I am somewhat reluctant to share my enthusiasm for this wonderful place because that might make it harder for us to get a room the next time we visit Cayucos. Cool breezes, the sound of the waves right out the window and comfortable rooms with balconies make this the perfect getaway destination. Our beach-loving dogs loved it as much as... More

We always have a terrific time when we travel to Cayucos, CA. We usually stay at the Shoreline Inn. We are one of their long time guest. Nearing twenty years. And we always have a wonderful time. We prefer to stay in one of their upper beach front rooms. And all the rooms have a balcony, which we love. Shoreline... More

I have stayed here several times, as a getaway & family vacation with kids & dog. I have nothing bad to say. Views from each room are lovely & the inn plus town are very dog friendly. My favorite spot!

Wonderful 4th spent here. As always the staff is awesome. They always make us feel like we are family while we are there. Exceptional views of the pier, beach, and ocean. Cayucos turns into a bit of a madhouse on the 4th and with a few minor exceptions the Shoreline is a sea of tranquility in the chaos. Very pet... More

Not only was our stay relaxing and wonderful, we had a terrific side show of dolphins and sea gulls feeding on fish just a few yards off shore, right in front of our hotel! The friendly staff is always helpful and our annual stay never disappoints!

I booked early for one of the rooms on the beach and enjoyed the view and the access to the beach. The room had everything I require; hairdryer, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator, comfy bed and a light to read by. It's probably me but I never figured out how to turn on the hanging light over the small table... More

We stayed in a second-floor, ocean-view room. We were lucky enough to see pelicans and dolphins feeding just beyond the surf line each evening. The room was very clean, and generously equipped with a flat-screen tv, a larger than average fridge, a DVD player, and an iron and ironing board. The building is a little dated, but the management has... More

We love the Shoreline Inn, we love how pet friendly they are. We always stay in the main building and this was the first time we were able to book a downstairs room with a pier view, and it was just beautiful. the room was nice and large and the view was perfect. Can't wait to go again!!

It is makes us so happy to hear that you love the Shoreline Inn. Both of our buildings have it’s own benefits. Beachfront building has a breathtaking panoramic ocean view while the rooms in the Deluxe building are almost twice the size. We look forward to seeing you on your next stay! Laila Kollmann More
