So, we are currently still in the room, but I didnt want to forget anything... I'll see if I can update after we have had the breakfast tomorrow morning. My family of 3 kids, husband and myself arrived to this old school establishment around roughly 1 pm. We used a groupon to try the place out but we were not... More

We spent two nights; two adults, a teenager and one Golden Retriever. We found that the staff was always helpful, kind and knowledgable. The room was a one bedroom suite with lots of space, but the interior and furniture was a little worn. Our one complaint was that the breakfast offering (included in the room price) was very disappointing, with... More

This place has the charm of what a hotel should be. All about the service. I was impressed with the view I had from the room and everything about the room. But what set this place apart was the night clerk ensuring that a hotel policy was enforced. Small children should not even be awake after 10 pm and this... More

My grandparents hosted their 60th wedding anniversary celebration/family reunion at the Polynesian. The building and furnishings are dated, but the rooms were surprisingly big. We had a 2BR suite with one and a half baths. There was also a pull out sofa in the full size living room and a full size kitchen with dishwasher! This made it possible for... More

We had a booking at another hotel but when we arrived they had overbooked and there wasn't a room. So we went here just because it was close. It looked a little old but we were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. Very clean. Very nice staff. Pool/sauna/hot tub was really nice even though they were older. They were... More

If you have dogs and you want to go to Ocean Shores, this a fine choice. We got a good deal on a one bedroom suite with ocean view and balcony. The direct route to the beach is moderate dune trek, but you can drive on to the beach in 5 minutes or walk in about 10. The room included... More

In addition to our one bedroom suites we also have studios, two bedroom units as well as two penthouses available depending on your needs. We also offer a game room and a private park for... More

So nice to be able to have a pet friendly room with a view instead if being relegated to the ground floor in the back because you have a dog with you. Clean, comfortable, quiet and excellent service. The restaurant was also excellent.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We offer pet friendly rooms on our first three floors so no one is regulated to non view rooms. Chef Gordon does an excellent job at Mariah’s and many of our guests enjoy the fact that we have a restaurant on site. We look forward to seeing you again! Tate Johnson General... More

My spouse and I recently stayed at the Polynesian Resort (really motel) in Ocean Shores. We have stayed here several times over the last few decades. The resort was probably built around 1960, and we first stayed here in the early 1970s. The motel has mainly outside corridors and has three floors plus penthouses above the third floor. We stated...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights with our dog recently. Everything was great (except 80s appliances) during our stay. Wonderful views of the ocean, comfortable bed and quite the nice wood-burning fireplace! We were close to the leash-free beach and a plethora of area restaurants. Best vacation (in the U.S.) I've been on in many years! The room at... More

We are a family of 8 and we traveled with friends who had 4 kids. There was room for all of us. Loved the kitchen and the full fridge. The kids had fruit to snack on and milk to drink and there was room for it all in the full fridge! The price is reasonable for such a large condo.... More
