Of course you must realize that you are staying at a very popular ocean destination...Cannon Beach. Having said that, you have to get over the shock of what hotels can charge to stay there. Because it is Cannon Beach, you will want to pay for the "experience" of being there, not the cheapest place you can find. The experience will be what you pay for it.
The Waves is a great value for that experience. The front deck looks across the street and to the ocean. The access for the beach is about 30 feet from where we stayed (room 302). There were all of the accomodations for cooking or bringing something back to dine on. But, of course, we chose to have snacks at the table looking out at the ocean and the other meals were at restaurants around town.
There is a gas fireplace in the room for a wonderful atmosphere in the evening. We even found a hot tub about 2 minutes from us on the property that was wonderful in the cool evenings.
The service was seamless and the people in the office were friendly and bent over backwards to accomodate.
My wife grew up close to Cannon Beach and so I was a little nervous that in choosing the hotel for us, I was hoping that returning there would be a great experience for her. She said she had never stayed as close to the beach as a child. The Waves Hotel made her time there enchanting and full of memories renewed.
