The Shoreline Inn is the beautifully located inn on the beach in Cayucos,Ca. It is dog friendly ,like the whole town and has nice local charm. Be prepared on weekends to pay for two nights. I say be prepared because it wasn't explained to me that way, but don't argue with them. You won't WIN. Outside of this mishap, the... More

I read about this town and this hotel in a magazine article a couple years ago and knew that the next time I could make it up the coast this would be my destination. I was not disappointed! My friend and I stayed two nights and we spent our time relaxing and watching the ocean. Our room had a small... More

We found about 10 years and have always enjoyed..Not fancy...old fashioned basic motel.. Clean.. Pets allowed max two.. I have 3 well behaved 7 lb dogs. They will not budge even after I offered a cleaning deposit and they can inspect room at any time. I never leave my dogs alone and they are well behaved. I have found that... More

We've stayed here previously and always try to book a room in the beach building. Sliding doors open onto a well maintained grass area w/patio section overlooking the ocean. The beach is just steps from the door. Rooms are clean, well maintained, staff is friendly and helpful. Price is reasonable. We needed to get away for a couple of days... More

Spent a Thursday evening in Cayucos at the Shoreline inn. We did not book a room in advance, just called the hotel when we got into town and decided we wanted to stay. We ended up in a large king room with a fireplace and ocean view. That night we left open the windows, put on the gas fire and... More

We had one of the larger rooms with a part view of beach and full view of jetty. Clean and very spacious room. My fears over possible dog smell were unfounded, no hint what so ever ! and no dog dodo over lawns as mentioned in another review. There is a nice little low divider between the two queen beds,...

This is a quaint hotel on the beach of Cayucos. The staff is very attentive and friendly. It is a dog friendly hotel as well as a dog friendly city. The rooms are not large but they are quite comfortable. There is a fridge and microwave. Beds are comfortable. Hearing the waves during the night is amazing!

We found this place years ago, in the middle of a November rain storm. And we try to stay here every time we head up the coast. Great ocean views - one building is smack on the beach - you can walk out and on to the beach. This time we were in the rooms above the office, with only... More

It was pure serendipity, to find us during a November rainstorm. Our beachfront rooms do have a great panoramic ocean view, any room description that has deluxe means that it is located in the deluxe building. The deluxe rooms are almost double the size as the beachfront. When choosing a room keep in mind your preferences of a larger room... More

I don't know if I am capable of writing well enough to describe how happy the little woman and I were with our stay at the Shoreline Inn. This motel didn't just meet my expectations, it exceeded them in every area. This is the first motel I have ever stayed in that was truly prepared to be dog-friendly. This starts... More

Wow! Thank you soo, much for your detailed review! This is what the staff at the Shoreline Inn works hard for everyday. From the little details in the rooms to keeping our prices at reasonable rates, we aim to please. You are absolutely right; our rates are very reasonable and competitive. Our fall and winter rates are even better. We... More

We recently spent two nights at the Shoreline Inn, which was our third year coming to this hotel. I always looked forward to coming here, so this year was a real disappointment. I'm directing this review to smokers, because if you are a non-smoker then I'm sure you would love it. And if you do smoke you will probably like... More

Your passionate review is very much appreciated. It's heartwarming to read your kudos for the property. Thank you. Although many lodging properties are now non-smoking establishments, we have made every effort to accommodate our guests who smoke. And you are right, how much better does it get than to look at the ocean while enjoying your time outside? We had... More
