We had never been to Ocean Shores before and needed a short vacation. I read reviews on Tripadvisor and settled on Canterbury Inn Luxury Beach Resort. It's not a luxury resort. It's a large building and our room was a condo owned by a Seattle family, on the third floor. The room was small, but fine for our needs, with a nice view of the Pacific, lovely sunsets and we went to sleep listening to the ocean waves breaking on the shore. Also a nice indoor pool and hot tub, with a pleasant staff. Our big letdown, other that the $192 a nite, late in September price tag, was the town of Ocean Shores itself. We had been to Cannon Beach, Oregon and that was our main comparison. We couldn't find one nice gallery, one restaurant with a nice atmosphere, or decent art or crafts stores. The beach was BIG and you could drive on it, but it was exactly the same for miles, unlike the Oregon Coast. One friend told us later that they call it Ocean Snores. We agree. Nice to get away, but the next time we'll drive a couple of hours more and head for the Oregon Coast.
