Stayed here with my son whilst traveling from SF to LA. We weren't sure what type of place we would stay in as we didn't pre book anything. Pulled into Cayucos and attracted to the Shoreline Inn by its great display of Christmas lights. Friendly lady at check in offered us a few room types and we chose one. Check...

I extremely enjoyed my one night stay at the Shoreline Inn. The room was quiet and clean and right next to the ocean! When I am up in the area again I absolutely will be staying there. The continental breakfast was the perfect way to start my second day of travel after waking up to the pleasant sound of waves...

If you travel with your dog(s) and feel strongly that you prefer to sleep next to the ocean, then this is a place for you. If not, see my comments in the third paragraph. The motel caters to pet owners. When you walk into your room there is a special towel hanging up to dry off your dog. The grounds...

Enjoyed the stay but the property seems to be too pet friendly dogs were every where. Our room had a pet towel that looked like it should have been thrown away, we were not asked nor did we ask about the pet policy but we would not have stayed in a room where pets were allowed. The smokers section was...

We appreciate your concerns mentioned in your review. It is important for guests to know that we are a pet friendly hotel and that all of our rooms accommodate up to two animals. Also, smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property except for one designated patio area with two picnic tables. It is difficult to meet everyone's expectations and...

Thank you for taking the time to share your Shoreline Inn travel experience. We appreciate your input regarding the continental breakfast, unfortunately the motel wasn't built with enough space for a kitchen to offer a hot breakfast. We look forward to seeing on your next trip to Cayucos. Laila Kollmann

Travelling down Highway 1 we stopped overnight at the Cayucos Shoreline Inn. It was comfortable, spacious, we had a sea view, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

Cayucos is such a great place. It's beautifully kept up. The towns people are always friendly. There is always good food and fun to be had. This was our first stay at CSI/OTB. It's right on the beach with immediate access. The continental breakfast included was perfect for us. There are eateries, tasting rooms, delis, etc. all within walking distance....

Just a perfect spot and we had a great recommendation for dinner. The view was super, the weather great and a fine place to stop after a tour of San Simeon. We would return if in the area ever again. Just a solid place.
