Stayed in The Argonauta Townhouse for two nights in April. The townhouse was great! Neat as a pin, literally steps to the beach and to town. We never got in our car, everything was walkable. Comfortable beds,charming upstairs bath, large main bath, perfect kitchen for breakfast and snacks (NOT cooking dinner on my getaway!). The gas fireplace is in an... More

When I stayed at the waves a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed at its' location. When they say beachfront, they mean beachfront. It is probably the best location in the whole town. Right on the beach and just a few steps from the main street with all the great restaurants and shops. Plus, the management and staff was... More

After all the 5 star reviews let me perhaps provide just a little balance. Room was in need of a deep cleaning - carpets and furniture. Fixtures and cabinets all starting to look beat up. The patio chairs and table were filthy and covered with sticky sand. The hot water runs scalding. No A/C, which would be acceptable, except the... More

I've been to Cannon Beach numerous times and never even paid any attention to staying ride in the middle of town. I've always stayed on the outskirts and drove to town to shop, eat...ect. This place has it all! It's fully equipped, comfortable beds, beautiful right on the beach views and just a short 30ft to the beach! I loved... More

Stayed at the Waves over Easter weekend. Fantastic place! Great location, friendly staff and terrific accommodations. Really like being downtown and right on the beach at the same time. The ocean front spa was really nice and great way to wind down our day of beachcombing. Asked for a dinner recommendation and was referred to the Bistro. Excellent choice for... More

I have never been able to afford a hotel room with a full beach view in the years I've been staying at Cannon Beach, but as the prices of my normal places mysteriously went up, I decided to check out The Waves. They had a deal so it actually we less $$ than my normal places! There was nothing I... More

There are lots of other choices when visiting Cannon Beach but none that match The Waves for location, cozy and comfortable accomidations and fantastic service. We had the pleasure of meeting the proprieters while there and they made us feel like family. Such a welcoming place! My family has stayed at a few places in Cannon beach, some closer to... More

The Waves motel has many different accomodation choices. There are rooms with multiple bedrooms, unique one of a kind family housing (The Beach House) and “rooms” which have kitchens and “rooms” which are stand alone buildings. The many different choices for accommodations on this property are a big draw but the main reason you would want to go here is... More

We recently stayed in the Sand Castle Condominium. The location is really good, quiet, with a nice view of the beach from the living room and porch. It is clean and has lots of space (walk in cabinet too) with well equipped kitchen and new appliances. It also has cable tv and wifi (sometimes not working though). We enjoyed the... More
