“Classic, Comfortable Charmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have visited this hotel for more than 30 years--and it has never looked better! Built in the 1940s, the suites at the Ecola Creek Lodge exude charm. We stayed in the one-bedroom Turret Suite with a large living room and cozy kitchen. The koi pond and occasional visiting bunny only add to the ambience. If you're looking for ultra-modern, then this isn't the spot for you. But if you want a warm, inviting place with vintage appeal and modern amenities (like wifi), this is the spot. The pet-friendly rooms are fine, but the real value is in the one- and two-bedroom suites with fireplaces that face the front. We could not have been more comfortable, and it's only a five-minute walk to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for the one- or two-bedroom suites that face the front.

We decided to head to Cannon Beach as a last minute trip over the labour day weekend. To those who have not visited Cannon Beach, the town in high season is extremely busy and very expensive (normally we tend to visit in the off season). The only hotel listed with space was the Ecola Creek Lodge and the price of $109 made this hotel less expensive than what we usually end up paying at other hotels in Cannon Beach during low season, so we hoped for the best. The room (regular queen) was very clean, a good size and in good shape. We had a balcony which had a bit of an ocean view. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a guest laundry facility, the office has coffee and other hot drinks available. The hotel itself is on the Ecola Park side, so just north of the Cannon Beach downtown area. We were pleasantly surprised with the Lodge and would reccomend to those with families (there were many families staying at the lodge during our visit) and we would also reccomend the lodge to those who don't want to be on the downtown strip. We found that for us it was a bit far from the main beach as we have a young family and many sand toys.

The lodge is located 5 minutes away from the beach. You have no direct view on the see.
The room is spacy and we had a gas fire place and a seperate room with a fridge and cupboard.
The manager is very helpfull and friendly. Great! They even printed our ticket I gave them via an usb stick. I never expected such a nice lodge for this price.
I recommend this lodge if you do not need a pool or spa. If I ever come back to cannon beach I will stay there again.

I really enjoyed staying at this lodge while in Cannon Beach. The management is extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are very spacious and clean. It feels like you're at home here with many great adventures awaiting at your doorstep. Internet available and within walking distance to the beach and the main strip! Also hiking trails just behind it and it is very close to Ecola State Park which I highly recommend checking out! Worth every reasonable penny.

We just returned from a three night stay at the Ecola Creek Lodge. This was our third stay and enjoyed it just as much as the last time. Each room is unique. It is a great place to stay while visiting Cannon Beach. It is easy walking to the beach and the town, but far enough away to miss the noise and traffic. The staff is very accomodating and provide morning hot drinks and afternoon warm cookies in the lobby. Most rooms do not have an ocean view. The room we had was 17 and looks at the center lawn and koi pond area from a small private deck.

This is a home away from home. We stayed for our wedding 7/20-7/22 2012 in room 8 the turret room. It was really cute and charming. We had all of our wedding party stay here and each room was decorated differant and they all had charm from what I saw. The staff was friendly and accomedated us with an early check in which was very kind (since I needed to steam my wedding dress). It was adorable and we enjoyed our stay. The bunnies running around the grounds added a lot of charm. I dont want anyone to get confused by my review because I like to provide honest feedback. If you are looking for something on the beach or a resort this isnt where you want to stay no spa services etc. If you want a home away from home a steps away from the beach and friendly staff then come and stay here the fireplaces in the rooms give it a very warm touch. It is very cozy and comfertable. Thank you!

After a 4 day stay in Portland, we headed to our next destination, the Oregon Coast. After some researching on the internet, we booked a two night stay at The Ecola Creek Lodge in Cannon Beach. This hotel is located right off Highway 101 (a beautiful, scenic drive to the beach). There is a bit of traffic noise, depending on your room's location, but it's pretty quiet for the most part. Don't forget to bring a jackets and pants. It was pretty cool while we were there! (in July)

Ecola Creek Lodge is believed to be located on the very spot where Lewis and Clark's expedition set up camp. Ecola was the Indian word for whale, and Clark named the stream Ecola Creek. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The office has coffee, tea, and cookies and an awesome, DVD rental collection with super new movies, to some classic films. Outside, the lodge looks cabin and rustic, quite appropriate for its location. We had Room 1, which was a one bedroom with pull out sleeper couch. Each room has a fireplace (a nice touch...we were cold!) flat panel tv, kitchen with lots of kitchen essentials, microwave, stove, fridge, sink, and a huge master bedroom. The decor is a little dated, but clean and usable. There wasn't A/C, but with the cool temperatures, you just need to open your window for a nice breeze. I loved the La Fresh makeup towelettes! There is free wifi; it was slow at times, but still nice to have during our stay. The beds were super comfy and our parents didn't mind sleeping on the couch. (They insisted!)

The Ecola Creek Lodge is within walking distance to downtown Cannon Beach. You should probably drive so you don't have to worry about finding parking. There's lots of shops, and restaurants, and a short walk to beautiful Cannon Beach. There are plenty of nature trails for the hiking enthusiasts, so there's something for everyone. If you're looking for groceries, there's a Safeway 15 minutes away by car. The staff here is super nice and helpful. I felt welcomed and relaxed during my stay in Cannon Beach. Hopefully I'll return to this quiet beach town!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the main road. See you if you could get a room with a "vie...
