This is a great spot, especially if you get a room with an ocean view. This is a nice basic motel, with nice basic rooms and a nice basic breakfast. Everything was fine. My room, on the beach, was decently sized, appointed and clean. Friendly helpful staff.

This was our first overnight trip to Cayucos and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. Our room was overlooking the beach with access to the patio. Our kids were over the moon about the view and how close we were to the beach. The room was really nice but small for 2 adults & 2 kids. The breakfast was... More

The rooms were excellent and very clean, beach view was wonderful and the staff were very good. The barbeque area was great and what a sunset. But we were the only people without a dog, this is a hotel which specializes in canines! We have nothing against dogs and have two of our own, but at one point on Sunday... More

We are glad to hear you thought our rooms were excellent and clean. We are a pet friendly establishment and want all of our guests to enjoy their stay. That is the reason we have a pet contract that states that dogs must be on leash at all times while on property. Our staff is one call away to your... More

My family and I loved staying here. This is our new favorite vacation spot! Super close to the beach. It is nice and secluded! The continental breakfast was great and satisfying for my family. I'm getting ready to plan another visit for August!

Cayucos Shoreline Inn makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter reception. The rooms are large and comfortably furnished and their degree of ocean view is accurately represented when you book online. The inn is beautifully maintained and the included continental breakfast is excellent! Cayucos is a great little town for exploring the coast, visiting the Hearst Castle and... More

Spent 3 days enjoying the leash free beach and watching the dogs romp in and out of the water. We stayed in a beach front room downstairs for easy access to the beach. I brought a dog along and my 86 year old mom, so this made it easy for them to walk out to the grass & patio area... More

Thank you, for taking the time to review the Shoreline Inn. It is great to hear that your family enjoyed your stay in a downstairs beachfront room that has direct access to Cayucos beach. The sounds of the ocean are very powerful and can be heard from anywhere on the property, especially at night when the town is quiet. We... More

The rooms were pretty clean. Not spotless. Had a lot of flies or mosquitoes or something, but being near the ocean it was expected. We were able to kill the ones in there and then it was fine. The view was great. I like that it is pet friendly. It is close to everything. Staff was friendly. Very enjoyable. Loved... More
