We have been visiting the Oregon coast annually for SEVERAL years. We reserve the Waves a year in advance because of the wonderful beach and view. The service is great - people are friendly, location can't be beat and this year we had the most wonderful weather!

We enjoyed the location. Close to the beach and in town. We almost didn't come to Cannon Beach because the lodging rates were higher. But we did enjoy our stay. We were there when the electricity was lost. We made the best of it and ate at the pizza place down the street.

Great location, close to beach and downtown bars, restaurants, and shops. The cabin had everything we needed, and was tidy and the beds were comfortable. The check-in process was easy, and the desk attendant was very pleasant and helpful.

The Waves is a nice place to stay, and has quick and easy access to shopping and the beach. We stayed in the King Suite with an ocean view. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It was a good experience.

Booking was easy and front desk was helpful. One day stay was very pleasant. Nice clean room with ocean view and close to beach. The address not quite right. It directed to a restaurant. Needs to be fixed.

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.
