Very nice and clean "mom and pop" style hotel I love. Back your car up to your hotel room. Bicycles are available for rental. We had laundry to do and they let us use their machines used for housekeeping. Great Hotel, clean, friendly staff and I would recommend dinner at the Pelican Brewery a couple miles up the road or...

This little motel on the Oregon coast is adorable. While the rooms are small, they have all the amenities we needed: wifi, microwave, fridge, TV, a good shower and nice linens. The hanging flower baskets all around the courtyard are beautiful and the staff was great. The price is right and the location is perfect -- not on the beach,...

Five women stopped here on the way from the coast to Crater Lake and were very pleased with the accommodations. There were 2 queen beds in the room and we were given a roll away that was very comfortable. The room was very clean and the owner friendly and helpful in giving ideas of places to eat. I would definitely...

Nothing fancy, but the new owners are really working hard to add nice touches to this little place. Very comfortable bed, with pretty quilt and accent pillows. Bath towels were nicer than in many expensive hotels. Front desk folks were very friendly. Location was great. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Surf & Sand this past weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were just the right size for two and was very clean and inviting. Justin, who helps at the front desk was super nice as well as the owner who was kind enough to call and let me know that we left something behind...

This is a great place for the budget conscious travelers. The room was clean, quiet and easily accessible. This is an old style motor hotel newly acquired by a young couple who are really trying to upgrade the property. Unfortunately, they have not yet upgraded the lumpy beds which caused both my wife and I to have backaches the next...

After travelling highway 101 a few years ago we decided to take as many quiet coastal roads as we could. Hoping to find that "one place". We found it in the Sand and Surf. Not on the beach but wow super nice amazing couple have turned this historic coast guard bunkhouse into a true gem. Super clean. Super quiet. We...

Small (15 rooms), older property directly on the highway leading into town. Steps away from several restaurants. Highly recommend _Grateful Bread Bakery_, less than 1/4 mile up the street. Serves dinner from Wed - Sun night. Clean rooms, comfortable beds. Refrigerator & microwave in room. Only one downside found. The chair to the desk in the Single Queen room I...

Went there last week end with wife and kids. Perfect location, very nice staff and very clean rooms. The new owners are doing a great job in upgrading the rooms (nice curtains and bedspreads etc.). This will definitely my first choice for our next week end on the Coast !!!

A very nice, refurbished, clean room. Adequate for our overnight stay, with everything that we would need or want. A hug TV, a micro-wave oven, coffee, free internet. Quite and comfortable. New owners are doing an admirable job of bringing this lovely little place up to date.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ronel, Alex and little Hudson are the proud owners of the Surf & Sand Inn. Originally from South Africa (Ronel) and France (Alex) we met in California and soon after getting married, little Hudson was born. Wanting to enjoy every single moment of life we decided to relocate our family and was fortunate to find this Inn, located in the heart of the Oregon coast in Tillamook County’s beach community of Pacific City. The Inn (formerly known as The Inn at Pacific City) has a rich history, the building dates back to 1906 and for many years served as the headquarters of the Coast Guard. For the past 22 years the Inn was ran by Doug & Patti Olsen who established a reputation for value and customer satisfaction. With our background in hospitality we are excited to continue to build on this tradition. Our 15 unit motor lodge is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, dining, the famous Nestucca River and ample outdoor activities. We have lots of extra parking for RV’s and boats and offer bicycle storage facilities. Driving distance from Portland, Salem and the Willamite Valley this beautiful part of the State offers something special for everyone. We hope to welcome you soon and don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or for special pricing; we are at your service! Life is too short to be lived outside of Pacific City!!! ... more   less
