My husband and I booked The Waves for a few nights in the peak of the season (August). Places were filling up fast so I felt lucky to have gotten it reserved. There was a minimum night stay. The Waves is part of group of beach lodging options owned by same company. We were greeted at the office and he...

We rented all four units at the White Heron Victorian. We usually stay more toward downtown, but this location a bit further up Ecola creek is not only beautiful but also very quiet and peaceful. The creek is a good spot for children to play in the water because compared to the ocean it is fairly calm and can warm...

We love the rooms ... Especially with a view, a table., couple of chairs and a balcony! The people at the desk are awesome as well! It is centrally located and that makes it handy for walking & eating.

Staying at the Waves is a wonderful escape in a comfortable unit on the beach with beautiful views of the sunsets at night. The spacious unit provides all the needs that a person needs and it is close to walking to town and the restaurants. The staff is friendly and it makes for spending your time with them enjoyable. Can't...

The Waves surpassed expectations. It has a super location -- its front yard is the beach, and the views from the rooms are awesome. Our room was small but beautifully designed and well maintained. CB's charming main street is just a block away. All in all, a vacation spot to return to over and over.

Upon arrival in the room, we noticed that the bathroom had a musty unpleasant odor in the room. No windows to open, so we asked for some air freshener and that did not arrive until the next day when WE had to pick it up at the office. Secondly, the kitchen area should be better supplied for cooking. We only...

We stayed at the Wavws during a hot spell at Cannon Beach. While there is no air conditioning, there is always a good breeze that could cool off the room. The doors open on both ends (entry and deck) and that created good airflow. Our room was on the second floor and in the second row of buildings with a...

My wife and I stayed at Cannon Beach's "Waves" beachfront accommodations for three nights in early August. The accommodations were grand except that our battery on the remote control for the TV didn't work and still didn't work after a new battery was installed by the manager. That was really a minor inconvenience since the area around the hotel kept...

The Condo was south of town about 1.5 miles, but the view and access to the ocean was great. There is a brand new market close by that has everything from wine to fresh fruit & vegetables. Quiet and relaxing.
