Very nice, well kept motel. The location could not be better. Staff is friendly and very helpful. We had a problem with a shower knob in the evening and it was fixed immediately. The rooms are clean and well equipped. It's not a "fancy" place, which works well for us. Been there twice, once with family (2 rooms) and once...

We love staying at Sunset Surf!! What a terrific view, super beach access, very comfortable bed, nice kitchenette, and plenty of space. Housekeeping is very efficient and helpful. Also nice to be so close to places to eat and shop, and have the beach right there too. Front desk people are great. We like that it is not a "foo-foo"...

I never expected an affordable motel to be so nice! The Sunset Surf is fantastic. We stayed in a great upper corner unit with huge windows overlooking the beach. The room was well-appointed, clean, large, and had soft sheets, and we really enjoyed the proximity to the beach, pool, and town. Such nice employees, too. A wonderful place for our...

This is a very simple place with a great location. If you're looking for an affordable place to stay at the beach that accepts dogs this should definitely be a place to consider, I know we'll be back!

Manzanita has Ocean Ave separating the hotels from the beach, and the Sunset Surf, right on a busy corner, is convenient to the beach and has excellent views. At times, however, we felt like we were in Santa Monica because of the congestion outside the room with pedestrians and motorists, and we were certainly in a fishbowl with glass on...

Excellent experience with reservation, check-in and room amenities. Room with view and balcony opening to beautiful beach which was probably 10 steps from the motel. We only stayed one night with dog but kitchen complete enough for a longer family stay.

Our bed was comfy and the view was spectacular. That said, expect no amenities. The first night we signaled the maid, someone came in and pulled the covers up without re-making the bed. No coffee..had to go to the office for it. Office personnel were very nice. They had no shower caps, but did have coffee. The pool was full...

We went to the beach to celebrate a birthday and had a room overlooking the pool with a great view of the ocean. Clean, comfortable and the people were very nice. It was a short walk to the beach. We watched kite surfers from our balcony. highly recommend this if you like the sight and sound of the ocean. The...

Small, older unit but well kept and all needs meant. This was our third year to stay at Sunset Surf. This year we stayed in a unit without a complete kitchen but it did have a refrigerator, electric fry pan, toaster, coffee pot and microwave along with all the needed utensils. We were there for five meals and prepared them...
