AMAZING!!!!This place was wonderful! There were 5 of us, so we got the 2 bedroom suite. Very clean and friendly staff. Can't wait to return next year. The swimming pool was nice just a bit over board on the rules. The cameras were gigantic!! Other than that it was great

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 had a 3rd floor 1 bedroom unit. Has a private balcony, full kitchen with all accessories you could ever need. Dvd/Vcr combo in living room and a vcr in bedroom, you can rent dvds and vhs tapes from the desk for a nominal fee comparable to a Redbox rental. The kids enjoyed the views and we saw the sunset...

The Canterbury Inn was a great place to stay at Ocean Shores. We had 2 two bedroom condo's on the 3rd Floor. Both rooms had views from their balcony(s). We brought our dog & the room came with dog bowls & a blanket. Short walk to the beach & restaurants. The only complaint I had was spotty Internet .

Spacious, comfortable, and clean two bedroom suite good for family of 3-4. Would book third floor for ocean view. Staff friendly. Older building needs some maintenance (porch deck sagging), but interior well cared for. Pool, hot tub, small workout area and beach access trail enjoyed. Would return here for Ocean Shores stay with family.

*Aside* I really wanted to like this hotel as I stayed here NUMEROUS times growing up, and it was always a family favorite. The fact that I have to write this review should show how poorly and unfairly I was treated, and the blatant disregard to fully do what was right. My family and I stayed here at the end... More

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.
