We arrived tired and ready for a good night's sleep. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The price was reasonable. The room was quiet. We would stay here again. There is a café right next door that conveniently opens very early in the morning.

This is a nice older property pretty average for its class but clean and well maintained. Staff were helpful when we decided to stay a 2nd night due to rain. They brought a coffee maker when our 2nd room didn't have one. It's well located on the Main Street. Short on lighting and electrical outlets. The web site says morning... More

The inn reminds me of a typical 1950s motel. Please don't let that deter you. The room was very clean, comfortable and in a great location for a supermarket and other major retailers. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel welcome...even though I was quite early. If you're looking for fluffy extras, go elsewhere, but if... More

There are few lodging choices in this area, so we choose the Shelton Inn. It was really bad. Worn down, tired, depressing, noisy. No free breakfast (except on weekends.) The breakfast area is a little "repurposed" area of the lobby. No hair dryers in the room. No pictures on the wall. Right behind the hotel, there is construction going on.... More

The inn is a little old, but it adds to the feel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There was a very nice and filling continental breakfast. There is ample parking and nice lobby. We didnt use the pool, but it was in a heated room across the parking lot. It had good hours.

I'm glad that some of the reviewers found this motel to be clean, this was not the case for me. Our room with a king bed left a LOT to be desired. Air was not fresh. Rug was "crusty" I found a long-black hair in the bathtub. Tried to take a bath but the drain plug wouldn't work so I... More

I recently stayed at the inn for three nights. I had arrived at the Inn to find out that I had made the reservation for my three days on the following month. Not how I wanted to start the night. Forgive me,( I can't remember her name at the front desk). but she went way out of her way to... More

Visiting Shelton takes those of us old enough back to the late 50s. Parts of the town seem frozen in time, and that certainly includes the Shelton Inn. We stayed here for two nights recently and found it clean and decent. We got a genuine motel key, ("Drop in any mailbox"), we parked our car right in front of our... More

The management is making the most of this older property. The furnishings aren't updated, but the rooms are clean, everything works, and the staff is helpful.Shelton was the overnight spot for a 2 day bicycle tour we were riding in.Since we aren't into camping we were faced with finding a hotel room in Shelton. Shelton doesn't have a deep; selection... More
