Cannon Beach was a highllight of our trip to Oregon. My husband researched and chose "The Waves" for us to stay at, he couldn't have chosen better. We loved our room, cozy, skylights, table by the amazing view.... A flick-of-the-switch gas fireplace, snacks in the fridge, very friendly staff, the Broncos won, life was good!

My wife and I love the Oregon Coast for summer vacations! This particular visit was sunny and warm. The Waves offers great ocean views with beautiful sunsets! Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Our room had all the necessary amenities and was comfortable and clean.

My large family has never felt so comfortable and rested at the Waves, in Cannon Beach Or! We visit the beach often and the Waves has always been clean and comfortable! The pricing is more than reasonable, considering the quality of the housing units! I highly recommend the Waves as one of the best places to stay at Cannon Beach!

Girl's trip. 6 women living in comfort and peace at the Waves for 5 days. The views from every bedroom, kitchen and living room were amazing. The resort was located close to everything in town. There's a small grocery store nearby for incidentals. We paddle boarded and kayaked on the creek just in front of the ocean. Haystack is a...

The Waves has been a family tradition for over 20 years!! The cleaning staff is efficient and invisible making your stay feel more like home. The front desk has recently gone above and beyond to make sure our stay was all we expected. The main shopping district and restaurants are out your back door and make it the perfect location...

We really enjoyed our stay over the long labour day weekend. The rooms were very clean, lovely beds, and all the other amenities were very good also. Loved the heat lamp in the bathroom! We would've rated this property excellent but we felt that the noise level of moving vehicles outside our window was at time bothersome. Unfortunately early Sunday...

The Waves is in a great location. We had a wonderful 1 bedroom room. The room was clean and comfortable and the Murphy bed was ideal for our family of 4. We also had a partial view from our room. The location can't be beat it is right in the town.

Rooms are warm and comfortable. We love the fireplace in the room. Rooms are a nice size for a gathering of friends. Love having a private outdoor sitting space attached to the room. Wonderfully accessible to the beach.

My wife and I always try to stay at The Waves when visiting Cannon Beach, but unfortunately rooms aren't always available. That alone should give you a good idea of how good this place is. We have stayed in a handful of the studios, and one of the one bedroom apartments. All of them have been very comfortable, very quiet,...
