The hotel is located across from a beautiful beach. The accommodations are average, like many places on the coast. Stay at this hotel because of the town, location and walkability. On a side note, the water pressure in the shower was amazing...would go back for that alone. A great place for a family vacation. The price was great, too.

Great location in town and at the beach; within walking distance to everything. We had no problems with the property. We did not get a chance to use the pool, but it looked like others were having fun.

Not just best in Manzanita, but I can't imagine a better location on the entire Oregon Coast. Literally steps from a great beach and steps from a perfect beach town. Cannon Beach is getting too crowded and expensive, Seaside and Lincoln City too commercialized, Manzanita has a great beach, excellent shops and restaurants, available services, the works. The Sunset Surf...

A nice place to stay in a great little community. I have stayed in three different rooms so far, but all in the original building. There are two other buildings that are newer and probably nicer. The rooms are large and sparsely furnished. The linens OK. Service is good. The location is wonderful!

What a great find in Manzanita! The location of this motel is fantastic. You are right across the street from the ocean. The rooms have nice ocean views. We were on the bottom floor and still had a nice view. We would like to try one of the upper rooms next time. We loved being able to bring our dog...

The Sunset Surf Motel is a old style beach motel. The rooms are very nice with updated bathrooms and a good bed. We were very happy to find a room on short notice at a very fair price. Location is great just across from the beach & a short walk to shopping. Parking is tight in the summer so have...

This was our first visit to Manzanita and the Sunset Surf was about perfect for location, beach access, and service. It is clean and friendly, close to town for services. Pet friendly was a big plus! The only drawbacks we found were no vents or fans in the downstairs room in the south building and a very low toilet that...

It's an old location that has had some updates done. Generally in great condition and clean. The picture shown doesn't allude to the fact that it was taken from the beach. It really is that close. We were in one of the rooms in the separate building with suites. It's even closer.

We love the Oregon coast and this little place is great. Its not new or fancy, but the bed was clean and very comfortable, and the view and convenience to shops and restaurants was excellent. It is also very dog friendly. The location and the friendliness of the people will bring us back.
