Been going to Cannon Beach for 30 years and first time here-it is now our favorite. Definitely above most other places-on the same level as Stephanie Inn. Only critique: told the housekeeper that there was brown spots all over the inside of the sliding door to the toilet and it was never cleaned. Maybe she didn't understand me?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and warm cookies too!"
Great view from first floor room. Nice to sit on deck and drink wine. What a view! Very friendly town. Restaurant associated with hotel was very expensive but good. Would stay in hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel - Some surprises"
We loved the hotel and the staff was extremely helpful. The room was spectacular with a fire place and a beautiful bathroom. Our surprises were that our room was below ground level and pet were allowed in teh hotel. We think we were placed in a "basement" (below ground level) room because we booked the room through hotels.com. Prior to booking the hotel, […] I would have liked to know that the pets were allowed in the hotel due to my allergies. Other than these surprises, I would definitely stay at this hotel again, but would request a room on the top floor and check to make sure it was a pet-free room.

"Right on the beach, yet very quiet"
We stayed to attend a wedding and everything was very nice. A very nice restaurant, The Wayfarer, is right there, plus easy walking distance to other establishments. The only down side is they are NOT PART OF THE REWARDS PROGRAM, which means I did not get credit for two nights stay. This was very disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved everything about the Surfsand, the fact that they cater so nicely to pets, the rooms are vervy clean and extremely updated. The staff was very accomodating and polite. Our only concern was when the reservations were made we were told we would pay at the end of our visit, when infact the first night was paid for before we were even there, and […] the second night was posted to my card the day we checked in. This was my only concern and a little upsetting, as we used a different credit card for one of the nights. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were all rock stars and really went the extra mile to be pleasant. Enjoyed it so much I have already re-booked. Nuff said.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we had a "basement room" with no view really, peering out through the blinds. The room itself was lovely and all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the Beach!"
Wonderful experience falling asleep to the sound of the roaring waves right on the beach. Room was recently renovated, fireplace, huge shower. Very friendly and helpful staff. Memory foam bed was a little firm for me but I would recommend this hotel as a fantastic place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Everything was just as it should be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"As long as you get a good room..."
Our "free" internet connection didn't work unless we stood on a chair in one corner of the room. We had a window that couldn't physically close all the way which made a horrible humming/whistling sound during the howling wind storm we witnessed. Our DVD player also wasn't able to be recognized by the tv even after following the instructions. None of […] this wouldn't have mattered if the weather had been better and allowed us to not be locked up in our room. The location is nice, and with the right weather would be great, but we found too many little things wrong with our room to really feel satisfied with our stay. We probably wouldn't have noticed the window being broken had we not timed our stay with a winter storm, but it still seemed like something a hotel should have been on top of. When checking out, we mentioned it and got an apology but I doubt we'll ever be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfortable, great view & friendly staff"
We looked up a place to stay in Cannon Beach overnight and found Surfsand resort. We thought it was a small place based on photos we found but it was a rather large resort. Our room was seaside with a great view even though we were on the bottom floor. We woke up to see kids making sand castles and dogs playing on the beach. I couldn't have been happier! […] I will definitely stay here again if I make my way back o Cannon Beach. Or refer to anyone I know is going. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything we needed and more"
09/17/14 David H Salem, Oregon, USA
Our stay here was part of a club social event. It was our first stay in Cannon Beach. Our room was classy, well appointed, great bathroom with large glass shower and awesome water pressure. Large Dell flat screen TV, and a smaller flat screen in the bathroom. Firm but comfortable foam mattress, nice couch/hide-a-bed, glassware, corkscrew, mini-fridge, micro, coffee maker, large deck with chairs...the room had everything we needed and more. The only thing lacking was A/C (it was a warm weekend), but there was a large box-fan in the closet. Multiple restaurants very nearby (walking distance), we had great meals. Indoor pool and fitness center were both clean and inviting. Banquet facilities across the street were very nice and the meal they prepared was delicious. Chairs, blankets, firewood and 'smores makings were provided for a late-night beach bonfire. Huge beach with a view of nearby Haystack Rock. Staff were all wonderful and even made fresh baked cookies every afternoon and had chocolate milk to wash down the delicious cookies! We highly recommend the Surfsand Resort. We will be back!
"great room, view, staff"

We are regular visitors to Cannon Beach but this was only our 2nd stay at the Surfsand. We will be back! We had an oceanfront junior suite (separate living area with gas fireplace, mini frig, coffee maker; large bath with soaking tub and separate walk-in shower; separate bedroom) with a nice balcony looking out to the beach and haystack rock. Our room was "dog friendly" with wood floors. They even provided dog dishes, treats, extra towels, and poop bags for our pup. The staff were wonderful, from check-in to housekeeping, and the beach hosts who will build you a campfire complete with 'smores fixings and blankets for the evening chill. The Wayfarer restaurant next door will provide room service, too. We were lucky with excellent weather and couldn't have been happier.

