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...

Sunset Surf is our Manzanita go to for it's killer location right on the ocean, pet friendliness and spacious rooms with kitchenettes. It's not fancy, but it's cozy casual and has just what you need for hanging at the beach.

I like Manzanita because it's smaller and more inexpensive than Cannon Beach and because it's not touristy like Seaside. It's quant like Cannon Beach but also less busy. Great bakeries and good restaurants. I like the Sunset Surf Motel because of the location, price and amenities. If you have small children I recommend a second floor suite in the Budd...

The location of this motel could not be better. It is right across the street from the beach. The area is quiet and the town is small but really nice and interesting, and very dog friendly. The motel is comfortable, very clean and dog friendly. Some rooms have kitchens, making it easy to prepare meals, a home away from home

My husband and I stayed here with our newborn for a mid week getaway. We stayed in room 28 in the original building which was described as having a "partial ocean view" but had decent views of the north and south parts of the coast. The building looks old from the outside but was the room was clean and comfy....

Stayed in #27 with the king size bed and it was very comfortable. And the view is beautiful. The only thing I would ask for is a better coffee pot the one in that room is terrible. Another thing is watch out when taking a shower especially if you have kids, the water goes from hot to cold and it...

Checked in for 2 nights on second floor of remote building. Room was nice, but bed was small (Double?). View was awesome and accessibility to shopping was good. Kitchen & fireplace were nice. Dog friendly beach was a plus for some. No breakfast, but coffee shops nearby. Or bring your own coffee and filters.

Even though the room was small it was nicely decorated, and had everything one would need in a hotel room. I had one thing that prevented me from giving this property a higher rating, and it was the condition of the mattress. It was uncomfortable and felt past it's prime. My Wife and I were tossing and turning all night...

We have been going to Sunset Surf for the past 5 years. Twice a year we take a trip to the beach. Once with the child and once just us adults. We have never been disappointed with the facilities. This time we brought our dogs and everyone in that building was considerate of other people. I hate to say this...

I love Manzanita and everything about it. I stay at the Sunset Surf because I have a beautiful view of the Ocean from my room and I can leave the door open and listen to the sounds. I get up early in the morning make my coffee and head to the beach where I take a long much needed walk...
