Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great view, friendly staff, lots of space. We got such a deal - getting a nice, clean, spacious condo, with a view. It was very quiet. The decor style is a bit dated, but we were usually looking at the ocean so we didn't care. Loved it!

This is a cozy place with great ocean views on the third floor. Suites have fire places and kitchens are fully stocked :) Both were spacious, clean, and well furnished. This is my new go to for ocean shores. I've been twice, once in a studio, and once in a one room suite.

Originally planned to bring our dog but made last minute change of plans. It was a nice surprise to walk into our room and discover it was actually more like a 1 bdrm apartment with an amazing ocean view and special amenities to greet our pup! Staff was extremely personable and willing to help make our stay as enjoyable as...

The staff and Shannon (the manager) were incredible from the start of booking the room to check out. When we arrived the studio that we booked did not have a fireplace. We asked if we could upgrade and they gave us not only a fire place but a suite at the same rate. The rooms are cozy and feel like...

A very clean hotel with very helpful staff. We had a very nice 2 days with our boys. Warm and comfortable. The pool and hot tub was very nice. We have stayed at other hotels in ocean shores, this is the best in our experience.

We went to the Canterbury Inn on a last-minute whim to celebrate a "milestone" birthday of mine. When I called to ask a question about ammenities, the front desk person asked why we were coming to the ocean and I mentioned my birthday. Imagine my surprise to see Happy Birthday Patty on their reader board out front when we arrived!...

Great place for a vacation, especially in winter - peace and quiet, spectacular views, friendly , knowledgeable staff, and clean and comfortable condos - with gas fireplaces. I like being able to choose whether to cook or eat out, and a full kitchen with everything you need is one of the reasons I stay here. Always my first choice in...

We loved our holiday apartment at the Canterbury Inn. Very comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, kid and pet-friendly. Direct access to sand dunes and the beach, restaurants and shops in walking distance. Would definitely recommend.

We were very happy with our stay. The condo was perfect, with two separate bedrooms, one and a half baths, a fully stocked kitchen, comfy sofas and a gas fireplace. I made a big batch of chili. We stayed in a corner condo and had a fabulous view. Kevin at the front desk was very helpful and called me to...

“The only criticisms we had of the room were that the bathroom sink drain was slow and the kitchen clock had stopped, and while Housekeeping should probably catch things like that, I didn't consider them significant enough to affect my overall rating.”
