Wish the system would allow me to give this inn a strong 4.5/5 because it was really charming. No AC, which probably isn’t needed most of the time. It was a little warm in Sept., but still wasn’t bad. Oceanfront rooms are a bit small, but they are nicely remodeled and kept in good condition (as was the entire property). It was nice to walk out of the room and be beachfront! Everyone we encountered was friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had to make one small change to our reservation early on and it was handled with ease. We also had a phone call the week out to confirm and then another one the day of arrival. I wish all hotels were like this…Everyone at the hotel, employees and guests, seemed to be dog lovers. It really was SUPER dog friendly. Many of the guests seemed to be repeat visitors. The hotel was in an excellent area that allowed us to explore Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, and Cambria with ease. Not being familiar with the area, the Shoreline Inn seemed to be a good pick and it lived up to our expectations. We can’t wait to return!

So we're not the most picky of travellers, but even if we were I think we'd struggle to fault any aspect of our stay. Check-in was a breeze and our room was exactly what it said on the tin - newly refurbished and updated, and with a panoramic view of the Pacific to die for - and just as importantly, comfortable chairs on which to sit while taking it all in (that and a fridge big enough to store all those essentials of life - which generally come in 6-packs and are best served chilled). Some may argue that the rate doesn't include breakfast - but frankly you'd pay anywhere from $100 - $150+ for a comparable ocean view anywhere else on the Central Coast. We just pre-prepared breakfast and following a trip to the nearby supermarket a carton of our favourite plant-based milk was nestling in that fridge - breakfast with a view was sorted! Think it is safe to say that we'll be back...

Responded Jun 20, 2022
Thank you for your kind review! I'm so glad you we were able to enjoy our remodeled rooms. We're happy to say that almost all the new furniture is now installed as we experienced some delays. It's a good thing the ocean doesn't need refurbishing! It's always a beautiful sight to see and hear. Looking forward to having you back, Laila Kollmann

Checking into the hotel was quick and pleasant. We were told breakfast was discontinued but there are cafes nearby and they put out cookies in the afternoon. Coffee is always available. It was a bit disappointing for the price of the hotel but we were fine and able to find a new place to try. Walking into our room (104), we were pleasantly surprised how spacious and comfortable it was. Ours had a King, double and sofa along with a microwave (though the clock light wouldn't quit flickering a lot), mini refrigerator, huge TV mounted on the wall (bonus!), and the neatest end tables with sand and shells inside. The shower head was removable and could be put on lower wall mounts. There are real mugs and glasses in the room, wine cork, steel ice bucket and plenty of outlets for CPAP machines and electronics. The coffee in the room is a good strong blend and not watery tasting like some other hotels. We were given plenty of packets but not enough sugar/creamer (only two packs.) That was Ok since I was able to get more from the office along with some great creamers. I thought most pets were to be on the bottom floor but maybe I was wrong. Upstairs had a dog that woke early and thumped around before they'd leave for the day. I didn't say anything though. It was quiet otherwise. The cons were minimal. The closet was inside the bathroom where the sink area is. If you are taking a shower, the only door shuts off the closet area. The TV mounting was great but maybe have it in a different spot during the remodel so others on the couch and both beds can watch. Only the sofa and double bed or the double and king could watch. It would have been nice to be able to wash our clothes after coming from both Washington (son), and Oregon (me), but she said there were no guest laundry facilities. There was no place in Cayucos to do so either. We wound up washing them very late in a hotel on our way back up to the PNW. We thought the sofa was a sleeper but it wasn't. A broom in the room would be nice. Shoreline was close to the beach, food, stores and more. You could hear the waves and see the ocean from the room though partially. I'll be happy to stay here again and excited to see what the remodel will look like.

This place is such a find! Right on the beach, beautiful views. Real glasses and coffee mugs. Clean, tidy, well designed room. In the center on town with access to grocery, restaurants etc. Staff were very helpful. You feel like you have a Malibu beach house for a very reasonable price.

