Not your very modern, but oh so relaxing, clean motel. Very friendly staff, every time we visit, they've updated something else. Fantastic view of beach, full size appliances, wonderful beds. If you put "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door (even for 2 or 3 days), they comply & just leave clean towels outside your door.

Excellent room..it was like a condo but it was on the cheap. Nice little town, great customer service, and a spectacular view of the water from the living room. I'll definitely make a return visit here at Sunset Surf but next time I'll book in advance for 3 or 4 days as this place fills up quickly.

I like the sleepy town of Manzanita. The dog-friedly beach is great. The Sunset Surf Motel is a good place to stay -- you get a great view without much obstruction. In the family suite, the bathroom was updated, but the kitchen (esp the stove) was outdated. The beds were super comfy. Any problems we had (that stove!) were fixed...

Awesome location right on the beach, and affordable when the the other more popular towns were booked up and expensive. It is centrally located close to Cannon beach and Tillamook Cheese factory. We stayed in the junior suite and they had a good sized refrigerator/freezer, microwave, sink, toaster oven, skillet, and dishes. Very cozy and cute, at the right price....

Beautiful view from our room. We booked a junior sweet, plenty of room , the bathroom was a bit small. I have been here once before and I absolutely love it! The town had good shopping, good restaurants and we love the San Dune Pub.

Friendly staff. Clean room. Maids did outstanding job right down to doing our dishes. Definitely will be back. The view was fabulous being so clise to the ocean. The town itself was very unique and friendly. Good food at the Bunk House and the Big Wave.

Been staying here for more than a decade. It's always been a bit rough around the edges -- it is super dog friendly, so that's understandable -- but always warm and friendly with the most amazing views, and most importantly, clean. I totally love this place. We spend birthdays, New Year's and any other excuse to get out of town...

I enjoyed my stay at Sunset Surf Motel for the first time. Both Beverly and Melissa in the office made us feel welcome. The room was pleasant and had a small convenient kitchenette with refrigerator. Very nice and clean. The WARM and very clean pool was a delight for my granddaughter and her Dad. We will certainly come back again...

I've had numerous stays here over the last 10 years. Management has changed over time and rooms have been updated. The location and views can't be beat. Rooms are cleaner than ever before. Beds are comfortable. Wifi has always been spotty due to location. Local eateries are good. The little grocery is well appointed for wine and deli treats. The...

The hotel is definitely older, but it's location makes it all worth it. The ocean front view is amazing. The balcony is shared by other rooms, so there is constant traffic of people walking past your room to get to their rooms. It really wasn't that bothersome, the people were all friendly and fun. The room has a great little...
