Our stay at the waves was so peaceful. The place was beautifully appointed and had virtually everything we needed. The bedding was the most comfortable I've experienced anywhere and I plan on buying my own Comphy sheets now. The fireplace and soaking tub were my favorite addition and our view of the beach was serene. My only complaint was that...

It was so nice when we checked in that we asked to extend our stay! It was clean, comfortable and on a beautiful stretch of Cannon Beach. The staff was very accomodating in getting us the extra night and if we did'nt have to come home we would have stayed even longer. Take advantage of the campfire provisions and build...

We had a wonderful time. The room was great. It was just a few stair steps to the beach. The beach was beautiful and great fun for my whole family. The room was spacious for all of us. The room was also in town so it was easy to shop as well.

Very inviting hotel from 1st sight. Clean and comfortable and great friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely return, and highly recommend to everyone. It's a two minute walk to the beach, at the most. Beach is soft wonderful sand, not rocky. Quaint little town, fun to walk around and good food choices in walking distance.

The hotel is located in the "old town" of Cannon Beach, which is actually the best part of Cannon Beach, in the heart of restaurants, galleries and shops. I asked for an ocean view room and got it. There two buildings that belong to the hotel, facing the ocean in two rows. Go for the building in the first row...

Cannon Beach was a highllight of our trip to Oregon. My husband researched and chose "The Waves" for us to stay at, he couldn't have chosen better. We loved our room, cozy, skylights, table by the amazing view.... A flick-of-the-switch gas fireplace, snacks in the fridge, very friendly staff, the Broncos won, life was good!

My wife and I love the Oregon Coast for summer vacations! This particular visit was sunny and warm. The Waves offers great ocean views with beautiful sunsets! Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Our room had all the necessary amenities and was comfortable and clean.

My large family has never felt so comfortable and rested at the Waves, in Cannon Beach Or! We visit the beach often and the Waves has always been clean and comfortable! The pricing is more than reasonable, considering the quality of the housing units! I highly recommend the Waves as one of the best places to stay at Cannon Beach!

Girl's trip. 6 women living in comfort and peace at the Waves for 5 days. The views from every bedroom, kitchen and living room were amazing. The resort was located close to everything in town. There's a small grocery store nearby for incidentals. We paddle boarded and kayaked on the creek just in front of the ocean. Haystack is a...

The Waves has been a family tradition for over 20 years!! The cleaning staff is efficient and invisible making your stay feel more like home. The front desk has recently gone above and beyond to make sure our stay was all we expected. The main shopping district and restaurants are out your back door and make it the perfect location...
