“BIRD'S EYE VIEW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The hotel has lovely water views and is just off Hwy 101. Althought it is not located downtown, it is still within a very short distance and for the enthusiastic walker a nice 15 minute stroll down to the center of it all is doable. Overall this hotel is nice, quiet and romantic. No wonder they have won many chain awards.

It was my Fiance's Birthday weekend and we stayed Friday - Sunday. We were very lucky for the weather was beautiful and in the 70's. The location is very convenient just off the highway and easy access yet the sound was not noticeable in the room. The rooms were very nice and clean with a great balcony that look out to the ocean. The location along the ocean was really outstanding with walking trails along the beautiful coast. They provided a morning breakfast that very good. When staying in, we enjoyed the pool and spa area. In the evenings we watch some beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed our long weekend here and would certainly return and recommend this place highly!

We loved our stay at the Shelter Cove Lodge. The view from our room was worth the stay. Even though we had alittle rain while we were there. It did'nt stop us from enjoying the beauty of our surroundings.Our room was very clean and the bed was so soft.

I just loved the place from the moment we got here. Me and my girlfriend were on a road trip along the Pacific coast highway and choose Shelter Cove as our stop for the Valentine's day weekend. Everything during the stay was almost perfect.

We took one of the ocean view rooms and managed to get a manager discount for one day. However the second day was pretty expensive for us since it was the President's weekend. But what the hell, we decided to splurge and it was well worth it. The rooms were big, the view was gorgeous, Bed was comfy and bathrooms professionally clean. Another good thing I really liked was their well laid out complimentary continental breakfast. They had plenty of options to choose from (not just a namesake breakfast) and it tasted fresh and delicious. They have some contract with a local bakery so do try their muffins.

We spent one night with our dog at the end of February. The room was upscale and comfortable; the bathroom had a long granite countertop which I love for putting on all my stuff. They brought a basket of goodies for my dog too! The view was fantastic from Rm 803. There was a local pizzeria that delivered a yummy gluten free pizza that was the best I have ever eaten. We will stay here again!

We loved our stay! This is one of the nicest, cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in. The bed was one of the most comfortable ever. The restaurant recommendations in the guest binder were spot on. We loved the walking trails to shell beach. Views from our room were fantastic! It could not have been a more perfect weekend.

Room Tip: We asked for an upper floor room away from the pool area so it would be quiet. Our request was fulfi...
