We are so glad to see that you enjoyed your stay. Did your son find our stuffed deer while you were visiting? We are so pleased to hear that the staff are doing an excellent job! We will definitely pass along this feedback. We hope you will be back!

What a lovely surprise! An ocean view pet friendly studio condo. What was cool was that each unit had an owner who decorated their own places. Ours was very comfortable and I loved the art prints. Niceties like dog dishes and blanket made it pleasant for our little dog too!

Great place for extended stay or one night. In town for business. Rooms are well appointed, very clean and have full kitchens and bathrooms, fireplace and living rooms. More room than a hotel. Nice to have kitchen capabilities. Canterbury Inn is well maintained and staff cares about your needs. Will stay here next time I'm in town. Local deer are...

We certainly love hosting business travelers especially since we know traveling so much away from home can be hard. Our owners take great pride in providing all the comforts of home. We definitely appreciate the tip on the one bedroom vs. studio. We heard that from a traveler just yesterday. We appreciate you booking with us and taking the time...

Stayed here with dog after vacating a horrid room across the street at Ocean Shores Inn and Suites. We had a one-bdrm condo room looking at the water (obstructed) on second floor (211). Although dated, it was clean, comfortable and spacious. They provided dog supplies as well. Very close to town and beach. Would definitely stay here again.

For our 42nd anniversary we went back to the Canterbury Inn where we had stayed shortly after our marriage. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The room was open with a great ocean view. Clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The gas fireplace added to the overall warmth and charm. As always we were...

Very quiet and clean. An older development but very roomy. Enjoyed watching the deer in the morning and evening. Town is about a mile away.Enjoyed the extra touches from the housekeeper. We had a one bedroom suite. Enough room to have privacy with living room, kitchen and bedroom. Would have liked to have been able to turn the gas fireplace...

Our room was well set up for friends and our dog. It was large enough for friends to come over for dinner and nice to have the dog bowls, towels and dog treats in the room. Bed is comfortable and we enjoyed the view and staff. Thank you.
