For our September getaway we stayed in unit 300, which is the 2 bedroom apartment near the Southwind group. Terrific for me and my travel buddy, as we had some privacy but could share the basics (and split the cost!). For us it was a perfect location - a short block to Hemlock Street, and a short block to the... More

Ocean view was beautiful! Kitchenette with everything you need, fireplace for ambiance, porch with table and chairs to relax and enjoy the view. Nice table and bench seats inside the window facing the ocean....you can even see the ocean while lying in bed! Short walk to Haystack.

This was a birthday getaway celebration with long time girlfriends. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place! Staff was friendly, every thing was clean and modern. The best part was the view! We loved the patio and just being able to sit outside after enjoying a fun filled day and relax and be on the beach front. The other bonus... More

Wife and I just finished an anniversary week staying at the The Waves in Cannon Beach. The staff and employees there are terrific! The room was fantastic and if we needed anything they were helpful and polite. The room was great and the view amazing! We had several lazy mornings drinking coffee and just looking outside. Thank you for a... More

We have been visiting the Oregon coast annually for SEVERAL years. We reserve the Waves a year in advance because of the wonderful beach and view. The service is great - people are friendly, location can't be beat and this year we had the most wonderful weather!

We enjoyed the location. Close to the beach and in town. We almost didn't come to Cannon Beach because the lodging rates were higher. But we did enjoy our stay. We were there when the electricity was lost. We made the best of it and ate at the pizza place down the street.

Great location, close to beach and downtown bars, restaurants, and shops. The cabin had everything we needed, and was tidy and the beds were comfortable. The check-in process was easy, and the desk attendant was very pleasant and helpful.

The Waves is a nice place to stay, and has quick and easy access to shopping and the beach. We stayed in the King Suite with an ocean view. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It was a good experience.

Booking was easy and front desk was helpful. One day stay was very pleasant. Nice clean room with ocean view and close to beach. The address not quite right. It directed to a restaurant. Needs to be fixed.

My second stay and it was as wonderful as the first. La Colina Loft is a cozy space with a great view off the deck. The fire place adds to the coast atmosphere. The staff are warm, electing & helpful. I'll be back again & again.
