The Canterbury in provides peace and solace away from a busy world. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms and common areas are comfortable and quiet. The large swimming pool and selection of movies, games, puzzles, and a lending library also make it the perfect retreat in sunny or stormy weather.

The Inn is exactly like what you see in the picture so no surprises when you arrive. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The view from my room was great. The suites are fully stocked so you don't need to bring a thing except a umbrella.

With all the amenities you could think of. Clean, warm, cozy. The kitchenette was completely stocked. The bed was incredibly comfortable. We loved sitting at the little breakfast table watching the deer. There are movies and games to borrow.

Had a very nice and clean one bedroom condo. Everything you need is there. We were on the 3rd floor room 303 so you could see the ocean waves. Also a lot of deer that come by for snacks. Very tame. It was very quiet and peaceful and relaxing and hope to return someday.

The Canterbury Inn staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished and the bed was comfy! They were one of the most pet-friendly places we have stayed and I did not hear any of the other canine guests at all during the night. We would definitely return! Thanks.

Clean, quiet and spacious. Our room had a small kitchen, which had all the cooking essentials including a coffee pot with filters. Pool is a bit small, but very clean. Fantastic place to stay in Ocean Shores.
