we stayed here for two nights and purchased our stay through Groupon. We like to visit places we have never been to before so decided on Ocean Shores. The hotel itself has individually owned units. Our unit (206) was a little dated but it was clean and the space of having a 1 bedroom was worth it. There is a... More

Thank you so much for such a detailed and favorable review! I'm very pleased that you had a good time with us. Using Groupon is a great way to try out new places inexpensively, and I sincerely hope that you will choose to return to us in the future. Thanks for sharing!

Rented the penthouse for the weekend for a girls weekend. We had 5 of us with 3 bedrooms. 2 1/2 bathrooms. We had plenty of room. Room was advertised to sleep 10. Great deck over looking pool and beach, a full kitchen to boot. 2 living rooms with a nice gas fireplace downstairs. Beds were very comfortable. We shopped till... More

It's so great to hear what a fantastic girls weekend you had! The Penthouse is a great space! Even if you have looked at the photos on our website, it's still surprising just how much room that unit has. Thank you for sharing your experience! We look forward to having you back!

The Grey Gull is for people desiring something other than a "regular motel/hotel" at the beach. It is beautifully designed. Each unit is a condo, and thus particularly designed by the owners. Its emphasis is quiet, although children and pets are welcomed. A big draw is the heated pool and hot pool, surrounded by glass walls to keep the wind... More

Thank you for your feedback! Our deluxe units are extremely popular, especially 214 and 314. These corner units are very private and offer a bit more space than our standard one bedroom condo units. They all connect to studio suites, as well, so larger parties can be accommodated easily. (With the connecting units, it is always best to call the... More

Room was nice, staff very friendly, close to ocean and shopping. My granddaughters loved the outdoor (warm) pool. We decided to come back but next time will stay longer as there are many fun things to do in Ocean Shores

I'm so glad to hear that you and your granddaughters had a great time! I am also very pleased to hear that next time you plan to stay longer! Ocean Shores is a great little town with a lot of hidden gems to explore. The Weatherwax property and jetty areas are fun outdoor places to start. We look forward to... More

Anybody who owns, or plans to own a 50's motel needs to take a lesson from this place. The architect has done a super job making this into a little beach bungalow style gem. They kept with the "flowers everywhere" Cannon Beach theme.

We stayed on the 3rd floor and the view was worth it. The room was spacious and well appointed. The only small complaint I have is that the bedroom faced east and the drapes and blinds did nothing to block the sunlight streaming in at 5:30am. We will be back.

Thank you for your review and for the feedback on the bedroom blinds! We are starting to add better blackout blinds to the bedrooms. This has been a comment we have heard a lot lately, so we will be making that change. I'm so pleased to know that you will return despite the issue with the bedroom. I appreciate it,... More

Staff was terrific, knew you by name. Helpful to the smallest detail. The building is older, ocean air takes it's toll on things like screen doors but everything quite functional. Never got in the pool or hot tub but others seemed to enjoy. Nice walk to beach (about 1/3 mile through dunes) . Deer grazing on lawn dawn and dusk.... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and I love hearing how we could help make your vacation great! The salty air does take quite the toll on our structure, and our maintenance team works hard to keep everything in the best possible shape. It's a constant task, but our guys are determined. Our third floor does offer the... More

Thank you for such a positive review! It's extremely gratifying to hear that you had a great time and will be back.

Stayed overnight just after 4th of July weekend. I used to stay here as a kid, and nothing has changed... literally. Decor is kwid 90s, from the furniture styles to the faux gold seagulls on the wall to the tube TV. However the staff was friendly and everything clean and well kept, if just a bit worn from age.

View of ocean was nice and kids enjoyed pool. Easy access to beach and a place to barbecue on property. Like this hotel as it is pet friendly!! Would stay here again. Close to town so you can walk to shops!
