Does anyone have a preference over schooners cove or the hallmark inn? Trying to decide between the two for a vacation in august.

Have not been to Schooners, but we love the Hallmark! Rooms are nice, not real fancy, but nice. The view from the oceanfront rooms is spectacular!! Free bike and DVD rentals. Indoor pool. Cookies every afternoon and also free micro popcorn. A drawback for some is that the hotel is on a bluff, so to get down to the beach (and more importantly back up) you have to go down three or four flights of stairs. Just a heads up. Have a great time!

Have stayed at schooners not hallmark. Very nice, clean. Great view. a block from the main street of cannon beach so easy walking. Hallmark a bit of a walk to downtown cannon beach. The one issue with schooners is that while it has a great view you cannot see haystack rock from the room. If you get a room get it as far north in the complex as you can.

I think you will get more amenities at Hallmark. Enjoy your time in beautiful Cannon Beach! :)

Schooners Cove is a bit older construction, which IMO has more character than the present cookie-cutter appearing Hallmark. Each location has its advantages/disadvantages, depending on perspective, but it’s notable that beach access from the Hallmark is down a long flight of stairs from the high bluff on which it sits.

We have stayed at Schooner's Cove. The location is great as it is right on the water and just a block from the heart of downtown. It is an easy walk either along sidewalks or on the beach to get to Haystack Rock. We had no complaints with our stay there, FWIW.
