I just enjoyed four days at The Waves, in an upstairs room facing the beach. It's a great place to decompress and just enjoy the atmosphere. It is close to everything, yet set a little apart, so it feels very private. I know I had neighbors on either side, but I didn't hear a thing from them and I'm a... More

We rented a suite for kids to join us at the beautiful haystack beach and the weather cooperated with sunny skies for 4 days. Our accommodations were right on the beach, modern, clean, and comfortable and we took advantage of the beautiful kitchen and dining facilities to witness spectacular sunsets for 4 straight nights. All the staff were helpful, courteous... More

We found this excellent place to stay in 1978 it was a much smaller older place but the owners made us very welcome and our family had a great time, we came back for many years as our family grew and the Waves just got bigger and better but the people were still the same gracious hosts. The great thing... More

I personally feel that $250.00 a night for this condo was unreasonable. You are at the opposite end of the beach from the Haystack and Needles. You can see the ocean from the deck but the view is really what you pay for. I would suggest you put in an extra $100/night and stay at the other end of the... More

One of the greatest hotels we have ever stayed at! The immense size and space allowed gives people the accomadations of splendor and space to escape by yourselves. An upscale kitchen and dining area allows for watching beautiful sunsets and storms. The deck was spacious and had coverings around it to keep the wind out. A wonderful table and barbeque... More

The perfect spot! In the heart of Cannon Beach and a few steps from the beach. The hotel owners were kind enough to pick me up from the bus stop and easily accomidated my needs when i decided to extend my stay. The room was a little warm but I also just happened to be there when it was unusually... More

We had the ideal location for our Cannon Beach stay. The Waves is very centrally located within a short half block of the Cannon Beach downtown area. Our unit (Flagship, 404) had a spectacular 180 degree view of the ocean and private access to the beach. The unit itself was very large and specious with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a... More

We selected The Wave based on Tripadvisor reviews. Indeed - it is a very nice "Motel" - which is kind of a misnomer, since it doesn't feel like ur average motel at all. It is conveniently located right on the beach, very quiet, and in walking distance of everything else. All rooms seem to have water views, even the ones... More

The Waves is the place to stay if you have not yet visited Cannon Beach. Location, location, location is clearly excellent with highest possible walking score to shops/restaurants/theatre in the town and is located on the north end of the beach which is not crowded. Walk south on the beach to The Haystack (15mins) and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze... More

This is the best place to stay in Cannon Beach. In the center of town, on the beach, and very comfortable. It's central location allows you to drive to it, walk everywhere, and not get in your car until it's time to leave. The room was cozy with a great king bed and thick, soft linens. The staff was wonderful... More
