Sea Sprite on the Estuary
Ranked #7 of 17 Cannon Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 April 2013

My wife and found the Sea Sprite at the Estuary on the internet and it looked promising. Knowing the location well, we decided to stay there for two days. We really liked the location and the ease of "self" check in and out. We stayed on the second floor and the views were great. The room looks better in the pictures, but it was still nice.
Cons:
The windows were so streaked, when the sun hit them you couldn't see well. For the price of the room one would think housekeeping would use something other than a towel or paper to clean the windows. As mentioned, we were on the second floor and there is only one room located on the third floor or "nest". The quiet times are clearing posted with the directions for the room and each morning we were awoken around 6am by kids jumping up and down, running and what sounded like moving furniture. Needless to say, this ruined the trip...not to mention being very loud until midnight. I'm not sure if the family was just that loud or the construction was paper thin. Anyway, we could hear everything.

In my opinion, the price is I believe the second highest at Cannon beach and for what you get, it is overpriced...in fact, way over priced.

I would recommend staying on the top floor unless you visit during the week.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 1st or 2nd floor on a weekend.

This is the fourth time we've stayed at Sea Sprite -- our favorite getaway on the Oregon coast.

First, its hard to beat this location at the north end of the 3-1/2 mile long Cannon Beach, offering views of the ever-changing estuary with the ocean right behind. Its the best of both worlds to enjoy more privacy here while having the option of strolling down the beach for the lively people-dogs-puffin scenes closer to Haystack Rock.

Next, the Sea Sprite Tidal Pool Suite is a gem. There are plenty of dining out options in Cannon Beach. But we often take advantage of the well-appointed kitchenette to cook up whatever looks best at the seafood market three blocks away so we can maximize views and ambiance right there. Other thoughtful amenities: the gas fireplace, entertainment center, jetted tub, comfy King size bed, several books on the area, a notebook of helpful tips. And its all spotlessly clean too.

Finally, staff are always friendly and accommodating. We couldn't ask for more.

We normally don't rent studios, but did this time. The furniture is quite comfortable and placed to maximize viewing the river and the ocean. Other than the king sized be, there is a sofa sleeper that is actually comfortable, a single stuffed chair, an expandable dining table with three straight backed chairs, and a long narrow coffee table. It has a small refrigerator, but held our assortment of juices (mixers, actually), cheeses and white wine nicely; a microwave and normal oven, and a glass-top stove top. The bath has a really nice jetted (from the bottom) bath tub with shower. My only negative for the studio unit is that the tub is shorter than I prefer. I like to stretch while soaking, but had to have either knees or upper torso out of the water. Other than that, a wonderfully comfy room. A short walk to town for shopping and eating.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean and river views. There is no elevator so if you are on second or third floor b...

My husband and I went on a 2 week honeymoon that included several travel destinations in California and Oregon. Sea Sprite on the Estuary was by far the most memorable part of our entire trip. The accommodations were immaculately clean and the layout of the suite was perfect for looking out at the beautiful Cannon Beach. The scenery looked like something out of a painting or an enchanting movie. We plan on coming back as soon as we can!

This is one of the best locations in Cannon Beach...easy beach access, close to shops and restaurants yet quiet and secluded. We were in two different rooms over a 3-night stay. One was substantially nicer than the other but both were very good. Ask for a room with jacuzzi tub and working fireplace..both very nice amenities after a walk on the beach. One if our rooms had them, one did not. Nice people. A good choice in Cannon Beach.

Normally a cold rainy weekend would be dissappointing but the views and fireplace made for a perfect, low key weekend. Great restaurants and a darling small town within a short walk and direct beach access,...perfect.

Room Tip: Room 23 was on the second floor and made the views unobstructed.

This hotel is perfectly located for walking to downtown Cannon Beach and nearby restaurants. We stayed in one of the smaller first floor rooms and it contained all the essentials. The king-size bed was comfortable and the views from the room were very enjoyable despite the fact that you cannot see Haystack Rock from the room. The outdoor balcony was covered so we could enjoy the outdoors even as it drizzled.

The room was equiped with the a number of things in the kitchen, including an oven, four burner stove, small fridge, dish washer, cutting board, toaster, coffee pot, kettle, an assortment of teas and coffees, wine glasses, coffee cups, and pots and pans. Note that the kitchen did not contain any cooking staples like spices or oil.

The room also came with satelite television, including Sirius music channels. It's nice to turn to a music channel and sit out on the deck with a glass of wine, enjoying the view.

If I had to find some negatives about the place they would be a weak WiFi signal and the fact that some of the pans were beat up and their non-stick surface was peeling off (not what I would cook with).

All-in-all it was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: There are only five rooms in the Estuary location... hard to go wrong.
