We often stay at the Waves and always enjoy the property. The location is wonderful, views are awesome and service is always excellent. We often use the fully equipped kitchen and enjoyed the video library in the office this trip at no added cost. We have been coming here for over 30 years and have never had an experience less...

We stayed in the White Heron contemporary duplex and loved it. The updates make the place sparkle. We could sit and watch the waves crash on the shore behind the creek and all its activity. The sunset lit up the sky and lasted for an hour. The unit had a bedroom with a very comfortable king sized bed. The large...

Very spacious room. Not just a cookie-cutter. The room had a lot of character. The staff was very gracious. Can't beat the location to access downtown. It was very nice to watch the stream interact with the high tide.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to provide feedback. I appreciate that you noticed we were not 'cookie cutter' and we love to hear that! Each of our 8 buildings are unique with over 17 different room styles and floor plans. I'm glad to hear you got to see a good tide, it's really something...

We stayed in an ocean front room for a short Valentine retreat from February 12-15. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and had a gas fireplace, TV, DVD player and movies, microwave, small refrigerator, dishes and utensils, coffee pot and toaster were all provided. From our room we had a 3 window view of the ocean. I might add...

Katrina, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to share your feedback. Sounds like you were in one of our upper Flagship Ocean Front units. While our Ocean View buildings have nice views it is hard to be the Ocean Front Flagship panoramic views. In the same building we do have first floor and wheelchair accessible rooms...

Be prepared for an amazing view and to get lost in the serene space. I grew up in Cannon Beach and love the grey stormy weather, however the week I came back "home" to visit all 5 days I woke up to sunny skies and beautiful views. I defininetly recommend staying at the waves in their offsite property that is...

The room was top notch (newly remodeled), clean, and well appointed. This was our first stay, but we will be back. We had a parftial view room, but one or two of our best pictures was taken from that view. The service was great. Had one or two issues, which were handled professionally, and efficiently.

My husband and I were visiting Seattle and decided to drive to Astoria and Cannon Beach one day for the sole purpose of seeing the famous beach where "the Goonies" was partially filmed on. Cannon Beach is a good 40 min drive from Astoria downtown but it's an easy ride. Cannon Beach is an incredibly quaint and sweet little beach...

Enjoyed the warm fireplace after a long walk on the beach. Great view of the ocean out the window. Lots of shops and places to eat within walking distance. Park the car and relax. We didn't use the spa although it did look inviting.

We have stayed at most of the Waves properties starting in the 70's. We always enjoy the rooms and the owners/managers and think of them as friends. Please save our room at White Heron in January Terry Jorgensen
