“Room Details”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

In June I booked a room for two for arrival on the 18th of August for a four night stay. I booked the room through booking.com and received an email from the Surfside Resort that our room would feature a "panoramic" ocean view. Upon our arrival we were given a key to room 117 in building C and discovered we only had a "partial" view of the ocean. We went back to the office and expressed our disappointment but were told nothing else was available. Thereafter, we discovered most of the rooms in buildings A, B and C at this facility have a "panoramic" view of the ocean and we feel that in view of the fact that we booked two months ahead for four nights we should have been given priority and not stuck in Room 117 which was blocked by building B and we only had half of a view and paid for a "panoramic view." It was also a birthday celebration that week and needless to say we were so disappointed that we will probably never stay at the Surfside Resort in future trips to the coast.

Room Tip: If you pay for and want a panoramic view of the ocean, avoid room 117 because you only get a partial...

Rockaway Beach is not on the direct route to the Pacific coast... but it is quiet and serene. The Surfside Resort was "reasonable" in high season, very clean, modern, and unpretentious. There is a pool aside from the fact that it is right on the ocean, and it meets the description of a "getaway." There are full apartment-sized suites, so that one could cook in the apartment, or call for take-out. Or simply share with family or friends.

Room Tip: One could ask for an ocean view...or a suite with full kitchen, more like an apartment...

My family and I have been staying at the Surfside for years. It's a great place to stay because it has such wonderful beach access. We don't love crowds and the 7 miles of beach always has room. Having a kitchen in the room isgreat because you don't have to eat out all the time. It's not fancy, so if you're looking for that keep looking. But it usually has what you need and they are slowly making upgrades to the furniture, fireplaces, dishware, and beds. The pool is very nice and has been upgraded. My kids love it after getting cold in the ocean. The hotel is pet friendly and there are always a lot of dogs, which works great for us. We've never had a problem with aggressive or noisy dogs. We try to come to the Surfside at least once a year, and we've never had a problem that would keep us from going back. It's a quick trip to Tillamook for the cheese factory, air museum, and county museum, and not even much of a drive north to hit Mo's in Cannon Beach.

Room Tip: Always pay the extra for the beach front rooms. The view is amazing. If you can handle more stairs...

This is our hands down favourite place to go. We are a family of 5 plus dog. We always get the pet friendly suite with a separate bedroom for the kids. It's ideal - the kids get their own room with blackout blinds, closing door, and TV. What more could you want??? Plus, kitchenette so we can make our own breakfast and lunch every day. Oh - and balcony right in the beach, SO therapeutic. The pool is a great facility too, especially on days when the Oregon weather doesn't cooperate. The pool is always beautifully warm - unlike the ocean....

This is a perfect location at an affordable price. You can literally walk right out of your room and on to a beautiful beach. The rooms are nothing special but they are more than adequate and have been recently updated. Bed was good for a comfortable nights sleep. Staff was helpful and friendly. Recommended stay for the perfect location!

Room Tip: Choose a room without an ocean view if traveling on a budget. It's much more affordable and you...

Its in a great location. Easy beach access and very friendly employees! The indoor pool is decent. Be nicer if they had a hot tub. Rooms need updated! A little expensive for the over quality of the room but not horrible. Over all its a decent hotel with amazing views!

My boyfriend and I went for the weekend to stay here. It was $99 a night for a basic sleeper room which included a bed, tv, and bathroom/shower area which was a non oceanview room. We were also able to bring our husky mix because they allow dogs in certain rooms and that was a ten dollar a night extra charge. They were very friendly, the property was clean, and it was right on the beach. We feel like the value we got for what we paid was excellent. The only suggestion I would make for the hotel is to have a mini fridge in the the sleeper rooms or offer a small breakfast because we had to pack a cooler just to pack a couple sandwiches and milk.

Room Tip: If you don't care about having an ocean view and want to pay a little less then choose the regul...
