It's such a great place. I've stayed there many times before. It's had, I think, the warmest swimming pool I've ever swam around in. I could stay at that place for many nights straight. I hope to get a deal sometime for a 2 nights for the price of 1, or a 3 nights for the price of 2, or...

Beautiful room & excellent stay!!! Try the pizza place across the street, Dugan's, very good!!!! Been coming here for over 20 years, same room, always fabulous in the winter! My favorite thing was sitting on the porch listening to the waves crash on the shore, so peaceful!

We took a little mini vacation this week which are usually few and far between due to work. My family and I booked a room at a hotel in town which I will leave anonymous and were treated very poorly and the hotel was awful, and very run down.

We stayed 2 nights on the 3rd floor of the Canterbury Inn and really liked this place. The staff was friendly and efficient and the room was perfect. We would certainly recommend this facility and we will certainly be returning. Good value.

Everyone was friendly and accommodating. It was nice to have a laundry on sight and the kitchen came with all the essentials for cooking, Even with construction going on in pool area it was quiet and clean. I will definitely go back.

This room was exactly as pictures. The staff welcoming once we checked in, the room was clean and comfortable. The added touches for pets, so adorable. We did not have a pet with us. View lovely. The staff had even notified ahead of time pool unavailable and had made arrangements with hotel next door for pool access if wanted. Very...

Our first time in Ocean Shores and everything was great. Our room was spotless, generously-sized, fully furnished and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Even the weather cooperated. The charge was reasonable and the Canterbury's location is central to most activities. I even won at the casino up the road. February is an interesting time to visit....lots of weather,...

Winning at the casino is always a plus! The biggest plus is receiving feedback like this. We may not be the newest hotel but it's our job to be the cleanist and friendliest in town. We know you have lots of options and appreciate you booking with us!

We stayed in a pet friendly suite, nicely furnished, with a well-stocked kitchen that even had pet dishes. The hotel is "on the water" but all hotels in Ocean Shores are set back so you have a walk to get to the beach unless you drive there.
