Sunset Surf Motel
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Manzanita
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 27, 2014

I made a last minute decision to stay in Manzanita for a night and Sunset Surf was the only one with an available room. The ocean view is great (I recommend the second floor) but this is most definitely a motel. It's old and a bit noisy. There were people constantly walking back and forth in front of my room and I could hear my neighbors talking and snoring. The room is nothing fancy, it's aged and outdated but it works just fine. You really can't beat the view though and for a night or two on a budget, this motel works just fine.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have a better view.

We stay at the coast a couple of times a yr. We used to stay in Cannon-beach but have recently been staying in Manzanita. Love that everything is close, no need to drive. Sunset Surf is oceanfront, allows pets and has excellent access to beach. The beds are very comfortable, gas fireplace makes room cozy,especially if weather is stormy. We will keep coming back.

we planned on staying for two nights but because we were enjoying it so much we decided to stay an extra night. We were in the 'original' building but even though it an older building the management has done a very good job of maintaining and updating the rooms. Good location right on the beach. Quiet, comfortable in a quaint little town.

We stayed recently for two nights. Being the offseason and midweek, there were only a couple of other rooms rented, so it was really quiet. We were able to bring our dogs with us, for a small extra charge. The stairs were a little difficult for our old dog to negotiate, next time we will have to get a bottom level room. The place was super clean, really a great value for a no frills room. Ocean view for less than $100 a night, yes please! There's even a great pub within walking distance, with excellent tap selection. Many great sites within driving distance, like Short Sands beach and Hug Point. The best beach on the Oregon Coast is a short walk across the street. 7 miles of beach from Neakahnie Mountain to the mouth of the Nehalem river. We used to stay at this motel 20+ years ago when I was a little kid, and it's exactly how I remembered it. We would stay here again, most definitely!

Great service. Awesome view and a short walk from everything.
Definitely will be back. The room was clean. The view awesome. The remodeling job an A+ job. The owners have really out some money into this place to make it top notch.

We had a great time at the Sunset Surf Motel, not only was the room clean and well appointed, there was a kitchen and ocean view. Manzanita is a really cute town and not far from Cannon Beach. If you are looking for a good rate I would definitely recommend this. We were traveling in the off-season so we got out Junior Suite (One bedroom) for only $62 dollars a night!

Best value right on the beach, balcony , dog friendly rooms, tubs, full kitchen, fireplace, comfy beds, stayed in a March and even in the rain was awesome to walk the sands of Manzanita! Kitchen well stocked, they give you plenty of fluffy white towels, can't think of a negative thing to say! Quiet in the Budd building upstairs!
