“Awesome Remodel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

I've been going to Oceans Shores for 20 years. This hotel used to be the Gitchie Goomie, the party hotel for college kids. However, there is a new owner now and they did an awesome job remodeling and the price is competeetive. It's like a new hotel. I will definitely stay here everytime time I go to Ocean shores.

Room Tip: Tip the front desk clerk

Disappointment sums up this visit at best.

The web site above is misleading and out dated. Needs to be updated and correct information given.

Late June, a Festival in town. The Indoor pool was "not ready to be open"
It was in the low 60's outside and the heated outdoor pool was open (hummm) BUT it closed at 8pm even when asked to stay open longer to accomidate Guests.

The a different Web site shows pictures of a breakfast buffet that is included supposed to be included with your stay.
They no longer serve breakfast. Nor let you know that in your reservation or upon checking in. (I otherwise would not have booked)

The water is not palatable. It is yellow and tates aweful.

My Husband needed to study and needed the Internet, lets just say he didnt get much studying done. He kept loosing a connection and the Office was not accomidating.

We were quoted one price online (email) and were charged a different price. (they did correct our credit card when we brought it to their attention)

There were several other little things that continued to bug me but will not gointo them.

It is my suggestion to pass to these accomidations unless your really on a budget.

oceanshoresinn, Manager at Ocean Shores Inn & Suites, responded to this review, July 4, 2011
Thanks for staying with us and for taking the trouble to make these helpful comments.

Swimming pool: We advise our guests upon check-in that our pool closes at 8 PM. This is done to assure that other guests are not disturbed by the noise, as many of our guests prefer quiet evenings. We do leave it open until 9 PM on busy nights.

Breakfast: Our own website does not list this amenity, but some of the big online booking agencies such as Priceline show incorrect information. That is one of the problems of booking with online independent travel agencies, and is one of the good reasons for booking directly with a hotel. We have been pestering the online agencies to delete the incorrect information, and we'll continue to do so.

Water: The yellowish tinge to the water is entirely a city water supply problem, not specific to our property. It comes and goes.

Internet service: Our wireless internet connection -- provided free to our guests -- has been very consistent, as this is the first guest who has notified us of a problem. There are several wireless networks in the area, so it's possible this guest clicked on the wrong one. We'll add a note to our guest check-in folio that points out the correct network with which to connect.

Thanks again for giving us a try, and for providing feedback to help us improve the quality of our guest experience.

Right in the area we wanted to be, great access to everything. A golf course right out the door. The lobby is updated and clean, along with the courtyard. Couldn't beat the price for a room with 2 big beds! It even had a small kitchen, and a pool in the courtyard! If I had anything negative to say it would be that we were bummed that the pool closed at 8 pm, and we got there at 7:50pm., and that housekeeping might need to take a closer look. There were blood stains on the sheets and on the shower curtain and a long black hair on the sink in the bathroom. They need to update the icky shower curtain and bleach or replace the sheets, and then I would have no complaints.

We got a very comfortable room on the 3rd floor. It was quiet with a fully equipped kitchen. Great views of the lush green golf course and the ocean can be seen also. The boys loved that they had their own room and bathroom. There was plenty to keep them busy. The place is large with the beach a 2 to 3 minute walk.

Room Tip: Ask for the double view, sea and greens.

It was the first time I visited to ocean shores, This hotel is a great place and affordable price. This hotel is more homey style kind of place. My room had full kitchen with pots and pans. My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights and we loved it. We saved a lot of money by cooking at the room. It felt good to travel and still saved some money. The location was good and close to the beach, we had a nice walk to the beach that only 5 mintiues from the hotel. There was an outdoor pool and a lawn area for us to sit on and eat lunch. The lawn area in the hotel made me feel like I was in a park near the ocean. Our room had the balcany and we enjoyed watching the color of sky at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with balcany

My family and I were looking for an enjoyabloe stay on the Washington Coast. Finding the majority of the name brand hotels booked, we elected to try the Ocean Shores Inn & Suites. Having just recently opend thier doors, we found a number of small things yet to be finished. For example, the ice machines had not yet been installed. The seasonal pool was not yet open. However, both the staff and the room were fantastic. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs, describing the various room types for our selection. The room exceeded our expectations. Not only did it come with a completly stocked kitchen and fireplace; but our family enjoyed individual bedrooms...a pleasant change from the typical "all of your family in one room" set up. I can hardly wait to come back this summer...once everything is up and running.

Room Tip: Rooms without kitchens are cheaper.
