Lovely room overlooking the ocean... great view of the lighthouse and Ecola River and just a couple blocks from main street Cannon Beach but far enough away for peace and solitude. My room (a Queen Loft) had a nice river rock fireplace, small breakfast table, microwave and refrigerator, as well as coffee pot. It had everything I needed! Be prepared,...

This property is so conveniently located to the shopping, beach and good restaurants. The accommodations are consistently clean and the staff very welcoming. We especially like the kitchen facilities with a full oven and stove, microwave and refrigerator. One could easily stay for a long term in the beautifully decorated rooms with Jacuzzi.

It was a great location on the beach and central to restaurants and shops. We did not move the car during the weekend. Rooms were clean and staff was nice. We would definitely return to stay on our next visit to this area of the Oregon Coast.

Our stay at the waves was so peaceful. The place was beautifully appointed and had virtually everything we needed. The bedding was the most comfortable I've experienced anywhere and I plan on buying my own Comphy sheets now. The fireplace and soaking tub were my favorite addition and our view of the beach was serene. My only complaint was that...

It was so nice when we checked in that we asked to extend our stay! It was clean, comfortable and on a beautiful stretch of Cannon Beach. The staff was very accomodating in getting us the extra night and if we did'nt have to come home we would have stayed even longer. Take advantage of the campfire provisions and build...

We had a wonderful time. The room was great. It was just a few stair steps to the beach. The beach was beautiful and great fun for my whole family. The room was spacious for all of us. The room was also in town so it was easy to shop as well.

Very inviting hotel from 1st sight. Clean and comfortable and great friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely return, and highly recommend to everyone. It's a two minute walk to the beach, at the most. Beach is soft wonderful sand, not rocky. Quaint little town, fun to walk around and good food choices in walking distance.

The hotel is located in the "old town" of Cannon Beach, which is actually the best part of Cannon Beach, in the heart of restaurants, galleries and shops. I asked for an ocean view room and got it. There two buildings that belong to the hotel, facing the ocean in two rows. Go for the building in the first row...
