“No AC expensive room.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

We paid $900 for two night and the room was hot. No AC on the property. Great location though. They do have a fan in the closet if your ok with that. It was just an ok for the too. Some do not mind sleeping when it is hot but I don't feel that for the price was worth the temp in the room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This was our first trip to Cannon Beach so we were not sure what to expect. This resort was recommended to us by another resort in town since they had no vacancy and we were traveling with a small dog. Positives: Fantastic location on the beach with easy beach access on either side of the resort. Very close to Haystack Rock. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and well appointed with a small refrigerator, microwave, dishes, table and chairs, sofa bed, flat screen TV, DVD player, iPhone radio/alarm clock/charger. Great and abundant services: Indoor pool, gym, a la carte items such as purchase of robes, chocolates, flowers at reasonable prices. Love the fact you can be set up for a bon fire on the beach. L'Occitane bath amenities - but what you expect for the price. We paid nearly $400 for an ocean front King room. They have activities seems each day and warm cookies in the afternoon. The front desk staff is efficient, helpful and very welcoming. They even welcome the pets on a sign in the lobby. Amenities for the pooch included bowls, place mat, lightly padded blanket, towels and treats. Bath wash available on side of resort. Negatives: small balcony and closed in, expected more open balconies as in photo. With all windows open the room was warm, it was much cooler outside in the evening than in our room. No AC, poor ventilation. Would be nice with at least ceiling fans, we discovered a fan in the closet as we were leaving. We would stay here again but we'll know there is a fan next time.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor away from the elevator.

The resort is right on the beach or a few hundred steps away o you cant get any better than that. The resort is clean and well appointed however, our room had no air conditioning and no air circulation which meant it was very hot and stuffy even though it wasn't really warm outside. Beds are memory foam so they are very tough to move in, soft yes, but difficult to sleep in all night as it was warm and those beds tend to be on the warmer side. Staff were friendly. Bathroom toilet seat was not the right one for the toilet and was worn. It really was very misplaced given how nicely the room was decorated. Overall I might consider staying here again but I would have to ensure there was air conditioning in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. Even rooms behind main building have partial view of the ocean.

Excellent location and perfect view of Haystack Rock. Ask for a room on the third floor -- definitely NOT in the basement. We were in room 301 -- perfect with fireplace and great view. Only disadvantage was the the fireplace stayed very warm even after turning it off -- maybe need some air conditioning which normally wouldn't be needed since it's on the chilly side there. We had evening turn-down service (no charge) and got a handful of chocolate mints instead of the usual one each. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and neat.

Room Tip: Third floor for the best view.

This hotel knows how to wow you with the little touches. From the sliding door from the jacuzzi bath tub to the main room to freshly baked cookies in the lobby, Surfsand leaves no whole for improvement! The beds additionally were spectacular...and the sheets OH-SO-SOFT!

From the porch of the Ocean front rooms, you are able to walk right out to the beach. Or if the weather is poor, you can just hang fire-side from your room and watch the waves roll in in perfect comfort.

This is a hotel that you will not want to leave!

This property is right on the beach and in front of Haystack Rock. It is very clean and upscale for a nice beachfront price point. There are lots of activities and additional perks for kids. They offer akid's club for eating and activities. Also great that the Wayfarer restaurant is just walking across the parking lot. The only downer is that they have requirements for a 3 night minimum stay. Don't rely on their website to make a reservation. Call them directly, and keep calling. They often have 1 or 2 night avail abilities that they can fill in between the 3 night reservations. We were able to get a one stay on a Friday for two rooms. Just keep trying.

Room Tip: Bring some of your own snacks/drinks from the grocery. Stores and restaurants close early in Cannon...

I loved this hotel! We were greeted and checked in promptly at the front desk and given all the information we needed to enjoy our stay at the hotel. We had a “partial ocean view room” that had a great view of Haystack Rock. The beach is so close and just absolutely stunning. The grounds have many beautiful flowers planted throughout and are well maintained. The room was very nice and provided all the modern comforts. We enjoyed the large screen TV and watched a movie on one of the channels. The front desk also has complimentary DVDs that you can check out. The bathroom was particularly luxurious with a large soaking tub, separate walk-in shower, and a TV with a remote control. The toilet has its own little room with a door. We stayed on a Sunday night and availed ourselves of the complimentary hot dog cookout they had down at the beach. Later we had them set up a private campfire with all the fixing for smores for $25. It was a very enjoyable evening on the beach. My only wish while staying here was that we stayed more than one night. I will definitely return and stay longer next time.
