Nice room. Fireplace in the room was a huge plus on a cold coastal weekend. The location is perfect right downtown near great shopping and restaurants. View of the ocean while laying in bed was magnificent.

My wife and I love Cannon Beach and decided last minute to spend the night there. We booked a king room with an ocean view at The Waves through TripAdvisor. Check in was really quick and easy, we were even able to check in early which was nice. The location is excellent! Our room was practically on the beach. The...

We loved our visit to The Waves, Cannon Beach this past weekend. This time of year there are not so many people and we got great weather. Our Condo was lovely, it had everything we needed, I loved the extra comfortable bed and good sheets. We spoke with Paula at the front desk and she was very friendly and accommodating....

Visited in the coldest part of winter and the room was warm and cozy. It was easy walking distance to several restaurants and a brew-pub that had our play-off game. We were surprised that there were so many shops and restaurants compared to our last visit about ten years ago.
