“Most Amazing Birthday Weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

WOW! I love this property! Loved it so much that I came back two weekends in a row! This past weekend visit was for my 39th birthday! Such a clean, uniquely designed property. Paul, the property Manager went above and beyond his duties to ensure that we were at our "home away from home"! The nightly bonfires combined with the freshness of the Pacific Ocean was priceless! The homemade cookies greet you at the reception desk as if they were made by Mom! I cannot say enough about my experience at Shoreline Cottages! I travel all over the world....this is one of my favorites!

This is a clean simple motel, on the main road. It is convenient but overpriced. You are paying for a clean bed – nothing more. It is essentially a large parking lot with a few small rooms build on it. Nice if you are driving through, but definitely not a vacation facility.

Room Tip: away from the road....

Thank you for your review. We pride ourselves on being a clean and comfortable property. Im sorry you felt we were over priced. We our considered one of the best values in town, and priced under our competitive set, and also by trip advisor. I think in your brief stay in the family room which is our basic room you were unable to truly enjoy our property. We have rooms with full kitchens which our ideal for the weary traveler who would like to cook dinner in there room, and enjoy one of our free complementary movies we offer. We are also ideal for families on extended stays as well. Alot of travelers enjoy our bar b que area with the new grill we just added as well as the double burner stand that makes it ideal for family's to cook out side. If its a bit chilly you can enjoy the fire pit that we provide wood for. We also our pet friendly if you would like to bring you four legged companion, and have a acre behind the property for you to walk your dog or just a five minute walk from hare creek beach. Or you may choose to just unwind in our hot tub that is on a enclosed deck for privacy. We also have suites that have there own private deck if you would just like time to your self. So we would love for you to come back and enjoy our property and the many things we have to offer. We do not consider ourselves a 5 star ritzy motel. We like to think of ourselves as a home away from home for all to enjoy from couples to families, and kids really enjoy the freedom of our park like setting, and no having to be stuck in your room. During the winter our prices do drop and we have winter rates. Once again thank you for your review, and we hope you had a safe trip home, and would love to see you in the future.

We stayed here for only one night and it was amazing! We pulled in at night and they had Lights on the trees and a big fire pit for all to enjoy!
They greeted us with a fresh baked cookie! The rooms all gave a 1/2 kitchen and the bathroom is really good sized!
4 of us shared one room!
We will stay here again!

We stayed only one night and I wish it were longer! We pulled in at dark and they had lights on the trees and a campfire going! When we checked in we got a fresh baked cookie! The rooms have a 1/2 kitchen and are private cottages! Loved this place!
You really feel like you are in a cozy beach town !

These little cottages are a very nice place to stay in Coastal California. The staff was very helpful and offered all kinds of suggestions for food and activities. The rooms were very clean with both a fridge and a microwave and even a little countertop space and a sink. The bathrooms were very large for a hotel. They are right off the highway but easy to miss if you are not looking for them.

They are working to update the rooms -- I feel they are better suited for a longer stay as they do have kitchenettes. Bed was comfortable. They have a spa. No breakfast but they do have cookies.

Kind of hard to see from the road -- right across from a mini mart and next to Hidden Pines.

A most pleasant experience all around. New owner, Paul, is friendly and helpful. This was our second stay at Shoreline simply because the first time was so nice. The kitchen was well stocked with everything one needs to prepare a meal. I recommend without reservation!
