Clean, basic room with kitchenette and a separate bedroom, good for family. Good location for beach. View of ocean, but windows exposed interior to other guests. Wifi was entirely unreliable or unavailable.

Great view, very clean and quiet, staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the newer building, second floor. There was a stove top, fridge and microwave as well as dishes and pots and pans for use.

Spent two nights last week. My wife and i on a quicky vacation. Very pleasant stay, very bad weather. the kitchenette was great for breakfasts and beverage storage in a decent sized fridge. Thought it would be noisy as it is a wood frame building, but all were behaving themselves. Manzanita is a great contrast to Canon Beach and Seaside,...

We stayed in the new wing of the motel. The room was large, clean, with a sink/microwave and small table. Literally steps from Manzanita's amazingly beautiful beach. Unfortunately the pool was not open (well, it was early March after all) but I suspect in summer the place is hopping.

We stayed only one night in room 103 -- right on the ocean. It was comfortable and quite even though we were on the street level. It worked out just fine, made dinner and breakfast in the kitchen and enjoyed the gas fireplace. Next time I'd confirm I was on the second floor, but the first one was fine! The...

Very nice clean rooms with a separate bedroom - can't beat the view - a bit older but doesn't feel that way - a perfect beach place - our room had a mini kitchen that was great and pets are allowed. I would stay there again for sure

Nice place to stay! Several of our friends stayed here with family and pets. Great beach access and close proximity to the main drag in Manzanita. We all had a great trip and would recommend this spot -- we'll come back this summer when the outdoor pool is open!!

Quiet, great rates, clean rooms with full ocean view! Staff was nice and we will return again. The room was basic, no frills. We had some issues with slow wifi, but overall a pleasant and satisfactory stay.

Decided to get out of Portland for one night. Sunset Surf Motel in Manzanita was a nice get away. Quaint little town. Our room was clean with a small kitchenette. The bed was comfortable. there was a gas fireplace in the room and it was wonderful. The view was the best. Sat by the fire and watched the ocean, so...

My husband and I stay here every January as a modestly priced treat. Would not stay anywhere else. A very nice place and right next to the beach. Beautiful sunset if lucky and storm clouds if less lucky.
