“So relaxing that even bunnies choose to hang out here all the time.”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

We just got back from two nights at the Ecola Creek Lodge and were very pleased with our decision to stay there. The grounds were lovely; there's a koi pond in the courtyard and rabbits dot the ground, presumably helping out with the yard work (or working on their nourishment, you choose). The lodge is located on the edge of the town of Cannon Beach; it's about a five to seven minute walk into the shops in town and about a three minute walk from the beach.

We stayed in the turrent room, which features a large fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a comfortable sofa, two chairs, a new Vizio TV and a desk. The bathroom wasn't as up to date as the rest of suite, but it was very clean and the water pressure of the shower was fabulous. The bedroom was quiet and comfortable as well. Wi-Fi is free, and the Lodge offers 24 hour DVD and game loans. There's also a game room for kids (check with staff for hours), vending, and a laundry facility on-site.

The lodge is also located down the street from Ecola State Park--the viewing area at sunset is possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in all my travels.

The bottom line: there are more expensive places to stay in Cannon Beach that may be newer, but this is a beautiful, comfortable, well-maintained property that will give you excellent bang for you buck.

My girlfriend and I stayed here last September and had a great time. The front desk staff were super nice and very helpful. The grounds were very well kept and the place was in good shape. The room was modest, nothing too fancy but certainly suited our needs. Best part was our little deck and enjoying the morning sun looking over the gardens. This place isn't on the water nor is it right in the heart of town but a casual 5 minute walk will get you to either. We'll be back for sure...

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor and could hear the people above us walking around a little... I suggest...

We have been going to Cannon Beach for over 20 years and have always wanted to stay at the Ecola Creek Lodge, it looks so cute. I waited until Thursday before Labor Day weekend to decide to go to the beach. It was last minute so I didn't have a choice of rooms and ended up with room #12 which has an entrance in the parking lot, which I was informed of when I made the reservation. I was happy that even though the entrance was in the parking lot that the entrance had been constructed so that when you opened the door you didn't look into the parking lot and people in the parking lot didn't look into the room, it had a little "deck" where we put our cooler and beach items. Our room was very large, I was very surprised at how roomy it was. We had 2 queen beds, i had read in some of the reviews that the TV's were old but ours was newer and was great for watching a movie. The room wasn't a luxury room but it was clean and had everything we needed.

We didn't spend a lot of time in the room as the weather was great that weekend. Since it was a holiday weekend the traffic in town was terrible so we parked the car and walked everywhere the lodge is in a great location for walking. There is a small park down the street with beach access (a 5 minuted walk). We also enjoyed sitting in the court yard by the koi pond. There was a wedding going on that weekend at the Lodge and we enjoyed watching the ceremony and being offered wedding cake.

I am glad we finally got an opportunity to stay at the Ecola Creek Lodge and when we stay again i want a room off the court yard. Great staff, very helpful.

Room Tip: call and see what rooms are available, the web site didn't really have the most accurate info...

Checked in on a very rainy day and it may have impacted our stay. Although the clerk was quite friendly she neglected to tell us that she was putting us in a 'pet' room. Within 15 minutes the disinfectant smell was overpowering with no way of venting the room out due to the rain. The carpet stains and dog bowl in the room were less than inviting. How can she not mention this?? We were moved to another unit and this one was much better as no pets were allowed in this one. It still had a 'musty' odor though. The room was large with a separate seating area to watch TV, although the TV was rather small. A fridge and microwave were provided. Unfortunately during the night we could hear every noise from an adjoining room, especially a man snoring. These thin walls were irritating to say the least so this is not the best place to stay while in Cannon Beach. Our 'average' rating is rather generous as we would not stay here again despite the nice location and appealing grounds. If only the interiors of the rooms were as nice....

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here, AVOID the pet rooms if you do not have one. Can't stress that enough...

Older hotel, but very clean and well maintained. We got the last available room, an alcove, and I was needlessly concerned. It had a little kitchen with adjoining living area, a small bedroom plus a large bathroom. Everything was comfortable.

Kitchen was lacking. There was no garbage disposal or dishwasher. For us, this meant washing in advance every dish and pan we were going to use...we know when leaving, we don't clean the dishes for the next guest very well and are not sure the maids do either. Also, the pans were NOT nonstick. This meant a mess to clean up.
I would definitely consider this lodge again, I would just not plan on using the kitchen.

Management was nice and social. They served cookies and coffee in the lobby each morning and were accommodating. I wish them well.

A place with a lot of character located at the edge of town so it is quiet.
They have a lovely koi pond and many rooms overlook this. There are
wild rabbits, at one time must have been domesticated, that hop around
grazzing in the grass. We try every year to reunion there with our friends.
It is one of the more reasonable hotels in Cannon Beach, good value.
