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
"Our Romantic Visit to the Cannon Beach Hotel."
The hotel room was very quaint. The tempurpedic mattress, linens, and fluffy pillows made our stay very joyful. Listening to the surf with our open patio /with scree door was a real treat..The hotel staff always helpful..the scenery beautiful ...very romantic...very memorable...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like no other hotel"
At first I thought the place was too fancy. Then I got used to it and realized it was more like staying at a beachhouse than at a hotel. The staff was very friendly. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not a sophisticated walk on the beach!"
07/29/14 Gary G Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
If you think this resort is going to be as nice as it's sister Inn, forget it!! The Stephanie Inn it is not!! It is loaded with noisy kids! The rooms have been nicely updated but really not sound proof. The small children slammed the door next door 21 times straight! Enough said.
"A Room With A Great View"
07/28/14 Adrienne C Portland
On the spur of the moment, my guy & I decided an overnight at Cannon Beach would be fun. I found the hotel on line & was happy to get a room. We were extremely delighted with the entire experience. The view was wonderful, rooms were well appointed & the staff was top flight. We will definitely return.
"Family memory making"
07/25/14 Jennifer L Victoria
This is our third visit to Cannon Beach. It is a very special place for our family. There is such a wonderful welcoming feeling from the staff, some of whom remember us from our previous visit. We opted to stay in the retreat building (the furthest from the beach) but the views were still good and we were still so close! The temperapedic bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and I am picky! What makes this place stand apart from the rest is the daily cabana service and evening campfire service. I especially liked the communal camp fire when met other travelers and enjoyed an amazing sunset and s'mores! The hotel even provided cozy blankets. The kids met other kids and the adults chatted with people from all different places. Felt like we were back to basics with the sense of community. For people wanting something more romantic the staff can build a private fire. For those with families, the resorts had daily crafts, turn down service with little toys for the kids and the kids eat free at the hotel and sister restaurant downtown. The afternoon cookies and milk in the lobby were also a hit with both kids and parents.
"What a lovely place! "
Our view of haystack rock was fantastic. The memory foam mattress and bed linens were incredibly comfortable. The room was tastefully decorated and the fireplace kept us toasty. We especially enjoyed the bonfire on the beach, which the staff build for guests each night. For $10 they'll even build you a private fire. This was my second visit, and they had a handwritten note and a little treat in the room, welcoming me back. Near by, Ecola State Park is stunning and a walk on Indian Hills Beach should not be missed.
"Another wonderful stay... but not quite as good as the 1st."
07/25/14 aj Seattle
1st off, the way they remodeled the bottom floor rooms is fantastic!!! Should have done that a long time ago. A few issues came up. 1st off at check in as I came in with my pet which was also verified on our reservation and I booked a pet friendly room the check in greeter immidiately said "Oh your not in a pet friendly room"- I asked how that is possible when I clearly booked one on line and already paid the $15.00 night charge on our reservation. She said "well I guess we will make an exception"- then as we got to our room the little pet care package was waiting for us obviously knowing we were coming. So Im really not sure what the girl was trying to do- maybe trying to make it seem SHE would save the day or something, it was just weird. A couple other things- Wifi is terrible in that building, not sure about the others as this is the only building we ever stay in. Housekeeping could do a better job. Felt like they just rushed through. Didn't actually clean and organize, just through rolled up towels under sink, made bed and took off. Garbage was still left around as was sand on the floor. All other services and amenities were fabulous. For the amount they gouge you for these rooms though EVERYTHING should be top notch.
"Walking Distance To Town"
07/25/14 Barney S Auburn, Alabama
We chose to stay at Surfsand Resort because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. The Surfsand people were super friendly when we checked in and when we had any questions and went to the front office to ask. Our room had a balcony facing Haystack Rock which was a treat as this was the first time in Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock is really a cool sight! The room had really good furnishings with a great walk in shower. The only draw back was that there was no air conditioning and we were there during the few days that it really got warm. There is a beach community bonfire from 7 - 10 p.m. weather permitting and you are given two smores per person at the bonfire. Here's a hint: If you are going out to dinner and can't be there at 7 to get your smores then you can have a private smores party reserved for $10 for the family. Ask them at the front desk about this. If we can ever get back to Cannon Beach from the deep South then we'll stay at Surfsand again.

Well, another Family Reunion at Surfsand. We had the same great service and the stay was wonderful! It is so close to the beach....you can touch the surf. Great indoor swimming pool and awesome workout center. The grounds were landscaped with beautiful flowers and the resort made bonfires made our sunsets even more amazing. We have come here many years and will keep coming back. There is something for every age here!
"Great but expensive beachfront resort"
07/20/14 JBN3 McMinnville, Oregon
We enjoy going to the coast occasionally and want to stay in a motel where we can see the beach and ocean. This resort is an easy walk to Haystack Rock and you are right on the beach which makes it perfect for us. Also you can stay for a single night in the summer (while many hotels like the Hallmark close by require a two-night booking). Great restaurant on premises and some businesses just across the street (coffee shop too). A bit of a walk to the downtown area although there is both a city bus and a resort shuttle that can take you there. We had a small room complete with a Temperpedic bed in the beachfront building; just outside was an area with lawn and pretty flowers and we could see Haystack Rock and the ocean beyond. Room came with full amenities and a gas fireplace. The room however was expensive.There are many amenities we did not use such as a toy box and towels on the beach for guests, free DVD's and games in the office, snacks, etc.
"Update on a previous review:"
07/20/14 Samantha N Ellensburg, Washington
I had a previous review for a stay in December, that was great but with a few little disappointments. Following that stay I had been corresponding via email with the event planners in regards to hosting my wedding there this October. The ladies I was working with were amazing, very helpful, quick to respond and provide information, and just leaps and bounds better than anywhere else I was attempting to work with. My fiancé' and I scheduled a return trip at the beginning of March, and had an amazing time. We gave the restaurant, The Wayfarer another go and had great service and food. Any concern we had previously was addressed and I am looking forward to coming back in October with my friends and family and getting married. The amazing customer service and responsiveness of the staff make this hotel a great place to stay. (I am sure I will be back to update after the wedding!)
"Great view of the Pacific Ocean & great service!"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cannon Beach Surfsand! It is right on the beach with great views & beautiful sunsets if the weather is good like it was for us. We stayed in the Oceanfront Building on the 3rd floor. (Rooms with good views are best on the 3rd floor with 2302, 2303, 2304 & 2305.) The Beachfront Building is located closer to the beach than the Oceanfront building & partially blocks some of the Oceanfront rooms' views in rooms with partially blocked ocean views are: #2301, or the 2nd floor #2201-2205 or 1st floor #2101-2105. The Oceanfront building definitely has the best views & I would recommend a room above the ground floor. We loved our time there & did not want to leave!!! The weather was sunny & warm! The Surfsand does a lot of little extras to make your stay special - ie. free bikes to check out for up to 2 hours, fresh baked cookies in the lobby each afternoon, free dvd movies to rent, free umbrellas & chairs that they will set up for you on the beach & for $10 they will build you a bonfire on the beach in the evening to roast marshmallows & enjoy the evening. The service was great & everybody was very helpful! This is a great place for couples or families. We will definitely stay at the Surfsand again soon!!!
