Surfside Resort
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Rockaway Beach

Reviewed November 7, 2013

Just what we needed before the holidays. After losing one of our dogs in July we decided we could not travel without the other 2 dogs for our annual fall trip. So we booked our trip to the Oregon Coast. One stop in Lincoln City and another at the Surfside Resort in Rockaway Beach.
Life being unpredictable and full of surprises, another puppy came into our lives that we could not turn our backs on. Afraid we might have to cancel our trip because of the 2 dog policy, I figured it wouldn't hurt to call and ask. The hotel in Lincoln City said "No way." I called Surfside Resort and they welcomed us with open arms. They were very understanding. We were even able to move our trip up and extend our stay.
We decided to stay in room 102A. On the end and bottom floor. Already having one flight of stairs. into the room we figured this would be easier to get the dogs in and out as needed. The room is simple, a one bedroom with kitchenette, full bath, extra bed in living area and a closed off balcony with breathtaking views. You didn't miss a beat with the views from our room. It was almost like eating our every meal right on the beach. Wi-Fi and flat-screen TV with cable and dvd player.
Access to the beach is just steps away. Around the side of the building and down a small set of stairs and then you have miles of beach to walk and enjoy.
We had beautiful fall weather during our stay. Perfect for wearing out the dogs. There were many times we were the only ones in sight on the beach.
We truly enjoyed our stay. We are hoping to return again in the spring and have invited our parents and their dogs to come along.

The hotel is in a nice location right on the ocean front. The room is spacious, but could use remodel update. The views from the balcony were worth the stay. good value for location. The stay was only 2 days but great location to travel the coast and see the sights and towns nearby.

I usually choose Rockaway Beach on the Oregon coast because it is away from the more crowded areas at the coast. I generally go out there on weekdays and not during peak season. The Surfside Resort is my favorite place to stay as it's quiet (although they were working on windows while I was there, but I didn't hear it that much), the beach is just a few steps away from the door, and there is plenty of beach for walking. I can walk for 45 minutes to an hour, north or south, and never run out of beach.
You can leave your sliding door open to hear the ocean, unlike some places. When I do get a dog again, they are also pet friendly and I look forward to taking my next dog out there.
Although some furnishings are a little rough and outdated, it's still very comfortable, for the price. I also like having the kitchen area so I can prepare my own meals, although there are some decent restaurants close by.

Room Tip: I prefer the 2nd floor, and a corner unit on the oceanfront rooms.

The room was reasonably priced,and clean, even smelled clean. We enjoyed the corner room, with lots of sunshine. It was quiet at night, even with Highway 101 not too far away. It was handy having a refrigerator and microwave, and stove. Was surprised at the strong chlorine smell of the water, but maybe that's a safety issue with the town. Bottled water machine is nearby the rooms.
Friendly and helpful staff. The beach is very close, easily reached by steps , with a handrail. Would need to know more about the places to eat, probably about a mile from this motel. In all it was a worthwhile place to stay.

Loved this little spot on the Pacific. Spacious room with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, dining room, and living room. We also had a fireplace and balcony that we made very good use of. We were travelling as a couple and only stayed the night, however this would be an ideal place to spend a week with family. There is great beach access and an indoor pool. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The room was spotless and stocked with everything you could need, and the price couldn't be beat. Trust me, I looked. I couldn't be happier with this choice.

We stayed for 2 nights with our dog which was one of the reasons we picked the place. You are right on the beach with a fantastic view. The beach goes on forever, the dog was really enjoying being able to run. We walked into town on the beach, since not in the heart of town and there are enough restaurants to chose from plus all the beach shops. Certainly not like Cannon Beach but we wanted a quieter, less hectic, scene with an expansive beach, for us and the dog and Rockaway has that. We would definitely go back, so would our dog.

This is a very nice place to stay with family or friends and the view is spectacular! You practically have a private beach to yourself and it has easy access. The staff is very accommodating, the rooms are clean and fresh and has what you need to be comfortable. We found the best little restaurant ever called "The Whale Spout" nearby, where we enjoyed real homemade food that was perfect. We don't come to Rockaway very often, but the Surfside Resort is definitely a good choice to stay at and relax and unwind.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first level which gave us a perfect view of sand and surf. It was quiet, not c...
