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.

Spent 2 nights with my family of 4 in a king suite with ocean view. Beautiful hotel. Nice and clean. Massive bathroom. Roomy bedroom. Did a lot of room service with COVID 19 pandemic. Unfortunately, with small windows in the bedroom suffered from a claustrophobia attack. Will return anytime I’m in Cannon beach.

My wife and I enjoyed again the wonders of Cannon Beach and Surfsand. If you have never experienced Surfsand, you've got to try it. Surfsand Resort is really close to Haystack Rock and is a short walk.

A room with an actual patio with a sliding door and a screen so that we could listen to the ocean all night and all day, plus view the waves and to be able to walk down to the beach anytime was the primary selling point. The cherry on top was the proximity to the Wayfarer Restaurant & shops, the fresh wood they provide for beach fires at night,… Read more
A room with an actual patio with a sliding door and a screen so that we could listen to the ocean all night and all day, plus view the waves and to be able to walk down to the beach anytime was the primary selling point. The cherry on top was the proximity to the Wayfarer Restaurant & shops, the fresh wood they provide for beach fires at night, and the late night "adult swim" in the indoor pool and hot tub that we enjoyed.

I had quite a pleasant stay at the Surfsand Resort. The views from the rooms are amazing and their amenities are very welcoming and cozy (the bed, the fireplace, the bathtub). I really enjoyed my time in the jacuzzi and making my own fire pit. I also loved the idea of having complementary bikes to grab, but didn't use them. What I didn't like was the fact that the walls are really thin, so I could hear everything happening on the rooms next and above mine. After complaining about the noise that woke me up every day, the staff kindly moved me to a room on the top. Their Wayfarer restaurant is really good as well, but I'd say as well that for the price of the room the breakfast should be included. I'd consider staying again at the Surfsand if I ever go back to Cannon Beach. Read less

We loved our beachfront room with private balcony. We felt able to relax for the first time in months without having to worry about keeping our distance from others. Make sure to book the beachfront building if you want front row viewing of Haystack Rock. It's absolutely worth it. Staff are always friendly and responsive here. Thank you! We know… Read more
