My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend. It was the perfect seaside retreat. Our room was clean and included a fireplace. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The proximity to the beach and the views from our patio really made the cost worth it. The location cannot be beat. I would recommend the Waves...

Very nice and quiet. Not much in terms of creature comforts in basic room, but very clean and perfect location, easy access to downtown, the beach and to Ecola State Park. Great place to rest and launch beach and hiking adventures from. Great selection of movies to choose from front desk.

We stayed 3 days over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. View of the ocean and very good staff. The room was perfect for the 2 of us. Fireplace, small kitchenette and very well located to get everywhere (we never used our car).

I had a great time staying at the Waves in town. I've also stayed at the White Heron. They are my go-to hotel in Cannon Beach. The front desk is very helpful, housekeeping staff are prompt and courteous, and the rooms are clean and well-located. Some of the bathrooms are nicer than others. One element that kept this from being...

Heather, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and for staying with us again. I agree our website, and especially our booking engine, can be difficult to navigate. We are upgrading both through our provider this winter. With 3 properties, 9 unique buildings and 17 different room types we understand this can be hard to navigate. We...

We enjoyed our anniversary this year at the beach and the Waves made the visit fun and most enjoyable. It was our first visit and we will be back. Accommodations were comfortable and the location was perfect. We walked to everything and viewed the ocean when we were back in our room.

We spent three days at the White Heron Lodge, which is part of the Waves in Cannon Beach, Oregon. It was a very nice suite and we had a great time. It is a convenient location that is within walking distance of downtown cannon beach. Highly recommend it!
