Great Inn
We love Wave Street Inn! So close to Cannery Row. The room was comfortable and clean. I usually find something wrong about a place but not here. Plenty of towels, very clean shower, comfy bedding. There’s a couple of fire pits they light on the second floor and plenty of chairs to hang out. Just so very pleased all around.*Please note: they do charge a parking fee for each day of your stay but you know what? You’d be paying to park in a garage or lot anyways. This isn’t any more than that. Plus it’s hassle-free! We can’t recommend Wave Street enough!

Great location, super friendly, everything right
The hotel is great for its star level. Very close to the beach, had the best morning glow view on the top floor and at the beach. Everything was just right in the room. Super nice staff.

6/10 Good

The front desk employees were very friendly and welcoming. Once we got to our room the bedding was stained, dirty, and had holes.
