I have been visiting Cannon Beach for over 40 years. It never seems to get stale. Love staying at the Waves because it is within walking distance to everything. Units are super clean and updated. Staff is friendly and accommodative.

This property is the perfect location. Right on the beach, and just steps from the town. Rooms are clean and spacious. Its perfect for a special occasions, like an anniversary or birthday weekend. Its a bit pricey to just go and chill on the beach for a weekend. But definitely worth a splurge for a memorable celebration.

Lovely spacious view suite suitable for four or six, but we were only two wandering the coast in the offseason. Reasonable price, excellent location in the town of Cannon Beach. Most of the restaurants were closed early but we could have gone shopping and prepared our own food in the well stocked kitchen.

Finally, my wife and I were able to make time by ourselves and what better way to spend it then at Cannon Beach and the Wave hotel. Our room was excellent in all ways, cleanliness, the view, the location in town, and the location so close to the beach. We had an excellent time without our kids on this 3-day...

We recently stayed at the Waves Motel downtown Cannon Beach. We go back to the Waves again and again because of breathtaking views of the ocean, excellent customer service and location of the motel which is downtown. It's a wonderful place to stay and we appreciate the warm greeting and clean rooms!

Stayed in the 2nd row but had some ocean view. Rooms were roomy, comfortable and clean. It was nice that our bathroom had separate vanity area from the shower/toilet. Porch to sit on and enjoy the sun when it made it's way out for awhile. Great queen-sized Murphy bed instead of sofa bed or cots. Staff very friendly and helpful....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Waves, the accommodations were great and staff were helpful and pleasant, would come back again next visit to Oregon. Great proximity to the beach, enjoyed the fireplace and restaurants and shopping was close at hand.
