Room was clean and nice. People next door were smoking and we complained because smoke was coming in our room and nothing was done but said that they were not staying another night. Also my husband noticed problem with the building (hurricane ties rusted out) and that it would not be safe in an earthquake. Rickety pieces of board pathway... More

I apologize that you didn't have great service when it comes to smoking. That is absolutely not acceptable and I will definitely look into it. I am new to the property as General Manager and we are working on building maintenance currently. Unfortunately the pathway is not something we constructed or are allowed to maintain. Over the years the foliage... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2016

Had room #314/top/corner. Had sweeping 180 views of beach and ocean. Views are from living, dining and king bed rooms. Watched full moon setting on ocean. Nothing more beautiful! There were deer on the back lawn as well as all over the peninsula. The room was spotless and had all amenities. The indoor pool was warm and hot tub was... More

We really liked the one bedroom condo we rented at the Canterbury Inn. We were on the bottom floor and had a visitor. The visitor was a local deer. She walked right up to the patio door to see if we had an treats for her. It was very convenient walking to the beach. The trail is from the back... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond and especially for posting the lovely picture of your visitor. While first floor rooms may not have wonderful views, we have found that many of our guests sure do love the deer. We hope you will stay with us again. More

Asked for a room on the 3rd floor as others suggested for the view and it was great! We were able to sit and see the ocean even if we didn't want to go outside. Funny out of date furniture but cozy room. Relaxing getaway.

We are so happy that the view didn't disappoint. We are currently working with our individual owners to suggest more updated furnishings. If you ever stay again our Sleeper Unit (king bed but no view), our Jacuzzi (no view) unit, room 308 (studio with view), and room 301 (2 bedroom with partial views) are more updated. More

We decided on a whim to spend the weekend here one last time before we move & couldn't be happier that we did. Staff was so friendly & helpful.

Ocean Shores is a nice getaway from city life. The Canterbury is located in the central hotel strip area. The suites are individually owned, but all suites appear to have the same outdated furniture from the 80s complete with the decor. The rooms need serious updating - I.e. face lift renovations are required. While there was a flat screen in... More

Full kitchen and fireplace, dishes and linens included. Indoor pool and hot tub. Clean and comfortable. Nice grass lawn in back. Walking distance to the beach and very close to mini-golf, go-karts and grocery store. Reasonably priced.

Had a studio dog friendly room on the ground floor. Very clean and well appointed enen provided a doggie towel, bowls and treat. Enjoyed the friendly deer in the morning. They look to be very well fed. Will definitely stay there again but will probably upgrade to a 1 bedroom for extra relaxing space.

As for the hotel itself, I liked the staff and the location very much - just past the dunes from the ocean. There wasn't a breakfast or anything but the place is fairly close to other things. I stayed in #207- room # is important because each room has a different condo owner who furnishes the room. Cute decor but... More

I appreciate your in depth review and wanted to assure you as the new General Manager I will look into the bed issue in 207. A slanting bed is not what we want and I appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Please feel free to ask for me directly so I can make sure you don't have this issue... More
