We have been staying here for many years. We loved our room in the La Colina Building - lovely view, super comfortable bed, nicely remodeled bathroom, and cozy fireplace. Location is perfect for easy access to shops and restaurants. We will be back very soon!

this structure has been remodeled from its 1920's original. The same stairs still exist and are narrow and tall steps that are hard to navigate safely for people with shoe sizes not small. Would not bring our elderly family members here.ONLY for that reason. We did love everything else. Steps away from the beach access AND the main small shops....

We look forward to our stay at the Waves every year during the Stormy Weather Festival. Its been 10 years in a row and they never disappoint us!!!! Rooms are conveniently located to all of the restaurants and shops so you can walk everywhere. The beach view from most rooms is spectacular and you can easily walk on the beach...

This was third trip to The Waves and now it is our new tradition. We love the White Heron Lodge. Very close the the beach and the estuary. Great views and sunsets. We rented both units in the White Heron Lodge for our family vacation.

I'm always happy to stay at the Waves when I'm in Cannon Beach. There is something wonderful about the architecture and the comfort one feels when one is there. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are lovely.

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. It was the perfect seaside retreat. Our room was clean and included a fireplace. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The proximity to the beach and the views from our patio really made the cost worth it. The location cannot be beat. I would recommend the Waves...

Very nice and quiet. Not much in terms of creature comforts in basic room, but very clean and perfect location, easy access to downtown, the beach and to Ecola State Park. Great place to rest and launch beach and hiking adventures from. Great selection of movies to choose from front desk.
