Cayucos Shoreline Inn...on the beach
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Cayucos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 September 2013

The view was great and the room was good, it seemed like the owner had listened to feedback and acted on the comments to make the visit more enjoyable. Easily within walking distance of all amenities and restaurants.

Room Tip: If you want a seaview with a walk out balcony ask for a first floor room.

We stayed two nights here & loved it. We had an upstairs king room overlooking the ocean. The inn was very clean, dog friendly (we didn't have ours) with a grassy yard & beach access from the yard. Had the outdoor shower for washing one's feet--or the dog's feet. Just very friendly & family oriented. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony, having a glass of wine, watching people & dogs play & the beautiful sunsets. Out the front door is town with many shops & restaurants. What a quiet, fun place to visit. We would definitely recommend this inn to everyone.

Room Tip: Upstairs, beachfront king is a great room, although the downstairs beachfront is probably equally gr...

We stayed for two nights at the end of August 2013. Exactly as advertised: simple, clean, well furnished room with balcony overlooking the sea. Good fridge, microwave and coffee machine. Good breakfast which we ate on the balcony. Friendly, helpful staff and pleasant public room with books, coffee and cookies available. Just the perfect base for a short beach stay. Will definitely return. We enjoyed Cayucos and Morro Bay and this hotel couldn't have been better.

Room Tip: We liked the king bed room with balcony but the rooms with a small patio into the garden also looked...

We went back to Cayucos Shoreline Inn...on the beach this summer. We stayed here in 2010 for the first time, because we needed a place to stay while visiting Hearst Castle. We liked our stay very much and didn't think twice to stay here again during our trip along the West Coast this year. Our goal was to visit Hearst Castle again (yes, we love that place too!).

We loved staying at the Shoreline Inn again. We booked a room with partial sea view on the 2nd floor, with 2 king beds. Our 18-year old son was with us and enjoyed having such a large bed to himself.The room was very clean and quiet. the staff was very friendly and the location is just great. We enjoyed walking on the beach and sitting on the balcony reading while the sound of the ocean accompanied us. We only stayed for 2 nights, but when we left we felt so relaxed...we might have been there for a week, that's how relaxed we were.

One day we will visit Hearst Castle again and guess where we'll be staying? You're right: we'll be back at Cayucos Shoreline Inn...on the beach.

Room Tip: The rooms on the beach have a spectacular view. If you want a more quiet room, choose a room with pa...

Thank you for choosing to return and stay at the Shoreline Inn... on the beach during your trip to the Central Coast. Hearst Castle is a great historical landmark on the central coast and the small town of Cayucos offers excellent dining opportunities, as well as unique shops to browse. We look forward to seeing you on your return visit.

Stayed here with several girlfriends for a wine tasting weekend. We had a room in the lobby building, in "deluxe family friendly room with 2 king beds" on the 2nd floor. There were some tiny slivers of ocean viewable from our room, but mostly we looked out on to the parking lot between the two buildings. But it was worth it to skip the view in favor of a larger room since there were 5 of us. We could still hear the ocean when the sliding glass door was open.

Everything was very clean and the location can't be beat. You could easily walk to a dozen restaurants in the heart of Cayucos and the beach was readily accessible through a passage in the sea wall. With a very convenient outdoor shower set up on the lawn to rinse away any sand you might pick up.

There were a couple of odd things that I think come from the fact that this seems to be a family run business. Apparently if you call the front desk after 9pm, you're waking someone up and should only call if there is an emergency. Also, they only have actual keys for the rooms, instead of swipe cards. This meant that not all of us could have our own room keys which was a pain sometimes an I was constantly worried about misplacing them. Also, there is only one parking space per room, so if you have multiple cars, you have to find parking on the street, which wasn't entirely difficult, but kind of bothersome. In addition to that, several of the parking spaces are right underneath a tree that houses a family of birds that appear to be some of the most prolific avian defecators I have ever encountered, but the hotel has placed a large sign alerting you to this fact in those parking places.

Pros
- The location! Right in the heart of Cayucos. You can walk everywhere!
- Price. Compared to surrounding places the quality is great for what you pay.

Cons
- Lack of swipe cards to get into the rom
- Don't call the front desk after nine
- Only one parking space per room, no exceptions

Room Tip: Deluxe family friendly rooms are great if you have quite a few people. You can still hear the ocean...

Hi Ciyra,

Thank you, for your descriptive review. Our hotel is centrally located in the quaint town Cayucos, within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We are a family ran business that takes pride in our property. The main reason we do not use swipe cards on an ocean front property is because the ocean air will rust the slide lock and lock our guest out of their rooms. At check in we go over and hand our guests a sheet with the information needed to get them through their stay, which states our office hours. We are glad that you were able to enjoy and relax during your trip to the central coast in Cayucos, we hope to see you soon!

Wished we could have stayed more than one night. Friendly reception with cookies and an anniversary greeting on the message board upon arrival made a great start to our stay. Cayucos provides a walk to everything experience while enjoying the close proximity to the beach. Enjoyed the sunset view from our balcony, falling asleep to ocean waves, and a very good continental plus breakfast.

Thank you for your review “Cehoitt”, we are glad you and your dog “Sammy Sue” had a great time. We have three Fireplace rooms: one beachfront with a king bed and two deluxe rooms with an ocean view, fireplace and one king bed. The fall is a great time to come to the Shoreline Inn… on the beach. We have our Harvest Memories special at that time, as well as some spectacular sunsets.
