Editor’s Review of Hallmark Resort Cannon Beach

If your family stays at the Hallmark Resort in Cannon Beach, you won't be able to take your eyes off Haystack Rock, the iconic monolith which looms over the beach. That's because Hallmark Resort sits practically right next to it. But the amazing view is just the start of what the resort has to offer its guests. Families come to Cannon Beach to enjoy the sun and sand, and Hallmark's prime location on the beach provides quick and easy access to the fun.

There's a casual spa-like atmosphere as soon as you enter the lobby, with its huge windows overlooking the town and beach. You'll be greeted by the smell of freshly-baked cookies, shelves of the latest DVDs for guests to borrow, and a rack of local and national newspapers to read
... more by a warm fireplace. Hotel staff is very friendly and eager to help, and they will get your family up to speed with all that the resort has to offer. That includes free bike rentals, beach chairs, two indoor pools, and the onsite spa, Elements By The Sea.

Beyond the lobby, you'll find three floors of spacious rooms for families both large and small. The rooms, many with fireplaces and balconies, are clean and roomy, so a big family won't feel squeezed for space. There are suite options that can accommodate up to six guests. Most of the suites have a kitchenette or galley kitchen, which can help you save money at meal times. Mostly, though, that view of Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock will have you mesmerized. If you can spend a little more to get an oceanfront room, you will not be sorry. less

Standard Rooms
The most economical choice at the Hallmark Resort is its standard, non-view room, which can hold a small family of three. You'll get a very comfortable space with one queen bed and one twin bed. However, you'll give up the convenience of a kitchenette for just a microwave and a refrigerator. It's a good choice if your stay is short and you plan to eat out for most of your meals.

The amazing view is close enough, as the walk from any part of the resort to the beach is no more than a few minutes. There are various standard rooms that do have a view of the beach. You'll pay more, but the extra amenities of a balcony, fireplace, and jetted tub might be worth it. There are three floors of standard rooms, sleeping two to three guests comfortably.

For a family of four or more, you'll want to look at Hallmark's selection of suites. Our family stayed in a one-bedroom oceanfront suite that felt like a small apartment. It featured queen and twin beds in a separate bedroom, and a surprisingly comfortable queen Murphy bed in the living room that we could fold up and get out of the way during the day. The full kitchen was perfect for breakfast, although we didn't use all of its features, like the dishwasher, during our relatively short stay.

Our favorite memories of this suite were the walk-out balcony, where all four of us could sit and watch the sunset, and the cozy fireplace, which we could retreat back into the room for after the sun was gone and a chill had hit the air.

For an even larger space, Hallmark has two-bedroom suites available that include most of the same amenities. For a large suite that is more economical, Hallmark has a separate building located just one block away from the main building. These Hallmark Suites all sleep up to four guests on king and queen beds.

Amenities here include spacious living rooms, galley kitchens, and jetted tubs in the bathroom. You may be giving up an ocean view, but you get a lot of space for a lower price. The Hallmark Suites are the newest addition to the resort, so the rooms can feel a bit less dated than the rest of the grounds. This separate building contains its own heated indoor saltwater pool and spa, so you're not missing out on anything except the view. But even that is just a minute's walk across the street.

Beach Cabins
For even larger accommodations, Hallmark Resort offers several beachfront vacation homes right next to the resort. These four luxury-style homes can sleep from six to 10. They all sit right on the beach for instant access to the sand. Each of them have huge decks, guaranteeing the perfect spot for your family meals. As with the other Hallmark rooms and suites, the beach cabins come with all of the amenities that you would expect in a resort stay, including housekeeping. This a great choice for a large family or several families vacationing together.
