Visited in the coldest part of winter and the room was warm and cozy. It was easy walking distance to several restaurants and a brew-pub that had our play-off game. We were surprised that there were so many shops and restaurants compared to our last visit about ten years ago.

Great place for easy access to both town and beach. Park your car and leave it! Everything is within easy walking distance. Comfortable clean rooms. We've been coming here for 20 years and have never been disappointed with the service.

Again a wonderful stay at The Waves. Comfortable, clean, warm room with everything needed and more. We love the view, fireplace and kitchenette. They have also remodeled the bathroom which was also a nice update.

Stayed here for three nights and loved it. Enjoyed the sunsets from the comfort of our ocean-facing room, explored the little downtown, and walked the beach, all without getting in the car for three days. We will definitely be back.

Unit above laundry. Whole room shook during spin cycle. Walls paper thin could hear downstair neighbors. Had to stoop to see out the windows. View of ocean was between two buildings that looked about 10 feet wide. TV remote did work from bed. One bright spot, it had a fire place.

We were only able to stay one of our scheduled three nights because of illness but really liked the remodeled room and amenities. The microwave was missing part of the cover and looked a little tacky and the toilet seat was loose but everything else was great!!

Clean and cozy, just a little bit small for three people, other than that this place is very nice and attractive, just a few steps from the beach. It was a new 2017 year trip and stay and weather was gorges, sunny and calm, the pizza place next to the hotel is a good place to stop by.

This was our second stay at the Waves. We had a wonderful time both visits. Both times were in December. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had an ocean front room each time and enjoyed are stays immensely. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Love the fireplace! We stayed two nights and hope to make it a longer...

Our stay at the waist was perfect. The room was clean the bed was comfortable and the view is great. The kitchenette was fully stocked with pots and dishes. We loved our stay. The location is right on the beach where you can take a walk either south or north along the trail across the bridge.

“If there is any room in your car, bring your own throw pillows for the sofas. Also, there is lots of room on the upper deck, but no lounge chairs. Again, if there is room in the car and you expect great weather, throw in a lounge chair or two.”
