“Weekend retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Great location! Great access to the beach. Friendly staff. The room we had could use a good preventative maintenance scheduling. The beds were a bit hard. There was no on site convenience sundries on site, but had a great pool and spa. A BBQ was on site. The biggest downfall was they charge a rental fee for a DVD, and it is more than $3.00. All in all, it was very a great price for the nice weather we had for the perfect weekend getaway.

When I travel the West Coast I like to stay at the Tolovana Inn in Cannon Beach. It's a clean, quiet,comfortable and well staffed. The wonderful location has a view of the famous Haystack Rock. The rock is 235 feet and is the home to many nesting birds, like puffins and cormorants. The tidal pools are teeming with invertebrates such as crabs and sea stars. This makes a great place for families to explore the great outdoors. Next door is located the almost equally famous Mo's restuarant. Easy access to the beach opens the day or evening to long walks, At night you can build camp fires on the beach and roast marshmellows. I travel with my Therapy dog and am always looking for the best place for both of us. You will not be disappointed and neither will your dog. They have a nice lawn area for the dogs relief and they even furnish the poo bags. There are also a few free roaming rabbits on the property which are fun to watch.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with the full view of the beach. The partial is still good.

The Tolovana Inn is located on the Oregon Beach in the tourist city of Cannon Beach. It is very reasonable, with the usual conflicts of design.

1) the room sleeps 2, but only seats 1 unless the other chooses to work at the desk.

2) If somebody is working at the desk, the person in the comfortable chair needs to be pretty small in order to get from their chair to the bathroom.

3) It looks like the room was designed to have a small bay with a coffee bar above a refrigerator. Since the refrigerator was not included, you have some interesting "how do I use this space" questions.

4) As a beach located hotel, they nicely include 4 towels for the 2 people. But, since there are only racks for 2 towels, they put the other 2 on top of the shower curtain holder. So, if you wish to take a shower, you now need to figure out where you'd like to put the spare towels.

Otherwise, the room was clean and neat, staff very friendly, bed slept fine. A restaurant is in walking distance, but if you're willing to drive, the area has a wide variety of choices.

We had a few days extra to spend in this area of Oregon and decided to get a room at the Tolovana Inn. The room was small but very comfortable. Indoor pool and whirlpool were just the ticket after long hikes along the beaches. Very clean and confortable place to say. If we have the opportunity to stay in this area again for a longer period of time, we would like to check out their condos.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not by the parking area.

Loved the view and our rooms, but the check-in was slow and our room mixed up. When we checked out the bill was incorrect. Nancy told us she would call after she talked to the night auditor, but she never did. Several days later we found our credit card had been charged. We wouldn't stay here again just based on the front desk. They were friendly but slow and didn't follow up.

Room Tip: The southern beach view was more private. No view of Haystack which we didn't need.

My husband and I drove through Cannon Beach eyeballing the "fancy" hotels and calling frantically as the sunset. We wanted to walk on that beautiful beach as the sun set, but, couldn't seem to find anything that was suitable yet affordable.
As I was on hold, my husband ran into the hotel to check availability and rates, VIOLA, we hit hit the jackpot.
We were provided a wonderful ocean view room, newly renovated, re-decorated. The room had a fireplace and a Murphy bed, no carpet, all laminate (much easier to deal with sand). Great kitchen, all utensils provided, including the toaster. The mini stero with I-pod capadibilty was a bonus, as was the free wi-fi.
All of this, and, miles of unspoiled, unpopulated beaches. The area is absolutely beautiful and unspoiled.
We found our stay quiet and relaxing. The room was fantastic, the rate very affordable. The Murphy bed was comfortable and the furnishings abundant.
We're looking forward to our next trip to the Oregon coast and won't think twice as we pass the the other hotels and head to room 206 at the Tovolana Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room.
