Rooms are warm and comfortable. We love the fireplace in the room. Rooms are a nice size for a gathering of friends. Love having a private outdoor sitting space attached to the room. Wonderfully accessible to the beach.

My wife and I always try to stay at The Waves when visiting Cannon Beach, but unfortunately rooms aren't always available. That alone should give you a good idea of how good this place is. We have stayed in a handful of the studios, and one of the one bedroom apartments. All of them have been very comfortable, very quiet,...

This is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are very clean and modern. The lighting is very good. There is some noise from the street. We had room 106, and that room was excellent and quiet. The staff was very nice.

The Waves is a lovely place to relax while visiting the Oregon Coast. Their rooms are clean, comfortable and they provide excellent service. The location shares all the conveniences of town to the sand in one short walk.

We stayed at the White Heron. The view of the ocean and beach was wonderful. Our one bedroom with kitchen and living room was on the second floor and had a very tiny balcony. The dish washer needed some work, but we had a great stay here. We were able to walk on the beach and walk to many cute...

In the heart of Cannon Beach, the Waves offered a beautiful view of the ocean and the changing colors of the sky and the beach. This was a family vacation and our adult children and new grand daughter were in the unit above us. This is not luxurious but, clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a clean and...

Based on all the reviews here, we expected a wonderful experience. We had a courtyard king room, not an ocean-side/deck room. The room was clean, but shabby. It was a very small room, especially for the price. Doors to rooms lead directly outside to the parking lot without any interior property security. A single shaky old fashioned handle-lock was the...

Friendly welcome! Room was clean, bed had great mattress and lovely linens. Would have appreciated a comfortable chair in the room, however. The room is on small side, but we were there only one night. Love the location which is within one block of many stores & restaurants as well as the beach. Would love to return!

Wonderful place to stay. My unit was a one bedroom condo with a full kitchen and a private deck. Location, location, location! The unit was clean and in good repair. The entire back wall was glass overlooking the beach and ocean. This unit is the White Heron.

Our stay as always was superior. This is our 20th stay since our honeymoon in 1964! The sea view ambience, the great service, and the cleanliness continue to attract us time and time again! We will be back!
