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

The Wave is our all time favorite place to stay in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Lovely accommodations, nice staff, great location for walking the beach and down town areas. Property is regularly updated, kitchenettes are well stocked, beds & linens are good quality.

Really enjoyed our stay at the waves hotel. Office staff was friendly and helpful nice clean room. Had a great ocean view, jacuzzi was wonderful for the muscles after a long day of hiking. Cannon beach is fantastic but just know it is more of a sleepy resort town so nothing opens before 8 (even the coffee shops), except the... More

We've stayed at Cannon Beach many times, but this was our first time staying so close in town. This will be our new "place to stay" in Cannon Beach. We were on the 2nd floor, 1 bedroom with a Murphy bed in the living room. Our balcony looked out over the beach. And we were 1 block from all the... More
