“Shoreline is spectacular!!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Shoreline is absolutely perfect. We have been visiting here for 40 years. It is very pet friendly,. too. The whole town of Cayucos is assessable by walking from Shoreline Inn. Great staff and rooms. Once you go, you'll definetly want to return.. SHORELINE INN is the BEST!!!

Room Tip: if you travel with a pet. always ask for a Oceanside bottom floor room. theres a sliding door to a...

Had upstairs beachfront room with fireplace great view great weather, fun to walk along beach in am to get latte down the street and then walk back along the beach!
Convenient for everthing in town, Italian retaurant deli now serves late lunch vegetarian and gluten free ! really good
Only thing that could be better would be breakfast , very basic nothing for gluten free folks etc but ok a free continental style that you can take to your room, good coffee.
Tip leave window open at night so you can hear the waves

Thank you, for your wonderful review of the Shoreline Inn… on the beach. The beachfront fireplace room is one of our most popular rooms at the Shoreline Inn, you get to cozy up with the warmth of the fireplace while being able to sleep with your sliding glass door open and hear the waves as you fall asleep. We will definitely take into consideration adding a few more gluten free items, we currently have hard boiled eggs and fruit as options. We look forward to seeing you again next time your in Cayucos, CA.

Didn't even stay there, they called me the day after I booked a room for late March, and stated they were going to charge my CC for a badly stained in the room. I told Donna we had not stayed there as of yet, our booking was for late March, she stated that we had been there the night before, I said NO we will not be there until late March, after giving her the booking number she finally found my booking, then just stated that their computer did it, no apology for the accusation what so ever, just a very rude individual, I talked it over with my wife, she and I both agreed that this is not the place we wanted to stay, who knows what they would find, made reservation at another place, called to cancel booking Donna answered, I said who I was and please cancel the room, barely got it out of my mouth she said OK and hung up very rude individual. I would think that you would double check before you call and state your going to charge someone CC. Don't know in what capacity she is there, but unless she the owner, she a rude individual, if she not the owner, she losing customers! we will not stay there and will not recommend the place! It's too bad because it got such good reviews that why we wanted to stay there!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay there if Donna the front desk clerk

Please accept our apology for the unfortunate experience you had with our business. Before the posting of your review, I had already sent you a letter regarding this incident. Donna felt very bad for the mistake she had no control over and corrected it. Our number one goal is to keep guests happy and she tried to remedy the problem and assure you of the high standards we have at the Shoreline Inn. Please note that Donna’s natural voice is more on the strong side and she cannot physically change that, however if you had the opportunity to meet her, I’m sure you would change her mind. She is well loved by our guests. We hope you will consider visiting us in the future.

We stayed 3 nights in an upstairs room with a patio that had a view of the pier and the beach (tho it was in the building that is closer to the street). Large room. Acceptable bathroom. We always appreciate it when a sink is NOT right in the room in a motel/hotel. Breakfast ok--but we don't expect much. Dog friendly is a real plus (we did not have our dogs with us but we would not hesitate to bring them here in the future) and there are dog-only and non-dog outside areas that are neat and accessible. It does appear that most establishments in Cayucos take dogs.
Only downside was that housekeeping on the third day was unacceptable. Days 1 and 2, fine. On day 3 it was clear that no supervisor could possibly have examined the room after the housekeeper was finished.
Be aware re Cayucos that on Mon and Tues you will not find a decent meal in town and you will have to go 5 miles down the road to Morro Bay or into San Luis Obispo. That may not be true in the dead of summer but it is during a reasonable part of the year.

Our room was upstairs facing the beach. How can it get any better? A full patio below with a grill and picnic tables. You can walk to just about anywhere in town, or walk the beach to Morro Bay or the beautiful public pier. This property is very pet friendly as well. We will be back!

Room Tip: The rooms in the building by the road are larger, but the best views are oceanside.

Thank you, for such a great descriptive review. This last year we have been working on our back patio in order to enhance our guest experience. We put in a new stainless steel barbeque pit, added pavers, and will be adding a few more picnic tables. The only way it can get better is if we were able to coordinate with the sea life for a little water work show! We look forward to seeing you on your next stay!

Great location! We had the beachfront downstairs room, only steps from the beach. Property is kept up nicely, and rooms are clean. Very dog friendly as well. Highly recommend this place. We had such a nice weekend getaway, and hope to be back soon.
