I wasn't sure what to expect but the pics I'd seen of the suite didn't do it justice - they're very clean, fresh, new feeling (maybe they are new!?) cozy with lots of nice wood detailing. Convenient location close to town centre and beach, and the hotel provides lovely breakfasts which came in real handy, access to the gym down... More

The inn was adequate for a two-night stay thanks to a Living Social deal. Very close to the beach. Super nice front desk staff. Decent breakfast. However, Unit 27 is not soundproof (we could hear occupants on the upper floor), internet connection was very slow and non-existent at times, and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Bathroom had a jetted... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. We appreciate the kind words about our front desk staff! We are, however, disappointed to hear that you didn’t have a great stay. We will certainly look into the Wi-Fi issues that you experienced. We were experiencing some issues with Charter during that time and are... More

Excellent, friendly staff, comfortable, clean room, and fantastic location! The sleeper sofa was so comfy, a Tempurpedic mattress, and if have NEVER said that about a convertible couch. Great selection of DVDs, and the chocolate muffins at breakfast are addictive.

Friendly, pleasant and cost-effective accommodations in Cannon Beach. No view, but an easy walk to the beach. The room was a bit rustic but clean and comfortable. Just be aware that you need a car or a trolley ride to get to the center of town, or to get to the included breakfast. Be sure to get to Ecola State... More

Everything was nice except the size of the room. It was tiny compared to what I was expecting from the pictures on the website. I had to sleep on the sofa as there was not room enough for the roll-away and the hide-a-bed to be pulled out. The location was close to shopping, etc.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are sorry that we didn’t make it clear that our rooms are not large enough for both a roll away and the hide-a-bed. We have certainly learned from your experience and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience. More

Our family had a wonderful time at The Lighthouse Inn. Our one bedroom suite was very clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the grounds of the main inn were lovely. My three year old especially enjoyed the bunnies hopping through the grounds and the always available free cookies. While The Lighthouse is not directly on... More

We stayed here as it was a little less expensive than the main property and a little closer to town, and still had a separate bedroom for privacy. It was spacious and clean. No frills. No air conditioner. Fan available. 2 tvs. DVD player. Maintenance responsive to straighten out some confusion with our tv remotes. Nice proximity to the beach,... More