Dear Guest, Thank you for comparing us to a Malibu beach house! What a compliment and it's very much appreciated. We're glad you enjoyed the location as well. There's really no need to drive once you're at the Shoreline Inn. We hope you come back for another visit! Take care, Laila Kollmann

The Shoreline Inn is one of our favorite places. They have a variety of rooms - all with amazing views and great access to the beach. The staff was friendly and always available if needed. It's also pet friendly. We have a service dog and they were very welcoming. Our room was first floor - two doubles, which we would have preferred a king but since we booked last minute we were happy to have a room! Be sure to book in advance for your preferred room type. Easy access to the beach. A lot of restaurants, shops, etc. within walking distance. This was our second visit and I'm sure it won't be our last! Thanks for another great visit - we should have stayed longer!

This is the only one hotel in the beach & direct access. The room we stayed was a corner of upstairs with fireplace had magnificent ocean view. Also pet friendly,if you are with dog, stay 1st floor with grass yard. You'll see beautiful sunset.It's a very small & quiet town.I'd recommend & would like to stay this hotel again

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this little gem. We had a ocean front king room upstairs. These rooms are not huge but are worth it for the view. We slept every night with the slider open and listened to the waves. It’s a great location right on the beach. It was clean, had a nice little fridge, microwave and nice little balcony. Will definitely be returning.

Spectacular location! We stayed in Room 122, a queen and a full bed. The only thing separating the room from the ocean is a small wall and a grassy area--we left our sliding glass door open all night and heard the waves...wonderful. My only issue is: I understand we are living with covid, so the breakfast service has been eliminated. We had just come from the Sequoias and also a stay on Catalina Island, and every hotel has adapted their breakfast service (example: delivering it to your room, etc). For the price, I had expected that they would find some way to give you breakfast as other hotels have managed it quite nicely. That being said, perhaps it is done to encourage you to buy breakfast from local businesses, which we did. There is a great coffee place just across the street. There is a coffee maker in the room. Use your own water if you can, because the taste of the coffee made with tap water was un-drinkable. Two very MINOR issues, none of which would deter me from staying there again! Like I said, location is UNBEATABLE. And dog friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and sharing your thoughts. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and our amazing Cayucos beach. At the moment, serving or delivering breakfast is not an option on our property and we're exploring options for the future. Thank you for your patience and checking out other breakfast places in town. We hope the restaurant list given to you at arrival was of assistance. We hope you come again and thank you for being our guest! Sincerely, Laila Kollmann

We booked this trip as a “safe” getaway from being stuck in our home for months during Covid. The Inn got wonderful reviews and we love the rustic beach. We booked it because it was dog friendly on a dog friendly beach. Boy, nothing could be further from the truth. First of all, we booked a room on the first floor so we could take our dogs out our patio door for walks and to the beach. There is a nice grassy area, but absolutely NO privacy between your room and those next to you. There were several dogs staying there and our dogs had the nerve to bark at the other dogs, who, by the way, barked at our dogs. Dogs are supposed to be on lead, but several weren’t. Then we had to deal with children looking IN OUR room to look at our dogs, so they barked. Talk about invasion of privacy! The room was very small, so when they looked in our room, they could see everything! We had people yelling at us to clean up our dog’s poop, when they hadn’t even pooped! Even though it was during Covid, most guests weren’t wearing masks, but wanted to pet our dogs. The worse part was being told by the front desk clerk that there had been complaints about our dogs barking. Yes, our dogs bark at times, but a dog friendly hotel should know this. Our dogs were barking at people running across the yard because they wanted to play but were tied to our chairs, per the hotels rules. Besides the dog issues, the hotel is no more than a two star hotel. The location is the only thing going for it. The rooms are small, no storage and super crappy coffee maker. There was no housekeeping because of Covid, but we were not given any extra garbage bags or a broom to sweep the sand out of the room. You can check my Trip Advisor record. I have only written good reviews. This place is so not dog friendly that I had to write this review. We got the feeling that if you are a “regular”, you can do anything. Save your money and get an Airbnb. The beach is not worth this mess of an Inn. As I write this, we are waiting for the manager to call us. We are leaving early and the desk clerk said they won’t refund the two nights we aren’t staying. The manager has not called us, so I guess they don’t care about us or our unhappiness with our stay.
