My husband, myself and our adult son vacationed at the Waves in August prior to a wedding and had a very enjoyable time. The condo was very spacious and clean. I was surprised that the kitchen was rather bare. Other condos that I have rented had some basic spices, I would have brought them along from NJ if I had...

Where or how should I start? OH! CANNON BEACH OH CANNON BEACH HOW BEAUTIFUL IS YOUR SHORE!!! The Waves was peaceful, clean, perfect place for a nice, short, relaxing honey moon. Just steps from the beach, we walked, sat, eat, bird watched, people watched. ETC. Fire place was lovely. There was recurring visitor, Johnathan Livingston Seagull and the eagle that...

We had a very good 1 night stay as a family of 3 in mid-October 2016. The only reason that I gave 4 stars in this review is there is not an option to 4.5 stars and I don't believe its a 5 star as our beds could have been a bit better. Overall this is a very nice hotel,...

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Cannon Beach and absolutely loved it. I believe we stayed in the Queen suite on the third floor facing the ocean. We had a gas fireplace, sky lights, balcony and tiny kitchen area (no stove, which was fine). I thought the room was so cozy and welcoming. I told my husband I...

I would definitely stay again. Clean. Need signage for laundry and hot tub. Great location! 4 stars only because needs a little updating. The beach is so beautiful, so please pay for a room with a view. The room descriptions on the website are very helpful and accurate.

We have been to Cannon Beach & The Waves many times. Each stay is even better than the last.. Friendly, helpful staff and excellent accommodations. Even during bad weather there are breaks to launch my "kite" on the beach. Hard to do that in the big city.

Fantastic location and beautiful views with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! And they have a nice library of movies on DVD to choose from to bring back to your room. Downside: hotel office has limited hours and my mini-fridge was broken.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Waves. Not only an excellent ocean view but watching a large group of birds, mostly sea gulls I think, added a lot to the experience. For some reason they took off as group on occasion, circled around and then landed again near their prior location --- always near the edge of incoming...
