We had a wonderful two day stay with friends. Very personable staff and wonderful full breakfast each morning. Would definitely recommend and, "We shall return."

Great location, excellent staff, terrific restaurant. Great charming old inn atmosphere.
Loved the idea that the rooms are open so you can walk around, see them all, then pick the room you like. (Then of course you get a key and can lock your door). Most have outdoor space.

Room Tip: This is actually two inns that were attached some years ago. Each side has a slightly different fee...

I had to laugh at a recent review from a couple who stayed at this Inn on July 29th. We stayed there the night before and thought it was pretty tacky too. It is decorated in the style of the 1880's and has probably been that way for that many years. It did appear to be clean though and our breakfast was very nice. It was surprising that this was the #1 hotel in the town but then the town is really small and there is not much to compare it to.
Not far from the Inn was a great walking/biking trail on a boardwalk that followed the coastline and along the dunes...very pretty

Well maybe the weather played a part - spectacular and sunny during our stay - but we hadn't had so much fun and so much good food and drink in a long time. We rented bikes and rode the Discovery Trail, visited the hotel pub for happy hour, drove up to Oysterville and over to Astoria. What a swell part of the country and what wonderful hospitable innkeepers. Thanks so much for the best of times!

Because according to some of these other reviews, we must have stayed at the evil twin of the Shelburne Inn (masquerading under the same name). The Inn is located on a busy 2 lane road with picturesque garden only feet from traffic, directly across the street from a noisy grocery chain store, next to the chiropractor and chainsaw artist. To get the photos of rooms and property, they had to use camera tricks. We know, we were so shocked by difference in photos and reality that we reconstructed the photos! Parking is hard to come by, both nights of our stay we parked round the block. I cannot imagine a more cluttered or dusty environment, it was like sleeping in a bad museum. Stale, musty closed rooms, tiny, cluttered w/antiques, our 2 small bags filled the only available floorspace on the dusty, threadbare rug. We had to crawl into a bed that was higher than our waists (we're both 5'6") as we stood next to it, bed was 4 " from wall on one side. Getting into bed involved a running leap-difficult in such a small space. Getting up in night was impossible to do w/o waking partner. It was horribly hot when we were there...but only in the room, outside was cool and no one was at desk or available to give us a fan...window would not open, we opened the door (not very secure and woman in adjoining room 10 ft away, lay on her bed fanning herself w/a magazine and complained about spiders and mosquitoes in her room (ours as well). A baby cried all night long in another room. People w/ a grandmother in wheelchair had to carry her into the "accessible" room they'd booked as it wasn't really all that accessible. Breakfast was garnished with wilted fruits that smelled like garbage it had been sitting so long. Same meal both days...too many herbs, flowers, thoughm oddly...not at all tasty. The hosts talked nonstop about themselves, their art, how much they knew about everything, their art, their lives, their art, their inn, their brilliant cooking skills, their art...blah blah blah. But when we asked questions about anything other than THEM, they turned cool and walked off. We'd planned to stay for 5 days but left after 2 horrible nights w/no sleep and multiple bugbites. They'd run our card through for all nights already and refused to refund anything. We were given the option to get a non-transferable voucher for remaining days BUT only good in on weekdays in winter months and expired in 6 months. Don't think so. Wouldn't stay there again even though we lost over $300. And as for all of the "glowing reviews"...good for those people who love this place. Don't know what kind of places they usually stay at...but they can have this one! Martha Stewart? James Beard? The Inn's website makes me laugh.

We stayed three days at the China Beach Resort B&B, which is owned and operated by the Shelburne Inn, and is three miles away from the Inn on the coast overlooking the Baker Bay and the Columbia River. The B&B is a short drive from the Pacific Ocean and the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment. Our first night was at the Audubon Cottage, a small but comfortable and beautifully-decorated cottage, with many Audubon prints on the walls and the most exquisite handcrafted woodwork. The last two nights, we stayed at the lovely remodeled 1907 home; it has three units, but we were the only guests so were able to enjoy the entire living area. The house is amazing with its art, from native Chinook carvings to wonderful oriental furnishings, and particularly its floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the water and the marsh grasses from the living room. The main floor suite has a wonderful sunroom and separate entrance onto the deck. We enjoyed the jetted tubs (in all units) and wonderful breakfasts at the Shelburne Inn. A special romantic getaway!

My husband and I stayed three nights here during our trip to Washington. We loved everything about it! The building was very cool (on the historic register) and the location was central. The staff were all very friendly and we throughly enjoyed our daily trip to the bar at the inn! Our room was on the small side but very comfortable and we had a small deck off the room with
comfy partio chairs. We hope to go back again soon!
