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.

The room was clean and quite serviceable. The beach is across the road and offers a huge expanse to walk. The deck is shared by all the rooms (5-6) on the floor, but that's okay since everyone is not out there at the same time. My only concern was the sliding glass door which is the entrance to the room...

Cannot beat the location to the best beach on N Oregon Coast. Well maintained, clean, nice people. A weekend in the summer will always be noisier than a weekday. Great access to the beach, found 42 sand dollars in 20 minutes, but you need to go early.

The location is wonderful. Right across the road from the beach and walkable to all the shops/restaurants in town. Unfortunately, our room was very dirty and there were sugar ants all over the fireplace tile (which would then crawl up on the table). The corners of the room definitely had not been vacuumed in a long while. Don't even think...

Perfect view of the Pacific. The motel is just what you need and nothing else. Kitchen has all the basics, the bed and bathroom are quite serviceable. Use the pool. Watch the sun set. Sleep with the ocean waves putting you to sleep. Bring a good book, some sandals to track on the beach, and watch the world go by....
