The Sandtrap Inn
Ranked #14 of 17 Cannon Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 August 2012

The rate is inexpensive considering its location- walking distance to downtown and to the beach. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The bedroom is spacious but right above is the second floor's bathroom and you can literally hear them, flushing the toilet and all that specially at night! The kitchen has updated appliances. Flat screen tv in the bedroom and in the livingroom. It has a queen size pull out sofa bed. The bed is very comfortable.

The Sand Trip Inn has two buildings, north and south, that are a couple of blocks apart. The south building #5 is a one bedroom front main floor unit with large windows, and a parking spot. New appliances in the full kitchen. LCD TV and DVD... they have a few movies in the office half a block north that you can borrow.

The unit is a good size. The old table looks out of place and should be updated as well. The carpet had a few stains and with the beach a block away there will be sand tracked in so a carpet-free path to the bathroom located furthest from the entry door would be beneficial.

Internet and TV worked fine... there is even a tiny TV mounted in the bedroom. The electric fireplace is great as heat is frequently needed in this often damp and chilly part of the world.

There is a little BBQ out front though hanging out next to the highway wouldn't be my first choice... which also means there is some road noise, and as another reviewer mentioned you can really hear your neighbors banging about... some people certainly lack grace and manners... occasionally sounded like a rhino was upstairs. Sound proofing obviously wasn't in the budget here though it's not one of those places you can hear people whispering next door... do rhinos whisper though? :P At $99 a night they could be charging more considering you can pay over $200 to be that block closer to the ocean.

You can walk everywhere in little Cannon Beach quite easily though I do wonder why the vast majority of the restaurants are downtown with all the shops while most of the lodging is stuck off alone in "Midtown". Food next to people would seem logical but maybe that's just me lol.

Get out to Haystock Rock on lovely Cannon Beach for some low tide tidepooling and go to Ecola State Park just north of town as well. Check out the shops and galleries too.

All and all a nice little place. Service was fine if a little rough around the edges, but it usually is in small towns... and the not overly friendly pacific northwest in general.

Room Tip: A number of different style rooms are available so ask to see a couple that may match your needs. As...

We came down to spend Canadian Thanksgiving on the North Oregon Coast and found Unit 2 Townhouse at the Sandtrap to be just fine for our three night stay. The Fall special deals are very good, the location fine and the unit clean and comfortable. We would have appreciated a kettle in the kitchen but a minor niggle.

Unit #10, "large 1-bedroom" should be called "humungous 1-bedroom"! The bedroom itself is small, but the rest of the space is immense, including living room, dining area and kitchen. The unit was spotless, comfortable, and worth the $125/night off-season rate. Our only complaint is that there seems to be NO insulation between units. The family downstairs slammed every door possible, and we could hear their children screaming, laughing, crying, and even sneezing. But, if hearing your neighbors doesn't bother you, the unit is great!

I have stayed in Cannon Beach many times and got a email promotion from the Sand Trap Inn. I had seen it before and decided to give it a try. When I made the call to reserve a room the staff was great and I ended up with a 2 story one bedroom townhouse. It was very clean and well stocked. Plenty of towels and kitchen supplies. We didn't have a view of the beach but were less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and about the same distance from down town Cannon Beach. . Our bed was very comfortable (Unit 2) and unlike some town houses i have rented we did have a TV in the bedroom. The deck faces the street so it isn't very private, but we went to the beach and didn't sit on the deck. They have muffins, cookies, and fruit in the office every morning, you can get all the coffee and popcorn that you need. In addition they have playing cards available, and a free DVD library. The staff is great and very helpful

My husband and I booked a quaint little room with a fireplace, but when we arrived, the room hadn't been cleaned. Honestly, the place was pretty trashed. The woman at the front said the cleaning staff had gone home for the night. She'd have to move us. The first room she suggested was even smaller than the first, and I'd really had my heart set on the fireplace.

So she put us in what was basically a spacious one-bedroom apartment that was beautiful. We couldn't believe our luck. We had a great time. If we do it again, I think we'll just spend more for that room. It would be worth it. It had nice, big windows, a fully stocked kitchen, and a very comfortable bedroom.

It was unfortunate the original room hadn't been cleaned, and I know they weren't happy about it. However, it worked out for us!
