“Great overnight stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Before leaving the UK, we had decided to stay overnight in Cayucos as part of our journey from LA to San Francisco, on the final leg of a trip back from New Zealand and Fiji. The Shoreline Inn was chosen and pre-booked and proved to be a great choice, being friendly, relaxed,overlooking the beach and so close to restaurants.

We are so glad to hear that you had a great overnight stop here with us at Shoreline Inn… on the beach. Cayucos is located right in between Los Angeles and San Francisco which, makes a great mid coastal stop while driving through the scenic highway 1. We hope to see you again in the future!

The Shoreline Inn is right on the beach! and we had a wonderful stay. We kept the door open all night so I could hear the ocean. The bed was great. It was in the center of downtown and was nice to be able to walk to all restaurants and shops, pier and beach. We had an amazing time & can't wait to visit again.

Dear Andrew C.,

We are excited to hear that you had a wonderful stay and will be visiting again. Our location truly cannot be beat; we are blocks away from all of the restaurants, shops, and steps away from the beach. We look forward to seeing you back in Cayucos.

Not too "touristy". Loved this motel! Small two story motel with a large grass backyard and roomy patio area. Just a jump over the 3foot wall will land you on the beach - or, you can take the path. Every room has a sliding door to the backyard patio area, complete with lawn chairs. Very friendly staff.
The darling town is famous for Brown Butter Cookie Company, and has several wine tasting shoppes.

Dear Drmack48,

We are so glad to hear that you loved Shoreline Inn… on the beach and enjoyed the our beachfront patio area. The beachfront building is steps away from the sand, and we are within walking distance from most of the restaurants, shops, and the famous Brown Butter cookie company. We hope your return to the Shoreline Inn… on the beach during your next trip to Cayucos, California.

We normally rent a house when we go to Cayucos, but this time it was just me and my out-of-state dad. We had a wonderful stay at the Shoreline Inn. I kept the door open all night so I could hear the ocean. The bed was super comfortable. I would definitely think about staying there again!

We spent two nights at the Shoreline and had two rooms to accommodate our family. They were both so well set up. My husband and I had a single king bed which left room for a whole sitting area including a sofa and a table where we could play family card games. The other room had two kings with a nice little divider between them. Both rooms had an outside balcony with view of the beach to the side. The rooms and bath were clean and well kept. It was fantastic to be right on the beach, to watch the sunset and to hear the surf at night. We enjoyed being able to just walk up the main street of this quintessential little beach town. We will definitely stay there if we are in the area again.

Dear Carol H.

It thrills us to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Shoreline Inn… on the beach. Our Deluxe room with two king beds and an ocean view is a great room for guest that are traveling with their family. They are double the size of our beachfront building and have a great view of the beach and the Cayucos Pier. The amazing sunset and soothing sounds of the ocean are definitely a plus that will keep you coming back to the sweet town of Cayucos.

This hotel is scrupulously clean. The family room we had was very big. I was disappointed a bit as I had requested an ocean view and yet our room was right on the end by the road with a partial view only from the balcony. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. The value for money was great. I would just check exactly what they mean when they say "ocean view" but I would also definitely recommend this hotel.

Dear Buckingham63,

Thank you for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed your Deluxe room with two king beds and an ocean view. Our Deluxe building has rooms with ocean views and partial ocean views, if your looking for a panoramic ocean view, the beachfront building is a better option for you. We have lots of pictures on our website so that guests can better understand the view of the room they are booking. We are honored that you will recommend the Shoreline Inn… on the beach and hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

The Shoreline Inn is right on the beach! Perfect! The rooms are comfortable, a bit small and old bathrooms etc... But the view and nearness of the ocean make up for it! Love listening to the waves day and night. Nice to be able to walk to all restaurants and shops, pier and beach :)
My only complaint was the cleaning service- I only had my room cleaned once, because I was in it until noon on the other days, which was my choice. So I only have one day to judge the cleaning on - But when I came back to my room after it had been cleaned- it was Very Dusty, nothing had been dusted. There was trash on the floor in about 3 different places, I believe some trash may have blown off or been knocked off the table by the back sliding door. I didn't receive any new plastic cups. The area around the coffee maker was dirty. Poor poor cleaning!!!!

Room Tip: The downstairs ocean front rooms are awesome but be prepared there is a low brick wall that does blo...
