The Shilo Inn is close to the ocean and right next to shopping. I also noted that it is very dog friendly. In the hallway which our room was located, the rooms included dogs of all shapes and sizes so if you are a dog owner and don't want to board your dog while you take a vacation to the beach, this is the place. Overall, everything was clean, the restaurant served good food and the health club was well maintained. The TVs in my room were a little old but there were three of them and who goes to the ocean to watch TV anyway. We had a good time. Also, using the Code "tripad" got us a very reduced rate.
