Historical Traveler Reviews Surfrider Resort Depoe Bay
My fiance and I love this hotel! It has amazing views of the ocean and decks. You can hear the ocean waves while you sleep.
The restaurant has great food and the staff was very friendly. In fact, we are going back to the Surfrider next week. We would definitely recommend this hotel - great prices too.
Loved the hotel
Our children were allowed to pick a destination for their 10th birthday trip with the parent of their choice for a 3-4 day vacation. My son chose Depoe Bay oregon and we stayed at the Surf Rider motel. Our room was on the second floor and it over looked the water. We saw alot of whales in the bay from our room. The hotel was older but very nice. Restaurante was very good. We have been there several times over the years and look forward to returning.
I love this hotel!!
This is one of my favorite places to stay!! I stayed at the Surfrider ever year since 1991. For the price you get a great room with a nice size deck overlooking the ocean. Yes, you do share the deck with the adjoing room, but most of the time your either don't see the other guest or you do and since we are there for the same thing (the great view) you can make some great small talk. The staff is very nice and the resturant food is great (a good sign is quite a few locals eat here also). This is my get away place to relax. Yes some of the rooms are older, but for the price of the coast, it's a great deal. There's a beach located below the hotel (the staircase is a great workout). If you are not a guest at the hotel, you have to park across Hwy 101 a walk a nice way to get to the beach. The result is fewer people on the beach. Great beach for shell hunting and seal watching (certain times of the year for this).
I will continue to stay here each year!!
Love this Place!
I have stayed at the Surfrider several times thru out the years. I love it. The people are wonderful. The food is great. The view is outstanding. Anytime I have the oppertunity to go to the Oregon coast. I will stay there.
Surfrider: only OK
We stayed here for one night in early June, 2004. It is right on the ocean with a decent view and access to a small beach. The staff was friendly and helpful and you get the sense that the management cares. However, our first room was dark and smelled musty and had an odd chemical smell. In order to change rooms, we had to pay extra money to upgrade to a nicer room, which was better, but frankly didn't seem like good value for the price. And note that at least in our building (#3, I think?), if you have an upper floor unit you do not have doors that open directly onto your balcony. You share an odd vestibule access with the neighboring room-- with a door that slams!). We have stayed in nicer places on the coast for the same money so I doubt if we would return. We did not use the pool or restaurant so I can't review those.
A great vacation place
A great vacation place. We arrived April 25th and stayed untill the 28th. our room was great with a one of a kind view. the food in the resturant was outstanding, the pool was very relaxing everything was clean and neet. We have stayed at the Surfrider four or five times and have and always found this way. We are looking forward to comeing back next year Larry and Judy French Prineville Or.
Relax Overlooking Ocean
We stayed at the Surfrider Resort for 3 days, 2 nights. We had a great time. We sat in the comfy chairs at the picture window of our room and had a private viewing of an ocean storm. We drove only a couple of miles south to shop and watch sea life in Depoe Bay. We drove a few miles north to Salishan Market Place to again shop and on another few miles to Lincoln City where we found great resturants and shopping - even outlet stores. And all the while the beautiful Pacific Ocean and lovely beaches all along the way.Our room at the Surfrider Resort was clean, comfortable, attractive with a great view of the ocean all at competitive prices. The resturant had relaxing ambiance, again with a beautiful view. The menu offered wide variety of seafood and other specialties. The staff were very friendly from front desk, to housekeeping, to resturant staff. We will be returning to the Surfrider Resort and we highly recomment it.
Very enjoyable stay
My husband and stayed at the Surfrider on 10/31 & 11/1/03. The stay was very relaxing, the view was wonderful, the room was very spacious and clean. The staff were all very courteous. We ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food was really good. I would recommend this establishment to friends and family.
We were attending a family reunion in Depoe Bay and booked this hotel after reading the review on this website from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. We were not disappointed. It was clean and spacious, with a fabulous private beach. The food in the restaurant was okay, service was good overall. We were only in the hotel one night, so we didn't get to use all of the amenities; we did appreciate the coin-operated guest laundry though.
This is an excellent - updated - motel on the
beach with a fine restaurant attached. We've
stayed there several times - friendly people.

Got to spend this morning just hanging out with the guys, Bill and Ron, who took time out of their busy schedules and away from family to volunteer and travel and cook for us. Love hearing of life stories. The guys have already traveled on to Brookings while I will remain in Newport another night to share with the kids this evening at Central Coast AG about BGMC and ministry to kids in Romania.
... was messy, fun, and full of wonder. We left Nehalem Bay and continued south into the lumber town of Garibaldi and then around Tillamook Bay into the town named for it. The town is famous primarily for cheese and secondly for smoked beef. And the town is surrounded by succulent pastures full of stinking Holsteins. To the west of town, the Three Capes Road was still shut down after one full year due to active landslides in the area northeast if Cape Meares. ...
Leaving Crater Lake, we descended out of the mountains and drove back to Portland along the coast. We were treated to excellent views, and we stopped to view some sea lions. We hoped see some whales, but they were not cooperative. We also stopped to see the Heceta Head lighthouse, and had a sunset dinner before we left the coast to return to Portland. It was a great ...
... Henry made friends with a 'mermaid' and he jumped around as a 'sea monkey', ooo-ooo-aah-aahing the whole time. It was nice to see him interacting with other kids. He misses his preschool friends. Right next to the aquarium is the self-proclaimed 'Aquarium Village', a motley assortment of "antique" stores (household junk) that all sport a rather dilapidated pirate theme. Case in point, there's a pirate statue (not the one pictured here) that you put ...

This is a proper working and profitable port. 250 boats ply their trade here picking up salmon to oysters. Along the front are processors and the fishermen sell straight from the trawlers to the public.
The restaurants buy directly from the boats and the place is full of trucks shipping fresh fish all around the country.
A lesson in how to do it right.
