Room 109 was very clean and roomy. Comfortable beds, all of the kitchen amenities you need to make a meal. The kids loved the indoor pool and just a short walk to the beach. The deer let us feed them so be sure to bring apples for them- we went through 8 apples and a container of blueberries. Will definitely... More

We have been itching for a vacation but with a new baby options were limited, so Ocean Shores was a great solution. We traveled with our dog so opted for a pet - friendly room at Canterbury Inn. I was concerned 'pet friendly' would result in a stinky, stained room but instead found a clean, fresh room equipped with a... More

Our stay was fairly average. The staff were very nice and easy to talk to, but the hotel was missing the fine details you would expect at the price point we stayed for. Some cons: The edges of the carpet were not vacuumed and had build up. The fake plant in the bathroom had layers of dust. The pool and... More

BE WARNED!! This motel bills your credit card as soon as you make the reservation. If you find it necessary to cancel the reservation they charge you a $15.00 fee for cancellation. We have stayed in hotels, and motels, all over the world, (50 Countries), and have never had this happen before. Unfortunately we had to cancel because my wife... More

We just stayed for 3 nights in a comfortable 1 bedroom suite. Our young children LOVED the pool, which was the warmest indoor pool I have ever been in. The room was well appointed with all of the necessary items for cooking for a family. The staff was pleasant and helpful and we felt very welcomed. We would stay again... More

The hotel is like a breath of fresh air. The staff is very friendly and tries their best to satisfy your every need. We were surprised by the measure of cleanliness and how well kept and well equipped our condo was. The hotel has a lovely heated pool and a hot tub, which was unfortunately undergoing repairs during our stay,... More

We just had one day and night to spend in Ocean Shores. Canterbury was a wonderful find. With a kitchen, living room with sleeper couch and separate bedroom, it was perfect for our quick family getaway. The pool was a hit and after a nice swim we all cozied by the fireplace, played games and watched a movie. Since we... More
