Excellent experience with reservation, check-in and room amenities. Room with view and balcony opening to beautiful beach which was probably 10 steps from the motel. We only stayed one night with dog but kitchen complete enough for a longer family stay.

Our bed was comfy and the view was spectacular. That said, expect no amenities. The first night we signaled the maid, someone came in and pulled the covers up without re-making the bed. No coffee..had to go to the office for it. Office personnel were very nice. They had no shower caps, but did have coffee. The pool was full...

We went to the beach to celebrate a birthday and had a room overlooking the pool with a great view of the ocean. Clean, comfortable and the people were very nice. It was a short walk to the beach. We watched kite surfers from our balcony. highly recommend this if you like the sight and sound of the ocean. The...

Small, older unit but well kept and all needs meant. This was our third year to stay at Sunset Surf. This year we stayed in a unit without a complete kitchen but it did have a refrigerator, electric fry pan, toaster, coffee pot and microwave along with all the needed utensils. We were there for five meals and prepared them...

I went to paint and decompress and walk on the beach. On a previous trip camping at Nehalem Bay, I'd seen this little motel and looked up their prices online. They also take reservations online, which is very helpful. The reasonable prices surprised me. Nice clean rooms, a heated pool, well managed. I stayed in a smaller view room and...

We really enjoyed our visit and next time will stay longer. The location was fabulous and the staff were great. It was right at the beach and just around the corner from shops and restaurants. The heated swimming pool was a bonus.

My husband and I stayed here for one night before heading to Washington to visit family. The motel is in an amazing location, right across the street from the beach. Our room had a view of ocean, gas fireplace and small kitchenette. Sunset that night was beautiful. We had breakfast at Wanda's which was in the next town but well...

What a hidden gem! This hotel is the cheapest in Manzanita and has the best view - located across the street from the ocean - opened our window and listened to the waves! Although it was small, it was really clean, and even had a refrigerator and coffee maker. We checked out some wine glasses from the front desk and...

I hope that Manzanita stays like it is. We drove south through the other beach towns and I'm glad i researched this place. It is not a five star resort. But let me tell you why i gave it a high rating. 1. Location location location. Walking to all the restaurants in town. Right on the beach. 2. The beach....

Not your very modern, but oh so relaxing, clean motel. Very friendly staff, every time we visit, they've updated something else. Fantastic view of beach, full size appliances, wonderful beds. If you put "Do Not Disturb" sign on your door (even for 2 or 3 days), they comply & just leave clean towels outside your door.

“Most rooms have great views. Second floor views seem like they might be more unobstructed ocean views.”
