“Pet friendly inn in a pet friendly town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Cayucos is a small beach town in Central California between Morro Bay and Cambria. We stayed at the Shoreline Inn, which is right on the beach. Our room overlooked the pier and we loved it. We couldn't have asked for a better view. They have a better than average continental breakfast and the staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back

Room Tip: Pick a room on the second floor overlooking the pier. The rooms are small, but the view makes it wo...

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, updated amenities in the room and overall quality of this motel. The management clearly care very much about their property and keep it in pristine shape - NO smell of beachy mold or stale "whatever" at this place. They have a strict no smoking anywhere on property except in designated areas, great for us but not if you're a smoker! Loved the beach front room.

Having been big fans of Cayucos for years, we wanted a place to take our dog to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had seen the hotel for years but had never stayed there. We were very pleased with our room overlooking the pier and the entire staff was very friendly and welecomed out dog. We will go back.

Room was spacious, view of ocean on balcony. Access to the beach from the hotel.
I was worried that it might smell like dog since its animal friendly but the room was clean and fresh.
First time here and would come back again.

This hotel is literally right on the beach--a rare treat. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Lobby has a small gift shop, lots of local info, and a decent continental breakfast in the morning. The property has showers for post-beach clean up, barbecues, picnic tables, and lots of outdoor seating. We loved our stay here.

Thank you, “Namegirl” for your descriptive review of our motel and outdoor facilities. Shoreline Inn… on the beach is definitely right on the beach, as our name indicates. Of our 29 rooms 18 of them are beach front with panoramic ocean views of the pacific, and we are the only beachfront motel between Monterey and Pismo Beach that’s right on the water. We hope to see you back soon at the Shoreline Inn… on the beach.

Our first trip to Shoreline Inn was Mother's Day 2012. We had been looking for a place like this for years, after the first night we Knew we would not be staying anywhere else - Ever !! People say it's all about Location !! - True - But when you add super clean rooms, great staff, and pet friendly what more can you ask for? Not much ! The beds are very comfortable. The views from the beachfront rooms is beyond fantastic ! It is quiet at night - even with pets - when you leave your window open all you hear is the sounds of the surf. A person never knows what you might see outside your window - pelicans fishing - dolphins playing - surfers - a seagull stealing someone's lunch - and that's the short list !! We had plenty of choices of adventures to go on - or not. The staff is always willing to give "fun" ideas of where and when activities are happening. We prefer short trips over long, therefore we have been taking several short trips over the last year!! When we are here we have the luxury of being on the go or becoming a "beach bum". We learned early on to make reservations as early as possible. We now consider Cayucos and Shoreline Inn our "official" home away from home !!!!!!

Room Tip: Beachfront rooms have the best views. Lobby building rooms are larger. If you have mobility problems...
