We took a little mini vacation this week which are usually few and far between due to work. My family and I booked a room at a hotel in town which I will leave anonymous and were treated very poorly and the hotel was awful, and very run down. We decided to leave that hotel so I called the Canterbury...

We stayed 2 nights on the 3rd floor of the Canterbury Inn and really liked this place. The staff was friendly and efficient and the room was perfect. We would certainly recommend this facility and we will certainly be returning. Good value.

Our first time in Ocean Shores and everything was great. Our room was spotless, generously-sized, fully furnished and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Even the weather cooperated. The charge was reasonable and the Canterbury's location is central to most activities. I even won at the casino up the road. February is an interesting time to visit....lots of weather,...

Winning at the casino is always a plus! The biggest plus is receiving feedback like this. We may not be the newest hotel but it's our job to be the cleanist and friendliest in town. We know you have lots of options and appreciate you booking with us!

We stayed in a pet friendly suite, nicely furnished, with a well-stocked kitchen that even had pet dishes. The hotel is "on the water" but all hotels in Ocean Shores are set back so you have a walk to get to the beach unless you drive there.

I love the fact this hotel is dog friendly that is very important to us. The room was excellent very clean. Very convenient being on the garden level. The only negative was the hard bed. Otherwise I will recommend you to friends and family in the future.

We have plans to replace some of the beds this year so hopefully the next time you stay the bed will be more comfortable. If you get a chance would you mind letting the front desk know what room you were in so we can look into the bed? Thank you for booking with us, we look forward to having...
