It was reasonably quiet and the price was very fair. The swimming pool and exercise rooms were in the middle of a remodel and unavailable. All in all I was quite content with my stay and would continue to patronize in the future.

Great place -- comfortable, easy beach access, and the staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Loved that there was movie night for the kids, and the pool and hot tub were well maintained, as was the entire facility.

Great easy and friendly check in. We stayed in room 309 witch is right next to the elevator. That wasn't a problem luckily. First of all we loved the ocean view and the clean room. The bed was way to soft and we both woke up with sore/stiff backs. The bathroom sink was clogged and extremely slow draining. The rooms...

Thank you for bringing up the issues about the room. We will definitely send maintenance right up there to resolve this. Midweeks are less noisy due to less families visiting. Unfortunately our hotel was built 50 years ago and so sometimes you do hear a little more than you would in a modern hotel. Please let us know should you...

First time to Ocean Shores, really enjoyed the community and our stay at the Canterbury Inn. Very comfortable and clean room. Seeing the deer outside our room was a nice treat. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a great corner wing unit with fabulous view. The Canterbury has a great location, walking distance to so much, and a very friendly staff.

Thank you for the great review. Since all of our units are individually owned, we have been working with our owners to encourage owners to update their units. Some of the units have received kitchen face-lifts and new flooring. Please let us know should you book again and we can try to get you into one of those units.

Hotel has everything needed for a comfortable family get-away. Helpful and friendly staff. The two bedroom had plenty of space for kids and adults. Very clean. Kids loved the pool. We didn't have a dog with us but others did and were responsible with their pets, which we appreciated.

I cannot put into words how helpful and welcoming the staff was, we will always come back here when in Ocean shores. The front desk was friendly and went out of their way to help us many times, the cleaning staff were friendly and efficient.

We've been at Canterbury a couple of times now - once with kids in a 2 bedroom unit and the last visit was just the 2 of us in a 1 bedroom unit.
