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

This condo like hotel has a full kitchen if you need to prepare meals for a family. The living room area was a little cramped. The bed was exceptionally hard and uncomfortable, which is my only complaint for the room. I woke up with a back ache. The other complaint has to do with the pool room. Don't sit on... More

We enjoyed our midweek stay because there were not many guests, it was quiet. We were attracted to this hotel because of the "$70 per night" rate for a studio room with kitchenette. We were charged: Rm: 106: 10% AAA, Internet $122.00 1 Pet Fee @ $15 each $ 15.00 State Sales Tax $ 10.37 Local Room Tax $ 3.66... More

Needed a weekend away from the stress. This was the perfect spot. It was raining all weekend, but as they say, a rainy beach weekend beats anything else. Well, they should say it. The Canterbury Inn is a great place to stay in Ocean Shores. It is quiet, clean, and friendly. It is also a close walk to food and... More

This place is so quiet and peaceful. I stayed in a 3rd floor studio. The studio had a kitchenette. Which worked great to cook my breakfast. The pool was very warm indoor pool. Someone stated they keep the temp. at 90 degrees. I believe it. Last time I stayed here I had a 1 bedroom with a fireplace. The studio... More

Like the Sept 15 reviewer, I also stayed in the Sleeper Room, yet a week later on Sept 22. The front desk check-in was like speaking to a college friend - and this was my first visit here. How gracious and welcoming! I do not know the area at all - being from Chicago. But like ALL of the hotels... More
