A clean, quiet low-rise hotel located just across the street from the Pacific. Superb views (and sunsets) - - if you request the water view rooms (which, of course, are a bit pricier than other rooms). Nice semi-private patios to enjoy a glass of wine and the amazing sunsets. Staff was very helpful in making recommendations for dinner, etc. Breakfast...

Room 144 was everything Diana the manager said it was. 144 by the way is close to being the best accessible room we have stayed in, Spacious and price right with great parking and a...
