We came into our spotless room while the sun was starting to set. We walked a few blocks over to dinner with a perfect view of the ocean. We went to bed and watched the sunset on the ocean while sipping wine from our balcony. We slept like a dream on the soft bed and clean sheets. We woke up... More

We had a wonderful view from our room. The room was comfortable and updated. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was free parking which was very helpful. The Waves is walking distance from the beach and all of the downtown shops and restaurants. You couldn't ask for a better location! We will definitely return!

We have been staying at The Waves on and off for nearly 40 years - even before they were as great as they are now. Our most recent trip was very comfortable as usual - ocean view and so convenient to everything we wanted to do - restaurants, breweries and walking the beach...and shopping. The folks who run the front... More

We stopped here for one night on our way down the coast. It could stand to be updated, but it was quite clean, and we had everything we needed. There is a kitchenette with dishes and utensils. You can't beat the location. It's steps from the beach and from downtown. It's not what I would choose for a family vacation,... More

We were received with a warm welcome. Every attempt was made to meet our wishes. However, the room was much smaller and more poorly equipped than we would have liked, but very clean. The TV was almost impossible to operate as one had to stand directly in front of it and point to a particular corner to change channels. There... More

We enjoyed staying at The Waves in Cannon Beach. The view of the ocean from our room was beautiful, and the room had all of the amenities necessary for a weekend getaway. The fireplace in the room was a nice touch and we really appreciated that we were able to purchase wood to have a fire on the beach!

This was our 5th year, and we're already planning our 6th. Love this hotel and their staff! The location is perfect to hit the beach quickly, grab a pizza or coffee in town, and to see amazing sunsets.

About 20 family members came together at The Waves for a family reunion and had a fantastic time. Several of us stayed in oceanfront flagship suites, which became the gathering places for the larger group. Our recently renovated unit was spacious and nicely furnished, with a magnificent view of the beach from the living room, deck and lawn. Those who... More
