These lovely units offer excellent value, all the amenities you would want, are on the beach, and a short walking distance to the middle of town. Our unit had a kitchen and was well stocked with all items needed for cooking. We had an amazing view on the 3rd floor and were lucky to wake up to an incoming storm!... More

Very happy with our stay. The hotel is very family & pet friendly. Lots of room for the little ones to play. We saw dear in the back yard too. All rooms have a view of the ocean which is very nice. It was clean and quite.

This is one of the original "big three" hotels built in the new Ocean Shores development in the early 1960's. I would not have been surprised to find a touch of "faded glory" here. But that was definitely NOT the case. We enjoyed a wonderful family weekend in suite 102, and found everything beautifully maintained and current. This is a... More

We stayed in a pet friendly studio on the ground floor. Deer coming by every day. You can feed them if you desire. They will eat right out of your hand. Staff is very friendly. Room was equipped with small fridge, stove, microwave and plates, pots, pans, etc. for 4 people. TV with dvr so you can bring your own... More

On a spontaneous adventure out to the coast of Washington, we ended our search at the Canterbury Inn without having a reservation. My boyfriend and I were sent "down the road" a few times trying to find a place that would accept our fur-kid, Hank. Really, our goal was to find a dog-friendly room that was close enough to hear...

My husband and I had the privilege of staying in Room 308 at this hotel. What a beautiful view of the Ocean. It was very clean, nicely decorated and had all the amenities you would expect. The value was great. We got a military discount and everything. Ken and the other staff were kind, courteous and seemed to really like... More

It is clean. The rooms are big. The staff is great. It is close to the ocean. You can walk there with in minutes. The restaurants in the area are good. I will go there again. If I could have I would have stayed longer this time.

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
