Reviewed July 27, 2008

We booked the suite in March (best to book early in Cannon Beach for the summer.) The staff are very helpful and friendly. We had four adults and one teenager in the suite--which was beautiful. Teen and twenty-something very impressed with the 3 t.v.'s--2 were large screens, one was in the bathroom, with the large tub and gorgeous walk-in shower with two heads. It was a great bathroom, but busy with so many people to share it. We had a great balcony with view of Haystack rock. Pet friendly, with treats for dogs upon arrival. Beds were fantastic, as were the linens. Just a short short jaunt to the beach. Nice gas fireplace when it was chilly one day. I'd go back right now, if I could!

We had a few problems with our reservation but it was quickly resolved. We thought it was a great place to stay with perfect location in mid-Cannon Beach and amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and Haystack Rock.
The rooms are beautiful with the latest electronics and nicely decorated although they are small for a family of four.
Fantastic pool and spa area but it could have been a little warmer in the main pool area.
A small factor, but still inconvenient, there is no guest laundry available.
Note: Make sure you like Tempur Pedic mattresses.

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights at Cannon Beach with 2 children - ages 10 & 18. We had a beachfront room on the 4th floor and a fabulous view (only drawback of 4th floor is railing is solid so it's hard to sit and enjoy the view). The hotel staff was wonderful and warm chocolate chip cookies, milk, coffee, hot cocoa & apples offered in the lobby every afternoon. Upon checkin, our youngest got a beach bucket and got to choose her favorite game & snack, which was delivered to the room the first night. Rooms are very nice; very attractive decor. Location can't be beat - walk right out onto the beach. Weather could have been better so we could have enjoyed more of the cabana service although we did have a beach bonfire one night, which the hotel set up and the young fellow who did it was very accommodating. Pool & hot tub were wonderful - pool was actually temperate & comfortable. Overall, this was a superb place and I did look at a few others in Cannon Beach, but most of comparable price were either not on the beach or were further from town. I feel like I got the best place in town!

We love hearing that you and your family had a fantastic time with us at the Surfsand. Wish the weather was better, but it’s great that you took advantage of the pool, the view, and a bonfire. We hope you stay with us again.

I decided to book the Surfsand Resort for a first trip to Cannon beach for me and my bf at the end of May. Although it was pricey ($179/night), I wanted our first visit to be memorable and the hotel is right on the beach.

The people at the front desk are extremely friendly and welcoming. There were fresh baked cookies (didn't try them though) and milk in the lobby. I booked the eye level King guestroom which was supposed to be on the first floor, but the guy at the front desk told us our room was on the third floor but didn't bother to say anything about it. We got to our room and I guess he had upgraded us to a 1 bedroom King Suite with balcony! There was a soaking tub in the bathroom with the Shoji screen which if you opened it all the way, you could see the view of the beach while soaking in the tub. We had 3 TV's (one in living room, bathroom and the bedroom), mini fridge, microwave, utensils, dishes and even a wine cork!

Unfortunately, we did not have a view of Haystack Rock since we were put in the far left room and the small hotel next to us was pretty much blocking our view. But I can't complain when we were upgraded to a nicer room which would have cost us $289/night. The view of the Pacific Ocean was amazing. It was somewhat sunny the first day we were there but the rest of the weekend was pretty cloudy but still a beautiful and peaceful sight. It was so nice to sit on the balcony and hear the ocean waves!

Surfsand Resort is supposed to be pet friendly. I didn't hear any dogs barking though which was great. We had people upstairs and I assumed they had a child that ran around sometimes but it was only for a few minutes and happened only twice. They have an indoor pool and fitness center but didn't get a chance to use them. The pool area is supposed to be 18 and over after 9 or 10pm until midnight. They also have a free ice cream social on Saturday afternoons and also have free movies you can rent out now.They have the Temperpedic bed but I didn't like it very much because it was on the hard side. I'm used to soft mattresses..

I would definately recommend the Surfsand Resort to everyone!!

We tried to stay here last weekend. My wife made the reservation by phone several days before. When we tried to check in, we were told our reservation was for the NEXT night. There is really no way of knowing whose mistake it was, but the property's general manager quickly came to meet us and accepted full responsibility. The staff immediately worked the phones and found a room in town on a VERY busy evening. The room they found was exceptional, with an ocean view. Then the amazing thing: the staff member pulled out the corporate credit card and paid for the new room! I have never been so pleasantly stunned by incredible customer service. They took what could have been a weekend-ruining experience and turned it into a fantastic boost. I can't say enough about how well we were treated. The lobby is modern and beautiful, and the fresh cookies were delicious. I can't tell you anything about staying in the hotel, but I can tell you where we will be booking our next Cannon Beach reservation. Thank you Surfsand!

So sorry about the mix up, but we’re glad your stay in Cannon Beach turned out well. We love to make our customers happy and we would enjoy having you back for another get-away with us. Hopefully next time you’ll see more than the lobby and take advantage of our modern rooms and many services we provide.

I want to start the review by saying that the staff was excellent. We were welcomed warmly and professionally. The room itself is modern and fresh. That was the good.

The curtain rod that was holding the deck door curtain was held on with one screw and came off when we opened that door the first time. That was repaired the next day and that was the only problem we had like that. The layout and use of space, especially in the bathroom is very poor. The bathroom is huge, but has one small sink and NO storage or shelves. There is no closet or hooks for hanging wet coats as you come in from outside.

While the room was modern looking, it was also the noisiest room we have ever stayed in. You can hear water, toilets flushing and the 3rd floor party with running going on until the wee hours.
Our conclusion is that they spent money on the remodel for "things" like flat screens and a tempur-pedic bed( that was very hard) and forgot to spend anything on sound proofing.

We never received our popcorn that was to be part of the package we purchased but that was not a big deal. The food at the nearby Wayfarer is overpriced and mediocre, as is the service. There is no complimentary breakfast of any type offered. Cookies were offered when we first arrived but were never out again.

In conclusion, I would not recommend this resort unless you are sure you stay on the top floor. I have spent less and received much more in many places. It was all rather disappointing considering it was our 26th anniversary and the staff that was so welcoming on arrival , NEVER asked how our stay was when we checked out.
