This was our third trip to Oregon in the past 14 months and, thanks to The Waves, it was the best!! Our one-bedroom suite, which had a magnificent view over the beach and ocean, had top class amenities and was just a few steps from the eclectic shops of Cannon Beach. Whether you desire a private getaway for just the... More

My husband and I haven't had the best of year up to this point and we needed some time to just get away. We had stumbled across The Waves a couple of years ago and I knew this is just where I wanted to go. Cannon Beach is a quite little town that has shops and restaurants all within walking... More

Stayed at the White Heron Lodge #605. The 1 bedroom suite was very spacious and had a great ocean view from the living area. Very convenient to step out the back door onto the beach and have your own campfire. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings were nice. I would have prefered a Blue Ray DVD player since that's...

We took advantage of a Groupon deal and spent my birthday in Canon Beach at the Waves. We had an incredible view from our balcony!! The fireplace in the room made it extra romantic.(-: It was within walking distance of the town which was super adorable with many wonderful shops and Ecola State Park was only a 5 minute drive...

This was the first time my husband and I have stayed here and the room was wonderful. It was so relaxing and cozy. The view was amazing. We were able to walk to town come back turn on the look at the ocean and watch the sunsent. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Cannon Beach.

We recently spent two nights at The Waves in Cannon Beach. Our room was in the La Colina building. Out room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the River Rock fireplace. We enjoyed our free bottle of wine on the deck, had fun watching the kite fliers. Beautiful sunset the first night, but the rain showed up the second... More

My friend and I road-tripped out to Cannon Beach from Washington and found the Waves hotel pretty late at night. They had a room for us that was big, clean, and really comfortable, and they gave us a little discount since it was already past 10 PM. The location is awesome, right in the middle of tons of shops and... More

Of course you must realize that you are staying at a very popular ocean destination...Cannon Beach. Having said that, you have to get over the shock of what hotels can charge to stay there. Because it is Cannon Beach, you will want to pay for the "experience" of being there, not the cheapest place you can find. The experience will... More

Your wives memories are renewed and you are the hero. We are happy that both of you found the right location to live those dreams and enjoy the "experience" that Cannon Beach has. Because Cannon Beach provides a "village atmosphere" verses the "highway strip" many people share your feelings making this area a very desirable destination. We thank you for... More

We just got back from staying 3 nights in the La Colina building at The Waves. All the rooms are ocean view in this building. We were very pleased with the size and amenities of the unit. We enjoyed sunset views all three nights. We just walked across a driveway and down some steps to the beach and Hemlock (downtown)... More

My wife had stayed at The Waves with a group of friends a couple of years ago. She had wanted me to experience it with her. We stayed two nights, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. We opted for one of the king suites, and I highly recommend it. The view was just marvelous, and the room was very... More

I am glad that your wife was persistent in having you share her experience.
