On Washington's coast, The Canterbury Inn has been in business for over 50 years. The distinct waterfront location brings the comforts of home and a beach vacation together. The Canterbury Inn features nearby beach access, manicured grounds, BBQ areas, indoor swimming pool/hot tub, spectacular ocean views, guest laundry, pet friendly rooms, kitchens, flat screen TVs, gas fireplaces and more. We even have complimentary board games for those rainy days. While we may not be the newest location in Ocean Shores, we are pride ourselves to be a clean and friendly establishment in which our customers are more than just a head in a bed. Come see why generations have been making The Canterbury Inn their "beach place in Ocean Shores."

Awesomeness. It was very clean and comfortable stay. Dog friendly even though we didn't have a dog the dogs there were nice. Ocean is a short walk away. Restaurants near by. We will go again because it was nice.

Hotel's Favourite
Amazing customer service, very welcoming. Hotel is older then many around. However, it's very clean, and well maintained. Our room was well stocked with all needed amenities. The ocean views are unbeatable. We enjoyed our stay, and would recommend.

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the fabulous views from a 3rd floor room. We were built in 1966 and therefore like you said are much older than some. Our maintenance staff has been working hard to keep the property updated. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the compliments on the staff. We are truly blessed to have such wonderful employees. We hope you will come again the next time you are visiting Ocean Shores!

We booked this stay sort of last minute. Staff was super friendly and helped whenever asked. The access to the beach was awesome and the room was cozy. What more could you want? Only "complaint" would be better signage for the beach access, but we found it without trying too hard. Definitely would recommend and would stay again.

Thank you for the suggestion regarding the beach access signage. We do not own the land the access goes down the city does, so we are restricted on what we can do. We will suggest to our owners that perhaps they consider something on our property as you approach it. We are glad it was a great value and stay. We hope you will be back!

The Canterbury was amazing Crome the minute we arrived until we checked out. The Lobby was clean and inviting and the front desk was friendly and professional! The room was beautifully decorated and very clean! There were many personal touches, pictures and furniture etc. that made it so comfortable stay. I loved the kitchenette and the big windows and sliding door and porch. The bed was so comfortable! It felt like a true vacation 🥰
