Surfsand Resort

Oregon, USA

The hotel

Spotting starfish in tide pools. Getting out on Beach Cruiser bikes. Toasting marshmallows for s’mores around beach bonfires. Taking starlit walks on the sands. It's all here on Cannon Beach. At Surfsand Resort, 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 fresh cookies and saltwater taffy, and seasonal weekly popcorn carts, ice cream socials, and ‘Weenie Roasts’. And the ocean views are hard to beat – the hotel is practically on the beach, yet just a stroll from downtown, including the Surfsand owners’ own Public Coast Brewing Company.

Our room was clean and well appointed. We loved view it was fantastic being able to see Haystack rock morning noon and night. Walks on the beach with our dog. I love that dogs are treated like humans getting dog bones when we can get cookies/ milk after 3:00!! Dogs have towels for after walks!

The beds were really comfortable and the beachfront suite layout was perfect for a family vacation. Our toddler was able to nap and my husband and I could enjoy the beautiful view. A walkable location all around town and the beach with a toddler.

The oceanfront rooms were exactly as pictured, and cozy. Staff was friendly and helpful. The ocean view and access were terrific. The clam chowder at the Wayfarer was the best I have ever had; fresh and tasty! Cute town with many local businesses.
