“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

We have stayed at Shoreline Inn several times and it never disappoints! We vacation in Cayucos often and if we don't rent a condo, we stay here. Lovely quiet beach, very conveniently located so an easy walk to local shops & restaurants. We always get a beachfront room and LOVE it. We giggled because the waves were coming in so loud the 1st night it briefly woke us up..... what a wonderful sound to wake to! Enjoyed watching sea otters & dolphin go by. It's so quiet there that I could hear sea lions "barking" out on a buoy a ways out. Although small, the rooms have everything you need..... coffeemaker, fridge, microwave & continental breakfast in the lobby. Our room could use some updating & although the bed wasn't uncomfortable, it also wasn't the best. Rooms are kept very clean & everyone is very accommodating. We will always return to this charming hotel. Love it!

Room Tip: choose a beachfront room... you'll love it

We are glad that we can continue meeting your expectations here at the Shoreline Inn… on the beach. The beachfront rooms offer a panoramic oceanfront views that is just feet away from the waves. We also have deluxe rooms that are almost double the size in square feet that are ideal for families or guest that like more space. We strive to continuously improve our property; we bought all new mattresses and updated our rooms in 2012. Our next project will be in January adding solar panels and repaving the parking lot.

We have enjoyed staying at the Shoreline Inn for the past several years. You always have a great welcome and the rooms on the beachside can't be beat. Family and pet friendly yet rooms are always very clean. Nice breakfast with yummy coffee to get you motivated for the brisk walk on the beach in the mornings. We love the central location of the hotel to everything this quaint beach town has to offer. Our stay over labor day was fun with the peddlers fair. Amazing olives, jams and olive oils from PappaJoe. We will reorder as we already used them all. Duckies, Schooners, Sea Shanty, Ruddels were amazing as usual. Only issue, and first , is our credit card was skimmed and charged twice on this trip. We only used the card for the room but had over sixty dollars in charges to a non existent company on the card when we returned. We will be back soon as we love Cayucos and the Shoreline Inn. Would recommend to everyone for a fantastic, romantic quiet getaway.

Room Tip: The ocean fronting rooms are a must. Upstairs a ill better view. Fireplace rooms are an added bonus...

Thank you for your fantastic description of what Shoreline Inn… on the beach has to offer, as well as Cayucos, Ca. We are centrally located in town and a very short walk to many great eateries and unique shops. Once you arrive at the Shoreline Inn it is very easy to leave your car for your walking shoes. We are sorry to hear that you had a problem with your account during your trip, which can always be a big inconvenience. We hope to see you soon on your next trip to the Central Coast of California.

We have stayed here twice now and it is permanently on our places to stay in Southern california list. We had the 2 king bed wheelchair accessible room, with a partial ocean view. The room is very spacious with comfortable beds, and a love seat, small balcony, and passably accessible bathroom. The location is what makes this place so great. The only motel on the beach with nice lawn and patio areas overlooking the ocean. It is right "downtown" and within easy walking distance of pretty much everything you want or need. The staff are friendly, the room very clean, and as I said the location can't be beat!

Room Tip: If you want the best views, ask for the beach front building, but the rooms are smaller in that one.

Thank you, for staying with us again during your trip to Cayucos, California. We always love to hear feedback from our guest and are glad that you enjoyed your Deluxe room with two kings beds. These units are almost double the size of our beachfront rooms, so they are ideal for families or guest that prefer a room with more space. We hope to see you soon.

Right on the beach with a lovely view. Everything you need is in walking distance. The room was small but comfortable with a frig, microwave and coffeemaker. The continental breakfast was good. They offer trays to take it to your room and eat on the patio while enjoying the view. Being dog friendly is wonderful, nice little shower in the back to wash off your feet before entering your room. Staff was awesome and very helpful.

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.
