Sunset Surf was reasonable, clean and right across the road from beautiful Neahkahnie Beach. We had a room with a sofa so it felt a bit more like home. Manzanita has a lot to offer...cute shops and great restaurants for small town. It was easy to walk all over town and the beach is miles long. Windsurfers and kite surfers were fun to watch and the sand is clean and squeaks.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have the best ocean views, but it is nice to be on the lower floor to be able to...

This property is in a wonderful location. You cannot beat having the ocean right across the street and the quaint village just up the road within walking distance with every amenity. The pool is a dream. It is extremely well cared for and gives you the illusion of floating into the ocean...it's that close!
The kitchen in our suite was well stocked and easy to use. That helped save on expenses.Everything is clean and well cared for. The staff are extraordinarily kind and obliging. I can't wait to have grandchildren so that I can bring them here for holidays!!!

We stayed in the remodeled Ashley building & it was decent and clean (& not smoky smelling.) The tub, toilet & sink looked like they hadn't been part of the remodel and our toilet had problems flushing (had to call the repairman twice, but he came quickly & fixed the problem after the second try.) We were right by the pool on the main floor, so no privacy to speak of when the curtains were open, but I didn't really care, because I could look out & see the ocean. I do think some sheer curtains under the blackout curtains would be a good idea, to at least give you some sense of privacy without losing all light. The kitchenette was well-stocked, clean & functional. The back window looked out onto buildings, but with trees around them. The pool was not super warm, but we got used to it & it was clean. The pool opened at 10 AM, but the maintenance guy was still cleaning (hosing down the concrete & the lounge chairs) by well after that time. The frost staff were all very nice and helpful. They even sell firewood for beach fires.

Room Tip: Top floor is probably nicer, but we still had a good view.

We were very happy to be so close to the beach which was just a quick trip across the lawn and then down the dunes. The room set up was good and the kitchenette just right for our needs and everything was clean. The personnel were pleasant.

Having never been to Manzanita we were pleasantly surprised by the ease of getting around...everything we needed was within walking distance. There are some cute shops and some enjoyable restaurants along with a decent grocery store.

We plan to return in the future.

Our first trip to Manzanita--great place for getting beach and pool access with kids and looking out at the beach and sunset. The room is Motel 6 ish, but has a great size fridge and meets needs of fixing lunches and breakfast. Only issue is shared balcony walkway along rooms, no smoking in rooms sends smokers to the walkway and with windows or sliding glass door you end up smoking too! Cute little town, family friendly. We'd go back. Just know you are paying for the location, not the room.

This motel has an amazing location. The motel is basic but, has everything you would need. Its very handy to have a kitchenette. Nice onsite parking. Easy to access the beach and walk to town. Having a pool was a bonus!

We love this place. We have stayed there many times in winter. We love the view and fireplace. This was our first summer stay and it was great! The pool was nice and warm, ... unusual! Even tho some people complain about the decor, it is clean and functional. Besides you go there for the beach!

We have brought friends and relatives both to this motel. All were pleased. We warned them that this isn't fancy, but it has all you need!

Room Tip: The new building is fresher, but more expensive.
