My second stay and it was as wonderful as the first. La Colina Loft is a cozy space with a great view off the deck. The fire place adds to the coast atmosphere. The staff are warm, electing & helpful. I'll be back again & again.

Beautiful view from our unit on the 2nd floor. We loved the fact that on one side of the driveway into the facility was a great pizza parlor and kitty corner a great coffee shop. Main street is just around the corner with charming shops. All in all, a wonderful getaway for the weekend. The Oregon Coast was showing off...

Wonderful room. Clean, great amenities, great view and quiet. Corner room and comfortable bed and pillows. Friendly staff and perfect hotel location. I highly recommend The Waves. it would be nice to allow pets, but it would be hard to keep the rooms so great with pets I assume.

This was our second year staying at the Waves in Sept. Last year we stayed in the largest oceanfront suite with friends which was a great deal. This year we stayed in the King view room for a relaxing weekend together. We love being in town and ocean front.

We were looking out over the beach, listened to the waves. Bed was lovely. The room could use a little love, some worn spots, but nothing major. We'll go back. Everything within walking distance, restaurants, bars, shops, and the beach is right there.

Lovely room overlooking the ocean... great view of the lighthouse and Ecola River and just a couple blocks from main street Cannon Beach but far enough away for peace and solitude. My room (a Queen Loft) had a nice river rock fireplace, small breakfast table, microwave and refrigerator, as well as coffee pot. It had everything I needed! Be prepared,...

This property is so conveniently located to the shopping, beach and good restaurants. The accommodations are consistently clean and the staff very welcoming. We especially like the kitchen facilities with a full oven and stove, microwave and refrigerator. One could easily stay for a long term in the beautifully decorated rooms with Jacuzzi.

It was a great location on the beach and central to restaurants and shops. We did not move the car during the weekend. Rooms were clean and staff was nice. We would definitely return to stay on our next visit to this area of the Oregon Coast.
