This is an older beach front motel. For the location, and the size of the room, the value can't be beat. The room was clean and comfortable. The view was outstanding! If you are a person with disabilities there are no elevators. This makes it a bit difficult to get luggage upstairs to the room. My fault, I should have...

If you don't need something fancy and are going for location this is your place. We like the small kitchen and able to see the waves from our bed. Nice and quiet with a friendly staff. Keep up the good work.

You know you've got a great ocean view and you are right across the street from the beach. But do you know how nice the staff are at Sunset Surf Motel? They always greet you with a smile. When the refrigerator wasn't working they fixed it. When I left an item behind, they kept it in their lost and found...

Clean, lovely motel located literally across the road from the beach and with easy access to charming downtown Manzanita which is full of good places to eat and shop. It's easy to watch the amazing sunsets right from your room (if it's chilly) or simply walk across the road to take it all in. Once on the beach you can...

We had never stayed in Manzanita before this trip. I did some research for a place to stay that allowed dogs. And found this little gem. We were on the bottom floor of the Budd Building just down the street from the main hotel. Big sliding doors right across from the beach. I could sit on the bed and watch...

We booked only one night but a week later decided to stay longer. We had to move to a downstairs room after the first day, but we actually liked it better. This is a quaint little motel right across from the beach. Easy beach access. Staff were cordial. We enjoyed our stay. We love Manzanita and will return to this...

I had a good experience here years ago, but haven't been back for a while because I keep forgetting how busy they get during 'high season' summer. Heading out to the coast for a night recently, I considered AirBnB but figured I'd give TheSunsetSurf one more try. Glad I did, as the rates are great, and I'd forgotten just how...

We really enjoyed our comfortable and affordable beach view at Sunset Surf in Manzanita! Perfect for a quick or long walks on the beach and close to quaint little shops. Enjoyed Bread and Ocean coffee and pastries every morning! The candy shop has delicious hand made chocolates too!

Perfect location, on the beach in this out of the way community. Short walk to stores, restaurants and shops or the beach, right across the street. All the services you need, quiet, clean lodging without the crowded tourist trap messes of Seaside and Cannon Beach. Our room was clean and cozy. Nothing fancy, yet comfy.

Photos online look very nice, but it is older than it looks. Location is great though--right on the beach. It looked as if our door had been previously broken into, so the deadbolt had nothing to hold onto. Fortunately, the doorknob had a turn lock, so at least we had something.
