Took my wife, father, and friend to see Yur Daddy play a show over the weekend. Stayed here for the convenience and it was great. Pet friendly and beautiful view of the beach. Fort he price we were all very impressed with the cleanliness and quality.

We just celebrated our anniversary with 2 nights at the Sunset Surf Motel....What a great stay we had...Our room looked out over the stormy ocean and the wind howled almost our whole stay... We were so cozy sitting in front of the warm gas fireplace...nibbling appetizers (love that little kitchen) and sipping wine....We drove to Cannon Beach for a dinner... More

During winters, the wind is blowing, tide is up, and the view is great. Pretty easy to get a good night's sleep here. I will admit that the building and furnishings are dated, but one has to consider that if both were modern, the price to stay would multiply instantly. It reminds me most of a 1960s semi-motorcourt motel, staff... More

We've stayed here once before and may again but it is at best an average motel. However in the off-season the rate allows us to have an ocean view and we do like that. The main building is old and though I know work is done to maintain it, it shows its age: the bed spread is brown, the adequate... More

We visited in April and will be returning in 2017. Staff is amazing and exceptionally helpful, and the rooms are small but perfectly adequate for a couple who is outdoorsy and will spend very little time in them. Comfy beds, perfect sized kitchenette, clean bathrooms, and a dining area. We loved it! Room service is great, even with all the... More

Clean, check-in and -out smooth, enjoyed the fireplaces in our 2 rooms; had a nice small kitchen; would recommend you bring flat-bottomed coffee filters if, like us, you bring your own ground coffee for the little coffee-maker (they provide packets of coffee in a filterpack). Enjoyed the view, bathroom was nice, bed comfy. Was stormy all night and we enjoyed... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in September. We were in the original building. The rooms were a good size, which was nice. But, nothing matched. Some of the beds are comfortable, some not. They did have kitchens in our rooms which was great. But in the second room there was no hot water in the kitchen.... More

This motel has a nice selection of rooms for starting in the low $70 dollar range and up. The beach is never crowed and there are good places to eat at right down the street and turn left and your on the small main street with plenty of choice's. We took a small room with a minor view of the... More

We booked a room with a fireplace and ocean view suite. When we checked in, we were given a room in a building that is separate from the main building and we got a 1 bedroom unit that also had a queen bed in the main room. The extra bedroom was a waste for us but there was nothing else... More

We prefer the corner building over the main motel. And lower level. Can walk right out onto beach. Good beds, linens, pillows. All the kitchen equipment one needs. We cooked 2 meals. Only thing lacking was a ceiling light that worked. Didn't care enough to even mention it. Cars do go by very close to front slider but didn't bother... More
