As you can see from the other reviews even the higher star ratings indicate that this place is only reasonably clean. I agree. I've stayed several times and I've had to ask for pillowcases changed and stuff in the kitchen to be fixed. Now they only allow dogs on the bottom level. For a dog friendly tell town like Manzanita,...

This was a great find, and reasonably priced. The motel was very clean, and all the staff members I dealt with were really friendly, and helpful. The room was stocked with everything that could possibly be needed. The shower had the perfect water pressure, and stayed warm throughout. The tv could be angled to anywhere in the room, but I...

Pro: The room was quite large with a mini kitchen along one wall and big picture windows looking out at the beach. The bathroom was also large, with a separate little room for the toilet. Bed was comfortable. WiFi provided. Con: -The markings on the thermostat had no connection with reality. We kept turning it down and we were still...

THE most comfortable bed! More comfortable than home. Great staff. Clean Clean room. Can't beat the view. I can go on and on. Great having a full kitchen in the room. I always cook ahead instead of cooking in the room. But a full size stove did come in handy on one occasion. Enjoy your stay. We ALWAYS do.

This is definitely a good place to stay on a budget, but don't expect anything fancy. The ocean is directly across the street from the motel, and the unobstructed views were beautiful. The room we stayed in had a decent small kitchen, and a bed in the main room. There was another room with a bed as well. Wifi was...

I have stayed at this motel on 3 or 4 occasions while fishing near the coast. The Sunset Surf is clean, quiet and friendly. The room's amenities are great. A gas fireplace and small kitchenette. Perfect for a guy up early and back late from fishing. And, a GREAT VALUE directly across the street from the beach (not to mention...

Room was great, was surprised to have two rooms and not just two beds, had everything you need, was clean and stocked, the view was amazing. We enjoyed our stay. The Perfect spot for a weekend getaway to the coast.

We mistakenly left jackets and hats in the closet when we left. The motel was quick to put them in the mail to us the next day. We'll be back when the weather is more enjoyable. We enjoyed being close to town center and yet being right on the beach.
