Loved staying here!! They made my life easy and comfortable - for four months - while I was working in Ocean Shores. Management and staff were wonderful, so warm and welcoming; they felt like old friends by the time I left! The room had everything I needed, was clean and quiet, and had an unbelievably comfortable bed! This is now...

Amazing. Had a little trouble upon arrival w/regard to our reservation. Someone else was in the requested room (and we had just confirmed it the week before). We had been placed in a pet friendly room and uncomfortable straight back chairs. I couldn't be in a room where pets are so they did a mad scramble to find another room...

Friendly services (even a small bottle of sampler wine) quiet hotel (couldn't hear our neighbors), smooth and fast check in/check out and pet friendly (which made it easier to travel). One thing know, it is not as close to the beach as advertised, about 1.5/2 mile walk, not bad, but not right outside of it

The staff was probably the nicest people I have met in a hotel. Room was nice. Lobby was like a time warp from the 1950's. Really, really needs to be updated. Nice thing: they have a bunch of tame deer in the back that will come to about three feet from you. Family loved them.

We appreciate the wonderful review about the staff. Our hotel is condo style so all of the rooms are individually owned and decor decisions are made by the owners. We will definitely bring up the feeling about the lobby during our next owners weekend so they are aware of what our guests think. Thank you for letting us know your...

We stayed the weekend at the Canterbury Inn at Ocean Shores. We were very excited that not only was the place pet friendly, our dogs were whole heartedly welcomed. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Our room was clean and comfy with a wonderful view from the balcony. Our room was very reasonably priced. Our whole stay was excellent...

This was the first time we have stayed at the Canterbury Inn and it was such a pleasure, the condo was spacious, the bedrooms were good size and the view was amazing. We usually stay a the hotels but so glad we decided to do something different. We are already talking about returning to the Canterbury Inn.

We had a good time. What I found amazing was how quiet it was and our room was near the elevator. The rooms were a very good value. The staff was very helpful. We have stayed in other hotels in Ocean Shores and will be returning to Canterbury Inn.

If you want to see the ocean, stay in a 3rd floor room! We love the view, the peace and tranquility, and they are pet friendly. Great rooms, comfortable beds that give me some of my best nights sleep, and awesome customer service! This stay we were in room #310. Also love room #305. Both pet-friendly.

We spent two lovely nights here. The room was very clean and we'll appointed. The staff was friendly and efficient. The swimming pool was down for maintenance, but the hotel made arrangements at another hotel for people to use.
