It is hard to put into words how kind and accommodating they are at The Waves. My wife has physical needs and over these many long years they have always gone out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. This alone makes it the best place to stay but when you add on the perfect location... More

Modest little apartment type accommodations just outside the main part of town. Nice view of the ocean. Had small kitchen and basic needed equipment, fireplace. Bath small but adequate. Pillows had seen better days but the queen mattress was comfortable. Lots of noticeable plastic on the beach.

What a fantastic place! The Waves was perfect for our trip to the Coast! The location of the property was more than one could ask for. It is oceanfront, with a variety of accomodations offering views of the ocean, or courtyard. The rooms had everything we needed, and it was nice to have a kitchen available too. But you won't...

We stayed at The Waves in Cannon Beach in The Garden room for three nights. We have stayed there previously and enjoyed the stay and so returned for another vacation. The room and property are very well maintained and extremely convenient to both the beach and the downtown Cannon Beach area. We didn't have to drive anywhere for the three... More

We arrived early so our room wasn't ready. That was fine. We knew we were early and took our chance. We were shown the location of our room and finding it was on the first floor with direct access to the street, we knew we didn't want the extra noise (although it put us that much closer to the beach.)...

It started with a booking mix-up at a neighboring property. We received a complementary booking at "the Waves". We were reluctant at first (and about half mad because of the mix up at the other place). They assured us it was nice so we decided to take a chance. We came away very happy. We were given an ocean front... More

I've stayed at The Waves several times. Great rooms, comfortable beds & friendly, professional staff. It's a great hotel to enjoy the sounds of the ocean. It's my first choice for my stays at Cannon Beach.

I recently stayed at the Waves beach house with a group of friends, and had such a fun time! The house was large enough to accommodate a good-sized group, and was right up the stairs from on the beach. The views were amazing, and a great walk to Haystack Rock! The hotel's location is prime--a cute coffee shop is right... More

Just had a fabulous weekend in Cannon Beach at The Waves Hotel! The location was perfect for our group and The Argonauta Inn. We had a group of 6 and it fit us perfectly. The murphy bed was a nice addition in the living room so everyone could spread out a bit. Love the first and second floor decks and... More
