For our 42nd anniversary we went back to the Canterbury Inn where we had stayed shortly after our marriage. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The room was open with a great ocean view. Clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The gas fireplace added to the overall warmth and charm. As always we were...

I enjoyed the room and the beds were amazing... very comfortable for my family, and the price was very reasonable for the room. Service was great , I have no complaints for the days I stayed and we can wait to go back n stay there again.

Very quiet and clean. An older development but very roomy. Enjoyed watching the deer in the morning and evening. Town is about a mile away.Enjoyed the extra touches from the housekeeper. We had a one bedroom suite. Enough room to have privacy with living room, kitchen and bedroom. Would have liked to have been able to turn the gas fireplace...

We took a spur of the moment weekend trip to Ocean Shores and stayed at the Canterbury Inn. Since we knew that it was going to be rainy and cold we booked a unit on the third floor so we could at least see the ocean! We had a lovely view and a lovely stay at this property. We were...

Our room was well set up for friends and our dog. It was large enough for friends to come over for dinner and nice to have the dog bowls, towels and dog treats in the room. Bed is comfortable and we enjoyed the view and staff. Thank you.

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...
