“Excellent value/unbeatable location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Sunset Surf Motel is located right across the street from the ocean in Manzanita. The motel provides an excellent value in a clean facility, with great views and a friendly/responsive staff. Some rooms provide a gas fireplace and kitchen facilities. All in all a great location for an ocean visit.

Sunset Surf Motel is right on the beach, easy access for walks, enjoying the surf, sand and sunset. The motel has comfortable and affordable suites with views of the ocean. It may be the season, but crowds in the town and on the beach were not a problem. This spot may not be first on your radar screen, you will be pleasantly surprised if you chck it out

Room Tip: Try for the ocean view. Both the sight and sounds are enjoyable

Manzanita is a great small town on the coast. The Sunset Surf Motel faces the ocean and one just has to cross Ocean Road (which had very little traffic when we were there) to get onto the beach. The rooms and bedding were clean. We had a room with a kitchen and it had plenty of clean dishes plus a coffee pot with two packs of coffee and Coffee-Mate (though we preferred a walk around the corner to get some tasty coffee to bring back to the room). From both the first floor and second floor, one can see the ocean from one's rooms.

Room Tip: Each room has different features, so call and check with the staff if you want a fireplace (they ha...

The upstairs king-bed room in the original building was spacious, clean, quiet, newly updated, and had a spectacular180 degree wraparound view of the ocean from the south and around to Neahkahnie Mountain to the north. At night, from our room, we observed small bonfires dotting the beach. The sound of the crashing surf lulled us to sleep. The motel is convenient for walks on the beach directly in front, walks to the shops of Manzanita just a few blocks away, or walks among the varied and interesting beach-village homes in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Our stay was very relaxing.

My husband and I were in town on business and booked a room online. We ended up extending our stay to two nights. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, there was a fireplace, and they have a great heated outdoor pool. Our room had a view of the ocean, and a quick walk across the street and you're on the beach! We would definitely stay there again and will recommend this motel to our friends.

An older motel, but remodeled bathroom is nice. Kitchen well kept. And it's clean. You cannot beat the view! Waking up in bed in room 27 over the office makes you feel like you are right on the beach. Nice sitting area and small table. Good space. I would go back. Nice to have free wifi.

Once again, we enjoyed the stay. Memorial Day weekend was busier than the week after but noise is not a factor in the Budd Building. I appreciate that the facility has some rooms that are pet friendly -- best advice is to book those as soon as you have your dates. The rooms are clean for the most part -- baseboard areas could be vacuumed more often. Upgrades to other areas of the facility look very nice, we look forward to the upgrades to the Budd Building. We hope there will be bistro height table and chairs to be able to see over the porch railing. Metal artwork would be nice over the fireplace and would not fade with the afternoon sun hitting it. The staff from the receptionist to the cleaning staff are always very friendly and accommodating
