“great little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

This was our second stay at the Sunset Surf Motel. The rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. The ocean is right across a very quiet street. Just walk out of you patio door and there you are! It's a wonderful place if you're bringing your dog. Dog Paradise!! The town itself is so cute with little shops, restaurants, and cafe's. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing evening. Great find!

Room Tip: The Budd building is quieter with private patios/balconies.

We wanted a room for 4 with an ocean view and this was just what we wanted! We were on the 2nd floor of the Budd building. Perfect. The kitchette made it easy to eat in or out. This was not a luxury room, but it was a wonderful room with everything we needed. Good service: fixed a burned out light bulb right away. Fireplace, ocean view, kitchen, clean for a very reasonable price given the location. I will certainly stay there again!

My daughter and friends have stayed at SunSet Surf several times and we recently booked two rooms for an overnight. Super clean -- kitchen so well equipped for a holiday stay. Tremendous view/on the beach. What more could one wish for? My husband and I plan to stay for several days when we come from NE next summer. Thank you to the lovely receptionist too.

Room Tip: The website states quite clearly the extent of an ocean view.

Dated rooms but for the most part clean but you get what you pay for. Great location close to main street and right across from the beach with views from most rooms. Our room had big fridge, full kitchen and beds were comfy. Service was lacking! We would stay here again but think the summer rates would be over priced.

We've stayed a few times at the Sunset Surf Motel. It's location is fantastic - right across the street from the beach and I think almost all the rooms have an ocean view. It is an older motel, so the rooms are pretty "lived in" but they are clean and the beds are comfortable. And you can't beat the view! Manzanita is a great little town on the Oregon Coast with wide, walkable beaches and lots of great little shops and restaurants (all within walking distance of the motel). This is a very dog friendly Motel and town, so be prepared to be around lots of pooches and hear some barking as dogs get excited to meet new furry friends. We take our 2 dogs with us and they love the play on the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have a nice balcony/porch, but rooms on the first floor have a patio - eas...

This place is great. I was overwhelmingly impressed with the city Manzanita. If your looking for a place to escape, this is it. Our room was small but not crowded. Nice bed and decent sized bathroom. Small oven with 4 burner top and a small fridge. Enough utinsels in the room to accomplish almost any cooking need. Was so nice to go to the grocery store, within walking distance, pick up some nice meats and produce at market prices, I anticipated getting gouged. Cooked a nice meal and ate at the table with the fireplace on, looking out a glass wall overlooking the ocean. Fantastic! Great for couples or loners. Has a pool if you got kids. Wifi for free. Great little places for breakfast, lunch or dinner, again, very reasonably priced. Great little coffee shop there also, all within walking distance. Highly recommend this motel.
