Surfsand Resort

Oregon, USA

The hotel

Spotting starfish in glimmering tide pools. Racing each other on Beach Cruiser bicycles. Toasting marshmallows for s’mores around beach bonfires. Taking starlit strolls on the sands, guided by the lantern from your suite. When you stay at Surfsand Resort, it’s not long before you forget life back home and start reconnecting (that said; this beachfront hideaway does come with free WiFi too). The owners haven’t just thought of the big things, like the heated pool and room service from Wayfarer Restaurant & Lounge next door, they’ve also arranged complimentary treats like freshly baked cookies and saltwater taffy, and seasonal weekly popcorn carts, ice cream socials, and ‘Weenie Roasts’. And the location’s sublime – with views over the ocean, it’s on a beach just a stroll from the downtown restaurants, including the Surfsand owners’ own Public Coast Brewing Company.

The drive was dicey (icy and snowy) getting there through Washington, but well worth the effort. The room was comfortable, and toasty, the view was spectacular. A late dinner at the Wayfarer in front of the fireplace was cozy and really delicious. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.

I think the word "resort" might conjure up grander expectations of the campus; there's no gatehouse or massive fountain or large expanses of lawn or golf course.

I think the word "resort" might conjure up grander expectations of the campus; there's no gatehouse or massive fountain or large expanses of lawn or golf course. But it does have multiple buildings from the roadfront to oceanfront, and offers amenities that are resort-analogous particularly if you think beach. The desk staff are friendly and we got there on movie night (a collection of free DVD rentals spiced with fresh popcorn at the desk). It's a short downhill drive to the oceanfront rooms and the rest are splayed out to the northeast a bit. Our third floor room had a panoramic view of the ocean, with the sand starting perhaps 20 feet from the comfortable balcony. It was cold as the dickens the night we stayed so we didn't use it much, but in warm weather for sunsets I'm sure it's amazing. If you had a crossbow you could probably hit Haystack Rock from your balcony...it's RIGHT there. Pretty much any room in that oceanfront building is gonna give you that view. Ask for one of those. The room itself is comfortable, good bed, great gas fireplace. The bath products are Aveda which is pretty chic. Room service and there's a full restaurant just steps away and even closer to Haystack Rock. I would say it's not a VALUE stay but you get what you pay for so you won't feel disappointed for kicking in the extra dollars if you got em. The terrain is a bit steep to walk between buildings and there's a large flight of stairs to get from the east side, around the pool and to the oceanfront building. Not super ADA-friendly for walking, but there's elevators for the buildings and easy front desk entry, and if you drive the campus you'll be fine as far as access. Great for couples and families alike. The southern end of Cannon isn't quite as packed with shops and restaurants as the north end, but there are plenty of places to choose from and visit nonetheless. A little less bustling and spread out. Easy access from the highway too. Read less

Had a chance to stay 2 nights during the king tide season. Our corner room was perfect for storm watching and also easy to let the dogs out. Loved every minute of it and will definitely return. Meals at the Wayfarer were excellent!
