This is a place that seemed like it was really hopping in the 1960s and maybe into the 1970s. The entertaining history of the hotel provided in the info packet in the room told of celebrities that had stayed there in the past, such as Tiny Tim, Diana Ross (or was it Dionne Warwick?), etc. Since then, it seems to have retooled itself as a family-friendly and pet-friendly place. It is an L-shaped complex with a parking lot where you can park right in front of your door, and a circular restaurant in the middle. Like many others, we were attracted by their pet-friendly policy. I was surprised to see how many people had their dogs staying with them at the same time we were there, but by no means were we disturbed by excessive noise or anything else. It's a quick walk to the beach, and there is a good-sized grassy area just behind the hotel where poop bags and even a hose (to wash your dog off after his swim) are provided. We found the restaurant's food decently priced by mediocre, but then heard that it is probably the best restaurant in town. One last thing; this is not the only pet-friendly place in town. We were surprised to see four or five other signs on nearby hotels saying that they were pet-friendly -- probably not surprising seeing how well the Polynesian draws in the Seattle dog crowd. Still, we would probably stay here next time we came to Ocean Shores.
