservations. We were able to get a one stay on a Friday for two rooms. Just keep trying.

Room Tip: Bring some of your own snacks/drinks from the grocery. Stores and restaurants close early in Cannon...

I loved this hotel! We were greeted and checked in promptly at the front desk and given all the information we needed to enjoy our stay at the hotel. We had a “partial ocean view room” that had a great view of Haystack Rock. The beach is so close and just absolutely stunning. The grounds have many beautiful flowers planted throughout and are well maintained. The room was very nice and provided all the modern comforts. We enjoyed the large screen TV and watched a movie on one of the channels. The front desk also has complimentary DVDs that you can check out. The bathroom was particularly luxurious with a large soaking tub, separate walk-in shower, and a TV with a remote control. The toilet has its own little room with a door. We stayed on a Sunday night and availed ourselves of the complimentary hot dog cookout they had down at the beach. Later we had them set up a private campfire with all the fixing for smores for $25. It was a very enjoyable evening on the beach. My only wish while staying here was that we stayed more than one night. I will definitely return and stay longer next time.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August. I really liked this hotel. It is centrally located for both the town and haystack rock. The hotel staff are lovely and the lobby, pool, and gym are great. The room was beautifully appointed with a dual-headed shower, fireplace, luxurious robes, and temperpedic mattress. We were in the beachside building in an eye-level room. We could see the beach, but it was literally at eye level, so the room was a bit dark and you could see people’s feet as they walked by. The hallways in that building were a bit rundown and very cold as well. They had a shuttle to take you around cannon beach, which was a nice perk. We took it to their sister hotel, Stephanie inn, for dinner so we wouldn’t have to worry about driving. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: splurge for beachfront

We appreciate your wonderful assessment of the resort’s amenities and staff. The room that you stayed is scheduled to get a renovation to sliding glass door with a sunken patio and steps up to a grass deck. The hallway will be getting an upgrade at the same time.
We will look forward to hosting you again soon,

This was our second visit to SurfSand and we were not disappointed. We made reservations late, so we had a 'partial ocean view' room that was just great. We looked over part of the parking lot and the beach entrance (great for people watching!), and had a striaght-on view of Haystack Rock.

The room was clean, and very comfortable. Spacious bathroom and lovely balcony.

Room Tip: The partial ocean view rooms, especially on the west end, are wonderful!

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our partial ocean views do have a great view of Haystack Rock and the beach. Thanks for your tip you are correct the higher up and the farther west your room is located the greater the view. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed one night in an ocean front room. We stayed in the lower level (basement) which we knew going in wasn't gonna be as great of a view, but still beach front. The drawl here is the location! They have free beach chairs, sand toys, and will set up a wind gaurd on the beach for you. Just a few steps away. They definitely excell at service, providing free movies to check out, nightly bon fires on the beach etc.

The room, however, was a mixed bag. The king bed was a Tempurpedic and the shower heads were very nice. But the floor seemed dirty and the tv remote looked like it had never had even a Lysol wipe ran over it.

This place is for sure a family spot, but if you're looking for more than just a place to sleep at night you may want to look elsewhere.
