Great condo and service. Very clean and convenient to the coast and coastal view. Great grocery store very close. The rental staff were very knowledgeable and courteous. Clean linens were provided daily. The entire condo was overall very enjoyable.

We had a lovely stay at The Waves Cannon Beach. Aside from our gorgeous view of the beach, the fragrant flowers were in bloom on the grounds and all over town! Simply beautiful! We wanted for nothing, had but to ask and the staff provided. I gave 4 stars because the carpets were dirty but everything else was clean and... More

We stayed in room 305, and it's a gorgeous beach view, fire place, kitchenette. The rooms are clean and the queen bed was very comfy. We stayed a Tuesday night to Wednesday, and Cannon Beach was nice and quiet. Very enjoyable place!! The staff is very friendly and even offer free movies at the front desk.

The staff at The Waves is always welcoming and happy to accommodate. We love the clean and cozy feel of The Waves. For years I rented a house but as the kids got older the space of a home wasn't needed. The Waves has the same feel as being in a home.

We were making our way down the Oregon coast and needed a nice place to stay while in Cannon Beach. The Waves was perfect. It was just what we needed. A clean room and no hassles checking in or out. Thanks again!

We stayed at the waves in August 2016. The service was excellent, always ready to go over and above to make our stay even better! Our room was perfect with a great view of the ocean, brand new bathroom, nice kitchen and fireplace. It is right in the center of the town, walking distance to great restaurants, shops and of...

Our family has stayed at the Waves for 5 generations now. The managers are top-notch and this year even ordered a baby gate to prevent the toddler from walking off the ground floor porch. They had it shipped in two days. They were very accommodating. The place is quiet at night. I recommend visitors bring theur own containers for leftover... More

Everything about The Waves appeared great at first glance. Location is wonderful. The room was very attractive. However a couple of things created some discomfort for us. First, the bathroom fan does not vent outside, but into the room itself. This made the room very hot and steamy all night, even with the windows partially open. We could not open... More

So glad I chose to stay at the waves for my 2 night visit in Cannon Beach. The staff was extremely accommodating and the ocean view room with kitchen and fireplace just perfect. Hiked all day in the surrounding state parks, relaxed to the ocean breeze and a cozy fire after. Don't miss it!

I have stayed at The Waves annually for many years. They are always so accommodating and attentive. I have a particular room I really like, and I always make my reservations for the next year when I leave. Highly recommended.
