My adult daughter, my sister and I spent only one night here, but we'd love to go back and stay longer. We shared a non-view room to save money, but the location is so central we still were able to enjoy the ocean and the beach. We could walk to all the shops and restaurants and the beach was just...

My husband and I would undoubtedly stay at the Waves again! The staff are friendly and very helpful! Our room was everything we hoped for and then some.We had an excellent view of the beach and ocean! And we can't wait to visit the Waves in Cannon Beach again sometime soon!

We had a La Colina Queen Studio. This was a last minute booking for us the night before arrival. Upon check in everything went smoothly and quickly and we were given a great dinner recommendation upon request. The room felt like home away from home. Everything is very close walking distance from here. I am bringing my mom and grandma... More

This Motel is in the heart of the City and right on the Pacific Ocean beach. You are within walking distance of all shops in the downtown area. This Motel is Clean, Quiet and has a friendly staff. Wi-Fi in all rooms and ours had a Kitchenette so you could cook a meal if you wanted to.

We had a last minute get away and were able to find an apartment for one night. It was the unit right by the office. It was on the 2nd floor with a deck. They told us it was a peekaboo view of the ocean, but it was more than that. It had two bedrooms, a bath, a decent kitchen... More

We walked in and muttered the words, "Oh wow! Oh, just look, this is perfect!". The beach was laid out before us; our view was our own-private- and the interior design welcomed us. While the walk downtown was short, when we were in our space it was all about retreat. Couldn't ask for more save another day or two or... More

We just returned from two nights at this well-located hotel in the center of Cannon Beach. Our room was # 304, La Colina, an end room with one level above us. It was, despite being on a kind of public walkway to the beach, quite quiet and pleasant, and the view from our bed and our small deck was of... More

Enjoyed the Flagship King Studio @ Waves. Great room: quiet, comfortable and very well kept. The rooms in this unit seem to limit the number of beds to one - making for a very positive kid free environment.

Our room was perfect for my husband and I. Beautiful beach view and cozy fireplace. It was quiet and relaxing and just steps from the beach. We plan on making this hotel our destination whenever we visit Cannon Beach.

Although I had originally thought that I wanted to be closer to Haystack Rock, reviews of this motel were so compelling that we went with the Waves. Of the 4 different styles of buildings with slightly different locations on the property, we chose the Southwind building, which is one row behind the oceanfront and provided a better value.
