Cayucos Shoreline Inn...on the beach
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Cayucos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2012

My husband and I picked the Shoreline Inn for the location and the fact that they allow dogs. Unfortunately, we received news that my husband's father died after our first night there. Consequently, we had to cut our stay short. When we booked our stay, we understood that we would still be charged if we needed to cancel. However, after speaking to the Shoreline about our situation, they offered their condolences and did not charge us for the second night. Although we were willing to pay for the second night, you can only imagine how nice it was for us not to have to worry about an extra charge while trying to make family arrangements. We will definitely go back for an extended stay at our first opportunity.

Now on to the facilities... The Shoreline has the best location and view. The offer many choices for breakfast and you can't find a location that is more accommodating to dogs. When we travel, we always bring extra blankets to place on the furniture so our companions can enjoy sleeping with us. The Shoreline provided us with sheets to place on the beds for the very same reason. This helped us out, as well as housekeeping. Our canine friends also got dog treats along with a clearly defined dog contract so we were aware of their expectations and there were no miscommunications regarding the possibility of additional cleaning charges.

We will be happy to patronize the Shoreline every time we are in the area :)

Thank you so much for your kind review and your description of our Inn. We are family owned and operated and do have a 72hour cancellation policy, but in extraneous circumstances such as yours we do make exceptions. Thank you also for mentioning our dog contracts; we try to make guests with pets feel welcomed as well and it sounds like you and your dogs had a wonderful time. We hope you and your family are doing well and that we will see you again soon.
Sincerely,
Laila Kollmann

We flew by the seat of our pants for our 25th anniversary and discovered this gem. Cayucos was amazing. Hubby and I are going back for our 26th. We stayed 2nd floor beach front and hopefully do the same this year. Romantic wine and cheese on the balcony watching the sunset. Everyone we met was so friendly. Can't wait to return this summer.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay.
We are so glad you and your husband had a great time. The 2nd floor beach front rooms are seen by many of our couples as quiet getaways from their busy lives. We hope you will visit us again this year for your anniversary.

We picked this hotel so we could travel with our puppy. That was terrific. We were traveling with friends (and their dog!). We had a room down from the office; our friends had a room on the water. Opt for the latter. Our room was noisy (from street and parking lot traffic), not as clean as one would hope, warm (without any feel of an ocean breeze/cross ventilation). Our pals' room had the view, the breeze, a small balcony... it made a huge difference. (the difference between 3 and 4 stars). The place is handy - right in town, on the water. There's a funkiness to it that might be a bit of an acquired taste.

Thank you so much for your review. Many of our guests prefer the beachfront building because of its location and views, however some of our guests prefer the deluxe building because of the room sizes. As we have continuously scored over 95% in the surprise inspections made by AAA, we would appreciate knowing how the room should have been cleaner. This would help us in servicing the Shoreline guests better in the future. We do hope that when you come back to Cayucos you will give us another chance to welcome you.
Sincerely,

This is our 2nd stay at Shoreline. I don't have one bad thing to say. You can't beat the location. My husband needed a relaxing vacation and he got it. This time we stayed in room 132, top of the stairs of the beachfront building. The fireplace was awesome. We never did partake in the breakfast because my husband isn't an early riser, but the coffee pot in the room did get use. The fact that this is on the ocean and dog friendly can't be beat. My brother has a condo in Cayucos but it's not dog friendly. We travel with our 2 dogs so Shoreline is absolutely perfect. We will be back just as soon as possible!

Room Tip: I haven't stayed in the lobby building rooms, but nothing can beat the beachfront, upstairs!

Thank you for taking the time and writing another review. We do always enjoy having you come and visit the Shoreline Inn with your pets. 132 is a very popular room and the fireplace makes it the perfect getaway. We’re glad that your husband received the relaxing vacation he needed and that we’ll see you again soon at the Shoreline Inn

I have stayed at other hotels in Cayucos and they don't compare. The location and personel service set this place apart from the others. The ocean building rooms have all been update and are great. You would never know it was a pet friendly hotel. We will back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: They are all great rooms, however I prefer the the ocean building 1st floor since I have a dog.

On the beach and within walking distance to everything. A killer barbaque for use if you want to q on the beach. The staff is the best always with on site manager Donna, one of the best
people you will ever meet. Sleep at night with just the screen door closed and hear the waves
all night long. Your pets get the red carpet treatment. What elese is thers?

Room Tip: down stairs in the back on the beach

Thank you for your kind review. A lot of our guests love to hear the ocean when they go to sleep at night and all our rooms allow for that. We also love spoiling our four legged guests with little treats and special attention. Thank you for mentioning Donna, she is a treasure. We’re so glad you had a wonderful time and hope to see you again soon.

After very stressful recent years, I needed a relaxing getaway and found it in quaint Cayucos at the wonderful Shoreline Inn where I stayed 4 nights. 3 nights in a beachfront room dowstairs, and extending my stay for 1 night, I moved upstairs. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean and I and Sailor (Eskie) just loved the 'dog welcome package' (sheet to put on top of the bed so pooch can sleep there, dog dish and a couple of dog bones). Though I brought my own dog towels, it was very nice to have a nice plush towel for him in the room so I was able to dry him off when I had to hose him down after jumping into a tide pool. He never sleeps on the bed at home but loved the bed(s) at the Inn. The breakfast was satisfying and the wine glasses in the room were a nice surprise.
I had brought a novel with me, but didn't read one line, nor did I watch t.v. for more than a total of 2 hours during the whole 4 days. Departure day actually made me sad, a couple of days later I remedied this by making my next reservation. I (and Sailor) can't wait...

Thank you so much for leaving a review. We are so glad you and Sailor had a wonderful time. Sounds like you just had a wonderful time to relax and that’s exactly what we’re hoping our guests can do when they just want to get away for a little bit. Thank you for mentioning the dog goodies we put in the rooms and the little extra things we do. We try hard to make all our guests feel welcomed. We will see you again soon.
