... Zach really enjoyed it, too!
Afterwards, we drove around downtown Seaside searching for a parking spot, finally found one, and then went into the little Seaside Aquarium to check out the Sea Lions and other salt water species.
We also checked out the little "mall" in downtown Seaside - enjoying our day to ourselves!
... of the USA. As we strolled around town, we felt a sense of how popular Cannon Beach must be as a holiday destination for those living in the nearby cities. The beach is great and the town charming and well equipped.
A further stroll back down the beach, admiring the setting sun, brought us back to our room and a rest. The long tour of Mount Hood and the falls had added a lot to our journey - over 250 miles driven in all, and we needed our ...
... a cow moo-ing by projected through a loud speaker on car driving round the village. Eventually an announcement explains that this is the regular test for the tsunami warning system. (The moo-ing continues followed by the repeated announcement.) The next day we discover that this happens EVERY MORNING. I loved the logic that bovine sounds were the most calming and least panic inducing ...
... on the Oregon coast in summer!!
After our sunny day in Cannon Beach the weather persisted to be gray and chilly. We stayed near Florence, Oregon at a state camp there and when we took the short path to the beach, the wind was howling like a MoFo and it was so cold we barely stayed ten minutes. We did get a few minutes of blue sky when we visited the beautiful Heceta Head Lighthouse, which is very impressive, but it was a fleeting moment of ...
The Plan: breakfast; drive to Cannon Beach via Lewis & Clark National Memorial (Fort Clapsop). Chill What really happened - Today we have a 90 mile drive down the Oregon coast. I know this isn't strictly in keeping with the West to East journey but we want to go to Portland and I feel it would be good to chill at the coast for a bit on the way. As we drive through places like Aberdeen, which is as industrial as its Scottish namesake, Seaside, so called to give the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hallmark Resort Cannon Beach
I first stayed at the Hallmark Inn when I was visiting from Alaska and had just driven up to see the view as it is well off the main drag. It was so charming and prefect that I went in to inquire about a room, cost etc. After talking with staff I realized I had to stay there and I didn't care what it cost and I am not rich, just a single nurse. It was so worth it. When ever I think of a getaway for my soul I dream of the Hallmark Inn in Cannon Beach. The staff was so nice and friendly. I stayed two days. the room, the view, and the service are the best I have ever had. They even supplied special goodies, plus a bed for my dog. The beach is breathtaking and private. The food is wonderful and so was the special wine they had. Deck, jacuzzi, fireplace just wonderful. I have been back several times. I reccomend this Inn to everyone. To me and my dog Nikita there is no better place! Plan on staying for more than one day because you won't want to leave! I always get one of the rooms that has everything I could ever want for a magical gettaway. I forgot to mention the thick, cozy terry robes provided. They will make you a picknic basket for the beach. If all you want is a place to lay your head then stay at motel 6 if you want a unforgettable getaway stay here!Sincerely,
Loved my stay
When I opened the door to our room i couldn't believe it .Staring me in the face was haystack rock. In fact our older children laughed and said i guees you liked the rock Mom. I was also asked by many what hotel we stayed in and i told them what a great hotel the hallmark is. Thanks Barbara
Best Room I've Stayed In So Far....
My husband and I stopped in Hallmark Inn one night and got an amazing deal (otherwise the prices are high). We stayed in the Deluxe Jacuzzi Suite. (The junior jacuzzi is good, has the amazing tub, but no real view.) Wow. It was amazing - the view was the best I have ever seen, and the 10 jet double-person jacuzzi tub was the best I've ever been in. The bed was super comfortable, and even though they gave you extra pillows, we only needed one because they were so big and fluffy. My husband definitely enjoyed the morning paper delivered on our doorstep also. :) We watch for specials and any chance to go back.....
Best Ocean Wiew Hotel in Oregon
My wife and I stayed here a couple years ago and stll remember the romantic walks on the beach next to Haystack Rock. This hotel has all the amenities you will need for your room including your own whirlpool spa. The prices are a little high, but it is the ultimate in a romantic beach vacation or honeymoon.
Love the Hallmarik
A group of six to 10 has been staying at the Hallmark for over 10 years. We absolutely love it there. Last year we even stayed in one of the houses they handle. We always have a fantastic time and the service is wonderful. If you haven't been to Cannon Beach, you must try it. Once you have, you'll come back to it over and over.
A wonderful place!
My husband and I decided to take our two girls to the Oregon coast for Spring Break. The drive from Washington to Oregon was very scenic and easy. We arrived ahead of schedule and decided to see if we could check in. It was two hours before check in time(4pm) but the staff was so accomidating and happy to give us our room right then. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The Suites aren't right on the beach but from our enclosed balcony you could see the waves. My 14yr old loved the personnal jetted tub and my 7yr lived at the indoor heated pool that was just a few feet away. The room had a captain's galley (everything but an oven) and we were able to have most of our meals there. The girls are asking if we could visit again this summer. We just might!
Don't let the pictures on their website fool you.. the hotel is not nearly as nice as they make you believe. We paid about $210 (per night) for an ocean-front room but it should have cost us closer to $60.We were given the option of a jacuzzi-tub for an extra $50 but we decided against it. Instead, we had a small kitchen where the fridge was REALLY noisy and I had to unplug it during the night. The bed was a pull-down bed (you pull it down from the wall) and the linen was really, really shocking. Two sheets and a really thin blanket was all we got. There was a balcony but almost no privacy as there's no separation between the balconies. Anyone on the balcony next door can look straight into your hotel room. Some privacy would be nice. Also, there's no restaurant in the hotel - no room service and no mini-bar.Honestly, I would never go here again. If it weren't for the view, they wouldn't get away with charging more than $50-$60 for the room. 75% of your faire is towards location - I'm not prepared to pay that much.
Best Deal at the Beach!
I have been going to The Hallmark Resort for the past 17 years or so, starting when I was a teenager and still continue to go now that I have children of my own. There is not other place that can beat it overall! Great prices, great location, great views, great service and amenities that everyone would love! Pool, hot tub, sauna, work out room, beach access...what more could you want!
We visited Hallmark the first week of Sept. 2001. With an AARP discount we got an ocean view room for about $160 a night. we had a balcony, king size bed, table and 2 chairs and a wonderful, large, deep whirlpool tub. The room was very nice. Service was good. Access to Haystack Rock is very easy; however if you haven't been here before you should know the beach at this spot is very wide and it seems you have to walk blocks just to cross the beach and get to the water. Also the water is freezing cold and it isn't possible to wade in it for more than a few seconds. You can observe starfish and other creatures on the rocks when the tide goes down. A good restaurant is across the street and within a few miles are many beautiful scenic spots and other beaches. The best grocery store in the area is the Safeway in Seaside.
I came to visit the hallmark with my sister and trully enjoyed the view of Haystack Rock and all the shops. The Hallmark resort left a lasting impression with me and I can't wait to visit it again. The people were so wonderful and the rooms were very romantic for future visits with my boyfriend. Thank-you,