It was my first time to Cannon Beach and the Surfsand Resort made the trip even better. We didn't book any reservations before going and once we got there, most places were booked. The Surfsand was the first one we walked into to check vacancies. The lady at the front desk was so nice and friendly, she explained the different rooms and the rates and let us know the resort was dog friendly :) We opted for just a regular room (which was way bigger than I thought it would be) that wasn't beach front. We planned on spending most of our time on the beach anyways and just needed a place to sleep. Our room had two queen sized beds and the bathroom....the bathroom was amazing! Huge jacuzzi tub, tv, dimming lights, and wine glasses...great for a romantic evening in. Even though our room wasn't beach front, we had a great view of Haystack Rock. They also gave us a list of events happening for the week and offered cookies and chocolate milk in the lobby. Every night they have a community bonfire (we didn't go, but thought it was a neat option). I didn't want to leave, it was awesome! I would highly recommend this resort to everyone...great staff, great location, great rooms....GREAT everything! (Even the strawberry water in the lobby was amazing!) we now plan on making this our destination to go every year. I can't wait to go back to Surfsand and beautiful Cannon Beach. Oh and the patio was pretty nice with two lounger chairs so you can sit and enjoy the sun or even watch the sunset on the Haystack Rock :)
"Renovated room are super...ask to check view if haystack rock"
09/11/14 FiluMilu Atlanta, Georgia
Right off beach but with direct access...beach is stunning, Cannot say enough about room pluses. Fireplace, porch with a direct view of Haystack rock, great coffee, love seat, desk, coffee table, great bath. Set up for cool breezes to flow through room. Wayfarer Restaurant on beach is way better than I expected - looks like a tourist trap....sit outside and they offer you a blanket (we needed them). Place is a pleasant surprise...as is Cannon Beach.

Have stayed at the Surf Sand for years and have always had a great experience. The hotel is only a few floors, with exterior entrances. (More of a "motel" configuration.) It is spotlessly clean, and has the best view of Haystack Rock! The staff is always friendly and helpful. Cannon Beach is a lovely, small coastal town; a few great galleries, boutiques, candy store, bakery, restaurants, etc., but, there are only a few choice hotels in town. Surf Sand is our favorite! It is right on the beach and has a wonderful restaurant. The rooms do vary tremendously, however. You'll want to stay in the REMODELED section. There is also a section of the hotel (w/o beach view) that is very sadly in need of update. The remodeled rooms are very contemporary and are quite nicely furnished. Nice bath (and quality towels), wonderful bed, great linens, flat screen, fireplace,etc. It is absolutely worth the extra $ to have a view. Even the "partial view" rooms have a great view. Be forewarned, there are actually some rooms that are daylight basement-type rooms. You are looking up at the sand. Very unpleasant! Make it clear that you do not want one of these rooms.
"Outstanding, friendly service- great location"
09/07/14 Marcia B Seattle, Washington
This was our 1st time at the Surfsand Resort and we couldn't be happier. We were traveling with our 4 month old puppy and the staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. They even gave us a list of pet friendly restaurants in town. The lobby dog treats and water bowl with fresh flowing water was appreciated by the pup and the humans were grateful for the afternoon chocolate chip cookies. Our room had a great view of Haystack Rock. Clean rooms, great location, and outstanding customer service. We'll be back!

Stayed for the first time and loved it. Rooms were great, we had a north west ocean view which was a dream waking up to every morning while having out morning coffee Cookies and milk in the lobby was a cute bonus. We paid the 25 dollar fee for a bonfire on the beach which came with everything you needed for smores with enough to take home with you. It included friendly staff setting up the fire for you with blankets and chairs. The gym was decent with up to date cardio machines and free weights. Also in the gym area was a sauna. Staff were extremely friendly. Free wifi was a bonus. The only thing I would change would be the hotel room prices. They are a bit steep especially for the first week of September. We Will return.
"Great family resort, awesome location"
09/04/14 dynoduo Kamloops
We only stayed one night on our way through Oregon. We were in a partial-view room which looked straight down the wide pathway to the beach and out onto Haystack rock. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and updated. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and there are plenty of family friendly activities and amenities. The location is fantastic, and only a 10 minute walk to "downtown" Cannon Beach shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend!
Unfortunately the room was not quite clean, the cold water in the bathroom did not work and the carpet was filthy. The desk clerk overcharged my card and then the supervisor Rachel was incredibly rude and condescending . So for the price the quality is not there nor the customer service I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE HOTEL!
"perfect first trip to Cannon Beach"
09/02/14 txtraveller82 Fort Worth, Texas
This my first trip to Cannon Beach, and based on mixed reviews, I was unsure of where to stay. We settled on Surfsand because they had our travel dates available, and the room had a view of Haystack Rock....I am so glad we stayed at this wonderful resort! The proximity to the beach and great restaurants was wonderful, but the service and customer oriented details (S'mores and bonfires on the beach!) are what made our stay so memorable. After spending three days exploring Cannon Beach, Surfsand is easily one of the nicest hotels in town. One piece of advice, while Surfsand operates a number of restaurants in Cannon Beach, our meal at Wayfarer was the only disappointing meal we had during our stay. I recommend venturing away from the hotel for meals, and enjoying some terrific dining elsewhere!
