“Another great stay at McBee”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This is at least my 12th stay at McBee and I've been coming for more than 16 years with my dogs. What I have noticed is that the new owner Claudia and her partner have really spiffed the little rooms up. New mattresses...More dishes for cooking. To me the best part of staying there is the proximity to the beach (from some units near the beach side you can hear the ocean!), the modest one time dog fee of 10.00, the little gift bucket with treats and towels for the dog, the efficient little kitchen where I can cook a modest meal. For people who come to the beach to be outdoors most of the time--and who doesn't want to do that?- McBee offers the perfect location and excellent price point. If you're on a budget you can choose a basic room and go on up to the Grand rooms with fireplaces and full kitchens. Their off season 3 nights for the prce of 2 is the best deal in town!

Room Tip: I've stayed in quite a few of the rooms; no 29 is very cosy and has a good kitchen but no firepl...

We stayed in room 28 with our dog. The room has a simple kitchenette, with plenty of space in the Living room and a separate Bedroom.
The rooms were simple, and clean through out.
The welcome bucket for the dog was a really nice touch, thank you.

These cottages are perfectly located to get to the beach. We would definitely consider staying here again. Excellent value for money :)

The cottages are extremely clean, from the kitchenette to the bathroom. It is a small studio, but adequate for two people. Not much room to hang up clothes (very small open closet) or coats. A few more hooks in the bedroom would be helpful for hanging up coats. The decor is very cute and the kitchen has everything you could need. We enjoyed our stay there. It is within a minute of the beach where you can walk up or down the entire length of the Cannon Beach. Haystack Rock is right out your back door. Too bad it didn't have ocean views, it would have been perfect. The woman at check in was extremely helpful and courteous. They recommended a fabulous restaurant, "The Hardware Store" for dinner. Their food was excellent. Casual, but you could tell the locals ate there the food was so good. We enjoyed our stay there and would return.

Room Tip: Any of the McBee cottages are within a minutes walk to the beach. None have ocean views, but the oc...

The McBee cottages were just what I was looking for--I didn't want a typical hotel or resort, but something more unique. These cottages have a nostalgic feel, but totally updated. Very clean inside, cozy, and just a short walk to the beach--look out the door and there's the ocean. The classic rooms are fine for two, though if you prefer some extra space, it may be worth upgrading to a room that sleeps 3-4 for the pull out couch.

Check-in at the Cannon Beach Hotel was easy--treats wait for guests checking in, plus a little cafe is attached to the lobby. Their free DVD rental is a nice bonus.

A few good restaurants nearby, plus a convenience store and coffee shop. Walk to downtown takes about 10-15 minutes, or a very quick drive. If McBee cottages are too small for your taste, they also own larger rentals next door. Book directly on their website and get a discount as a first time visitor, plus less expensive in off season. http://www.cannonbeachhotel.com/

We stayed in the McBee cottages with our dog and it was wonderfully cozy! Location is fantastic, only a block or so off the beach and very close to Haystack Rock. Our cottage was very clean and private. Would definitely stay again!

As a child, I would often visit my grandmother for the summers in San Diego...and I still love the beach! McBee Cottages is like a quiet, clean cozy pocket of yesteryear~ the units are conveniently located near town & only a couple blocks walk from the Pacific Ocean. Although the weather inland is scorching, we are cooled by a soft marine layer overhead..conducive to enjoying the gas fireplace in our cottage, the fire ring surrounded by adirondack chairs or BBQ & picnic tables in the adjacent center garden. The kitchenette met our needs perfectly! We even baked cookies from the local cooking school (EVOO), roasted vegetables, wild mushrooms & meat in the oven for our last evening meal. There are DVDs, sand chairs & beach towels available for guests. I brought CDs & played them in the DVD player. We brought & read some good books, when not walking along the beach, shopping, napping or exploring the many sights to see along the northern coast. Now departing, we will savor the scenic route home, driving south on Highway 101~celebrating my new retirement with relaxed & happy hearts. Thanks for everything! Everyone was so hospitable, from the desk staff when checking in, to the grounds/housekeeping staff- it was like going to grandma's for a cozy visit~

The cottage is about a block from one section of shops and cafes and a driveway walk to the beach. You can walk 5 min in the other direction to the Lazy Susan for brunch or some of the other classic Cannon Beach shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were amazingly clean, considering ours was a pet-friendly cottage. It was the end of the tourist season, so some other places were a bit weary of tourists invading the town, but otherwise most folks were friendly. There was a charming fireplace with gas flame for ambiance and a little warmth on chilly nights. The price was much lower than anyone else in the area, but still not cheap (you'd have to travel further south to find a comparable place for less... maybe Lincoln City). They did offer a first time stay discount. I would return. I've already recommended to friends.
