My fiancé and I have been to the Canterbury Inn twice. We have had rooms with kitchenettes both times plus a balcony. The staff is welcoming and friendly. You are not far from the beach, activities, and restaurants.

We spent 4 days over Thanksgiving at the Canterbury, with our dog in tow. We chose this property because of the dog friendly policy, which was great. We had a ground floor studio unit with a kitchen and sliders to the lawn outside, making it easy for us to take our dog in and out. When we checked in, we...

We can't thank you enough for your detailed response regarding our property and your stay. Each unit is individually owned so responses like this are imperative so that we can encourage owners to update their personal units. As the new General Manager I will make sure I look into the issues you experienced with the flower arrangements, moldings, and TV....

What a lovely room, lovely visit, lovely time, lovely hotel pick for our 35th anniversary! Despite the weather, it was warm enough to leave the slider open & hear the ocean at night. Would definitely love to return!

In planning our travel to Washington, the Canterbury Inn seemed to be "on the beach" However, there is a large sand dune covered with foliage between the hotel and the beach and access over the dune is severely limited if at all possible. This is really a "hotel" of condos that are made available as hotel rooms. It would be...

We were here for one night only, right as Hurricane Oho passed by, so it was a deliciously stormy weekend. We got a 3rd floor room to ensure an ocean view, and were able to check in early and watch the storm all afternoon and evening. The check-in experience was pleasant, the kitchenette had everything I needed to make breakfast...

We had a great time. Although the front desk clerk was flirting with my boyfriend. lol.. but it was very clean and bed was comfy. We had a bottom floor room that faced towards the ocean. The little kitchette was clean and nice. We did all our meals there in the room. I even brought my own little propane BBQ...

These lovely units offer excellent value, all the amenities you would want, are on the beach, and a short walking distance to the middle of town. Our unit had a kitchen and was well stocked with all items needed for cooking. We had an amazing view on the 3rd floor and were lucky to wake up to an incoming storm!...

Very happy with our stay. The hotel is very family & pet friendly. Lots of room for the little ones to play. We saw dear in the back yard too. All rooms have a view of the ocean which is very nice. It was clean and quite.

This is one of the original "big three" hotels built in the new Ocean Shores development in the early 1960's. I would not have been surprised to find a touch of "faded glory" here. But that was definitely NOT the case. We enjoyed a wonderful family weekend in suite 102, and found everything beautifully maintained and current. This is a...
