“Enjoyable Getaway”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Only time for a one night stay for our anniversary, but it was great. We were pleasantly surprised with some sparkling cider, chocolate & a personal note of congratulations. The room was clean, spacious & offered all the nice amenities, including a balcony to sit on and enjoy the waves. The desk staff was helpful & explained many restaurant choices & we really enjoyed the Café della Via for our special dinner. The town has many shops to visit & a nice pier to stroll along, so I would highly recommend this motel.

This Inn is, I think, family run. The rooms were clean, although sometimes hard to get an ocean view room. Smokers were catered for with a small smoking area overlooking the beach, which I appreciated.

Cayucos itself is a small town but there is a lot to see in the area.

Room Tip: Book early for a room with an ocean view. It's worth it. You will see the sea otters from your...

Thank you for your review. You are right, Cayucos is a small town, but there are lots of things to see in the area. Many of the guests love it for it central spot along the California Central Coast. The Shoreline Inn is family owned and operated and we try to make our guests feel as though they are part of the family. We hope you will visit us again when you are in California

I love coming to Cayucos and staying at the Shoreline Inn. I've stayed here twice now, and I have another visit booked for February. I stay in an oceanfront room on the second floor, and the view is just spectacular. You're right on the water. And it's quite a view to wake up to. The rooms are very clean, the staff are friendly, and you can't beat the hotel location. It's just an overall great experience!

Room Tip: Book an oceanfront room, the view is worth it.

We took a last minute trip here to enjoy a couple days with our Navy Sailor home on leave and our Labrador. I really can't imagine being any happier. The room was very nice...not super fancy, but very nice. Only pet smell came from our own dog, happened to rain while we were there :-). The place is right on the beach...great coffee shop just across the street and lots of pet friendly restaurants nearby. This would be a very good place regardless...but, if you have a dog in tow, it is perfect. The service was excellent...room nice and location is perfect! Worked great for us.

Room Tip: The rear building has the best views...but anything is good and the people at the desk are really he...

Thank you for your review of the Shoreline Inn. We are glad you and your family had a wonderful time and that you enjoyed our rooms. Many of our guests enjoy bringing their four legged friends, since Cayucos is a great pet town with lots of pet friendly restaurants and of course, the beach to play with. Please thank your Navy Sailor for his/her service to the good U.S. of A. We hope to see you and your family again…on the beach.

We used to stay in Pismo every year just before the holidays start but once discovering Cayucos no need to drive further. The hotel is right on the water and the rooms are good sized with ocean views. As others have mentioned dog friendly, reasonable rates and friendly staff all in a centrally located spot make this a winner. Park the car cause there's no need to drive once the sun sets, We'll be back.

Because of its mild climate, quiet towns and beautiful beaches, the Central Coast is the perfect Winter-Getaway place. Thank you for mentioning our ocean views and staff. We are very glad that you had a wonderful time and will see you again soon

I almost don't want to tell my fellow travelers how good this place is...but I will (and will keep it simple). Perfectly located on the beach, unobstructed sunset views, clean and remodeled, friendly staff, reasonably priced, dog friendly with treats, breakfast in the morning, warm cookies and coffee in the PM, walking distance into town for dinner.

I have found my new favorite hotel on the Central Coast and can't wait to come back.

Cayucos is one of the last secret getaways in California and we are glad you found the Shoreline Inn. Cayucos sunsets, especially in the winter, are wonderful and our guests love them. Thank you for not keeping us a secret. We will see you on the beach.

Cayucos is a sleepy little town. We love it! The Shoreline Inn is right on the beach. Price is beyond reasonable, almost cheap for what you get. Clean rooms. Most have been updated. Friendly staff. Most rooms have a full ocean view.
