Loved the service. Lots of guest support with the property and things to do around town. Didn't want to leave! Perfect walking location. Clean grounds, great breakfast selections and dining area. My girls loved the fresh cookies, checking out the DVDs for our room, and the wild rabbits around the property.

This room has it all.... Great location, clean and pet friendly..... It comes complete with kitchenette, wine glasses, silverware, hot plate, toaster, etc. everything needed if you would like to stay in for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We couldn't get the remote to work for the TV and Jeff came down and got it all straightened out in no time.... More

Well located, clean, well maintained, nice rooms, comfortable. A bit of road noise but not bad. Wish breakfast was on-site, not up at the Inn at Cannon Beach. Recommend highly for couples and families. Pet friendly in some rooms.

The hotel is located on the main street in Cannon Beach. There was a constant stream of people walking on the street and cars. There is also a restaurant across the street that can be noisy with a group on their patio. The parking spaces are "compact" a small SUV barely fits! The bathroom is in the bedroom. The main...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. As you mentioned, we are located in mid town and walking distance to downtown. During the summer months the foot traffic does increase substantially and we apologize that it was an inconvenience for you. In addition, we are sorry to learn that the group at the restaurant across the street was not... More

This quaint little inn is perfectly located -- a few blocks from downtown and a couple blocks from the ocean. The room was sweet-- a bedroom with a bath and small kitchenette, deck, living area with sleeper sofa. I spent a couple nights there with my son and he said the sleeper was comfy. The queen sized bed in the... More

Loved it. Cute suite and fabulous service. The front desk staff were great, cute bunnies everywhere, and close to the beach. The pull out bed was rather hard but i expected it from a sofa bed. Love love love this inn.

We were trying to find a place to stay in Cannon Beach that was Pet Friendly and with short notice, and stumbled across this GEM of a place! Fortunately, for us they had one room left that was available and pet friendly, too. From the moment we checked in I was impressed! We had such a warm welcome, from the... More

This property was very clean with a modern beach decor. The staff and the little extras made the trip even more of a treat. A beach bucket and a rubber duck for the kiddoes and infused water for mom!!

We loved our stay, felt very welcomed and at home (and so did our child and pup!) Very clean and comfortable. The option of dining in was great with the little kitchen. Short walk to the beautiful beach. Sand buckets for the kids and dog treats for the pup was a nice touch. We can't wait to return!
