“Don't judge a book by it's cover!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Shoreline motel is owned by a very nice and helpful couple. They seem to be making wonderful improvements from the inside out.
After reading other reviews, I decided to stay at this motel. That decision was a good one to say the least!
The location is perfect!
The view from my room was breathtaking even in the winter.
The room was clean, modern/updated and the bed was comfortable.
I would certainly stay any time I wanted time at the beach.

My only complaint is that I only stayed one night. I should have made it an entire weekend.

An added benefit is that Doug and Megan went out of their way to answer all my questions and gave me fantastic restaurant recommendations.

I look forward to staying at Shoreline Motel again.

We were blessed with the opportunity to spend the 2013 summer (the end of June to the end of September) at one of Shoreline’s beach homes located at 137 Atlantic Avenue. This review is based on that adventure.
“Hidden Gem”
Before this trip, Salisbury Beach was not well known to us. While we didn’t find a secret lagoon or an underwater coral garden, we DID discover a “hidden gem” on the Atlantic Ocean 45 miles north of Boston on the New Hampshire border.
One step out the front door and you’re walking on beautiful, soft sand. A stroll down a mildly sloping sand dune and you’re on a semi-private, very clean beach. The water is clear, cool and refreshing (and was even warm on a few days!). At low tide, the ocean is shallow for a good distance; at high tide, there is enough sandy beach and open space for everyone. It is perfect for walking, jogging, swimming, body boarding, stand-up paddle boarding, bird watching, fishing (one guest caught a 34” striper off the shore from our beach home), or d-e-c-o-m-p-r-e-s-s-i-n-g. If you like a seashore in harmony with nature and without a commercial presence, this pristine, peaceful beach, may be for you. Many friendly residents and their friends and families tend to be here. This was where we soaked in the sun and relaxed!
If you prefer a public beach with a life guard and a small commercial center saturated with the smells of pizza and fried dough and other low-key trappings, and the sights and sounds of old arcades and bars and the like, the “Boardwalk” is only a short walk (about10 minutes) away. You’ll feel like you have stepped back in time here! If, however, newer, upscale places are more your speed, you can escape up the food chain to: the fine dining of “Capri” (so good and so ‘pet friendly’- it even has a separate dining area for doggies… hey, a dog's gotta eat well too!) or “Seaglass” (so close to the ocean you’ll feel you’re in it - exquisite food and atmosphere!) or the live music, cocktails and dancing of “SurfSide.” (It is the “go-to” summer spot. The rooftop deck is perched perfectly above the waterfront. “Reggae Sunday” is great fun - you’ll feel you’re at “the Islands”). During our stay, a crew was on the boardwalk filming a scene from a movie starring Denzel Washington called “The Equalizer.” No, we didn’t get discovered but it was neat to watch!
Riding the surf and hunting for seashells, sand dollars, and sea glass, kept our nine year old daughter in the water all day. She found many treasures! The on-the-water fireworks show every Saturday night at 10 (which we watched from our living room) was a special bonus. And those soothing sounds of ocean waves rhythmically lapping and crashing against the shore lulled us nightly to sleep.
See our postings to view some of the sunrises and sunsets and rainbows and moonscapes we captured at this coastal wonderland.
The accommodations were as represented: the beach home was older with modest updates, but was “on” the ocean with bold, open views of the sparkling, deep blue Atlantic. If only the Presidential Suite at the Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons works for you, look elsewhere. If you want a carefree, casual-no-fuss place to gather and make memories with family and friends, 300 feet from the "Atlantic" where you literally take only one step out your door (instead of a long set of stairs) and you’re in the healing, warm sand, make a reservation now. They book quickly.
Unlike many other beach destinations, this one has low traffic and is close to major roads. It is easy to navigate in and out of and virtually stress-free even in prime time.
Final note: The management team made up of Doug and Megan were absolutely delightful. They were always eager to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. They gave us great recommendations for nearby restaurants and activities. We were glad we followed their advice!!

It was the best trip.

After coming to the Shoreline Motel for many years I was pleasantly surprised to find new management, Doug and Megan, running the motel. Wonderful people who have put attention into the motel and it shows. The rooms décor has been updated and the overall attention was noticeable. Thank you once again for a wonderful retreat!

We were lucky enough to happen upon this motel after a long day of driving and checking other possible lodgings. Discouraged by the grungy offerings and high prices, we had nearly given up when we found this. Megan and Doug could not possibly have been nicer, offering us menus from local restaurants, giving us directions to all the good eateries, and most of all, offering us lodging with a gorgeous ocean view. The property is well-kept, private and removed from the hustle bustle of downtown Salisbury. It feels like a secluded beach hotel. Our accommodations are clean, comfortable, and offer all the amenities--internet, cable television, comfy chairs, and that view. We will definitely tell our friends about this place.

Room Tip: Choose the ocean view rooms. There are also condos and a beach house/duplex that would be a good ch...

Just got back from another awesome weekend at the Shoreline Motel. Had another big group this year, same two rooms, same great service, same awesome view. New management this year and they're doing an incredible job!!
Last year the only complaint we had were the beds.....guess what? Brand new beds this year! We slept so good it was very hard to get up in the morning.
Great to have use of the firepit and gas grills.
I can't say anymore about this place, except that we absolutely cannot wait until next year to come back. Think we may try out one of the condos for a week next year. Three days just isn't enough at this place.
One bad thing completely on us....Poor Bonnie got jipped out of decent tip because WE forgot about her. So if you see this post Bonnie, we will make it up to you!! You do a wonderful job and shouldn't be forgotten!!

We enjoyed our week at this hotel. It was the perfect location. Right on the beach and the condo was big and clean. The fireworks can be viewed from your deck. My favorite part was sleeping hearing the waves. The owners are terrific hosts. Will be back next year!

Room Tip: We had top floor excellent view of the ocean

we stayed there for the first time and we enjoyed are stay here very much and did not want to leave at all. the room was very clean and nice the grill and fire place was nice to use. I will defintly stay here a gain but next time we will stay for a week in stead of 2 night. the housekeepers are also very nice. This motel is right on the beach and is walking distance to the Salisbury shops/bars/restaurants. The staff Doug & Megan are wonderful. They are super friendly.
the room had a coffee maker and a refrig it was the best.
