Reviewed May 31, 2012

The location is unbeatable! We always stay in Room #407 (Flagship King and it's a bottom-floor unit) and it's like home away from home. The sea wall is right outside the room and there is a deck for walking straight out from the room to the beach. The Ecola Creek runs right through the view feeding into the ocean and it's a great place to people watch! The view and the location are amazing. We have stayed in other places in Cannon Beach but, keep returning. The staff is very friendly and attentive as well. The proximity to shopping and dining is unparalleled - just mere steps to great food and coffee shops and sidewalk shopping

Room Tip: Don't be confused by the room numbers and their location within the hotel. For instance, our fa...

We love The Waves accommodations and the staff. They are all great! The location is perfect for the beach and for the town. Wonderful restaurants and shops very close. Fireplace. We've stayed in the Flagship and the one behind it with the hot tub and both were excellent.

We stayed in the flagship room and it had a wonderful view. It was very warm and cozy. Had a nice sized fridge. We loved how it was very quiet and lots of windows.

We loved our Flagship King Studio. We only stayed one night but wished it were more. The beach view is outstanding and the room is very cozy and romantic. I especially loved the sky lights and the sounds of seagulls outside! Top floor on the end....fantastic!~

Fair bed. Nice size of the room. Clean. Gaz fireplace.

We enjoyed very much our room with the view, even if we weren't directly on the beach (304 - the last one of the second row; fair price). We even had the visit of a seagull on our balcony !

We appreciated the kitchen so we bought dinner at a take out restaurant, and brought it back to look at sunset from our room, with a good glass of wine... heaven !

We definetely recommand.

Room Tip: Corner suite on second row have a good view on the sea, for lower price than the ones on waterfront.

We stayed in the Lighthouse Room at the Argonauta portion of The Waves and had a wonderful weekend. The private deck is wonderful and has a lovely view of the ocean. The bed was very comfortable and it was great to have a kitchen so we could eat most meals in. I had hoped there was a bath but the shower was fine as were mostly outside anyway. Simple, clean, great location, good price for the quality, WILL stay there again.

This hotel is nicely laid out with corner rooms and windows that give you an outstanding view of the beach and coast. You can't see the Haystack from here, but thats an easy walk around the bend. It is an easy stroll to some of the downtown shops and restaurants. Well appointed rooms. Be warned though, the gas fireplaces do not have a protective screen, which poses a danger to young children..
