Vintage flair, classic value and a history of hospitality.

Here at the Surf and Sand Inn, we’ve been welcoming lodgers since the 1940s – first as a U.S. Coast Guard lookout station, and, today, as a casual, comfortable motor lodge with a retro beach motel vibe and a host of modern conveniences. We work hard to offer the friendliest service and best value in Pacific City — just two blocks from the beach. Join us for your next vacation and see why, with 4.5 stars, we’re one of TripAdvisor’s top-rated motels on the Oregon Coast.


We deep clean before every arrival to help quash COVID -- and to make sure you feel at ease and at home. There’s plenty of free parking right out front, and every room is ground-level for easy access. We’re positioned along the Oregon Coast Bicycle route and the Federal Scenic Byway System, footsteps away from shopping, dining, art and the mighty Pacific Ocean. Cape Kiwanda, Haystack Rock and the original Pelican Brewing Company are a short drive or bike ride away.


We’re located in the heart of historic Pacific City -- one of the last authentic, untamed rural beach towns. Fishermen still flock to the banks of the grand Nestucca River (just one block away), and craftsmen still tend to the region’s famed dory boats in a neighboring drydock (three doors down). Every room features art -- and an attitude -- that celebrates our history along with modern conveniences like flatscreen TVs, microwaves, coffeemakers, mini-fridges, high-speed wifi and more than 90 cable channels.


For decades, we’ve been family owned and family operated; and you’ll feel a sense of familial warmth in every interaction with our team. Even our booking terms are friendly: We have a generous 48-hour free-cancelation policy, and we don’t charge your credit card until check in time. (Email or call to ask about our:

Very nice!
We stayed here with our dog. The room is small, with a queen bed, but very clean and has everything we needed. The motel is easy to find and has plenty of space for walking the dog. I would not hesitate to stay here again, desk person was super nice and helpful with places to eat.

Darling and Well Kept Motel
The rooms and outside of this motel were very clean and nice. We had the best customer service at check-in and everything was pretty much contactless including our checkout. Definitely recommend this as a place to stay If you’re in the area.

April get away
This place was wonderful. Clean, reasonably priced, great location and friendly helpful staff. Kristen and Ruby helped us out and were available with suggestions of best places. We actually got a free upgrade to a larger double with a kitchenette! Totally unexpected. If I go back to PC, this is going to be my first pick.
