“You will keep coming back.”
Reviewed 17 June 2005

It's not often that we find a place that reminds us of growing up. The Canterbury Inn at Ocean Shores was indeed a great find, as we have looked for that feeling of a "week stay" type resort, close to home. This is it. Our room was basically a two bedroom condo, with all the amenities of home and ocean and city view decks. There is ample space to sprawl out, or just tuck yourself at an ocean view window and read a book. Of course, the kids loved the pool best! It did not feel like a hotel. The Canterbury is our new home away from home.

Stayed in a very comfortable one bedroom, apartment-like unit, with a full kitchen (I love to cook), bathroom, living and dining room. We visited in both December of last year and April of this, so we had unbelievable low rates during the 2 nights we stayed during the week. From the 2nd floor, we stood on the balconey and sipped our coffee, watching the waves and the occasional fishing boat move across the sky. We appreciated the big and WARM pool in December when we couldn't do as much beach combing and even hit the excersize room. The staff was helpful in organizing our activities and the whole place was spotless. We like the top 2 floors for the view, but imagine those with kids would appreciate the ground floor sliding doors out to the lawn...and BEACH!!

The Canterbury Inn is a feel-good, relaxing home away from home. The view from our room (315) was breathtaking. Comfortable sleeping arrangements for all 6 of us in my family, we absolutely had a wonderful stay and always recommend it to our friends.
